Hey all, I recently got a new truck and need a rack for my yak when I pull the trailer. I am not getting any younger and my back is not getting any stronger so I'm willing to spend the cash if I can make it easier on my back. I am looking at the Sliding TracRac as I will take it off when not pulling the trailer. The Hullavator 898 pro might work if it can handle the 85 lb. Hobie Outback or is it better to go with the Yakima hulley rollers. Any experience you can enlighten me with would be much appreciated.

Remember to practice safe knots, because big fish don't just break your line, they also break your heart.

Does this new truck have a shell on it? If so the Thule Hullivator seems to work well.

I have the Yakima Boatloader arm which helps when loading solo and tired.

If no shell, the Yakima Drydock could work.

Thanks for the Intel,  no shell on it, l'll check out the Drydock

I had a Trac One from Home Depot. It was very easy to install and quiet. I think it was $300 new.

The sliding tracrac can be found on Craigslist for $200-250. They are semi vehicle specific meaning if you are handy you can drill the sliding rails to mount to any truck bed.
