Nissan Versa Hitch Bike Racks Questions

  • If you have a trailer hitch on your 2008 Nissan Versa, then it is most likely a Class I hitch with a 1-1/4 inch receiver. The Yakima DoubleDown 4 Bike Rack, # Y02424, that you referenced is for Class II 1-1/4 receivers only. Another issue that you will run into is that Class I hitches only have the ability to carry up to 2 bikes. The weight of 3 or more bikes will add additional leverage on the trailer hitch that could damage the bike rack, hitch or vehicle. It is similar to adding...

  • For a hanging style bike rack I would recommend the Thule Helium Aero part # TH9042. This rack has all of the features of the high end bike racks yet only weighs 25 lbs. Check out the review video I attached as well. For a platform rack I would recommend the Thule T2 part # TH917XTR. This rack only touches the bikes at the tire to secure them to the rack and also comes with locks to secure the bikes to the rack as well as secure the rack to your hitch just like the Helium.

  • The Nissan Versa uses a Class I receiver, which is only capable of carrying two bikes due to the limited tongue weight capacity of the receiver. The Helium Aero 3 Bike Model could certainly be used, but you would be limited to carrying two bikes when used in that receiver. To determine if the Helium is compatible with your Versa, you will need to measure the distance between the hitch pin hole in your receiver and the furthest rearward point of the rear bumper. If this distance...

Nissan Versa Roof Bike Racks Questions



Nissan Versa Trunk Bike Racks Questions

  • Thule does not exclude the 2007 Nissan Versa hatchback with a spoiler so you can use the Passage 2 # TH910XT. However, if the rack puts too much stress on that spoiler then you will need to go with a different rack; the Hollywood Racks Over-the-Top, # HRF2. The Over-the-Top rack has an extra structure that moves the upper straps up and over the rear spoiler so no tension is put on that spoiler. I have included a link to a video that shows how it works. If you will be carrying...

  • For a 3 bike rack that will fit both vehicles, the Yakima KingJoe Pro, # Y02625, is the way to go If you plan to carry womens, childrens, or alternative frame bicycles, I would recommend the Yakima Tube Top Bike Adapter Bar, part # Y02531.

  • Since your 2009 Nissan Versa hatchback has a rear spoiler, that will eliminate Thule racks as a fit. It is possible that you could use a Yakima rack depending on the type of spoiler on the vehicle. If there is space between the spoiler and the body of the vehicle where the straps can go through and not touch the spoiler, you could use the KingJoe Pro, # Y02624. If the spoiler is designed so that the straps would have to go over it and thus put stress on the spoiler, then you...

  • You are correct the Yakima SuperJoe and SuperJoe Pro bike racks do not fit a 2009 Nissan Versa 4-door or hatchback. Yakima does list the KingJoe Pro, # Y02624 as a fit. If you are looking for a more economical rack then the Thule Passage 2, # TH910XT, that you referenced would be the way to go. I have included some links on this bike rack for you. I have included a link to all of the trunk mount bike racks that will fit your Versa. If you will be carrying womens, childrens,...

  • The trunk rack that would work best on your 2011 Nissan Versa hatchback is the Hollywood Racks part # HRF2 bike rack which is designed specifically for vehicles with spoilers. However, since your vehicle has a soft bumper I would recommend going with a hitch and hitch mounted bike rack since this combination will not contact the vehicle at all. For a hitch you will want the Draw Tite Hitch part # 24798. For a bike rack the most popular one we offer is the Swagman XTC-2 bike...

  • Of the various trunk-mounted bike racks that are a fit for your Versa (see link provided), I can highly recommend the Thule Raceway, part # TH9001PRO. The Raceway uses 4 ratcheting cables to attach to the vehicle, instead of the difficult to uses 6 strap/buckle arrangement used by other racks. This system allows the rack to be installed or removed in a matter of seconds. Two of the ratcheting cables are lockable, and the rack also features an integrated cable lock to help deter...

  • I have included two links to the right. One is a list of trunk mount racks that fit the 2009 Nissan Versa sedan. The other link is for the hatchback models. Basically, all of the racks overlap in terms of fitting both the sedan and hatchback models. For an inexpensive 2-bike model you can use the Hollywood Racks Express, # HRE2. If you will be carrying any bikes that do not have a top frame bar that goes straight across (like a typical men's bike would) then I recommend...

  • Yes, I checked with Thule and the Thule Raceway Bike Rack part # TH9001PRO that you referenced is confirmed to fit your 2010 Nissan Versa hatchback. What makes this rack far superior to the others is the attachment system. It uses 4 retractable coated steel cables to attach to the vehicle rather than 6 nylon straps like other racks. This makes installation quick and easy and the cables also last longer. The cables store inside the rack so there are no loose straps ends to...

  • Yes, I checked with Yakima and the Yakima KingJoe Pro 2 Bike Rack # Y02624 that you referenced is confirmed to fit your 2012 Nissan Versa Hatchback. I attached a review video for this rack for you to check out also. If you plan on carrying any womens or alternative framed bikes without horizontal top tubes you may also be interested in purchasing a Yakima Tube Top Adapter Bar # Y02531 to provide a horizontal top tube on your bikes to provide an attachment point. I attached...

  • According to Thule, their trunk mount bike racks would fit a 4 or 5 door Versa that's equipped with a spoiler, as long as it's a factory and not an aftermarket installed spoiler. The Thule Passage, part # TH910XT would be a fine choice. The rack has enough arch on it that it will completely span the rear edge of the deck lid and clear the spoiler just fine. Even though the rack is reasonably priced, it's still a high quality rack that's highly rated by our customers as you...

  • I have attached a link to all of the truck mounted bike racks that have been confirmed to fit a 2013 Nissan Versa. You will just need to select the vehicle style to see the options that are available for your sedan. As for the book at the local dealer, we do not have, make, or print any type of book that is sent to dealers. You may have been looking at an outdated book from a specific bike rack manufacturer. Regarding the information on our site, it has been directly obtained...
