Trunk Mount Bike Rack for a 2013 Mercedes ML350 with Rear Spoiler

Question:

Will this rack work on this vehicle? It seems to me that the straps have to go over the top spoiler to reach the slots at the top of the rear hatch, and it looks like they will bend the spoiler downward, I carry only one bike at a time for just a few miles and would like to avoid installing a trailer hitch.

Since your 2013 Mercedes ML350 has the spoiler at the top of the rear hatch you will need to use the Hollywood Racks Over-the-Top bike rack # HRF2. This rack has a unique design and extra arm that moves the upper straps up higher to go over the spoiler. All of the other trunk mount bike racks would end up putting stress on the spoiler which it is not rated for. The Over-the-Top bike rack is the perfect solution.
