Hello everyone....I own a 2008 Saturn Outlook XE that does not have a hitch. I was wondering what type of bike rack is available for me to use for 2 bikes. Does anyone use a bike rack on their outlook.
I bought a valley hitch from Uhaul for $140 and installed it myself. I bought a 4 bike rack at a local sporting goods store for $100. I only have 2 bikes, but the 4 bike rack was only $20 bucks more and that way there can be some space in between.
I had a rack that you can attach with straps, but it did not work well, came loose and put a small ding in my tail gate :angryfire:
The trailer hitch was easy to install and only took about 30 minutes. Uhaul could have done it for $20. For me it was worth getting the hitch.
I have a four bike hitch-mounted rack that I used on my Equinox. I don't have a hitch on my Outlook, but I am going to get one added so I can use my rack. I got my rack at www.orsracksdirect.com . Check the site, they are usually running specials, and sometimes you can get free shipping, which is great for a heavy bike rack!
