Review of the Thule Hitching Post Pro Hitch Bike Racks on a 2020 Chrysler Pacifica


Adam: Hi everyone. Adam with etrailer.com today we're going to be taking a look at the Thule Hitching Post Pro on our 2020 Chrysler Pacifica. So the Pacifica is going to have a lot of seats in it. So if you have a full car and everybody wants to ride a bike, I do think that a four bike rack will work for you. We have a couple of them that are five bike rack, but this one right here are only going to hold about four, but it is going to have about three tie down points per bike. You're going to have two here up top and an anti-sway cradle at the bottom.

And what that going to do, when you're starting and stop and it's going to prevent those bikes from swinging and hitting each other, maybe making a couple of scuff marks or something like that.So let's go ahead and just take this bike off the rack. All we really need to do is just take these soft durable rubber straps to pull them to get them off. It's going to be nice and soft so we don't have to worry about it scratching our bike frames and that's always a plus. Then it's going to be the same exact strap for all of them and including the anti sway cradle. So once we get all those off, all we really got to do is just lift it and wiggle it off.So where our bike frame sits on, it's not as soft but it still is a rubber texture and it is going to have these little ridges here that will leave room for your bike cables just so they're not smashing up against your frame.

It's always nice buying a product, knowing it's going to do its best to help prevent any damage to happen to your bikes. And this one definitely takes all of that stuff into consideration.Let's go ahead and actually just measure from our bumper to the farthest most point to see if we've added . see how much length we've added. About 39 inches. So if you have a smaller garage or something like that or you're even at the trails and you take the bikes off and you don't necessarily want somebody to run by and maybe hit this in the parking lot, we can actually just go ahead and pull this pin here and rotate it down and you don't have to worry about losing this pin because it is connected.

And that's one thing I like about it because I lose almost everything. So it's definitely a plus and we can just replace it like so. There we go. All right, so that's going to bring our distance down to a little bit less than before. So hopefully this will be enough to fit into your garage or get it out of the way.

About 16 inches, we brought that down. So that's definitely a significant amount that we brought it down to just, you guys don't have to really take this out in of the hitch all the time.There's another pin that we can pull down here and that's going to allow us to tilt. Again, the pin does stay connected. When we tilt we can go ahead and have access to the back of our Pacifica. So we don't have to worry about taking it out of our hitch to gain access to that, but we will have to take our bikes off. There are a couple bike racks that don't have you take the bikes off to tilt. So if you guys think that that is something you guys would want so you don't have to take those bikes off all the time. I know the Saris Glide EX does allow you to tilt with the bikes installed. So if that's something you guys want, I don't think the Thule Hitching Post Pro will be the one for you, but it does tilt.So let's go ahead and look at our shank. It is going to be somewhat versatile. We have a inch and a quarter inch shank here, but we have sleeve on the inside so that is going to make it compatible with the two inch hitch receiver. So it will be compatible with both inch and a quarter and a two inch hitch receiver. So if you have two different sizes on two different vehicles, don't worry. You can use it on both and it will come with an anti rattle bolt and that's just going to take out all the loosieness and the inside of our hitch receiver so we don't really have to worry about it rattling around whenever we're driving down the road. That does come with it. Not every bike rack comes with a anti rattle bolt so that just comes with it, which is a plus.All in all, one thing that this bike rack does not come with is a cable for your bikes, so if you would like to have that purchase it separately or just take a look at some of our other options that may have it built in. Other than that, that's pretty much all there is for the Thule Hitching Post Pro on our 2020 Chrysler Pacifica.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.
