Trailer Hitch and 4 Bike Rack Recommendation for 2012 Nissan Rogue


Which Class III trailer hitch and bike rack will fit a 2012 Nissan Rogue? I want to carry one childs bike and a 20inch bike and two 24inch womens bikes.

First let's start with a hitch. The most popular Class III hitch we carry with other 2012 Nissan Rogue owners is the Curt Hitch part # C13204. I attached an install video for you to check out.

Now for a 4 bike rack that would accommodate all of your bikes well I would recommend the Thule Vertex part # TH9029XT. This rack has plenty of room between frame cradles on arced arms to allow for easy loading and unloading. Also features a tilting mast, anti-rattle hitch pin and anti-sway cradles. Check out the review video I attached.

Since you plan on carrying womens and alternative framed bikes without horizontal top tubes you may also be interested in purchasing a Swagman Easy-Out Women's and Alternative Frame Bike Adapter # 64005 to provide a horizontal top tube on your bikes to provide an attachment point. I attached a review video for this product also. This will allow the bikes to be carried more level and will provide more ground clearance.
