Trailer Hitch and Bike Rack Recommendation for a 2012 Volvo S60 T5


What type of bike rack should we use to carry 2 bikes and how does the hitch mount?


Expert Reply:

The most popular bike rack we carry that has been confirmed to fit this vehicle is the Thule Camber 2 part # TH9058. We asked our demo and install guys to name their favorite, most easy-to-use bike racks and this one showed up in nearly everyone's top three. Check out the review video I attached for more info.

For a hitch you would want the Draw Tite part # 75916 which attaches to the rear impact bar of the vehicle. I attached a diagram that shows this as well.

If you plan on carrying any women's 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 to be carried more level and will provide more ground clearance.
