Determining if Swagman Chinook Can Fold without Hitting Rear Bumper on 2010 Toyota 4Runner


Will this bike rack fold up without touching the bumper on a 2010 Toyota Runner?


Expert Reply:

The Swagman Chinook 2 Bike Platform Rack # S64683 referenced in your question will have a distance of 6 inches from the center of the hitch pin hole on your 4Runner to the closest part of the rack when it is folded up. In order to see if this will interfere with the rear bumper on the vehicle, I recommend taking a quick measurement from the center of the hitch pin hole on your hitch receiver to the outside edge of the rear bumper. If this measurement is less than 6 inches, this bike rack will work great and will fold up without any interference.

The Swagman Chinook is a great choice for transporting your 2 bikes. The carrier features ratcheting, padded hooks that will hold your bikes firmly by their top tubes, sliding cradles to accommodate bikes of different lengths, and spring-loaded levers that will let you tilt the rack down (with bikes still loaded) to allow for easy rear cargo access. It can secure 2 bikes of up to 45 pounds each. A hitch and bike lock is also included.

I have attached a short video demonstration on this product that you can also check out.
