The fact the item is not easy to find on the web site is annoying. The fact the item is not available in neighborhood dealer is annoying. The item is a canoe loader.

It actually worked just as described. Very pleased that it met my expectations. Genius idea.

It works, but it seems quite rickety as nothing fits tightly. I would not dare strap the canoe onto the loader for traveling purposes as it seems to me to have too much give in all directions. When using it to load the canoe, the vertical sections move and I worry they will break after some time.


Makes loading and unloading my cedar strip canoe much easier. Works as advertised. Shipping was fast. Product description was not specific as to whether the rotation is supposed to happen at the top (near canoe) or the bottom (near hitch). I was under the impression it would rotate at the top, however, it seems to want to rotate at the bottom for me.

The product is not big enough to load a canoe. And was missing the carry bag. Ive emailed twice with no response.

Hi, Patricia! This product is meant to easily load a canoe onto your vehicle but does not have fifth wheel capabilities. Please visit your local U-Haul Hitch Center for more information on moving a fifth wheel. Thank you!

I have a jeep wrangler with a rear nounted spare...will this come out far enough from the receiver to clear the spare?

–Tom H 9/4/2014 7:58:58 AM

"The ball mount length must exceed the measurement from the hitch pin hole to the rear edge of the spare tire. For additional assistance on selecting the correct ball mount, please visit your local U-Haul center."

–Ronald 9/5/2014 1:33:57 PM

What else do you need to tie the canoe down to a older model car 1981 with a chrome bumber, both to attach to the bumper and to protect the top of the car roof (el camino- with a aerodymanic camper shell, so line of the roof with camper shell is not flat and no roof rack on it currently of course, any ideas or thoughts on putting a canoe on that?

–Marianne 7/23/2014 9:50:09 AM

In this particular case, we can only suggest you take your vehicle in to the nearest UHaul hitch Center. They can evaluate the situation and give you the best advise. Thank you. http://www.uhaul.com/Locations/

–Ronald 7/23/2014 11:28:00 AM

Is there a hitch extension where I can have this further back from my suv so canoe rides further back and not over front of hood? My suv does not have tie down hooks on front bumper.

–Richard 5/1/2014 6:32:26 AM

Our hitch pro writes: "U-Haul carries a variety of receiver extensions, please visit your local U-Haul center to find the best fit for your application."
