Hitch Recommendation for Bike Rack on 2006 Ford Freestyle  


i need a hitch for a 2006 Ford Freestyle SUV/Wagon and I am using the hitch for a bike rack. Which style of hitch would I need. Thanks


Expert Reply:

I would recommend that you get a Class 3 hitch with a 2 inch receiver for your vehicle. The Class 3 hitch will provide the most versatility and options for towing and hauling. You will have a wider selection of all accessories, bike racks included, with the 2 inch receiver hitch. It will also give you the best options if your towing or hauling needs should change in the future.

The Draw-Tite Class 3 Trailer Hitch, item # 75299 would be an excellent choice and installs easily with no drilling required (see video). One muffler hanger will have to be cut for the installation.

I have also posted a link to some of our bike racks for two inch hitches. The Swagman Titan is a great rack that is relatively inexpensive. It is available in 2 bike (# S63400) 3 bike (# S63405) and 4 bike (# S63410) capacities.

I have also linked you to a product demonstration video featuring the Titan bike rack.
