We installed crossbars and kayak racks onto a 2021 Audi Q3. The crossbars and kayak racks were manufactored Thule. On this setup, the kayak rack known as the Thule Hullavator is mounted into the channel of the crossbars. The Hullavator is equipped with a gas strut to help ease the process of loading and unloading the kayak as it comes down to the side of the vehicle. The load capacity of the Hullavator is 75lbs per boat.
