Review from a similar EXO in Hitch Adapters


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 Hitch Adapters


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 Hitch Adapters


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

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 Hitch Adapters


We are very happy with our new Yakima Exo System! It is easy to install and move between vehicles and the cargo container holds a ton of stuff we don’t want to store in our RV cargo bays. We are also very pleased with the customer service at eTrailer. Paula helped us out when the website said it was not available until after our date to go full-time RVing. She got us three of the 4 items so we could get started with install. And she keeps in touch with us on when items have shipped and expected arrival date. Thanks Paula!

Review from a similar EXO in Hitch Adapters


Truly one of the best purchases I have recently made. etrailer provided updates on my order the entire way, to include picture icons of the individuals who received my order, pack my order, and shipped my order, and then links I could use to see the status of my order all the way to my door. Despite the 2 boxes, one bulky and the other heavy, both boxes arrived at the same time undamaged. The carrier came with two wrenches and extra lock tumblers to swap out the lock on the box to match the hitch and carrier locks to all be keyed the same. I was not expecting the added attention to detail and professional touch etrailer and Yakima provided. The swing away carrier is well built and was easy to install on my 2022 Subaru Outback with no issues. The rear hatch opens with the carrier and box closed, but getting out large dog in and out of the back of the car seemed dangerous without swinging the carrier open. The taillights and license plate are visible. I recommend adding reflective tape to the box for added visibility because the rear reflectors on the car are not visible. Accessing the contents in the box on the rear of the car is so much easier than trying to access stuff using the roof storage box.

Review from a similar EXO in Hitch Adapters


Got this to use in conjunction with our truck slide in camper. The additional cargo storage space the EXO system offers with the upper deck is enough for our generator, coolers, pop up canopy, bbq grill, chairs and firewood. Being able to swing the entire rack off to the side for access to the camper door is the best part is the system, by doing this also creates a great work station right next to the camper door that I can cook from.

Review from a similar EXO in Hitch Adapters


This is an awesome set for adding extra space to your vehicle. The product shipped super fast and was in great condition. There was some issues with the boxes from UPS being torn up but the product inside was perfect. The team at etrailer has been responsive and helpful the entire way. Definitely will purchase products from this team again.

Specifically for 2022 and newer Wagoneer owners there is a trick to opening your back hatch with this installed. In the pics below you have to fully swing loosen the top pivot screw about 1/8” to allow the clearance for the hatch to swing by. If all is tight and you only swing the arm to the 90 deg position it will hit when you open the hatch.

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.

  • How to Tell if Yakima EXO SwingBase Swing Away Hitch Extender Will Clear Rear Van Doors
    The Yakima EXO SwingBase Swing Away Hitch Extender # Y34VR measures 33" from the center of the receiver out to the arm. While this should be enough room for you to open up the rear doors on your 2005 Ford Econoline, we haven't test fit this application so you can use this measurement to do so. I'm attaching a review video where we go over some of these measurements as well as a sheet showing some other dimensions of this system for you to check out.

  • Compatibility of Yakima EXO System Swing Base With 2019 Ford Transit T350
    As long as your Ford Transit has a 2 inch hitch and its hitch pin hole isn't recessed under the vehicle by more than 4-1/4 inches, the Yakima EXO Swing Base, part # Y34VR would work great on your Transit T350. To determine how far under the vehicle the hitch pin hole is recessed, place a straight edge like a yardstick or 2x4 vertically up against the rear bumper. Measure the distance from the center of the hitch pin hole to the straight edge. If this distance is less than 4-1/4 inches,...

  • Will the Yakima Exo Swing Base Clear An Oversized Jeep Wrangler Spare Tire
    The Yakima EXO SwingBase Swing Away Hitch Extender - 2 inch Hitches # Y34VR from its farthest stretched out point is 35-1/2 inches long. With your tire being 35 inches it should just clear it. The Yakima Exo has a simple bolt-on attachment to your vehicle's hitch receiver. It has a durable steel construction that has a black powder coat which is rust resistant. I attached a review video link below.

  • What are the Dimensions of the Yakima EXO Swing Away Rack
    I got some information from Yakima and included a diagram of the EXO SwingBase # Y34VR, which is the base part for the EXO SwingBase 2 Tier # Y82VR. Though the measurement from the pin hole to the closest edge of the carrier is not included in said diagrams, the person I spoke with at Yakima said it is 5 1/2 inches.

    From the pin hole to the nearest portion of the Yakima Exo SwingBase # Y34VR measures 5-1/2 inches. Now this is just the swingbase of the # Y82VR which has the more important dimension of 16 inches from it's pin hole to the back of the vertical bracket which would easily fit on a Wrangler and clear the spare.

  • Availability of Swingaway Kit for Yakima EXO and Does Light Kit Fit
    For the Yakima EXO kits they offer a swing base with the part # Y34VR that will allow you to swing the rack away from the rear of the vehicle to access the rear door. Since the light kit part # Y74VR attaches to the rear of the rack it would swing away with rack and would work perfectly fine.

    The Yakima EXO SwingBase Swing Away Hitch Extender # Y34VR is a unique system and currently only comes with the ability to swing out to that 90 degree angle.
