Yakima Side Loader Mounting Brackets Weight Limit


Will Yakima 1A Raingutter Tower Side Loader Mounting Brackets support a tent and 500 lbs. My ARE topper has a weight limitation of 500 lbs.


Expert Reply:

I contacted Yakima on your behalf who confirmed the overall weight limit for the Side Loader Mounting Brackets for Yakima 1A Raingutter Towers #Y08002 system is 220lbs so the tent and other items or people shouldn't exceed that total limit. That is a dynamic weight limit meaning in motion it should not exceed that weight. At the same time Yakima does not test for what the stationary weight limit would be either.

Another potential option is the Rhino-Rack Pioneer Platform Rack with Backbone Mounting System # JB0892 which has a weight capacity of 264lbs but have confirmed with Rhino-Rack has a static weight capacity of 850lbs.

I hope this helps and have included a video resource for more information.
