Best accessory I have ever bought for my Kayak. It makes loading and unloading the Kayak from the top of my truck a breeze. Especially when I'm tired from a long days paddling and fishing.

I am a short person with a bad back. The Thule 897XT Hullavator is a godsend for loading my 70# SOT on top of my SUV. Some of the bolts/rivets on the cradles are rusting after 1 season though.

Review:
It works as advertised. Makes throwing a kayak on a tall vehicle a breeze. Austin Kayak had the best price and shipped it to MI same day. Hull support could be better designed. It consists of 2 fairly hard pads on both front and rear, not enough support for a hardchined kayak and could damage the hull if the user didn't add additional hull support in the form of foam blocks. Low volume kayaks also need a foam block on rear deck in order to strap the boat down. I also have a concern about the size of the bolts used to hold the apparatus on the bars. I could be wrong but they don't look heavy duty enough for the long haul and could fail. It's something that should be checked periodically.

Hullava Nice Product! We bought two, one for each side of our Chevy Tahoe, which is too high to use other racks without a ladder. My wife and I are not tall people. Now our kayaks pull down with very little effort to waist/chest height.

Great product! I hurt my wrist and knee this year and the Hullavator was my best friend to help me keep kayaking. Easy to use.
