I have a roof rack solution for you. The only way that you can attach a basket like the SportRack Vista Roof Mounted Cargo Basket - Steel - 66" Long x 39-1/8" Wide SR9035-9036 without crossbars is if your camper has elevated roof rails. If you have raised rails on your camper, I recommend the Surco Safari Rack 5.0 Rooftop Cargo Basket for Factory Rails 50" Long x 45" Wide # SPS4550-1101 or the 84" Long x 50" Wide # SPS5084-1101. However, if your camper does not have roof rails, you will not be able to use a cargo basket without crossbars.

For an easy crossbar solution, I recommend the SeaSucker Monkey Bars Roof Rack - Round Bars - Vacuum Cup Mount - 48" Long # 298-SX6000B. The Monkey Bars come with the easiest installation/removal process out of any of our crossbar systems here at etrailer. Also, the Monkey Bars come with an impressive 150 pound maximum weight capacity. The vacuum cups work perfect on flat aluminum surfaces. With the Monkey Bars, you can attach the SportRack Vista Roof Rack to the bars.
