Will a 2009 Hyundai Elantra sedan sedan support a 2 bike hitch mounted bike rack
asked by: Jim
Yes, your 2009 Hyundai Elantra will be able to support a 2-bike hitch mounted rack. But, you will be limited to a bike rack that is compatible with a 1-1/4 Class I hitch since all of the hitches available for your vehicle are Class I 1-1/4.
If you do not already have a hitch for your vehicle, I would recommend the Draw-Tite Trailer Hitch, part # 24795.
The item you selected Swagman Trailhead 2 Bike Carrier, part # S63360 would be a good option for a bike rack as it is compatible with Class I 1-1/4 hitches. This bike rack will also fit 2 inch hitches.
If you will be carrying womens, childrens or alternative framed bicycles, I would recommend the Swagman Frame Bike Adapter, part # 64005. This will allow you to carry bikes with this type of frame level on you bike rack.
I have linked instructions and a video installation of the Draw-Tite Trailer Hitch, part # 24795. Also linked are instructions for the Swagman Trailhead 2 Bike Carrier, part # S63360.
