Bike and Cargo Carrier Combinations That Can be Used on the Yakima Rack and Roll Trailer


We carry 2 to 3 bicycles. Also considering a roof-rack type carrier for misc. items, includingn camping gear. Would be very interested if someone has assembled a list of items known to be carried on your Y-8106 trailer - my imagination is lacking here. Thank you.

We have a few different variations of items that will fit together on the Yakima Rack and Roll Trailer, # Y08106. This trailer has a weight capacity of 250 lbs, but will require the Heavy Duty Shocks, # Y08110, if you exceed 200 lbs, and a width of 66 inches.

This trailer can carry a maximum of 6 bikes without any other cargo, so you will want to have at least 11 inches available for each bike. You could mount 3 bikes using roof mounted bike racks like the Yakima ForkLift Bike Carrier, # Y02098, and have 33 inches available for a cargo box like our Yakima SkyBox 12, # Y07334.

If you only mounted two bikes, then you could add a larger cargo carrier like the Yakima LoadWarrior Cargo Basket, # Y07070. You could add even more cargo storage if you wanted to add a roof rack to the top of your vehicle. If you want to send me the year, make and model of your vehicle, then I can recommend a roof rack for you.
