I love this product


The hullavator is a fantastic product. having kayaked most of my life I found myself not getting out much as at age 67 it was becoming a struggle to get the boats on the suv. this product rejuvenated our kayak use almost immediately. I expect to continue to use this product for the next thirty years now that the heavy lifting is handled by Thule. Idid however find the directions to be totally inadequate. If not for Utube the process might never have been completed. Thule should correctly identify themselves as a parts accumulator and deliverer and not a Kayak roof rack manufacturer. Four hours to assemble the entire rack and carrier .

Think twice and do your research


The Thule salesperson absolutely told be that this would fit my boat, since my boat was only 34" wide. After have a complete Thule rack system installed, and a hullavator pro installed, the boat did not fit. The dealer told me he was surprised that they recommended the hullavator for my boat. Nice job Thule. FAIL.

No clear warning that is not compatible with Aerobar Edge


Thule essentially hides the fact that Hullavator does not work with Aeroblade Edge bars. Unbelievably frustrating to discover this during installation.
