Hitch Mounted Bike Rack to Carry 4 Bikes and Allow Access to Rear Cargo Area on a 2006 Honda CR-V


I have a 2006 Honda CRV. I know this rack folds down to get to the back door, however, it looks like it might not go down far enough with 2006 CRV door that opens left to right. Does it fold forward enough to open the back door? If not, what about the Thule Parkway 4-bike hitch? Thanks.


Expert Reply:

It's not very likely any hanging bike rack will tilt far enough away from a 2006 Honda CR-V to access the rear cargo area.

For a 4-bike rack to allow rear cargo access you'll need a swinging rack like the Yakima FullSwing # Y02465. It has the ability to swing completely out of the way to allow you access to the rear of the CR-V.

The FullSwing can carry up to 4 bikes and includes a locking hitch pin to secure it to the Honda.
