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.

Video Transcript for Yakima Rack and Roll Trailer Review

Today we'll be taking a look at the Yakima Rack and Roll Trailer, 66 inch, part number Y08106. This is also available with 78 in chapter cross bars for part number Y08107. The premium lightweight sports trailer is the perfect way to haul your bikes, water sport racks, cargo baskets, or cargo boxes using the integrated adjustable 66 inches crossbars as anchor points. The pull behind roof rack hauls 250 pounds. It conveniently stores in your garage. Today on our Yakima Rack and Roll, we have a kayak and a kayak carrier, our bike and our cargo box all loaded up. The trailer itself has a 250 pound capacity.

You can pick and choose a combination of Yakima accessories and gear to load on your Yakima trailer. One of the greater features about the Yakima Rack and Roll is that it has a lower loading height, so no more lifting gear over your head onto your vehicle. The frame is made from a lightweight aluminum. It's going to be very easy to store and maneuver around. The locking system is also going to help deter theft. This is a premium trailer.

It has automotive grade finish and custom cast alloy wheels. With the trailer unloaded, we're going to you through some more features and specifications. Here at the front, you're going to notice that we have a coupler with a trigger latch system. That's going to allow us to engage or disconnect from our 2 inch hitch ball. It's also got a little hole right here. That way we can install a coupler pin or a coupler lock.

You can find those on our website. They're going to be sold separately. It's going to use a standard four pull flat adapter to connect to your tow vehicle. The coupler is going to measure off the ground about 19 inches from the ground to the bottom of our coupler. Our coupler's going to feature a 2 inch wide coupler tongue. We're also going to have a safety chain hook up.

That way we can hook it to our vehicle to ensure that if we we're to become disconnected from the tow vehicle, this is going to come into play. It's going to keep the trailer close by, until we have time to stop and fix the issue. It's also got a nice carrying handle. That way we can disconnect the trailer and then we can have more functions and maneuver it to where we need to go. We got the extended tongue here. It's going to allow a lot of distance between the actual trailer and the back of our tow vehicle. It's also going to feature a safety lock system. There's a little groove in the tongue that the safety lock system engages. We stick the key in, move to an unlock position. It's going to allow us to open up that lever. In that case, we'd be able to slide the tongue back into the trailer. We'll show you that a little bit later, when we move it to a stored position. Coming back here, at the back of the tongue, we have another four pull that's going to come out. This is going to connect to the light assembly on our trailer. All the wires are ran inside the tongue of the trailer. They're going to be hidden, except for the connection points. Those are all going to be exposed. This trailer's going to feature two 66 inch cross bars. These are adjustable simply by loosening up the bolts and the nuts. Then you can slide them in the channel to whatever distance that you need to haul your accessories. Up here, we're going to have the lights, two lights up here; marker lights, side marker lights. We have a nice fender that's going to protect the wheel. It's also going to protect the gear that we're hauling from anything, road debris flying up and hitting our gear. We got two lights; here on the fender, one on the side. We got one on the rear. Down here on our tire, it has a nice five spoke design. This hub can easily be removed. That way if you ever need to change your tire or put a spare on there, you can easily gain access to the hardware that you need to take off to remove the tire from its current location. The tire size is going to be 3.25-1655P. It is a nylon grade tire, has a nice tread design. It is going to provide good traction in wet and dry conditions. You can also see on this side that we have shocks. Those are going to absorb that different bumps. Let's say if we hit a pothole with our gear loaded, it's going to take any of that cushion out from damaging our gear. Also, here at the rear, want to show you this last thing. We have a license plate holder and a license plate light. The license plate light is faced the right direction. It's intended to shine back towards the license plate variety. That way it will illuminate a license plate so it can easily be read. One of the great features about the Yakima Rack and Roll is its ability to be moved a stored position. A few little steps that we need to do before we can move it to a stored position. We need to open up our lever, remove our safety pin. Then we need to undo our four way connection. Now, we can take the extended part of our trailer, slide it into the slot. Then, we can move it up against our wall and push it up into a stored position. Now, with it in this position, it has wheels here on the bottom. That's going to allow us to gain access to lateral movement. That way, we can still have maneuverability of the trailer, even with it in a stored position. You can also use the cross bar system to easily hang this up on your wall as well. Now, we're going to unhook our trailer, show you how easy this handle can be used. With our trailer fully weighed down, we have full access to maneuver it anyway that we need to. The handle also comes into play for an easy hook up. With our gear all loaded up, we're going to take it out on our test course and show you how it performs. We're going to take it through our slalom course, which is going to offer some side to side movement, giving you the real life example of making quick turns or going around curves. As we make our corner, we're going to hit our alternating bumps course. This is going to show you the side to side movement and a simulation of hitting potholes. Then, we're going to go through our inaudible 00:06:36, which is going to give you an example of how this would perform going in and out of parking lots or going over speed bumps. That's going to do it for today's review of the Yakima Rack and Roll trailer 66 inch bars, part number Y08106. .

OUTSTANDING Trailer. Pulls, tracks and handles rough roads awesome! I love it. 19475

- Y08107

Fits two tandem kayaks and a Yakima cargo carrier - about 225 lbs of gear. Tracks well at highway speeds. No swaying at all. No squeeking and clanking that you typically hear with a utility trailer. Easy to assemble and store. Quite a nice trailer. 19545

- Y08107

This trailer is easy to assemble, simple, and lightweight. Its low deck height makes it easy to swap out different racks, so it's easy to convert from bike mode to kayak mode or some combination of both. The kickstand is a little flimsy, but it's quite solid otherwise. 249282

- Y08107

High quality trailer and superb customer service. Fast shipping. I upgraded to enhanced suspension in case I decide to build a heavier boat in future. This trailer rides like it's not there, smooth ride. California DMV accepted the paper work documentation without question, so registration was a piece of cake. Advice: this is a finely machined trailer, so in order to ease the assembly process FOLLOW INSTRUCTIONS EXACTLY, taking your time. Did I mention the customer service was SUPERB? 172691

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! 321974

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. 130141

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. 50106

I got Lots of boxes with items well packed . Assembly - take your time - manual is good and answers each step well. Parts are high quality and finished build is very satisfying. After I use it for a while I can say more. I talked to several long term owners and both said No problems and satisfied. 647616

Great to deal with!! 560483

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. 510910

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. 488817

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.

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 412681

- Y08107

Trailer was everything I expected, will work great to haul my kayaks. It took about two weeks to get it UPS delivered. I would of gave 5 stars but I had troubles getting a license plate. I needed a '' MSO '' Manufacturers Certificate of Origin. The trailer did not come with this and it turned in to a goat rope after that. 410005

Review from a similar Yakima Rack and Roll in Trailers

I hesitated to choose this trailer from Yakima due to price, but research suggested that it is of the highest quality and I found that to be true. It is extremely well engineered and is easy to put together. The instructions are simple and clear. I can't report road experience with it yet as I'm just getting it licensed, but it looks strong and is very light in weight. The fold-away storage features are a bonus for those with limited garage space. The key connections are pinned in place with precision pins and bow-tie cotters. It really could not be much easier. Well done Yakima. And service at etrailer is great. They communicate and follow up! 278992

Review from a similar Yakima Rack and Roll in Trailers

Etrailer service and ordering was great. Assembly was a simple and fun process. We bought this trailer to accommodate our 20' kayak (and our 14' boats, too). So *much* easier than getting them up to the roof rack! Now, loading and unloading is a snap, both at home and at the water. The trailer itself is ultra-light, easy to move manually, and certainly tows with no trouble. 604380

Review from a similar Yakima Rack and Roll in Trailers

I just got the product today and can only rate it on putting it together and storage. Putting it together was simple enough, even though there seemed to be a couple of cases where I was scratching my head at the instructions, but that was mostly me not being used to the trailer-vocabulary. I don't recall anything troublesome or tricky. Probably took me 1.5 hrs with a couple of breaks. I feel like most of my time was unpacking everything. Storage was awesome. A few ways to do it. I chose the one where you take the wheels off. I plan on using this for my Hobie mirage revolution 11 kayak, also getting the yakima basket for it, and maybe that tongue stand. The build quality seems really solid, and the parts are nice. 480547

Ask the Experts about this Yakima Trailers

  • What Makes the Yakima Rack and Roll Different From the Malone MicroSport Trailers
    The Yakima Rack and Roll Trailer part # Y08107 is designed primarily for lighter loads such as watersport accessories and cargo. These lighter loads require a more sophisticated suspension i.e. coilovers in order to ride smoothly. If you just need to carry more weight and don't mind a rougher ride then you can go with the Malone MicroSport Trailer part # MPG460G which has an 800 lbs weight capacity and utilizes a less sophisticated leaf spring suspension system that can carry more yes but...

  • Sport Trailer With 15 Inch Hitch Ball Height
    I have a great option that is going to work for you, though I checked with Yakima, and to use the Rack and Roll Trailer # Y08107 the top of the hitch ball must be 22" off the ground. An inch or two in either direction would work, but the seven inch difference you have would make the trailer susceptible to fishtailing due to the uneven tongue height. With that said, there is a similar trailer that is going to work very well for you, the Malone MicroSportXT Trailer # MPG460XT, which requires...

  • Recommended Tongue Extension For Yakima Rack And Roll Trailer For 16-1/2 Ft Canoe
    To be on the safe side I recommend the Tongue Extension Kit for Yakima Rack and Roll Trailer, part # Y08109. This is designed to allow you to be able to carry longer boats on the Ranck and Roll Trailer without having to shift the canoe one way or the other. Using this extension will allow you to be able to carry a boat up to 22 feet long. The crossbars on the Rack and Roll trailer can be spread a maximum distance of 48 inches, and the distance from the center of the coupler to the center...

  • What is the Difference Between the 78 and 66 Inch Yakima Rack n Roll Trailers
    The 78 inch Yakima Rack n Roll trailer # Y08107 is actually wider overall than its 66 inch counterpart, # Y08106. So it is not just the crossbars. Because the price difference between the 2 is minimal it would be more beneficial to just go with the 78 inch model. We actually have couple of other options.

  • Finding a Ball Mount with the Right Rise to Tow a Yakima Rack and Roll Trailer Level
    When towing any trailer, you will want to tow it level. To do this all you need is a ball mount that offers the correct rise or drop (rise in your case). To determine the correct amount of rise you will need, park the SX-4 on level ground and measure from the ground up to the TOP of the receiver opening. If that measurement is the 12 inches you mentioned then you will need a ball mount with a 10 inch rise. I have included a link to an FAQ article that explains how to measure for the...

  • Rack and Roll Trailer Grease Recommendation
    Trailer bearings should always be packed with grease to reduce rolling friction and heat. Heat build-up is the biggest threat to your trailer's bearings. The Yakima Rack and Roll Trailer # Y08107 uses white lithium grease in its hubs, such as # L10307 from UltraLube. You can refer to the linked assembly video for the trailer to see how the wheel/hub is lubricated. The linked article covering trailer maintenance may be helpful to you in keeping your Rack and Roll on the road.

  • Parts Needed to Mount Kayaks on the Yakima Rack and Roll Trailer # Y08107
    On the Yakima Rack and Roll trailer, # Y08107, you will want to use a compatible kayak carrier unless you do not mind the kayaks sitting directly on the bars. I recommend a couple sets of foam blocks, # SR5525, because they are cost effective and they come with bow and stern tie downs to secure the kayaks to the trailer. If your kayaks are longer than 17 feet, you will want to add the tongue extension, # Y08109, so the kayaks do not make contact with the tow vehicle. I have included...

  • How Long Do the Wheel Bearings Last in the Yakima Rack and Roll Trailer
    Since we have started carrying the Yakima Rack and Roll trailer # Y08107 I have not heard any complaints regarding the wheel bearings failing and only a few instances where people wanted to replace the wheel assembly. The bearings, since they are sealed, are meant to basically last the life of the trailer. This is of course assuming normal use and not overloading the trailer. Should a wheel ever need to be replaced it is # Y08121. The trailer has a 250 pound capacity but that can...

  • Way to Transport Dirt Bike with Class I Hitch
    Your Jetta is going to be restricted to a Class I hitch. There are no Class II hitches available for your Jetta. And a dirt bike and carrier would exceed the weight rating of any Class I trailer hitch for the Volkswagen Jetta. We do offer a few small trailers, for carrying mobility scooters/wheelchairs, motorcycles, kayaks, etc that might work for you. You can see them by clicking the provided link.

  • Recommended Ball Mount and Hitch Ball for Yakima Rack and Roll Trailer
    The Yakima Rack and Roll Trailer # Y08107 referenced in your question requires a 2 inch hitch ball, such as the Curt # A-90. For optimum performance, Yakima states that the hitch ball should be installed 22 inches above the ground. You will want to choose the ball mount that will give you the proper rise or drop from your trailer hitch to reach this measurement. I recommend looking at the B&W Tow and Stow 2-Ball Mount # BWTS10037B. This ball mount will include the needed 2 inch hitch...

  • Are Bow and Stern Tie Downs Required when Carrying Kayaks on a Yakima Rack and Roll Trailer
    I think the images are coincidences. It is always a good idea to use bow and stern tie downs when transporting something long like a kayak or canoe. It is not necessary in all places but may be required by state or local laws in others. So better safe than sorry! The Yakima Rack and Roll trailers like # Y08107 are excellent for transporting multiple kayaks and it makes loading and loading easy since you won't have to put them on the roof of a vehicle. The trailer also has a higher capacity...

  • Can Yakima Rack And Roll Trailer Carry A 16 Ft Canoe
    I went to our warehouse and took some measurements of the Yakima Rack And Roll Trailer, part # Y08107. I have attached a photo of the trailer with the dimensions shown. From the center of the hitch ball coupler to the center of the front crossbar in its forward most position it measures 83 inches. The crossbars can be spread 48 inches. This would give you 1-1/2 inches of trailer behind the rear crossbar. That means 70 inches of your canoe will hang off the back of the trailer if you...

  • Replacing Wheel Bearings of Yakima Rack and Roll Trailer
    The bearings in the wheels used by the Yakima Rack and Roll trailer are sealed and therefore not serviceable. Unfortunately, Yakima doesn't offer the bearings as a separate replacement item, so you'd need to replace the entire wheel with part # Y08121.

  • Does Yakima Rack and Roll Trailer Require Routine Maintenance and Lubrication
    I spoke with my contact at Yakima to see if there was any routine maintenance needed for the Yakima Rack and Roll Trailer # Y08107. She said that there is no maintenance needed to lubricate the trailer. The axle lubrication at the time of install is a one-time lubrication and is intended to help remove the axle if the trailer ever needs to be dismantled. The Rack and Roll does have 2 bearings per wheel, but they are enclosed bearings. Servicing an enclosed bearing requires a special...

  • Can 78" Crossbars be Used on the 66" Yakima Rack and Roll Trailer # Y08106
    If you are already planning on needing more space than the 66" Yakima Rack and Roll Trailer # Y08106 can provide then I highly recommend going ahead and getting the 78" Rack and Roll # Y08107 instead. The 78" trailer is a whole foot wider than the 66" option so it can better handle the wider loads. If you were to add 78" crossbars to the 66" trailer the bars would stick out past the fenders and you are much more likely to tip the trailer that way. I reached out to my contact at Yakima...

  • Bike Rack Recommendation for Yakima Rack and Roll Trailer
    A very popular bike rack to use with the Rack and Roll trailer like part # Y08107 is the Frontloader part # Y02103 which allows you to keep the front wheel on the bike as your travel.

  • Height from Bottom of Coupler Lip of Yakima Rack and Roll Trailer to Ground When Trailer is Level
    For the Yakima Rack and Roll Trailer part # Y08107 the height from the ground to the top of the inside of the coupler where the ball sits is 22 inches so then from the bottom of the coupler lip to the ground measures 20 inches when the trailer sits level. So if you are looking to pick out a ball mount to use with this trailer you'll want to measure from the ground to the top of the hitch opening and whatever the difference between that dimension is and 20 is the rise/drop you need.

  • Large Cargo Basket Recommendation for a Yakima Rack-n-Roll Trailer
    The fenders of the Rack and Roll trailers like the part # Y08107 would interfere with a cargo basket from mounting directly to the channels of the trailer. For a large cargo basket that would fit the crossbars of the Rack and Roll trailers the Yakima MegaWarrior XL part # Y07080-82 would be your best option. This basket measures 74" long x 48" wide x 6-1/2" tall.

  • Difference in Width Between the Yakima Rack and Roll Trailers, Frame Width and Overall Width
    The frame width of the 66 version of the Rack and roll is 54 inches wide and the frame width of the 78 is 66 inches wide. The overall width of each of the Yakima Rack and Roll Trailers are the exact same width as the length of the crossbars on the trailer. The 66 inch # Y08106 is overall 66 inches long and the 78 part # Y08107 is overall 78 inches wide. What that means is that the frame of the 78 inch model is 8 inches wider than the frame of the 66 inch wide model.

  • 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 Thule Square Load Bars be Used on Yakima Rack and Roll Trailer, Part # Y08107
    My contact at Yakima confirms that the Rack and Roll Trailer, part # Y08107, is compatible with Class I, II and III hitches and since late 2010 comes standard with a 2-inch coupler. Originally the trailer was supplied with a 1-7/8 coupler and a running production change was made to move to the 2-inch. Yakima will supply at no charge a bolt-on 2-inch coupler, part # Y08123, to customers that receive a 1-7/8 unit and need the larger size. However, recent production should have a 2-inch coupler.

  • Can You Submerge The Wheels Of The Yakima Rack And Roll Trailer?
    I reached out to my contact at Yakima and the bearings are not sealed on this trailer. They have a pressed in bearing, but not a water sealed bearing. The trailer comes with a white lithium grease that you use once at install, but then there is no maintenance on those bearings. Yakima does not recommend you back this trailer into the water at all because of their wiring.
