Re: how to carry the x on a minivan
- Thought I had replied to this earlier but didn't see it show up, if it
does twice, my apologies :)
I just bought a fold up utility trailer to haul my super long x's.
Not close to finished, but I loaded up some bikes on it here just to
give an idea. Trailer cost was $240 on sale a local hardware shop.
1200 lb max payload.
I'll have some better photos and shot of it folded up as well soon at
It's a pretty handy little unit....

- The Yakima Raptor appears to be the replacement for the LockJaw units
we have. I don't know about a long-enough tray for the X, but the
LockJaw worked well for us in the past.
hope this helps.
