2013 Toyota Highlander Hitch Bike Racks Questions

  • I am not sure what reviews you have seen but on our site the Thule lock, # THSTL2, has an average rating of 4.7 stars out of 5 over nearly 70 reviews. Bike rack manufacturers thread the racks and locks unique to their products. Other locks are not tested and are not likely to fit.

You will want to measure from the center of your hitch pin out to the furthest point out on the rear bumper. If that measurement is less than 7-1/4 inches this rack would work well for you. If you plan on carrying any womens or alternative framed bikes without horizontal...

2013 Toyota Highlander Trunk Bike Racks Questions

  • After doing some research on your vehicle, I found that there are no trunk mounted bike rack options available for your 2013 Toyota Highlander. Bike rack manufacturers have determined that it would be unsafe to use a trunk mounted bike rack on your rear hatch because the vehicle is unable to support the weight at the point where the carrier must be placed. It is likely due to the spoiler at the top of the rear hatch that you have referenced. These spoilers were not designed...

  • At this time we have one bike rack that will fit your 2013 Toyota Highlander and it is the Hollywood Racks Over-the-Top # HRF2. This bike rack is designed to go over the top of the spoiler at the top of your rear hatch so it will not damage your vehicle. The # HRF can accommodate 2 bikes at 35 lbs per bike. The Thule Raceway Platform # TH9003PRO will not fit because of the spoiler the Highlander has at the top of the rear hatch. Thule does not have a trunk mount bike rack that...
