For your 1989 Volkswagen Vanagon you could go with a trunk mounted bike rack like the Hollywood Racks Express part # HRE2 that has been confirmed as a fit.

Or you could go with a hitch mounted option. This will provide a more secure installation and will not touch any painted surfaces of your vehicle like a trunk rack.

The most popular bike rack we carry that has been confirmed to fit this vehicle is the Swagman XTC2 Bike Rack part # S64670. This rack has a ton of positive reviews from our customers who have tried it. Check out the review video I attached for more info.

If you need a hitch the part # 11656 would be correct if you have a 2 wheel drive vehicle or part # C11657 for if you have a 4 wheel drive.

Curt requires the use of their stabilizer strap part # 18050 when using their hitch to carry a non-supported load like a bike rack. I attached a review video for you to check for the strap as well.
