The Goodboy Hatchback Outrigger, V1, Surf Ski, and Kayak Car Rack: A rack designed for use with shorter vehicles.
The Hatchback Special is a specially designed rack with detachable ends and a modified V-bar configuration, featuring a shorter bar and extended ends. Initially crafted as a custom solution, it has quickly become one of Goodboy best selling racks.
For optimal performance, it’s crucial to ensure that the V-bars are precisely centered on your crossbars, both in front-to-back alignment. However, with hatchbacks and compact SUVs, accommodating a long bar without interfering with the tailgate can be a challenge. Shifting it forward may lead to instability and excessive stress on the front crossbar.
This is where the Hatchback Special steps in. It features a 5-foot bar with one-foot ends, creating a total rack length of 7 feet. Sufficient for your 21-foot boat.
Please take a moment to review the important fit notes below to ensure an optimal match for your specific vehicle and watercraft. Elevate your transport game with the Hatchback Special – a tailored solution for shorter vehicles.
