Question:

Do you have a trunk mounted rack that safely fits a 2020 Honda CR-V hybrid model? One that can be used with the spoiler on the roof?

I have two great options for you. The first is the Saris Bones 2 Bike Rack # SA805BL. It also comes in a three-bike version # SA803. They are great with cars with spoilers due to their arched feet that act as an extra support for the straps that go up and over your spoiler.

My next recommendation is the Yakima Fullback 2 Bike Rack # Y02634 and the three-bike version # Y02633. This is a very sturdy and easy to use bike rack. It also comes with a cable lock for extra protection. The FullBack uses a hub setting to adjust the angle for installation, so if you purchase this for you CR-V, your hub setting is 5. I attached a video below where you can see it in action on a 2012 Honda CR-V.

Between the two, I'm personally a fan of the Saris Bones due to its versatility. It's also a confirmed fit for the Touring trim, which is a rare feature among trunk racks. I attached a picture below of the Saris Bones EX 3 # SA803 on a Honda CR-V.

I've noticed how some Honda CR-V trims (especially Touring) have automatic rain-sensing windshield wipers, so you would need to make sure your rear wipers are OFF while using a trunk mounted bike rack to make sure nothing gets accidentally damaged.
