2011 Acura RDX Questions and Answers


  • Hitch-Mount Bike Rack Recommendation for 2011 Acura RDX
  • The 2011 Acura RDX can be equipped with either of two sizes of hitch, either a 1-1/4-inch Class II type or a 2-inch Class III type. You will first want to confirm the size of the receiver opening on your hitch since the different sizes/classes have varying weight capacities and some bike racks will only fit the larger size. It is important also to confirm the vehicle's tongue weight capacity (in your owner's manual or at your local dealership) and that of the hitch you have, which will...

  • 3-Bike Trunk Mount Bike Rack for a 2011 Acura RDX and 2005 Honda Pilot
  • The only 3-bike trunk mount bike rack that fits both the 2011 Acura RDX and the 2005 Honda Pilot is the Hollywood Racks Over-the-Top rack # HRF2-3. This rack is unique because it has an extra top arm piece that moves the top straps up and over any rear spoiler or trim piece so no weight is placed on it. I have linked a video showing how the Over-the-Top racks work. If you will be carrying any bikes that do not have a top frame bar that goes straight across (like a typical men's bike...

  • Draw-Tite # 75784 Hitch and Swagman XTC4 Bike Rack Compatibility on 2011 Acura RDX
  • The 2-inch Draw-Tite Hitch we offer for your 2011 Acura RDX is part # 75784 which has a rated tongue weight capacity of 400-lbs. You are correct that any extender/adapter used in this hitch will reduce its capacity by half. This means that your hitch-and-extender would have a tongue weight rating of only 200-lbs. Since the Swagman XTC4 4-Bike Carrier # S64665 itself weighs 59-lbs, your net load capacity for your bikes would be only 141-lbs. This 35-lbs-per-bike may be enough for your...

  • Weight Capacity and Comparison of Rhino Roof Racks for a 2011 Acura RDX
  • I spoke with my contact for Rhino Rack and he said the weight capacity for the Rhino-Rack 2500 Series Roof Racks is 110 lbs for your 2011 Acura RDX. I'm not sure which particular roof rack you came from on our website, but we offer three different Rhino-Rack roof racks for your vehicle that mount to the top of your vehicle with the Custom DK Clamps and Pads, part # DK177. All of these roof racks have 54 inch crossbars and have the same weight capacity. The main difference between the...

  • Replacement Hitch Pin Installation Problem for My XC2 # S64650 Bike Rack
  • I have ran into this situation a couple of times. The hitch pin, # S64029, is the correct hitch pin for the Swagman XC, # S64650, bike rack. Sometimes manufacturing tolerances are not quite the same on the replacement hitch pin and you will need to use a wrench to slowly thread the hitch pin in and out a few times to get the threads to match up perfectly. Start by applying some oil, then threading the new hitch pin in until you feel resistance. Back the hitch pin out a bit and thread...
