Review of the SportRack Escape 3 Hitch Bike Rack on a 2012 Dodge Grand Caravan


Today on our 2012 Dodge Caravan we're going to test fit the SportRack Escape 3 Bike Carrier, part number A30403. Our vehicle is equipped with a two-inch hitch, and with our bike rack already preassembled and the two-inch bushing installed on the bike rack shank we can go ahead and slide it directly into the receiver tube of the hitch. And then we'll install and tighten down our anti-rattle bolt and safety clip. As you can see with our anti-rattle bolt tightened down it really takes out any movement between the bike rack and the hitch. Now let's go ahead and folds the arms down on the bike rack so we can see what it looks like in its stored position. Now we can go ahead and take a couple of measurements.

From the upright of the bike rack to the nearest point of the bumper is six inches, the back end of our bike rack to the ground give us ten inches of ground clearance. Now we can go ahead and tilt the bike rack away from the vehicle and check for rear cargo access. Alright, as you can see, with our bike rack in the down position we have plenty of rear cargo access. Now let's go ahead and put our bike rack back into the upright position and we'll go ahead and put our carrying arms back into their upright position. Now we can prepare to go ahead and load a bike.

First we'll undo the hold down straps. Now with our bike rack ready we'll go ahead and load up our bike. And there you have it. In just a few simple steps we have secured our bike to the bike rack and the bike rack to the vehicle. Now we're ready to hit the road.

And that does it to our test fit of the SportRack Escape 3 Bike Carrier, part number A30403 on our 2012 Dodge Caravan.
