Electric Bike Rack Compatible With Class I Trailer Hitch Receiver On 2020 Toyota Corolla

Question:

Toyota do not recommand to tow a trailer or carry a bike rack on a hitch for the corolla sedan 2020. Do you think it is dangerous to have 2 e-bikes on a e-bike rack for this car? I am à little bit nervous after i read this note in my Owner book. Thanks.

Ultimately that decision comes down to what you feel comfortable with. You are correct that the owner's manual for your 2020 Toyota Corolla mentions that the vehicle is not designed for a trailer hitch receiver to be used for towing or carrying bike racks.

If you choose to use a trailer hitch receiver to carry your two electric bikes you would need the Curt Trailer Hitch Receiver - Custom Fit - Class I - 1-1/4" # C34UR which has a 200lb tongue weight rating. Since the only hitches available for your vehicle are Class I for a bike rack you would need the Thule T2 Classic 2 Bike Platform Rack - 1-1/4" Hitches - Tilting # TH9045 which is designed for Class I or II trailer hitch receivers and is rated for a single bike weighing up to 60lbs, or a two bikes totaling 100lbs.

I included a video of the # TH9045 for you to take a look at.
