Saw the answer for 2009 Prius and wondering about 2005 model. Also, concerned about clearance for bikes on Prius using a tow dolly for front wheels.
asked by: Bob S
The Thule Gateway 2 Bike Carrier, # TH9006XT, is indeed listed as a fit for the 2005 Toyota Prius. I have included a link to a video review of the 3 bike model but it shares features with the 2 bike model.
If the Prius is on a tow dolly and you find the bikes on the trunk are hanging too low, you may be able to adjust the arms so that the bikes are up a little higher. However, make sure to return the arms to the proper position before taking the Prius off of the tow dolly.
If you will be carrying womens, childrens, or alternative frame bikes, I recommend using the Adapter Bar, # TH982XT, in order to carry the bikes so that they are level. I have included a link to a video showing how the adapter works.
