Is There a Kuat Transfer V2 Made Only for 2-Inch Hitches?


Factory installed 2inch hitch. Is the ku74fr available for a 2inch receiver or only the 1.5/2inch version and is their adequate clearance between the bumper and the installed hitch, when tilted, to open the rear hatch on the vehicle? Thanks

Kuat does make a 2-inch (only) version of the Transfer V2. The part number of the Kuat Transfer V2 Bike Rack for 2 Bikes - 2" Hitches is # KU84FR.

As far as the clearance between the bumper and the installed hitch on your vehicle, the Kuat Transfer V2 bike rack allows for you to fully access the hatch on most vehicles (with bikes mounted). I looked up pictures of a hitch installed on the 2020 Subaru Ascent, and the hitch receiver sits pretty even with the bumper. However, if you have a bike with exceptionally long handle bars, you might only be able to partly open the rear hatch with bikes mounted on the Transfer V2. I went ahead and attached a video that provides you an example.

If you need a hitch receiver recommendation for your vehicle, I recommend the Draw-Tite Max-Frame Trailer Hitch Receiver - Custom Fit - Class III - 2" # 76253. The Draw-Tite comes with mounting hardware for a bolt-on installation.
