Trailer Hitch Mount Bike Rack for a 2009 Toyota RAV4 that Allows Rear Door to Swing Open


Is there enough clearance for the rear door of the Rav4 to fully open swing on the side when the rack is in the tilt down position. Thanks


Expert Reply:

A rear door that swings out to the side, rather than a hatch that swings up, would not be able to open, even if the Thule Hitching Post Pro, # TH934XTR is tilted down.

Instead, you will need a bike rack that swings out to the side like the Thule Apex, # TH9027XT, to be able to open the rear door. This bike rack requires a 2-inch trailer hitch. If you need a 2-inch trailer hitch on your 2009 Toyota RAV4, I recommend etrailer Trailer Hitch, # e98864. This 2-inch hitch is the most popular for your vehicle.
