Will Kuat Sherpa 2.0 Bike Rack Fit 2018 Subaru WRX with EcoHitch Trailer Hitch Installed


Hello, Is the Kuat Sherpa 2.0 2-Bike Platform Rack - 2inch compatible with the EcoHitch for 2018 Subaru WRX 306-X7257 ? I want to be sure the pin aligns properly with the Kuat Sherpa male end before purchasing it. I understand the EcoHitch receiver has limited depth due to the spare tire panel. Thanks! Alex

Yes, the Kuat Sherpa 2.0 2-Bike Platform Rack # SH22G that you referenced will work perfectly with the EcoHitch Trailer Hitch Receiver # 306-X7257 on your 2018 Subaru WRX. The Sherpa 2.0 features a length of 1-5/8 inches from the center of the hitch pin hole to the end of the shank, well under the max 2-1/2 inches that the EcoHitch will allow with a hitch-mounted accessory.

This is an excellent platform-style carrier that uses ratcheting hooks to firmly grip the front wheels on your bikes without any frame contact and a convenient foot lever that you can use to tilt the carrier back for easy cargo access on the Subaru. Locks are also included to secure everything into place and help protect your investments.

I have attached a short video demonstration that you can check out as well.
