Modular Gear-Carrying System

Yakima EXO Modular System

This modular system has plenty of storage for your camping trip. It includes an enclosed cargo carrier that keeps smaller gear dry and secure and a cargo carrier that holds coolers, luggage, firewood, and other large, bulky items. You can choose which carrier you want on the top or bottom and easily swap them to accommodate the gear you're carrying. The two-tier base system swings away, while fully loaded, for rear cargo area access, and the top tier can be removed if you only need to carry 1 accessory. Using the cargo carrier on the lower level, without utilizing the top tier, increases the weight capacity to 250 lbs.

Because the Yakima EXO system is modular it lets you transform your hitch into the ultimate gear-carrying rig. You can outfit the system with various accessories (sold separately) to carry all your biking, camping, and skiing gear. The system is compatible with a bike rack, ski rack, cargo carrier, and an enclosed cargo carrier, and you can easily swap them out to match any outdoor activity. You can also add base camp accessories, like a camping table. Lastly, because you can carry two accessories on the back of your vehicle, it frees up space on your roof to carry even more gear.

Enclosed Cargo Carrier

Yakima EXO SYstem bike rack

The GearLocker enclosed cargo carrier has 10 cu ft of storage space for carrying sports equipment, clothes, and other gear. It's easy to detach the carrier from the base unit, making it convenient for two people to tote all your gear to the campsite in a single trip.

Yakima EXO System bike rack

The wide-mouth opening makes it easy to load your gear and find individual items at the campsite. Integrated straps inside the carrier secure your gear so it doesn't slide around when you're on the road. Spring-based levers on each side hold the lid open, so you can use both hands while loading and unloading.

Cargo Carrier

Yakima EXO SYstem cargo carrier

The GearWarrior cargo carrier lets you carry coolers, luggage, firewood, and other large, bulky gear. You can also attach a wheel kit (Y97VR - sold separately) to convert the carrier into a wagon.

Swing-Away Design for Rear Cargo Area Access

Yakima EXO System with bike rack and cargo carrier

The hinged arm on the base lets you swing the unit away from your vehicle. This provides full access to your vehicle's rear cargo area and eliminates the need to remove the cargo carriers when you're unloading your vehicle or letting your dog hop in or out of the back.

Yakima SwingBase Lever Safety Latch Demonstration Swinging Open

To open the hinged arm, simply rotate the release knob counterclockwise until it's unscrewed from the arm, pull out on the spring pin, and swing the rack away from the rear of your vehicle. The arm will lock in place when it's fully extended, so your hands are free to open your hatch and remove cargo.

Yakima TopShelf swings 180 degrees

In addition to allowing access to your vehicle's cargo area, the EXO can also provide access to your gear stored on the lower level. Once the base unit is fully extended, you can swing the top tier back 180 degrees, with your gear and cargo carrier still attached. This will provide unfettered access to the cargo carrier on the lower level.

Yakima SwingBase Lever Safety Latch

To close the base unit, just pull the release lever at the hinge and swing the extended arm back into position. Once you hear the spring pin lock into place, rotate the knob clockwise until it's tight.

If you leave the base swung open for an extended period of time, you'll need to install the included jack stand to help stabilize the arm. Turn the rod on the jack to fine tune the height so the system stays level.

Easy Installation and Setup

Yakima SwingBase Lever Safety Latch

To install the EXO system, simply slide the shank on the base unit into your 2" hitch receiver, insert the threaded hitch pin, and tighten it down with the included 24-mm wrench. The threaded hitch pin also reduces noise and movement in your hitch. The second tier bolts to the base to provide the second level of storage.

Yakima SwingBase Lever Safety Latch

Dual arms on each tier have tracks with cleats and SpeedKnobs that secure EXO accessories. To swap the a cargo carrier for a different accessory, undo the latches on the sides of the arms, rotate the SpeedKnobs to allow the cleats inside the tracks to free the carrier, and remove it. Next, put the new accessory in the tracks, rotate the SpeedKnobs so the cleats secure it, then close each latch.

Complete Security for EXO System, Accessories, and Gear

Yakima Built-in Locks

This EXO system includes 10 SKS locks to secure the system, carriers, and your gear in the enclosed cargo carrier. The two tiers have locks that secure them to each other and to your vehicle's hitch receiver. Both tiers also have locks in the arms to secure the enclosed cargo carrier and the cargo carrier. Finally, the enclosed cargo carrier has a lock to secure your gear inside. Because the enclosed cargo carrier only uses 1 lock and the cargo carrier doesn't use any, this EXO configuration will come with 3 extra lock cores.

The SKS locks for the system come with the 2 base units - 5 with each. Because they are packaged separately, the locks for the top tier and bottom tier probably won't be keyed alike. However, they can be swapped out to match each other and even your other Yakima gear.

EXO System Accessories

Because the EXO System is modular you can add accessories for whatever adventure you have planned, or swap them out for other activities.

Yakima BackDeck

The BackDeck camping table (Y84VR - sold separately) is perfect for use at the campsite. It lets you prep meals, lay out your gear, and even mix drinks at the end of the day. Simply remove the top-tier cargo carrier and install the table. It stores conveniently inside the enclosed cargo carrier, during transport.

Yakima BackDeck

The SnowBank (Y57VR - sold separately) is perfect for your ski trip. It carries up to 5 pairs of skis or 4 snowboards. It has an expanding hinge that accommodates thick skis and large buttons that let you access your skis even if you're wearing gloves. Simply remove the top-tier cargo carrier and install this carrier in its place.

Yakima EXO SYstem bike rack

The DoubleUp 2-bike rack has ratcheting hooks that grab your bikes firmly by the front wheel - not the frame. It's perfect for carrying nearly any bike, including bikes with carbon frames, disc brakes, thru axles, or full suspensions. Simply remove the top-tier cargo carrier and install this carrier in its place.

Yakima EXO Swing Away Storage System w/ Enclosed Cargo Carrier and Cargo Carrier - 2" Hitches - Y44ZR

Average Customer Rating:  4.6 out of 5 stars   (261 Customer Reviews)

This EXO system has plenty of storage for road trips or camping trips. Enclosed cargo carrier keeps gear dry and secure. Cargo basket holds coolers, luggage, and other large, bulky items. System swings away to provide cargo area access.


This is the perfect setup for family road trips when you need a little extra dry storage. I mounted this on my Rivian R1S and saw no change in range, as opposed to a roof mount system. I only wish Yakima would incorporate a full-size spare mount for the EXO. Also had a favorable experience with etrailer customer service, as one of the locking pins arrived damaged. They were quick to get a replacement part to me at no cost. I couldn't be happier with the EXO or etrailer. I know that sounds corny, but it's true.


We bought this set of back of the car storage carriers a year ago so we wouldn't have to rent a U-Haul trailer for vacation. Just finished our second month long trip.
We love it. Sturdy, well engineered. Would recommend it to anyone.


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

I will have our Customer Service team reach out to you.


carries a lot, easy to swing out. Really like this when I need to haul. It does "waggle" back and forth alot, enough for friends to comment when following on the freeway, but didn't fall off, anyway


I really like the setup and flexibility of this system


Never received the swingbase

Oh no! We definitely want you to have the complete unit. I will have our Customer Service team reach out ASAP to you.


Overall it seems like a good product. I only issue I had involved the warrior cargo carrier. When putting the two pieces together the female screw ends fell out of the tubes. I had a hard time getting them realigned. Other than that, all parts were present and accounted for. Everything went together perfectly.


E trailer always delivers! Ordering was easy and package was delivered on time. I needed in time for a family trip, called in Roger and Joanne made sure the package went out on time. I will definitely prefer again when I need my next piece of gear.


Perfect item for that needed extra storage. Easy assembly and installation!


There is no part of this experience that hasn’t been professional. Ordering and delivery were excellent. Thanks to Ashley and the crew at etrailer.


Variations of pieces allow for multiple storage solutions.




We used this for a trip to KeyLargo Fl it was perfect. Only used the enclosed carrier. Kept items dry and freed up space in our vehicle. With the swing arm it allowed us the access to back of van to retrieve our daughters wheelchair. After looking at other vehicles on the road with roof mounts, this works perfect for me since I would not be able to mount or access a roof top carrier.







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.


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.


Product meets all expectations. etrailer quickly replaced a broken Knob Assembly which was damaged during shipping. Vehicle is an Airstream Interstate 24GT. The swing assembly does restrict the Sprinter's right barn door from opening completely, but not a significant issue. We did add our own rear turn signal lights and license plate holder since the factory rear lights restricted ground clearance.


We have owned our Yakima swing away cargo carrier for a year and it has been a wonderful addition to our Rubicon. It gives us all the room for our 2 large dogs while carrying our luggage to visit our family. It has been so helpful; it stays on the Rubicon all the time! The way the carrier swings out of the way was critical for the dogs to get access to the rear of the Rubicon. Can't live without our Yakima carrier!


Good design with minor flaws. After 12 months of using main frame and one level container I have found rusting pin in the swing hinge and box perforation,probably caused by a small rock picked by the rear tire. This year I purchased the frame for the upper tier and a 2nd container. The upper rotaing frame is loosely fitted and requires some gymnastics to fit in the stabilizing screw. It is especially difficult with the upper container loaded. The securing screw should have a butterfly handle and a pilot point, like the one in the lower level.


Installed on 2017 Transit 350HD.

order on etrailer and the experience was great; really fast shipping and great communication. I was surprised to see it picked and shipped so quick so late in the day, especially for how big this is. It comes in 4 boxes; one giant one and 3 moderately huge ones.

The Yakima EXO system is top notch, great construction. Excellent fit and finish, and pretty easy to assemble. Read the instructions and follow each step and you'll have no issues. I have a bad back and was able to assemble myself, the heaviest part is the swing away hitch - if you can lift about 40-50 pounds it is going to be easy to assemble without any help. I went slow and it only took me about 30-45 minutes.

Tips - the bike rack portion it's not super clear that the rails should not be tight when you put the upper bike rack on. Just set everything in place and it will make getting the bolts through easier.

Pros - it's as advertised. Super sturdy, no shaking/rocking, easy to use. The people who designed this system should be high fiving themselves, it's great.

Cons - none really other than one minor customer experience gripe - you're given enough lock centers to re-key multiple Yakima EXO accessories, I think 4 are included...but it does not come with a master key for removing the lock center. You'll need to buy this separately or do like I did and make your own. Considering they put the effort into including replacement lock centers and give you every tool you'd need, it's a weird oversight.

That being said once you replace the lock center on the cargo carrier you only need 1 key for all of the locks on the system which is awesome.

Ford Transit specific issue I ran into:

When the swing away is open there is a safety latch that holds it open so it will not fall closed on you. This gets in the way of the passenger door opening. But if you remove this (at your risk) you can open the passenger door fully and if you rotate the upper shelf you can even open the door entirely against the side of the van. Also it will 100% block your camera and license plate if it's door mounted.

Absolutely stoked on this system. The cargo box is awesome with internal tie downs and taking it apart to store it in the garage only takes a minute or two. I love how easy the cargo box indexes in place. Every aspect of it has been super satisfying to play with.


Unfortunately we can’t open rear of 2018 expedition with the top box in place. One of the knob locking pins is/was broken in shipping. I also wish all of the items were keyed the same. This whole setup is 5 keys. I’ll probably call a locksmith and have them all re-keyed if possible.


Couldn’t love this more, adds all of the extra space needed. Locks integrated throughout make very easy to secure. Love that the cargo boxes can be removed individually, packed and returned to brackets. Two improvements which we would improve, locks are all keyed differently and would be a bit easier for us if they were keyed alike. Also, has a significant wobble once affixed to the hitch. We were able to fix temporarily with shims, and will be ordering a hitch tightener for future use. Not sure if this is a universal issue or specific to our vehicle type.

  • Will The Yakima EXO Swing Away System Block The Rear Camera On My 2022 Toyota Sienna Platinum
    The rear camera on your 2022 Toyota Sienna Platinum is located above your license plate. It may be blocked by the Yakima EXO Swing Away Storage System w/ Enclosed Cargo Carrier and Cargo Carrier - 2" Hitches, part # Y44ZR. I would contact Toyota because they may offer a camera relocation kit for your vehicle.

  • How to Determine if Yakima EXO Swing Out Carrier Will Allow Rear Vehicle Door to Open
    On the Yakima EXO Swing Out Carrier part # Y44ZR that you referenced there is a distance of 9-1/2 inches from the bottom of the shank to the very top so to determine if the rear door of your 2000 Ford Excursion would open you'd need to measure from the bottom of your hitch opening to the bottom of your rear door edge. If that distance is greater than 9-1/2 inches this rack would allow it to open when the rack was swung out.

  • High-Low Adapter That Can Work With The Yakima EXO Swing Away Storage System
    Yes! We have a large variety of high-low adapters like the Blue Ox High-Low Adapter for Tow Bars # BX88132 which has 10" of rise/drop. Any of our high-low adapters will work great with the Yakima EXO Swing Away Storage System w/ Enclosed Carrier # Y44ZR. However, using an any adapter will cut your hitches capacity in half so that is also something to keep in mind. Finally, if you let me know what height you'd like the adapter to be, I'd be more than happy to see what we have for you.
