Trailer Hitch for a 2009 Honda Fit for a Thule Helium Aero Bike Carrier  


Hi, Id like to install a hitch on my 2009 Honda Fit, and use an existing Thule Helium rack. Will that rack work? Any problems using this rack? What hitch do you recommend? Thanks...


Expert Reply:

First, for a trailer hitch, I recommend EcoHitch Trailer Hitch # 306-X7286 for your 2009 Honda Fit. This is a Class II trailer hitch with a 2-inch receiver.

The # TH9042PRO is my favorite hitch mounted bike carrier and you should not have any problems using it. 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.
