    CRV hitch search is maddening!

    2003 Honda CRV, bought a hitch and now searching for a rack. Dont wanna spend too much and thought the Sportrack 2ez was my answer. I dont think it fits my vehicle but I havent called. What racks are you guys using with the CRV?

    I have an Element and use a Raxter. It's simple, low tech, and durable.

    This one:

    Looks nice but why so much? The Sportrack 2EZ is around $150, just don't think it fits my vehicle.

    If your still sporting the external tire carrier, a hitch mounted rack may need an extension to comfortably hold the bikes. There's always the spare tire mounted racks, but they carry bikes by the top-tube and usually let the bikes bang against each other, as well as many frames just don't jive well with top-tube hangers.

    Raxter expensive? Hardly! I consider it to be one of the reasonably priced rack lines available.

    Here's a new link for you:

    I run a Swagman xtc-2, but can only carry 1 bike. If I was to use a receiver extender, I could likely carry two. Not sure if it overloads the hitch for tongue load, I'd have to do some math...

    Super link, thanks! I had a spare tire rack, it's ok but would never feel comfortable putting two bikes on it. Maybe a better option for those who have the spare mounted in the center. As far as the Raxster I just think it's more in line with the Sportrack 2EZ rather than the Thule T2. I think I may just wait for Yakima to fix the Flipside, kinda get it all with that one.

    I installed the Curt 13535, think the tongue weight is 300. Nice hitch but rattles the he'll outta the muffler, need to bend down hangars.
