Bike Rack Recommendation for 2010 Toyota RAV4 to Clear Rear Spare


I have a 2010 Toyota Rav 4 with the spare wheel casing on the hatch door. I am looking for an easy to install, somewhat light in weight but durable bike rack to carry my Cannondale Jekyll and my sons 12inch Trek Mtn bike. Any ideas on what product best fits these requirements?

When we installed the Draw Tite hitch part # 75235 on a 2010 Toyota RAV4 we found that it had a distance of 7 inches from the hitch pin hole to the outside portion of the spare tire carrier casing. That's a pretty reasonable amount of clearance for fitting a hitch bike rack.

For a lightweight, very durable, 2 bike rack that would work great we have the Saris Freedom Superclamp EX2 # SA4025F which would clear your spare and work well. This is one of the nicest and most durable bike rack solutions we offer that would work well for you so it would be a great option for both yours and your sons bike.
