The Draw-Tite Class I 1-1/4 Inch Hitch, part # 24796, will fit your 2010 Nissan Altima. I am including a link to the installation instructions on the Draw-Tite hitch.

The SportRack Evader 3 Bike Carrier, part # A30403XT, will fit a 1-1/4 inch hitch but it has to be a Class II hitch. The Draw-Tite hitch # 24796 is only a Class I hitch. So the bike carrier will not work on the Draw-Tite hitch.

A Class I hitch is a 1-1/4 inch receiver and is rated at a maximum tongue weight capacity of 200 lbs. A Class II hitch is a 1-1/4 inch receiver and is rated at a maximum tongue weight capacity of 350 lbs. A hitch accessory that will only fit Class II hitches will not physically fit in a Class I hitch. The Class I hitch will have a stopper in the back of the receiver which will keep the pin holes from lining up on a Class II accessory. This keeps a user from overloading a Class I hitch.

The only hitches for your Nissan Altima will be a Class I hitch. I do have some bike racks that will fit a Class I hitch, but you will be limited to only carrying 2 bikes. The Swagman Trailhead 3 Bike Carrier, part # S63365, will fit a Class I hitch. Even though it is a 3 bike rack you will be limited to only 2 bikes. The same bike rack in the 2 bike version would be the Swagman Trailhead 2 Bike Carrier, part # S63360. I am including a link to the instructions on both of the Swagman bike racks.

Also, I am including a link to a FAQ page that will describe the different hitch classes.
