Yakima ShowBoat 66 Reviews
turtle rated this item 3 out of 5 on 8/29/2013:
I purchased the showboat so I could load my Frenzy ocean kayak on my vehicleinstead of squeezing it inside. Had it installed and haveused it 3 times and found I need a spotter while I load my kayak since I lift the full weight of it straight up onto the roll bar. Had I seen one and given it a try I would not have purchased it. I kayak with a group so someone is always there to help but when I get home I am struggling to pull it back far enough to tip it off the back....I have to use a small ladder to reach and that means I am on the ladder while pulling the kayak off. I have slipped once off the bottom step while I had the kayak on the showboat roller and drenched my back. The unit works fine but not for a short person. If anyone is thinking of purchasing this consider finding someone who has one and give it a try. Wish I had.

yakima showboat 66. what is the dimension (width) of the roller. I have a town and counry, and the roller looks wide. I wouldn't want it to be wider than the top of my car.
The roller is only about 24" wide, certainly not wider than any car.
Thanks, Rack Attack Boston
