I tie down a 16' canoe on the racks on my RAV4. I shift it forward so I have clearance to the trailer. This works fine with a single canoe, but I don't think I could tie down two canoes without smacking the trailer in a sharp turn.
You can see that my tie downs aren't that far apart.

The canoe is 16'. The rack is a Thule. Very stable. The cross members are 30" apart. I center the canoe yoke between them. Hope that helps. Raz
