It is not at all unsafe in Avventura as the roof rails do support some load and the rails are designed in such a way so that you can tie ropes through it.
This is not possible in Ecosport or many other cars with roof rails.
I tried to find a carrier for my Avventura . But then since the car was new in the market there was no roof carrier for avventura.
One shop guy told me that he can fit Xylo roof carrier with some modifications. But the cost would be Rs 8800/-++. I then thought its useless to un necessary spend Rs 8800 for a single trip.
The luggage did not moved a inch when we went up and down the slope till 4000 m at Chela Pass.
