Modular Gear-Carrying System

Yakima EXO Modular System

This modular enclosed cargo carrier secures your gear using your vehilce's hitch receiver. It also swings away, while fully loaded, for rear cargo area access. But the EXO system is more than just a swing-away cargo carrier, it's the ultimate gear-carrying rig! You can easily swap the enclosed cargo carrier for a bike rack or ski carrier (sold separately) without removing the base unit from your vehicle. You can also add a second level to pair the cargo carrier with a bike rack, a ski rack, or a second cargo carrier (all sold separately). Lastly, because you can carry so much gear 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 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 wide opening

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.

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 carrier 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 SwingBase Lever Safety Latch

To close the base, 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.

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.

Yakima SwingBase Lever Safety Latch

Dual arms on the base have tracks with cleats and SpeedKnobs that secure EXO accessories. To swap the 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 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 and Gear

Yakima Built-in Locks

This EXO system includes 5 SKS locks to secure the system, the carrier, and your gear. A lock secures the base to your vehicle's hitch receiver and locks in the arms secure the cargo carrier. Finally, the cargo carrier has a lock to secure your gear. Because the cargo carrier only uses 1 lock, this EXO configuration will come with an extra lock core.

EXO System Accessories

Because the EXO System is modular you can swap out the cargo carrier for a bike rack, ski rack, or accessory. You can also add a second tier and another accessory for whatever adventure you have planned. The various configurations are outlined below.

Yakima EXO SYstem bike rack

The DoubleUp 2-bike rack (Y24VR - sold separately) 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.

Yakima SnowBank

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.

Yakima Gear Warrior

If you want to carry coolers, luggage, and other larger, bulky gear, you can add the GearWarrior cargo carrier (Y37VR - sold separately). It has a weight capacity of 250 lbs. A wheel kit (Y97VR - sold separately) converts the GearWarrior into a wagon, so you can wheel your gear to the campsite.

Yakima TopShelfYakima TopShelf Rotated

To transform the system into a 2-tier carrier you will need the TopShelf (Y94VR - sold separately). It attaches to the base unit and holds 1 accessory. With the base rack swung away, you can swing the TopShelf back 180 degrees, with your accessories and gear still attached. This will provide unfettered access to your gear on the lower level.

Yakima Bike Rack and Cargo CarrierYakima Bike Rack and Cargo Carrier

For your biking adventure you can pair the enclosed cargo carrier with a bike rack. You can also swap the enclosed cargo carrier with a cargo carrier. On a 2-tier system the bike rack will need to be installed on the top tier to have room to mount your bikes. Using the bike rack on the top level reduces its weight capacity to 40 lbs per bike.

Yakima Ski Rack and Cargo CarrierSki Rack and Cargo Carrier

For your skiing adventure you can pair a ski carrier with an enclosed cargo carrier or a cargo carrier to transport all your gear to the slopes.

Yakima Enclosed Cargo Carrier and Cargo CarrierYakima Cargo CarrierYakima Cargo Carrier

If you just want to carry gear, you can add a second cargo carrier. You can outfit the system with an enclosed cargo carrier and a cargo carrier, 2 enclosed cargo carriers, or 2 cargo carriers.

Note: The cargo carrier has a weight capacity of 250 lbs when it's installed on the single-tier system. If you install it on a 2-tier system, it can carry 110 lbs on the bottom tier or 80 lbs on the top tier. Similarly, the enclosed cargo carrier's weight capacity changes based on where it's installed. When utilized on the bottom tier, either alone or in a two-tier system, its weight capacity is 100 lbs. Installed on the top tier, it's weight capacity is 80 lbs.

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 accessory and replace it with the table once you get to the campsite.

Yakima EXO Swing Away Enclosed Cargo Carrier - 2" Hitches - 10 cu ft - 100 lbs - Y62VR

Average Customer Rating:  4.6 out of 5 stars   (282 Customer Reviews)

Modular enclosed cargo carrier swings away with gear loaded for cargo area access. Swap the cargo carrier for a bike rack or ski carrier without removing the base from your vehicle, or add a 2nd tier to carry 2 accessories (all sold separately).


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.



Still working great. Huge downpour recently and everything inside stayed dry!


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.


I think this is a great product except for the locking pin in the full swing out position doesn’t allow the right rear door to open fully. (Check photo included). If Yakima made a 1/2” shorter pin then it would allow the door to open correctly.


The unit is mounted on our class b RV and has performed flawlessly in the year that we’ve owned it. The swing away feature allows us to open the back doors. Next purchase will be the bike rack. 4 instead of 5 stars only because of no response by the Yakima support team to a question asked just after we purchased it. E-trailer was great to work with


Fairly easy to assemble, very strong/durable, a bit heavy. I added DOT reflective tape for improved visibility to other drivers. I would not suggest leaving this on your vehicle as other drivers are not expecting it in a parking lot, which could lead to an accident.


Only complaint is it's on the heavy side! But that's what you get when it's built solidly and to last. Storage box feels slightly thin, but after a few light tests, it should work nicely.


The items ordered arrived earlier than expected. This was great since we needed to get organized for our trip. All the components were neatly packaged and it was fairly easy to install with clear instructions. The product is sturdy and
everything worked exactly as described.


We have a Class B RV and needed more storage on longer trips and this is ideal. We did get the hitch reinforced before adding the box and are very happy with the setup.


Yakima and etrailer are quality products and services. Can always depend on either to provide the highest quick response.


Great solution for extra storage on a Jayco Terrain or Winnebago Revel if you do not want to obscure your solar panels with a roof top box and don’t want to permanently mount extra boxes on your rear door.


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.


Before getting it I wasn't prepared to be overwhelmed by the quality, but to my surprise I was. It's already installed and looks great. I'm now trying to figure out how to also find a way to mount a spare tire using the same hitch
mount above it since my B motorhome doesn't come with one. All in all, I'm very happy.


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.


It works great. We have used it to haul around our golf clubs, leaving more space in the car. 2 bags fits perfectly.


Fantastic system. I added the upper deck and a second one. Best part is we can load them the night before in the hotel or house and simply cart them down on a luggage dolly and drop them on and go in the morning.


The person that helped us was awesome. Within days we received our merchandise.


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!


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.


I spend over $[XX].
Very disappointed
your company...
I ordered new..I received yakima exo swing base and cargo carrier, but pice of part broken. How I can do?


Excellent service and fast shipping. I highly recommend buying from


The package arrived with significant box damage. It was only barely taped together to start with. I will install the item later this week and at that time ascertain whether the item itself was damaged. I'd ask that the company check its quality control for shipping.


Great experience overall- fast packing and shipping, great updates and communication- awesome products

  • 2008 Jeep Commander Rear Door Clearance for a Hitch Mounted Cargo Carrier
    Using a hitch extender usually isn't a good option. Using an extender will lower the tongue weight (weight bearing) capacity of your hitch by 50 percent. You don't mention which sort of cargo carrier you were interested in, we do offer an enclosed cargo carrier that would swing away from the vehicle.

  • Will the Yakima EXO Swing Away Enclosed Cargo Carrier Work with Rear Spare Tire
    In regards to the Yakima EXO Swing Away Enclosed Cargo Carrier part # Y62VR, the distance from the center of the hitch pin hole to the back of the carrier is 4-1/4". Therefore, your spare tire cannot stick out more than 4-1/4" from the hitch pin hole on the trailer hitch. This is unlikely the case so it's best to remove the spare tire for use with this system as you cannot use a hitch extender.
