Trunk Bike Rack For 2021 Toyota Rav4


Hi I need a bike rack for 2012 Toyota rav4 prime XSE. I understand that no hitch racks work with hatch kick bar. Which high quality hatch racks will work 2 bikes. I’m told the saris bones will not, but don’t know why. Thanks

Yes I recommend the Yakima FullBack 2 Bike Rack Part # Y02634 for your 2012 Toyota Rav4. This is a great quality bike rack that is trunk mounted and will accommodate 2 bikes up to 35 pounds each. I suggest if you are planning on using this rack for step-through bikes, children's bikes, or bikes with different shaped frames, picking up the Yakima Tube Top Bike Adapter Bar Part # Y02531.

The Saris Bones is not a confirmed fit on vehicles with a short mounting point on the trunk or bumper. The feet need a substantial surface to mount safely and securely when traveling down the road. As you can see the Yakima FullBack offers a full support bar on the base to allow full contact with the bumper contact point.

I have attached a review video of the bike rack below!
