Bike Rack to Carry 3 Bikes on a 2009 Toyota RAV4  


Will the Surco Spare Tire 3 bike carrier fit my 2009 Rav4. If not do you recommend another product that will hold at least 3 bikes. Thank you!


Helpful Expert Reply:

Unfortunately, we've heard from Surco that their spare tire rack, # BT300, does not fit the your 2009 Toyota RAV4. We also do not have a spare tire mount rack for 3 bikes that fits.

Your best bet to carry 3 bikes is to add a trailer hitch receiver and use a hitch mounted bike rack.

If you don't already have a hitch receiver I recommend the etrailler # e98864. I've linked an install video for you.

Then you can use a swinging bike rack like the SportRack Ridge # SR2415 to allow access to the rear of the RAV4. If you're not worried about accessing the rear hatch then a great inexpensive option for 3 bikes is the Swagman Trailhead # S63365.

I've linked videos of the two hitch mounted racks for you to take a look at.
