Bike Rack and Paddleboard Carrier Recommendation for Yakima Rack and Roll Trailer


I would like to carry 3 bikes and a SUP on the rack and roll. Here are my questions: 1. I am assuming I will need the 78inch and not the 66. 2. What bike attachments would I need? Will I be able to look the? 3. Could I mount the SUP sideways like a kayak? If so what attachment would i use? 4. if I cannot mount the SUP on its side what attachment would I need? 5. Can I also lock the SUP? Thanks for the help!

For what you plan on carrying you would need the wider Yakima Rack and Roll part # Y08107 that you referenced. All of the SUP carriers we offer are designed to carry the board flat on the bars so that would be the route needed to go for carrying one. For that you would want the Yakima SUPDawg part # Y04075 which will fit the bars of the Rack and Roll well.

A very popular bike rack to use with the Rack and Roll is the Frontloader part # Y02103 which allows you to keep the front wheel on the trailer.

Both the bike rack and paddleboard carrier come with locks as well. They will lock the carrier to the crossbar and then the bike/paddleboard to the rack.
