Best 3 Bike Trunk Rack Recommendation for a 2008 Toyota Prius


Which brand and model of 3 bike rack will work the best on our 2008 prius?


Expert Reply:

The 3 bike trunk rack that I would recommend for your 2008 Toyota Prius would be the Thule OutWay 3 Bike Rack # TH56BV.

TheOutWay 3 includes a number of advanced features, including the patented Thule Fit-Dial system which makes precise installation simple and repeatable. This carrier uses 2 high-strength cables (rather than 6 wear-prone nylon straps) to secure to your vehicle and it includes locks both for the carrier itself and for your loaded bikes. Cushioned anti-sway cradles support your bikes (up to 33-lbs per bike) and the arms fold when not in use.

I even attached a review video that shows this rack being demoed on a similar 2007 Prius as yours.

If you plan on carrying any women's or alternative framed bikes without horizontal top tubes you may also be interested in purchasing a Thule Bike Adapter Bar # TH982XT to provide a horizontal top tube on your bikes to provide an attachment point. I attached a review video for this product also. This will allow the bikes to be carried more level and will provide more ground clearance.
