Recommended Trailer Hitch Receiver on 2005 Toyota Prius to Carry a Bike Rack


I have a 2005 Prius and am getting a Swagman XTC2 bike rack...which hitch would you recommend?


Expert Reply:

For your 2005 Toyota Prius I recommend the Draw-Tite Sportframe Class I Trailer Hitch Receiver # 24808. This features a 2000 pound towing capacity and 200 pound tongue weight. I prefer the Draw-Tite because it does not require the use of a support strap when carrying items like bike racks which the Curt hitch will.

The Swagman XTC-2 # S64670 is a great rack for you because it will fit the 1-1/4 inch Class I hitch on your Prius. If you're interested in a Locking Anti-Rattle, Threaded Hitch Pin # S64029 will also work with the XTC-2.
