I absolutely love my hullavator. It allows me to get my CLC Shearwater onto a Hyundai Santa Fe by myself efficiently. Priceless! After drooling over it for about a year, I finally bit the bullet and shelled out the cash. The price is steep, but for me, oh so worth it. Loading my kayak is almost effortless! I use it with the aeroblades and the only issue I have with it is that one of the bar mounts sits slightly askew on the aeroblade making it difficult to get the holes lined up to slip the pivot pin through. The other bar mount sits atop the second aeroblade fine. I do use a small folding step stool when attaching the arms as I am 5'3' and have a tall SUV. I think with more practice I will be able to ditch the stool. Overall, I love it and wish I would have gotten it sooner. When installing, use YouTube videos as a guide and it's not bad. I love it!
