Trailer Hitch Mount Bike Carrier that Allows Rear Hatch to Open on 2015 Nissan Rogue

I will be happy to help you. First, if your 2015 Nissan Rogue does not already have a trailer hitch you will need one. I recommend Draw-Tite trailer hitch # 75902. This is a Class III trailer hitch with a 2 inch receiver. This is what you will need for the type of bike carrier you are looking for. I have linked a video showing how the hitch installs.

For a bike carrier that will allow you to open the rear hatch with or without the bikes loaded I recommend the Apex swinging bike carrier # TH9027XT. This carrier will swing off to the side allowing you to open the rear hatch on your Rouge. I have included a link to a video showing this carrier on a similar vehicle.

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.
