Recommended Trailer Hitch and 3-Bike Rack for 2013 Ford C-Max


I hope you can help me. We are looking for a 3 bike carrier for my son and his two girls. They are just recreational riders at this point. He has a 2013 C Max Hybrid SEL. I am pretty set on the Draw Tite hitch #24896 because he doesn’t need a strap. Can you please recommend a 3 bike carrier for this hitch and car!! Please :-


Expert Reply:

The trailer hitch you will need to use to carry three bikes on a 2013 Ford C-Max is the Curt Trailer Hitch Receiver part # C12092 because of the class II rating. The Draw-Tite Sportframe Trailer Hitch Receiver part # 24896 is only class I rated so the maximum of bikes that can be carried is two. That said, the Curt hitch no longer requires the strap.

For a bike rack, three bike carriers are pretty limited so a four rack option is the best bet. I recommend the Inno Aero Light 4 Bike Rack part # INH640 because it's super lightweight. That said, for bikes without a horizontal top tube you will also need the Swagman Deluxe Bike Frame Adapter Bar part # 64005.
