Best for Loading and Unloading
ECOTRIC J-Bar

This lift system by Thule can be of great help to you if you are planning on solo kayaking. The Hullavator might seem pricey at first, but when you evaluate the benefits of having a tool that allows you to load and unload your gear without any assistance, it becomes a worthy investment.

The rugged steel construction of the rack is equipped with the adjustable padding that helps you place the gear in your preferred position.

You don’t need a specific brand of crossbars in order to fit this rack on them. Most flat, oval, square, and round crossbars will work. The mounting hardware along with the straps is included, so there is no need to purchase anything separately.

Feel free to load your rack with equipment weighing up to 165 pounds (!) and embark on your kayaking adventure with the peace of mind that nothing will fall off the rack along the way.
