Video Transcript for Yakima LongHaul 4 Bike Rack Review

Today we're going to be taking a look at the Yakima Long Haul Hanging Style 4 Bike Rack for 2" hitches. Now this is going to be for RVs, travel trailers, and motor homes. Part number Y02476. The Yakima Long Haul is specifically designed for RVs, motor homes, or travel trailers. It's heavy duty, and because it has limited moving parts it's going to be more stable here at the rear of your recreational vehicle. It's not just for RVs. You can use it on any vehicle with a 2" receiver.

I've gone ahead and removed a few bikes so we can take a closer look. It secures our bikes with three points of contact. We've got two zip strips for our top tube, and then one for our seat post tube. This one's going to be our anti-sway. It's going to help prevent sway in our bike when we're on the road, as well as prevent bike-to-bike contact, and bike-to-vehicle contact. Both our zip strips and our cradles have super-cush padding.

It's going to offer a nice ride for our bikes. When not in use our dual arms fold down for more clearance here at the rear of our RV. Simply press in on the lever, guide it down until it snaps into place. The whole thing is made out of a sturdy steel construction with a chip resistant silver powder-coated finish. It's full welded here at the bottom, and since it's powder-coated it's going to resist rust and corrosion. The included anti-rattle bolt is going to help reduce all the play and all the rattle between our receiver and our bike rack.

The lock is also included, and it uses the same key system as our cable lock up top. That cable lock is just integrated here at the back, and two keys are included. It has a weight capacity of 37-1/2 pound per bike, and it features a limited lifetime warranty. Now that we've gone over some of the features I'll go ahead and show you how to get it installed. First thing we'll do is load our shank in and line up our pinholes. Now this is going to be done the same way whether installing it on an RV or a vehicle.

Once we've got our pinholes aligned we'll take our included anti-rattle bolt, we're going to thread that through on the passenger side. Once we get it hand tightened we can grab a wrench and tighten it down the rest of the way. Now the size is just going to be 15/16. Get that nice and secure. I'll take my lock, and put it on the other side, and lock it up. Then I'll just put on my dust cap and we're all set. In preparation for loading up our bikes we'll need to raise up the dual arms. To do that we've got a gray lever up top, just swing up until it snaps in. Now let's remove our zip strips. To do that, squeeze in on the two tabs, and they come on out. Now it's going to be way easier to load your bike up if you fold the anti-sway cradle up out of the way. So that's just what we'll do. Now it's recommended that you load up the heaviest bike first, so we'll grab out mountain bike and we'll just work our way on towards the front. Now we want to make sure that our seat post tube is nice and snug up against our anti-sway cradle. Then we'll just go ahead and replace our zip strips. Then we can just do our top two zip strips and we'll repeat the process with our remaining bikes. Some bikes such as women's, children's, and bikes with alternative frame styles may need a bike adaptor bar to sit evenly on the cradles. Yakima makes one, it's called the Yakima Tube Top. That's part number Y02531. With all of our bikes loaded up Yakima's provided us with two straps. If we we're just carrying one bike with us, the smaller strap holds our front wheel in place and prevents it from spinning. Since we've got all the bikes loaded up we're going to use our larger strap, and we'll show you how to run that. We'll start by putting it through our wheels and working our way towards the back. Then we want to be sure to go around our mast, and then we'll just go back out through our wheels. Then we'll just connect it to our buckle and pull it tight. This is going to prevent our wheels from spinning, and prevent our bikes from swaying at high speeds. Last thing we'll do is run our cable lock. It's integrated within the mast, so we'll just pull it all the way out, then we'll go over the top of our bikes, and then just snap it in. With all of our bikes loaded up and secure let's go ahead and take it out on our test course and see how it performs. Here on our test course let's first go into our slalom. This is going to show side-to-side action such as going around corners, or evasive maneuvering. Then onto our solid speed bumps. This is going to show and up and down action, such as pulling in and out of a garage or a parking lot. Then finally onto our alternating speed bumps. This is going to show a twisting action such as going over pot holes or uneven pavement. That's going to complete our look at the Yakima Long Haul Hanging Style 4 Bike Rack for 2" hitches, part number Y02476.

Comments
Larry, thank you for your review. When using a hanging bike rack such as part Y02476 you will need an adapter bar for bikes that do not have a top cross tube on the frame. I would recommend part # Y02531
Yakima Tube Top Bike Adapter Bar
$49.00
. This adapter will create a straight tube top for alternative frame bikes and allow it to hang evenly.

Fast shipping as always. Product is heavy and well built: Exactly what I was looking for. I have four heavy steel bikes and lots of miles ahead of us. I didn’t want a flimsy poorly built product. Bonus: both ends of the fork have bottle openers.... [thumbs up] I will try to remember to write another review after a few trips. 739653

AWESOME rack! Customer service was very helpful and informative. This is the second time I have ordered from them and would recommend them for all your trailering needs. 666850

For normal bikes behind a 38 ft. Fifth wheel this is unbeatable with anything rated as such in the market. However it cant handle normal weight of a Day 6 bike so I have to remove seat and wheels. In so doing it would be better if the design allowed the pads to rotate on the bar because the angle caused quick pad wear. I would like the set up to be able to handle at least 1 55 lb bike on an RV. The zip tie down are absolutely a great idea. We have travelled many miles in the midwest and have had no issues. 657172

I'm going to use it for long trips both on the back of a camper and an SUV. The joint between the upright post and the hitch insert appears to be very strong. I preferred this over the tilt style for the additional strength. Arms fold up/down easily. Frame mounts are soft and straps are easy to use. It's tall, the bikes ride high especially on back of the camper....very unlikely that they would drag the road in any steep hill or deep dip situations. Mine arrived without the hardware bag but etrailer customer service was great and sent a bag free of charge that arrived a couple days later. 539133

The product was shipped fast and delivered before expected. The checkout process was seamless. Most importantly, the tutorial videos created for each product allowed me understand each product and how they differed and ultimately choose the best product for my needs. The detail in the videos makes it unnecessary to physically go to a store to get "hands on" the products. I've bought several products from eTrailer and will continue to do so. 420525

Received the bike rack yesterday. The packaging was very stout and even though the box was damaged in transit, there was no damage whatsoever to the bike rack. Assembly is very easy and took less than 10 minutes. I'm using this in the hitch (2") on the back of my Glacier Peak 5th wheel. The hitch is very sturdy, built well, powder coating (gray) looks good and came with a cable lock to lock the bikes to the rack and a hitch lock to lock the rack in the hitch. Locks are keyed alike. 366637

Ask the Experts about this Yakima Hitch Bike Racks

  • Bike Rack for a 2017 Winnebago ERA 70M with Offset Spare Tire
    I have a recommendation for you, however the Yakima LongHaul, part # Y02476 will not be a good pick for your application. I've attached a video review of the Yakima LongHaul that shows its installation a little clearer. The Yakima Longhaul only sits 11-1/2 inches away from the hitch pin hole, so its unlikely it will clear your spare tire if its furthest point is 15-1/2 inches. Additionally, its never recommended to exceed the per-bike weight capacity of any bike rack, especially on...

  • Differences Between the Yakima LongHaul and RoadTrip 4-Bike Racks for RVs
    Both the Yakima LongHaul, part # Y02476 and the RoadTrip, part # Y02477, are RV rated bike racks that are extremely similar, but have a few differences that can change which is best for you. I've included our video review of both racks to help you get a feel for each of them. The LongHaul's major differences from the RoadTrip is the integrated lock system and overall heftier construction. The LongHaul includes an integrated hitch lock to secure the rack to the vehicle when not in use,...

  • Yakima Bike Rack Recommendation for Rear of 5th Wheel Trailer
    We do have a few bike racks that are designed for use at the rear of an RV like the Yakima Longhaul part # Y02476. This rack can carry up to 4 bikes and would work well for you. Check out the review video I attached for this rack as well. At the rear of a trailer or RV the ride quality is very rough when compared to the ride quality at the rear of a passenger vehicle. Reason being the suspension isn't as sophisticated and there is a longer distance between the rear axle and the rear...

  • Recommend RV Rated Bike Rack to Carry 4 Bikes on a Travel Trailer
    Trailers and RV's have a lot more movement at the rear because the rear axle is much further away from the actual hitch. Therefore the bike rack will take on addition stress when compared to a standard passenger vehicle. I've linked our complete selection of 4-bike racks that are rated for you to use on your travel trailer. I personally recommend the Yakima LongHaul # Y02476. Since it's a hanging rack it accommodates a wide variety of bikes. The exception being those that don't have...

    Sounds like you are looking for a bike rack recommendation for the back of an RV. I really like the Yakima Long Haul part # Y02476. It's a high quality rack from one of the industry leaders in bike racks that has been reinforced for the rougher ride quality at the rear of an RV. It also has folding arms and anti-sway cages as well.

  • Adapter Bar for Womans Bike Carried on Yakima LongHaul 4 Bike Hanging Style Rack
    When a bike does not have a horizontal top frame tube (as is found on a typical boy's bike) an adapter bar such as # UB01 can provide a handy way to mount such a bike on a standard hanging style bike carrier that uses two arms to hold the bike, such as the Yakima LongHaul 4 Bike Rack that you referenced, part # Y02476. The Longhaul's arms are spaced closer together than on many racks, and this can reduce the need for adapter bars, but some bikes, especially kids' bikes, may still benefit...

  • Recommended Hitch Mounted Rack to Carry 4 Bikes on the Back of a Camper
    There is a lot more movement at the rear of a trailer or an RV due to the longer wheelbase. This causes additional stress on hitch mounted accessories. Many bike racks are not designed or rated to handle the additional stress. With that being said some bike racks are designed and rated to be used on the back of RVs and trailers. One of the top such racks is the Yakima LongHaul # Y02476. The LongHaul can carry up to 4 bikes and includes locks for the rack and the bikes, just like...

  • Yakima Bike Rack That Can Be Used at the Back of a Travel Trailer
    Yakima does have some bike racks that are approved for use on the back of your travel trailer but the DoubleDown Ace Y02451 is not one of them. Yakima made the LongHaul # Y02476 and the RoadTrip # Y02477 and they are rated for use at the back of an RV or trailer. These racks only fit 2 inch hitch receivers though. I know that some of the smaller travel trailers could be equipped with a 1-1/4 inch hitch. If that is what you have then you could only use a 2-bike rack, # B01311. Or,...

  • How Tall Is the Yakima LongHaul RV Bike Rack To Use With Front Mount Hitch
    The Yakima LongHaul RV Bike Rack is part # Y02476 41" tall and the shank is 13" from pin hole to the bike rack so it will stick out about 13" from the Curt Front Mount Trailer Hitch Receiver # C31083 on the 2016 Ford F-150. I do recommend to make sure you were not blocking all air flow to the vehicle's grill. It is better to have a little bit of space between the bike rack and the front of the truck.

This rack has anti-sway cradles built into the rack as well which prevents them from hitting each other while travelling. Check out the review video I attached for more info as well. We don't have any 4 bike platform racks for the rear of an RV at this time so that's not a solution I can provide you with. If you plan on carrying any womens or alternative framed...

  • Will Yakima LongHaul Bike Rack Clear the Bay Window on a Ice Castle Fish House
    On your Ice Castle fish house the distance from the center of the hitch pin hole to clear that bay window would need to be less than 10 inches for the Yakima LongHaul # Y02476 to clear it. If you have a different measurement let me know what it is and I can determine if we have something that will fit.

    The LongHaul part # Y02476 is 42 inches from the top of the shank that slides into the hitch to the top of the rack. If you measure from the ground to the top of your vehicle hitch opening and then add 42 inches you will know how high you would need to lift this rack.

  • Should Extra Cradles of Yakima LongHaul 4 Bike Rack # Y02476 be Removed when Carrying 2 Bikes
    If you wanted to carry just two bikes with the Yakima LongHaul 4 Bike Rack # Y02476 you certainly could without removing the extra frame cradles. Easiest way would be to remove the zip straps and anti-sway cradles from the cradles that wouldn't be in use. To get the cradles totally off of the arms would require removing the end caps of the arms which they aren't designed to easily do that. Some people like to buy hanging bike racks like this with more cradles than needed so that they have...

    You have done your homework and that makes helping easy. As you mentioned the RV compatible bike racks are created to be more rigid than the typical vehicle hitch mounted carriers.

You can absolutely use an RV rated bike rack on the back of your truck without issue and there are some really nice hanging style options....

  • Bike Rack and Hitch Recommendation for Rear of 2019 Winnebago Minnnie 1710
    First issue you are going to have is that the Yakima SwingDaddy is not rated for use at the rear of a camper so for a similar 4 bike rack from Yakima that is rated for camper use we have the Yakima LongHaul part # Y02476. At the rear of a camper is much rougher than at the rear of a passenger vehicle so that's why specially reinforced racks have to be used. Then for a hitch we have the Curt part # 13703 which can fit all frame styles that are between 22 and 72 inches apart from outside...

  • Why are some Yakima Bike Racks Rated for Use Behind Trailer But not Thule
    At the rear of a trailer the ride quality is very rough when compared to the ride quality at the rear of a passenger vehicle. Reason being the suspension isn't as sophisticated and there is a longer distance between the rear axle and the rear of the trailer which exaggerates the movement of the trailer when hitting bumps. Because of that only a few bike racks were designed to be reinforced enough for that type of use. Thule recently came out and said that some of their racks can be...

  • Can a Bike Rack Be Used with the Ready Brake when Flat Towing a Vehicle?
    There are a couple of options that will enable you to use a bike rack in your current setup. The simplest option would be to attach a bike rack to the back of the Cherokee like the Yakima LongHaul, # Y02476. In order to carry a bike rack with your Ready Brake on the back of your RV, you could use a dual hitch adapter like Roadmaster's 4" Drop/Rise Adapter, # RM-077-4.

  • Can I Use a 1-1/4 Inch to 2 Inch Trailer Hitch Adapter on a 2015 Subaru Outback for a Bike Rack
    We do have trailer hitch adapters that will work for you but lets go over some of the restrictions first when using one. For starters, if you are using the Yakima LongHaul 4 Bike Rack part # Y02476 with a class I 1-1/4" trailer hitch receiver then you will be limited to two bikes, not matter the capacity. As you mentioned, the 200 lb weight capacity of your 2015 Subaru Outback Wagon is then cut in half when using a hitch adapter so that means you have a total of 100 lbs, minus the 40 lbs...

    While most all bike racks are designed for 1-1/4" or 2" hitch receivers, a solution that will work great for your Class V, 3" receiver is the Buyers Products 3" to 2" Receiver Tube Adapter # 337RTA302. This adapter will not reduce the capacity of your 3" hitch which is not all that important to a bike rack but should help if you also use it for 2" towing accessories. A lightweight and simple bike rack solution to consider is the Lets Go Aero BikeWing T4, 2+2 4-Bike Rack # B01458....

  • Hitch Mounted 4-Bike Rack That is Rated for Use on Motorhome
    The Yakima SwingDaddy, along with other bike racks that are not rated for use behind motorhomes or trailers, are rated that way by the manufacturers due to the more pronounced and heavier back-and-forth and up-and-down movement that occurs on a motorhome as opposed to a passenger car. This movement creates more stress on the bike rack and manufacturers have deemed these racks unsuitable for this type of extreme movement. What I recommend instead are the Thule Apex Swing XT # TH9027XT,...

This is, of course, in part due to cost but it's also a Swagman who has done very well with bike racks for RV's.

The Thule Hitching Post Pro # TH934XTR that you referenced is not rated for use on an RV, but I do have some other options for you.

This rack is designed for RV use, so it is sturdy and it comes with an anti-rattle hitch lock and cable to secure your investment.

  • Using a Thule T2 Bike Rack Behind a Travel Trailer
    Whether or not a bike rack is able to be used behind an RV or trailer is determined by a manufacturer. RV and trailer compatible bike racks tend to be more compact, and made of stronger components than traditional racks to help deal with the increased amount of force that the location of the hitch on a travel trailer in relation to its rear axle applies to the rack. Thule doesn't recommend any of their bike racks be used behind RVs or trailers. Generally, RV compatible racks are either...

This will allow the top raised portion of the adapter to accept an RV compatible bike rack and the lower portion will accept your tow bar.
