I have a 2003 Honda Odyssey. Will this bike rate fit? We will be buying a new Odyssey as well. Will this bike rate fit the newer model?
asked by: Michael G
I do have some bike rack solutions for you but none of the Thule trunk mount racks fit the 2003 or current generation Honda Odyssey. There are some trunk mount options for the 2003 from Yakima, but you will be limited to carrying just 2 bikes and none will fit the 2011 or 2012 models.
What I recommend is a trailer hitch and trailer hitch mount bike rack. A trailer hitch that will fit a 2003 up to 2012 Honda Odyssey is Hidden Hitch model # 87479. This is a Class III trailer hitch with a 2 inch receiver compatible with a wide range of bike racks. I have included links to a video showing installation on a 2003 Odyssey and another video showing installation on a 2012 model. I have also linked the instructions.
For a bike rack, I recommend the Swagman XP, # S64910-2. This is a single arm bike rack with rotating cradles. This design is compatible with a wide range of bikes. I have included a couple of links on this bike rack as well.
