Does Trailer Hitch Install Require Drilling on 2015 Nissan Altima/Trunk Bike Carrier for 2015 Altima


Do you have a hitch that doesnt require welding or drilling. I will only be using this for two bikes.

All of the trailer hitches for your 2015 Nissan Altima require drilling for installation though none of them require welding. If drilling is a deal breaker there is another option. You could use a trunk mounted carrier.

The Thule Passage # TH910XT is a good entry level bike carrier which includes anti-sway cradles to keep the bikes from hitting each other or the back of the vehicle. I have linked a video review of this carrier for you.

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.
