Can 4-Bike Platform Style Bike Carrier be Used on a 2009 Subaru Legacy with Class III Trailer Hitch  


Can I install a 4-bike platform rack on a 2009 Subaru Legacy that has a class 3 hitch.


Expert Reply:

Yes, you can install and use a 4-bike platform style carrier with the Class III trailer hitch on your 2009 Subaru Legacy. The combined weight of the carrier and the bikes needs to be under the tongue weight capacity of the trailer hitch. The 2 Class III trailer hitches we have for your Legacy have tongue weight capacities of 400 pounds. This is more than enough.

The Hollywood Racks Sport Rider SE, # HR1400Z, is a solid option. As a 4-bike rack it weighs 74 pounds and has a 200 pound (50 pounds per bike) capacity. I have linked a video review of this carrier for you.
