Help Loading Kayaks onto Crossbars on a Truck Camper Shell


We have our crossbars on top of camper shell. We have a 3500HD diesel so very high. Right now we have Sweet Roll saddles. We used them on a smaller 1500 truck and it was a chore to get them loaded. The saddles did not fit our kayaks very well. We have two Ascend D10 kayaks from Bass Pro. What would you recommend to make it a little easier to load. Any help would be appreciated.

The ideal solution to make it easier to load your kayaks is the LongArm # Y01149-1150 for a 2 inch hitch. It will make it so much easier to get the kayak up to the roof.

Another option is the Inno kayak lifter load assist # INA453. Instead of helping load from the back it helps from the side. Take a look at the video I have linked showing how it works.
