First trip with the EXO

Just came back from the first trip with the EXO. I didnít expect anything less, but just a report here. It rained all night for the last night and not a drop of water entered the box. On the trip home today we drove through typical Florida down pours and again not a drop in the box.

Sorry I didnít take a picture of all that was in the box but here is a list:
Weber Q1200 with hose and lodge cast iron griddle. Container (sealed) with sewer extension hose, gloves, soap. Container with Dewalt compressor, batteries, and misc tools. Sewer hose support, and black water flush hose.

There was room to spare but we didnít need anything else and didnít see the need to over fill it.

quick question, we have a Thor Sequence, very similar to the Tellaro, and we're looking at the Yakima Exo also. However, I was wondering....with the swing arm in place but the box removed, can you fully open the rear doors? It seems like the pin in the elbow of the swing arm would prevent the door from opening fully. In your picture above, with the swing arm folded up and without cargo box, it seems like the doors would in fact open over the swing arm and the pin. Thanks for any info!

The drivers side door opens fully, the passenger side opens far enough to pull containers out of the storage area. I did pin the strap to stop any damage if I was to open the door to hard. Here is a picture of the door open. lolClick image for larger version

Very nice low-profile carrier. Itís a little small at 10 cubic feet, but the length makes it great for longer items like canopy, bike stand, camping chairs, etc. Lack of outside storage is the biggest drawback for us owning a van camper.

Itís also nice that low profile makes it unnecessary to relocate ProMaster vanís license plate.

My main concern is the 100-pound maximum weight limit, and thatís assuming itís evenly distributed. Unfortunately, most swing arms limit cargo carrying capacity quite a bit, but 100 pounds seems unusually low.

I took some more pictures for you tonight. The locking pin that does get in the way of the door is removable, simply screwed in. I took pictures of the doors open with and without the pin. Iím going to leave it in place as it doesnít stop me from accessing any of the storage.

I had quite a lot in it and was no where near the 100 pound limit. For me itís more of a space problem than a weight problem. As far as the 10 cubic feet, Yakima only measured the lower part of the clam-shell. They say itís only 14.5Ē tall, which is correct for the bottom half of the carrier. My grill is 15.5Ē tall and the top clears it by a few inches.

Thanks for information. Yakima specs show it at 60 long, by 23 wide, by 16 high. I would assume thatís overall outside dimensions.

Iím curious how the plastic box is attached to the two arms. Instructions show box can be removed and arms folded so they donít stick back adding as much length when not in use, but I canít see what keeps box from falling off the two arms. What do knobs at end of arms do?

@OldSheepDog thanks very much, this is very helpful! I really like this system and had wondered if the pin was removable.

Sorry for the delayed response, work is getting in the way of my RV fun. We will be loading the box tomorrow for a weekend trip I will be sure to take pictures. It is very simple to load though. There are two rails on the box that line up with the arms. They slide in and you tighten two knobs.

Hi Ryker (mom) watch you videos all the time. Sorry about the sink, it has me looking at mine. I have had the clips for a long time, used them on a stand up panel board to secure a cooler. Canít remember where I bought them, maybe West Marine, anyway here is a close up picture. They are really quite strong once suctioned on.

Taking a little weekend trip. Took some pics of how the box attached to the rack, and then my load out of the box.

The first pic is my actually load out, the one with the boxes on their sides is just to give an example of how much room/clearance there is. The boxes are the same ones that fit in the rear storage cubby (thank you RDSK).

The other two are of the box and rack system. Once you extend the arms you can see the slots that the rails slide into. The rails on the bottom of the box slide in and then you turn the knobs to lock it all down.
