I have an Old Town Discovery 133K (78lbs 13.3 Feet Long). I have trouble loading the canoe using the Reese Canoe Loader. Basically it attaches to a 2" Receiver with turn table top that you place the bow on.
I have had the canoe fall out as I left the stern. The Reese Canoe Loader is unstable and wobbles under the weight. I wrenched my knee almost torn it up bad and torn up my elbow (tennis elbow)
I am looking for more stable platform to load the canoe as single person. I am in my early 50s.
What is the better roof rack mfg? Thule, Yakima, or even the Inno IN 5420 Rollers? What about Thule Yakima Extension Arms on the roof racks?
I would like to load the canoe on its gunwales.
Any suggestions would be appreciated?
