The Thule Hullavator Pro kayak carrier gives your back and shoulders some relief as it helps you lift your boat onto your vehicle's roof rack with up to 40 lbs. of hydraulic load assist.

Let the Hullavator do the heavy lifting and rest assured you can always get your kayak securely on top of your vehicle – even on your own.

It shouldn't take a village just to get your kayak to and from the water. With up to 40 lbs. of hydraulic load assist, the Hullavator turns what can sometimes be a wresting match into an easy process.

This carrier with lift assist comes down along the side of your vehicle so that you can load your boat and strap it to the carrier at waist height. No longer will you need to stand on your running boards or a step stool to position and tie down your boat.

The arms of the cradle adjust to accommodate your boat's hull, and padding helps protect your boat from getting scratched. Folding arms with gas struts deliver your boat in the cradles up onto your roof for transport.
