Trailer Hitch for a 2014 Toyota Sienna and Thule Hitching Post Pro Bike Carrier

Question:

Thule post pro 4 bike hitch rack supports both 1.25inch and 2inch receiver. Which one is recommended as I am getting new now. Thanks

Expert Reply:

The Thule Hitching Post Pro bike carrier # TH934XTR does fit both 1-1/4 inch and 2 inch trailer hitches using the included sleeve that fits on the bike carrier shank. With the adapter sleeve on it fits 2 inch hitches. If given the option of a 1-1/4 inch or 2 inch hitch I always recommend the 2 inch hitch.

A 2 inch trailer hitch is going to be sturdier and have more accessory options than 1-1/4 inch hitches. And since this carrier has a threaded hitch bolt to limit movement of the carrier in the shank the rack will be very stable when used in either a 1-1/4 inch or 2 inch hitch.

the most popular trailer hitch for your 2014 Toyota Sienna is # C13105. I have included a link to a video showing installation of the hitch and a video showing the bike carrier on a similar Sienna.

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 would) then I recommend using bike adapter bar # 64005. This will allow you to carry those bikes more level and will provide better ground clearance. I have to use these adapters and without them my wife's bike would be at a severe angle and I would not be able to load my son's bike at all. I have linked a video showing how the adapter works.
