For your 2014 Toyota Sienna, your hitch pin is about 4 to 4-1/2 inches under the outermost part of your bumper depending on which hitch you have installed. For your 4 bike rack, I recommend the Yakima Full Swing # Y02465 you referenced. This bike carrier is easy to install with the AutoPin and SpeedKnob. The dual arms with the Zip Strips makes loading bikes easy and the adjustable cradles give you optimum spacing. The swing away design is far better than the tilting design especially for 4 bike racks to allow you complete access to your cargo with the bikes loaded. I've attached a video to assist.

I recommend the Swagman Deluxe Bike Frame Adapter Bar for Women's, Children's, and Alternative Frame Bikes # 64005. This will create a top frame tube for level transport and ground clearance. I've attached a video of this product to help. You will still run the integrated cable lock from the carrier through the bike frame and not just the adapter to secure your bikes.

Great. I just found out that Yakima just came out with a pivot attachment. Will need to look into that.

Yes. Yakima BackSwing Swing Away Hitch Extender for Bike Racks - 2" Hitches # Y02483 is a nice assembly that essentially can turn any bike rack into a swing away option. The nice aspect to this is it can also be used for other hitch mounted accessories like cargo carriers. It has a 3-1/2 inch shank rise and can hold up to 250 lbs total.
