Thule Hullavator - $530.96

Thule's Hullavator is an elevator for your kayak. Instead of wrestling to get your kayak above your head or just sitting on the couch eating potato chips when you can't get the neighbors to put your boat on the car, the Hullavator does the work for you. All you have to do is hoist your kayak up to about waist height, and the gas-strut lifter provides the extra muscles to make loading and unloading a breeze. It can be attached to any Thule rack system and takes up 28in of load bar, so you'll still have plenty of room for your bikes and luggage. Now if you could just get the neighbors to help with the bikes, you'd be all set. - $530.96
