Hullavator works well enough but the two arms need to be close enough to grab the releases with both hands at the same time and the Hullavator weighs 40 lbs. and Thule has maximum load limit per side of roof rack of 82.5 pounds so only a 40 lb. kayak can be mounted without voiding the Thule warranty.

Back again, Michigan Mark. Quickie- Still have the 2 Hullavators. Still work great. (Read previous reviews). 59 yrs old mechanical engineer. I appreciate a fine design. Getting pricey, but you can amortize the cost over years I have owned to evaluate their worth.

The Hullavator has made all the difference in my life. As a relatively small woman, it has given me the freedom to load and unload my kayak without assistance. One of the best purchases I ever made. Whenever people see me using the Hullavator, they rush over excitedly. They can't believe how easy it is to operate.

Update!! Checking out what's new with Thule. Came across my review 2 yrs ago about the Hullavator. Still there, guess electonic media is forever.. Our Hullavators are scratched & sun faded. But will state all works as good as they days we purchased them. Again, nice product. I'm 2 yrs olded & kayak loading is still a breeze.. That's not only nice-- it's sweet.

Nice--- My son & I split the cost of a Hullavator 2 yrs ago. Good investment. We trade off using on both Ford Explorer & Mercury Mariner. Thought to do it again when I added 4WD truck with cap to the mix. I ordered a second last night, checking to see if new one shipped, I thought I would give a review. (Yea, son is splitting cost again, maybe this one I can keep on my vehicle.) -- Sale price & free shipping - great timing. We have a mix of different makes of kayaks from single to tandem seaters. Wts ranging from 45 to 80 lbs. This product works as advertised & is very durable. From highway driving speed to bumping down logging trails getting to that remote lake. I'm 54 yrs old & not as strong as when younger. This hullavator makes single loading easy again. Nice.

This system made loading and securing my kayak on my F-150 simple and easy. I am 5'4" and trying to load a 10' kayak on my truck would have been near to impossible. This system was simple to install, simple to use and impressed alot of people when I put it to the test at the Harbor just recently. Alot of people were impressed with the Hullavator.
