The Even Keel is the best value I found to cradle my kayak on the top of my wife’s minivan. I own a Malone Microsport trailer, but my wife does not like to haul it all the time, especially if she is going out for the day paddling by herself. I had already invested in the kayak trailer, so I did not really want to spend much on another kayak transport accessory. The even keel has great support and will not damage the boat. It flexes to conform to the shape of the boat, making it very secure. I like that it comes with the straps to tie it down and it is very easy to install.
