Roof Racks & Crossbars For Subaru Outback

The Subaru Outback has become a very popular vehicle in the past decade. thanks to the reliability and safety that Subaru offers to its users, it has gained traction as a brand to trust, which in turn builds great cars.

The Outback is one of the best and most recognized models from Subaru, and recently, it has also become a preferred choice amongst overlanders. The 5th generation, born in 2015 was a cross-over model, making this a rig to put an eye on.

The 6th generation, which was unveiled this year, maintains the cross-over body, as well as coming in a 2.5 liter FB25 and a turbocharged 2.4-liter FA24 version.

Now, enough with the background and down to the racks. The Outback can be outfitted in many different ways, being a very versatile vehicle, it'll look good with aftermarket mods for overlanding, as well as simple upgrades to carry what you need on a daily basis.

At Off Road Tents we offer a wide range of cargo carrying rack solutions for your Subaru Outback, all the way from the 1990s to the most recent years.

We highly recommend getting a full platform rack, especially if you plan on carrying larger weights on the roof of your Outback, or if you have plans of using it for off-road, overlanding or wheeling purposes.

A roof rack platform is usually a platform that'll go on the roof, attached to the mounting points of the vehicle. It can hold more weight than usual, generally around 500 lbs or more of static weight capacity, which is when the car is parked.

If you want your Subaru Outback to carry a roof top tent as well as other accessories or gear, a platform rack is a great choice, as they are better built and designed for these purposes.

Here are the roof racks that we sell:

Take a good look at all the options, depending on the year of your Outback, you'll have to get a different model. For example, if you own a 2021 Subaru Outback, then that's considered a 6th Gen and there are newer rack models specifically designed for it.

If you are looking for a cargo carrying solution that's more affordable and won't be needing to carry ultra heavy loads, then a set of crossbars will be enough for your Subaru Outback.

We have both Thule and Rhino-Rack as cross bar options, and both are strong, reliable and enable you to carry almost everything you want, from tents, to ladders, boards and more.

The cross-bars we have for you Subaru Outback include:

Take a look at the different types of mounts, as the load rating might vary between one type of mount and another, as well as the ease of installation. Overall, crossbars are much easier to install, and are a quicker solution, but don't really work as well for overlanding purposes for your rig as a full platform rack.
