Distance of Yakima Exo System Swing Away Hitch Extender From Receiver Pin to Back When Folded Flat

Question:

Im trying to figure out if I can fit my SUV in the garage with the Exo base attached in its completely folded position. Im trying to figure out the distance from the receiver pin hole to the outer edge of the folded arms. Ive looked at the drawings youve attached to the prior questions, but none seem to have that measurement and the numbers are really small and hard to read. It looks like the total length of the unit from the edge of the hitch tube to the outer edge of the folded arms is 18.7inch not sure if Im reading that number correctly. Interpolating from another dimension distance form the edge of the receiver tube to the edge of the extended arms and pin hole to edge of the extended arms 37inch vs 34 appears to be 3. If that is correct, then the distance from the from the pin hole to the outer edge of the folded arms appears to be 15.7. Is that something you can confirm?

Helpful Expert Reply:

The Yakima Exo System Swing Away Hitch Extender # Y82VR is 15.7" long from the hitch pin center hole to the rear edge of the system when the arms are folded in.

I have linked our review video below that also confirms as the measurement being about 16" in the video.
