    I have an odyssey that I use for transporting my two hobies. If I'm alone and take the Outback out, I use the Thule Hullavator. If I take the Revolution 11, I just strap it down on my square Thule bars since I can adequately car top it.

    I should have some pictures some where. With the 66inch bars I do have enough room to carry two kayaks with the Hullavator but I don't have enough "faith" to drive long distance with highway speeds.

    I just googled the hullavator. Wow I didn't know that kind of thing exists. Looks pretty cool.
    Ill probably first try to top it on the factory rack and see how it goes.

    Once again, I'm impressed with what kayakers do with PVC.

    FishingGeek showed great ingenuity.

    And Mike, I agree there is nothing cool about a minivan. Fortunately, I'm beyond caring about that. But they are comfortable and practical and they can haul a lot of fishing gear and luggage inside when a boat is strapped to the top. A good friend of mine shares your sentiments. He told me the only way to impress women while driving a minivan is to fill it with puppies or babies.

    That is hilarious....

    Utilitarian nature of a minivan cannot be beat. Or, that is what I'm convincing myself everyday.
