Recommended Bike Rack for a 2005 Subaru Forester


I have a 2005 Subaru Forester, will this bike rack # C18030 fit my vehicle?


Expert Reply:

As long as your 2005 Subaru Forester has a 1-1/4 inch trailer hitch, like part # 36311, then yes, the Curt 4 Bike Rack , part # C18030, will fit. This is a good, economic bike rack that will get the job done, just keep in mind that the maximum weight capacity of the bike rack is 180 lbs.

If security is an issue for you, I recommend using the 10 foot Long Cable, part # e98891, to secure your bikes to the bike rack.

If you will be carrying any alternative, women's, or kid's bike frame style then I recommend using the Swagman Deluxe Adapter Bar, part # 64005, to ensure that your bikes hang properly from this rack.

I have attached some demonstration videos for you as well.
