Best Trailer Hitch Receiver for Bike Rack on 2020 Subaru Outback


Im just about to take delivery on a new Subaru 2020 Outback.I need a 2 inch receiving hitch for a platform bike rack. Which hitches would your recommend and why?


Expert Reply:

There is one trailer hitch receiver for a 2020 Subaru Outback that stands above the rest for use with a platform bike rack, the Draw-Tite Trailer Hitch Receiver # DT94MR.

The Draw-Tite (pictured on a '20 Outback) is the best for use with a bike rack because it gives you best ground clearance than other hitches, and measures just 1-1/2 inches from the hitch pin hole to the edge of your bumper. That is the best bumper clearance of all the other hitches that fit your 2020 Outback with the exception of the pricier and more difficult to install Stealth Hitches Hidden Rack Receiver # 391SUOB20.

The Draw-Tite is a 2 inch hitch and with those clearances will allow you to use the bike rack of your choice, including the outstanding options like the Thule Helium 2-Bike Rack # TH44VR, Kuat Sherpa 2.0 2-Bike Rack # SH22B, or Yakima OnRamp E-Bike Rack # Y36FR.

I have added links to video reviews for you to check out as well, including an install on a 2020 Outback of the Draw-Tite Trailer Hitch Receiver # DT94MR.
