Since our kids are getting older (and not camping with us as much) and we are getting older (and it's harder to lift that canoe over our heads to get it onto the Suburban), it's real tempting trade in the Old Town to get a pair of light weight singles.
Did you see my earlier post about the Thule Hulivator. It makes loading a breeze and hold the craft securely. Use the link below to my kayak and you will see how loading is done. The unit has gas shocks built in that take the weight while loading and unloading.
The unit will most likely fit on your rails.
