Bike Rack Recommendation For Carrying 3 Bikes on a 2012 Honda CR-V


I have a 2012 Honda CRV. I need a bike carrier which will hold 3 bikes. I do not have a trailer hitch on my vehicle. Thanks

I recommend adding a trailer hitch and using a hitch mounted bike rack. Adding a trailer hitch also gives you the ability to tow a small trailer if the situation ever came up or you can use a cargo carrier on trips where you may need more storage.

The most economical hitch that we offer for your vehicle that has the capacity to carry 3 bikes on a bike rack is the Curt Class III Trailer Hitch, # C13119. You can use any bike rack that fits in a 2 inch receiver with this trailer hitch. Curt also requires the use of a stabilization strap like part # 18050 when hauling non-trailer loads such as a bike rack.

I have attached a link to all of the hitch mounted bike racks that we carry that will work, but I recommend looking at the Swagman Trailhead 3 Bike Rack, # S63365. This bike rack has many features at an affordable price. I have attached a demonstration video of this bike rack for you to check out.
