Will this bike rack work for a 2007 rav 4 toyota that has a spare tire on the back, and the spare tire is enclosed in a case?
asked by: Nancy
On trailer hitches we have installed on the 2007 Toyota RAV4, the distance from the center of the hitch pin hole out to clear the spare tire is between 6 and 7 inches. The Helium, # TH970XT, measures 8-1/2 inches from hitch pin hole center to the back of the upright bar so it should clear the spare. You will need measure on your specific set up to determine fit.
I have included links to the instructions and a video for you. If you will be carrying womens, childrens, or alternative frame bikes, I recommend using the bike adapter bar # TH982XT for greater ground clearance and to carry the bikes more level. I have included a video link showing how the adapter works.
