Recommended Trailer Hitch and 2 Bike Rack To Carry E-Bikes On 2009 Subaru Impreza Sedan

Question:

I need a trailer hitch with a 2inch receiver to support a bike rack for my 2 e-Bikes? 130 lbs combined together I have a 2009 Subaru Impreza Sedan. Do you have something that will work for my vehicle?

Helpful Expert Reply:

I have another option for you, but there is not a 2" trailer hitch available for your 2009 Subaru Impreza Sedan.

What I recommend instead is the Curt Trailer Hitch Receiver - Custom Fit - Class I - 1-1/4" # C11317 which has a 1-1/4" trailer hitch receiver and a 200lb tongue weight rating and 2000lb trailer weight rating.

This rack can still carry your two E-bikes, but you will have limited options when it comes to bike racks.

I recommend the Thule EasyFold XT Bike Rack for 2 Electric Bikes - 1-1/4" and 2" Hitches - Frame Mount # TH903202 which will work perfectly with a Class I hitch, and can accommodate two bikes weighing up to 65lbs each. Since the rack itself weighs 45lbs and can carry 130lbs worth of bikes you would still be under the 200lb rating of the hitch.

I included a link to the written instructions of the # C11317 and a video review of the # TH903202 for you to take a look at.
