I highly recommend the Thule 964 Revolver 4-Bike Carrier

I just got this Thule Revolver 4-Bike Carrier

It fits the 2" Curt hitch I had installed and has some great features:
* Pivots to the side even when loaded to allow cargo access
* Locks in place when pivoted
* Folds down when not in use
* Integrated cable lock which hides away when not in use
* Locking hitch pin to secure the rack on the car

I love being able to get into the trunk even when the bikes are loaded up, which was the biggest reason I got this one. Plus, since I'm an Amazon Prime user, 2-day shipping was free! It's very highly rated (4.5 out of 5 stars and 24 customer reviews) online.

Product Features
* Compatibility with 2 inch hitches
* Max Load of 4 bikes, 140lbs (63.5kg)
* Integrated Lock Included
comment I have this Thule too. I love the integrated cable lock, makes securing our 4 bikes (2 adults, 2 kids) that much easier. The bike frame stabilizer support is a nice touch too. - rosie 6 years, 8 months ago

Amazon: "4 bike hitch swing"

A search for "4 bike hitch swing" on Amazon returns three other swing-away bike racks:

* Thule Revolver Hitch Bike Carrier with Retractable Locking Cable - 4 Bike

* Allen Deluxe Swing Away 4-Bike Hitch Mount Rack 2-Inch Receiver and

* Surco DBR400 OSI Swing Away Hitch Mount Bike Rack, 2" Receiver, Up To 4 Bike Capacity

The Thule has the most reviews (4.5 out of 5 stars with 23 customer reviews), followed by the Allen (4 out of 5 stars with 17 customer reviews) and then the Surco (4 out of 5 stars with 2 customer reviews).

Also - Yakima Swingdaddy 4 Bike Rack

My roommate has the Yakima Swingdaddy 4 Bike Rack. It's Yakima's version of the Thule Revolver, but it's a whole dollar less expensive, w00t!

Like the Thule, you can swing it out of the way even when loaded with up to four bikes. Very handy when you need to get something out of the back of your car halfway through your trip! Good luck shopping!

Re: I want a 4-bike hitch rack

I, too, live in NYC. I like your recommendations here and have done a lot of research too. Did you have someone in NYC install the hitch to your RX350? Lexus Manhattan apparently has their own brand of hitch for 3xs the price. I like etrailer, spent a lot of time on the phone with their customer service and they were knowledgeable and helpful. I am inclined to order the hitch and the Thule from them but need it sent to a mechanic who can do the installation. Please share the info if you were happy with your person. Thanks.
comment Hi Jenster, I actually bought my hitch and got it installed at a little body shop that my in-laws recommended up in Connecticut. I think it is a pretty straightforward operation. Mine is bolted (not welded) right onto my Lexus RX400h frame. Make sure and shop around a little online before buying the bike rack, because prices vary widely. Since I am an Amazon Prime user, I bought mine from them (free 2-day shipping even for my large, heavy Thule bike rack!). It's a really great and well-built rack. So convenient to be able to open the hitch even when the bikes are loaded. - timfou 6 years, 2 months ago
