Kuat Hitch Bike Racks Review - 2016 Buick Enclave

Today on our 2016 Buick Enclave, we're doing a test fit of Kuat NV 2.0 platform style two bike rack. That part number is NV22G. Now we already have our bike secured down. We're first going to show you one of the key features of this rack. We're going to come here to the center. We're going to pull down on the lever, that's going to allow us to tilt our bike rack with our bikes fully loaded away from our vehicle.



Yakima HoldUp Hitch Bike Racks Review - 2016 Buick Enclave

Today on our 2016 Buick Enclave we're doing a test fit of the Yakima HoldUp platform-style 2-bike rack. That part number is Y02443. Now we already have our bike secured down. We're first going to show you one of the key features of this rack. We're going to come to the back and lift up and then pull out on the red pin closest to our vehicle. That's going to allow us to tilt our bike rack away from our vehicle.



Yakima Hitch Bike Racks Review - 2016 Buick Enclave

Today on our 2016 Buick Enclave, we're doing a test fit of the Yakima LiteRider hanging-style two-bike rack. That part number is Y02472. Now, we already have our bike secured down. We're first going to show you how we secure it into place. We have two cradles in place with three straps, two on our frame and one as anti-sway strap in the back. These are also known by Yakima as zip strips.



Swagman Hitch Bike Racks Review - 2012 Buick Enclave

Today on this 2012 Buick Enclave we're going to be test fitting the Swagman Dispatch 2 bike platform rack, part number S64684. We already have a bike installed on the rack, let's go and take a closer look and show off some of the features. Now how this bike attaches to the rack, there's 3 points of contact. We're going to have this padded frame hook up at the top and that's to make sure your bike doesn't get scratched once it's installed. We also have these wheel cradles here with these straps and that's to keep those in place. They also are adjustable to accommodate different sized bikes. This bike rack also has a nice high clearance here so for those vehicles where the hitch sits lower to the ground, you're going to have the issue between the back rack and the ground. Let's go ahead and take the bike off and set it aside. First, we'll go ahead and loosen up the straps on the side here by pushing in the tab at the top, loosening them up. Now before we release the frame hook you want to make sure you're holding onto the bike so it doesn't going falling into the vehicle once you release it.



Hollywood Racks Sport-Rider-2 Hitch Bike Racks Review - 2012 Buick Enclave

Today on our 2012 Buick Enclave, we're going to be testing the Hollywood Racks Sport Rider 2-Bike Rack. Part number HR1000. We already have a bike installed on the rack, so let's go ahead and take a closer look and show off some of the features. Now the first and most prominent feature of this bike rack is the fact that you can tilt this away from the vehicle with the bike still attached. To do that, we'll remove these two pins just under the front of the bike. These can kind of be a little difficult to get to with two bikes on. Just kind of keep the balance with your hand, always holding onto the bike rack, never the bike.



Kuat Hitch Bike Racks Review - 2012 Buick Enclave

Today on our 2012 Buick Enclave, we're going to be test fitting the Kuat NV 2.0 bike rack. Part number NV 22G. We already have a bike installed on the rack. Let's go ahead and take closer look and show off some of the features. The most prominent feature of this bike rack, is the fact that it can tilt away from the vehicle with the bike still attached, so you can get to the rear hatch. To do that, we have this lever at the front. You just pull towards you while holding on to the bike rack, and let it come down.



Swagman Hitch Bike Racks Review - 2012 Buick Enclave

Today on our 2012 Buick Enclave, we're going to be test fitting the Swagman XC 2-Bike Rack, part number S64650. We already have a bike installed on the rack. Let's go ahead and take a closer look and show off some of the features. How this bike actually attaches to the rack, we're going to have 1 point of contact, and that's going to be the frame hook up at the top here, which is padded so your bike will not get scratched once it's installed. We also have these adjusting wheel cradles on either side. This is going to be able to adjust your wheel cradles to accommodate different size bikes and different style bikes. It also has this nice raised shank here, so when you have hitches that sit a little bit low to the ground you're not going to have a clearance issue between the bike rack and the ground. Let's go ahead and take the bike off and set it aside. You always want to hold onto the bike once you release the frame hook because you don't want it falling into the vehicle.



Yakima Hitch Bike Racks Review - 2012 Buick Enclave

Today on our 2012 Buick Enclave, we're going to be test fitting the Yakima LiteRider 2 Bike Rack, part number Y02472. As you can see, we already have a bike installed on the rack. Let's go ahead and take a closer look and show off some of the features. First on the back of the mast it actually has an integrated cable lock. You'll pop it like so, wrap it around your bikes, and attach it to this front portion here and lock it into place to prevent theft and tampering of your bikes. We have bottle openers on both ends of the arms and these nice cushioned pads for your bikes so they won't get scratched up once you install them. We also have these easy-to-use zip strips to tighten your bikes down. How it grips your bike, it's going to have 3 points of contact.



Yakima RidgeBack Hitch Bike Racks Review - 2012 Buick Enclave

Today on our 2012 Buick Enclave, we are going to be test fitting the Yakima RidgeBack 4 Bike Rack, part number Y02458. We already have a bike installed on the rack. Let's go ahead and take a closer look and show off some of the features. The first feature I'd like to show off is here on the back of the mast, we have this empty space here. Well you can actually remove that and replace it with an integrated cable lock if you'd like which you can find on etrailer.com. We have two bottle openers up at the front here on either arm. We have these nice cushion pads here so when you actually do sit your bikes on these, they're not going to get scratched up when you install them.



Curt Hitch Cargo Carrier Review - 2016 Buick Enclave

Today on our 2016 Buick Enclave, we're doing a test fit of the Curt 20 by 48 cargo carrier. That part number is C18110. Now, we already have this installed here. It's going to have a 300-pound weight capacity but it is very light weight so it's easy to insert and take out of your hitch. It works with both 1 1/4-inch and 2-inch hitches. Now, with it installed here, we're going to start off with a few measurements.

Buick Enclave Questions

  • You always want to have your trailer tires inflated to their max PSI rating. There is no exception for this for tandem axle trailers. Typically trailer tires fail due to excessive heat created by overloading, exceeding the speed rating (typically 65 mph), or under-inflation. The most likely situation is that you are exceeding the speed rating and that is causing the failure since you are above the weight rating for 4 Load Range C tires. So I would recommend the Taskmaster...

  • On any vehicle that has exhaust that exits straight out the back and not out the side or towards the ground could potentially damage a trailer hitch mounted item and its contents. I believe I have a great solution for you though. To get enough distance from the exhaust you can use multipurpose ball mount # D210 and that will get you plenty far from the exhaust. For a carrier, if using the multipurpose ball mount, you can use any carrier that fits a 2 inch receiver. The...

  • Yes, for your 2014 Buick Enclave and your Falcon 2 tow bar you will need base plates # 523149-1. I have linked the instructions and a video showing a typical installation for you. There are a few other things needed to flat tow a vehicle if you do not already have them: safety cables, lighting, and supplemental braking. For safety cables you can use # RM-643. The coiled design helps keep the cables off of the ground. For lighting there are a few options. If you will not...

  • The only difference between the Curt Trailer Hitch # 13084 and the Curt Trailer Hitch # 13160, is the shape of the tubing. Curt Trailer Hitch # 13084 has a square-tube design while the Curt Hitch # 13160 has a round-tube design. The square-tube hitch will be more visible on the back of your Jeep while the round-tube hitch will be tucked up just a little more. The round-tube hitch is designed to be a more sleek design. Both the Curt Hitch # 13084 and # 13160 have the same...

  • Both the Rola Cargo Carrier # 59502 and the Pro Series Cargo Carrier part # 63153 that you referenced would be an excellent choice. The biggest advantage I see for the Pro Series is weight. This carrier weighs 59 lbs whereas the Rola weighs 73 lbs. If the additional weight, price and slightly smaller interior dimensions aren't a problem for you I would go with the Rola. If you don't mind the less appealing looks of the Pro Series I would go with it since from a function point...

  • I have a solution for you, but the Carpod Walled Cargo Carrier # M2200-01-02 does not extend far enough out from the trailer hitch to fit well on your 2011 Buick Enclave. The trailer hitches we've installed on the Enclave required 5 inches of distance between the center of the hitch pin hole and the closest part of the carrier in order to clear the bumper. The # M2200-01-02 offers only 4 inches, meaning it would not work on your vehicle. Instead, the Carpod Walled, Folding...

  • Flat towing a vehicle such as your 2015 Buick Enclave requires 5 basic components. These are a tow bar, safety cables, a lighting kit, and base plates and a supplementary braking system for the towed car. Each is covered in the helpful article I have linked for you. You will want to check your Enclave owner's manual (usually under the heading recreational towing) to make sure that your particular car can be flat towed and what preparation steps, if any, are needed to make it...

  • Trailer wiring harness # 118270 will plug into a single connector on your 2013 Buick Enclave. You will need to locate the vehicle’s connector located under the Enclave on the passenger's side. Look for an opening to the right of the muffler. Reach up into opening to locate the grey connector. Disconnect the mating protective cover and discard. Connect the Enclave connector to the mating harness. All connector surfaces should be clean and free of dirt. Be careful not to damage...

  • For your 50-amp fuse you can use Blue Ox ByPass Switch # BX88274 and for your 15-amp mini fuse Blue Ox # BX88272. The Roadmaster FuseMaster Fuse Bypass Switch # RM76514 that you referenced does provide 2-fuse bypass capability but its amperage rating for both is 20-amps.

  • I generally prefer the Blue Ox base plates and tow bars, as they are typically less complicated to use with fewer parts. The correct base plate for your vehicle would be part # BX1708, and the Blue Ox Alpha, part # BX7365 would be my recommendation for a tow bar. The tow bar includes safety cables. You will also need a lighting solution so that the Enclave has taillights that work in tandem with those of the RV. There are three main types of systems to choose from. You...

  • The first thing you will need to do to install a complete 7-Way trailer wiring harness on a 2012 Buick Enclave without factory tow package wiring, is install a 4-Way trailer wiring harness, part # 118450, if the vehicle does not already have a working 4-Way connector. Next, you will need to install an electric brake controller installation kit, # ETBC7, to complete the wiring. Installing this kit will require you to hard wire the 12 volt power wire, brake controller output,...

  • We do have trailer hitches and wiring for your 2016 Buick Enclave. A popular option is Hidden Hitch trailer hitch # 87435. This is a Class III trailer hitch with a 2 inch receiver. I have linked a video showing an example installation of the hitch for you. For wiring you can use # 118270 to add a 4-Way flat trailer connector at the back of the vehicle. I have included a link to a video showing an example installation of the wiring as well. Since it sounds like you will be...

  • A magnetic kit like # C-ATL20A or a kit that fits in the hatch gap like # EZT20B would definitely work since they bypass the factory wiring. These kits are ideal if you will not be towing the vehicle very often. A more permanent alternative if you will be towing the Enclave frequently and that still bypasses the vehicle wiring is a bulb and socket kit, # RM-155. The only things to think about with this kit are the space needed for installation and the drilling required. You...

  • I spoke with my contact at Curt and the Custom Fit Trailer Hitch Receiver, #13424, fits the 2014, as well as the 2015 Buick Enclave. The wiring harness that you will need for your Enclave is the Curt T-Connector Vehicle Wiring Harness with 4-Pole Flat Trailer Connector, # C56202.

  • The power delivered on the 12V circuit of a 7-way trailer connector is enough to maintain a battery while you travel down the road, but this circuit does not have enough juice to re-charge a battery that has been depleted from use. Depleted batteries need a shore-powered charger like one of the CTEK units, such as # CTEK56864. Solar battery chargers like Performance Tool # PTW2997 can be used to provide a trickle charge to a battery mounted on a trailer but I do not recommend...

  • For the 2016 Thor Ace built on a Ford F-53 chassis the correct Roadmaster Reflex stabilizer is the part # RM-RBK9-RSSA. This will greatly help with sway from passing semi-trucks.

  • For your 2012 Enclave, I would recommend the Draw-Tite Class III Receiver, part # 75528. We do indeed sell the hitch, you can see it by clicking the provided link. The hitch would work very well with the Thule Parkway # TH956 you referenced, but I would like you to also take a look at the Thule Hitching Post Pro, part # TH934XTR. The Hitching Post Pro is very similar to the Parkway, but it offers additional features like folding arms that make storing the rack easier as well...

  • The Thule Vertex 5 Bike Rack # TH9030XT that you referenced would make an excellent choice for you to carry your 5 bikes. This rack has arcing arms that allow for faster and easier loading, more space between the bikes and puts them at different heights allowing the pedals and handlebars to be at different heights which will reduce contact between the bikes. I attached a review video for this product for you to check out. For childrens bikes we recommend you use a Thule Bike...

  • When determining fit of a given bike rack on a particular vehicle, it is important to determine the distance from the hitch pin hole of the installed hitch to the furthest rearward point of the back bumper (see photo.) We have completed installs of the Draw-Tite # 75528 and Curt # 13424 Class III receiver hitches on 2010 and 2012 Buick Enclave models. We have found that once the hitch is installed, this distance can vary from 3-3/4 inches to 5-1/4 inches depending on which...
