As always E trailer handled my order extremely well. Kept me updated on shipping also. Very professional!

1994 BMW 5 Series

roof racks showed up in great condition, and showed up as one package.... I should have ordered the J racks from here but I found them cheaper locally so Thule J racks compliment the whole setup and i am just about ready to hit the water :)


Thank again, etrailer. You always have what I’m looking for. I already had the bars, but I needed the towers.

2017 Chevrolet Express Van

etrailer never disappoints! Every product I need, I check that etrailer has it before purchasing anywhere else. Thank you for the excellent service, the fast delivery, and the email updates on order status.


Fit the 79 Dodge van perfectly


Fits awesome on my 2016 jeep unlimited. Some wind noise but not a problem.

Still in love with it


These Yakima towers just work. They go on easily and stay tight. No issues whatsoever. They are a little pricey, but it's nice to have something that just works well without any drama.


I received the Rain gutter riser, 66' round bars, boat loader and SKS lock cores all well packaged and in good shape. These are for a 2020 Jeep Wrangler JLU Rubicon. The products were easy to install and will work great for loading and transporting my Hobie Outfitter Kayak. The Outfitter is a heavy kayak at 75 lbs unloaded. The Yakama Boat loader makes it easy for one person to load and unload the kayak. The rain gutter mounts and round bars securely hold the kayak for transportation. When not transporting the kayak the whole system quickly removes.
A big plus with ordering through etrailer is the excellent custom service, they will be my go to for future orders.

GMC Terrain

I chose the Yakima A1 raingutter towers for mounting a 96" Yakima crossbar for my Humvee wildfire rig rooftop gear rack. The towers are sturdy and able to handle the constant jarring expected in wild land fire fighting in rugged terrain.


Awesome Company!
In the time of COVID
doing business with this company was a great experience. I was kept informed by email by their CSR team as to when they would ship product and when it would arrive. Worked like a champ. Product fit my 1974 VW Baja as promised and now I can finally add the much needed Roof Rack System.
Thanks etrailer for being there and taking such care of your customers.


Yakima rack arrived a day earlier than expected. All the parts were there instructions were clear took about half hour to install. The rack is a little noisy at highway speed. Darn, guess I'll have to take the back roads! Thumbs up to both etrailer and Yakima.


I have used Yakima products for decades and never have had issues. Even now I still trust them thus still purchase their products. This was for a gift so spreading the product name and trust.


These shipped very quickly and fit great. While I couldn’t get the bars I wanted until August, I was able to get them elsewhere. Thanks for your help. Would have been 5 starts had I been able to get everything from etrailer


Did an excellent job guys. The Yakima towers arrived on time and in good shape. Mounted right up to the canopy clips, installed the existing bars, kayak racks, and lock cores without any issues. All is ship-shape now. Will definitely come back to you guys again.


2014 Ford Van

The customer service is exceptional. Nick went above and beyond getting the package out as well as dedicated follow-up. I will be ordering another roof rack for another vehicle. Even the return process was seamless thanks to Shelia. I ordered a tow hitch wiring harness a few months ago and received the same great service. Will continue to do business with etrailer.


Amazing customer service!! Had a small issue with shipping to start but after a phone call Noah took care of it right away. Received product just in time for our trip and will be a repeat customer for sure. Thanks so much George, Noah and Carol. Can’t say enough how much I appreciate you.


Got just what I ordered, quickly. Yakima rack system. For 2008 van, now I need to order one more set.

Pontiac Trans Sport Van

I had a set of these years ago and needed a roof rack to transport a 12’ ladder. It took awhile to get the order fulfilled but that was mfg supply problems. The follow up was top notch and they arrived earlier than anticipated.


Everything was delivered on time and as promised which is not always the case these days!


Have owned this set of rack towers on the past 3 pickup trucks I've owned..!! Work very well...!!! I am a contractor and occasionally load them up pretty heavily....!


Love our roof rack, thankful you were able to get the last item we needed to finish our project.


Fit and has done everything I’ve needed them to do. Good quality and I know that they will last many more years. Good job guys!!!


While these are a little pricey, the quality was very good and the install simple and easy. The rails appear to be sturdy. Won't know until I use them for a few months.


This gutter clamp Rack system is the best I’ve ever seen it works Great, easy to install.

1997 Lexus LX 450

Rain gutter fits great and very secure.

  • Do the Yakima Side Loader Mounting Brackets Have a Weight Capacity Rating
    The capacity of the Side Loader Mounting Brackets # Y08002 is going to be limited to the bar capacity or roof capacity, whichever is lower. In general, the raingutter feet, # Y00101, and crossbars will have a 165 pound capacity. You will need to consult the vehicle owners manual or manufacturer of the vehicle or item you are installing this on to determine the capacity of it. Always go by the lowest capacity.

  • Artificial Rain Gutter Recommendation for a Trailer to Allow a Yakima Rain Gutter Roof Rack to Fit
    Since you have Yakima Rain Gutters towers like part # Y00101 all you would need is their set of artificial rain gutters part # Y08001 to install the roof rack you have on your trailer. We do not offer a way to attach your Yakima components directly to a square bar setup that you may have.

  • Roof Rack System for 2008 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited with Factory Hardtop
    According to Yakima, the drip rails on that factory hard top are not structural. When used in this installation, the crossbars are intended for use with skis or snowboards only. The maximum allowable load would be 6 skis or 4 snowboards. When used within this limited scope, the drip rail mounts will not damage the rain gutter or drip rail. If used for any other purpose, they would most likely be damaged. If you decide to install the Y00101 Raingutter Towers and 58 inch load bars, keep...

  • Yakima Roof Rack Recommendation for a 2014 Wrangler Unlimited
    For your 2014 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited Yakima recommends the use of their Yakima 1A Raingutter Towers # Y00101. There is no way to install a Q-tower setup on your vehicle. You still will be able to use your round crossbars if you happen to have them still and they are at least 58 inches long like the part # Y00409.

  • Recommended Roof Rack for 2006 Dodge Sprinter
    Yes, we do offer roof rack options for a 2006 Dodge Sprinter which mount to the rain gutter channels. I recommend the Yakima Rain Gutter Round Bar System which consists of part # Y00101 and part # Y00410. These crossbars will allow you to use all sorts of rooftop mounted accessories. They are made of galvanized steel so they are both strong and long lasting. I have linked our watersport carrier selection below for you as well.

  • Non-Roof Rack Towers for a 2016 Jeep Wrangler
    For your possible application, I recommend a set of Yakima A1 Raingutters, part # Y00101. These are a confirmed fit for your 2016 Jeep Wrangler, and have individual loops on the top that can be tightened to fit your application. Unfortunately, these only come in a four pack, but depending on what you plan on using them for, this can be useful as additional contact points. I recommend a kit of SKS locks, part # Y07204, as these use a simple screw-on assembly and the locks will secure...

  • Yakima 1A Raingutter Tower Fit On A 1995 Ford F-150
    The Yakima 1A Raingutter Towers (QTY 4) # Y00101 will fit your 1995 Ford F-150 per our own fitguide but I also referenced Yakima's assuming your F-150 was standard cab and long cab. The # Y8810137 is a single tower replacement and will also work great for you if you need less than the full set.

  • How to Align Rain Gutter Towers on Roof of 2014 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited
    Your roof capacity is going to be limited by what Jeep lists as the roof capacity in the owners manual. Aftermarket racks will have much higher capacities than what a Wrangler will have. For the rain gutters part # Y00101 Yakima recommends having them set vertical on the roof of your vehicle.

  • What Prevents the Knobs on the Yakima 1A Raingutter Towers From Coming Loose
    Essentially, the tension that the towers # Y00101 are under are what prevents them from loosening. To prevent the knob from turning you can install lock cores, # Y07204. When locked the knob the system cannot be loosened.

  • Recommended Spacing Between Yakima Rain Gutter Towers on 1998 Jeep Cherokee
    When mounting rain gutter towers, # Y00101, there is no specific distance apart they must be placed. What you will want to look at is where you can mount them (the strongest points on the roof would be ideal) and how far apart you need them to mount various items like bike racks, canoes, kayaks, cargo boxes, baskets or any other accessory. Just remember that if you place the bars too far back then items on the roof may hang over the back end too much. Same for the front. In addition to...

  • Yakima Roof Rack Recommendation for a 2012 Ford E-350
    The benefit to going with a longer crossbar on a roof rack is that you get more room for roof mounted accessories. The longer crossbars can sometimes mean that you will need to watch your head getting into and out of your vehicle though. Also, you don't want the bars extending beyond the mirrors. The recommended Yakima Roof Rack for your 2012 Ford E-350 consists of 66 inch crossbars # Y00410 and Gutter Feet part # Y00101. For 78 inch crossbars to use instead you would want the # Y00411.

To order a complete system you will need 1 set (qty 2) 58 inch round crossbar # Y00409 and 1 set (qty 4) raingutter towers # Y00101. Please be advised that since drip rails/raingutters are not structural the maximum allowable load is skis or snowboards only.

  • How Do I Install the Replacement Clip for Yakima 1A Raingutter Tower # Y43FR?
    As far as the directions, Yakima only has instructions about how to mount the A1 Raingutters # Y00101 to the roof of your vehicle. I went ahead and attached those instructions for your convenience. Although, in order to install the replacement clip # Y43FR, you simply place the clip into place and then install the included rivet. Then, you attach the cap nut. I also attached a diagram that points to where this rivet/nut is located.

  • Weight Capacity of Yakima Raingutter Mounted Roof Rack on 2012 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited
    Per Yakima, a roof rack installed on the Wrangler Unlimited with the # Y00101 Drip Rail Towers will be limited to carrying snow products like ski and snowboard carriers. This is due to the limited capacity of the drip rails and the maximum bar spread of 24 inches. Yakima mentions a maximum allowable weight load of 100 lbs, including the weight of the rack itself.

  • Will Yakima Round 48 Inch Crossbars # Y00408 Fit My 1997 Toyota Corolla

You will want to check the roof load carrying capacity of your Corolla as stated in the vehicle owners manual as you will not want to exceed it.

  • Why Aren't Rubber Boots Included for the Outside Raingutters with Yakima Raingutter Towers
    I assume you are talking about the hook part of the gutter feet. A rubber boot would cause fit issues with the Yakima Raingutter towers # Y00101. Rubber or plastic can flex and move which could lead to the clamp part of the tower to come off. The hooks are coated so as to avoid metal on metal contact. If you want you could place protective clear film, # 853-5481, in the desired locations. This is a set of 4 film sections so that works out well since there are 4 towers. But you may need...

The replacement plastic clip spacers aren't available individually, they are included in the # Y8810136 replacement hardware bag, so potentially you could need both the # Y8810136 parts bag as well as the # Y8810008 replacement boots.
