Purchased in December 21 after researching how to cartop kayak, and doing so with rented kayak using manual methods. Before I bought kayak had to be able to cartop up and down by myself, at 5' 3" petite senior woman. All other methods saw had to deadlift kayak part way, which wasn't doable for 12' yak.

Saw diy videos using pvc pipe or 2x4s that were in right direction but left 10' pipe to haul. Then saw Easy Rack Ramp and seemed to be practical and company had worked out bugs. So bought it and able to load at sunrise in driveway, at rocky shoreline, etc a 11.5' SOT kayak, including after a day paddle. Quick to assemble or dissasemble, easy attach to suv side rails. I load upside down, so roll kayak to ramp, flip it upside down onto ramp, remove cart, and slide up onto crossbars. I can stop part way up and get under it better and ramp poles have no sag. The poles have looser joint and velcro together, so the wet or cold or desert 100' temps wont cause pole segments to stick together. The velcro twists leaving gap so always able to remove it. Poles are thick walled also. All in all it solves the problem easily and simply!!!

I love the concept! I have been doing something very similar using PVC pipe, but it doesn't pack as tight in the car and is sometimes in the way of passengers. For those using this system, based on my experience, I do recommend that you load by sliding your boat up the ramp with the cockpit facing the vehicle and then roll the boat into the J-hook cradle vs sliding the boat up on its bottom and placing pressure on the back of the J-hook to position the boat in the cradle. I damaged one of my J-hooks by placing too much pressure against the back of the J-hook while trying to rotate my boat into place before learning that its so much easier to simply roll the boat into place from the top of the ramp.

This rack ramp was a game changer for me! I can easily load my 12' kayak now onto my roof rack alone without issue! It shipped within a couple days, came within a week, and is super easy to set up, use, and store. I highly recommend this for paddlers who often go solo at some point in the process - makes loading and unloading a breeze! Customer service folks were really nice, too. Great product!

I purchased the Easy Rack Ramp immediately upon reading about it in Paddling Magazine. An elegant and simple solution! Alternatives are expensive and complicated. I can now put my Delta 16 on and off the roof of my Kia Forte with ease. No more worrying about getting help at the launch site from passers-by. I know I’m paddling more. Anyone can use this fantastic advance in kayak transportation. Totally - easy peasy lemon squeezy!

I am short, not as strong as I once was and usually paddle alone so putting my kayak or canoe on top of my car is a challenge. Easy Rack Ramp makes it so much easier. No need to worry about dropping a canoe on my car or myself! I just slide it up the ramp. Getting it off my car is just as easy, it slides right down. Overall I really like the ramp for its' simplicity and usefullness.
