Camping in the DS with four people.... We do it all the time! I feel my secret is the good strong crossbars and a decent basket. Even cargo tray on the back hitch helps temendously! I don't have a picture with the cargo tray and roof basket full for camping, but you get the idea. I have some nice Rhino Rack roof rails and an old Rola roof basket that gets the job done. My rear cargo basket is a CarLoc brand I believe. The car can take the load, and my roof rails have carried hundreds of pounds of firewood and water and material, you just can't drive like a madman. But even under load the car does well up and down old forest roads. Don't be afraid to chock it full or put the middle of the rear seat down for longer items. Cheers!

Just noticing that all the websites which advertise the front runner slim Line roof rack indicate that DO NOT fit vehicles with NO sunroof.

Is that right? My ds does not have a sun roof
I have the pano roof and had the same question to them. It will fit. The way they word it is confusing. You should check with their customer service team first though.

Ah I see; that's unfortunate. Panoramic roof rails will work with your car though, if you don't mind a not quite perfect fit on the cosmetic finishers. Here's an old picture of my install. I cut the aluminum by hand and didn't bother to make it perfect, though you can probably make it a lot cleaner. View attachment 7690
awesome idea – what'd you use to cut the original finishers?
