Is Curt Trailer Hitch for 2012 Toyota Highlander Compatible with Thule Helium Bike Rack


Hi. Will Curt Hitch #13534 work with Thule helium tilt bike rack? Do you have a phone number for questions? Thanks.


Expert Reply:

The Curt Trailer Hitch # 13534 will allow you to carry a Thule Helium bike rack with your 2012 Toyota Highlander whether you are looking at the Helium Pro Hanging Rack, part # TH9042PRO or # TH9043PRO, or the Helium Platform Rack, part # TH64VR or # TH44VR.

One thing to note though is that Curt currently has the stipulation for this trailer hitch that you need to use the stabilizer strap # 18050 for any non-trailer loads like a bike rack or cargo carrier.

If you'd like to avoid this then you can use the etrailer Trailer Hitch # e98858 instead which has the exact same style except it has a matte black finish which looks more natural on modern vehicles and it hides scratches and dings from road debris better than the standard gloss black finish does.

Attached are some review videos that you can check out.
