    Toyota Camry Hybrid

    Does anyone use a Camry Hybrid to haul bikes? Do you use a roof rack or rear rack? What did you notice for a mpg drop? We have an 09 and are thinking about using it instead of our truck.

    I use a 1up rear rack for my 1 bike and I haven't noticed any significant drop in my gas efficiency. it's pretty much just having a kid in the backseat of your car.

    I have non hybrid 2012 SE camry.
    I just got the seasucker bomber for 3 bikes and tested yesterday. It works perfectly.
    Didn't want to get hitch as I may want to utilize other car to haul bikes as well and I would have to get a hitch for that as well.

    + 1 on seasuckers. By far the most versatile bike rack out there. I now use them on my MINI coop but have used them from a Camry to Hondas and SUVs. Has never failed me.

    I just sold my 07 Camry and I used the Whispbar from Yakima with the Forklift trays. The Whispbar was not hard on the mpg without bikes, it obviously decreased with bikes on the rack. Even so, it was a very convenient and slick looking set up. I'd be willing to sell the Whispbar bars, I am holding on to the trays. PM me if your interested.

    I believe it is absolutely same. You can buy it from original camry.
    BTW. Why people are so hyped about hybrid cars? In my opinion it doesn;t have enough advantages comparing to electric cars like Tesla or BMW i series. that's my opinion.
