If your vehicle’s out of room, take a look at your hitch. If it’s free, may we suggest the Rack and Roll trailer. Made of lightweight aluminum, it carries gear easily upon shock absorbers that provide a full 4” of independent wheel travel. That means a stable, secure ride for your gear. And it stores easily upright in the off-season.
- Lightweight aluminum construction provides an easy way to carry more gear
- Shock absorbers provide four inches of independent wheel travel, providing trailer stability and protecting your gear
- Stores easily in compact upright position with removable wheels and tongue
- Small wheels on rear of trailer allow you to easily roll the trailer upright for storage
- Carrying capacity is 250 lbs with stock suspension. Optional Heavy-Duty Shocks can carry up to 350 lbs. (compatible with RackandRoll 78” only).
- Carrying handle turns your lightweight trailer rack system into a handcart
- Includes Yakima crossbars. Crossbar spread can be adjusted up to 48 inches.
- LED trailer lights last years without needing replacement
- Standard flat-4 light connector to vehicle
- Works with Class I, II & III hitches when a 2" sized ball is attached
- Comes in two widths: 66” and 78” crossmembers and crossbars
This 78" wide high-performance sport trailer takes style and performance to a whole new level. They’re literally in a class by themselves, and they take the concept of “utility” from drab to fab with the premium aluminum finish and spiffy alloy wheels.

How do I license my trailer with the Department of Motor Vehicles?
Most states require it to be registered, but it registers just like a regular trailer. We provide you with a Mfg. Certificate or Origin and a VIN number. Take those to your Department of Motor Vehicle (DMV) and you will be issued a license plate.
What is the construction material of the RackandRoll Trailer?
All major components are anodized aluminum-6063. The wheels are custom cast and polished aluminum. The wheel and tongue pins are stainless steel. Most of the fasteners are yellow zinc plated steel. The tongue coupler is zinc plated steel.
What is the weight of the empty trailer and what is the load capacity?
The 66" Model weighs 150 lbs empty and has a 250 lb load capacity. The 78" Model is 160 lbs empty and has a 300 lb load capacity.
What is the width and length of the trailer?
The Crossbars of the 66 Trailer™ are 66”wide. The 66" trailer itself is 64” wide from fender to fender outside. The Crossbars of the 78 Trailer™ are 78” wide – the widest roof rack standard. The 78 Trailer itself is 77” wide from fender to fender outside. We do not recommend installing 78” wide Crossbars on the 66" Model for safety and performance reasons.
With the standard tongue, both trailers are eleven feet long. The tongue extension kit adds 3 feet to he length. Note: The tongue can be easily removed for storing the six feet long trailer chassis in an upright position.
What is the best height for installing a ball on my vehicle?
Ideally, the top of the ball should be installed 22” above the ground for a perfectly level tongue and trailer. You can modify the height of your existing Class 1,2, or 3 square female “receiver hitch” with an “offset ball mount” – the bar that holds the ball and inserts in the vehicle “receiver hitch.”
Will I need to purchase the optional Tongue Extension Kit?
The standard tongue typically allows proper clearance for a single 17 ft. boat or two 16 ft. boats. The tongue extension kit makes the standard tongue longer and will allow you to carry up to a single 22 ft. boat or two 21 ft. boats, depending on the vehicle hitch and boat positions.
What size ball do I need for towing?
What type of electrical connection is required?
Standard, Flat-4 type black rubber connection. The tow vehicle’s Flat-4 should have 1 male pin (the exposed ground connection), and 3 covered female connections (live circuits for stop, turn, and running lights). The Trailer’s Flat-4 has 3 male pins and one female - to match the vehicle’s live Flat-4.
How does the trailer perform on the highway?
Beautifully and smoothly. Our RACKandROLL Trailers are DOT-certified for interstate speeds and are regulated by the NHTSA (National Highway Traffic Safety Administration) and the FMVSSA (Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standards Act). The RACKandROLL Trailer features fully independent adjustable suspension with 4” of wheel travel – about twice that of standard trailers. More wheel travel means a greater ability to cushion your precious cargo. The motorcycle shocks are designed for up to 250 and up to 300 pounds of gear, reducing the chance of “going airborne” over bumps, a notorious problem with normal trailers.
With a properly balanced and secured load that does not exceed stated load capacity, you will experience outstanding stability and lack of vibration at highway speeds. One driver recently reported that the Trailer tracked flawlessly when he was forced to take abrupt evasive action at highway speed. As with all towing, drivers should allow for the trailer’s extra length and weight and maintain adequate clearance when changing lanes and be prepared to reduce speed to suit weather and road conditions.
Can the RackandRoll trailer be shipped to my house? How does it ship?
Yes, it will be shipped via our preferred carrier, FedEx Ground. The trailer itself will ship in four separate boxes.
Where can I find out more about a hitch for my vehicles – and trailers in general?
Stay on-line!. www.curt.com is a good place to shop - and to have your hitch installed at one of their locations – including information and products . Make sure you pick a qualified hitch installer and that they understand the amp load that the RACKandROLL Trailer will add to your vehicle’s electrical system – about 9 amps of 12V DC current.
