I've more or less destroyed my car with loading bikes and kayaks over the years. Fortunately it's a disposable car at this point.
The rug thing works somewhat but it's awkward. The stern ends up on the ground; the boat doesn't seat well in the rear saddles; even with a rug you eventually damage the trunk and the seal around the rear windshield, . . . etc.
