Trailer Hitch and Bike Rack Recommendations for a 2008 Ford Fusion

Question:

I know that some light weight hitches can two but arent recommended for bike racks because of the torsion effects causing by swaying bikes on the rack. Is this one strong enough for a bike rack with 2 bikes?

Class I trailer hitches such as # C11329 can hold bikes but are limited to 2 bikes and the rack has to be compatible with a Class I hitch. I recommend the BikeWing # B01311 because it is not only Class I compatible but weighs just 12 pounds which will minimize the stress on the hitch. I have linked a video review of this rack for you.

But for your 2008 Ford Fusion I actually recommend Draw-Tite hitch # 24775 for a couple of reasons. First, it costs less. And second it does not require a stabilization strap for non-trailer loads like the Curt hitch does. I have linked a video showing how the hitch installs.
