Even working by myself, I had no problem attaching the hull-a-port to the factory rack on my minivan and getting my kayak (recreational type, 9.5 ft, 35 lbs) up onto the hull-a-port and securely fastened. The trick with the minivan is to use a stepstool. I have not driven much with it yet, but I did test it out and was impressed by how secure the kayak appears to be in the rack, even at highway speeds.

Hull a Port

Does this Hull a Port need the racks that go across? Or can it go on another way?

Hello. Yes, the Hull-A-Port requires a roof rack. If your vehicle does not have a factory rack, you need to start with a base rack system. Look into the racks by Yakima, INNO, Thule or Rhino-Rack, depending on which brand fits your vehicle.
