    I purchased my 78" Rack and Roll trailer new in 2010. Set the trailer up for 2 kayaks and 4 bikes and have used it frequently over the last six years putting over 14,000 miles on the trailer. Absolutely still the best! No problems with the trailer other than a pinched wiring harness which was my fault. No issues with the tires, still the original ones. Trailer still looks as good now as the day it was purchased. Love the ability to break the trailer down for winter storage and assembly/disassembly is a breeze. It seems everywhere we go with the trailer we are stopped and asked questions about it. I highly recommend it to all that ask.

    Expensive, yes. But quality materials and workmanship. Never-maintain aluminum that looks nice with its Yakima-silver finish. We haul our $2,500 Wenona custom canoe and two Perception kayaks with it. No more hassle of putting everything on top. We can unload and be on the lake in ten minutes from the house. It used to take forty-five, loading, driving, and unloading. More time on the lake, less time with logistics. Buy Y-a-k-i-m-a versus the other brand(s). I have used their products for twenty-five years and am a believer.

    There are many ideas floating around as to how one should extend or expand his or her transportation requirements, and especially as they relate to summer sports. I take a ribbing from friends and family about the time and effort I invest in researching my purchases, but I am rarely disappointed. There is unlikely a smarter investment available than the Rack And Roll trailer, considering its versatility and compatibility. If you already own any rack system, you should would be remiss to ignore this trailer's benefits. The truckers and bikers at rest stops all come over and comment, nodded their approval on the thoughtful design and engineering. That's definitely gotta say something.

    Settle on the size that best suits your needs (regardless of width I heartily recommend the upgraded shocks). Pay close attention to assembly instructions. Be mindful of all notes, and advice put forth by Yakima. Do not submerge in water (especially salt or brackish water), do not use in winter, or don't store outside. And why not collapse it and store upright--couldn't be easier!

    I've used the trailer for almost a year to transport bikes, canoes and various cargo items (including several trips to lumber yards and home improvement centers). The longest trip has been a Brooklyn to Muskoka 1,300+ mile round trip on Interstates and rough side roads. I would definitely agree that a proper hitch ball height is important. Again, follow Yakima's instructions and all will be well.

    Excellent sales, customer service, and everything else that you would expect with such a purchase. Just go ahead and purchase without regret. It's worth every penny!

    Had it for a while. Trouble free. Very easy to maneuver by hand even fully loaded with 4 kayaks (2 single and 2 tandem) loaded. Trailer wiring harness does require to be fused directly to the battery, but with this done have had no problems with electrical system. Overall excellent trailer and highly recommend.

    This is a nice alternative to a dedicated boat trailer. We plan to use this trailer primarily to haul our family canoe (15',aluminum, 3'wide). We are tired of lifting the canoe to the top of our van. This trailer has, so far, has done all that we needed it to do.
    The assembly booklet w/ color photos makes assembly very easy. The components (tires, wheels, hubs, nuts, bolts, etc) seem to be high end products. The trailer itself is aluminum, light but strong. I am not a welder, but it seemed like the welded pieces were clean and consistent in appearance.
    The trailer tongue collapses making the unit smaller. But, to make it the smallest profile, wheel removal is necessary. That process is not hard, but cumbersome and wont likely be done unless critical for storage.
    The trailer is wide enough (78") to carry our canoe and a wide (approx3') car top carrier w/ all of the wet gear inside of it. The rig tracks well and the standard suspension (not heavy duty shocks) absorbs rough roads and big dips well.
    A flat tire is problematic. I did get a flat pulling off of the interstate to adjust a strap. I think it was an unhappy coincidence and not a problem w/ the tire durability. If the trailer is heavily loaded, replacing the flat would require unloading the trailer if you were by yourself as a typical car jack does not lift the trailer easily. The nuts holding the wheel's axle in place is quite large. Your vehicles lug wrench may not be big enough, check that! The tire/ wheel assembly is too small for car shops and too big for bike shops to deal with. A motorcycle shop will likely have the tube/ tire you need to repair/ replace the flat. I am now carrying a can of fix a flat.

    All in all this rig did everything we asked it to. Filling up at the gas station would always prompt curious looks and questions. The flat tire was the only bummer. Long loads need careful attachment. Our canoe would see saw back and forth until we strapped it to the toungue of the trailer. Once we did that it traveled perfectly. Maybe Yakima could consider a fix for this??!
    Great product.

    Everywhere I go - I get lots of of looks & questions. This trailer is functional, unique, and BEAUTIFULLY DESIGNED. Definitely a conversation starter.

    I carry up to 4-kayaks. Later this year I plan to go camping in the Keys and will bring 2 kayaks and 2 bikes.

    We bought a trailer because we were tired of hoisting kayaks to roof of car. I chose this trailer over less expensive galvanized trailers because I use it to double as the way to store the kayaks in my garage, and because it is light weight it is easy to move around by hand. Also the tongue detaches, which I thought I would need in case if too long for my garage. But have not had to remove tongue yet. Fits with room to spare with 12' sot ocean kayaks in my 19' garage.

    I agree with everything from previous post.

    We bought the Rack and Roll trailer 3 years ago and initially were quite pleased with it's performance. However this spring on our first outing of the year we started having strange elecrical problems... whenever I pressed the brakes the panel lights would go out for instance. We pulled over, and found out that the brake lights werent working on the trailer. Also the turn signals sometimes worked and sometimes didn't so we abandoned our trip and spent a few weeks waiting for a new wiring harness. The dealer finally repaired the old harness because the parts were so long in coming. All was well for about 5 months and now we have the same problem. We'll take the trailer in again for repairs but jerry rigging fixes every few months doesn't give me the confidence to take this trailer very far. The wiring system seems to be quite fragile...our usage has been light and the trailer has never been in the water, only used on paved roads, dealer assembled and never dissassembled.

    I had a trailer with my prior kayaks, so another trailer for my 2 new Pro Anglers was a must. The Pro Anglers were a present from my wife, yes I'm that lucky, and she insisted we get another trailer and I agreed. The Rack and Roll is great behind my Volvo XC70 wagon/sand car. The kayaks are easy to load/unload and the trailer tows wonderfully. My only problem has been with the tongue lock. The tongue is designed using telescoping, tubular aluminum which allows for compact storage. There is a lock that secures the tongue in the extended position. Two locks have broken within 3 months of use, and I've resorted to a 3/8" bolt instead. The lock seems very weak for this application, which is a shame since compact storage in a tight garage was a big reason for choosing this trailer. Otherwise I am very pleased with the trailer so far.
