  • Install Photo of Thule Elite Van XT 2 Bike Rack
  • There are two different Thule Elite Van XT 2 Bike Racks, part # TH302043 for Sprinters or part # TH302013 for ProMasters. I have attached an install photo below of the model for ProMasters with bikes attached. I checked with Thule for you but this is the only photo they provide of the rack installed.

  • Does Thule Elite Van XT Bike Rack Fit Low Roof Ram ProMaster
  • The # TH302013 does fit the low and tall roof variations of the Ram Promaster. For a set of locks to lock your bikes to the rack you'd also want the # TH450200 as well.

  • Can Rear Hatch on 2014 Honda CR-V Be Opened with Saris Bones Bike Rack Attached
  • The Saris Bones 2 Bike Carrier # SA805BL that you referenced is a really nice carrier that's confirmed to fit your 2014 Honda CR-V, however even with the bikes unloaded you won't be able to open the rear hatch without completely removing the rack. This is because the upper straps are going to clip around the top seam where the roof meets the hatch, and opening the rear will cause this connection to loosen up and reduce the tension on the carrier, likely causing it to move around and possibly...

  • Bike Rack Recommendations For 2018 Ford Edge SEL
  • I recommend the Saris Bones EX 3 Bike Rack - Adjustable Arms - Trunk Mount part # SA803 for the 2018 Ford Edge SEL. It fits all models of the Ford Edge and carries 3 bikes. The Saris Bones is a great option because of it's anti-sway cradles that secure the bikes to the rack. It also features adjustable arms so there is less of a need for a bike frame adapter bar on women's and children's bikes. While I do think the Saris Bones trunk mounted rack is a great option for you, however if...

  • Trunk Rack or Hitch Rack for 3 Mountain Bikes on 2012 Mazda CX-9
  • As long as each of your mountain bikes weighs under 35 pounds, a trunk mounted rack is physically capable of safely supporting them for travel. With that being said it's not going to be a particularly enjoyable experience. Loading similarly sized bikes onto a hanging-style trunk rack can be somewhat difficult, as the cradle spacing typically isn't ideal to easily prevent bike-to-bike contact, and I have a feeling the two boys' mountain bikes will each require a separate adapter bar...

  • Best Way to Transport 3 Bikes with 2019 Toyota Prius
  • The available trailer hitches for your 2019 Toyota Prius, the Curt # C11473 and the Draw-Tite # 24966, are both Class I hitches. As you mentioned in your question, a Class I hitch can only safely handle up to 2 bikes when using a rack. This has more to do with the leverage of an additional bike further out from the rear of the vehicle and hitch than with the actual added weight. Because of this, your best option for transporting 3 bikes is indeed with the trunk-mounted Yakima FullBack...

  • Bike Rack Solution Recommendation for 2018 Nissan Rogue
  • I do have a solution that will allow you to carry a bike rack with your 2018 Nissan Rogue, but due to the spoiler you have at the rear of your vehicle you'll have to go a different route since there aren't any trunk options that fit. The option that will work on your truck and actually will give you an overall more secure and better rack setup is a trailer hitch bike rack. Aside from a much more secure attachment to the vehicle the rack doesn't touch the vehicle paint at all which helps...

  • Can Trunk Bike Rack Carry One e-Bike Weighing 60 Pounds
  • I do have a solution for you, however you won't be able to carry a single 60 pound e-bike using any of our trunk mounted bike racks, including the Thule Passage 2 Bike Carrier # TH910XT. The individual cradles on the rack aren't capable of safely handling a bike that weighs more than 35 pounds. This means your only option for transporting your bike will be with a trailer hitch and hitch-mounted carrier that's designed for e-bikes. For the hitch the Draw-Tite Class I # 24990 will...

  • Will the Yakima HangOut 2 Bike Rack Fit a 2019 Jeep Cherokee
  • I do have an option for you but the Yakima HangOut 2 Bike Rack part # Y02637 is not a fit for a 2019 Jeep Cherokee. Instead, you can use the Yakima HalfBack 2 Bike Rack part # Y02636 which is a much nicer option overall that has more padding to better protect the vehicle's surface, less straps needed for installation thereby saving time, and it has a much nicer finish so it will look better. The Yakima HangOut 2 is currently the most cost effective option we have for you at this time....

  • Best Trunk Mount Bike Rack for a 2019 Honda HR-V
  • As far as looks and ease of use goes the best is the Yakima FullBack which comes in both 2-bike # Y02634 and 3-bike # Y02633 versions. You only have 4 straps to install on your 2019 Honda HR-V, the adjustments are very easy to make, and since the cradles have a lower profile it is much easier to load a bike on this. With that being said, since your 2019 Honda HR-V has a larger spoiler at the top of the hatch any trunk mount rack like the Yakima FullBack will put pressure on that spoiler...

  • Does Saris Bones 3 Bike Trunk Rack Fit 2020 Infiniti QX60
  • Yes the Saris Bones 3 bike rack part 3 # SA803 that you referenced does fit your 2020 Infiniti QX60 and would be a really great 3 bike trunk mounted bike rack for you. If you plan on carrying any womens or alternative framed bikes without horizontal top tubes you may also be interested in purchasing a Kuat Bike Frame Adapter Bar # UB01 to provide a horizontal top tube on your bikes to provide an attachment point. I attached a review video for this product also. This will allow the bikes...

  • Comparing the Saris Bones 2 and Yakima HangOut for a 2017 Toyota Highlander
  • The Saris Bones 2 Bike Carrier part # SA805BL is a better choice for your 2017 Toyota Highlander than the Yakima HangOut 2 Bike Rack part # Y02637 because the straps that are used to secure the bikes are easier to use (ease of use), the Hatch Huggers have less potential to cause damage to the vehicle (peace of mind), and the three independent points of contact will be more stable (stability). In order to use the Saris Bones 2 on your Toyota Highlander you will need two sets of the Hatch...

Please note that if any of your bikes have an alternative frame you will also need to use the Yakima Tube Top Bike Adapter Bar part # Y02531. - Outer/lower support frame rests on the lower portion of the license plate or well.

  • Do I Need a Frame Adapter for Yakima HangOut 2
  • Thank you for the picture. Those are always helpful! Because those bikes have rather aggressive frames, you'll need the frame adapters to carry them on a hanging rack like the Yakima HangOut 2 # Y02637. I recommend using the Yakima Tube Top Bike Adapter Bar # Y02531 because of the molded collars that are used on the frame and seat post, which is great to keep your bike looking new. You'll also want to make sure that your bikes are less than 30-lbs each (60-lbs total) to stay under the capacity...

  • Recommended Way To Carry 3 Bikes On 2010 Toyota Sienna

It's a good option for a trunk mount rack that allows you to adjust the arms for the easy loading and the perfect fit. The best trunk mount option for the 2010 Toyota Sienna is the Yakima FullBack 3 Bike Rack part # Y02633 which also has adjustable arms but the fit is a lot more custom which gives it more stability on the back of the minivan....

  • Carrying a Womens Bike on the Thule Raceway PRO Trunk Mount Rack
  • It can be difficult to carry a women's bike on hanging style bike racks, like the Thule Raceway PRO # TH9001PRO. If you can get the arms inside the frame the bikes sit very awkward and are difficult to get on and off. The solution is a bike frame adapter bar. The bar installs between the seat post and the handlebar stem creating a horizontal bar just like a typical men's bike has. Pretty much every bike rack manufacturer offers one and I've linked our complete selection. I favor...

  • Can the Yakima HangOut Carry an 18 Childrens Bike
  • The Yakima HangOut 3 Bike Rack # Y02638 is capable of holding children's bikes but you'll need to use the Adapter Bar # Y02531 to do so simply because the bike won't have a big enough frame for the arms of the rack to go through. This adapter bar clamps onto the tube for the handlebars and the seat post which then gives you the spacing needed to mount the bike on the HangOut. I have attached a picture of this rack on a sedan where we have the child's bike at the rearmost location. If...

  • Difference Between Yakima HalfBack and Yakima FullBack Trunk Mount Bike Racks

The FullBack includes an integrated cable lock to secure the bikes to the rack. Then there's also an included security cable that helps keep the rack secured to your Volvo. Of course you can add locks to the HalfBack. The Yakima security strap is part # Y02623 and the integrated cable lock is part # 8880572. Also...

  • Carrying 3 Bikes on a 2019 Volvo XC90
  • Both the 2-bike, part # Y02637, and 3-bike, part # Y02638, versions of the Yakima HangOut trunk mount rack do fit your 2019 Volvo XC90. However, you're correct, the Glass Hatch Hooks, part # Y02612, that are included with the racks can only be used with 2 bikes. So even though the 3-bike rack fits your vehicle you're limited to 2 bikes on it. To carry 3 bikes on your Volvo I recommend adding the Draw-Tite trailer hitch, part # 76194, and a hitch mount bike rack. Hitch mount racks...

All of the other racks have cradles spaced about 5 or 5-1/2" apart and while you wouldn't think that extra 1-1/2" to 2" would make a difference it really does when it comes to loading and unloading the bikes. This bike rack does come with a cable lock for the bikes...

  • Bike Rack Recommendation for a 2019 Jeep Renegade

Trunk mount racks are great for short distances and lighter bikes because they're less expensive and they don't require anything additional like a hitch or roof rack. The best bike racck we carry for SUVs or vehicles that have a hatch, like your 2019 Jeep Renegade, is the Hollywood Racks Over-the-Top.

  • Most Secure Way to Carry 3 Bikes on a 2014 Toyota RAV4
  • There are a couple security features with the Yakima FullBack 3 Bike Rack # Y02633. To start, the nylon straps are reinforced to make them much more difficult to cut, so that makes it a little bit more difficult than just cutting them off quickly and taking the whole rack. The most important feature on this rack is that there is a fully steel reinforced security cable that stores inside the trunk for another layer of security, and would take a great deal of time to try to cut through.

Instead, I recommend the Hollywood Racks Over-the-Top 3 Bike Rack part # HRF2-3 which is actually the only trunk mount bike rack option we have for a Infiniti QX60 due to the design of the rear bumper/hatch.

These are both solid options for a trunk-mounted bike rack but between the two I recommend the Thule Gateway Pro # TH88VR.

  • Best Trunk-Mount 3-Bike Rack for 2018 Mazda 3 Hatchback
  • Hatch-mount bike carriers for your 2018 Mazda 3 Hatchback are available in 2-bike and 3-bike capacities. No 4-bike trunk racks are made since they would simply be too heavy for a car's sheet metal trunk or hatch. If you can get by with a 3-bike capacity then the rack I recommend is the Thule Raceway PRO 3, part # TH9002PRO. This USA-made carrier is among the best trunk racks made. It features molded nylon construction that is strong yet lightweight; built-in locks are included for the...

  • Bike Rack Recommendation for Carrying 3-Bikes on a 2019 Toyota Highlander
  • If you're wanting to use a trunk mount bike rack then I highly recommend the Hollywood Racks Over-the-Top 3 Bike Rack # HRF2-3 because it is specially designed to keep pressure off of the spoiler on your 2019 Toyota Highlander. All of the other trunk mount options are designed where the straps will be putting pressure on the spoiler. Even though this is okay, over time it could cause damage to the spoiler which is why I recommend this option. Typically we try to steer people away from...

The rear struts that hold up the lift gate aren't rated for much more than the weight of the hatch and can weaken over time which could cause the hatch to unexpectedly close while someone's standing in the way, possibly causing severe injury.

For brand new vehicles like yours you really wouldn't want a trunk rack touching the paint of the vehicle anyway. So you'll need a hitch on both vehicle.
