Trailer Hitch and Bike Rack Recommendation for 2019 Toyota Corolla


I just got a 2019 Toyota Corolla and want a trailer hitch so I can use a platform bike rack, what should I get?


Expert Reply:

For your 2019 Toyota Corolla the Draw Tite hitch part # 24913 is the hitch I recommend as it does not require a stabilizer strap when carrying a non-supported load like a bike rack like the Curt requires.

For a bike rack I really like the Saris Freedom Superclamp part # SA4025F.

This is a platform bike rack that only touches the bike at the tires and only weighs 30 lbs. The biggest drawback to platform bike racks has always been the weight of them, but with this rack you get the best of both worlds. The preferred attachment style with the lighter weight.

For a more economically priced bike rack the best option is the Hollywood Racks # HR200Z. This rack is built like a tank as far as sturdiness and unlike other lower priced options is very stable in the hitch it is installed in. Check out the test course video I attached to see more info on that. You'll see it's very solid over bumps as well.
