Recommended 3-Bike Rack Options for 2010 Toyota RAV4


Is there a bike rack for a RAV4 2010 that holds three bikes? Thanks.


Expert Reply:

You have several options for bike carriers on your 2010 Toyota RAV4, spare-tire-mount racks like the Thule Spare Me # TH963PRO which limit you to 2-bikes (due to weight restrictions for the tire mount) or hitch mount racks which require a hitch receiver like # C13149, shown in the linked installation video. For three or more bikes you'll need to go the hitch route.

Your RAV4 could have either a 1-1/4-inch or 2-inch hitch on it (please see the linked article) so you'll want to confirm which you have. If you do not have a hitch now you will want to install a 2-inch Class III type such as a Curt hitch referenced above. Class III hitches have higher capacity (always good) and will allow you more choices in the style of rack you install.

If any of your bikes do not have a top frame tube (like on a typical man's bike) then you'll want to use adapter bars on those bikes, part # UB01. These let such bikes remain level on the carrier for good ground clearance.
