Is Yakima Rack and Roll Trailer Compatible with Blue Sky Angler 360 and Highway Speeds?


Good morning, Regarding the Yakima Rack and Roll Trailer - 66, the description states it can be towed at posted speed limit with proper loading and favorable road conditions. Id be hauling a Blue Sky Angler 360, which is 48W X 134 L with a total weight of 170lbs. With that said, Id also be hauling it on interstates and highways, traveling long distances with posted speeds of up to 75mph. Given that the Angler 360 is the only thing Id need to haul, I love the simplicity and how practical this trailer is. However, are highway speeds of 75mph safe for this trailer? Thank you for your input.

The Yakima Rack and Roll Trailer - 66" # Y08106 is compatible with any posted speed limit so you will be able to travel at 75 mph without issue. The Rack and Roll trailer is one of the best lightweight trailers I've seen. It has a quality craftsmanship and tracking that make it popular with customers.

It is rated for up to 250 lbs, so you won't have any issue carrying your boat. I recommend also getting two sets of the Thule DockGrip Kayak Carrier System with Tie-Downs # TH895 to secure the kayak float on each side of your Blue Sky Angler 360. This will secure your boat to your trailer well for those highway speeds keeping the boat from moving side to side on the rails.
