Rhino Rack Hitch Bike Racks Review - 2015 Honda CR-V

Today on our 2015 Honda CR-V, we're going to be doing a test fit of the Rhino-Rack hanging-style four-bike rack, part number RBC044. As you can see, we've already got our bike up here on our cradle arm so you can see what it's going to look like once we have it fully assembled and in place on the back of our vehicle. Now, note that this bike rack does come with an inch and a quarter shank as well as a 2-inch adapter, so you can use it with your class 1, 2, and 3 receivers. The thing you're going to keep in mind, though, if you do intend on using it with your class 1 receiver is that you're only going to be able to carry up to 2 bikes, and you're going to need to know your weight of your bikes, and that's going to correspond with the weight specifications of your class 1 receiver that you tend to use it on. Let's go ahead and start off by getting a few measurements. Our closest distance is going to be from the back side of the bumper to the front side of the rack at about 4-3/4 inches to this bracket here. Overall distance that we've added to the vehicle from the rear of the bumper to the back side of the cradle arms is going to be about 34-1/2 inches, and our ground clearance is going to be about 14-3/8 inches.
