    Ok update on this - I went with the carpet and 2X4 method and it worked pretty well this weekend, was good just to not have to do a dead lift of the thing and get it up over my head.

    I have the rino rack and it comes with a pole that attaches to the bar and goes to ground 90 degrees from the bar; can hold about 150 pounds with this pole, not too wimpy in my humble opinion. I use for my oasis. i use oldfloor mat to go under back keel, lift front onto bar, rest front on bar, go to back, pick up rear, push diagonal onto roof

    it's literally a rug wrapped around a 2X4 placed on the rear edge of the roof of my car
