Expert Answers about Toyota Hitch Bike Racks


  • Recommended Lightweight Bike Rack for a 2013 Toyota Prius C and Women's Bikes
  • The Thule Roadway 2 Bike Rack # TH912XTR weighs in just over 30 lbs. If your bikes have smaller frames then you would likely need an adapter bar like the Thule # TH982XT otherwise your bikes will likely sit at a weird angle which not only makes it awkward to load, but it will also reduce ground clearance (see attached with the bar installed). If you can send me some pictures of your bikes I can get a better idea as to if you'd probably need an adapter bar or not. While the Thule Roadway...

  • Can Tilting Feature of Thule Apex XT 4 Bike Rack be Used with Bikes Loaded
  • When using the tilting feature for the Thule Apex XT # TH9025XT you need to first remove the bikes. The only way to keep the bikes loaded so you can gain full rear access to your 2017 Toyota Highlander is to use the Thule Apex Swing XT # TH9027XT. This is the exact same bike rack but it has an arm that swings the upright and arms out to the side of the vehicle as you can see in the attached photo.

  • Can the Swagman XTC4 Bike Rack be Folded Up with No Bikes on a 2014 Toyota Sienna
  • The Swagman XTC4, part # S64665, only has about 3-1/2 inches from the hitch pin hole to the closest part of the rack when it's folded up. When we installed the etrailer hitch you have, part # e98853, on a 2014 Toyota Sienna we measured 4 inches from the pin hole to the outermost point on the bumper. So you won't be able to fold this rack up on your van. We also received a review from a customer with a 2011 who purchased the XTC4 and he cannot fold his up. I recommend taking a look at...

  • Replacement Rear Wheel Assembly for Yakima HoldUp Bike Rack
  • I'm sorry to hear that you were hit by a car (hopefully you're ok!) and we do have exactly what you need, though the arm by itself is not something that is available from Yakima as a replacement part. For your Yakima HoldUp 2-Bike Rack # Y02443 you will need the Replacement Rear Wheel Assembly for Yakima HoldUp Bike Carriers # 8890281. Just in the interest of thoroughness (because front and rear can be confusing on bike racks) I did add a photo showing the difference between the Rear...

  • Can 3 Bikes be Carried with the Thule Helium Pro 3 on a 2012-2013 Toyota Prius with 1-1/4 Receiver
  • The 2-bike rule (which is true) has more to do with the class rating of the trailer hitch than the actually receiver size itself. Since the only 1-1/4" trailer hitches for your 2012-2013 Toyota Prius are rated as Class I then you can only carry 2 bikes with the Thule Helium Pro 3 Bike Rack # TH9043PRO. For the 2" receiver option the only trailer hitch available is the EcoHitch Hidden Trailer Hitch Receive # 306-X7178 which also features a design that hides the crossmember. I recommend...

  • Kuat Sherpa 2.0 Vs. Kuat Transfer 2 For Carbon Fiber Bike Frames
  • I am happy to help you with comparing the Kuat Transfer2 part # TS02G and the Kuat Sherpa 2.0 part # SH22B. Both the Kuat Transfer2 and the Kuat Sherpa 2.0 are great options for carbon fiber bikes because they hold the bikes by the wheels instead of the frame. The biggest differences between these two bike racks are the wheel cradles, design and the locks. The Kuat Sherpa 2.0 2-Bike Platform Rack has folding front-wheel cradles so you can fold them out of the way when you want to fold...

  • Platform Bike Rack Similar to Swagman Current that Has Capacity for Rad Rover E-Bike
  • Swagman actually has a very similar bike rack to the one you referenced that was setup for carrying heavier e-bikes with the E-Spec part # S94FR which has a 70 lb per bike capacity. This is going to be your best option and will work great for you.

  • Is The Inno Aero Light QM 2 Bike Rack E-Bike Compatible?
  • This all depends on what other bike you have on the rack. The total weight capacity of the Inno Aero Light QM 2 # INH330 is 74lbs. If your E-Bike weighs 45lbs without the battery, and your other bike is under 29lbs you will be fine. Just remember to place the E-Bike closest to your vehicle so it puts less strain on the rack. The Inno Aero Light QM 2 isn't the most ideal rack. What you really need is a rack like the Swagman Current 2 # S64678. This bike rack is made for E-Bikes and has...

  • Electra Townie Commute Bike Rack Recommendation
  • Since you have fenders on your Electra Townie Commute the Rola Convoy part # 59308 that you referenced will not be your best solution as the arm of the rack would end up grabbing the fender and wouldn't work well at all. You'd instead need a bike rack that can grab the alternative style of frame your bike has and is compatible with fat tires. For that I recommend the Thule DoubleTrack Pro part # TH9054 as it has the weight capacity you'd need, can fit fat tires, and the frame clamps...

  • Will Swagman XTC-2 Bike Rack Work With Girl's Bike
  • Absolutely! The Swagman XTC-2 # S64670 can easily accommodate children's bikes or women's bikes with alternative frames. You will have no problem sliding the bike hooks to securely grasp the slanted top tube commonly found on girl's bikes, as you can see in the attached photo. For added security and peace of mind, you may want to also pick up Swagman's cable and hitch lock kit # S64031 to lock the rack to your vehicle and your bikes to the rack.

  • Comparing Swagman Chinook S64683 and Thule Doubletrack TH990XT Platform Hitch Bike Racks
  • I am happy to help you make your choice between the two excellent platform bike racks you mentioned, the Swagman Chinook # S64683 and the Thule Doubletrack # TH990XT. Where the Swagman Chinook wins the comparison is in weight capacity (45-lbs per bike vs. 35-lbs for the Thule) and long wheelbase compatibility (up to 50-inches vs. 46-1/2 for the Thule). The Thule weighs about 10-lbs less and is USA-made while the Swagman is heavier and is made offshore. The two carriers are otherwise...

  • Best Hitch Bike Rack Recommendation for 2018 Toyota RAV4
  • For your 2018 Toyota RAV4 with a hitch installed like the etrailer.com hitch part # E98864 installed I really like the Saris Freedom Superclamp bike rack part # SA4025F. This is a lightweight platform bike rack that only touches the bike at the tires and only weighs 30 lbs. The biggest drawback to platform bike racks has always been the weight of them, but with this rack you get the best of both worlds. The preferred attachment style with the lighter weight. Platform bike racks are also...

  • Will the Thule Doubletrack Work with Fat Tire Bikes
  • I do have options for you but the Thule Doubletrack Platform-Style 2 Bike Rack will only fit tires up to 2.5" wide and they do not make a fat tire adapter kit for this rack. Therefore, you can either let some of the air out of the tires and squish them into the wheel trays like you have been or you can upgrade to the Thule DoubleTrack Pro 2 Bike Platform Rack part # TH9054 which accepts bikes with tires up to 5" wide. You could always sell the original Doubletrack to offset some of the...

  • Trailer Hitch for 2019 Toyota Corolla Hatchback to Carry Bike Rack
  • There is absolutely a trailer hitch that fits your 2019 Toyota Corolla hatchback, the Curt Trailer Hitch # C11567. This is a Class I hitch with a 1-1/4" receiver so it will work perfectly with your Kuat Beta 2-Bike Rack # B202-114, which is rated for use with Class I hitches. Just keep in mind that Curt, the hitch manufacturer, does require you use Stabilizing Strap for Hitch-Mounted Accessories # 18050 with all accessories in order to maintain the lifetime warranty on the hitch.

  • Bike Rack For E-Bike With Fenders
  • I have a few options for you when it comes to carrying your Rook Bike with Fenders. The Swagman Current # S64678 is a great cost effective electric bike rack that has a frame mount design. Since your bike has fenders it is best to use a frame mount design bike rack. This rack fits 1-1/4" and 2" hitches so it will fit the hitch on your 2019 Toyota RAV4. I am a big fan of Swagman's racks because they pack a lot of features into a friendlier price. The Hollywood Racks Sport Rider SE #...

  • Bike Rack for Two 60 lb E-bikes for 2009 Toyota Rav4
  • I have two great options for you. The first is the Swagman E-Spec Electric Bike Rack # S94FR. It's super heavy-duty and has a weight capacity of 70lbs per bike. If you fold down the arm and take your bikes off, there is enough clearance to access and open the hatch of your Rav4. This rack is amazing for rugged, heavy duty riding. This rack just makes me feel secure that my heavy E-bikes are held up well. I attached a video below so you can see it in action on a 2020 Toyota Rav4. The...

  • Can the Swagman XTC4 be Tilted with Bikes Loaded for Rear Hatch Clearance
  • We do have 4-Bike bike racks that have the tilting feature that allows you to keep your bikes loaded but unfortunately you have to remove the bikes off of the Swagman XTC4 # S64665 in order to rotate the center mast down to gain rear hatch clearance. For a similar bike rack that uses arms to secure the bikes and comes with bike and rack locks I recommend the Hollywood Racks Sport Rider SE # HR1400Z which does allow you to keep your bikes loaded while you use the tilt feature.

  • Correct Trailer Hitch for a 2019 Toyota Corolla
  • There are two Draw-Tite Sportframe Trailer Hitch Receivers for a 2019 Toyota Corolla, part # 24913 for sedan models and part # DR94FR for hatchback models. It looks like you entered "2019 Toyota Corolla" into our fit guide instead of "2019 Toyota Corolla Hatchback" which is likely where the confusion lies. That said, they are both bolt-on no-drill options so there should be no worries here. If you are looking to use a hitch mounted bike rack, the Kuat Beta - Folding 2 Bike Aluminum Rack...

  • Comparing the Weight of the Swagman Chinook Bike Rack and the Swagman XTC2
  • These are two good choices! The Swagman XTC 2 # S64670 weighs in at roughly 32-lbs and the Chinook # S64683 weighs about 47-lbs, so if you're looking for the lightest weight rack it's definitely going to be the XTC 2. However, if you're not concerned with the weight difference, the Chinook would be my recommendation since it tilts away from the vehicle to allow you access to the rear cargo area with the bikes still loaded on the rack. I'll also mention that both of these bike racks...

  • Replacement Straps for Swagman XTC Bike Rack S64671
  • We do have replacement straps for the Swagman XTC bike racks like the part # S64671 with the part # P308. This is a more economically priced bike rack and one of the sacrifices that ends up getting made on the lower priced racks is overall stability and movement. The clearances just aren't as tight and the rack will more more. The bike rack that is most similar in design and price that is very solid is the Hollywood Racks Trail Rider # HR200Z which is what I normally recommend for people.

  • Trailer Hitch Recommendation for 2018 Toyota Sienna to Carry Thule Bike Rack

  • Best eBike Rack For Class I 1-1/4 Hitches
  • You're in luck! There's no need for a 2" hitch if you want to carry two ebikes! I really like the Thule EasyFold XT 2 E-Bike Platform Rack # TH903202 for ebikes because it makes loading and unloading ebikes easier. It works with both a 1-1/4" and 2" hitch, has a capacity of 65lbs per bike and comes with a ramp to help load your heavy bikes. This bike rack is one of the few that we carry that is usable with a class 1 hitch. The only hitch we have for your 2020 Toyota Corolla is a class 1...

  • Bike Rack Recommendation for 70 lb E-Bike

A high-quality option is the Swagman E-Spec 2-Electric Bike Platform Rack - 2" Hitches # S94FR which has a 70 lb per bike capacity, has a hitch lock to secure the rack to your hitch and ratcheting hooks which are also locking to help secure your e-bike to the...

  • Availability of 2 Inch Trailer Hitch for 2014 Toyota Prius
  • The Hollywood Racks Sport Rider SE 2-Electric Bike Platform Rack # HLY84FR referenced in your question is compatible with 2 inch trailer hitch receivers, which is what you would need to add to your Prius in order to use the rack. The only 2 inch hitch available for your 2014 Toyota Prius is the EcoHitch Hidden Trailer Hitch # 306-X7178. This particular hitch has a really nice hidden design and a 300 pound tongue weight capacity. It will use existing holes in the vehicle's frame for...

  • Swagman Current 2 vs XTC2 Bike Rack on Toyota Sienna
  • We do have several Tilt-Away bike rack options for you to hook up to your hitch. The platform racks will be the best bet, especially when dealing with the frame on a women-style bike. The two Swagman models you referenced are great choices for this. The XTC2, part # S64671, is the more affordable option. It has the Tilt-Away feature you are looking for and can handle the styles of bikes you mentioned. It can fit both a 1-1/4 inch and a 2 inch hitch receiver, so yours will be able to...

  • Why Won't Replacement 1-1/4" Tongue # 8880581 Fit in 1-1/4" Receiver
  • If you currently have the Yakima HoldUp # Y02443 for 2" receivers then it is for some Class II but mostly Class III receivers. However, since you installed the Replacement 1-1/4" Tongue # 8880581 this essentially made it part # Y02445 which is compatible with 1-1/4" receivers as long as they don't have a weld stop like some Class I receivers have (see attached photo). If the problem is that you can't get the shank of the bike rack to even start in the receiver then I would measure the...

This rack comes with stabilization straps as well as a cable lock for the bikes and a locking pin for the hitch. Locks are keyed alike. Keep in mind the rack with bikes loaded has a 150 lb weight capacity so you want to make sure you don't exceed the weight capacity of the rack or the hitch receivers maximum tongue weight. As...

This is a well built wheel mount bike rack which means no frame contact on your bikes. Compared to a frame mount or hanging design it can more easily accommodate women's, kids and alternative style frames.

  • Recommended Platform Style Rack for Carrying 4 Bikes With Toyota Sienna

No worries, though. We have the perfect bike rack that'll work just fine for you. I can highly recommend the # HR1400Z-FB SportRider SE. The rack can handle 4 fat bikes weighing up to 50 lbs apiece, which is an excellent capacity. Hollywood Racks makes an extremely durable bike rack, and...

Hitch pin location is key, but your Highlander won't have any issue with most bike racks because the hitch pin hole is not extremely far back from the outer bumper. My recommendation for you is the Swagman XTC4 4-Bike Rack for 2" Hitches - Platform Style...

Because your bike has fenders the wheel hooks won't be able to grab the wheel and the ratcheting hook won't hold the bike firmly without bending your fender. The weight capacity of 60 lbs is also an issue. A better option for you is the Hollywood Racks Sport Rider SE 2 Electric Bike Rack # HLY84FR which is rated for up to 80 lbs per bike. This...

One of the many great things about this rack is that it fits both hitch the 2 inch and 1-1/4 inch hitch sizes. So it could fit the 1-1/4 inch Draw Tite hitch part # 24847 that fits your Prius or if you wanted a 2 inch hitch we also have the EcoHitch # 306-X7178 that is a fit as well.

This is a 2-bike rack that weighs just 30 lbs and is a frame-mounted rack so it will work with your hybrid bike that has fenders.

It's unlikely that it will allow you load the bikes and still tilt away enough to open the tailgate,...

  • When folded up, the Hollywood Racks Destination 2 # HLY94FR will not block the reverse lights on a 2020 Toyota Rav4. I can presume it would be the same deal with your 2018 Toyota Rav4. I've included the install video of the 2020 Rav 4 to show you some more features along with a picture of the rack folded up.

  • Comparing the Lets Go Aero BikeWing T4 and Hollywood Racks Sport Rider SE 4
  • The Lets Go Aero BikeWing T4 part # B01458 and Hollywood Racks Sport Rider SE 4 part # HR1400Z are both excellent options for your 2008 Toyota Highlander. The biggest difference I would like to point out right off the bat is weight, the BikeWing is much lighter at 41 lbs compared to the Sport Rider at 81 lbs. However, you can remove the bike rack in two pieces with either option to make things lighter but the the BikeWing will still have the edge. In regards to compatibility with step-though...

  • Can RockyMounts SplitRail fit 2019 Toyota Highlander and Compare to Yakima FourTimer
  • As long as you have a 2 inch hitch installed on your 2019 Toyota Highlander Hybrid like the Draw Tite part # 76156 the RockyMounts SplitRail LS # RKY11404-4 would fit and work well. You can use a bathroom scale to weigh your bikes as one way to determine it's weight. This rack only touches the bike tires when securing to the rack whereas the Yakima Fourtimer part # Y02469 instead grabs the bikes by the frames. Both of these racks include locks for the bikes to the rack as well as for...

In my experience that will be more than enough to work on any vehicle while still clearing the rear bumper or hatch. The XTC-2 Tilt is a great rack with great reviews. It is built off of the extremely popular XTC-2 which is know for great cost effectiveness, durability and ease of use. They just added a tilting function to it to allow for...

  • I do have an option for you, however, there isn't a hitch mounted bike rack out there that is guaranteed not to interfere with the back up camera and parking sensors on your 2019 Toyota Tundra. Your best option is to go with a truck bed bike rack like the Thule Insta-Gater Pro # TH93VR. This rack requires no drilling or bolting for installation. It uses your tailgate opening to secure the rack to your truck bed so it's compatible whether you have a cargo management system on the truck...

First, is the Yakima BackSwing Swing Away Hitch Extender for Bike Racks - 2" Hitches # Y02483. This is compatible with any bike rack that has a 2" hitch, including the Yakima BackRoad # YA64FR you mentioned....

  • Platform Bike Rack for 2 Bikes and a 2012 Toyota RAV4
  • For your needs the Saris Freedom # SA4412B is going to be the best option. I think you will really like this rack. First, it is very light weight at just 22-1/2 pounds. That makes it easy to install/remove from the trailer hitch. It can fit 1-1/4 inch (Class II) and 2 inch trailer hitches. It can be locked but you would need to add locking hitch pin # SA3022, sold separately. You will not need an adapter bar for the woman's bike frame. It measures 12 inches from the center of the hitch...

This bike rack comes with bike and rack locks and when it is folded it sits about 6" away from the center of the hitch pin hole to the closest part of the bike rack. Since your wife's bike has a step-through frame that sits 16" off of the ground though you will need to use an adapter bar like part # UB01 for it to secure the bike. The...

  • Comparing Thule Doubletrack Bike Racks # TH990XT and # TH9054

The main reason is that the Pro is more versatile because of its rotating and vertical sliding bike frame clamps. It also has an improved tilting mechanism so it is easier to use in that regard as well. The older XT style is a really solid bike rack, but the Pro is an improvement overall so it's what I would personally get. Especially if you plan to carry any womens bikes that have low or swooping...

  • When the Curt 4 bike rack part # C18087 is folded up it has a distance of 4-1/4 inches from the center of it's hitch pin hole to the nearest portion of the rack. When we installed your Draw Tite hitch part # 75237 on a 2008 Toyota Sienna we found there was a distance of 4-1/2 inches from the pin hole to the outer most portion of the bumper which means this rack would be short about 1/4 of an inch from fitting folded up.

This rack has a proven track record of successful use on front hitches while the # S64663 is really intended for RV bumper use. The XTC2 is a very popular bike rack we offer, highly rated by our customers and is easy to use. Because the rack has an angled shank it provides three inches of additional ground clearance.

I really think RockyMounts makes a solid rack at a great price, so the Monorail 2 # RKY10003 is a good choice; additionally, it comes with both a hitch lock and locks for the bikes, so you're getting added protection for your investments. You don't get locks for the bikes included...

  • How Does Hitch Pin Hole of Yakima SingleSpeed Bike Rack Line Up

I also attached a picture of what it would look like as well. You could put some bright fingernail polish around the pin hole to help see it.

It fits both hitch sizes but whenever possible a 2 inch hitch is the way to go like the Draw Tite part # 76134 that fits your vehicle. 2 inch hitches have higher weight capacities and since they are the most popular hitch size they have the most accessories made for them.

  • Will the Inno Tire Hold 2 Bike Platform Rack Work On Bikes with Fenders
  • The Inno Tire Hold 2 Bike Platform Rack part # INH120 is a wheel mount bike rack and wheel mount bike racks cannot be used on bikes with fenders. Therefore, you will need to use a different bike rack. I recommend the Inno Aero Light QM 2 Bike Platform Rack part # INH330 which is a frame mount bike rack therefore there won't be any issues with bikes that have fenders. The Inno Aero Light QM 2 is also super lightweight at only 30 lbs so it's easy to get on and off the vehicle.

The clamp squeezes the frame of the bike instead of just pulls down on the frame so it's more secure.
