Best Trailer Hitch and Bike Rack for 2018 Acura RDX  


I am looking for a trailer hitch for my 2018 Acura RDX to carry a bike rack. What hitch and bike rack would be the best for my car?


Expert Reply:

The best trailer hitch for your 2018 Acura RDX to carry a bike rack is the Curt # C13130 because it has clean look with a concealed cross tube and the highest tongue weight capacity among the hitches that fit your Acura, which speaks to the strength of the hitch. This Class III, 2" hitch is made in the USA and is a complete bolt-on installation that will not require any type of drilling into your car's frame.

I have added a photo showing how the hitch looks when installed on a RDX as well as a link to an installation video for you to take a look at.

The bike rack I highly recommend to use with this hitch on your '18 Acura RDX is the Saris Freedom # SA4412B because it offers an exceptional combination of functionality and form while being very easy to use.

The Freedom is a 2-bike platform rack which uses adjustable padded hooks to grasp your bikes by the down tubes as well as sliding wheel trays with ratcheting straps to secure your bikes by the wheels. It also features a handy lever which you only need to push to tilt the rack down or fold it up.

This rack comes with an anti-rattle hitch lock to secure the rack to your Acura, helping protect your investment. The Freedom is very lightweight at just 22.5 lbs but still has a 60 lb per bike weight capacity.

I have added a link to video reviews of this rack for you to check out as well.
