Our take on the Thule 997 Goalpost

by Kristen Schaub
Thule

Thule designed the 997 Goalpost rack to accommodate watersport vehicles and other extra-long loads on your truck. The Goalpost fits your 2" trailer hitch and features an anti-wobble design that keeps your load firmly secured. The height of the telescopic post adjusts easily for different sized trucks. All Thule equipment passes tough European safety standards for car racks.
