Will Yakima Rack and Roll Trailer Carry Four Kayaks


Yakima rack and roll 66 inch - Will trailer carry four kayaks.


Expert Reply:

Yes, the 66 inch wide Yakima Rack and Roll Trailer # Y08106 can absolutely carry four kayaks. In fact, if you use cradles - which carries the kayaks on their sides - it can hold up to five kayaks.

The Rack and Roll is the best solution because it makes going on a kayaking trip easy. The trailer it sits low enough to make it simple to load a large number of kayaks as opposed to struggling to get them up and over crossbars on top of your car, which is a particular issue now with the height of some SUVs.

This trailer is also simple to store when you get home from a long day on the water as you can simply stand it up like in the accompanying photo a customer sent in. The Rack and Roll # Y08106 has a 250 lb weight capacity and the coupler will attach to a 2 inch hitch ball.

To carry four kayaks I recommend using either the Thule The Stacker # TH830 which holds four kayaks, you will need extra tie downs with this carrier and a great option is the Yakima Bow/Stern Tie-Down Ropes w/ Ratchets and Strap Loops # Y04031. Please note that this kayak carrier will not work with kayaks that are longer than 10 feet.

If your kayaks are longer than that the best option is to use a pair of the Yakima JayLow Kayak Carrier # Y04073 which comes with enough tie-downs for one kayak, though you can get extra with the aforementioned Yakima Bow/Stern Tie-Down Ropes # Y04031.

I have added links to video reviews of these carriers for you to take a look at as well.
