Recommended Trailer Hitch and Bike Rack for 2018 Chevy Bolt EV


Hi there. I have a 2018 Chevy Bolt EV and I'm trying to find a trailer hitch and bike rack to use with it that will work well. Can you please make a good recommendation? Thank you very much.


Expert Reply:

Starting with the hitch for your 2018 Chevy Bolt EV I recommend the EcoHitch Hidden Trailer Hitch Receiver # 306-X7359 because it has the highest weight capacity and is the only hitch available for your Bolt EV that features a 2 inch receiver. The 2 inch opening is compatible with many more hitch-mounted accessories than the smaller 1-1/4 inch receivers.

In addition to its strength and versatility the EcoHitch also features a sleek hidden design where only the 2 inch receiver will be visible allowing for a nice OEM appearance on your Chevy Bolt.

Then for a bike rack that will work great with this hitch I recommend taking a look at the Kuat Transfer V2 Bike Rack # KU74FR. This is an excellent platform-style rack that uses ratcheting hooks to secure your bikes by the front wheels without any frame contact and the easy-to-use foot pedal lets you tilt the rack back (with bikes still loaded) for quick rear cargo access. It can handle 2 that are up to 40 pounds each.

I have attached a couple short video demonstrations that you can check out as well.
