When I ordered the bike rack it was indicated online it would arrive in 4 days. 4 days later I checked to see the status and found it had been delayed by two weeks since it was not in stock. I called and expressed my disappointment in etrailer showing it in stock when it was not. They apologized and indicated an mistake in their inventory management and said they would try to expedite it if possible. I was VERY IMPRESSED that 4 days later they shipped it and I did not have to wait an additional two weeks. I was impressed their admission of error, their apology and their attention to my concern and their response to try to help if possible. The bike rack was easy to install, had excellent instructions and seems very solid and well built. I have only tested it around the block but it seems sturdy, east to mount bikes, adjustable to suit the bikes and I look forward to taking on a excursion later this week. 898410

I like the rack as loading my bikes is so much easier and they don't rub against each other or the back of my car. The only downside is the pin that goes through the receiver, it does not go all the way through the receiver which makes me a little uneasy as I'm afraid the rack could slide out of the receiver. The rack uses a different locking mechanism that works well but I'd like something a little more solid. I plan to install a small safety chain. 795239

This is the first rack that I've owned that delivers on all fronts. Bought it to take our bikes on a 1,300 mile ride down to Florida and the stability of the bikes on the rack was terrific! The system really locks the bikes to the rack - no movement at all. Add to that the built in locking cables along with the "tilt down" feature to get into your vehicle and you have one great product. etrailer.com's price was very competitive and it shipped without any damage to the product. Highly recommend this rack! 584116

Ordered Yakima Dr. Tray bike rack, at unbeatable price from etrailer. Arrived within 5 days of placing the order! Second item I have ordered in past month. I have decisive taste for good customer service, and that is exactly why I went back! You NEED to let etrailer have your business! 514685

Review from a similar Dr.Tray in RV and Camper Bike Racks


I use this hitch on my 2018 Prius Prime. I’m very satisfied with the quality and workmanship that Yakima offers. It is strong and solid. The welds are precise and the blend of metals is perfect to keep the weight low. I paid $xx.xx for this rack and it’s well worth it. If you like quality at a price, buy this. It turns heads 821148

Review from a similar Dr.Tray in RV and Camper Bike Racks


Defective materials. Hitch bent in first mile. First I want to say that etrailer has been great! Yakima, however, was very disappointing. I have had other Yakima racks and they were fine. I spent a long time researching racks for 3 bikes and chose the Dr Tray rack. Installed rack per instructions and did a test with 3 bikes. I loaded the heaviest bike closest to car (37 lbs), middle bike next (35 lbs), and lightest bike on outside (30 lbs). All bikes were under the recommended max weight of 40 lbs each tray and 120 lbs total. I then did a test drive to end of the street about 1 mile. This includes going VERY slowly over 3 speed bumps. (Slower than in the video by etrailer!) I noticed the bikes were hanging significantly lower. I got out and checked the rack and noted that the rack had bent at the heavy metal part that goes into the hitch receiver on my car. (See attached pictures). It also bent the tightening mechanism on the hitch and I had difficulty getting the rack off the car. I have returned the rack to etrailer and contacted Yakima. This should definitely NOT have happened with such minimal stress. This is a SAFETY ISSUE for Yakima that needs to be fixed. I would not want put my expensive bikes on this rack at all! Very surprised that the heaviest metal part of the rack actually bent. BTW, I subsequently ordered the RockyMounts Monorail 3. It is WAY more solid and a great rack. It was also $300 less!! 804241

Arrived earlier than expected. Easy to assemble using pictures and directions. First time E trailer user. Will use E trailer again if need arises!! Product much lighter than former hitch mount bike rack. Easier to put in place on car and remove, stores easier with less space, easier placement on and removal of bikes. Looking forward to many years of use as seems very well made with lighter aluminum materials. 529050

Review from a similar Dr.Tray in RV and Camper Bike Racks


The bike rack is super easy to install and hold bikes on it extremely well while you're driving. It's also super easy to load and unload your bike. The built in cables and locks were also easy to use..... So why 1 star? Well, we used it one time, one year ago. locked our bikes to the hitch and within a few the cables locking the bikes on had been cut and the bikes stolen. We lost a $2.500 bike and a $500 bike and the rack is useless without bikes and /or the ability to lock them to the rack. We don't live an a high crime area but we are in a city. Buy this only if you live in a low crime area in suburbia. 518968


Comments
Unfortunately, the best a lock can do is to keep honest people honest. If a thief is bound and determined to steal your items, theyll do it regardless of the steps taken to prevent it. The locks included with the rack are intended to provide deterrence, the average thief will move on to something thats easier to steal.

Review from a similar Dr.Tray in RV and Camper Bike Racks


Great value and this has been excellent so far. I ran into a problem that I've seen a few other people who have purchased this have issues with: the key included does not work in the hitch tightening knob. A quick call to Yakima customer support and I had a new cylinder and cylinder removal tool in my mailbox a couple days later. If I hadn't known about that problem going into it, I probably would have been a bit more frustrated. Mounting bikes on this is very easy, using the lock is relatively easy although the rubber guide blocks will stick in their channel if you're not pulling/pushing on them at the right angle (relatively shallow). It's also much easier to tilt this down and back up when loaded (at least with 1 bike on it) when compared to the hanging-style rack I used before. The tailgate on my "pickup" (2006 Avalanche) easily clears the bike when the platform is in the lowered position. 410198


Comments
Ive been happily using this rack for the last year and its been holding up well. I did notice the ratcheting arms got a bit difficult to release - a good cleaning and they feel better. A friend of mine also picked up the Thule T2 Pro XT, which Ive used a couple times. The Yakima is just as functional, but fit and finish and ease-of-use is better on the Thule. That said, the Yakima is MUCH lighter, so if you take it on and off your vehicle a lot thats a worthwhile consideration. Is it worth the cash to go up to the T2 Pro? I dont know. Id have a hard time justifying it, unless I used the rack a lot and wasnt taking it on and off the vehicle much. In my case, I use the rack once or twice a week at most and typically leave it on my SUV, so Im somewhere in the middle. Happily sticking with my Yakima.

    The Yakima Dr.Tray 2 Bike Platform Rack - 2" Hitches - Tilting - Aluminum # Y02473 is a great bike rack with some excellent features. For this rack, you don't want to use the factory adapter sleeve, but rather you would use the Brophy Hitch Reducer and Extender - 2-1/2" to 2" Trailer Hitch - 7" Long # HR26. The adapter extension would be necessary because the factory sleeve would not allow the pin and the anti-rattle and lock mechanism of the bike rack to work properly. This is an...

  • Platform Bike Rack Recommendation for the Back of a 5th Wheel Trailer
    Yakima does have some bike racks rated for use at the back of an RV or trailer but the Dr. Tray, # Y02473, is not one of them. What I recommend is the Swagman Escapee # S64693. It is similar to the Dr. Tray in that it holds 2 bikes at the wheels but at a lower price. I have linked a video review of this bike rack for you (I'm in this video; the chubby guy!). The 2 Yakima RV/trailer approved racks both hold 4 bikes and are hanging style racks, # Y02476 and # Y02477. But they do not...

  • Needing A Platform Bike Rack That Will Allow The Tailgate of a Nissan Frontier to be Lowered
    Either the Kuat Sherpa 2.0 Bike Rack, # SH22G, or the Yakima Dr.Tray 2 Bike Rack, # Y02473, will work with your 2015 Nissan Frontier and allow you to lower the tailgate with no bikes mounted. Both of the racks' ratcheting hook arms will fold down against the bike rack. So, in the tilt position you will have plenty of clearance to open the tailgate of your Nissan. Other than that similarity, I would recommend the Dr.Tray bike rack over the Sherpa rack. The Dr.Tray will be able to carry...

  • 2 Bike Platform Bike Rack Recommendation Plus What Happened to Yakima TwoTimer
    Yakima likes to upgrade and change models quite a bit. The Yakima TwoTimer is not something we are carrying currently.

  • Hitch Pin Hole to Nearest Part of Yakima Dr. Tray When Folded Up or Folded Down
    We have the Yakima Dr. Tray # Y02473 done in photo right now getting the etrailer photo treatment so I was able to take some preliminary measurements. One of the key features of this rack is that the rails the bikes sit on can be moved front to back. So I measured from the center of the pin to the closest wheel hoop with it in the position closest to the vehicle and it was 17 inches. With it slid back all the way it measured 24-1/2 inches.

  • How Far From Vehicle are Dr. Tray and Kuat NV 2.0 When Folded Down
    How far a rack sits back from the vehicle depends partially on the vehicle itself. So I can't tell you that exact measurement. However, what I can tell you how far out the rack is from the hitch pin hole, and you can then measure from the hitch pin hole to the outermost point on your vehicle and you'll know how far the rack is from the rear. When comparing the Yakima Dr. Tray, part # Y02473, and the Kuat NV 2.0, part # NV22G, the Kuat is definitely closer to the vehicle. The Kuat...

  • Best Bike Rack for a 2017 Subaru Forester
    Making sure that you're on the right class of hitch is always the easiest way to ensure a fit. If the hitch had been damaged at any point (whether from a previous owner or just bad luck) that can cause the hitch to suddenly feel a little "large" especially if it was a Class 1 hitch that was installed. Either way for your new 2017 Forrester, we'll focus on limiting the amount of rattle, the "looseness" that you were feeling from your CR-V's hitch. There will always be some rattle, as...

The back of the EcoHitch is actually totally open so there'd be no way there'd be an issue.

    For a bike rack to clear the spare tire on your 2004 Toyota RAV4 the rack will have to stick out from the hitch by more than 10 inches because that is what it will take to reach beyond the spare. Looking at the Yakima Dr. Tray # Y02473 the first bike position will clear the spare. This rack features adjustable bike trays that can slide forward and back so there is even more adjustability. The Thule T2 Pro # TH9034XT doesn't have as much adjustability but the first bike position will...

    Both the Curt # C13135 and the Draw-Tite # 76084 trailer hitches are excellent options to use for carrying a bike rack with your 2017 Subaru Crosstrek. Personally I like the Draw-Tite a little better because a safety strap is not required, but some people don't mind using the strap # 18050 so it really comes down to preference. Both hitches will allow you to use the Dr. Tray, part # Y02473 for 2 bike or part # Y02473-02475 for 3 bike, to carry your bikes around. I have attached...

  • Weight Difference Between 1-1/4-Inch and 2-Inch Versions of Yakima Dr. Tray Bike Carriers
    You are correct that the 1-1/4-inch version of the Yakima Dr.Tray 2 Bike Platform Rack, part # Y02474, is heavier than the 2-inch version # Y02473. This is a good observation on your part. The reason why is that the smaller 1-1/4-inch shank version uses a solid-steel shank while the 2-inch version's steel shank is hollow. This additional material accounts for the higher weight of the 1-1/4-inch model. All bike racks with a 1-1/4-inch shank will use solid construction since a hollow...

  • Platform Bike Rack that Can be Used In Hitch of Flat Towed Vehicle
    This is a really great question that I had at one point as well. So when I asked the bike rack manufacturers why some racks can't be used in a flat towed vehicle and they told me that when a vehicle is being flat towed it has a very slight back and forth sway as the steering seeks to center itself. This sway causes a bit of stress on bike racks so you'd need a bike rack that is reinforced for that like the Yakima Dr. Tray 2 bike rack part # Y02473 which is similar to the Saris you mentioned.

    The EcoHitch part # 306-X7601 that you referenced is an excellent choice for carrying a bike rack like the Yakima Dr. Tray part # Y02473. When we installed this hitch on a 2019 Subaru Outback Wagon like yours we found there was plenty of clearance for a bike rack like the Dr. Tray to fit. It has a distance of 3 inches from the hitch pin hole out to the furthest point out on the rear bumper which the Dr. Tray is easily compatible with and would fit while allowing the rack to fold up even.

The sleeve slides into the hitch and drops its opening size down to 1-1/4-inches to match this rack. The other versions of the Dr. Tray are made for 2-inch hitches, 2-bike version # Y02473 and 3-bike version # Y02473-02475, and these cannot directly fit into smaller 1-1/4-inch hitch receivers.
