Note: This dual-arm rack reduces the need for a bike frame adapter bar (sold separately) to mount a children's, women's, or alternative frame bicycle. However, to mount certain bikes or to keep your bike level on the rack, a bike adapter bar may be required. Most step-through bikes, dual-suspension bikes, and small children's bikes will require a bike adapter bar.


Yakima RoadTrip 4-Bike Rack

The Yakima RoadTrip is a heavy-duty rack that allows you to carry up to 4 bicycles on the back of your vehicle - including RVs, motor homes, and travel trailers. It features SuperCush anti-sway cradles with ratcheting ZipStrip straps for easy bike loading. And it installs quickly and easily in your 2" hitch with a threaded anti-rattle hitch pin.


Desgined for RVs, Motor Homes, and Trailers

RoadTrip Mast and Shank

The RoadTrip is built to withstand the added vibration and stress that comes from being installed on the back of a RV, motor home, or travel trailer. The rack has no moving parts, and the mast attaches to the shank with welded brackets. These brackets attach to the shank with a pair of 12-mm, 10.9-grade alloy steel hex bolts. These overbuilt components ensure that the rack can take any punishment that the road may inflict.


SuperCush Anti-Sway Cradles with Ratcheting ZipStrip Straps

RoadTrip SuperCush Anti-Sway Cradles

The RoadTrip has premium SuperCush cradles to carry and protect your bikes during transport. The anti-sway cradles limit bike movement to help prevent bike-to-bike contact. Premium TPE padding protects your bikes' frames from damage by absorbing road shock and vibration.


RoadTrip ZipStrip Straps

The cradles also include ratcheting ZipStrip straps that make loading and unloading your bikes a breeze. Simply insert the strap into the buckles on the cradle and push it down until it's snug around your bike frame. The ZipStrips can be removed quickly by pressing the release levers on the sides of each anti-sway cradle.


Quick and Easy Installation

RoadTrip Threaded Hitch Pin

The rack installs with a threaded, anti-rattle hitch pin. Just slide the shank into your hitch, tighten down the threaded hitch pin, and secure the pin with the included clip. This not only secures the rack to your vehicle, but also reduces noise and movement of the rack in your hitch.


Integrated Bottle Openers

RoadTrip Integrated Bottle Openers

An integrated bottle opener on the end of each arm allows you to enjoy a cold one after a long ride.

Video Transcript for Yakima RoadTrip 4 Bike Rack Review

Today we'll be taking a look at the Yakima Road Trip 4 Bike Rack. Part number Y02477. The Yakima Road Trip is a heavy duty hitch mounted bike rack that let's you carry up to four bikes on your vehicle, motorhome, RV, or travel trailer. The dual arms provide excellent support for your bike, and the anti-sway cradle, as well as zip strips hold your bike at three points. We've gone ahead and removed our bikes to go over a few more features. Here on our cradles you can see the padding, that's going to help to reduce road shock and vibration. The bike rack is going to include two straps.

The smaller strap will be for a single bike tire, the one that's closest to our vehicle. The longer strap will be for when we have more than one bike on our bike rack. We want to wrap this around all of our bikes, and that will prevent any swaying back and forth, and bike to bike contact. At the base of our mast we have an integrated loop that allows you to secure a cable lock to your rack. You can find a Yakima cable lock available on etrailer.com, with part number Y07233. Our Yakima Road Trip comes with a threaded hitch pin.

When tightened completely down, it's going to keep a lot of shake and play out of the bike rack as you head down the road. For added security we do have a hitch lock available, with part number Y07235. Each arm comes with an integrated bottle opener, so that you can enjoy a cold beverage after a long ride. The Yakima Road Trip Hitch Bike Rack is made out of a sturdy steel construction, with chip resistant black powder coat finish. This bike rack has a carrying capacity of four bikes, with a weight capacity of 37 and a half pounds per bike. The rack comes with a limited lifetime warranty. To start our install we're going to take out bike rack and insert it into our hitch.

We'll slide it in until our pinholes are lined up. Next we'll take our anti-rattle bolt, insert it into our hitch pinhole, and start to tighten it down. Once we have that tightened down we can install our clip on the other side. Now to get our bike rack ready to load up our bikes we're going to start by removing our zip strips at the top and at that anti-sway cradle. Now we can grab our heaviest, largest bike, and put that on first. Now with our bike rack in place we'll go through replacing our zip strips.

You'll notice our bike was sitting a little lopsided earlier. We've gone ahead and added the Yakima tube top bike adapter bar to make it sit evenly. This is how you want all of your bikes to sit. You can find that adapter bar on etrailer.com, with part number Y02531. Now we can load up our other bikes. Now that we have all of our bikes installed on our bike rack we're going to take our stabilization strap here, and we're going to wrap it around all of our bikes. So we're just going to wrap these around our bike. So we have our strap wrapped around our bikes. We're going to run it through our buckle, and then we'll tie up our excess. Now with all four of our bikes loaded up, and our stabilization strap tightened down, we're ready to hit the road. Here on our test course we'll start by going through the slalom. This is going to show us the side to side action, which simulates turning corners or evasive maneuvers. Once we get to the alternating speed bumps we'll see the twisting action. This will simulate hitting a curb, or pothole, or driving over uneven pavement. Once we get to the full speed bumps we'll see the up and down action. This will be just like driving in and out of a parking lot, garage, or driveway. That's going to be our completed look at the Yakima Road Trip 4 Bike Rack, part number Y02477.

Being new to the RV world I found the team at etrailer to be very helpful; my new Yakima 4 bike carrier arrived quickly, was easy to assemble and attach. etrailer makes helpful suggestions on products that work well with your purchase that you might not know you would need; for me it was a lock at the hitch and for the bikes. 514985

Installed on my 5th wheel camper. Assembly took about 10 minutes. I purchased the Yakima adapter bars for my bikes b/c none have the straight bar that makes for easy mounting of the bikes. I liked that the 4 bikes went on rather easily with some minor adjustments of the seats and extra baskets on the kids bikes. I recommend this bike rack and the purchase of the adapter bars for easy placement of the bikes. I recommend this for the rear of the camper. Very sturdy rack! Received my product on time. I originally ordered the newer Yakima rack but it was unavailable for several weeks. Sierra called me the next day to tell me the delay of the product I originally ordered and offered some other options. Glad she did this or I would have been upset when I didn't get the bike rack in time to go on a camping trip that we had planned. Thanks for reaching out to me and letting me know rather than me finding out later that I wouldn't get my order in time! 362426

Just received this from etrailer, assembly was easy and everything looks sturdy. One thing I would mention: The instructions indicate that your bike needs to rest parallel to the ground. Aside from road bikes, most other bikes do not have top tubes that are parallel to the ground. Apparently there is an attachment available to help with this issue. I am sure it costs extra. If you have mountain bikes or beach cruisers this may not be the rack for you. 465181


Comments

Youll likely get along fine without an adapter bar unless your bikes are carried at such an angle that ground clearance could be compromised or one of the bike tires is closer than 12 inches to the vehicles exhaust.If you do need an adapter bar, we offer a reasonably priced one as part # 64005

Bike rack is well constructed and strong. Just what I need to attach to my tow-behind camper- don't want to lose bikes and rack on my way to somewhere. It is NOT light but this is a tradeoff...strong & secure or light & risky. 398951

Ask the Experts about this Yakima RV and Camper Bike Racks
Do you have a question about this RV and Camper Bike Rack?


  • Recommended 4 Bike Rack for a Class C Motorhome
  • When looking for a bike rack to use with a motorhome it is extremely important to make sure that the bike rack is approved for use on an RV. You are correct when talking about the extra movement at the rear of an RV. 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. Yakima has their RoadTrip 4 Bike Rack # Y02477 which is very similar to the Hitching Post Pro. It is rated for use on an RV, can carry up to...

  • Hitch Mount Bike Rack for 4-Bikes on the Back of a Travel Trailer Using Curt Bumper Hitch E-100
  • There are only certain bike racks that are rated for use on the back of an RV or trailer but the Thule Hitching Post Pro # TH934XTR is not one of them so I cannot recommend it. But there are several 4-bike racks that are rated for this application. You can use the Swagman Trailhead # S63381. This rack is most like the Thule. It features a 2-arm design and anti-sway cradles. It is a sturdy build to handle the riggers of being at the back of a trailer. Other racks that are rated for this...

  • Recommended Bike Racks for Use on Class C Winnebago View RV
  • RV-rated bike racks are made to withstand the extra stresses found at the rear of longer vehicles like a Class C Winnie View. Such RV bike carriers do not include a folding design since this would introduce a weak point, but some like the Swagman Trailhead # S63381 and the Yakima Road Trip # Y02477 do have arms that fold. On the linked page, which displays all RV-rated bike racks we offer, you can view 2-bike carriers like the Let's Go Aero BikeWing # B01311. This lightweight (12-lb)...

  • Platform Bike Rack Recommendation for the Back of a 5th Wheel Trailer
  • Yakima does have some bike racks rated for use at the back of an RV or trailer but the Dr. Tray, # Y02473, is not one of them. What I recommend is the Swagman Escapee # S64693. It is similar to the Dr. Tray in that it holds 2 bikes at the wheels but at a lower price. I have linked a video review of this bike rack for you (I'm in this video; the chubby guy!). The 2 Yakima RV/trailer approved racks both hold 4 bikes and are hanging style racks, # Y02476 and # Y02477. But they do not...

  • Bike Rack Recommendation for the Front of an A-Frame Trailer
  • First you will need a receiver on the front of the trailer if you want to use a hitch bike rack. We actually have the Bike Bunk # CC-275 but it is limited to 100 pounds total weight. Otherwise what I recommend is to use # D210 which has a receiver and ball mount platform allowing you to tow the trailer and carrier a bike rack with bikes. We also have some towing bike racks # S64675 and # S63390 you might be interested in. If you keep the bikes on the tow vehicle then you will not be...

  • Can Yakima RoadTrip Bike Rack be Used at the Back of an RV While Flat Towing a Vehicle
  • Yes, you can use the Yakima RoadTrip 4 Bike Rack # Y02477 when flat towing your 2016 Jeep Cherokee. You can use the dual hitch receiver # RM-077-2 which has a 2-1/4 inch rise/drop or # RM-077-4 with a 4 inch rise/drop.

  • Recommended Bike Rack for 4 Bikes on Both a 2006 Dodge Durango and an RV
  • Yakima just released a couple of bike racks which are approved to be used behind a motorhome. The RoadTrip # Y02477 and the LongHaul # Y02476. Both are 4-bike racks that use Yakima's SuperCush anti-sway cradles and ZipStrip straps. The anti-sway cradles help prevent the bikes from moving around and coming into contact with each other or the RV. They both fit a 2 inch hitch receiver on the back of your Class C and your 2006 Dodge Durango. The main difference between the two is that...

  • 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,...

  • Will Turning Clearance Issue Arise with Roadmaster Dual Hitch Adapter part # RM-077-6 and Bike Rack
  • Turning interference or interference from incline changes are possible with dual hitch adapters like the # RM-077-6. With the length of an RV flat towing a vehicle and the fact that the towed vehicle has 2 axles the pivot down on the inclines typically isn't too severe so clearance issues aren't common. Especially if the dual hitch adapter has a 6 inch rise difference like with the # RM-077-6. The Yakima bike rack would have to be RV approved like the Yakima RoadTrip 4 # Y02477 which...

  • Bike Rack Recommendation for 2015 Jayco Jay Flight SLX 184BH
  • For your 2015 Jayco Jay Flight SLX camper trailer I recommend the Yakima RoadTrip 4 Bike Rack # Y02477. The RoadTrip is designed for use behind a motor home or camper and will work well to carry up to 4 bikes behind your Jay Flight. This rack does require a 2 inch trailer hitch receiver on the trailer. If your spare tire is above the hitch receiver on your trailer, the spare will may need to be repositioned to allow the bike rack to fit. From the center of the hitch pin hole to the...

  • Can the Yakima RoadTrip Bike Rack be Used on the Back of a Travel Trailer
  • The Yakima RoadTrip # Y02477 and the LongHaul # Y02476 were both designed for use on the backs of RVs and trailers so they are great options for your application. Looking at the answers on the page there is only one on a travel trailer (until now!) and it does say outright that the RoadTrip is rated for this application. We'd be happy to add a video if you want to bring your trailer to us to shoot it! As far as videos go we are at the mercy of what our customers bring to us and what...

  • Is there a 4-Bike RV-Approved Bike Rack that Can Tilt Down with Bikes Loaded
  • Tilting bike racks are not available for RVs because where a rack pivots to tilt creates a point of weakness and because there is significantly more movement at the back of an RV it can cause a tilting rack to fail. The latest and greatest 4-bike RV-approved rack is the Yakima LongHaul 4 Bike Rack - 2" Hitches - Silver Item # Y02476. I have linked a video review of this rack for you. Another option that has a lower price point is the Lets Go Aero BikeWing T4 4-Bike Rack - 2" Hitches...

  • Overall Length of Yakima RoadTrip 4 Bike Rack
  • It sounds like you are wanting to use the Yakima RoadTrip 4 Bike Rack # Y02477 while towing your boat with a dual receiver like the Curt # D-192. From the center of the hitch pin hole on your dual receiver, to the furthest point on this rack (the end of the dual arms), there is a distance of 42-1/2 inches. You can measure this distance out from the center of the hitch pin hole on your dual hitch adapter to see if there will be any interference issues when it is mounted. There is also...

  • Can the Yakima DoubleDown Ace Bike Rack 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,...

  • Bike Rack Solution to Allow Carrying 5 Bikes at Rear of Class A Motorhome
  • For the rear of an RV we only have 4 bike racks available like the Yakima RoadTrip part # Y02477 which would be a great option. If you have an RV ladder you may be able to carry the additional bike on the Swagman Ladder bike rack part # S80630 but that will depend largely on available space.

  • Hitch Bike Rack Recommendation for Rear of RV
  • We dont' have the parts you mentioned so we don't have any firsthand experience with them, but since you said 4 inch square bumper that most likely means you are planning on carrying a bike rack at the rear of an RV which when you do this you have to be sure to use a bike rack approved for use behind and RV. If you are looking for a hitch to fit a 4 inch bumper though we have the part # E-100. At the rear of a trailer or RV the ride quality is very rough when compared to the ride quality...

  • Trailer Hitch Fit for a 2018 Coleman by Dutchman 2855BH Travel Trailer for Bike Rack
  • The advantage the Ultra-Fab trailer hitch part # UF35-946403 has over the Curt # 13703 is that it does not require the use of a stabilizer strap when carrying a non-supported load. As long as your trailer has a frame width of 47-1/8" to 77" and is I-beam, C-channel or rectangular this will work great. You should note that Thule bike racks are not rated for use behind camper trailers so you'll need to upgrade to a bike rack that is rated for use behind a trailer like the Yakima RoadTrip...

  • What Is The Best Hitch Mounted Bike Rack For An RV Capable Of Hauling Multiple Bikes
  • As we have an enormous variety of bike racks, it can be very difficult to choose the correct one. The only major difference to consider for hauling your bikes is mounting options, such as a frame or wheel mount. The wheel mount options are great for bike with unique/delicate frames whereas the frame mount bike racks are more universal and do not offer as much protection to the frame. For a frame mounted bike rack capable of carrying two bikes, I recommend Yakima RoadTrip 4 Bike Rack...

  • Recommended Hitch Mounted Hanging Bike Rack for RV Use
  • It's not that we don't recommend Thule or Rhino-Rack bike racks for RV use. It's that many bike racks are not approved by the manufacturer to be used on an RV. The long wheel base of an RV causes more bouncing around and a bike rack not made for that type of movement will not hold up to the additional strain on it. The Let's Go Aero BikeWing # B01311 is rated and approved by the manufacturer for RV use. If you'd prefer a traditional hanging rack I like the Yakima RoadTrip # Y02477....

  • I have the perfect option available for you to carry a bike rack on the front of your a-frame trailer. For this you will want the Stromberg Carlson Bike Bunk Trailer-Mounted Bike Rack Carrier for A-Frame Trailers part # CC-275. The Stromberg Bike Bunk is designed to fit an a-frame trailer width of 14-55". It also has a 100 lbs weight capacity suitable for most bike racks. For a bike rack designed for use with this bike bunk, I recommend the Yakima RoadTrip 4 Bike Rack part # Y02477....
