If you are looking for an easy way to haul your expensive gear, slap this premium Yakima sport trailer on your hitch and you're ready to Rack and Roll.

Rear view of Yakima Rack and Roll trailer with 78" crossbars

This high-performance, lightweight Rack and Roll trailer comes with a pair of adjustable, 78" Yakima crossbars for mounting boats, bikes and cargo boxes for covered storage - whatever you need. The round crossbars slide along tracks to adjust to your load, and they accept all Yakima roof-rack accessories - it's like having a tow-behind roof rack with all the capability and versatility of a standard Yakima rack. The difference here is that, with the trailer's conveniently low loading height, you don't have to lift your gear over your head to store it.

Rack and Roll adjustable shock absorbers

Rack and Roll holds up to 250 lbs and coddles your gear with fully independent, adjustable shock absorbers. The suspension has 4 inches of wheel travel for exceptional highway performance, cushioning your gear and keeping the trailer from going "airborne" over rough terrain.

Rack and Roll trailer stowed uprightRack and Roll rear rollers

The versatile trailer is easy to store when not in use, with a variety of options for keeping it tucked away in your garage. The tongue and wheels remove easily with stainless steel pins to make the trailer more compact. The trailer can be stored upright or hung on the garage wall by the crossbars. The rear section of the frame features two integrated rollers to make moving the trailer laterally effortless.

Standard 4-way light connector for Rack and Roll trailer

A standard, 4-way flat, black rubber connector is included for connecting your lights to the towing vehicle. The trailer connector has three male pins and one female pin. The vehicle's flat-4 connector should have one male pin (exposed ground) and three female connections (live circuits for stop, turn and running lights).

Rack and Roll trailer locking lever

The trailer frame includes a locking lever that secures your hitch tongue to the trailer frame.

Rack and Roll carrying handle

An integrated carrying handle is mounted near the coupler to make it easier to place the trailer on the hitch ball. The handle also turns your trailer into a handcart that is easy to maneuver while it's unhitched from your vehicle.



The trailer can carry one boat up to 17' long or two 16'-long boats. Add the Rack and Roll Tongue Extension Kit (Y08109) - sold separately - to increase the capacity to one 22'-long boat or two 21'-long boats.



You can also store the trailer without removing the tongue and wheels by adding the Rack and Roll Kickstand (Y08115) - sold separately.

The trailer is constructed from anodized aluminum and features custom-cast, polished aluminum alloy wheels.

The trailer works with Class I, II and III hitches with a 2" ball installed. The ball should be mounted 22" from the ground for optimum performance. To ensure the best fit, use a ball mount with the proper drop or rise to modify the height of your receiver.

Most states require that you register your Rack and Roll trailer. All paperwork necessary for registering your trailer is provided by Yakima. Take the documents to your Department of Motor Vehicles and you will be issued a license plate.

Overall I am pleased with how this trailer performed on a 7000 mile road trip to Alaska and back to Oregon. I had it loaded with 2 mtn bikes and an 18 cuft luggage box, total trailer weight on the scale at 400#s. I installed the heavy duty shocks. The trailer performed well, never leaving me stranded but here are the issues I encountered: 1) the trailing arm wheel mount can create an alugnment issue, my left tire wore much more quickly and unevenly. 2) road debris kicked up from my truck caused damage to the side reflectors, easy to replace and damaged one of the front frame tube end caps letting road grime in. 3). Shocks performed well but also sustained some chip damage from road debris causing rust. They are out in the open. 4) the lock on the trailer tongue snapped off from rough road conditions. Fortunately the redundant pin combined with a zip tie didn’t compromise safety. There is also rock chip damage to the fenders and aluminum, but to be expected on Alaska roads.

I love how this trailer folds flat and out of the way in the garage. I fixed most of the damage at minimal cost. Will be using the trailer next week on the Oregon coast.



by:

I could not be happier with this trailer. It carries kayaks, bikes, a basket, and occasionally some lumber that is too big to get in my Rav4. It even hauled an old couch to the dump. My only complaint was that I had to build a bigger gate to get it in and out of my yard. You guessed it, it hauled the lumber. This is a sexy trailer that has people asking me about it at every boat ramp. Best of all no more back and shoulder pain from having to lift the boats onto the top of my car. Amazing.



by:

This trailer has been great! I am a fly fisherman. I use this trailer to transport my one man pontoon boat for river float fishing. I use a yakima bike rack attachment to transport my bike shuttle. Very convenient.
The trailer is lightweight yet very sturdy. The assembly took some time but the directions were straight forward and the process allowed me to understand how well built the trailer is.

My trailer continues to perform well. I use it regularly beginning in the Spring. During the Winter I store it in my garage. It conveniently disassembles so that I still have room to park my car.I havent discovered any problems with its operation so far. Love it.



by:

Easy to assemble and very good design. I got the heavy duty shocks and often load 4 kayaks plus gear. Tows like a dream and you hardly know it's back there! Also got the spare tire kit (just in case!) and the safety pole to keep track of the trailer while backing up. Lights are bright, fit and finish is very good. I get a lot of comments and questions at the boat ramp. I have a tall garage ceiling and the trailer stores conveniently 'tongue up' which saves space - great job, Yakima!



by:

One of the best purchases I’ve ever made. The trailer is Light well-made and an excellent design. Highly recommend!



by:

I wanted a small multi-purpose trailer (suited for a canoe, bicycles, or camping storage) and it needed to be easily storable. This trailer from Yakima met all requirements nicely. The build quality is exceptional, as it should be for the price. No questionable design choices. All mechanical parts move smoothly where they should, and fit snugly where they should not. Electrical wiring snaps together neatly at various points, and for the most part is hidden within frame.

I like its storability best. It can be disassembled to various degrees depending on how out of the way you would like it to be. I keep it simple. I remove the tongue and roll the bulk of the trailer for storage inside my garage, under my wall mounted canoe. The roller blade wheels at the brake lights are a great feature for moving the trailer on end.

I mainly use it to transport a 15' 3" Old Town canoe that weighs about 90lbs. Too wide for my Subaru's roof racks, and none too easy getting it up there even if it could fit. This trailer solved that problem, and opened up additional transport arrangements. Because it has roof rack type cross bars, I can share rack equipment on the trailer or car's roof.
I rated 4 of 5 stars for three reasons: price, assembly, and mobility. The price was staggering. I think mostly due to the trailer's quality and storability. I enjoyed assembling the trailer. It required a couple of hours to do by myself. The etrailer video is the way to go. Instruction manual can be used for reference, such as torque requirements. I recommend a torque wrench, don't want to take any chances on road safety. At any rate, because I had to assemble I felt the price should not have been so high. Also, as shown in my photos, one of the shocks arrived upside down. The shocks are preinstalled and I did not have the proper tools to remove and flip it. For this type of shock that is not important. None the less, I called etrailer customer service to confirm and bring it up. Lastly, the mobility is not great. That is simply due to being 2-wheeled. Not easy to back this guy down to a boat ramp. With practice maneuvering it is getting easier.

Odds and ends:
I ordered the spare tire and kickstand as well. The kickstand is yet to arrive due to manufacturer delay, but I put the spare on easily enough. etrailer staff is quite good, as noted elsewhere. They have been keeping me posted on order delays, and offering help.
The trailer arrived kit-wise in large cardboard boxes. I was not happy to find them broken open in several places. That is a delivery concern. Luckily very little damage to trailer components.
I live in Texas, which requires a license plate. I also registered the trailer, although not required. Both were fairly straight-forward. etrailer sent me a Bill of Sales (separately through USPS). This, along with a filled form available from DOT website & a small fee was all that was needed to leave with trailer plate in hand (title arriving later in the mail).
The manual mentions the dangers of the license plate several times. When stored on the trailer's end, the plate protrudes outwards and could be a cutting hazard. This was solved very easily by purchasing a silicone license plate frame for about $5.
Later I ordered a ball mount and trailer wiring kit. The ball had to be installed separately, but the good folks at my local [business] helped with that, free of charge. Hooking up the wiring kit was a breeze. The etrailer video made it easy once again, and lucky for me, they used my car during the demonstration.

The trailer is still working well. Finally received the trailer kickstand a few weeks ago 1.5yrs later! A really useful addition that keeps the trailer ready to go during camping trips or weekend use.



by:

The trailer came exactly as requested. It took me about 2.5 hours to put it together. I have never put something like this together before. I highly recommend utube for the instructions. etrailer was very quick to send my documentation that i needed for registration. They were very helpful and all the documentation came properly filled out so registration was quick and easy. The trailer holds 2 of our Hobie Kayaks. All the information was pretty straightforward no surprises. I bought the added holding arm which is separate but I am glad I did.



by:

Here is a picture of our Yakima trailer on vacation last summer in Jasper/Banff National Parks. The trailer was great! Let me know if you have any questions.

Wonderfully. It pulled like a dream and highly recommend it. A caution for those who have a cedar strip canoe: The trailer is open and all the road dust and mud got on the canoe. The dust got under the tie down straps and dulled the Spar varnish.



by:

The trailer was fine, only some minor scuffs from where the packaging was torn off. As far as customer service, it was not great. I received multiple emails after I ordered from different people at different stages. I was given the review to complete before I received all the packages. I also specifically asked about the paperwork because nobody reached out to me as indicated they would. Bottom line is I had to reach out multiple times to finally learn the paperwork shipped a week after my order.



by:

The trailer is high quality and well suited to the intended application. etrailer support has been outstanding. I will be using this trailer to transport 2 recumbent etrikes that weigh about 70 pounds each. It would be nice to have attachment and hold down rails/hardware for this application. Currently there is little available for recumbent trike applications. I will be fabricating my own trike carrier and load/unload ramps.



by:

What a cool trailer! I wasn't really expecting much when I first tried this trailer out. I was expecting such a light weight trailer to be bouncing and swinging all over the place... boy was I wrong. I took this guy out for 2 hour drive with two kayaks from St. Louis down to Lake Kinkaid on major highway, two lane country highway and country lanes. The Yakima handled them all like a champ.

I also really liked using the trailer vs. lifting boats and hauling on top of a vehicle. I didn't notice any excess drag while driving or getting blown around by cross winds like you get with boats on top. The end of the day was great too, just to back up to the water and quickly slide the boats on to the trailer rather than using tired muscles to lift overhead. I didn't back the trailer into the water like a powerboat trailer... not sure if that would be ok for the lights or not?

Benefits:
1. Long neck made for easy pulling, backing and easily fit my 14' kayak.
2. Independent suspension worked wonders for tracking straight and not swaying.
3. Lights are big and bright for night pulling such a small trailer (compared to power boat trailers).
4. Plenty of space to fit two kayaks flat. We could have easily fit two mountain bikes on there too if we wanted.
5. Handle at hitch makes for easy, one handed moving of the trailer even when loaded with the boats.
6. Hitch has a really smooth action and hooks up easily without fussing. I'm hoping that it keeps this up as use continues.

Negatives:
1. Definitely invest in some kind of boat cradling system. I had my kayaks directly on the cross bars which never works out well.
2. The trailer did dissapear behind my Tacoma when no boats were on it. Just had to be a bit more careful when backing.
3. Be prepared to answer "What is that thing?" at the boat launch.

I’ve used your service several times in the past and present. I shouldn’t have had to ask for my trailer title.
Hopefully better communications in future.
Best regards



by:

Time will tell but so far this is great! The trailer came in multiple boxes and was clearly labeled for a relatively easy installation. My wife and I put it together in about two and a half hours (taking our time). I still need to schedule an inspection and follow up on plates but all of the electrical tested out fine. We drove it around the neighborhood with a couple of kayaks on it and you can’t even tell its there. I have a couple neighbors that are now envious. We are looking forward to new adventures !

Great! Weve taken it on a couple short trips. The longest perhaps 230 miles. I have to keep checking to see that its there. It not only rides silently but tracks very well. It takes turns and sudden changes in road conditions with ease. Still very happy and all has been well for us. Love the product.



by:

Initial review. We received the four boxes with the parts of the trailer kit. Assembly was fairly easy ... especially when your 20 year old does it for you ;) . Between the instructions and the etrailer video, him and his friend were able to put it together with no issues. I back-checked it of course.

We decided on the Yakima trailer because of its aluminum construction, it's weight (very light), and previous reviews. We are towing this trailer with a Honda CRV so weight was important. After an initial wheel problem that was resolved quickly by etrailer, the trailer tows almost as if it isn't there. Only the occasional hitch noise will remind you that you're towing a trailer. No problems with the small CRV towing it.

A word on registering the trailer ... I've seen other reviews complain about the difficulty of getting the trailer registered. In our state, the trailer must be registered and have a plate. The laws in our state allows the Invoice to be substituted for the Materials Statement of Origin (MSO) when the trailer is a kit. This is key because the MSO is the hiccup in the other reviews. But after an hours wait at the DMV, the trailer was registered and we were on our way.

The true test is coming up when we will take it on an extended trip.



by:

The Yakima trailer is great looking, lightweight and easy to trail. It also folds and stores easily.

However, there are a few drawbacks. First, the trailer is NOT suitable for use as a boat trailer. The electrical is subject to fail since it was not designed for submersion. Second, the wheel bearing are not designed for use in the water, and especially not salt water, as they do not use a standard hub arrangement but rather brass bearings.



by:

So far does not work with the trailer i bought from Etrailer, their response is to troubleshoot with Yakima instead of trying to work through this with us. Is it the connector, the trailer, both. More to come....

do see that Yakima prefers to handle all warranty claims. That is probably why they sent you over there. Can you please elaborate on what is not working on this connector? Have you used a wire tester like part # PTW2993 to test out the wires on both the trailer and the adapter?

Good morning, the passenger side lights, from tongue down. The other side works. We used a volt meter as we do for all electrical issues.

So it sounds to me like a defect. Like I said before, Yakima prefers to handle all situations with their product. I will send you their contact information to you via email, and they should be able to get this corrected for you.



by:

Love our trailer ! Previously loading yaks on cartop - which was annoying on good days and a pain on windy days. Find we get out in our kayaks and go paddling a lot more often - because it so easy to load - unload, and secure the boats for travel. The trailer is great on the road, and easy to move around at home from garage to yard by hand.

Jeff

Trailer has been great - better than I would have expected.



by:

What I received was good, what I didn’t receive were the hub caps and then when I built the trailer I had to call and get the correct bolts.



by:

Awesome Order processing time and shipping. Ordered on Tuesday and the trailer was here Thursday. Packaging was fantastic and everything arrived in great shape. ETrailer has always been my first stop when looking for trailer equipment or the likes.



by:

I’ve had several trailers in the past but this far surpassed them. It’s super light, maneuvers easily, and stores easily

Frank

7/22/2024

After a year of use, I’m still very happy with it. Still occasionally forgetting it’s there it’s so light. Very happy with my choice



by:

I think it's going to be great, but it arrived via UPS in a box that was open in numerous places. Clearly heavier duty packing would be in order for individual shipments. Also, the assembly instructions provided were in French only. I think this is going to be great and worth a future 5 star update, but at the moment the 3 seems generous.



by:

The trailer is just what I needed to carry my fishing kayak. I ordered the 78" crossbars to be able to haul two kayaks. It trailers easily behind my van and I like that it can be quickly and easily reduced in size for compact storage in my small shed. Also, the light weight allows moving by hand in situations where backing up to the water is not practical. Previously I used a roof rack and was having difficulty getting the kayak on and off. The Rack and Roll Trailer - 78" - Y08107 solved that problem plus compact storage after use and looks great!



by:

I recently purchased the Yakima Rack-and-roll 78" trailer from etrailer.com

I will attempt to be as fair as possible in my review, as there have been numerous positive and negative aspects.

These equate to a mid-tier rating of "good", although it is important to note that in summary (maybe just because of the uniqueness of this product, as there are not similar ones from other competitors), I must say if I had to purchase this trailer again, I probably would.

General Impressions on Yakima:
I own numerous products from Yakima. In general I have found them to be of good quality and have not encountered too many issues. I have, on occasions, run into quality control issues in the past (a hitch-mounted bike rack with a frame bolt that came unsoldered) and this trailer was no exception.

General impressions on Etrailer:
I have also purchased from etrailer before, and will continue to do so. Up front, I must comment them for their service: they are truly customer-oriented, and their customer service is at par or above my other favorite online vendor, which is Amazon. They are safe online merchants and their customer service is amazing (thanks Cathy!)

Packaging/Shipping:
The trailer arrived well boxed, but a little banged up. The box had a couple of small holes, and was a little banged-up on one side. One of the amber running lights arrived cracked. Poor job by UPS. The rest of the packaging was ok.

Comments regarding the lights:
The lights are not all that sturdy (I twisted electric terminals in trying to untwist the light housing loose), but they are also easily replaceable. The assembly manual even lists at least three popular vendors of these lights, which you can find at any truck-stop or autoparts dealer. Etrailer was great about contacting Yakima and getting me a replacement for the one that came busted.

Comments regarding assembly:
The assembly/instruction manual is well printed in full color. There are easy step-by-step instructions to follow. They could have probably said the same and more effectively in a simpler brochure (too many pages, for my taste, to tell say you have to place part A over part B and bolt them together). But all in all the documentation is good. The assembly probably took me about an hour.

Comments regarding Locks:
The trailer comes with three locks: one for the trailer tongue, and one on each wheel block (to prevent someone from stealing the wheels). Two of the three bolts (the one on the wheels) had a serious manufacturer defect: the metal was broken and the lock barrel (upper half of the lock assembly) would come apart from the lock latch (lower half of the lock assembly). Bad job by Yakima's quality control. Great job by etrailer in contacting Yakima and getting me replacement locks free of charge.

Comments regarding wiring:
Probably the more serious issue I encountered was the fact that the wiring was reversed. The wiring harness starts with a flat 4-pin connector on the trailer tongue, and splits off to each side of the trailer with one cable for the "running lights" and another for the "turning lights" (ground is the aluminum frame). Because of how the trailer is assembled, there are two plugs that must be connected on each side of the trailer to provide continuity to the left-side and right-side wiring. On one side you have yellow and brown cables that plug into the continuation of those same yellow and brown cables. On the other side there is another plug which connects the green and brown cables to the continuation of those same green and brown cables. Both these plugs can only be plugged in one way. In other words, they cannot be reversed by rotating 180 degrees. Through a gross fault from the manufacturer, my connectors came twisted, to the point that on one side of the trailer, the yellow cable got connected to the brown one, and the brown one got connected to the yellow one. On the other side of the trailer, green paired with brown and brown paired with green. In other words, my license plate running light blinked with my turning signal. It took some meticulous work to disassemble the plug and redo the wiring. It was not rocket science, but coupled with the broken amber light and the missing locks, this was the straw that broke the camel's back. Yakima's quality control proved to be disastrous.

Comments regarding paperwork:
I live in Texas. Etrailer mailed me (separately) a bill of sale and a title. Getting the trailer registered (mandatory) and titled (optional for lightweight trailers in Texas) was a piece of cake. With this paperwork, I walked in and out of the tax assessor-collector's office in a blink of an eye, license plate in hand and all.

To top-off my "trailer experience", I later found my modulite (light wiring controller and harness on the vehicle side) had a short, which added time and pain to the troubleshooting, although this in particular had nothing to do with neither etrailer nor Yakima: that was me alone.

Bottom line: etrailer helped me all along the way towards fixing my trailer issues. All is working fine now. The downside is I spent several hours of my time trying to troubleshoot manufacturer errors. I am very disappointed in Yakima for their poor quality control. However, that said, the trailer frame is solid and well built, and the issues I encountered were mostly fixable and related to "peripherals" which are serviceable. Because no other competitor product comes even close to this trailer, I would purchase a rack-and-roll again if I had to.

Things I'd like to see in future models:
Considering one might only be hauling a couple of bikes or a cargo box, the trailer tongue is a bit long and almost unnecessary. By adding just a couple more holes to the side of the tongue (for the pin), and top the top (for the lock) they could have made the tongue length customizable. This might have added stability to the car. There may be reasons why the trailer is just this long, but there are applications for a <400lb trailer that call for a shorter tongue, and I would have simply liked Yakima to have offered that option.

The other downside noted by many previous buyers is that if you are looking into getting the sturdier (orange) spring suspension, Yakima will not trade in your blue ones... so you are basically left with a pair of new and worthless springs.

Other than that, this is a fine trailer.



by:

Great roof rack trailer! Saved my back from trying to lift and strap down a tandem kayak to my SUV roof. I have the trailer configured to hold a kayak, a stand up paddle board, and cargo basket. No troubles so far driving at highway speeds. Easy to disconnect and move away from the vehicle or to another part of the yard. I love the ability to store it upright in my garage when not in use.



by:

Easy to assemble with excellent video from etrailer . I strongly recommend using the video step by step , much easier than the instructions from Yakima .

The trailer itself is versatile and easy . I used it to transport furniture, but mostly for Kayaks and canoes, I often drive on rough dirt roads , and this trailer with its high wheels and suspension is great

It can fit the 48" crossbar spread you're needing without requiring a third crossbar for support and accepts any Yakima mount accessory that works with a crossbar spread of 41" to help you haul additional recreational equipment. With this cargo carrier you can use the Yakima KeelOver Rooftop Canoe Carrier with Tie-Downs - Universal...

  • Trailer Wiring Harness Needed For A 2023 Volkswagen ID 4
    To send your 2023 Volkswagen ID 4's brake, turn, and stop signals through to the Yakima Rack and Roll Trailer # Y08107 you'll need a 4-pole wiring harness with a tail light converter like the Curt Powered Tail Light Converter with 4-Pole Flat Trailer Connector # C59236. This wiring harness will splice into your tail light wiring of your vehicle and run up to the battery to power the converter. Since this is an all splice-in style wire harness you'll want to pick up some heat shrink butt...

  • Dimensions of Malone MicroSport Trailer for Storage
    The Malone MicroSport Trailer with Saddle Style Carriers for 2 Kayaks - 800 lbs # MPG461GU is 13'3" long with the tongue attached. The tongue is 90" long so removing it would leave you with 5'9" of trailer sitting up for storage. The wheel size isn't going to make a difference in the trailer performance when comparing the two. Although the # Y08107 has larger wheels, the overall height of the trailer is actually less when compared to the MicroSport. The MicroSport comes with a spare...

  • Recommended Trailer Hitch And Trailer To Carry 4 Bikes Behind 1999 Fleetwood Motorhome
    The best recommendation I can make for you is to install a trailer hitch on your motorhome if you do not have one, and use a trailer to carry your four bikes. None of the bike carriers we offer for a motorhome are rated high enough to handle your e-bikes that weigh 51-lbs each. If your motorhome has a frame that has a width less than 52 inches and more than 17 inches, I recommend the Curt Motor Home Trailer Hitch, part # C13702. If your frame is more than 24 inches but less than 46 inches...

    Although your Thule Sonic 634S - which has been replaced by the Thule Motion XT # TH629707 - can technically fit the 78" Yakima Rack and Roll Trailer # Y08107, the instructions for the Sonic specifically state not to use this cargo box on a trailer.

  • Can 78 Inch Bars Be Used on Yakima 66 Inch Rack and Roll Trailer # Y08106 without Conversion Kit
    I spoke with my contact at Yakima and although the Round 78 Inch CrossBars, # Y00411, will fit on the Yakima 66 Inch Rack and Roll Trailer, # Y08106, with out the Crossmember Conversion Kit, # Y08111, we can not recommend doing this. Since the Yakima 66 Inch Rack and Roll Trailer, # Y08106, was not designed for the longer bars, the center of gravity would be altered which would increase the chance of turning over the trailer.

  • Can The Yakima Rack And Roll Trailer Be Backed Into Water To Launch A Kayak
    Hey Drew, Yakima does not recommend backing the Yakima Rack and Roll Trailer # Y08107 into the water because the bearings are sealed and water could end up ruining the hubs. This trailer is more so designed just for getting your kayaks/accessories to your destination and not intended for use launching your kayaks. The Malone kayak trailers you mentioned are marine-grade and would be capable of being backed into the water to easily launch and recover your kayaks. We offer a crossbar-style...

  • Replacement Wheel and Inner Tube Recommendation for Yakima Rack and Roll Trailer
    The replacement inner tube for the Yakima Rack and Roll Spare part # Y08121 that you referenced is part # Y8880283. Not sure why you would want to run a tubeless tire on a Rack and Roll trailer like part # Y08107, but since it has never been tested I can't recommend it.

  • Can You Use the Yakima HD Crossbar On a Rack and Roll Trailer
    No. 78" Long Yakima HD bars # Y01159 cannot be mounted on the Yakima Rack and Roll Trailer # Y08107. The Rack and Roll trailer is only designed to be used with round crossbars. If you're looking for a kayak carrier that has a higher capacity and comes with the HD bars the Yakima Easy Rider # Y08129 is what you're looking for. The EasyRider is a double-decker trailer that gives you 2 levels of storage, plus the built in shocks on the trailer provide you with added cushioning to protect your...

  • Will the Nautic Kayak Carrier # RR570 Work with Yakima Round Bars on the Rack and Roll # Y08107
    The Rhino-Rack Nautic Roof Kayak Carrier # RR570 that you referenced has actually been tested and approved by Rhino-Rack to work with round, square, aero, elliptical, and most factory racks. Since the Yakima Rack and Roll Trailer # Y08107 uses standard round bars they are compatible with each other. The carrier will roll back or forth but only when the kayaks are not loaded.

  • Can the Yakima Rack and Roll Trailer Be Stored Upright in a Parking Spot with the Tow Vehicle
    The Yakima Rack and Roll Trailer # Y08107 can be stored upright. The trailer is 22" tall, so if stored upright the depth will be around 22". Give or take a little because it does sit at a slight angle when upright. It can be unhooked and stood up rather easily, the biggest question will be whether the parking space will be deep enough to fit the tow vehicle and trailer. Unless they are deep spots or you have a short vehicle, the odds of fitting both in one spot without excessive overhang...

  • Replacement Left And Right Frame Rail Assembly For The Yakima Lock And Roll Trailer
    I'm sorry to hear about the troubles you're having with your Yakima Rack and Roll Trailer # Y08107! However, the small light at the end of the frame rail is actually not replaceable. It comes as part of the entire left or right side frame rail assembly. The wiring inside the frame rail has likely been damaged and that is the reason it is not functioning. You can unbolt the frame rail on the affected side, and investigate all the wiring, to include all the connector and grounding wires....

  • Can a Roof Rack Tent Be Used on a Yakima Rack-n-Roll Trailer?
    You can definitely use the Yakima Rack and Roll Trailer - 78" item # Y08107 with a roof rack tent. The crossbars on the trailer are adjustable from 4-48 inches wide in order to accommodate the clamps of a roof top tent. For a great roof top tent, that will keep you well within the capacity of your trailer, I recommend the Thule Tepui Explorer Kukenam 3 Rooftop Tent item # TH8001KSK04. This is a two person tent that weighs just over 100 lbs. I have linked our selection of other roof top...

  • Is Replacing Inner Tube for Rack and Roll Trailer Like Replacing Tube on Bike
    The tires on a Yakima Rack and Roll Trailer (part # Y08106 or # Y08107) are much smaller than a vehicle so installing the Replacement Inner Tube # Y8880283 would be similar to a bike. If you've changed out the tube on a bike before or you're willing to give it a try then I say go for it. Otherwise if you're a little hesitant I'd reach out to a professional for some help.
