2019 Subaru Outback with integrated crossbars


Had a concern about installation since the user manual indicates there should be 3 contact points with the crossbars. When installing on my 2019 Subaru Outback with integrated crossbars, the bottom of the rack did not touch the top of the crossbar but tightened straight and securely. Also tried it on my old Thule square bars and it also does not have a contact point between the top of the bar and the bottom of the rack but is straight. Just contacted technical support and they said this was ok as long as it is all straight on.

I would totally purchase this product again


I purchased both this Thule Hul-a-port XT and a Hulavator so that I have a place for a second boat on my roof. I plan to use this for when my husband or my good friend go kayaking with me. I plan to use the Hulavator when I am on my own. So excited to be able to get my boat on the roof by myself.

I like the product.


I like the product but I am not happy with customer service. My package was delivered in a damaged states, and missing items. Upon calling customer service they advised me they could not do anything about it and I would need to call ups and make a complaint.
