Bike Rack for 2020 Toyota RAV4 That Allows Access to Hatch While Bikes are on Rack


Im looking for a bike rack for a 2020 RAV4 Hybrid that gives me access to the rear door while the bikes are on the rack. I just had a 2 trailer hitch installed. Im over 70 years old ! so it should be very user friendly! Thank you.

There one outstanding and very user-friendly bike rack that we know will give you access to your 2020 Toyota RAV4 with the bikes on the rack, the Thule Helium bike rack. This rack is available in either 1-bike or 2-bike options:

- 1 Bike: Thule Helium 1-Bike Platform Rack # TH64VR

- 2 Bikes: Thule Helium 2-Bike Platform Rack # TH44VR

I have added a photo for you which shows this rack tilting down with the bikes on so you can see that your hatch can open with the rack on, and also added links to a pair of video reviews of this rack on a 2020 RAV4.

The Helium is one of the most user-friendly bike racks you can get because to tilt it down like in the photo (as well as fold it up) you simply have to pull a lever on the rack. And to tighten it in your hatch, all you have to do is twist a knob, so you aren't going to have to use any tools to try and tighten the rack in your hitch like you see with so many other racks. It even has a lock to secure the rack in your hitch and an integrated cable lock to secure your bikes to the rack, helping protect your investments.
