I paddle solo, I am smaller than the average bear. The Hullavator is a lifesaver for me. The cradle will ride up on its own sometimes, you need to be careful to check and give it a push toward the vehicle before loading or unloading. I have Yakima bars, we stabilized them with self tapping screws. I like mine, I can see where others may look elsewhere. You need to know what you what. I am not comfortable swinging my kayak around while on a stool to get it on top, and go off-roading in places where you cannot trailer. The best for me was using a Chevy Avalanche, which my husband took control of. It is OK though, the price of gas is so high he can have it.
