  • Will Hollywood Racks Over-the-Top 2 Bike Carrier # HRF2 Fit a 2014 Subaru Forester with Spoiler
  • The unique Hollywood Racks Over-the-Top 2 Bike Carrier # HRF2 is a superb option for vehicles like your Forester that have a spoiler. Its specialized design avoids placing any stress on the spoiler, which is of course not designed to bear any weight. The # HRF2 does not include locks but we offer Dead Bolt cable lock # CAB-10 to secure your bikes to the rack. We also offer passive security straps to deter theft of the rack itself, including # Y02623 from Yakima and # TH533 from Thule. If y

  • Will a Thule AeroBlade Edge Roof Rack Fit a Base Model 2014 Subaru Forester
  • As long as your 2014 Subaru Forester has the factory side rails that run front to back you can install the Thule AeroBlade Edge roof rack, # TH7502-TH7502. I have included a link to a video showing installation of the rack on a 2013 Forester. Installation on a 2014 would be the same. If your Forester does not have the side rails that run front to back then to add an AeroBlade Edge roof rack you will need to use crossbars and feet # TH7602-TH7602 and Podium foot pack # THKIT3079.

  • Hitch Recommendations for a 2014 Outback and Forester for a Bike Rack
  • There are 2 inch hitches available for both the 2014 Subaru Forester and Outback Wagon. Either vehicle will work as well as the other in terms of installing a 2 inch hitch to carry a bike rack. If I were you I would not base your choice between the vehicles on anything hitch or bike related. Curt hitches that are not rated for use with weight distribution systems do require the use of a stabilizer strap like part # 18050. This is a Curt only deal, if you bought the Forester and were to get a

  • Can a Canoe Carried on the Roof be Tied Down to a Trailer Hitch on a 2011 Subaru Outback Wagon
  • You can tie off the bow or stern of the canoes to a single point such as the safety chain loop on a trailer hitch or a tow hook. Provided that the canoe is secured to a safe place at the front and rear of the vehicle and cannot come loose and does not affect normal use of the vehicle you ca attached then wherever you want. Thule also has a neat item, quick loops # TH530. These tie downs have a cylinder that you would close under the hood or trunk of a vehicle while leaving the strap part hang

  • Will Kuat Sherpa Bike Rack Clear the Back of 2014 Subaru Outback with Hidden Hitch Trailer Hitch
  • When we installed the Hidden Hitch trailer hitch # 87568 on a 2012 Subaru Outback Wagon, same generation as your 2014, it measured 5-3/4 inches from the center of the hitch pin hole to that back of the vehicle. The Kuat Sherpa, # S101, measures 10-1/2 inches from pin hole to the carrier when folded down, 7-3/4 inches when folded up. Based on these numbers it will clear the back of your Outback with no problem. I have linked a video review of the bike rack and a video showing installation of t

  • Troubleshooting Trailer Wiring Harness Shorting Out on a 2002 Subaru Impreza WRX Sport Wagon
  • First thing you need to do is figure out where the short is on your 4x8 trailer and fix it before you install another wiring harness on your 2002 Subaru Impreza otherwise you will just fry another converter. That's why you are having problems, it has nothing to do with your vehicle. Once you get that situation figured out I would recommend you go with another Curt wiring harness.

  • Are Crossbars Required to Carry a Rooftop Carrier on a 2014 Subaru Forester
  • All rooftop cargo boxes and cargo baskets require crossbars that run side to side on the vehicle roof. There are some rooftop cargo bags that sit directly on the vehicle roof and do not require crossbars. The 2014 Subaru Forester came with three different roof options. Your Forester could have a bare roof, factory raised side rails that run front to back or a factory roof rack with crossbars. If your Forester has a factory roof rack with crossbars, then you will not need additional crossbars

  • Installation Method for the Surface Mount Ring Tie Down # HW03-040 On a Trailer with Metal Studs
  • If you can, I would recommend you anchor the # HW03-040 to the steel studs of your trailer. We don't have recommended hardware for this product because every application might require different installation methods. The best recommendation I could give you would be to determine what the best, most secure way you could attach the # HW03-040 to your steel studs and then find the appropriate hardware to complete the install. I would look into a medium sized self-tapping bolt that would fit the

  • Swingaway Bike Rack Recommendation for a 2014 Subaru Outback Wagon That Clears the Bumper
  • I recommend returning your Thule Apex to and get a the Vertex, # TH9031 instead. The biggest reason is that by using any type of extender or adapter you will reduce the tongue weight capacity of the hitch by 50 percent and that could create too much stress on the hitch and can damage it and the vehicle. The Vertex does not have the same hitch pin design and should clear your bumper without issue. The similarities between the two racks also means that you are not losing too many features an

  • Offset Spare Tire Carrier for a 16 Inch Spare Tire from a 2010 Subaru Outback Wagon
  • Based on the measurements you have provided it is not likely that spare tire carrier # FHDSTC0101 is going to work with the wheel and tire you measured. This carrier only will fit a 5-lug wheel if it has a 5 on 4-1/2 bolt pattern. The measurement from hole to adjacent hole for this bolt pattern would be 2-5/8 inches which is 5/16 of an inch more than what you have measured. If you happen to have a free 2 inch trailer hitch receiver, the best option is going to be Curt spare tire carrier # C31

  • Trailer Hitch Mount Bike Rack for a 2014 Subaru Forester with Factory 1-1/4 Inch Trailer Hitch
  • If your 2014 Subaru Forester has the factory installed 1-1/4 inch trailer hitch then you will have problems with nearly all bike racks designed to fit in a Class I trailer hitch. The issue is that the hitch pin hole is very close to the end of the receiver. This means that there will not be much of the bike rack shank in the receiver to support the rack. The good news is that Yakima bike racks, that normally do not fit Class I trailer hitches, will still work just fine. For a Yakima rack that

  • Hitch Recommendation for a 2009 Subaru Legacy Sedan to Carry a Scooter Carrier
  • The Hidden Hitch part # 87446 that you referenced is the correct hitch for your 2009 Subaru Legacy Sedan. This hitch has a tongue weight capacity of 400 lbs, so that means that if the weight of your 290 lb scooter and carrier together weighs less than 400 lbs this hitch should work well for you. Basically if your carrier weighs less than 110 lbs (which it should) you would be fine. However, you need to also check the owners manual of your vehicle and determine what Subaru lists as the tongue

  • Recommendations for Carrying 4 Bikes on a 2013 Subaru Impreza Hatch with a Class I Hitch
  • You have options to carry 4 bikes on your vehicle, but since you have a Class I hitch you will be limited to only carrying 2 bikes on the hitch of your 2013 Subaru Impreza Outback. Class I hitches cannot handle the increased weight and leverage that comes with carrying more than 2 bikes. Also if you were to use a hitch adapter to go from a 1-1/4 inch hitch to a 2 inch hitch then you reduce the capacity of the hitch by 50%.

This basket is confirmed to fit crossbars that are up to 3 inches wide and 1-5/8 inches tall. The spread of the crossbars must also be 15, 22 or 29 inches apart measured on center.

  • Trailer Hitch Mount Platform Bike Rack for a Step-Through Frame Bike and 2014 Subaru Forester
  • First, highway driving should actually be less stressful on the rack than surface road driving because there tends to be less curves, bumps, pot holes, and other similar things you would find on the streets. Any of the racks you are interested in should have no issues on the freeway. Stability: platform bike racks are going to move around. This is because of their design. You have long platforms extending out from the center of the hitch with weight on them. There is going to be some movement

This rack also holds up to 3 bikes, can tilt, and features anti-sway cradles and a rise in the shank for better ground clearance. I have included a link to the installation details for you.

To determine if there would be any bumper interference you will need to take an important measurement. Measure from the center of the hitch pin hole straight back to the distance required to clear the rear of the vehicle. If this distance is less that 14-3/8 inches then the rack will clear the rear of the vehicle. I have included a pict

  • On the Kuat Beta bike rack # B202-114 from the end of the shank that fits into the hitch receiver to the center of the pin hole is 1-3/8 inches. Because the pin hole on the OEM Subaru hitch is so close to the end of the receiver, this means that not very much of the bike rack shank would be in the receiver. Because of that it would not be supported well and I do not recommend it. This is sort of a strange case because the hitch is a Class I. But on this particular Class I hitch, a Yakima bike

  • What is the Difference Between the Sportrack Platform Bike Racks # SR2901 and # SR2901LR
  • The biggest difference between the SportRack EZ Bike Rack part # SR2901LR and the SportRack Bike rack # SR2901 is the # SR2901LR has locking, ratcheting arms that make installing and removing bikes much easier. The # SR2901 uses tightening knobs that will take longer to install and remove bikes and are not locking to act as a theft deterrent. Both of these racks will add 22 inches to the overall length of your vehicle. To determine how high your bikes will be above the ground you will need to

  • Is a 30 Inch Bar Spread on a 2014 Subaru Outback Enough for a 32 Foot Racing Boat Shell
  • Technically, yes, a 30 inch spread is the minimum for watercraft over 14 feet, but 32 feet is very long and I do not recommend the crossbars alone to support the shell. I strongly advise getting additional support given the length of your racing boat shell. This is actually going to be easy. All you have to do is install a Class III trailer hitch, # 87568. Then you can use Thule Goalpost, # TH997. This will provide much more support and stability than just 2 crossbars on the roof.

  • Would the Thule Force XXL Clear the Rear Hatch of a 2014 Subaru Forester
  • To determine if you have the clearance to install a Thule Force XXL on the Aeroblade Crossbars of your 2014 Forester you will need to measure from the center of your front crossbar back to the hatch or the antenna (whichever you think would interfere first). With that figure you can determine if the part # TH626 would fit your vehicle without interference. The # TH626 requires 58-1/8 inches of clearance. So if the dimension you found was more than that this box would work well. I attached

For the wagon with the flush rails you will need to use a Yakima roof rack made of the following parts: Yakima RailGrab Towers # Y00138. These towers will clamp onto the flush side rails.

Either one will fit the 1-1/4 inch Class I trailer hitch on your vehicle. I also recommend a hitch lock, # RH2-XL, to secure the cover in the hitch and to deter theft.

  • Would Yakima Holdup Bike Rack # Y02443 Clear the Rear Bumper of a 2010 Subaru Forester when Folded
  • The Yakima Holdup part # Y02443 should clear the bumper of your 2010 Subaru Forester but to be certain you will need to measure from the center of the hitch pin out to the furthest point out on the rear bumper. Most of the time we have seen this measurement as about 4 inches on similar Foresters as yours, and the bike rack has a distance of 7 inches from the center of the hitch pin to the nearest portion of the rack when folded so it should work. But please check your clearance to be certain.
