Recommended Bike Rack That Can Carry 5 Bikes on a 2020 Chrysler Pacifica


I am looking to carry five bikes on my 2020 Chrysler minivan. I’m wondering if the draw tite class III will extend far enough to use a bike rack with that capacity and if so, which rack to you recommend? It would be four kids’ bikes and one women’s and just around town for now.


Expert Reply:

Once the Draw-Tite # 76046 is installed on your 2020 Chrysler Pacifica, it will sit 13 inches off the ground and the center of the pin hole will sit 5 inches behind the bumper. With that being said, you will need a rack that will extend out past 5 inches from said pin hole.

The Thule Apex XT 5 Bike Rack for 1-1/4" and 2" Hitches - Tilting # TH9026XT will extend out 7 1/4 inches from the pin hole and will be the rack I suggest. This has the capacity for 5 bikes and a total carrying capacity of 150 pounds, so will definitely cover your bikes. However, kids bikes can have odd frames which require the use of an adapter bar, like the Swagman # 64005. This can adjust from 24 3/8 inches up to 33 3/4 inches, making it ideal for most frames.
