Yakima RV and Camper Bike Racks Review - 2020 Toyota RAV4

Evangeline: Hi, it's Evangeline from etrailer.com. And today we are looking at Yakima Long Haul four bike hanging style rack here on our 2020 Toyota RAV4.

So if you also have one of those and you're switching your bike rack between your different vehicles, this is a great option, because it works with all the vehicles.So the way our bike is mounted to our bike rack here is by one, two, three mounting points. So we have two at the top, and this one down here, which is our anti-sway cradle. So you can see as I shake it, how much it really reduces the sway. more

So this is a bike rack, especially since it is designed to behind the RVs, so if you want some versatility and you want a bike rack that works on your RV and can stand that heavy duty road stress, we can also throw it on your truck, this is a great option.So the way our bike is mounted to our bike rack here is by these one, two, three mounting points.

And there's this nice part at the bottom as well to really cradle your bike.Now, this does come with an integrated cable lock, so if you want to use it to secure your bikes, you just pull it out from the back, wrap it around your bikes. more

Hollywood Racks RV Rider 2 Electric Bike Platform Rack Review

AJ: What's up everybody, it's AJ with etrailer.com. Today we're going to be checking out the Hollywood RV Rider. Now this is an updated design, but what it does is it's going to help you carry your e-bike and your fat tire bike on the back of your RV, fifth wheel or even your normal vehicle. So it really works on all three of those, but one of the good things about the update is you used to have to swap out the cradles. So if you wanted to do a fat tire bike, you'd have to use the bigger fat tire cradle or if you're doing a regular mountain bike or road bike, you have to swap out the cradles, which isn't super hard, but you just don't want to do it every time. Now you can see the cradles come to a point, so they're ready for either type of bike so we can put our e-bike in here just fine, fat tire bike, I can take this fat tire bike out, put another regular mountain bike on there, we're good to go. more

Yakima RoadTrip 4 Bike Rack Review - 2015 Thor Miramar Motorhome

Dustin: Hey, internet. It's Dustin here with etrailer.com, and today we're going to be showing you the Yakima RoadTrip on our 2015 Thor Miramar. Now this is an RV-approved bike rack, and the reason you would want that on your Miramar is because the axle sits far enough away from the rear on most RVs, including the Miramar, that you're going to get some sway and wobble back here that you wouldn't on a regular vehicle, and that can transfer to the rack. So on RV-approved bike racks, like the RoadTrip, there are less moving parts, it's more solid, and that's going to make a safer ride for your bikes.Like most hanging-style bike racks, it's going to hold our bikes in place by the top tube. It also features an anti-sway cradle, which is going to prevent any bike movement side to side, preventing bike-to-bike contact and bike-to-RV contact. Your bikes are secured down with the Yakima ZipStrip. more

Hey everybody, today we'll be taking a look at the Yakima LongHaul on our 2015 Thor Miramar.Now, the LongHaul is an RV approved bike rack. That's something you're going to want to look for when adding a bike rack to the rear of your RV. And that's typically because the rear of the RV sits so far away from the axle that there's a significant amount of sway back here. And so RV approved bike racks have less moving components and there's less that can go wrong.Like most hanging style bike racks, it holds our bikes in place by the top tubes, with an anti-sway cradle here on the side. Yakima actually uses what they call zip strips to go in and secure the bike. There's just these levels on the side. more

Speaker 1: Today on our 2015 Jeep Patriot, we'll be doing a review on the Yakama long haul four bike rack, part number Y02476.First, I'd like to start by talking about the physical construction of the bike rack. This bike rack is built a little bit heavier than most, simply because it's built to go on the back of RVs or campers, so there's minimal to no movement on this bike rack.And the next, we'll go on to the zip-strip system that the Yakama has in place. You just simply pull the two tabs, pull up on the zip strip, and it's just as easy to replace.Now here, with the locking cable, you just simply unlock the locking cable, releasing access to all four of your bikes. Take the cable and push it back down into the pillar on the bike rack.Now, to take these off your bike, you start with the top ones. You take these off here, and then you can remove it from the anti-sway cradle on the back side of the upper post on your bike. And you can remove your bike.And I'd like to replace these, before you forget about 'em, they get lost or damaged in your garage or wherever you might be.Now, let's get a few measurements. more

That's part number Y-0-2-4-7-7.Most people don't realize that the rear of their RV is so far away from the rear axle that it causes a lot of movement here at the bike rack end. With no moving parts, the Yakima Road Trip accounts for this making a nice stable ride for our four bikes. Like most hanging style bike racks, it holds our bikes by the top tube and an anti-sway cradle. The anti-sway is going to help cut down on that sway, preventing bike to bike contact and bike to RV contact.It uses zip strips. This is a step up compare to an adjustable rubber strap that may deteriorate over time. more

We have a bike already installed on our rack. Let's take a closer look and show off some of the features.How it actually attaches to the rack, we'll have two points of contact. We're going to have a wheel hook up at the front, which is pretty nice because it doesn't make you buy any extra accessories such as an adaptor bar as you would for a frame mount. Plus, it's a lot easier on your carbon frame bikes as well. It also has an integrated cable lock, which is a new feature for this model that wraps around the frame of the bike and attaches to itself at the front here to deter theft. more

We already have a bike installed on the rack. Let's take a closer look and show off some of the features. How the bike is attached to the rack, we're going to have two points of contact with no frame contact at all.Instead, we'll have a wheel hook up at the front, and this does have an integrated cable lock on it which can wrap around the frame of your bike and prevent theft.And at the rear, we have this wheel strap, which is adjustable, the length of this portion here, to accommodate bikes of different sizes. Like with many platform-style bike racks, this can tilt away from the vehicle with both bikes still attached by coming up to the center here and pulling up and letting it tilt towards you.Now, with two bikes on here, it can be a little bit trying to get to that point, so you may need an extra set of hands to help you do this. With that tilted away, now we have full access to our rear hatch to get what we need, and we do have plenty of space in between the vehicle itself and the bike rack to do so. more
