Review of the Thule Hitching Post Pro Hitch Bike Racks on a 2019 Toyota Sienna


Adam: Hi everyone. Adam with etrailer.com. Today we're going to be taking a look at the Thule Hitching Post Pro on our 2019 Toyota Sienna. So, this is going to be a hanging style bike rack, and it is going to be able to fit about four bikes onto it. We're going to have three tie down points per bike. So, as you can see here, we do have two up on our top main beam of our frame here, and it's going to have a soft durable rubber strap.

So, it's not really going to damage the top of your bike, and it is going to last a decently long time. It's pretty thick.And we also are going to have an anti sway cradle. And what that's going to do is pretty much limit that bike to bike contact that you're going to get whenever you're going down the road. Once we undo all those, you can go ahead and just remove your bike. Some of these hanging-style racks you might have to kind of sway it right and left to get it off.

And that all just depends on what kind of bike you guys have. As you can see, the triangle on this one isn't too big, but we still got it on there.So, another cool thing about this bike rack is just the fact that it keeps your bike in mind. We have these little grooves here. It's going to be for our bike cables just so the bike cables aren't just smashing up against your frame. It's always nice buying a product that's going to protect your investment, and in this case that investment is your bike.So with any hitch mounted accessory, we are going to add a little bit of length to the back of our vehicle.

So we're going to measure from our bumper to the farthest most point here. And we are going to add about 36 and a half inches from our bumper out to the outer edge here. We can actually break that down a little bit just by pulling this pin. Really simple. We can tilt that down and then replace our pin.

And that's going to bring our distance down quite a bit. It's going to be about 14 inches in this orientation. So, if you have a smaller garage, you're going to be able to not have to remove it to get it in there.Another feature, which is going to be really nice, especially with our back hatch here on our Sienna, pull another clip here. We're actually going to be able to tilt that away so we won't lose access to the trunk of our Sienna. And that's definitely a plus just because you get to the spot. Where's all your gear going It's probably going to be in the back. So luckily, we can just tilt that once our lights are off of it, and we can grab whatever we need. You just lift it back up or in a place to pen once you're done and snap it into place.So, looking down at our shank here, it is a straight shank. But as you can see here we have a sleeve, and this is going to make it compatible with a two-inch hitch receiver that we have here. But you can actually remove that, and it's going to be compatible with any inch and a quarter hitch as well. It's always nice just knowing that you're not limited to one hitch size whenever you buy a bike rack.We're going to measure a little bit of ground clearance here. There's not a whole lot, but still a little bit under 10 inches, but it doesn't stick out a whole lot. From our anti-rattle bolt to the outermost edge is about 15 inches, so I don't think we'll have any issues bottoming out. But if you have a really aggressive driveway, just be sure and be mindful that you have that amount of ground clearance there.And it does come with an anti rattle bolt. Some of them don't. And what that's going to do is just pretty much just secure the shank of our bike rack into the hitch receiver. As you can see, our car was really moving, and there wasn't any rattling going on in there. But other than that, that's just about it for a look at the Thule Hitching Post Pro on our 2019 Toyota Sienna.Here on our test course, we'll start by going through the slalom. This is going to show us the side to side action. This simulates turning corners or evasively maneuvering. Once we get to the alternating speed bumps, we'll see the twisting action. This will simulate hitting a curb or pothole, or driving over uneven pavement. Once we get to the full speed bumps, we'll see the up and down action. This will be just like driving in and out of a parking lot, parking garage, or driveway.
