Review of the Thule Vertex 4 Hitch Bike Rack on a 2013 Dodge Durango

Today on our 2013 Dodge Durango well be test fitting the Thule Vertex four bike carrier, part number TH9029. To begin our test fit well slide the shank of the carrier into the opening of the hitch, line up our pin holes, thread our anti-rattle bolt through the pin holes and tighten with a wrench. Now well go ahead and go over a few clearance measurements to see how the bike carrier and this vehicle will fit together. Theres about 4inches of ground clearance. The closest part of the carrier to the closest part of the vehicle here at the rear bumper is about five inches. With the cradle arms folded down weve added about 11 inches to the overall length of the vehicle.

Now well go ahead and pull the grey lever at the top of the mast to swing the cradle arms out and well measure from the cargo door to the end of the cradle arms, and well get a measurement of 37 inches. To access the cargo area well lift the grey handle at the bottom of the mast to tilt the mast down. This will allow us to have access to our cargo door. To load the bike, well make sure that the mast is in its upright position. Well undo the cradle straps, well set the bike into the frame cradles and secure it with the straps.

That completes todays test fit for the Thule Vertex four bike carrier, part number TH9029 on our 2013 Dodge Durango.
