Best Trailer Hitch for Hauling a Bike Rack With a 2016 Nissan Sentra


For 2016 Nissan Sentra 1.8 SV CVT 4 door passenger car, to use Kuat 1 1/4inch Bike rack , is Curt C11349 good ? Or advise the best fit hitch. Thanks.

Although the Curt Hitch # C11349 that you mentioned is a good option, I recommend installing the Draw-Tite Hitch # 24907. The Curt hitch requires you to use a support or stabilizing strap, like part # 18050, with all non-trailer loads, like bike racks and cargo carriers. Not using the strap will void your warranty.

Draw-Tite does not have that requirement for their hitches which is why I default to that hitch instead of the Curt. The Draw-Tite hitch has a Max Gross Trailer Weight of 2,000 lbs and a Max Tongue Weight of 200 lbs.

If your Kuat bike rack does not come with a hitch lock I recommend using part # HL1 to secure the bike rack to your hitch and help deter theft. We also carry a variety of bike locks for our Kuat bike racks that are bike rack specific and will help deter theft of your bikes. I have attached a link to the page where you can find the bike locks.
