Is this the 897 or 897xt?

 

Thanks OLC

How can I tell the difference? I tried looking for a model the other day with no success.

If I am correct the 897 was the first generation Hullavator and it supported yaks up to 33".  The XT was introduced and the gap between the cradles increased to 36" and other than that they are the same.   I believe that the only way to tell difference between the two is to measure the distance between the cradles at their furthest setting.   Date of purchase may help too..

I’ll measure it tomorrow night for ya. 

897 might be more like 31".  The outback is 33" and to get it to sit flush you needed to overlap the molding.

Either way 1st or 2nd generation I'll offer you $250, pick up New Brunswick next weekend.  Can make payment in advance.
