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 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.

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 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:

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.

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.

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.



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.

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



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:

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:

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:

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



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:

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



by:

etrailer staff was great to work with. They were responsive, knowledgeable and more than met all their commitments. The trailer is unlike anything I've seen before. Independent suspension and design reminds me more of a motorcycle than a trailer. It's easy to assemble, built like a tank, especially when you consider it's only hauling a few hundred pounds. Quiet pull and backs great for a relatively short trailer.



by:

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.



by:

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?



by:

I have had great service from your company for the three times I have bought and returned items...



by:

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.



by:

Rack and Roll is exactly what was advertised. Easy to assembly , looks great

This trailer performs much better than it's size would suggest. Love it

  • What Is Height Of Rack And Roll Trailer When Wheels Are Removed For Storage
    I assume you are asking about the height of the trailer with wheels removed when storing the Yakima Rack and Roll Trailer, part # Y08107. I took a couple measurements of the trailer for you. The arm that holds the shock can be swiveled up when the wheel is removed and the distance from the bottom of that bracket to the top of the crossbars is 8-3/4 inches. The distance from the bottom of the channel that the tongue is inserted into to the top of the crossbars measures 10-1/4 inches. I...

    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.

  • Can Yakima Rock and Roll Trailer Y08107 Be Stored Outside?
    There is no problem with storing the Yakima Rack and Roll Trailer - 78" # Y08107 outside as it is made out of aluminum so it is corrosion resistant. A cover is not required, and at this time Yakima does not make a cover for the trailer. If you want a cover your best bet would be a tarp that is at least 7' x 12' long. I included a video of the # Y08107 for you to take a look at.

  • Can Yakima Rack and Roll Trailer be Backed Into Water
    Yakima does not recommend backing their Rack and Roll trailers like the # Y08107 you mentioned into water as the bearings aren't sealed and neither are the electrical connections. Your best option would be to back it right up to the waters edge and then lift the boat in and out of the water. With a helper this wouldn't be too difficult.

  • 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.

  • 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...

  • Will Yakima Rack And Roll Trailer Need an Inspection in the State Of Texas
    If registering or titling a new trailer in Texas requires a state inspection, then you will want to complete that as well. You can check with your local DOT to find out if registration requires a state inspection. According to my contact at Yakima, the Rack And Roll Trailer # Y08107, in the state of Texas, will need: to be registered, title MSO (no special requirements), your receipt, 130U form, and there will most likely be a fee.

  • Should Tongue Extension Be Removed for Storage of Yakima Rack and Roll Trailer
    You can leave the tongue extension on when storing the Yakima Rack and Roll Trailer - 78" # Y08107. More than likely you will want to remove it for the sake of space. With the extension attached it is going to be 11' long so you would need a high ceiling to accommodate this. When you remove the extension that is reduced to 6' which is by far more manageable.

    You could use a hitch extender or a longer ball mount with the Yakima Rack'n'Roll trailer # Y08107. However there are a couple of issues. First, a hitch extender will reduce the tongue weight capacity of the hitch by 50 percent. this may not be an issue though considering the trailer is rated for just 250 pounds.
