Recommended Hitch and 4-Bike Rack for a 2016 BMW X5  


Hi there, I am interested in purchasing a trailer hitch and a 4 Bike rack for my SUV and I was wondering if you install it. Please let me know. Cheers

I have a great hitch recommendation for your 2016 BMW X5.

It's the Curt Class III, part # 13077. It gives a 2" receiver with a maximum tongue weight of 600 pounds and a maximum towing capacity of 6000 pounds. I've linked to a video installation of this hitch below.

For your bike rack, I recommend the Yakima HoldUp, part # Y02443-2. It's a wheel-mount platform rack that can support 4 bikes up to 50 pounds each. It has the fold-up and tilt-away features and can be reduced to a 2-bike rack whenever you need. I've linked to a video review of this rack as well.
