Roof Top Cargo Carrier with No Roof Rack?

With my previous vehicle, I didn't have a roof rack, so used a soft-sided rooftop cargo carrier. It had straps with metal 'hooks' that grab the frame around the roof when the doors are closed.

I am going on vacation in a couple weeks and luckily checked to see how the bag would fit on my new 2014 SE. This vehicle does not have a roof rack either. Unfortunately, the bag doesn't work. The frame is smooth with no edge for the hook to grab onto, so there is nothing to attach the straps to.

What do other people do as an alternative if they have a focus with no roof rack? Is there a cargo bag that can go on this roof WITHOUT having a roof rack? Or is the only alternative to get one?

Any idea on what it would cost to have a roof rack installed at the dealer?

Thanks!!

I see they make cargo bags with straps that pass through the vehicle too. Has anyone ever used one with their Focus? How well does it work?
