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 Raceway PRO

The Raceway PRO trunk-mounted bike rack lets you carry 2 bikes on the back of your Dodge Grand Caravan with no hassle and plenty of style. The rack sets up in minutes with Thule's patented FitDial system, and your bikes ride on shock-absorbing anti-sway cradles engineered to cushion and grip the frames. For added peace of mind, the rack includes One-Key System lock cylinders that allow you to secure your bikes to the rack and the rack to your Dodge Grand Caravan.


Anti-Sway Cradles with Road Dampening Technology (RDT)

The Raceway PRO's Hold Fast anti-sway cradles are steeply curved to hold your bikes in place, and they include thermoplastic elastomer (TPE) cushions with road dampening technology (RDT). The stretchy, gel-like TPE layer absorbs road shock and minimizes vibration to reduce stress on your bike frames during transport.


Hold Fast Anti-Sway Cradles with RDT

Removable No-Sway cages grip your bikes by the downtubes to prevent sway, front-to-back movement, and bike-to-bike contact. TPE strips on each cage cushion your bike frames and protect them from scratches and scuff marks.


TPE cradle straps with reinforced holes

Strong, flexible TPE straps wrap around your bike frames and hold them firmly in the cradles. Reinforced attachment holes maximize hold and durability.


Patented FitDial System

Thule Raceway PRO FitDial

The Raceway PRO uses Thule's patented FitDial system to ensure a snug fit on your Dodge Grand Caravan and to make installation a snap. The included instructions indicate which FitDial number is right for your Dodge Grand Caravan. To set the rack up, simply lift the center levers, adjust the base until the arrow lines up with the right number, and close the levers to lock in your setting.


THRacewayXTRangeofMotion

The rack base opens and closes like a clamshell, so it fits snugly on just about any trunk or rear hatch, and it clears many factory spoilers.


Sure-Tight Retractable Cables

4 Sure-Tight braided steel cables with coated hooks attach the rack firmly to your Dodge Grand Caravan's trunk or rear hatch. These cables won't fatigue over time like nylon straps, and they're a lot more difficult to cut than nylon straps.


Oversize ratcheting knobs let you precisely tighten each cable. To secure the rack to your Dodge Grand Caravan, simply pull up on the release levers to deploy the cables. With the hooks in place on your trunk, turn the ratcheting knobs to tighten the cables until the rack is snug against your Dodge Grand Caravan.


Sleeves and Pads Protect Your Trunk

TPE cable sleeves and pad protect paint finishes

The Sure-Tight cables and hooks are coated with durable nylon, and the cables have movable sleeves that help protect your Dodge Grand Caravan's paint from scuffs and scratches. Contoured TPE pads on the rack's upper and lower bases grip your trunk or rear hatch to keep the rack firmly in place during transport.


Independently Adjustable Arms

The Raceway PRO has adjustable dual arms that provide excellent bike support and make loading and unloading your bikes easy. The arms adjust up and down and side to side, independent of the base and each other. To adjust an arm, simply pull the arm lever, move the arm to the desired position, and close the lever. These levers also let you fold the arms down for storage.


Adjusting the arms up and down ensures that your bikes are level during transport and helps to provide adequate ground clearance.


Adjusting the space between the dual arms aids in bike loading, and it allows the rack to carry a wide variety of bike styles, including children's and alternative frames.


Complete Security for Bikes and Rack

Built-in cable lock with One-Key cylinder

The Raceway PRO has an integrated cable lock that secures the outermost bike to the rack.


Raceway with locking cover open

And the release lever covers lock so you can secure the rack to your Dodge Grand Caravan. Since you cannot release the cables without pressing the levers, the locking covers offer an effective anti-theft device for the rack.


Thule One-Key System locks offer single key convenience

The cable lock and the locking covers have One-Key System cylinders that are keyed alike so you only need a single key for the rack. One-Key System lock cylinders can be swapped out if you own other Thule products and want to use the same key to lock them all.


Convenient Storage

The rack folds flat for compact storage in your trunk or garage. Simply open the center levers, fold up the rack, and close the levers to lock it in the closed position.

Video Transcript for Thule Raceway PRO 2 Bike Rack Review

Today we're going to be reviewing the Thule Raceway Pro, 2-Bike, Trunk Mounted Bike Rack, part number TH9001PRO. This is also available as a 3-bike rack with part number TH9002PRO. The Thule Raceway has a lot of unique features, we're going to start out with how it fits on the vehicle. It has these nice rubber padded protectors as well as the vinyl coated hooks so it's going to protect the paint and finish on our vehicle. Right here in the cradles, it's RDT technology, this is going to be Road Damping Technology providing a nice cushion ride for your bicycle. It's also going to feature your anti-sway cradles so your bikes don't make contact with one another. It's got the fully adjustable arms that way you can scoot them closer together, separate them, you can also change the angle so it's going to fit a wide variety of bikes.

Right here you're going to notice that it has the patented fit dial system so it's also going to fit a wide variety of vehicles. There going to be a lock located on each end of the bike rack. These locks are lock the rack to the vehicle for full security. Here on the end of one of the arms, we're going to find a cable lock system so not only does your rack lock and secure to your vehicle but it's also going to lock your bikes to the rack. It's going to use the same key system so any of the keys provided will work on any of the locks on the rack. The Thule Raceway is constructed of a gas injected molded nylon which makes it very strong and durable but yet light-weight. This bike rack has the carrying capacity of two bikes with the weight capacity of 70 pounds.

The distance between the adjustable arms, from outside cradle to outside cradle, can range from 6 1/2 inches to 10 1/2 inches. Now when loading up a woman's bike, alternative frame bike or a children's bike, you may need to use the Thule Bike Adapter Bar that's available right here at etrailer.com, sold separately with part number TH982XT. Now we're going to show you how to install the Raceway on your vehicle. As you can see it folds up nice and compact for easy and convenient storage. Now you want to refer to the Thule Fit Guide, you can either use our website or they're going to include a fit guide in the instructions. It's going to show you how you need to adjust your arms and where your arms need to be sitting in relation to your particular vehicle. On ours today, we need to go ahead and set our fit dial to the appropriate number, once we have it set, we can close these tabs right here, it's going to lock that upper arm in place.

Now for our particular fit, our upper arm needs to sit here on top of the trunk and then our lower arm needs to seating on the upper tier of our bumper. Now we did go ahead and clean our surface so you want to make sure you do that before installing this. Once we have this situated correctly on our trunk, the next thing to do will be to go ahead and place our hooks. Now these have the nice protectors right here that way it protects the cable but mainly it's going to protect the finish on your vehicle. To adjust the cable, to get the hook in the proper place, we need to open up this cover here, place one of the four included keys in there, move it to an unlock position and then lower the hatch door there. You can see that we have an arrow pointing up that's going to indicate this cable here, pull that back, it's going to allow it to extend out and then we can place the vinyl coated hook directly into that gap right there on our trunk. We're going to use the ratcheting side handle to just get that line snug for now that why we can position the other three cables.

Now we need to place our bottom hooks. To do so, we're going to repeat the same process, flip up on this lever here, it's going to allow us to gain some slack in the cable. Now in some applications, you're going to have to open the trunk in order to get the hook to fit. For ours today, we found out that we can go to the side of our trunk and get the hook to fit in there and then just slide it to where it needs to be positioned. Once we have it there, we can use the larger dial to operate the lower cable. I'm just going to tighten in up and remove any slack. With our rack in place, we can go and fine tune it, make sure everything is nice and tight and secure and then we can close these locking covers. Now once these are locked in place, you can see how that cover cannot be removed so that nobody can gain access to those little levers, loosen up the cables to remove it from our rack. It's fully locked on there and secured. The Thule Raceway can stay on your vehicle even when you don't have any bikes installed. You just want to make sure that your arms are in a down position. Now we're ready to load up our bike. First thing we need to do, open up the lever to allow us to adjust our arms as needed. Now we want to make sure that our arms are level or slightly inclined. Once we have it set to the correct position, all we got to do is close that lever and that arm is going to be secured in place. Now the next step to loading our bike is to undo the cradle straps. It's going to open up our cradles, allowing them to receive the frame of our bike once we have it placed in there. Now we're ready to load up one of our bikes. We're simply just going to take it, place it onto our frame cradles, now if you come in here you can see that these have little grooves in it that's to accommodate if we have any cables mounted underneath the frame. Once we have that in place, we can simply bring our straps over and tighten them down around the frame of our bike. Go and secure the anti-sway. It's going to prevent the bikes from swaying back and forth making contact with one another. Now with the second bike loaded, we can bring our cable lock system over the frame on our bike, place into the groove right there, lock into place that's going to keep anybody from being able to take this bike off the rack which if you can't this bike off the rack, you're not going to be able to get your first bike off the rack either. Now Thule also includes a nice blue strap, this can be intertwined through the bikes' frames and the bikes' wheels that way it's going to ensure that your bike wheels don't rotate, twist and turn as you're going down the road. Really simple installation, all we're going to do is take it through the wheels here on our bike, we're going to run it through both bikes. Simply take it through the other wheels as well and then we're just going to connect it to itself. Once we have that strap ran through the buckle, we simply just pull on one end, take out any slack within the strap. Now another option for attaching the blue strap is to run it through that lower frame on the Thule Raceway, through the bike frames and simply just run it through the strap. You've got numerous ways on which you can install the blue strap that Thule provides. Just keep in mind that it's meant for additional security. Now that we've gone over the features of the bike rack and showed you how to install it, we'll go ahead and take it out on our test course and show you how it performed in action. First, we're going to hit our slalom course, this is going to show you the side to side movement of the bike rack which simulates evasive maneuvering or having to make sharp turns or corners. Then we're going to hit the alternating bumps course, this is going to show you the twisting action of the bike rack which will simulate going over uneven pavement or hitting a pothole. Finally, we're going to take it through the solid bumps course, this is going to show you the up and down movement of the bike rack which is going to simulate going in and out of your driveway or going over a speed bump. That's going to complete today's review of the the Thule Raceway Pro, Trunk Mounted 2-Bike Rack, part number TH9001PRO. .

I previously owned a Thule trailer hitch style bike rack but when I traded in my SUV I didn't want to incur the expense of adding another hitch so started a search for hatchback style rack. Thule builds quality products and their customer service was excellent when I had a problem so I stayed with them. I own a Porsche Cayenne and was very concerned about how the rack would mount but took a chance on the Thule 9001Pro 2 Bike Carrier. The rack comes mostly assembled with the exception of the two snap on anti-sway cage mounts and the rubber ripple straps which were easily added. Mounting did not take too much time, the directions are very good but I was being really cautious. My only concern involves the stress the upper cables may impart on the exterior shade that overhangs the rear window. The cable does include a non scratch guard to protect the vehicle but I am worried about the stress on that lip. That would be a deal breaker. I mounted my bike and took a test drive to check it out. The rack is rock steady with no sway whatsoever. I fish tailed a bit did heavy breaking and reached 75mph with no sign of movement. My hitch style rack swayed quite a bit. The only minor disappointment is the locking cable only works on the outside bike. When I carry a single I keep it on the interior mount closest to the vehicle. Ought to be able to lock either bike mount, of course if you carry two and lock the outside one the inner is safe. The rack is a quality product, well built, easily mounted and road steady. I am very satisfied. 425104

Giving it an excellent for ease of use/set up as well as perceived quality. I posses no mechanical ability. At. All. None. I understood this easily and was able to get it set up for my 2015 Accord with little effort and no problems. The videos on the eTrailers web site were a huge help. Rose from ETrailer was the other great help. Seems solid and very secure after mounting two bikes on it. Purchased one Thule adapter bar for my ladies bike. Worked great. 211668


Comments

One year later- An Update: Found that the anti-sway rocker cradles which fit vertically tend to bend. I had used the rack for a trip from Metro Detroit to Ludington and back. By the time I returned the vertical cradle was bent from the wind pulling the bike away from the trunk of the car. These guys replaced it. But Im not sure how to prevent it in the future. I am happy with this bike rack and do fee its very secure and stable. Im happy.

Recently bought the Thule Raceway 2 bike carrier to haul my mountain bike on my sedan (and stop stealing the wife's minivan!). As usual, it was delivered very quickly by eTrailer with great customer service. I spent my time hooking it up the first time, but still only took about 20 minutes...I can now get in on and off in just a few minutes easy. On the plus side, it seems very sturdy on my 2007 Lexus ES350 and I have had no issues carrying my mountain bike on highways, side streets, etc. The design is clean, sleek, and the product well constructed overall. The challenges / negatives with this rack: 1) tough to fit a full suspension MTB given the frame geometry (which I knew was a gamble on my part with this or likely any trunk rack)...but I was able to make it fit for my Specialized SJ FSR Comp 29er (without the claw bar, that makes it probably too low to the ground for my comfort). 2) one of the cables on the lower hook locks up periodically when retracting. 3) I do appear to have 2 little indentations in my bumper from where the lower part of the rack was resting, but I can live with it. Bottom line: this trunk rack is a lot easier to put on than most and does the job stylishly well. I'd recommend it. 49568

We got the Thule Raceway 2 carrier and a pair of Thule adapter bars. Both seem to be well designed and solidly constructed. The carrier itself is very heavy, and I'm a little worried about the stress that it and the bikes must put on the trunk lid. I'll be interested to see if it has deformed any sheet metal or the plastic bumper covering when I remove it. I'm using the carrier on a new Dodge Dart, which is listed in the printed instructions, but just with a note to look online for updated new-model information. Unfortunately the Thule website seems to the even more outdated. It doesn't even list the Dart, and the carriers it shows are completely different models from the ones available now. But a phone call to E-trailer got me the information I needed for installation. In connection with my purchase, I consulted several different E-trailer people via phone and e-mail, and all were very helpful and professional. Delivery was extremely fast. I entered my online order late Monday afternoon, and the shipment arrived shortly after noon on Wednesday. 93999

Ordered this Thule to attach to the trunk lid and the adjustability definitely allows it to fit many different size trunks. There is more than enough paint protection built into the bumpers where it touches the paint on the vehicle and the flat hooks on the ends are well protected as well. Installation is extremely quick and easy once you determine the correct angle between the top and bottom and if you leave the arms locked in place, all you do is extend and retract the cable arms to mount and dismount. The rack is slightly heavy and cumbersome but you get used to it and the functionality and ease of use far outweigh the cumbersomeness. As far as the bicycle hold downs, they are certainly different but certainly work and do not scratch the bike frame. The only negative I would say would be certain bikes may require a separate stabilization post so the bike does not rock back and forth. Overall while it may be more expensive than other offerings, it is certainly worth the money if only for ease of use and paint protection! 341568

I received the rack and mounted it on a 2010 Prius 5 door hatchback the day I received it with no problems at all. It was a very smart and solid fit! I left on a trip that lasted 33 days to South Carolina And Florida That covered 3,000 miles + with back and forth to Daytona Speed Weeks and Myrtle Beach that had the carrier and a Giant Rapid Bike on the back the whole time. This is one tremendous SOLID rack. Not one problem with it! The only negative was it cut the average Mpg down about two miles per gallon. Still averaged 49 + I then ordered an extra set of straps for a second beach bike, that I ride on the sand at low tide. Ran about 1500 miles with both bikes on Prius that way. Solid Solid Solid. This is a fantastic Carrier. The main reason I chose this bike carrier was all the information from the research and information on your web site. Your site is probably the best I have ever ordered from on the net! Congratulations on the tremendous staff! Thanks again! 71657

I was referred to etrailer.com after researching bike racks on Consumer Reports. etrailer carried the bike rack I was looking for when none of my local dealers had the 9001 model. I am so thrilled with the security of this model and how snuggly it fits both of our vehicles. The carrier does not scratch the cars at all as the supports are well coated with a rubber/silicone material. In addition to the superior product, the customer service was outstanding. The bike carrier was ordered on a Thursday morning, I recieved a confirmation email that my order had been shipped within a few hours (with shipping automatically upgraded), and the bike carrier was at my door step the following day. I don't remember the last time I purchased a product on-line and had it in my hands the very next day. I highly recommend this product and will definitely consider ordering from etrailer again in the future. 43801

Received the Raceway 2 Friday after placing my order earlier in the week on Monday. I was pleasantly surprised that I received an email from Etrailer letting me know that my rack was ready for shipping and they upgraded to 3-5 day for free! That was pretty cool knowing that I'd be up and riding by the weekend. This is an awesome rack! Only takes a few minutes to setup and not only does it work as advertised, it looks pretty cool as well. The online videos definitely helped with the installation. I've had it for a few days and already used it twice. I look forward to getting more use out of my bike now that I don't have to coordinate with my wife to use her SUV. I still need to use my Bike adapter due to the shape of my bike which is a Santa Cruz Heckler, but that was expected. Overall, great service, good price, fast shipping, and an awesome product! 89665

This is an awesome product. It is very easy to install and well built. The cable system holds the rack securely to my 2009 Honda Civic Si 4dr. The rack easily clears the factory spoiler. The only issue I have is with using the Thule adapter bar for my mountain bike. If you position the bike to use the anti-sway bar, then the bike rack cradle is not wide enough to accommodate the end of the adapter bar. I contacted Thule about this and they acknowledge the poor fit and suggested I reposition the bike and to not use the anti-sway bar. This was not the solution I was hoping for. Etrailer.com is working with me to find an adapter bar that will fit properly. 96158


Comments

***Update***etrailer.com recommended using the Yakima adapter bar and it works much better, allowing proper fit and use of the anti-sway bar. Their customer service was fantastic! Thanks etrailer.com!!

Have not yet traveled with the rack or bikes on board, but the initial, trial installation was easy, and the instructions complete and easy to folllow. The box looked like it had been opended previously and then resealed with copper staples and tape. The box also arrived pretty beaten up with holes. That being said, the product appears to be complete and undamaged. I like to dual locks which both secure the bikes to the rack and the rack to the vehicle. I have a 2011 Lexus RX 350, and the instructions say to secure the lower cables to the vehicle shipping tie down brackets under the bumper, rather than under the bottom of the hatchback door. This means that the cables will come into direct contact with the bumper which could cause abrasion. I intend to add some neoprene pipe insulation to the cables to cushion this contact point. 80066

I am using the Thule Raceway 2 for my 2012 Ford Focus hatchback. The cable system secures very well to the hatch and is very quick and easy to mount/dismount from the vehicle. The two security locks also add extra peace of mind for keeping your bikes and rack safe. The molded rubber on the bottom rest was popped out slightly on one side when taken out of box; I was able to use a screwdriver to pry it back, line it up, and press it back into alignment. Keep in mind to check whether the cables rub on your car paint and consider covering them. For my Focus the top cables contact the lip above the rear window (I use a small piece of cloth around the cables). Also, a helpful hint on adjusting the bike rest arm: You have to squeeze the underside! I read to do this on the instructions but wasn't putting much force into the squeeze. 120840

One year Updated Review: I can't remember my first review but I do know it was positive. That said, I'm still in love with my Thule 2-Bike Rack! It has held up beautifully with me feeling relaxed knowing my bikes are secure and safe as I transport them to and fro! Within the next two years, I will be in the market for a new vehicle and as such, I'm thinking about the type vehicle and all the 'accessories' I will expect. One of my 'must haves' WILL be another Thule Bike rack similar to what I purchased prior in order to accommodate my new vehicle! I will NOT consider any other product and I'm so grateful a friend recommended I look into Thule for my first purchase of bike racks! It may seem silly, but I observe ALL cars passing me on the streets that have bike racks...... I think to myself, 'mine is BETTER than theirs'!!! Lol. 483952

Sweet!!! Easy mounting on both my Infiniti M35 and Nissan Murano. Best for mounting bikes with horizontal top tube, since mounting arms move in tandem. Handled road bikes easily with quick mounting and dismounting. Worked well for my mountain bike; but do not recommend for ladies comfort bikes or other step-through bikes. 20262

I have an 08 Pontiac Vibe. Went on my first distance bike club ride yesterday. Hauled my new Electra Townie in the back of my husbands truck. At 67 with arthritis, it was not much fun lifting and lugging the bike into the truck. Checking out the possibilities of a rear mounted bike rack and this one sounds good, except that it is not recommended for ladies comfort bikes or other step through bikes. What would be a good choice to protect both my car, my bike, and my back? Thanks.

It could actually work very well with ladies or step-through bikes, with the addition of an adapter bar. An adapter bar hooks around the seat post, just underneath the seat, and around the handlebar tree. Essentially it is a clip-on top bar. Check out part TH982XT. You could always add a hitch to the Vibe. A hitch would allow you to use a lower, platform style bike rack that could be easier to load than even this rack. If you are interested in that route, let me know and I can help you find a hitch and hitch rack that will work.

2011 Kia Soul


I bought this for the ease of installing. I've seen other bike racks that are just a pain to get on the car, and the bikes on the rack and I wanted something easy. I drive a 2011 Kia Soul with a spoiler. Unfortunately, the top hooks and cable don't go under the spoiler. After an hour of pushing and prodding and researching online, I gave it one more try before sending it back. Luckily, I stumbled upon a solution. By pulling the plastic cable covering back, you're able to detach the hook from the cable, slide the cable under the spoiler then reassemble the two pieces on the other side of the spoiler. Once I figured that out, putting it on the car and the bikes on the rack was super easy. I'd definitely recommend this rack for Soul drivers and others. 34880

The customer service department responded to my inquiry very quickly with a suggestion for my Kia Soul. The product arrived in excellent condition. The install was very easy and took approximately 30 minutes, including going in and out of our home twice to get the bikes. The straps tighten easily and provide great stability. We did a test run and did notice the straps should be tightened again after the bikes are loaded and checked again after a short drive. There were some adjustments that needed made again to guarantee the most secure trip. I'm very impressed so far with the quality of the product and as someone who's never used a bike rack to haul bikes in the past I am extremely impressed so far. 286282

just received the rack, easy to mount but instructions are lacking. They do not tell you where to place the rack (on the bumper or on the body) Im tried both places and decided the bumper was a better location due to the possibility of body damage. The top hooks needed to be slid into position from the outer edge of the door. The suggested setting for the rack open position was 9 for the GMC Acadia but I currently have it on 10, it brings the unit closer to the vehicle. The 11 setting was right on top of the rear windshield wiper. Beyond those couple of things installation was a breeze, took about 20 minutes from start to finish. Now that I know the procedure it will take much less time. 52092

It was delivered earlier than expected. This morning I placed it on my Subaru Outback and it was very easy to do. I mounted my 2 bikes without any problem. I did placed the men's bike first, and the woman's bike second. It was very easy for the woman's bike as it was for the men's. I was worried that my woman's bike would be difficult but it wasn't. The padding is adequate and not as hard as other reviewers described. I drove to my destination - about 45 miles away- at a speed of 75 miles per hour and the bike rack did hold tight the whole time. I love the fact that has a key to lack the rack to the car and the bikes to the rack. I will definitely recommend it. Great job design team! 53490

I am so pleased that I made the decision to purchase this model of hitch. I was hesitant at first because of the price but I am so happy I didn't let price dictate my buying decision. Just received it last Thursday right on time as promised and used it to take my bike from Clearwater, Fl across the state to St Augustine. The rack comes fully assembled and takes less than a minute to mount. Fit like a glove to my trunk and is extremely heavy duty. I travelled most the way at 70mph and bike did not sway at all. Next trip is to Wisconsin this June. When I leave tomorrow I will take a picture an email to you. It looks really sharp on the car as you will see. Thank you. 126266

I have a VW Jetta and it does have the capabilities for a roof mounted bike rack. I opted to buy the TH9001 because how easy it is to take on and off the car and how easy it is to load bicycles. What convinced me was the helpful videos I watched before I made my purchase. 80980

This rack has exceeded my expectations. I did not want to mount a rack on top of my vehicle and because of my auto design I had limited options. I wanted reliability, functionality and durability and this rack exceeds in all areas. The only issue I had was that one of the holding straps ripped after the third use. The straps possibly could be made of more durable rubber. But because of the excelent customer service of this company where I purchased this rack, they arranged for replacement straps to be sent from the manufacturer. I am a happy customer who now gets to transport my bike to many adventures. 220186

I literally had the carrier in one days time and they sent several informative emails letting me know the status of my order over that day. I will say that the onsite information about the carrier should be more clear about the fact the if you have a womens bike you will need an adapter which is only $37.95 but it would have been helpful to know that so I could have included that order in the carrier order. 103995

The carrier goes on easy, fits very well, does not loosen up, and is the best I've seen for a pair of bikes on a Mini Cooper. Love the cables instead of straps and the lockability. I do wonder, however, whether the cable protection is real or percieved, as the cables aren't that thick and a paif of bolt cutters would get them easily. Knives, pliers, etc., though, it'd probably protect the carrier and bikes better from them. 93181

Does this rack fit a 09 VW Beetle convertible?

-- comment by: Sue C - 08/13/2013

I checked with the Thule fit guide and this rack is not a fit. Thule states that the convertible is unable to support the weight of the rack and bikes safely. The story looks to be the same with Yakima. Your best bet would be to add a hitch to the Beetle Conv. and use a hitch mounted bike rack. I have added a link to the 3 different hitches available for our 2009 Beetle Conv.

I had bought this TH9001PRO for my 2015 Nissan Rogue Select and after a year of usage, I must say it's still as durable, reliable, and as effective as ever.... Just don't lose your keys!!! And it was this EXACT feature that drew me into purchasing this product....the fact that it came with secured locking chambers for the cable dials to loosen or fasten the rack onto the vehicle. Theft is unfortunately one the saddest parts where I'm from and so far, that hasn't been an issue! It's money well spent for me to lug around my hybrid bicycle for many nice leisure adventures!! 360080

The new bike rack is awesome, easy to use, and I was surprised at how solid and strong it is. Even better, this "newer" rack was black, unlike the older white one. It matches my bike and contrasts well with my white BMW. I highly recommend this product and this company, thank you! 99953

The Thule Raceway 2 bike rack (TH9001) works perfectly on my new Audi A6. It is easy to set up and mount, and very sturdy and secure. I appreciate the integrated locking mechanism for both the rack and the bikes. I highly recommend etrailer.com. Their selection is extensive, prices are competitive, and the ordering process is very easy. They also delivered the bike rack well ahead of schedule. Most importantly, the customer-oriented information on their website (instructions, FAQs, videos) is exceptional. Etrailer.com far exceeded my expectations. 99463

Small price to pay to transport my bike safe and secure. 186107

This rack is great. It took around 10 min to unbox, review instructions, then mount. Very stable at speed, easy to adjust and the quality is evident. etrailer's price was very good and shipping was superb - the rack shipped the day we ordered and arrived only two days later (one day earlier than scheduled). The car fit guarantee and on-line videos provided peace-of-mind and demonstrated not only how to mount the rack (saved time when it arrived) but etrailer's commitment to customer knowledge and satisfaction. Wonderful store, wonderful rack. 522792

Had some issues install the bike rack. No instructions in the box but general ones on the box. There is a difference between the bottom and top hooks. They were in the wrong position from the factory and would not attach securely to the top of the hatch. After some research I figured out the correct way to install the hooks and all seems ok. The top hooks could still stand to be a little longer to better engage the glass and not just the plastic frame. Aside from this the quality of this product is outstanding and the service even better. 143663

Very sturdy and secure bike rack - easy and quick install. The main bike being loaded is a women's hybrid and it's not a uniform fit (bike is a bit of a monster), but it works thanks to the Thule bike adapter. Shipping was fast. Had an issue with one of the cradles and the lock the first week and called customer service - they responded with an immediate new rack shipment turnaround - even before I could get the original rack returned. Very pleased with e-trailer service, info on their site, the Thule bike adapter, and the rack. 106621

This is a great bike rack; it's solid, easy to put on (it probably would have helped for me to watch the video before ...but I did figure it out with the paper directions and learned a little lesson about “first things first”), and it doesn't hinder my view out the rear window of my 2010 Honda Element at all. Also, I was a little concerned that the rack might scratch my car but I can see now that isn't something I need to worry about.

This was so easy to set up...for even someone who is often considered "technically challenged." The instructions were well organized and very easy to follow.

But that was easily remedied and I was up and running in about 15 minutes. I wanted a rack that I could manage by myself and am so glad that I ordered this one. Thanks for a great product. 56760

Eliminating the cloth straps and replacing them with coated cables is a real plus, along with the ability to secure the rack and bicycles by locking them. I don't have to worry about straps flapping around and wearing through my paint or coming untied and my bicycles falling off.

-- comment by: Barry - 09/09/2013

The rack will not work with the convertible. Because of the convertible and where it folds down, there is not a good place to secure the top straps. Thule also does not list it as a fit for the Highlander. What you could do is a hitch mounted setup for both. For the BMW, Curt hitch C11177 would work. For the Highlander, Curt Hitch 13534. With a hitch on each vehicle, you can use a hitch mounted rack. I have added a link to all the racks that will fit with both of those hitches. You could also look into roof racks with the Highlander, but that would not help with the BMW convertible.

Excellent choice for me. Easy set up. Cable attachments eliminate need for separate tethered puck. Can use this rack on my 08 Mazda 5 and our 04 Grand Marquis. Plus, my daughter can use on her 07 Mazda 3. The bike is stable on the rack and the rack very secure on the car. Be sure to slip the straps under any externally routed shifting and brake cables.

This product was easy to install and secured bike well over long distances. One complaint would be that it is only possible to lock a bike onto the front carrier, which is fine if you are carrying two bikes, but if there is only one it would be nice to be able to lock it onto the back one as well. Also would like to be able to lock the cables on both sides rather than just one. Directions well written and easy to follow. Overall a good product. 41062

Bought this carrier for a 2013 Honda Accord. The on-line videos for this product were very informative so much that I didn't even refer to the instruction manual for the 1st install (which only took a few minutes). The ratcheting cables tie this down such that it is very secure and stable. Like that you can lock access to release lever covers. One minor complaint is that anti-sway cradles snap on and can come off when storing in your trunk. 275011

I've been using the TH9001PRO for over a year now. The rack is superb: very well made, secure on the back of my car and exceptionally reliable. Initially, I ran into some trouble when the car speed exceeded 60 MPH--the bike needed to be anchored with velcro straps to keep it from shifting in the wind. (some good suggestions from George at etrailer). That's been the only problem & easily remedied. All-in-all 5 stars. 281387

The rack is a little heavy. Maybe it has to be as it is solidly built. So far my big complaint is the lock to secure the rack to the car is a little tricky. It is sometimes hard to un-lock and feels as if I'm going to brake the key off inside the lock. It is not as friendly as the second lock that is used to secure the bike to the rack. I'm trying to decide if I should return it. Otherwise, the rack works really well. 52906

Just installed on my 2016 Honda Accord Sport with no problems. The design is ingenious -- no flapping straps, only 4 attachments to trunk, and with locking features. Regarding latter, however, I suspect that the locking covers are either plastic or very lightweight metal and could easily be pried off, exposing the cable releases. So, I would not leave rack and bikes on car in places I was concerned about theft. 288308

  • An easy solution for you would be to get a trunk mounted bike rack. A trunk rack attaches with straps to the rear of a vehicle and rests on the trunk or hatch. There are trunk racks confirmed to fit your 2015 Volkswagen Golf R so this would be a great option. For the best trunk rack out there I would recommend the Thule Raceway part # TH9001PRO. What makes this rack far superior to the others is the attachment system. It uses 4 retractable coated steel cables to attach to the vehicle...

  • Bike Rack Recommendation for a 2012 Chevrolet Sonic Hatchback
  • There are many different styles of bike racks that you can use on your 2012 Chevrolet Sonic Hatchback, but due to the spoiler that comes on the rear hatch of your vehicle, I would recommend using a roof or hitch mounted bike rack over a trunk mounted bike rack. The rear spoiler on your vehicle was not designed to support any type of weight and it will be forced to support the weight of a bike rack and bikes when you use a trunk mounted bike rack. Instead, I would recommend looking into...

  • The Thule Raceway PRO 2-Bike Platform Rack # TH9003PRO that you used on your 1999 Buick Century is NOT a fit on the 2015 Acura RDX.

The reason the larger platform style Raceway rack # TH9003PRO is not recommended is its substantial 45-lb weight which can be too much for some vehicles' trunk lids. When you load...

  • Differences Between Thule Raceway # TH9001PRO and # TH9001XT Models
  • The Thule # TH9001PRO is the upgraded version of the Raceway 2-bike trunk-mount rack. The XT model has been discontinued, but the primary difference was the location of the locks. The XT model locked the release handles for the mounting cables, but left the levers exposed and easily tampered with. The PRO model features a locking cover that makes the release levers inaccessible for greater security. The PRO model does come with a price increase, but I've got to tell you that the Raceway...

  • Can the Trunk be Opened with the Thule Raceway Trunk Mount Bike Rack Installed
  • Trunk mount bike racks should be removed when not in use. If you leave them on all the time they can leave marks on the vehicle in some cases. You will not want to open the trunk with the bike rack installed. Doing so could wedge the hooks against the body of the vehicle or trunk lid and damage them. The hinges or struts for the trunk are not designed for added weight and also because of the extra weight the trunk could fall on you if the rack was still attached. The Thule Raceway...
