Will Thule EasyFold XT Fit A Class 1 Trailer Hitch with 1-1/4 Distance from Hitch Pin Hole


I have a class 1 hitch installed on my SUV. The pin hole is only 1 1/4 inch from the end. I want to install a Thule easy fold xt2 to the hitch, but am wondering if the pin hole is not correct and will make the carrier unstable. Any suggestions


Helpful Expert Reply:

The Thule EasyFold XT Bike Rack for 2 Electric Bikes - 1-1/4 inch and 2 inch Hitches - Frame Mount # TH903202 will work with your class 1 hitch if the distance from the center of the hitch pin hole to the face of the hitch is 1-1/2 inches or greater. If yours is 1-1/4 inches it will make it unstable and could fall off when in use.

Depending on what vehicle you have I would recommend going up to a bigger hitch like a class 2 or a class 3 hitch. If you can't do that I would recommend The Swagman Chinook Bike Rack for 2 Bikes - 1-1/4 inch and 2 inch Hitches - Frame Mount # S64683 will work but it does not offer the ramp feature.

I attached a review video link below.
