2 Bike Recommendation for 2 inch Hitch, Platform Option and Hanging Option


Hello, I have a 2017 Subaru Forester with a 2inch trailer hitch. Im looking for a 2 bike hitch bike rack for this vehicle. Ive been looking at the Swagman XC S64650, the Swagman Trailhead S63360 and the Pro Series Q-Slot PS63134. Do all of these fit my vehicle and could you give your pros and cons with them? I have read where the Swagman Trailhead may stick out further than other racks, can you also comment on this? Thanks,

The most popular bike rack we carry that has been confirmed to fit this vehicle is the Thule Roadway 2 part # TH912XTR. 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.

The other racks you mentioned are great racks in their own right, but at the price point the Roadway is the best option for a hanging style rack.

Or if you wanted a platform the # HR200Z is the winner because of how stable it is in the hitch of a vehicle. Check out the test course video I attached for it. It blows the other racks you mentioned out of the water.
