    On my 2016 Subaru Outback I have the Yakima SweetRoll roof carrier for my recreational and fishing kayak. To load the kayak by myself, I was using a suction cup mounted roller on the rear window. However, if I forgot the roller, I had to get help to load the kayak. I just installed the ShowBoat 6...read more

    I have used this product going on four years. Follow the instructions and you will have zero issues. I use this on my Explorer for transporting around an unwieldy 17 ft., 80 lb. monster of a canoe at only 5'6''. At the boat launch people are like, "you need some help?" Not with the Sho...read more

    I use this to load a 15' SOT kayak onto a 2014 Subaru Outback. The round bars bind making it difficult to extend. Also, the roller clamp affixing the roller to the round bars won't tighten enough to keep the roller from pulling off. A poor design that can be remedied by drilling an appropriate hole...read more

    Bought this to load kayaks on my Chevy Tahoe. Works great. Keeps from scratching the car finish and makes loading easier. As an earlier reviewer mentioned, I did through bolt the roller attachment to the round bars. I would also through bolt the stopers as one of those and an end cap were pulled...read more

    Using this with factory Audi crossbars, 2015 SQ5. carrying a 14' kayak, 40# before fishing gear.

    Components are durable, well thought out seem durable. Variable crossbar clamp styles, etc. One exception, the "red lever" tighter, both have blown off.

    We loaded our first canoe on the roof of our 2006 Explorer (with factory rails/cross bars) thinking "How hard could it be?" Following this experience I found the Showboat 66. This product makes loading an unloading our 80lb canoe a breeze! My wife and I can get the canoe on and off the ...read more

    I purchase this item for my 18 foot tandem kayak.I needed something easier to load the kayak without scratch or damage to vehicle.It is so much easier to load my kayak
    now. I would highly recommend Showboat 66.
