Hi there, so, very close to throwing the hammer down on a 2018 Outback 3.6R up here in Canada. The trim I am looking at is the Touring, which in Canada, is the base trim model that comes with the Integrated Crossbar/Rail System. I would like to throw a rooftop tent on my car, but will need crossbars that can take up to 160lbs of dynamic load. The factory, integrated crossbars are only rated for up to 150lbs. Can someone point me to aftermarket rails that can get me to the dynamic load limit I need, that works with the clunky rails?


Also, getting the euro-rails is not an option for me as it requires me to fork over an additional $7000 (in Canada, it's only found on the limited trim, which I believe is more or less equivalent to the US Touring trim). Thanks a bunch!


P.S. I've been looking at this product from Front Runner, they seem to fit into the factory mounting spots, just not sure if it can hold the a 160lbs hardshell rtt tent (looking at the James Baroud XL sized tents). Thanks!
