Compatibility of Thule EasyFold Bike Rack with Draw-Tite 75673 on 2013 Outback Wagon


I just purchased a Thule Helium Aero 2 bike rack and a Draw-Tite 2inch hitch receiver to give to my wife for Christmas, and to be installed on her 2013 Subaru Outback. I have the same bike rack on my Mercedes, and am now concerned that the knob on the bike rack will interfere with the bumper on her outback. Can you tell me if there will be sufficient clearance between the hitch tightening knob and the bumper. Thanks

Thank you for your purchases from etrailer, including the Draw-Tite Class III receiver # 75673 and the Thule EasyFold bike rack # TH903202 for use on your wife's 2013 Subaru Outback Wagon.

When we installed this hitch on a 2013 Outback we measured 5-1/2-inches from the center of the hitch pin hole to the rear edge of the bumper cover. On the Thule EasyFold carrier the foot of the carrier is 7-inches from the hitch pin hole so it will fit well.
