My Ultimate Paddling Vehicle

I am so happy to join the ranks of Element owners! I had the good fortune to receive a 2005 EX AT in Rally Red for Christmas. My kayak is already on the roof and the back seats are removed for all my kayaking gear.

She got put through her trials early on as I picked her up from the dealership in the middle of a snowstorm! Love the AWD. Tomorrow is her trial run as a kayaking vehicle! SO HAPPY!

Welcome

Congrats on the E! Put the pictures up we all want to see it. Your first drive home in the snow. Awesome. Kayaking near snow? Really? how far away are you driving? I bought mine for my MTB, but kayaking is on the to do list. Love the E.

Here she is in all her glory. After we were done paddling I put the boat on the inside. 7'7" she fits with the passenger seat laying back, with room to spare.

We actually got more snow two days later for the trip. The E handles great on it. I never would've taken my Ford Focus out in that kind of weather. But I didn't have to think twice about the E. In fact, my friend, who helped convince me to get mine was out that day as well....
