Posted 22 May 2013You guys are on a roll. Just awesome.
Looks like a sweet shoulder season hike with mixed conditions.
Noticed you didn't photo the thigh deep creek crossing. Brrrrrrr.
Picked up a tip on L. Walker. Have to drive up there and check it out.
Posted 21 May 2013So the next question is can the roof handle a Thule hullivator? This could eliminate having to get up there all together
Hi Jim. My Hawk came with a hullivator and I used it for a season. I was impressed with the complexity of the mechanism, but it was fairly awkward and buying a second one would have been expensive. I sold it and went with the Yak 'hully roller + saddle' combo.
Using our step ladder, I can load a 50# 12' kayak solo, or with my GF, it's even easier to load. I mostly need the step ladder to do the strapping down, especially at the front bar. We can pop the top with both 'yaks up top, using the 40# gas struts, but that takes two of us giving the heave ho!
Hope that helps.
Posted 19 May 2013Love your enthusiasm, Cole. You got the camper at a perfect time for many family adventures.
Did you get a roof vent option? I used to transport our lab in the back on my Hawk, and she did pretty well back there.
Posted 18 May 2013I picked up my Hawk! Writing a trip report now but wanted to post a picture in this thread. I'm stoked!
Posted 16 May 2013Our step ladder came with the Hawk when we bought it. The previous owner stored it on the floor in the camper, but I didn't want it thrashing around in there while 'wheeling.
I figured a way to mount the ladder on the factory installed steps, but it's probably a one of a kind mount. It gets a bit dirty out there, but I like having a solid step ladder available. It's what I need to put kayaks up top, plus is a nice safe set of steps for the camper. (no pics , but if someone wants them, I'll take one)
