Hitch Bike Rack Recommendation for 2016 Honda CR-V


I have a 2016 Honda CRV. I dont have a hitch but told I needed one. I have only one or maybe 2 bikes I would carry just occasionally. I do not want anything complicated or hard to put on or take off. Im a single woman and have no help. What should I do? I also would like to do this without sp Ning loads of money. I would only use it a few times a year. Thanks for any help.

The most popular bike rack we carry that has been confirmed to fit this vehicle is the Thule Roadway 2 part # TH912XTR. We asked our demo and install guys to name their favorite, most easy-to-use bike racks and this one showed up in nearly everyone's top three. Check out the review video I attached for more info.

You will need a trailer hitch to install the rack as well. For that you would want the Draw Tite hitch part # 75742 which is a confirmed fit.

If you plan on carrying any womens or alternative framed bikes without horizontal top tubes you may also be interested in purchasing a Kuat Bike Frame Adapter Bar # UB01 to provide a horizontal top tube on your bikes to provide an attachment point. I attached a review video for this product also. This will allow the bikes to be carried more level and will provide more ground clearance.
