Cheapest way to drive an 8x4x1' package from LA to Burningman?

I'm planning on building a Hexayurt and driving it to Burningman and back. I'm told that Hexayurts fold up into a package that's approximately 8x4x1' large. Unfortunately, my car is a 2002 Toyota Camry LE without a roof rack (and without rain gutters, so roof racks are challenging/expensive to install). What's my cheapest option that's still safe for a 1300 mile car trip?

I'm willing to DIY something if it doesn't take forever, but I don't want anything falling off of my roof and killing someone on a freeway. I'm taking 2 other people and all of our luggage/supplies, so I suspect the trunk is going to be fairly full. It appears professional roof racks are ~$350-500, and I'm seeing a few that might fit on craigslist for $270.
