Will a Trunk Mount Bike Rack Fit a Honda CR-V

Question:

Does it work on an Honda CRV ?

asked by: Rob


Expert Reply:

If you have a 2007 or newer Honda CR-V (without the rear-mounted spare tire), then you can use a Yakima trunk mount bike rack, but you will be limited to carrying a maximum of 2 bikes. This is because with the Yakima racks that will fit (see link) you must use the glass hook adapters and this reduces the capacity of the 3 bike models down to only 2 bikes.

None of the Thule racks, including the Gateway that you referenced are listed as a fit.

The bike rack that is closest to the Thule rack you referenced would be the SuperJoe Pro 2, # Y02629. If you will be carrying womens, childrens or alternative frame bikes, I recommend using the Tube Top adapter bar, # Y02531, for greater ground clearance and to carry the bikes more level. I have included a link to a video that shows how the adapter works.
