Will the Swagman Current Work on my 2018 Subaru Outback  


Eager to buy the swagman current hitch bike rack. Its just that im wondering if the tray will hit my bumper if in a folded position. Coz i think there is like a 5inches clearance from the receiver when folded. Have you tried putting it on a subaru outback 2018? I have a class 3 hitch 2in receiver that i purchased and had it installed at uhaul. Thank you..

The Swagman Current 2 Bike Platform Rack part # S64678 has a distance from the center of the pin hole to the closest part of the rack when in the folded position is 5 3/4". By design when installed there is no movement or play in the rack meaning if you have 5" of room it will clear the back bumper by 3/4" which will work well.

We have not had a chance yet to test fit it on a 2018 Subaru Outback but if you confirm the center of your pin hole is in fact 5" from the furthest out portion of your bumper you're in good shape.
