Approved for use on cars, trucks, vans, SUVs, and motorhomes - not approved for fifth wheels or towable campers

Note: This dual-arm rack reduces the need for a bike frame adapter bar (sold separately) to mount a children's, women's, or alternative frame bicycle. However, to mount certain bikes or to keep your bike level on the rack, a bike adapter bar may be required. Most step-through bikes, dual-suspension bikes, and small children's bikes will require a bike adapter bar.

Thule Camber 4-Bike Hanging-Style Rack

This easy-to-use, hitch-mounted rack lets you transport 4 bikes on the back of your vehicle. It has fold-up anti-sway cradles and ratcheting straps that make it easy to load and unload your bikes. The cradles are set 7" apart, so there's enough space between your bikes to prevent them from becoming tangled on the rack. HitchSwitch levers let you tilt the rack away from your vehicle for access to your rear cargo area and fold the arms down when not in use.

Folding Dual Arms with HitchSwitch Lever

Thule Camber 4-Bike Hanging-Style Rack Folding Dual Arms with HitchSwitch Lever

The Camber has dual arms that provide your bikes with excellent support and ground clearance during transport.

Thule Camber 4-Bike Hanging-Style Rack Hitch Switch Lever

The upper HitchSwitch lever lets you fold the arms down when not in use.

HideAway Anti-Sway Cradles

Thule Camber 4-Bike Hanging-Style Rack Anti-Sway Cradles

The Camber has HideAway anti-sway cradles that secure each bike twice along the top tube and once along the seat post or downtube. This reduces rocking to help eliminate bike-to-bike and bike-to-vehicle contact. The soft rubber cradles rotate around the arms to accommodate your bikes' frames. Each cradle is set 7" apart on the arms, so there is more space between your bikes when compared with many other hanging-style racks. The added space helps prevent your bikes from becoming tangled on the rack.

Thule Camber 4-Bike Hanging-Style Rack Grooves

The cradles have grooves on the surface that prevent your brake and shifter cables from getting pinched.

Thule Camber 4-Bike Hanging-Style Rack Folding Cradles

Durable, dual-molded ratchet straps hold your bikes firmly in place on the cradles. You can remove the lower straps and fold the cradles up against the arms to make it easier to slide your bikes onto the rack.

Tilting Rack with HitchSwitch Lever

Thule Camber 4-Bike Hanging-Style Rack Tilting

The rack tilts for easy access to your vehicle's rear cargo area. Just pull up on the HitchSwitch lever at the base of the rack, and lower the rack into position. When you're ready to go, lift the rack up until it snaps into place with an audible click.

Thule Camber 4-Bike Hanging-Style Rack Lower HitchSwitch Lever

The HitchSwitch lever is located right behind the base of the mast. This makes it easy to reach with one hand and steady the mast with the other.

Easy Installation

Thule EasyFold XT

The Camber easily installs in your hitch with the included threaded hitch pin. Just slide the shank into your receiver, insert the hitch pin, and then tighten it down with the included tool. The pin also works as an anti-wobble device to eliminate sway and rattle in the receiver.

Hitch Compatibility

Thule Camber 4-Bike Hanging-Style Rack Hitch Adapter

The rack includes a sleeve that slides over the 1-1/4" shank to convert the rack for use with 2" hitch receivers. The sleeve attaches to the shank with a single screw and can be installed or removed in seconds.

I recently purchased this Thule bike rack. It was easy to figure out how to use and easy to load the bikes on. It does take a few minutes to load 4 bikes but the more times I do it the faster I get! The bikes are secure and do not bang together. A great buy! 793602

Product as described and fast shipping. Very easy purchase. 797795

- TH9056

Very easy to install and to attach our bikes- two adult bikes and two children's 20 inch bikes. The bikes are very secure on the rack. There is minimal movement while driving. It is also easy enough for me to attach alone and I'm not that strong and I have a bum shoulder. This rack works perfectly with our 2019 Subaru Ascent. 803856

I love this bike rack. I installed it myself. It was very easy. Loading the bikes on the rack was simple too. I drive a Yukon XL. Because my SUV is already long was worried that I wouldn’t be able to close the garage door with the rack attached. I was pleasantly surprised when I saw I had enough room when I folded the rack down. However, I can’t have the rack in the raised position and close the garage door. But that’s ok because the bikes are so easy to remove from the rack. 793996

  • Recommendation Between the Thule Camber 4 and Yakima Ridgeback 4 Bike Carriers
    The etrailer Trailer Hitch Receiver - Custom Fit - Matte Black Finish - Class III - 2" # e98862 you referenced will have the hitch pin hole recessed 4-1/2 inches from the outer bumper. This will allow for compatibility with both the Thule Camber or the Yakima Ridgeback you referenced. The biggest difference between the two bike carriers for your application is the arm spread distances. The Thule Camber # TH9056 has outside cradle to outside cradle measurement of 13 inches.

  • Correct Replacement Hitch Bolt for Thule Camber Bike Rack
    The Thule Camber 4 Bike Rack like part # TH9056 uses a hitch bolt, the Replacemnt Hitch Bolt part # 853-5917 or the Replacement Locking Hitch Bolt part # THSTL2 which are both 1/2" diameter.

  • What Hitch Pin Should be Used with Thule Camber Bike Rack
    The Thule Camber 4 Bike Rack # TH9056 that you referenced comes with the only hitch pin that should be used with it. It can't be used with standard hitch pins like what you mentioned. This comes with a threaded hitch pin that you thread through the hitch tube and and rack shank which holds the rack tightly to the hitch and prevents movement. To make this a locking hitch pin you'd then want the part # THSTL2.

  • Trailer Hitch Receiver and 4-Bike Rack to Fit 2009 Toyota Sienna
    The Draw-Tite Max-Frame # 75237 is confirmed to fit your 2009 Toyota Sienna. The hitch bolts onto your van giving you a 2 inch, Class III trailer hitch receiver. Between the Swagman Trailhead # S63380 and Thule Camber # TH9056 I prefer the Thule. They're both very similar with anti-sway cradles and that the tilt will allow access to the rear area of your Sienna. They both include anti-rattle as well. For me, the thing that sets the Camber apart from the Swagman is the folding arms....

  • Bike Rack Recommendations for a 2002 Acura MDX
    There are a couple options for your 2002 Acura MDX. I will walk you through them. The strongest and most versatile method is to use a hitch and hitch-mounted bike rack. One of the most popular hitches for your vehicle is part # 75599. This installs underneath your rear bumper. Then you would pick a bike rack to fit a 2 inch hitch. We have bike racks that will hold 2 to 5 bikes, like these popular models; the 4 bike rack part # TH9056 or a lighter 2 bike rack like part # 59400. This...

  • Will Thule Hitch Bike Rack, # TH9056, Work On A Travel Trailer
    The manufacturer (Thule) does not recommend that any Thule hitch bike rack be used on a trailer or any other towed vehicle. So you will not want to use the Thule Hitch Bike Rack, # TH956, on your travel trailer. I do have a Swagman Original 4 Bike Rack, # S64400, that can be used on the back of a travel trailer. It will fit 1-1/4 inch and 2 inch trailer hitches. You will want to check the tongue weight capacity of the hitch on your trailer, so you will not exceed the specifications...

  • Comparing Thule Helium Pro 3 and Thule Camber 4 Bike Racks
    The Thule Helium Pro 3 Bike Rack part # TH9043PRO and Thule Camber 4 Bike Rack part # TH9056 are both excellent options. The main difference between them is weight, the Thule Helium is made of aluminum so it only weighs 20 lbs and the Thule Camber is made of steel so it weighs more at 34 lbs. Therefore, the Thule Helium will be easier to get on an off the vehicle. In regards to hitch size, they both have a 1-1/4" shank but also come with a 1-1/4" to 2" adapter.

    We have many 4 bike hitch mount bike racks that will work great with your 2012 Buick Enclave, including the Thule Camber 4 Bike Rack, # TH9056. Sometimes childrens and womens bike can have small or angled bike frames. Small and angled bike frames can make it difficult to load the bike on a bike rack and can cause ground clearance issues with the bike tires. If your kids bikes have small or angled frames, I would recommend picking up a bike adapter bar, like part # TH982XT, to load your...

  • Is There a Ball Mount with Receiver and No Drop to Tow a Trailer and Carry Bikes at the Same Time
    While there isn't a multi-purpose ball mount that doesn't have a rise we do have MaxxTow ball mount # MT70066 which, out of the options, has the least amount of drop at 1-5/8 inches. Another possible option to carry bikes on # TH9056 and tow the trailer at the same time is to use a front mount trailer hitch and carry the bikes at the front. If you think this is a viable option let me know the year, make, and model of the tow vehicle and I can see if there is a front hitch for it. If...

  • Will the Thule Camber 4-Bike Rack Fit a 2005 Chevy Colorado with a 2-Inch Receiver Hitch
    The Thule Camber 4-bike rack # TH9056 you referenced will fit your 2-inch hitch on your 2005 Chevy Colorado. With that said, the bike rack can carry 4 bikes weighing 35 pounds each and the rack itself weighs about 32 pounds. I recommend you double-check your owners manual to find out the exact tongue weight maximum and be sure not to exceed it. If you plan on carrying any women's, children's, or alternative frame bikes, I recommend getting an adapter bar like # TH982XT. It will provide...

Bike racks that would work well with this vehicle are the Thule Camber 4 Bike Hitch Mounted Folding Rack, item # TH9056, and the Swagman XTC4 Cross Country 2-Bike Rack, item # S64665. These are both excellent racks and secure the bikes very well.

  • Hanging 4 Bike Rack Recommendation for 2019 Subaru Forester
    Just to clarify and try to address your initial concern, there won't be any parts removed from your vehicle when installing the EcoHitch Hidden Hitch # 306-X7391 , but there will be some trimming of the fascia on the underside of the bumper required. The differences in installation between the EcoHitch Hidden Hitch and the DrawTite # 76271 are directly correlated to the benefits of one over the other. The reason that the DrawTite hitch doesn't require that trimming is because it is mounted...

    The Thule Camber # TH9056 is a really great option that I know you'll be happy with! The trailer hitch that I recommend using for this application is the Draw-Tite # 76253 because it installs behind your rear bumper which means you can cover it with the rear panel when you aren't using it for a complete OEM look. This hitch is also the most cost-effective when it comes to this style so you are getting the best of both worlds without sacrificing quality. I've attached some pictures and...

This custom hitch will use existing holes in the Forester's frame for a no-drill installation and it features a tongue weight capacity of 525 pounds, more than enough to support a bike rack and 3 or 4 loaded bikes.

    The Thule Hitching Post Pro 4 Bike Rack, # TH934XTR, that you referenced is a great economy 4 bike rack that will work well for your 2017 Nissan Rogue. I recommend the Thule Camber # TH9056 which is a step up from the Hitching Post Pro rack. The Camber is a lighter rack compared to the Hitching Post Pro. I also recommend using a bike adapter bar like the Kuat Ubar Adapter Bar, # UB01, on bikes with alterative bike frames like a woman's or kid's bike frame. These types of frames usually...

    Yes. The Draw-Tite Trailer Hitch, # 75560, has the capacity for a 4 bike rack. You will have to consult your owners manual to check your vehicles towing capacities to see if it can handle the weight of 4 bikes plus the rack. We have many 4 bike racks that will fit this hitch. I recommend the Thule Camber 4 Bike Hitch Mounted Folding Rack # TH9056. This is a folding rack that will fold out of the way to allow for access to the rear of the vehicle.

This trailer hitch will not require drilling for installation and it will allow you to keep you full size spare tire stowed under your vehicle.

  • Lowering the Tailgate on a 2016 Ford F-150 with a Thule Vertex 2 Bike Hitch Mounted Rack
