Will the Kuat Transfer 3 Bike Carrier Fit a 2015 Volvo V60 with Class III Trailer Hitch Installed

Question:

Hello, I have a 2015 Volvo V60 and am interested in the Kuat Transfer 3 based on price/no frame contact. I know Id like a 2inch hitch and not the Curt due to straps required but am wondering if the hitch/rack combo will work on the car clearance wise the hitch looks like it doesnt poke out much.

Expert Reply:

If you take a look at the diagram I have included you will see that the receiver is recessed under the vehicle a little when hitch # 75916 is installed on a 2015 Volvo V60, maybe 6 inches from the back of the rear bumper to the center of the hitch pin hole.

On the Kuat Transfer 3, # TS03G, it measures 7-1/2 inches from the center of the pin hole back to the pivot bracket when in the down position but just 5 inches to the closest part of the carrier when folded up. So it will not fit when folded up.
