Yakima BigHorn 4 - 1.25 inch Reviews
Greying_Geezerrated this item 4 out of 5 on 12/28/2008:
Notes: 1) On a Class 1 hitch, the carrier is limited to 3 bikes, 90 lb. 2) You'll need a Yakima TubeTop or equivalent to carry a step-through frame (i.e. woman's traditional bike frame and probably some full suspension with the U frame) 3) With the aforementioned TubeTop, the deadlock cable is useless. I've been using the hitch for 4 years and am very happy with it. Originally used on the Camry and on a '97 Dodge Caravan, both with 1.25" receivers. The fold-down feature was great with the Caravan. The new RAV4 has a 2" receiver so I've replaced the BigHorn tongue with the 2" one and use an adaptor with the Camry. If your vehicle has a swinging door like the RAV4, buy the SwingDaddy carrier. Warning: In 2005 we drove 200 km on a gravel road with the bikes on the Camry. The gravel pitted the rims of the bikes on the forward side, but also (apparently) bounced up against the rear of the trunk lid and pitted the finish coat. A year later I took the car to the body shop to have the trunk repainted. If you're driving on gravel, install mudflaps or use a roof rack. Also, on that long trip the bike cradles slid on the support arms, the bikes rubbed against each other and wore a small hole in the side of one saddle. I subsequently cut ABS plumbing pipe into spacers to keep the cradles apart. It's an easy fix and, being black, doesn't impair the appearance of the carrier.
