Will Kuat Transfer 2 Bike Rack Work on 212 VW Eos With Draw-Tite Trailer Hitch


IS there enough clearance using the Transfer 2 on the Eos with the Draw-Tite 24824?


Expert Reply:

We have not had a chance to test fit the Draw-Tite Trailer Hitch Receiver # 24824 on a 2012 VW Eos so I can't tell you definitively if the Kuat Transfer V2 Bike Platform Rack # KU74FR will have enough clearance.

Based on the accompanying photo showing this hitch installed on an Eos it looks like it should, but the issue with the Transfer is that it is only 6 inches from the center of the hitch pin hole to the closest part of the rack.

While the Transfer may work there is another option with more clearance that work with a Class I hitch I recommend checking out, the Hollywood Racks Sport Rider 2-Bike Platform Rack # HR1000Z.

The Sport Rider measures 8-3/4" to the closest part of the rack when folded.

I have added links to video reviews for you to check out as well.
