Best Trailer Hitch and Bike Rack for 2003 Volkswagen Jetta TDI


I am needing two things. hitch for my 2003 Jetta TDI and a rack for two bikes, one that is electric Powerfly 4 small. They both have fenders. The second is a standard road bike. What would you recommend? Thanks


Expert Reply:

The trailer hitch I recommend for your 2003 Volkswagen Jetta TDI is the Curt Trailer Hitch Receiver - Custom Fit - Class I - 1-1/4" # C11070. I recommend the # C11070 because it has a gloss black powder coat finish over protective base coat offers superior rust resistance.

This Curt hitch has a maximum tongue weight of 200 lbs and a maximum trailer weight of 2000 lbs. I suggest consulting your owner's manual to verify this is within the weight capacity of your 2003 Volkswagen Jetta TDI.

The bike rack I have for you is the Yakima OnRamp Bike Rack for 2 Electric Bikes - 1-1/4" Hitches - Frame Mount # Y96FR. The Yakima OnRamp is designed to carry bikes with fenders and it also has a ramp for easy loading of your E-bike.
