Roof Rack/Cargo bars for 93 300E?

Hi, I have a '93 300E, and I want to mount some racks on it to carry couches, beds, etc, to my new apartment. It doesn't seem to have any provision for it, but there are generic racks that strap to the top through the windows.

Any experience or opinion?

My 1991 300E takes Thule footer type 030 with Aero Footer 400 and a 50" crossbar.

The Thule website's FitGuide doesn't show options for our cars currently. The instructions with the 030 footer specify a 52" bar or longer. I have both 52" and 50" bars and found the 50" are sufficient and don't protrude beyond the roofline.

I've found my setup to be very robust. I'd be confident strapping a couch onto it as long as it wasn't a sleeper couch. I think temporary strap-on roof racks wouldn't be secure enough for your needs and could result in a variety of misfortunes.

If I were closer, I'd lend you mine. You might find a set inexpensively on Craigslist where you could resell it when done if you liked.
