Will the Kuat Sherpa 2.0 or Kuat Transfer V2 Cause an Obstructed Camera View on a 2015 Nissan Xterra


I was looking into a bike rack for my 2015 Xterra. I was looking into the Kuat Transfer 2 or the Sherpa 2.0 and was curious if either one of them would obstruct the factory back-up camera.


Expert Reply:

Given the location of the back-up camera on your 2015 Nissan Xterra, you are likely to have an obstructed back up camera view with any bike rack, especially when you have bikes loaded.

That being said between the Kuat Sherpa 2.0 Bike Rack # SH22G and the Kuat Transfer V2 Bike Rack # KU84FR, the Kuat Transfer V2 Bike Rack # KU84FR will provide the least obstruction when unloaded an folded up. This is because Transfer does not have the thick center mast coming directly up the middle of the vehicle where the camera is like the Sherpa. Both racks will have a similar amount of obstruction with bikes loaded.
