Recommended Hitch for 2020 Nissan Murano and Bike Rack to Carry Heavy E-Bikes  


Hi, I wanted to get a recommendation on a bolt on trailer hitch for a 2020 Nissan Murano. I’m also looking for a bike rack that I could potentially put two Step thru E Bikes onto. These bikes weigh a good amount, so keeping that in mind with any suggestions. Thanks

For a hitch for your 2020 Nissan Murano I recommend using the etrailer Trailer Hitch Receiver - Custom Fit - Matte Black Finish - Class III - 2" # e98907, which will give you a 2" hitch with a durable powder coating. This is a custom fit hitch that will bolt right up to the frame of your Murano and doesn't require any drilling.

For the bike rack I recommend using the Swagman E-Spec Bike Rack for 2 Electric Bikes - 2" Hitches - Frame Mount # S94FR, which has a capacity of 70-lbs per bike, so it's ideal for heavy e-bikes. If your bikes have fat tires you'll also need the Fat Tire Adapter for Swagman Bike Racks # S64679. Since your bikes have step-through frames you will need bike frame adapter bars like the # 64005, but the E-Spec is a great rack with a high capacity that can be used on the 2" hitch recommended above. I also really like that it comes with a locking hitch pin and the ratcheting arms lock, as well, so everything is always going to be secure.

I've linked some installation and review videos of these parts for you to check out, as well.
