Video Transcript for Review of Yakima Trailers - Tongue Extension Kit - Y08109

Hello everybody, this is Jeff at etrailer.com. Today we're gonna take a look at this tongue extension kit for your Yakima RackandRoll trailer. Now, this is designed to work with the Yakima RackandRoll trailers manufactured from 2009 and later. Basically, adding this tongue extension will allow you to haul longer loads The overall length when this is installed into your tongue will get you another three foot in length. And I wanted to pop up an insert to show you we're talking about. There's a picture of the Yakima RackandRoll trailer.

It has a cargo box, some bikes and a kayak on it and you can see the long tongue in the front there. So basically you can take that tongue off and then add this extension to gain an extra three foot. And that extra extension of three feet to the trailer will upgrade the capacity of that trailer from being able to carry a single 17 foot long or two 16 foot long boats to a single 22 foot long boat, or two 21 foot long boats. And basically to add this three foot extension to your trailer, what you'll do, as we mentioned you'll remove the standard tongue from the trailer and then insert the shank end right here of the extension into the standard tongue. Line up the holes right here, and then use these included bolts and nuts to secure it.

And then what you want to do is you wanna make sure to plug in the included four-way wiring harness extension sits on the inside of this extension to the standard tongue connection. And then you'll extend it out the back of the extension. And just to show you we're talking about I'm gonna zoom in and lift up this end. And you'll see there's your four-way plug right there that you'll be plugging in. And then on the other shank end, you'll have another four-way plug.

So you wanna make sure to make those connections when you put it all together and tighten it down. And then what you'll do is you'll slide the whole tongue assembly with the extension installed into your Yakima trailer and then plug the four-way connector into the four-way on your trailer. Now, the shank portion right back here is a little bit smaller. This is what'll slide into your tongue. This will measure one and a half inches square.

And then the other end here will measure your normal two inches square. But that should do it for the review on this tongue extension kit for the Yakima RackandRoll Trailer.

Added the extension because I am now towing my Yakima trailer with a sport utility vehicle with the spare tire mounted on the back door so I needed the extra length. I also wanted to be about to open the back of the truck with kayaks attached. The extension was perfect and it also rode much better with the added length. I had no side-to-side sway at 65 mph with four kayaks (two 14ft and two 12 ft) and three surf boards. I used to get a pretty decent amount of sway before. Glad I finally invested in this.



by:

I haven’t had the opportunity to use it yet, and it’s still in its box in my garage. It’s good to have it on hand in case I need the extra length on my Rack & Roll Trailer. Based on the quality of the trailer itself and the quality of the trailer accessories that I’ve purchased, I’m confident that the Tongue Extension is a high-quality piece.

Tongue extender for Yakima Rack & Roll trailer. Extender appears to be made of quality material. The internal electrical extension was installed in the tongue backwards, necessitating a removal and rethreading. The instructions didn't mention the presence of a ground wire that had to be connected to the frame on the existing cable harness. Since it was neither mentioned, nor shown in the instruction photos, I foolishly ignored it, and of course the lights didn't work. I had to pull out enough of the harness to splice onto the ground line, then re-pull harness and ground into the tongue. Of course the head of the ground screw twisted off and I had to drill a new hole in the tongue (what is it made of?) for a new ground screw. After all this aggravation the lights worked! I'm happy with the final installation, but feel the directions were serious deficient in discussing the grounding issue.



by:

Tough item to purchase. E trailer came through. This extension will adapt my trailer to load a 18 foot kayak.

  • Is 1-1/2" Insert for Yakima Rack and Roll Tongue Extension Kit Available Separately
    We have the replacement 2" x 2" Rack and Roll Tongue # 8880204 but if you're needing that inner piece on the Tongue Extension Kit # Y08109 then that's only available with the extension kit so you'll need the whole part number.

  • Yakima Rack and Roll Tongue Extension Kit 8008109
    The Tongue Extension Kit for Yakima Rack and Roll Trailer # Y08109 adds 3 feet of overall length to your Rack and Roll Trailer like # Y08107. I reached out to my contact at Yakima and they said they acquired the trailer in 2009 and it was being made back in 2006 and they have had no problems with the screws you mentioned having any issues whatsoever. He said they haven't considered changing it because they have not experienced any issues. If you were to alter it by drilling and putting...

  • Can Longer Ball Mount/Extender be Used Instead of Tongue Extender on Yakima Rack'n'Roll Trailer
    You could use a hitch extender or a longer ball mount with the Yakima Rack'n'Roll trailer # Y08107. However there are a couple of issues. First, a hitch extender will reduce the tongue weight capacity of the hitch by 50 percent. this may not be an issue though considering the trailer is rated for just 250 pounds. Depending on the length needed though there may not be an extension long enough. The same goes for a longer ball mount; at least if used by itself. The longest fixed ball mount...

  • What Size Boats Require the Tongue Extension for Yakima Rack and Roll Trailer
    I do recommend adding the Tongue Extension Kit for Yakima Rack and Roll Trailer # Y08109 when carrying boats over 16 feet long with a Yakima Rack N Roll Trailer # Y08107 since it will prevent the boats from contacting the back of your vehicle while turning. It likely isn't going to be completely necessary since it's only about 6 inches of difference and you could likely just slide the boats back 6 inches, but adding the extension ensures there's no contact with the vehicle when making a turn.

  • Dimensions of the Yakima Rack N Roll Trailer When Folded for Storage
    When you store the Yakima Rack and Roll Trailer # Y08106 the trailer will be approximately 6' long. The tongue would be need to be removed when stored so the extension won't add anything to the store height since it'd get removed anyway. Also, the Tongue Extension Kit for Yakima Rack and Roll Trailer # Y08109 would add 3' to your trailer. So the Yakima Rack and Roll Trailer # Y08106 would affectively be 14' long.

  • Recommended Tongue Extension For Yakima Rack And Roll Trailer For 16-1/2 Ft Canoe
    To be on the safe side I recommend the Tongue Extension Kit for Yakima Rack and Roll Trailer, part # Y08109. This is designed to allow you to be able to carry longer boats on the Ranck and Roll Trailer without having to shift the canoe one way or the other. Using this extension will allow you to be able to carry a boat up to 22 feet long.

  • Is a Tongue Extension Needed for a 17 Foot Boat on a Yakima Rack and Roll Trailer
    One 17 foot boat is the maximum length for the Yakima Rack and Roll trailer # Y08107. I would try it out without an extension to see if there is going to be any issues. You will probably want to use a 17 foot long stand-in for the boat just in case when you test it out. If you do need the extension it is # Y08109.

  • How to Transport a Canoe/Kayak Longer than 16 Feet with Yakima Rack and Roll Trailer

  • Choosing Malone MegaSport or Yakima Rack and Roll Trailer for Hobie Tandem Island
    You will need the Malone MegaSport Kayak Trailer # MPG535 for your Hobie Tandem Island. The Yakima # Y08107 has the capability of handling the weight of the boat, and can be extended to handle the length with the # Y08109. What it doesn't have is the required crossbar spread. The Hobie cradles require 67" spacing on center for installation. The Rack and Roll only has a 48" maximum crossbar spread so you won't be able to mount the cradles. The Malone MegaSport has a crossbar spread of...

  • Will 2 Kayaks Fits on the Yakima Rack and Roll Trailer
    The Yakima Rack and Roll trailer # Y08106 can hold 2 kayaks. If you are placing them directly on the bars as long as combined they are not more than 66 inches wide then they will fit directly on the bars. But what I recommend is to use the Thule Stacker, # TH830, on the trailer to hold the 2 Kayaks on their sides. This will ensure you have enough space for both kayaks. I have included a link to the installation details for the Stacker for you. I have also included a link to a video review...

  • Availability of Hitch Extender for Smaller Roof Rack Style Trailer
    You could probably make one with a fold away hinge but CE Smith does not offer a hitch extender for the CE Smith Multi Sport Boat and Kayak Trailer w/ Bunks # CE48810. Yakima makes tongue extenders for their Rack and Roll trailer # Y08106 with the # Y08109 which adds 3 feet to the tongue of the trailer.

  • Parts Needed to Mount Kayaks on the Yakima Rack and Roll Trailer # Y08107
    On the Yakima Rack and Roll trailer, # Y08107, you will want to use a compatible kayak carrier unless you do not mind the kayaks sitting directly on the bars. I recommend a couple sets of foam blocks, # RL100K10, because they are cost effective and they come with bow and stern tie downs to secure the kayaks to the trailer. If your kayaks are longer than 17 feet, you will want to add the tongue extension, # Y08109, so the kayaks do not make contact with the tow vehicle. I have included...

  • Can Thule Square Load Bars be Used on Yakima Rack and Roll Trailer, Part # Y08107
    My contact at Yakima confirms that the Rack and Roll Trailer, part # Y08107, is compatible with Class I, II and III hitches and since late 2010 comes standard with a 2-inch coupler. Originally the trailer was supplied with a 1-7/8 coupler and a running production change was made to move to the 2-inch. Yakima will supply at no charge a bolt-on 2-inch coupler, part # Y08123, to customers that receive a 1-7/8 unit and need the larger size. However, recent production should have a 2-inch coupler.

  • Tie Down Strap Recommendation for Securing 2 Kayaks on Yakima Rack and Roll Trailer
    If you use the Tongue Extension Kit # Y08109 along with your Rack and Roll Trailer # Y08107 then you will be able to transport your two 18-foot kayaks provided their combined weight does not exceed the trailer's limit of 250-lbs. If you need to add weight capacity to the trailer, use Yakima's heavy-duty shock kit # Y08110 which increases total load carrying to 350-lbs. The tongue extension does not include cargo tie-down points but a ratcheting strap like # EM34423 will help secure the...
