G'day All

I have friends with a new 200 landcruiser who want to travel with a dinghy on top. There are some boat loaders which seem to be quite complex. Any recommendations would be welcome. Thanks, Waz

Hi Warren.
Try this link. He makes boat loaders with electric winch for 200 L/c's, has one fitted to his own vehicle. I have no interest in this company other than I bought a loader for my 100 series and was very happy with the product and service.

Do a search in the Forum on LCOOL.org. There are a few posts there about boat racks (and how the spoiler gets in the way).

Lots of other info about the LC200 too.

cheers

Hi Waz
Check this one out. Newest on the market. Combines loader and trailer all in one unit and with secure motor storage. I have no ties with this company but I will be buying one. Top FRONT loading unit...don't have to unhitch caravan/trailer.

Hi Warren,

try this link - http://www.rhinorack.com.au/AccSubCategory_Side-Boat-Loader_52.aspx.

We have one of these and carry it on top of our Navara (previously on our Pajero)when we travel. The boat can be loaded and unloaded without having to unhitch the van.
Regards,
Heather G

I like the idea of get the tinny on and off the car with a mechanical aid, but the problem still remains about getting the tinny in the water if a boat ramp is the only access, or two people are needed to get it from the car to the water.

Has anyone got a reasonable solution.

Its one of the reasons I bought a porta boat.

This comes as a treiler kit as well as roof carry.

I have a loader from Almac (Bundaberg) which is a great piece of kit.
I see you are in WA. If your friends are also in WA, Custom Boat loaders (mentioned by Kev) are based in Perth and make an excellent product. WOrth giving them a call.
