Hi, looking at the Thule 897 Hullavator. Reviews seem great, looks easy to use. Will use them on our new Pungo
120. Has anyone used this style? If so what did you think.

I live mine. We have a pickup truck with a very high cap on the bed (highest part is 8 feet tall from the ground) and could not load kayaks without this. Not cheap but solved a big problem for me. A real help for me 5'1" Wife!

The purchase of a set of Hullavators were the best paddling purchase I have ever made.

I would love to have a Hullavator. But I wouldn't buy one to use with a Pungo. I would take the $500-600 value of the Hullavator and I would get a better kayak, like the Delta 12.10, which is better than the Pungo in every respect. The price of the Hullavator plus the Pungo just about equals the Delta 12.10.

I found out that can not use 2 hullavators s as the weight of pun go it over 140 lbs more than the jeep can take. Did you use then Malone?

Do I read it correctly that you have a Jeep, if so which one..? .. With the weight of a Pungo, you can load it manually without any assist device like Malone Telos or Hullavator.. I used to load a Castaway 116 on my F150 truck by using a Thule outrigger bar..
