I just bought a Yakima cargo box with the exo system. I also got the top section add on with the optional table and or bike rack. This product is very solid and it is everything I thought it would be. My wife and I , love it. Thanks




by:

Thank you! This system is frankly awesome. It is very well made and let's me transport bikes in the truck bed and have covered storage that we can unlock and just carry into the hotel and pre pack in the garage or hotel the days before the trip.




by:

We love the entire Exo system and etrailer.com made it easy to get it to Alaska and in an extremely timely manner. They will be my number 1 goto from now on!




by:

This system is great for when you need just a little more car than you have. These lockers work great, are 100% water proof and easy to remove to put on your other accessories.

I have not yet used this yet, but I’m sure it is going to work out fine. I would like to add the ordering process from etrailer, from start to finish was exceptional. I was constantly receiving updates not just for shipping but for predelivery and as well as post delivery. This is the first time I have ordered from etrailer And definitely will not be the last. Five stars for this company.

Great box. Lightweight and lots of room. etrailer was excellent to deal with. Our box was delivered to Canada in under a week for a reasonable price. Very happy!




by:

This rating is all about the customer service. I haven’t used the gearbox yet. The service and assistance was great every step of the way. The Yakima exo system is sold out everywhere. So, there was extra assistance needed to check inventory. They did and were very helpful. I will certainly order from etrailer again.

Shipped immediately! Arrived quickly! Could not ask for a better service!

Review from a similar EXO in Accessories and Parts


We use this for extra storage in our class B campervan. I'm able to store all the bulky items that don't fit inside the van like chairs, mats, and our grill. I like that it doesn't block the license plate or taillights and still allows access to the Thule bike rack. The SwingBase allows both doors to open for full access into the rear of the van.

Review from a similar EXO in Accessories and Parts


Thanks etrailer
The unit arrived as projected,,
4 components all well packaged.
The instructions were easily followed and accurate
The quality of the construction was good with clean welds and good coating

One issue was no keys for the pin locks could be located

The design of the attachment is very easy to attach and detachment.

You can see the various coolers utilized, couple reasons
1. Larger coolers can’t be accessed, the smaller size allows for open top
Access, additionally these can be locked with cable thru handle to
Reduce possible theft.

I did find the upper tightening knob to be not as secure, as I felt better,
In putting a thru bolt and lock but in lue of

All in all pleased , we’ll see how it holds up under highway use

Review from a similar EXO in Accessories and Parts


Very easy to install. Total installation time (not counting taking photos and opening boxes) was approximately 15 minutes. The only issue I encountered was the left handle on the lower rack had a broken piece inside the locking pin assembly. Other than that, everything was quick and smooth for a single person job. This will greatly assist my business by allowing more room for passenger comfort on long trips to and from airports with a large party. Looking forward to putting this to use.

Review from a similar EXO in Accessories and Parts


If you are stuck with a trailer hitch rack only option as I was with my ‘06 Ford Camper Van this is the king and the queen of all trailer hitch racks.
You have two tiers so essentially two racks on one hitch and paired with a “dual hitch receiver adapter” you can still pull your snowmobile and other lighter weight trailers. Don’t over load it check your weight ratings.
You can have a good portion of your recreational life all connected to one hitch.
It is engineered appropriately with ease of use.
The one thing that is mildly annoying is when the container is in the bottom tier I cannot fully open the top. You can access a folding chair or two with out repositioning the rack but larger items involve a two process repositioning to fully open container door. I wish there was a easier and still secure way to move and position the top tier to access the bottom tier when the container is mounted there. ( maybe a upward folding top tier???)
If you had a ski rack in the bottom and container on the top that would work but when summer hits and the bike rack goes on it must be in the top tier and this moving the container to the bottom tier.
Also (amateur tip) if you get the “dual hitch receiver adapter” and you get the extra strong one it ends up being an inch or so taller and thus making the back door inaccessible for the most part. Standard mounting position (aka straight to the vehicle) or lighter rated weight dual receivers will allow the rear doors to be opened when swing away mode is initiated.

Considering this is the most expensive rear hitch rack combo you can buy paired with the last little bit I wrote on rear door access issues, is the only reason I gave this a 4 star rating. This rack was thought out with an in depth cutting edge detail in mind they covered so many new grounds of possibilities of a rear hitch rack.

Everything fit with no problems. My brother suggested mounting the hitch first to the hanging brackets to bare the weight and then attach to the main frame. Then tighten all bolts to spec. Worked like a charm.

Review from a similar EXO in Accessories and Parts


The Yakima EXO Swing Away and Gear Locker cargo box are great additions to our Class B Van. The only criticism, and it is minor, is that because of the Landed Gear Spare tire mount, it is just a bit difficult to reach and tighten the large “wing nut” when the box is back in travel position. Otherwise, we love it.

Review from a similar EXO in Accessories and Parts


This is a superior product! It is very well-made and really great for extra storage. We have this on the back of our 2022 Ford Transit Campervan and while the right-side door does not fully open with cargo in the box we can get the door opened past the pivot point pin and use it to keep the door propped open. Highly recommend etrailer. They always have items in stock and are very knowledgeable and helpful. Highly recommend ordering this and if you do order it from etrailer. It arrived in two days as well so the shipping, which was free, was very fast.

Heavy duty! Wife and I are planning a road trip and the locking mechanisms that secure this thing in place means I can worry less and keep my mind focused on other aspects of the trip. The metal racks are a great size and feel real sturdy! The swinging arm works perfectly with the hatchback door, I’m excited to get on the road!

Great product! We use this system for supplemental storage on camping trips with our class C motorhome. Additionally, we have used it for travel baseball tournaments to keep dusty and dirty catchers equipment and bat bags out of the vehicle. Extremely sturdy and easy to use.

  • Swing Out Hitch Adapter That Will Allow For Rear Swing Gate On JL Wrangler To Open
    The Yakima BackSwing Swing Away Hitch Extender # Y02483 will allow you to open the rear hatch on your JLU Wrangler Sahara. This will work with cargo carriers or bike racks that use a 2" receiver. Do note that depending on your gear loaded you may not be able to fully open the rear door the 90 degrees but you will have plenty of room to access your golf bag cart. This extender will reduce your Jeep's tongue weight capacity by 50% with a maximum weight capacity of 250lbs. Another option...

    I have a solution for you. Reese does not have a swing/fold up cargo carrier, however we do have the Yakima EXO SwingBase with GearWarrior Cargo Carrier - 2" Hitches - 60" x 23" # Y72VR. This system can be highly modified and has many attachments to fit all your needs. The License Plate and Tail Light Relocation Kit for Yakima EXO System # Y74VR are the lights you asked about. If you want to add more you can use the TopShelf for Yakima EXO SwingBase # Y94VR. This is the base that will...

  • Trailer Hitch Recommendation for a 2021 Nissan Murano for a Bike Rack
    I recommend using the etrailer Trailer Hitch # e98907 for your 2021 Nissan Murano because it has a matte black finish that helps it blend in with the trim on your Murano and helps to hide any scratches that might occur from road debris hitting it. Then for a bike rack I recommend checking out the Yakima EXO Swing Away 2-Bike Rack # Y92VR for a few reasons. The first is that the swing-away feature means you can gain complete access to your rear hatch area without removing your bikes, the...

    While we have not used the Yakima EXO SwingBase # Y34VR on your 2022 Kia Carnival we have used it on a 2020 Honda Odyssey(see video below), so I see no reason you will not be able to use this on your Kia. The base is mounted on the upper portion of the hitch that slides into the receiver tube. And the arms angle up to help reduce the chances of it contacting the ground on steep driveways or curbs. Here is a list of the accessories you can add to the EXO SwingBase. TopShelf for Yakima...

  • Receiver Hitch and Yakima EXO Swing Away Bike Rack for a 2021 Mazda CX-5
    I would be happy to help you find a hitch receiver and a bike rack for your 2021 Mazda CX-5. I recommend the EcoHitch Hidden Trailer Hitch Receiver item # EH68VR. The EcoHitch Hidden trailer hitch is designed to be as inconspicuous as possible. The hitch's cross tube bolts onto your vehicle's frame behind your rear bumper. There is no drilling or welding required. Once the hitch is installed, only the 2" receiver will be visible beneath your bumper. I have attached a picture and an installation...

  • Can the Top Rack of the Stack Rack II # 310-VSR201 Have the Same Size as the Bottom Rack?
    While we do have a two-tiered basket system that offers more storage space, Viking Solutions does not not have an option to make the top basket of the Stack Rack II # 310-VSR201 the same dimensions as the larger bottom basket. The only other option we carry is the Yakima EXO Swing Away Storage System w/ 2 Cargo Carriers - 2" Hitches # Y84ZR.

  • Recommended Trailer Hitch Receiver, Wiring Harness and Bike Rack for a 2003 Toyota RAV4
    The Curt Trailer Hitch Receiver # C13524 will not affect your ability to open or close the rear door on your 2003 Toyota RAV4. The receiver tube sits below the rear door so you will be able to still access your rear cargo. The T-One Vehicle Wiring Harness # 118389 will give you the 4-way flat connection you need for the lights on your 4' X 8' utility trailer. I recommend routing the connection out through the floor of your RAV4 and mounting it to your receiver using the Mounting Brackets...
