Recommended Trailer Hitch and Bike Rack that Allows Cargo Area Access for 2014 Toyota Sienna


We just purchased a 2014 Sienna LXE and we would like to purchase a hitch and a bike rack . We are very interested in the product that swings to allow for easy access to our trunk. I would like your opinion on the type of hitch and rack that would go with it. I plan on putting this on myself so it needs to be fairly easy to install. Any help you could give me is much appreciated.

Beginning with a hitch, I'd recommend the Curt Class III, part # C13105. I'll link you to installation instructions and an install video showing the hitch being installed on a 2013 Sienna. The procedure for your 2014 model would be almost identical.

For a bike rack, the Thule Apex Swing, part # TH9027XT would be a good choice. The locking hitch pin and cable lock are included. The rack swings completely to the right, allowing full access to the cargo area of your vehicle.

If you'll be transporting women's bikes or bikes with sharply-angled top tubes, you might also consider a frame adapter bar like part # 64005. The bar spans the distance between the handlebar gooseneck and the seat post, which provides a secondary attachment point for the bike rack. This allows the bike to be carried level, which maximizes ground clearance. To view a product demonstration video featuring the Thule Apex Swing, click the provide link.
