Modular Gear-Carrying System

Yakima EXO Modular System

This modular system is perfect for a long weekend of camping and hiking. It includes 2 cargo carriers that hold coolers, luggage, and firewood and other large, bulky items. 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 one of the cargo carriers 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.


Cargo carriers

Yakima EXO SYstem cargo carrier

GearWarrior cargo carriers hold coolers, luggage, firewood, and other large, bulky gear. They're easy to detach the from the base unit so you can carry your gear to the campsite a single trip or two. You can also attach a wheel kit to each carrier (Y97VR - sold separately) to convert them into wagons.


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 or your gear 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 rack or carrier, and remove it. Next, put the new accessory in the tracks, rotate the SpeedKnobs so the cleats secure it, then close each latch.


Security for EXO System and Accessories

Yakima Built-in Locks

This EXO system includes 10 SKS locks to secure the system and carriers. 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 GearWarrior cargo carriers. Because the GearWarrior doesn't utilize locks, this EXO configuration will come with 4 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 cargo carrier on the top level and install the table.


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 cargo carrier on the top level 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 cargo carrier on the top level and install this carrier in its place.


Yakima GearLocker

The GearLocker enclosed cargo carrier (Y44VR - sold separately) has 10 cu ft of storage space for carrying poles, clothes, and other gear. It keeps your gear secure, dry, and away from prying eyes. The GearLocker can be installed on either the top or bottom tier and can be paired with the GearWarrior cargo carrier to maximize cargo space.

Video Transcript for Yakima EXO System with 2 Cargo Carriers Review

Hi everyone, it's Evangeline, here at etrailer. And today we are looking at the Yakima EXO System with two cargo carriers called the GearWarriors, here at etrailer. This is a great way to start if you are very concerned about cargo space. We have here what are basically roof baskets for your hitch, and you get not one, but two of these cargo carriers, in order to maximize your space. We have this loaded up with all of our gear, pretty much anything you need to go camping or hiking. You can also take it for your cargo for cycling or skiing, if you wanna use it with other accessories.

But let's talk about weight capacities. Here at the bottom I have it on the SwingBase. Now, if we have it on just the SwingBase and only one GearWarrior, you have a weight capacity of 250 pounds. Right here, with the top shelf mounted, this has a weight capacity of 110 pounds. And our GearWarrior on the top shelf has a weight capacity of 80 pounds.

One thing to keep in mind is to please double check that your hitch does have the tongue weight capacity to handle this system. The SwingBase and the top shelf together are 101 pounds, plus add on the weight of the GearWarriors which is about 23 pounds each, plus your gear, you can easily be handling over 300 pounds of weight. So again, check your tongue weight capacity. When you are loading this up with cargo, you'll wanna put your larger items on top and your smaller items on the bottom. Now let's talk about clearances.

Your clearance from the top of the GearWarrior to where the SwingBase is, sits at about 12 inches. Now from the GearWarrior to where the other GearWarrior is, it sits at around 16 inches. Now that we've taken a look at how they work together, let's take off the top shelf to take a closer look at the GearWarrior. If you're interested in the EXO System and you know about how you can build up and beyond with it, but you just wanna start with a base and something to give you extra cargo space, this is a great way to start. This is basically a roof basket on your hitch with the opportunity to build up.

The dimensions of the GearWarrior itself is 60 inches long, 23 inches wide and six and a half inches tall. Now that we put everything back on, let's take a look at the biggest part of the Yakima EXO System, which is the SwingBase which does exactly what its name says, it swings away. Loosen this knob in the back completely until it releases from the SwingBase right there. Then you pull this other knob and swing it 90 degrees out. This knob will latch on in the corners to completely secure your SwingBase. With both GearWarriors installed, you're gonna have a lotta weight on your SwingBase and your top shelf. So I highly recommend installing this jack right here, that will give it a little bit extra support as you have it swung out. When it's swung out like this, you may have noticed how there isn't really that much room to unload your cargo in this position, and there is a solution for that. You have here a knob, which you first need to remove. So loosen that knob right there. And then you have this hitch pin and lock. And once both of those are removed, you can then rotate the top shelf a 180 degrees, and that way you have full access to your cargo. One person could be unloading your gear on this side, while your friend is unloading a gear on the other side. My final thoughts about this whole kit is I really like how much gear I can carry around with me. With them both loaded up together, I have 110 plus 80 pounds of cargo that I can carry, and that's a lot. And it really allows you to maximize your hitch and space. Of course, the best thing about the EXO System is the ability to mix and match with other accessories. So you can have a GearWarrior on one side and maybe a bike rack or a ski carrier or the GearLocker on the other side. It's really up to you to how you want your adventure to go. But if this carries your gear nice, quickly and easily, yes it does. And that was a look here at our Yakima EXO System with two GearWarrior cargo carriers, here at etrailer..

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 Cargo Carrier


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 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

Review from a similar EXO in Hitch Cargo Carrier


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.

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 Cargo Carrier


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 Cargo Carrier


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 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.

Review from a similar EXO in Hitch Cargo Carrier


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.
