Looking at the Thule Hull-A-Vator to load my Propel or Radar kayaks onto my Jeep Liberty. Any of you have experience with that kayak carrier?

Wow, those are expensive. I know some people who have Yakima Hully Rollers, that might be a cheaper option.

Tallgrass, thanks for the Hully Roller idea. They have been replaced by the the Handroller and Deckhand. Have ordered a set of each.

I had a friend in Florida that used one. He was an older guy, in his early 70s and in good shape at the time. I envied him at how easy it was for him to load his Hobie Outback on top of his full size SUV with the Hullavator. Don't know if the thing held up in the saltwater environment but he was one happy camper with it. Considered one for myself last year but decided to go with a vehicle that it wouldn't work on.

I use them. The gas struts make lifting the kayak so much easier. I'm on my second set because the first ones the struts finally gave out. Sold them and that person replaced the struts and got it working like new. Expensive yes, worth it yes. My back thanks me after every trip cool
