Review of the Thule Hitch Bike Racks on a 2020 GMC Yukon XL


John: Hey guys. John here from etrailer.com and today on our 2020 GMC Yukon XL we're going to take a look at the Thule Camber bike rack. This is designed for one and a quarter inch and two inch hitches and it's a great way to carry four bikes on the back of your Yukon. This not only frees up room inside your Yukon to fit more cargo or passengers, but it means you're not going to be cramming the bikes into the back of your vehicle.So take a closer look here, you can see our bike is secured at three different points. Two ratchet straps on top, and then one here with the anti sway cradle. The anti sway cradle is designed to help limit the movement of your bike while you're heading down the road so that your bikes won't come in contact with each other or the vehicle.To remove the bike, simply press here and loosen up the ratchet strap to remove it and we'll kind of walk our bike back.

One thing I would like to point out is the cradles here have a lower profile than a lot of other bike racks out there, which makes it a lot easier to remove your bike.Taking a closer look at the cradles here, you can see there are groves here. These are designed to accommodate the brake cables on your bike so that the frame of your bike doesn't smash them into the cradles. Let's secure straps. You want to make sure you do this before you head down the road, even with the bikes unloaded.One, a feature about this bike track compared to other models is this has seven inches of space on center between the cradles, which is a bit more from other bike racks out there. It allows you more room to accommodate different types of bikes.

It makes it a little easier to fit them together.Go ahead and grab some measurements here for you so you can determine if this is the correct bike for your application, bike rack for your application. From the rear most part of the bumper out to the furthest edge of the arm here, it's going to measure about 42 inches. That's a really good measurement to keep in mind if you're going to be trying to park this into your garage with the bikes loaded. You'd be able to determine if this will fit in your garage.The closest point of the bike rack to our Yukon here, it's going to be this portion of it. It's going to measure about two and three quarter inches from the rear most part of our bumper, a little close, but that's really no concern about the bike rack coming in contact with your vehicle.Bike rack does feature a quick release lever here, allows us to lower the arms for more room.

If we're going to keep the bike rack loaded while we we're maybe again trying to pull into the garage, we'll go ahead and take a measurement here so you can determine if that'll work for you. From the rear most part of our bumper to about the cradles is probably about 12 and a half inches, 13 inches. Really reduces the overall length of the bike rack. You should have no problem fitting it in your garage with this still attached.Another feature here, it has a tilting option function and you pull the quick release lever and you can rotate the bike rack down, maybe. there we go.

Which allows you to gain access to the rear hatch of your Yukon so if you have any cargo back here, you don't have to remove the bike rack just to get at that.The quick release levers, once you put the bike rack in place you can hear an audible click. That means you have it in place, it's locked, it's secured, it's not going to be moving around.I would like to point out down here there's a threaded anti-rattle hitch bolt. This really helps to limit the movement of the bike rack in the hitch receiver. As you can see, I'm moving the bike rack here and it's moving the actual vehicle. We do have upgraded version of this on etrailer.com, which gives you a lock and there is a cable lock that you can add to this bike rack as well for extra security.And with that, it's going to complete our look at the Thule Camber four bike rack on our 2020 GMC Yukon XL. Thanks for watching. Here on our test course, we'll start by going through the slalom. This is going to show us the side to side action. This simulates turning corners or evasively maneuvering.Once we get to the alternating speed bumps, we'll see the twisting action. This will simulate hitting a curb or pothole, or driving over uneven pavement. Once we get to the full speed bumps, we'll see the up and down action. This will be just like driving in and out of a parking lot, parking garage, or driveway.
