FAQ:

Q: Will I be able to get in to the back of my vehicle with a BigHorn 4 installed? A: The BigHorn 4 can be tilted down enough to allow most hatches or double gate doors to open fully. Bikes need to be removed first! To keep the bikes on and have enough clearance for asymmetrical doors and tailgates a “gate” style carrier should be used.

Q: What type of trailer hitch does it use? A: This system requires a 1¼” receiver hitch, class II or greater. Only a Yakima 1” adapter can be used to fit to be a 1” hitch.

Q: Can I add more bikes? A: No. Class II hitches can carry a maximum of 4 bikes.

Q: Can I use this product if I have a spare tire on the back of my vehicle? A: Probably not. Receiver hitches and spare tires vary greatly, so only a test fit at a dealer will tell you for sure. As a very rough gauge (no promises) the BigHorn 4 has about 8 1/2” of clearance between the hitch-bolt hole and the inner side of the upright mast. If it looks like that’s enough clearance, try one on at your dealer. Use of a hitch extender is not recommended as it would increase leverage and lack anti-wobble features. Should you decide to use one anyway, be advised that stability and capacity will be reduced.

Q: Is there a weight limit? A: Maximum load is 4 bikes/120 lbs.

Q: How much play is normal (when in the hitch)? A: Hitches, like anything else, will have slight variations in dimensions and that’s a fact of life when anything is manufactured. The critical dimension for a hitch is the I.D. or Interior Dimension (the space inside the hitch). The critical dimension for a hitch product is the O.D. or Outside Dimension of the tongue. The team has designed the tongues of our new hitch racks to allow no play, but rarely, some hitches out there may have a slightly oversized I.D., causing slight play in the hitch. Have them tighten the hitch bolt completely to tighten it up and reduce play.
