I don't think the outback is a true RTK system. Ask them if you can get 6 miles from the base and still get a signal. Ask them if you you can use repeaters to extend the range even further. Ask them if you can save locations so you have the repeatability you are looking for. I don't know much about the outback but I know they do not call it RTK. The EZ-Steer will work with RTK and the Signal error will be under an inch you will have some steering error but I was able to take very old tractors and get the steering error to average zero. The nice thing about the Trimble RTK and EZ-Steer is you can always upgrade to the autopilot and use most of the equipment.
