2013 Subaru Outback Premium 2.5i All-Weather+Moonroof Venetian Red Pearl W/ Ivory Coth
We are putting a 2" Receiver hitch on our 2013 Outback 2.5i today and now I am looking at hitch mounted bike racks. Currently our family has my wife's (womens down tube frame) mountain bike, my men's mountain bike and then my son's 16" BMX bike. The following hitches I have looked at online and I was planning to look at REI to see what they look at and maybe try some of them on the Outback. Ones I have looked at are: Yakima Doubledown Ace 4 Bike, Thule Hitching Post 4 Bike, Thule Vertex 4 Bike and the Yakima Bighorn 4 Bike. Out of all of the racks the Thule Vertex 4 Bike looks to be the nicest, but I have no idea. I really do not want to spend a whole lot and I do see them from time to time on craigslist. There is actually a previous generation Yakima Swingdaddy (One that swings away from the vehicle) on there, but the SwingDaddy racks seem to be too bulky looking for the Outback. Im probably sticking with the fold down ones so I can get into the hatch.
