Hitch and Bike Rack Recommendation for 2017 Chrysler Pacifica that Allows Rear Cargo Area Access


We have a 2017 Chrysler Pacifica Touring L MAX TONGUE WEIGHT 149 lbs, our bikes are 36 lbs. Wed like to put 4 bikes on the back but Im doubting that will happen. So were hoping to put 3 bikes on the back. Were putting a Draw-tite 76046 hitch on. Can you supply a few options for trailer hitch rackers we might get. Being able to access the hatch with the bikes off is important.


Expert Reply:

The Draw Tite hitch part # 76046 is the best hitch for your 2017 Chrysler Pacifica for carrying a bike rack like you are wanting as it has the best weight capacities, ground clearance, and is mostly hidden.

For rear cargo area access the best option is the Thule Apex Swing bike rack part # TH9027XT as it swing out and away from the rear of the vehicle to give you total access. It also can do so with bikes loaded on the rack as well.

If you plan on carrying any womens or alternative framed bikes without horizontal top tubes you may also be interested in purchasing a Kuat Bike Frame Adapter Bar # UB01 to provide a horizontal top tube on your bikes to provide an attachment point. I attached a review video for this product also. This will allow the bikes to be carried more level and will provide more ground clearance.
