Trailer Hitch Recommendation for 2020 Toyota Sienna to Use 4-Bike Rack

Question:

I would like to get the best option for a trailer hitch for a 2020 Toyota Sienna. I have heard good things about the Draw-Tite and am checking out the 75237 and 76112. I don't plan on towing but we do like to go biking and I'll also need a 4-bike rack.

Going with the Draw-Tite is a smart choice because they have proven over time to be the highest-quality manufacturer of trailer hitches, and this is definitely the brand I would use if it were my 2020 Toyota Sienna. Between the two Draw-Tite hitches you asked about, I recommend the Draw-Tite Trailer Hitch Receiver # 76112 because it has a concealed crosstube, which gives you a number of advantages over a hitch that has a visible crosstube, such as the Draw-Tite # 75237 you mentioned.

When using a hitch with a concealed crosstube not only does your Sienna keep a clean appearance, but you have more ground clearance and more bumper clearance, which is especially important for accessories like a bike rack. More ground clearance means avoiding potentially hitting the hitch or rack when going over a large bump or up a steep driveway, for instance, and more bumper clearance makes it easier to install the rack in your hitch. I have added a couple photos a customer was nice enough to send in of this hitch on their Sienna both with and without a bike rack installed.

The 4-bike rack I recommend for use with the Draw-Tite # 76112 is the Hollywood Racks Destination 4-Bike Platform Rack # HR4000 because it has frame holders which can adjust vertically on the mast as well as rotate, which means it can accommodate many different size of bikes. It also has a 3-3/4" rise in the shank to help with ground clearance, and can fold up if you do not have bikes on the rack. It is also among the most economical 4-bike platform racks while not sacrificing anything in terms of quality.

I have added links to installs of the Draw-Tite hitches for you to check out, as well as a link to a video review of the Hollywood Racks Destination 4-Bike Rack for you to take a look at.
