Swagman Hitch Bike Racks Review - 2015 Nissan Rogue

In this 2015 Nissan Rogue, you're going to be testing the inaudible 00:00:04 xe 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. The first feature I'd like to show off is how it's actually attached to the rack. We only have really one point of contact, and that's going to be a frame hook up at the top, which is padded to make sure that there's going to be no scratching or anything like that when you install your bike onto this rack. We also have these adjustable wheel cradles at the bottom here. Just loosen up these knobs. They can move along the length of the bike rack, and this is going to assist with loading it up, and it also can accommodate different size bikes as well. Let's go ahead and take the bike off and set it aside.



Softride Element-Parallelogram Hitch Bike Racks Review - 2015 Nissan Rogue

Today on our 2015 Nissan Rogue, we're going to be test fitting the Softride Element Parallelogram Tilting 4-Bike Rack, part number SR26248. We already have a bike on the rack. Let's go ahead and take a closer look and show off some of the features. Now, the most prominent feature of this rack is the fact that this can tilt away from the vehicle with the bikes still attached, which is pretty unique for a hanging style bike rack. How it does that is, you come to this black handle on the other side of the mast, pull out like so, and just let it come to you. With it in this position, we now have full access to the rear hatch to get whatever it is we need and plenty of space on either side to do so as you can see here. To put it back in its original position, just simply push back up and it will lock back into place.

Today on our 2015 Nissan Rogue we're going to be test-fitting the Yakima RidgeBack 4-Bike Rack for 1 1/4" and 2" hitches, 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. Now the first feature I'd like to show off is it has these nice, cushioned pads here, which is going to make it really nice for your bike once you put it on, so it won't get scratched, and it has these zip strips that are a lot easier to install than regular rubber straps that you have on a lot of other bike racks. It has bottle openers on either ends of the arms. It also comes, when you're using just one bike, with this front wheel strap here to keep the wheels all in place. Now, if you we're to have all 4 bikes on here, you actually have a longer strap that would go through all 4 and tighten up. Let's go ahead and take the bike off and set it aside.

Let's go ahead and take a closer look and show off some of the features. How this bike attach to the rack, we're going to have 3 points of contact with the bike's frame. We're going to have 2 ZipStrips up at the top here and then 1 off to the side, which is going to serve as an anti-sway strap to keep the bike from moving too far back and forth, hitting onto the bike rack or the bikes in front of it. Also on the backside here, we have an integrated cable lock that you wrap around the bikes and attach to this point here for additional security. Let's go ahead and take the bike off and set it aside. To do that, on the ZipStrips on either side of them there are these tabs.



Kuat NV Hitch Bike Racks Review - 2016 Nissan Rogue

Today on this 2016 Nissan Rogue we're going to be test fitting the Kuat NV 4-Bike Platform Rack, part number N105-107. As you can see we already have a bike attached to the rack. Let's go ahead and take a closer look and show off some of the features. Now, the first feature is going to be the fact that it can tilt away from the vehicle with the bike still attached to it. To do that, we'll go to the passenger here where there's a silver handle. We'll pull that out while holding onto the bike rack and gently let it come forward. With that done, we can actually have full access to our rear hatch to get whatever we need.

As you can see we already have a bike attached to the bike rack. Let's go over and look at a couple of key features. We have three points of contact where the bike is secured. We have two here at the top with these rubber strips, and then we have another one here on this frame post which will help prevent swaying, which can cause the bike to come in contact with the carrier itself or another bike in front of it.

Then we'll just press down on the sides to form it to our vehicle. As you can see, our edges are raised up. As it sits in your car more and your get some heat on it and some cargo on it, it is going to form and contour to your vehicle a lot better. The entire bottom portion of our liner is texturized, so it's going to prevent any slipping and movement of your cargo.



Kuat Hitch Bike Racks Review - 2016 Nissan Rogue

One of the nice features about this rack is we can gain access to the rear hatch while our bike is still on it by pressing down this lever here in the front of it, lowering the assembly arm down and we will have full access to the hatch to put anything in or get anything else that we may need. Let's close this up. Raise this back into position.



Softride Element-Parallelogram Hitch Bike Racks Review - 2016 Nissan Rogue

Today on our 2016 Nissan Rogue, we'll be having a look at the Softride Element Parallelogram Tilting 4 Bike Rack for inch and quarter and two inch hitches. One thing about hanging bike racks is normally you can't fold the rack down to gain access to the rear hatch of your vehicle once the bike is installed. However, on this particular model you can. In order to do that, there is a black handle on the right hand side of it, just go ahead and pull it out and lower it on down. With that down, as you can see, we have full access to the rear of our vehicle to get anything in and out that we may need. Just go ahead and close this up and get this back into normal position for going down the road. Once you hear that click, it is back in the upright and locked position. The bike is held in place with two rubber straps here in the front, here in the back.



Thule Hitch Bike Racks Review - 2016 Nissan Rogue

Today on this 2016 Nissan Rogue, we're going to be test fitting the Thule T2 Pro 2-Bike Rack, part number TH9034. As you can see we already had a bike installed on the rack. Let's go ahead and show off some of the features. Now, the main feature of this is the fact that it can tilt away from the vehicle with the bike still attached. To do this, you go to the front here on this gray handle, pull in like that, holding onto the bike rack, letting it come down, and now we have full access to the rear hatch to get whatever we need. Now, one of the advantages of this rack is the fact that it has this handle on the end as opposed to trying to go through the bikes to get to that handle. Lift it back in place and it's locked in. How the bike is actually attached to the rack, there's going to be no actual frame contact with this.





Nissan Rogue Questions

  • Roof rails on your 2013 Rogue are a factory-only option. We cannot offer these rails themselves on an aftermarket basis. However, we can offer you several options for roof racks that can be fitted to a 2013 Nissan Rogue with a naked roof (meaning a roof with no factory-installed side rails or crossbars). Differences between products suitable for your Rogue will include shape, length and color of the crossbars, weight capacity of the rack system, and how quiet the rack is...

  • When you go to change the lock cylinders on your roof rack to the cylinders of the Thule Locking Cylinders 4 Pack # TH544 you will insert the included universal change key into an unlocked cylinder that is currently in your roof rack and then remove the cylinder. It may take a little bit of wiggling for the cylinder to work itself loose, but when the change key is inserted into the lock cylinder the cylinder will be free to slide out. Next, you will insert the change key into...

  • If the tires are in bad shape just by replacing them with new tires and having them inflated properly will improve your ride quality. The 5.30x12 is the widest and biggest tire available for your rim size so to go to a bigger tire you would need to upgrade the rim as well, which before you do that you will need to consider the clearances you have on your trailer and if a wider and/or taller tire would fit. The next biggest size would be the 175/80R13 which would be about 3...

  • Since your 2012 Nissan Rogue has a rear spoiler the only trunk mount bike racks I recommend are the Hollywood Racks Over-the-Top rack # HRF2 for 2 bikes and # HRF2-3 for 3 bikes. This rack has an additional upper arm piece that moves the top straps up and over that spoiler so no weight is put on it (since the spoiler is not meant to support weight). I have included a link to a video that shows how it works. If you will be carrying any bikes that do not have a top frame bar...

  • When selecting a bike carrier for your vehicle there is an important measurement you need to know. That is the distance from the center of the hitch pin hole on the trailer hitch receiver to the most rearward part of the vehicle, whether it is the rear bumper or perhaps a rear mounted spare tire. The Draw-Tite Trailer Hitch, part # 75902 sticks out the most of the trailer hitches we offer, and the hitch I recommend for your Rogue. This is a Class lll hitch and it has a 2 inch...

  • Draw-Tite and Hidden Hitch are sister companies so the Draw-Tite Max-Frame Class III Trailer Hitch Receiver, # 75902, and the Hidden Hitch Class III Hitch Receiver, # HH87663, for the 2015 Nissan Rogue are basically the same hitch. Either one would work for you. If you plan on towing you might be interested in etrailer ball mount kit # 989900. It comes with 2 ball mounts; one with a 3/4 inch rise or 2 inch drop and one with a 2-3/4 inch rise or 4 inch drop. It also includes...

  • The Tow Ready T-One Wiring Harness, # 118480, and the Curt T-Connector Wiring Harness, # C56033, are basically the same harness from two different manufacturers. The main difference between these two harnesses is Curt uses surface-mount technology (SMT), a newer technology from the older through-hole technology. The Curt harness also has higher amp ratings of 3 amps per circuit for the stop and turn lights and 6 amps per circuit for the tail lights. The Tow Ready harness only...

  • You are correct, the Hidden Hitch trailer hitch # HH87663 and Draw-Tite trailer hitch # 75902 do stick out further than the Curt trailer hitches for your 2014 Nissan Rogue. On both hitches, they stick out 2-1/4 inches further. Both hitches do have the same dimensions. From the center of the hitch pin hole back to clear the rear bumper is approximately 5-3/4 inches. And on the Yakima RidgeBack 5, # Y02459, it measures 12 inches from the center of the hitch pin hole to the back...

  • If you have ever registered the trailer before then the DMV should have it on file and you could get the VIN from them. Otherwise you will have to have a highway patrol officer inspect the trailer and assign a VIN. You might need to contact your local DMV to make sure this practice is done in your state. I am not sure what the laws are in Australia but I am assuming you need the VIN in order to ship the trailer to Australia and not necessarily to register the trailer in Australia.

  • According to the information that I was able to obtain from an online owner's manual, the 2015 Nissan Rogue is going to have a tongue weight capacity of 110 lbs. Even though a hitch like the Hidden Hitch, # HH87663, offers a tongue weight capacity of 350 lbs, you will be bound by the component with the lesser rating which would be the Rogue.

  • I recommend the Hidden Hitch Trailer Hitch, part # HH87663 for your 2015 Nissan Rogue. The attached photo shows the distance from the hitch pin hole to the rear edge of the back bumper is 5-1/2 inches. This is a Class lll hitch and it has a 2 inch receiver opening. I have also attached a link to an installation video for this hitch on a 2015 Rogue you can check out. I have attached a couple of links to some of the items we offer for a trailer hitch you may want to take a...

  • First off, the 9 must represent the wheel diameter, which is an odd size. So if 9 is the diameter that would make 4-1/2 and 5-1/2 the width. The diameter is not the actual overall diameter of the wheel, it is the diameter of where the tire sits on the wheel. And the width is not the overall width, it is the interior width where the tire sits, from bead seat to bead seat. I have linked a video to the right as an example. In it our tire and wheel expert explains the measurements. I...

  • I would recommend the Hidden Hitch Class III 2 Inch Hitch, part # HH87663, for your 2011 Nissan Rogue SV. This is a 2 inch hitch with a towing weight capacity of 3,500 lbs. and a tongue weight capacity of 300 lbs. The 2 inch size hitch is the most common. The Draw-Tite Class II 1-1/4 Inch Hitch, part # 36542, you have referenced is a Class II trailer hitch. The 1-1/4 inch receiver will limit your choices of hitch accessories and if you decide to tow a small trailer in the future,...

  • The Rola roof rack part # 59824 that you referenced has been confirmed as a fit for your 2009 Nissan Rogue. The Bike Carrier # RBC035 that you referenced has been confirmed as a fit for the Rola Sport Bars like the part # 59824 so it will work well.

  • I will be happy to help you. First, if your 2015 Nissan Rogue does not already have a trailer hitch you will need one. I recommend Draw-Tite trailer hitch # 75902. This is a Class III trailer hitch with a 2 inch receiver. This is what you will need for the type of bike carrier you are looking for. I have linked a video showing how the hitch installs. For a bike carrier that will allow you to open the rear hatch with or without the bikes loaded I recommend the Vertex swinging...

  • You would not be able to tell that the underbody panels have been removed on your 2014 Nissan Rouge unless you were under the vehicle. There are two pieces that will need to be removed. Check out the picture I attached to see the two pieces that get removed. All the necessary hardware to install this hitch is included. I also attached a link to installation instructions for you to check out also.

  • The 1-1/4-inch Class II trailer hitch # 36542 is a confirmed bolt-on, no-drill installation on your 2016 Nissan Rogue. I linked our install video. The Thule Roadway 2 Bike Rack # TH912XTR will work fine in this hitch, but for the best safety margin I suggest that instead you install a 2-inch Class III hitch # 75902. This offers 50-lbs more tongue weight capacity (downward force on the hitch) and it only costs a few dollars more. Installation will be virtually identical for the...

  • Hidden Hitch and Draw-Tite are sister companies. The Hidden Hitch # HH87663 and Draw-Tite # 75902 are basically the same. The design, appearance, build quality, finish, install method and weight capacities are identical. Both hitch crossbars are constructed of square-tube steel. The installation instructions and video that I have attached will apply to both hitches on your 2012 Nissan Rogue. I would recommend going with the Hidden Hitch Trailer Hitch, # HH87663, because it...

  • The purpose of the underbody panels on modern vehicles including your 2014 Nissan Rogue is to aid in decreasing wind resistance while traveling at highway speeds to increase gas mileage and to give a cleaner look underneath the car. Some of those panels will need to be permanently removed in order to install the Curt Hitch part # C13204 that you referenced. Honestly though, you should not see any change in your fuel mileage. I attached an install video for this hitch. For...

  • According to the owner's manual for your 2015 Rogue, the maximum towing capacity of your vehicle is 1100 lbs GTW (gross trailer weight) and 110 TW (tongue weight). The trailer hitch and ball mount you use might have higher ratings than that, but you'll always be limited to the capacity of whatever the lowest rated component of the towing system. This means that the weight of any cargo carrier you use and the cargo placed in or on it cannot weigh more than 110 lbs. Since the...
