Re: Bike Racks

Thanks for your replies. I think I"ll have to wait until I get the trailer before I can sort out the bike rack situation. For this summer, I actually only need to bring one bike along (my own), and so I might even put it on the roof of the highlander. That will give me time to sort out the best multi-bike carrier for my new rig.

Re: Bike Racks

You also need to worry about the turning radius.. make sure that the bike wont hit the back of the tow vehicle on tight turns or backing up..

It's a Thule Parkway model 2-bike rack.

How do you like it? Is it the 11/4 with a 2 " adapter? Does it move a lot? Do you have enough room with the spare tire? Thanks Chapi

Chapi, it's the Parkway model for the 2" receiver. No adapter is needed/required. Here's a link to it:

Forgot to add, there is no problem with the spare tire and the bike rack.

Has anyone used the Thule T2 XTR 2" on the back of the trailer , 2 bike model? How sis you find it? Was there enough clearance?

I was looking at the Thule T2 in the store, and it really doesn't look like it extends far enough with the tire mounted, and would need an extension. Really nice bike rack though.

I use a similar rack, The NV | Küat, and there is plenty of room for it behind the tire.
