Rated 4 out of 5 by from Pretty solid, but some niddling issues I haven't had a chance to use this yet, as I bought it so that I could transport the Kayak I intend to buy home from the store and then out for use. So this review is simply on the construction and assembly. It seems solidly built. Heavy duty steel throughout, and nice tight fittings. But they should have carried that over into the hardware. One of the carriage bolts rounded off while tightening the nylon locknut, and now it can't be disassembled until I cut a slot in the head of that bolt with the Dremel tool to try to lock it in place long enough to back the nut off. And seriously, 6mm carriage bolts? They should have been hex head for sure. The only other issue is the attachment of the two straps that stabilize it side to side. I guess you're supposed to use the holes in the upper section of the upright to secure the hooks, but on a Toyota Tacoma there are none showing above where the two sections join. It's tall enough at the lowest setting to sit level with a 480 Traverse setup with a square bar. Again, not a deal breaker. I drilled two holes through the upper section and bolted some anchors to it, which are probably more secure than the original idea of using the holes. All in all, it seems very well built, and very secure when put in place and strapped down. I don't suspect I'll ever have an issue with it in use. I'll update if I do.

can this rack support two kayaks for transport?

Asked by: raderanthony
The Thule GoalPost can carry up to 130 lbs. once the weight of the rack itself is taken into consideration. As long as the two kayaks don’t weigh more than 130 lbs. total, the GoalPost could handle them. You would need to carry them on their sides using a rack like the Thule Kayak Stacker:

Do you carry sectional kayaks? I've seen these from competitors. They have bow, mid section, stern, that slide together and buckle tight. You can have more than one mid section, ie 3 or 4.
