Features

Overview: The Thule Hullavator Pro lets you transport a single kayak on your vehicle roof-top, while providing easy loading and unloading. Its fold-out design with double extending arms lowers the kayak up to 3 feet (approximately waist high). Gas-assist struts help lift and lower the kayak, alleviating 40 lbs. of the weight, allowing a single person to load and unload their kayak. The corrosion-resistant aluminum and double-coated steel construction provides long-lasting protection from the elements. Each kayak cradle can be expanded to fit wide kayaks and includes 8 padded touch-points for maximum kayak protection. The Hullavator Pro includes two 9.5' kayak straps along with Thule QuickDraw bow and stern tie-downs for securing one kayak. The Hullavator Pro can be locked using optional Thule One Key locks (sold separately).

Compatibility: The Thule Hullavator Pro can be used with most roof rack load-bars, including the following Thule load-bars:

  • WingBar Evo
  • AeroBlade
  • SquareBar
  • ProBar
  • Xsporter Pro
  • TracRac-Truck
  • TracRac-Van

Q
Can I fit two kayaks that are each 24" wide on my 2018 Subaru Outback with the hullavator pro lift assist ? .
[ Bob  Jul 29, 2018 ]

I've looked through the information we have on it and Thule's site. I wasn't able to find anything about using this to haul 2 kayak's or the size of the support area for the kayak. I don't think it will be possible but suggest calling Thule on 800-238-2388 to see if they can help. My Bio: http://www.crutchfield.com/Support/Bio.aspx?bio=101
