Will the Yakima DoubleDown Bike Rack Fit a 2011 Honda Pilot


Will the Yakima DoubleDown 4 Bike Rack fit a 2011 Honda Pilot hitch? Is this rack fairly easy to put together? I love this rack!

Well, I didn't want to say anything, but the Yakima DoubleDown bike rack, # Y02424, loves you too! It is basically ready to go right out of the box. You would just need some regular hand tools (crescent wrench) to put it together and even that only involves attach the part that fits into the hitch receiver to the up right mast part that holds the bikes.

The rack will fit your 2011 Honda Pilot. The trailer hitch on the Pilot is close to being flush with the rear bumper so there will be plenty of clearance.

If you will be carrying any bikes that do not have a top frame bar that goes straight across (like a typical men's bike would) then I recommend using bike adapter bar # 64005. This will allow you to carry those bikes more level and will provide better ground clearance. I have to use these adapters and without them my wife's bike would be at a severe angle and I would not be able to load my son's bike at all. I have linked a video showing how the adapter works.
