Bike Rack Recommendation for 2009 Mercedes-Benz ML350 Without Trailer Hitch


What type of bike rack would you recommend for a 2009 Mercedes ML350 without a hitch?


Expert Reply:

Since your 2009 Mercedes-Benz ML350 does not have a trailer hitch receiver installed your bike-carrying options will consist of either trunk-mount or roof-rack-mount types (that naturally require a roof rack be installed on the vehicle).

Trunk-mount rack options for your ML350 will be the most cost-effective choice and the link provided will let you see all compatible 2- and 3-bike carriers. Please note that you cannot transport more than 3 bikes on the trunk of your vehicle.

You can use the filters at the left-hand margin to select the attributes and features (such as included locks) that you prefer. For example, Thule's OutWay carriers, the 3-bike # TH56BV and the 2-bike version # TH45JV, both include locks to secures your bikes to the rack and the rack to your ML350.

If the roof rack idea interests you (since it would enable other cargo-carrying options) please let me know your intended usage for the roof rack and I'll be glad to make recommendations. The linked article will be helpful.
