Trunk Mount Bike Rack Recommendations for a 2006 Honda Odyssey EX-L

Question:

Can you please recommend a non-hitch bike rack for Honda Odyssey 2006 EX-L? Is there one that would still allow me to open the rear hatchback? THANK YOU!

Expert Reply:

There are two rear mounted bike racks that will fit your 2006 Honda Odyssey. For 2 bikes you can use the Hollywood Racks Over-the-Top rack # HRF2. And for 3 bikes # HRF2-3. I have linked a video review of this rack for you.

You will not be able to open the rear hatch with any trunk mount bike rack for several reasons. The vehicle hinges/struts are not rated for the extra weight so the hatch could fall unexpectedly. When opening the hatch the geometry of where the bike rack hooks attach to the vehicle changes and it can end up bending the metal on the vehicle.
