4-Bike Hanging-Style Hitch Rack for Use in 1-1/4-Inch and 2-Inch Hitches

Question:

What is the weight of the Thule Hitching Post Pro - Folding Tilting 4 bike Rack TH934XTR? I am a 54 year old woman and would be attaching and taking the bike rack on and off my 2016 Highlander by myself. Thanks for any help.

Helpful Expert Reply:

Thule's Hitching Post Pro hitch bike rack # TH934XTR has a shipping weight of 41-lbs, so by the time you remove the packaging materials from the equation the rack's actual weight is right around 38-lbs. This is a fairly average weight for a 4-bike rack. This USA-made 4-bike carrier offers excellent value and the flexibility to work well in both 1-1/4-inch hitches and the 2-inch hitches made for your 2016 Toyota Highlander.

For a similar 4-bike hanging-style rack that weighs a lot less you might consider the Malone Hanger 4, part # MPG2124, which weighs only 22-lbs. This rack includes an anti-wobble locking hitch pin (the Thule rack does not). You can see more on this quality rack option by clicking on the linked video.

The two linked help articles on hitch racks will also give you useful information to make the best choice for your specific bikes.
