Hello KayakBros and welcome to JKF!!
Your survey is/was interesting and I figured that I would start the answers you might get in here.

(1) Age: 72...will be 73 in March, 2018

(2) Gender: Male

(3) Yes
(4) I have approx. 900 kayak fishing trips since 2002.

(5) I normally haul only one (1) kayak, but occasionally take two (2).

(6) (A) I drove a Toyota Corolla with a Yakima roof rack for approximately 10 years and 700 kayak fishing trips.
I have worked at an outdoors gear store here in JAX, and I rate roof racks in terms of quality, durability, and features: Yakima, Thule, and Malone.

(B) I now have a Toyota Tacoma pickup truck with a Darby "Extend A Truck" hitch extension that I have used for almost 4 years...excellent product and a fair price.
The BooneDox T-Bone is also a very good product and excels in hilly areas.

(C) Trailers meant for multiple or heavy kayaks are very nice and not really too expensive. Your vehicle must be adapted for a trailer hitch, and rigging with lights is a good plan. Converting small jet ski trailers can be a very smart way to go!!
Can range in pricing from several hundred dollars to several thousand dollars.

(7) I have never been injured loading or unloading my kayaks...although I have tweaked my back a couple of time...not too bad for a 72+ year old phardt!!

(8) Probably so...please show me the product or use me as a consultant.

(9) There is a VERY WIDE RANGE OF PROCUCT PRICES. Racks can be a couple of hundred dollars and trailers can be a couple of thousand dollars!!
Hope this helps your "school project"...and BTW, your email link did not work for me!!

John, you are not going to be young forever, you may eventually need such a product! You've got me beat by a couple three years and I've already succumbed to a trailer, then again, my rig now weights 140# before propulsion device is added.
