Can I use the Thule Helium Pro on my 2012 Toyota Prius?


I watched the review and have read the comments. I was wondering will this work on a 2012 Prius? I wanted to buy a light weight rack and wanted it to be easy to use. Any suggestions?


Expert Reply:

Yes the Thule Helium Pro 2 Bike Rack - 1-1/4" and 2" Hitches - Tilting - Aluminum part # TH9042PRO will work out on your 2012 Toyota Prius. The shank on the rack is designed to work with both the 2" and 1 1/4" hitches. It is also lightweight so it helps with the lower capacity of 200 lbs. tongue weight that the hitches offered for your Prius has.

If you've already got a hitch on your Prius you're set. If you don't the Draw-Tite Sportframe Trailer Hitch Receiver - Custom Fit - Class I - 1-1/4" part # 24967 Is an excellent choice it is custom designed for your vehicle. I recommend this one because it has a clean appearance after it's installed and it is cost effective.

The video below will help as a guide to the hitch's installation.
