The Outrigger II met our expectations by allowing my 5' 2" wife to load/unload her paddle board onto her 2015 Forester. By propping one end on the Outrigger, she only needs to lift 1/2 of the board weight above her head onto the rear rack. She's no longer needs a helper to load and unload. 820809

So, I spent at least 6 months trying to decide what direction I wanted to go in for a way to travel with my kayak. I spoke with several knowledgeable folks at etrailer as they had been referred to me by several yakkers. I wanted to be sure that whatever I got would safely carry my 10.5 ft. Axis Dagger on my Ford Edge at least 60 miles each way through the busy Atlanta area with no worries. I didn't want to be "that person" on the news whose kayak had flown off into traffic on one of our busy interstates! I finally decided on Thule products that would all work together: a rack that would fit on my rails that I could lock, and a carrier system that wouldn't break the budge but would carry my kayak hull side down and an extension bar that would help me load all 10.5 ft., 50 lbs. up on top of my SUV. I just got my extension bar so I haven't used it yet but I installed the other 2 on a Fri. night and the next day I was on the Chattahoochee River! I can honestly say that I knew I had the right system when I got to my destination and my kayak didn't move one iota! Very happy with what I purchased. 395996

This product (Thule Outrigger II) is exactly as advertised. It allows a lone boater to get a kayak/canoe up on their vehicle's racks without damaging the car. Only problem: Like the instructions say, ("Heavy corrosion inside load bar could prevent smooth operation. Clean as necessary") it was difficult to install. There were no instructions on how to clean the inside of the load bar. I had to shave down the plastic end cap and plastic stop on the Outrigger bar that goes inside the load bar. I got it to fit. 386463

Easy to put together. I have yet to put a boat on it yet, so I can't give it an excellent rating. But it's heavy duty, and I really like the rubber coating for no scratches! 377791

Thule and Yakima racks can't get any better I have them both I needed some extras for my Thule racks the TH847 helps with loading my kayaks the cross bar pads protect my kayaks from the load bars and the end caps well someone else had Thule racks and decided to take mine so I needed to replace them so the bars don't sing. Not everything is on my car so there is nothing to take pictures of 132730
