Recommended Bike Rack for 2015 Honda Pilot

Question:

Id like to get a rear trailer hitch for my 2015 Honda Pilot to accommodate a 3-bike rack. Do you have a specific model number. Id rather not drill any additional holes or to modify the hitch in order to install it. Many thanks!

All 2015 Honda Pilots come with a trailer hitch already so you should have one on your vehicle; there are no aftermarket hitches available for this car.

For a bike rack I highly recommend checking out the Yakima DoubleDown # Y02424. This is a 4-bike rack which fits both 1-1/4" and 2" hitches that uses anti-sway cradles to support your bikes at three different points in order to keep your bikes safe from contacting your Pilot or each other.

It offers convenience with a handy push button so you can fold down the rack's arms when you aren't using it and has a tilting mast which will allow you to access your Pilot's rear cargo.

Additionally, please note that when using any hanging rack like the DoubleDown you'll need bike frame adapter bar # Y02531 if your bike is dual-suspension, has a step-through frame or you want to carry a small children's bike. The bar will give those bikes a horizontal mounting point so they can be carried by the rack.
