Questions from Nissan Xterra owners about this product


  • Platform Bike Rack Recommendation for a 2009 Nissan Xterra to Carry a Day 6 DreamE Electric Bike
  • I would recommend going with the Hollywood Racks Sport Rider, # HR1000, for your Day 6 DreamE electric bicycle, as long as the wheel base on the DreamE is not longer than 60 inches. I did a bit of research and could not come up with a definite number for your bikes wheel base, but I believe it is somewhere around 51 or 52 inches. When using this rack you will need to remove the battery because the rack is rated for 2 bikes at 50 lbs each. This is the only rack we carry at this time that...

Questions from Nissan Xterra owners about this product


  • Best Trunk Mount Bike Rack for 2003 Nissan Xterra
  • If you're looking for a rack that will be used occasionally, there are many racks that would work great for you, including the Thule Passage # TH910XT you mentioned. This type of rack uses a 6 strap/buckle/hook arrangement to attach to the vehicle. The attachment system works pretty well, but it's not very quick, easy or convenient. The Thule Raceway 2, part # TH9001XT uses 4 attachment cables that retract with a twist of a knob, which allows the rack to be installed or removed in moments....

Questions from Nissan Xterra owners about this product


  • Using Swagman Rooftop Bike Carrier # S64720 with Factory Crossbars on 2007 Nissan Xterra
  • The cross bars on your Nissan Xterra are too large for the Swagman Rooftop Bike Carrier to attach directly to them. Thule makes a Ride On Adapter, part # TH532 and a long bolt set, # THXADAPT7 that will allow the rack to be used with your cross bars. Take a look at the photo I produced, it will give you an idea of how the Ride On adapter will work with your existing crossbars. To see a video demonstrating how the Ride On Adapter works, click the provided link.

Questions from Nissan Xterra owners about this product


  • Will the Thule Archway Trunk Mount Bike Rack Fit a 2002 Nissan Xterra
  • The Thule Archway trunk mount bike rack # TH9010XT will fit your 2002 Nissan Xterra. The rack uses 6 straps to secure to the back of the vehicle. The initial set up will take the longest but after that it should only take a few minutes to get the rack on and probably half that time to remove it. But for the fastest and easiest rack to install or remove I recommend the Raceway 3, # TH9002PRO. I own this rack myself and it is the easiest rack I have used to install or remove. This is because...

With our Thule Rapid Crossroads Roof Rack already installed on our Xterra, we're going to begin our test fit by placing the bike rack directly onto our load bars.

With all four wing nuts here at the front tight, we'll move to the rear. Here we're going to take two carriage bolts, place them through the appropriate holes in the base of the rack, being sure that we have one coming out on each side of our load bar, we'll then take the black plastic spacer, place it between our load bar and our rack, being sure that our carriage bolts go through that, then we'll put on the black rubber coated metal portion of our clamp. This will go under our load bar, and we'll secure it in place using the two wing nuts. With these two wing nuts tight, our rack is secured to our vehicle and we're now ready to load our bike. We'll want to undo our rear wheel strap and open our front skewer. We'll then grab our bike, place it onto the rack, guiding the front forks down onto the skewer where we'll secure it first ...
