2020 BMW X5 Trailer Hitch and Bike Rack Recommendations


I'd like to install a hitch and a hitch mount bike rack on my 2020 BMW X5. I don’t have the M sport. I would like a good quality rack, but not over the top. I want something easy to add and remove. I don’t want to be driving around with it all the time. Something for 3 bikes. I Hope this helps.

I have the perfect solution for carrying a hitch mount bike rack with your 2020 BMW X5!

Starting off I recommend the Draw-Tite Max-Frame Trailer Hitch Receiver # 76288 which has a hidden crosstube so the receiver is the only thing that you see under the bumper of your vehicle.

Then for a bike rack I recommend the Yakima BackRoad 4 Bike Rack # YA44FR because it is a quality bike rack with just enough features to make it user-friendly, but not all of the high-end features that run the price of the rack up. This comes with a lock for the bikes but if you'd like to add a lock to the rack itself you also need the HitchLock # Y07235.

Please note that if any of your bikes lacks a horizontal top tube you also need an adapter bar like part # Y02531 to help your bike fit and keep it level.

Attached is a review video of the BackRoad for you to check out.
