Pickup trucks are great for transporting all kinds of cargo, but what do you do when that cargo is much bigger than the bed, maybe even as long as the truck itself? When it comes to transporting watercraft like kayaks, canoes, paddleboards and sailboards, Thule has the answer with the Goalpost Canoe Carrier. When used with a Thule roof mounted rack load bar (sold separately), the Goalpost can support and safely transport any watercraft that could be carried on the roof of a car. The Goalpost mounts to 2" receivers only and the telescoping mast adjusts to the height of the truck cab. At the top of the mast a 58" Thule steel load bar is mounted, which is covered with a durable plastic coating for long service life.

Two load stops are supplied for the load bar to help stabilize and hold the load. The included anti-sway straps connect the mast to each end of the vehicle's rear bumper for stable, secure transport. The watercraft must be secured to the load bars with load straps (sold separately) and the bow and stern must be secured to the front and rear of the vehicle with tie-downs (sold separately).

Besides watercraft, the Goalpost is ideal for transporting other extra-long loads. The Goalpost Canoe Carrier comes with everything necessary for installation, including detailed instructions. The limited lifetime warranty applies to the original purchaser of the product, and warrants the product against manufacturer's defects in materials or workmanship.
