Hitch and 5-Bike Rack Recommendation for 2017 Toyota Sienna for Ground Clearance


Hi, I am looking to add a hitch to our 2017 Toyota Sienna and also get a bike rack that will hold at least 5 bikes three kid bikes. We have a very steep driveway so I am concerned about the hitch scraping when we pull in/out. What do you think are some of the best options for a hitch and also for a bike rack considering what I am looking for?


Expert Reply:

The best hitch for ground clearance that fits your 2017 Toyota Sienna is the Curt hitch part # C13343 which sits up higher and also only has the hitch opening that hangs down below the rear bumper which helps considerably with ground clearance when turning into a steep driveway.

Then for a great 5-bike rack at a great price, take a look at the Curt Premium 5 Bike Rack for 2" Hitches - Tilting
Item # C18065. I attached a review video for this rack on a similar 2014 Toyota Sienna.

Since 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.
