Video Transcript for Yakima EXO GearWarrior WarriorWheels Cart Kit Review

Hi everyone. It's Evangeline here at etrailer. And today, we are looking at the WarriorWheels Cart Kit for the Yakima EXO System here at etrailer. If you already have the GearWarrior basically, a roof basket for Yakima access system. I highly recommend picking up the WarriorWheels cart kit because this will transform your cargo carrier into a cart. This comes with a large handle which provides maximum control for whenever you're pulling around your cart.

These have all-terrain tires, which are strong sturdy, and they're not rubber tires filled with air. So you don't have to worry about getting a flat. I honestly see this being used more in the parking lot especially, when you take it off of your EXO system and you're bringing it to your campsite, your resort, your hotel, wherever you're going. So let's take a minute to talk about how it feels as we drag it across the surfaces. I do see this being used more in parking lots and concrete, but it also held up really well when it was going over gravel and dirt.

So if your campsite is in and out of the way location, it will still hold up really well. You can see how it does really well with swivels and going side by side; it also does a complete 360 rotation. When you pack up your camp, and you're ready to throw this back onto your system, the wheels themselves come off very quickly. They're also very quickly to install. Let's take a look at that whole process.

Now we're gonna start with the installation of our warrior wheels. Awesome thing about this is you can do this while you have your baskets fully loaded with all your gear and equipment. Also it's ideal to have it installed while it is on the top shelf or on your swing base because then it's in there in position. You're gonna have three parts. You're gonna have your snap around, you're gonna have your knob, and you're gonna have a rear wheel.

So let's install those. This snap arounds basically snap around the corner of your basket. You gonna install all four first before you go to the next step. What I found was the easiest way to do this was to start by putting your knobs through that snap around then, you come up with your warrior wheel. So that's going to wrap around the bar in the basket, and then you will use that knob to secure it and then just tighten that down. Install the other three the exact same way. One thing to know is to make sure that the wheels that can swivel will be together, and they will be their front, but once that's all done, you can then install the handle. The handle has snap arounds as well. So just install those snap arounds around your bars. Now align your snap around to the furthest point, and you can place them and then get your handle and align them inside the snap rounds. If you're gonna have the bolts you took off from the kit and place those through the top, you're gonna get your bolt, and you're just gonna pop it through the handle, so try to make sure it's aligned with both these snap around and the hole on the handle. Once you have the top fully seated, you can then use the knob to tighten down and thread through the bolt on the bottom. Now that you have your handle installed and everything is installed correctly, please make sure of that your ready to take your GearWarrior off and away. So to do so first, unlock the tabs and then release in the speed knobs until they tighten back up again, then you're gonna need another hand to grab one end of the carrier, lift it up, and you're ready to go put it down on the ground. Once you've set your GearWarrior down and is now a cart, and then you can cart it away. And that was the look here at the WarriorWheels Cart Kit for the Yakima EXO System here at etrailer.com..

Review from a similar EXO in Accessories and Parts


Couldn’t love this more, adds all of the extra space needed. Locks integrated throughout make very easy to secure. Love that the cargo boxes can be removed individually, packed and returned to brackets. Two improvements which we would improve, locks are all keyed differently and would be a bit easier for us if they were keyed alike. Also, has a significant wobble once affixed to the hitch. We were able to fix temporarily with shims, and will be ordering a hitch tightener for future use. Not sure if this is a universal issue or specific to our vehicle type.

Great bike rack and cargo carrier. I use it on my camper van and it is very functional and creates a ton of extra storage. Swing away rack works extremely well!

All of the Yakima items I bought from you are awesome!!! They are very good quality and are great to use. I bought the swing arm , the box , the table. I just went camping for first time this year. Everything worked great. Thanks

We use this for extra storage in our class B campervan. I'm able to store all the bulky items that don't fit inside the van like chairs, mats, and our grill. I like that it doesn't block the license plate or taillights and still allows access to the Thule bike rack. The SwingBase allows both doors to open for full access into the rear of the van.

Review from a similar EXO in Accessories and Parts


Thanks etrailer
The unit arrived as projected,,
4 components all well packaged.
The instructions were easily followed and accurate
The quality of the construction was good with clean welds and good coating

One issue was no keys for the pin locks could be located

The design of the attachment is very easy to attach and detachment.

You can see the various coolers utilized, couple reasons
1. Larger coolers can’t be accessed, the smaller size allows for open top
Access, additionally these can be locked with cable thru handle to
Reduce possible theft.

I did find the upper tightening knob to be not as secure, as I felt better,
In putting a thru bolt and lock but in lue of

All in all pleased , we’ll see how it holds up under highway use

Review from a similar EXO in Accessories and Parts


Just finished installing and am extremely happy- it's exactly what I'm hoping for. This takes my van from sad storage to amazing storage where I can still open the door. I'll update if it doesn't stand the test of time, but first impressions are strong.

Review from a similar EXO in Accessories and Parts


Very easy to install. Total installation time (not counting taking photos and opening boxes) was approximately 15 minutes. The only issue I encountered was the left handle on the lower rack had a broken piece inside the locking pin assembly. Other than that, everything was quick and smooth for a single person job. This will greatly assist my business by allowing more room for passenger comfort on long trips to and from airports with a large party. Looking forward to putting this to use.

Review from a similar EXO in Accessories and Parts


I just bought a Yakima cargo box with the exo system. I also got the top section add on with the optional table and or bike rack. This product is very solid and it is everything I thought it would be. My wife and I , love it. Thanks

Review from a similar EXO in Accessories and Parts


Before getting it I wasn't prepared to be overwhelmed by the quality, but to my surprise I was. It's already installed and looks great. I'm now trying to figure out how to also find a way to mount a spare tire using the same hitch
mount above it since my B motorhome doesn't come with one. All in all, I'm very happy.

Review from a similar EXO in Accessories and Parts


Everything fit with no problems. My brother suggested mounting the hitch first to the hanging brackets to bare the weight and then attach to the main frame. Then tighten all bolts to spec. Worked like a charm.

Review from a similar EXO in Accessories and Parts


If you are stuck with a trailer hitch rack only option as I was with my ‘06 Ford Camper Van this is the king and the queen of all trailer hitch racks.
You have two tiers so essentially two racks on one hitch and paired with a “dual hitch receiver adapter” you can still pull your snowmobile and other lighter weight trailers. Don’t over load it check your weight ratings.
You can have a good portion of your recreational life all connected to one hitch.
It is engineered appropriately with ease of use.
The one thing that is mildly annoying is when the container is in the bottom tier I cannot fully open the top. You can access a folding chair or two with out repositioning the rack but larger items involve a two process repositioning to fully open container door. I wish there was a easier and still secure way to move and position the top tier to access the bottom tier when the container is mounted there. ( maybe a upward folding top tier???)
If you had a ski rack in the bottom and container on the top that would work but when summer hits and the bike rack goes on it must be in the top tier and this moving the container to the bottom tier.
Also (amateur tip) if you get the “dual hitch receiver adapter” and you get the extra strong one it ends up being an inch or so taller and thus making the back door inaccessible for the most part. Standard mounting position (aka straight to the vehicle) or lighter rated weight dual receivers will allow the rear doors to be opened when swing away mode is initiated.

Considering this is the most expensive rear hitch rack combo you can buy paired with the last little bit I wrote on rear door access issues, is the only reason I gave this a 4 star rating. This rack was thought out with an in depth cutting edge detail in mind they covered so many new grounds of possibilities of a rear hitch rack.

Thank you! This system is frankly awesome. It is very well made and let's me transport bikes in the truck bed and have covered storage that we can unlock and just carry into the hotel and pre pack in the garage or hotel the days before the trip.

Review from a similar EXO in Accessories and Parts


The Yakima EXO Swing Away and Gear Locker cargo box are great additions to our Class B Van. The only criticism, and it is minor, is that because of the Landed Gear Spare tire mount, it is just a bit difficult to reach and tighten the large “wing nut” when the box is back in travel position. Otherwise, we love it.

Review from a similar EXO in Accessories and Parts


This is a superior product! It is very well-made and really great for extra storage. We have this on the back of our 2022 Ford Transit Campervan and while the right-side door does not fully open with cargo in the box we can get the door opened past the pivot point pin and use it to keep the door propped open. Highly recommend etrailer. They always have items in stock and are very knowledgeable and helpful. Highly recommend ordering this and if you do order it from etrailer. It arrived in two days as well so the shipping, which was free, was very fast.

Heavy duty! Wife and I are planning a road trip and the locking mechanisms that secure this thing in place means I can worry less and keep my mind focused on other aspects of the trip. The metal racks are a great size and feel real sturdy! The swinging arm works perfectly with the hatchback door, I’m excited to get on the road!

Review from a similar EXO in Accessories and Parts


All of the items ordered came quickly. Overall I am very satisfied so far. I say that not having taken the carrier system on the road yet. One disappointment was the locks. I was told that they would be matching. They were not. Also the upper level yoke was slightly dented and would not fit on the post properly. I was able to hammer the dent out well enough so that it fit into place.

Review from a similar EXO in Accessories and Parts


This an excellent item, I with my family has been traveling for many states it's very comfortable as it keeps more room in the car. Love it.

Great product! We use this system for supplemental storage on camping trips with our class C motorhome. Additionally, we have used it for travel baseball tournaments to keep dusty and dirty catchers equipment and bat bags out of the vehicle. Extremely sturdy and easy to use.

This is a solid capable workhorse. It has a big toolbox and a water jug in the basket rack. All my camping is in there. Going now is fast and easy.

  • Recommended Trailer Hitch Receiver 2015 Subaru Forester Carrying Yakima EXO Swing Away Cargo Carrier
    I have a couple receivers you can consider for your 2015 Subaru Forester depending on the look you are wanting to achieve. I recommend the Draw-Tite Max-Frame Trailer Hitch Receiver # 76182 as it is our best looking receiver once installed. It has a hidden cross tube which gives it a factory appearance and will least affect your ground clearance. Installation will be more difficult and the instructions are linked below to determine if this is something you feel comfortable installing yourself....
