Trailer Hitch and Bike Rack for 2017 Subaru Forester


I am looking to purchase a hitch and hitch bike rack for my 2017 Subaru Forester. Is this bike rack compatible with the hitch item # E98839? Is this a good combination for my car? Thank you.


Expert Reply:

Yes, trailer hitch # E98839 fits your 2017 Subaru Forester and Reese Eclipse 4 Bike Rack # 63124 is compatible.

This is a very good economical option for your Forester and the Eclipse will allow you to carry 4 bikes so long as they do not exceed the 30 lb per bike weight limit. If you are looking for locks to protect your investments you can use Cable Lock # e98891 to secure your bikes to the rack and Anti-Rattle Hitch Lock # HE6001 to secure the Eclipse to your hitch.

Additionally, please note that when using any hanging rack like the Reese Eclipse 4 Bike Rack # 63124 you'll need bike frame adapter bar # 64005 if your bike is dual-suspension, has a step-through frame or you want to carry a small children's bike. The bar will give those bikes a horizontal mounting point so they can be carried by the rack.
