1. Customer service was excellent- responsive and helped me get just the right rack at a great price..thank you!
2. Rack: Used on a 5dr Subaru Impreza. I'm a 5'1" woman with poor height advantage and not so great upper body strength. This was easy to install, works great for one-person loading.It does require some ability to lift and guide, but with a little practice, it was easy. RECOMMENMDED: Kayak dolly! This made the whole operation easier. For use, you just slide the frame back and it overhangs the roof edge. I recommend a moving blanket or rug to protect your car in case you slip...the rack itself works great, but I've fumbled a time or two and nearly scratched the car. The stern rests on the overhanging roller pad and you just feed your boat up onto the rack. As you do, the frame slides forward on your car. Tighten the 4 side nuts and then strap on with the Thule straps included.
***I considered the Hullvator, but for cost, wind drag (not too much with this one) and relative ease of use, this was an excellent solution.
