Review of the Thule Hitching-Post-Pro Hitch-Bike Racks on a 2015 Chevrolet Silverado 1500


Today on our 2015 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 model we're going to be doing a test fit on the Thule Hitching Post Pro. This is a folding and tilting 4-bike rack. It's been designed for use with 1-1/4" or 2" hitches. The part number on it is TH934XTR. To begin our test fit we'll slide the shank of the rack right into the receiver tube of our hitch. We'll then line up our threaded pinhole with our hitch pinhole. With those in line we can take our provided anti-rattle bolt; we'll thread this in.

With it just hand tight you'll see we've still got some movement and some play there so we're going to use a wrench and tighten our bolt on down. That tight, you'll see that movement and that play is gone. Now that we've got the rack on our truck let's go over a few clearance measurements. Looks like we're going to have about 15-1/4" worth of ground clearance. The nearest point of the rack to the rear of our vehicle is going to be about 9" away. It looks like overall we've added about 17-1/2" to the length of our Silverado. There's a gold pin and clip located here at the front side of the rack.

It's going to allow us to tilt the rack out and away from our vehicle. As you can see, it's actually going to allow us to fully open our tailgate, which isn't always common with the tilt-away style rack and a pickup. Just bring our mast back into its original location and slide that pin back through the secure it in place here. We'll then move right up to the top. Got another pin and clip.

Pulling that one allows us to swing out our dual cradle arms. With our arms in the extended pin after we reinsert the pin here we're going to get another measurement. Looks like now we've added about 39-1/2" to the length of the truck. To load up our bike we're going to undo our cradle straps here. Then we'll grab our bike, place it up into our cradles, and then we'll secure it with our straps. Got our anti-sway cradle there on the bottom.

This is going to keep our bike from moving side to side too much as we're going around town, helps to reduce the bike to rack or bike to bike contact there. Just like that we've got the bike loaded up and it's time to head down the road. Now that we've taken a good look at the Thule Hitching Post Pro and how it's going to work on our 2015 Chevrolet Silverado, let's now take a look and see how that bike rack performed when they had it out on the test course. 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 a 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. .
