Trailer Hitch and Bike Rack for 2 Electric Bikes on a 2004 Toyota Prius


Hi, I have a 2004 Toyota Prius, Im interested in both a hitch and a bike rack. The bike rack must be able to hold 2 e-bikes weighing 58 to 60 lbs. each. Can you please recommend the appropriate parts? Thank you!


Expert Reply:

For a trailer hitch to use with an e-bike rack I recommend the EcoHitch # 306-X7196 for your 2004 Toyota Prius. This is a 2" trailer hitch receiver with a 300 lb tongue weight capacity, which opens up a LOT more options to choose from when it comes to a bike rack.

For a bike rack that has a high enough capacity to hold 2 E-bikes weighing up to 60 pounds each you can use the Saris SuperClamp EX # SA4025F, Kuat NV 2.0, # NV22G, or the Thule EasyFold # TH903202. All of these racks are rated for 60 pounds per bike.

The EasyFold will be the easiest to load since it has the built-in ramps. But I would go with the Kuat because of its modern and sleek design.
