Thule 847 Outrigger II
Helps load boats
Our take on the Thule 847 Outrigger II by Crutchfield's Kristen Schaub
Thule's 847 Outrigger II retractable bar comes in handy when you're loading your boat up on a roof rack all by yourself. It fits inside a Thule standard load bar and slides out when you need to leverage a large load to your vehicle's roof.
Just slide out the Outrigger II, and lift one end of your boat onto the bar it rests there while you lift the other end of the boat up onto your carrier. All Thule equipment passes tough European safety standards for car racks.
