When you’ve only got one or 2 bikes to transport, roof rack carriers are fine, but when you need to a haul a families worth of bikes (up to 132 lbs.) with frames as different as dad’s road bike and junior’s BMX bike, you need the ease and versatility offered by the Rhino-Rack Hitch Mount Bike Carrier. This carrier mounts easily to your vehicle’s 2” receiver hitch, and the easily accessible height of the 4 sets of cradles makes bike loading almost effortless. Each cradle is padded to protect the bike frame finish, and it can be rotated to different angles to fit a wide variety of differently shaped and sized bike frames, from race bikes to mountain bikes. Once installed, durable UV stabilized rubber straps, proven in the harsh Australian outback, secure the bikes to the carrier.
A special locking threaded hitch pin is included to prevent theft of the carrier from the vehicle and to minimize rack wobble, and 2 straps are also included so the bikes can be tied down to prevent swaying and becoming damaged. Padding for the main shaft is supplied to further prevent bike damage during transport. When the tailgate or hatch needs to be opened to gain access to the rear of the vehicle, the lock pin can be removed and the carrier’s main support shaft tilted down for clearance. When not in use, the cradle arms can also be tilted down and locked in position to make parking and garaging easier with the carrier mounted. The lock pins are held to the carrier with lanyards to prevent their loss, and when not needed, the entire carrier can be removed and folded down for easy storage.
The Hitch Mount Bike Carrier comes with hardware and detailed, illustrated instructions. It’s backed by a limited 5-year warranty to the original purchaser against defects in materials and workmanship.
Note: Will not fit all vehicles with rear mounted spare wheel. The clearance is 9” from the mounting hole located on the vehicle’s hitch.179.10Brand: Rhino-Rack Part Number: RBC038

Overall good quality. Strong and not wiggly when all the bolts are tight. The mount lock provided is optional, and I might go with a different type. Carrier can easily be tilted when opening your rear hatch door, and it also folds conveniently when no bikes are on board. I am overall satisfied with the purchase.3 people found this review helpful.Was this review helpful for you? YesNo
