I ordered a Thule bike rack this summer and was pleased with your service and the product. Your web site is well designed and provides more product information than can be found on other sites. The videos are very helpful, providing the 'touch and feel' that is often missing when purchasing via the internet. With this order, you have exceeded my expectations. I am leaving town for a Christmas trip next Friday, which is why I have ordered the carrier.
Today on our 2009 Chrysler Town and Country, well be test fitting the Thule Hitching Post, part number TH934XTR. And to being our test fit, well simply slide our bike rack shank into the hitch and lineup the hitch pin hole and install and tighten down our anti-rattle bolt. With our anti-rattle bolt tight, our bike rack is secured to the vehicle. Now well go ahead and give you a few measurements. Our ground clearance at the bike rake is 11 and a quarter inches and from the closest point of the bike rake to the back of the vehicle is four and a half inches. Well now go ahead and pull the pin at the bottom of the bike rack mast to allow the mast to tilt down.
Today on our 2009 Chrysler Town and Country, well be test fitting the Swagman xtc2 two bike carrier for both inch and a quarter and two inch hitches, part number s64670. Now with our adapter already installed on the bike rack shank, we can go ahead and slide the shank to the hitch, line up the hitch pin hole, and install and tighten down our anti-rattle bolt. With our bolt tight our bike rack is secured to the vehicle. Well now go ahead and give you a few measurements, our ground clearance at the bike rack is 15-1/2 inches and from the closet point of the bike rack to the back of the vehicle is 2-1/2 inches. Well now go ahead and unfold the bike platform and open our cargo door, and as you can see we can gain full access to the cargo area opening our cargo door completely with this bike rack. At this point were now almost ready to load our bike, we only need to make sure that our vertical bar clamps are fully extended and that our wheel loop straps are undone and out of the way.
