Nissan Murano Bike Rack Questions

  • Hidden Hitch trailer hitch # 75952 is one of the hitches that will fit your 2015 Nissan Murano. When installed we found that the distance from the center of the hitch pin hole back to clear the rear of the vehicle is 4-1/4 inches, see video link. The Kuat NV # NV22G measures 7 inches from the pin hole to the nearest part of the rack when folded up so it will clear the rear of the Murano easily. Given that there is ample clearance with this rack I recommend it. The Sherpa...

  • If you need to transport only 2 bikes on your 2015 Nissan Murano then you have several trunk-mount rack options from Thule, all of which can be seen on the included link. Two of these 2-bike racks include locks to both secure the rack to your Murano and your loaded bikes to the rack. These carriers are the Archway XT # TH9009XT and the outstanding Raceway 2 # TH9001PRO, which is among the most user-friendly trunk racks on the market. The Raceway 2 uses vinyl-coated steel...

  • As long as you have a hitch installed on your 2015 Nissan Murano like the part # 87679 the Swagman XTC2 part # S64670 that you referenced would fit and work well. If you are looking for the nicest Swagman rack the Semi 4.0 part # S64696 would be my recommendation. This rack is also a platform bike rack, but since it only contacts the bike at the tires it would be considered a nicer rack. This style of attachment is great for carbon framed bike or ones with expensive finishes...

  • From my research, I've found that on the 2015 Murano, the back up camera is located just above the license plate. The rack will block the camera to some extent, but there would be enough distance between the camera and the rack that you should still have a pretty good field of vision. Given the location of the camera, most bike racks would interfere to some degree but I believe we offer a rack that would work pretty well for you. The Kuat Transfer, part # TS02G doesn't have...

  • I checked with Thule and the Thule Gateway XT Bike Rack part # TH9006XT that you referenced has been confirmed as a fit for your 2015 Nissan Murano so it would work well for you. I attached a review video for this rack for you to check out as well. If you plan on carrying any womens or alternative framed bikes without horizontal top tubes you may also be interested in purchasing a Swagman Easy-Out Women's and Alternative Frame Bike Adapter # 64005 to provide a horizontal...

  • I suggest the Yakima High Roller # Y02107 for your 2015 Nissan Murano. The wheel mount is much easier to load than the fork mount and will definitely be compatible with your road bikes. To connect the High Roller to your factory Nissan crossbars you will need MightyMounts # Y03590 as well. If you're interested in securing your bikes to the rack you may be interested in the Yakima Same Key System Lock Cores # Y07202. I've attached a video review of the lock cores for you...

  • Pretty much any platform style bike rack that folds up is going to block a back up camera. But there might be a model that might work for you. Take a look at the Saris Thelma, # SA4229B. This rack is compact to start with so the likelihood of it blocking a back up camera is minimal. Take a look at the video I have linked for this bike rack. I don't think the Thule T2 is going to be a good option. It is a large rack with a lot of material that could block the back up camera....

  • The Rola Bike Rack part # 59400 will fit and work well in the Hidden Hitch part # 87486 that you have installed on your 2014 Nissan Murano. I attached a review video for this lock for you to check out as well.

  • I show that the 2014 Nissan Murano takes a Class III trailer hitch with a 2 inch hitch opening, so yes, it will be compatible with the Kuat Beta 2 Bike Rack, # B202-2, which you reference. If you do not have a trailer hitch I would recommend the Hidden Hitch # 87486, which is a Class III hitch that has a 2 inch receiver hitch opening, as long as you do not have the CrossCabriolet model. To determine if the Kuat Beta 2 Bike Rack will work on your vehicle without clearance issues...

  • You'll need to use a hitch mounted bike rack, as there aren't any trunk mount bike racks that are compatible with your Murano. For a hitch, I'd recommend the Curt Class III hitch, part # 13577. For a bike rack, Swagman offers the reasonably priced yet well equipped Trailhead which is available in a 2 bike model # S63360, 3 bike model # S63365 or 4 bike model, as part # S63380. The racks include an anti rattle hitch bolt, but I'd recommend adding a locking hitch bolt/cable lock...

  • The Thule Hitching Post Pro part # TH934XTR would be a great fit for a Class III hitch installed on your 2014 Nissan Murano and would easily carry 3 bikes. All you would need to lock the rack to your vehicle would be the locking hitch pin part # THSTL2. The cable lock # TH538XT would then allow you to lock the bikes to the rack.

  • First, the pros and cons of each type of rack: hanging versus platform. Pros for Hanging: Lighter weight Easier to store Easier to install/remove Less extension from back of vehicle Cons for Hanging: Not compatible with all bike styles unless using bike adapter bar Can be difficult to load multiple bikes because of spacing Have to lift bikes higher Bikes can move if no anti-sway cradles Pros for Platform: Accept many different bike styles Don't have to lift...

Hidden Hitch trailer hitch # 87486 is a Class III trailer hitch with a 2 inch receiver so the rack will fit the hitch, no problem. There are 2 types of 1-1/4 inch hitch: a Class I and a Class II. Class I hitches have a very low capacity and are usually found on small vehicles that cannot do any towing. There are safety features built into a Class I...

  • The Thule Doubletrack Platform-Style 2 Bike Carrier, Part # TH990XT is a good fit for your 2013 Nissan Murano. It will carry 2 bikes with almost any frame design. It has a lock system that secures the bikes to the carrier and folds down to allow access to the vehicle rear cargo area. I have attached an installation video for this carrier on a Murano you can check out. Another platform carrier I recommend is the Saris Thelma 2-Bike Rack, part # SA4229B. This carrier has large...

  • Owners of the 2013 Nissan Murano most often purchase the Thule Doubletrack, # TH990XT. This is a platform style bike rack that will fit 1-1/4 inch or 2 inch trailer hitch. It holds 2 bikes using wheel cradles and hooks that hold down the centers of the bike frames. I have included a link to a video of this rack on a 2013 Murano for you. The rack weighs around 45 pounds so it isn't the heaviest rack but it isn't the lightest either. I have found that platform racks in general...

  • There are some great 2-bike platform racks that will tilt and fold that you can use with your 2012 Nissan Murano. The trick is to find one that will clear the rear bumper when the rack is folded up. On the trailer hitches that we have installed on the 2012 Murano the distance from the center of the pin hole back to clear the rear bumper was approximately 5 inches. You will want to take this measurement on your vehicle to see if it is the same. The Kuat Sherpa # SH22G measures...

You will really like this rack. The four easily adjustable straps will make it easier to install than the other racks that use 6 straps...

  • We do have trunk mount bike racks that are a confirmed fit your 2012 Nissan Murano. I recommend going with the Hollywood Racks Over-the-Top Bike Carrier, which is specially designed for vehicles with hatchbacks with spoilers like your Murano. For the 2-bike carrier you will want part # HRF2. For a 3-bike rack you will want part # HRF2-3.

  • Yes, you can use Thule EasyFold bike carrier # TH9032 with the Curt Class III trailer hitch on your 2012 Nissan Murano to carry your 2 electric bikes. This carrier has a 132 pound capacity (66 pounds per bike). I have included a link to a video review of this carrier for you. There are no electric connections for this carrier. You should not need to add any other parts. The arms that hold the bike frames can move so the step-through frame design should not be an issue.

Place the upper strap hooks at the top edge of trunk. Outer/lower support frame rests on the lower portion of the license plate or well. When bikes are loaded, retension straps...
