Special order items take longer to ship

We want to make extra-sure you realize that you've added a special order item to your cart. These items take a little longer to get to you because we have to order from the manufacturer first. The "Est. Ship Date" is the date we expect items to leave our warehouse... so add your chosen shipping speed to see when it will show up at your door.

The Thule Hullavator Pro Carrier is a rooftop kayak carrier for boat transport. It doesn't just help you attach your kayak to your roof. With lift assist, it reduces up to 40lbs of your kayak's weight. Instead of heaving the behemoth up onto the roof yourself, the rack allows for side loading, then gas struts help you push it up onto the roof. Quite the arm-saver after a full day on the water.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The ONLY WAY to transport your kayaks My wife saw someone using the Hullavator system after a kayaking trip and couldn't stop talking about the easy loading onto the vehicle. We needed a way to transport 2 kayaks and considered a trailer, but after researching the Thule Hullavator Pro, we decided to go all in, and got Thule aero crossbars, Hullavator Pro and locking straps. This is the ONLY WAY to get our kayaks to and fro. We're both 69 years old and can manage loading/unloading with ease. And they are really quiet at 70 mph on the freeway. When not in use, the Hullavators store conveniently. And we don't have a trailer to store or drag around with our kayaks.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Confused Installation has been an confusing issue. I have the aero blade cross bars and confused on how to hook the hullavator up to them. Please advise.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Whistle but it works Bought this early spring. I love the ease of use. Only complaint is the whistle. Not like your normal wind noise. Like a high frequency if I was a dog I’d be going berserk tea kettle water is ready whistle. I brought it back and they replaced the plastic stripping. Still whistles.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Don't Wait Any Longer; Do It! I've spent years loading my kayak on my SUV. I've employed foam padding, blankets, and ropes to assist resulting in scratched paint, near broken mirrors, and a sore head from holding my kayak with it so it didn't fall while loading. I wish I would have bought this sooner! It was simple to assemble, install, and so simple to use.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing kayak rack!! I purchased this rack as I wanted to me able to lift my kayak onto my car myself. This lift definitely makes it possible. I am very happy with the product a d would recommend it to anyone. Makes getting on the water that more easier!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Learning to like it! BLUF: Watch lots of videos, try before you buy (if possible). Consider a trailer, or a winch and side ramp, or other methods of sliding kayaks onto your vehicle. This one is expensive, having recently jumped up in price, and still not including locks or better packaging and directions. I fell in love with the Hullavator Pro design (pneumatic assist to save our shoulders), until I assembled one and tried to use it on our 2013 Chevy Tahoe (OEM roof rack, Thule square bars with Thule Rapid Crossroad foot pack). It still requires upper body strength and mobility in different ways, and may shift some work to your knees and back, especially if you load and unload by yourself. MUCH easier with two people, and possibly a step stool or ladder, depending on your vehicle/roof rack height. My hacks for our Hurricane Pacer 16.5' kayaks: To load, lift kayaks onto sawhorses or tray stands, then put onto cradles (thanks to an over-85 y.o. YouTuber for that tip); Standing fairly upright (no need for a deep-knee bend or squat), reach under the kayak, unlatch and slightly lift each side of the kayak a few inches (so they don't re-latch), one at a time, then lift/push the kayak up, by the handles or the hull. I also moved the cradles up (in towards the center of the roof - see photo) for better (perceived) roof rack weight distribution, at the expense of being a little harder to flip up when starting the unload process. Assembly: The worst Thule instructions and packaging when compared to several Thule bike racks and J racks I've owned. Tons of parts needed cover their three different crossbar styles, and that's great, but all in a few bags and quite a chore to sort out. Would help if they were in shrink wrap with individual identification. Instructions identified six different bolts, I only counted five, hopefully no one will need the missing ones. Had to "gently persuade" the brackets down onto my Rapid Crossroad feet with a rubber mallet. Upper cradles now have two securing bolts which instructions say torque down BEFORE fitting to your kayak. Instructions weren't updated and still say loosen the knob to slide upper cradles to fit, but obviously you now have to loosen the two new securing bolts - just leave them loose until you fit to your kayak. Tip for fitting: Leave the kayak in the cradles with loose straps so you can tilt the kayak out for easy access to each knob and two bolts. If your kayak is significantly wider towards the front or rear where it sits in the cradles, you may want to adjust the lower cradles so your kayak sits more parallel to your roof. Per the instructions, definitely use the tie downs - this rack seems more wobbly than our Hullaport XTs. With assembly behind me and more practice using it, I do love the savings in load/unload time, being able to attach the straps while standing on the ground, and yes, it does save my shoulders.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Hulavator #2 We got our first hulavator about 5 yrs ago to help my 5 ft wife operate on her own. Ever since we have thought of getting a second because they are easy to operate, not a big deal to attach and have provided us more opportunities to kayak. Now we have our second and expect to have twice a much kayak fun.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great product This is my second Hullivator, and it has been improved since I purchased my first about 15 years ago. I belong to a kayak club that paddles in a different location weekly, so I need a good racks o carry my boat, Because I am short, and have a high SUV, the Hullivator Pro is early perfect for ease of loading and unloading. My only caveat is that, if you own a very low volume kayak (like my Betsie Bay Idun) you will have to add closed cell foam to the bottom of the cradles to make your boat fit. If this isn’t done, the tie-down straps will be about 5 inches above the kayak—so they clearly won’t hold it.

can this be mounted on a 2018 Subaru Outback 2.5i Limited edition?

Asked by: Jeff
Thanks for the question! You will need the Thule Rapid Traverse Foot Pack as well as the Thule Aeroblade in 47 inches in order to mount the Hullavator Pro Carrier to your new Subaru Outback. I included links below to both required parts.

Are the locking covers available as a replacement? apparently my LR fell off as I was repositioning them, and he chewed it, so it is no longer useable.
