Will a Single Arm Swagman Trailer Hitch Bike Rack work with a Yakima HitchSki Carrier Part # Y02418


I have a Swagman single arm hitch bike rack. It looks like this ski rack would work with it. The swagman has a 7inch trough clamp system the bike hooks on. Seems the Yakima would fit nicely in these troughs.


Expert Reply:

Since your Swagman rack has a single-arm the Yakima HitchSki snowboard and ski carrier wouldn't work out to well because you need a dual-arm hitch bike rack.

The one you referenced, # Y02418, will work with Yakima hitch mounted, dual-arm style carriers:
BigHorn (4 bike models only)
Double Down (4 and 5 bike models only)
Ridgeback (4 and 5 bike models only)

I added a picture to the right to show you an example of the Yakima HitchSki # Y02418.

If you have factory cross bars on your 2014 Honda Pilot, the Rhino Rack # RR572 can carry 2 pairs of skis.

I included a couple videos for you to look at as well.
