It should fit. Bike frames that need special rack adapters for disc brakes or special spacing on racks are frames with the brake caliper up on the seat stay. Like this one. The brake caliper can obscure the rack mounting holes and the rack needs to have an adapter or other work-around to work.

But the Crosstrail's calipers are down inside the rear triangle, on the seat stay. Like my Roam pictured above. There's no interference with the rack mounting holes on the frame, and a conventional rack can be used. I prefer them, as the mounting area isn't as wide as it is on a "disc version".
