Tilting Bike Rack that Will Let Tailgate Down on a 2007 Honda Element


If I use this rack along with the 2007 Honda Element Draw-lite hitch, will there be enough clearance to open the rear tailgate completely flat with the bike rack tilted fully forward?


Expert Reply:

I do have a recommendation for you but I am not confident that the Curt rack, # C18029, will tilt down far enough to lower the tailgate on your 2007 Honda Element.

But take a look at the Kuat Beta bike racks such as # B202-2 for 2 inch hitches or # B202-114 for 1-1/4 inch hitches. This racks tilt down much further so clearance for the tailgate won't be a problem.

On your Element the 2 inch Draw-Tite hitch is # 75659. The 1-1/4 inch version is # 24720 (excludes SC models).
