I have seen kits that allow you to carrie bikes on platform cargo carriers. Is there a kit for this cargo carrier or do you have a suggestion to allow me use this for bikes also. I need to maximize the number of bikes I can carry.
asked by: Joe
At this time the only cargo carrier available for 2 inch hitches with a recommended bike carrier is the Draw-Tite Cargo Carrier, # 6501, which is designed to accept the Bike Adapter For Cargo Carriers, # 6505. If you decide to go with this carrier you may also want to consider the cargo carrier light kit, # 6504.
The Pro Series Cargo Carrier, # 63153, is not designed for use with the bike adapter bar.
To Maximize the number of bikes you can carry, I would recommend a bike rack like the Thule Apex 5 Bike Carrier, item # TH9026. This would allow you to carry 5 bikes and the cradles on the rack will keep the bikes separated, eliminating damage to the bikes or their finish.
You will also need a bike adapter bar for each bike that does not have a top bar that will allow the bike to be carried level. The Thule Bike Adapter Bar, # TH982XT, would be a good choice. We have a video showing the use of this item for you to review, see link.
