Trailer Hitch for a 2017 Chevy Bolt and Thule EasyFold Bike Rack


Can the Curt Trailer Hitch Receiver - Custom Fit - Class I - 1-1/4inch Item # C11457 or Draw-Tite Sportframe Trailer Hitch Receiver - Custom Fit - Class I - 1-1/4inch Item # 24956 be used with a Thule Easy Fold 9032 Bike Rack on a 2017 Chevrolet Bolt? Thank you!

Yes, you can use either Draw-Tite hitch # 24956 or Curt trailer hitch # C11457 with the Thule EasyFold bike rack, # TH903202, on your 2017 Chevy Bolt.

If it were me I would go with the Draw-Tite hitch # 24956 for 2 reasons. First, Draw-Tite does not require the use of a stabilization strap for non-trailer loads like Curt does. If you went with the Curt hitch you would also need to use stabilization strap # 18050. And second customers have reported that the receiver on the Curt hitch hangs down far too low on the Bolt.

The Draw-Tite hitch also has a higher tongue weight rating, 200 pounds, compared to the 100 pound capacity on the Curt hitch. The rack itself weighs 40 pounds leaving you with 160 pounds of leftover capacity for bikes.
