I'm looking at getting a roof basket. I have no need for crossbars by themselves. Are there any basket companies / models that mount the basket directly to the vertical rails so I can avoid the extra cost and height of crossbars?

Seems like this would be an obvious lower cost option and that crossbars are a redundant mounting platform if you already have rails, but my search is coming up short.

I can't suggest anything, I too came up short on that search. I ended up purchasing the Malone universal cross bars for a pretty low price compared to what else was on the market. They fit well (very sturdy), were easy to install, come with locks, and don't really add that much height. Got lucky on a deal for the Yakima Load Warrior basket, which mounts well to the cross bars. I'd be interested to know if there are any direct mount baskets, because I didn't find any. Good luck!

A Surco Rooftop Cargo Basket would suit your needs. There are several sizes available on eTrailer.
