Fit of Yakima RidgeBack 2 Bike Rack in OEM Class 1 Hitch on 2015 Honda CRV


I bought a new 2015 CRV and put a Honda factory hitch 1 1/4 150 lb. tounge wt and 1500 lb. towing. Will the Y 02457 2 bike rack work on this hitch ?


Expert Reply:

Yakima rates their RidgeBack 2 bike rack # Y02457 as being a fit for Class II 1-1/4 inch receivers only. Given the capacities you mentioned, it sounds as if the hitch is a Class I. Check the rating sticker on the hitch, which should state if the hitch is a Class I or II.

If it's a Class II, the RidgeBack # Y02457 you referred to would work great. If it's a Class I, you'd need to choose a different rack. The Thule Camber bike rack, part # TH9058is a similar rack that is compatible with a Class I hitch.
