Will Yakima Mighty Mounts Work on 2020 Subaru Outback Factory Roof Rack


Still waiting on Yakima to do something about a Landing Pad set up for the 2020 Outback roof rails so I can use what I already have invested in the different set ups for my round bars instead of looking at more and expensive options. In the meantime, I was looking at something like a Yakima Universal Mighty Mount and a Roundbar SL Adapter to put on the Subarus factory rails. I know that these factory rails are sort of flimsy and wont support the same weight as a good solid roof base would. Would something like that work? And what part numbers are we looking at that would fit? I would prefer a good, solid, Landing Pad set up for my round bars so I could get both my wife's kayak and my 15 foot canoe up on the roof. The Landing Pad set up would give me a wider and more solid spread, where the factory rail set up would only be about 2 1/2foot - 3foot at the most which would work for shorter non freeway speeds. Let me know what you think and if you can suggest any other options.

I confirmed with Yakima that the factory crossbars of your 2020 Subaru Outback are compatible with the Universal MightyMounts for Yakima Roof Mounted Accessories # Y03590.

They will not work with a round bar adapter though, they would only work with Yakima accessories. If you wanted to use these MightyMounts with accessories you could but they won't work with any adapters, because they are adapters themselves.
