  1. Relocate backup camera or suggestions on bike rack

    Gen 5: 2017-2021 (UK 2018-2022) CR-V
    Hello all, I am currently searching for a new bike rack and was wondering if anyone had suggestions on one that does not block the rear view camera. My other idea was to either move the camera to the rear spoiler or add a second camera there? Has anyone tried this? Thanks

    Racks, Hitches, & Towing
    I have a 2018 EX and was looking at a few trailer bike hitches (platform style).

    Racks, Hitches, & Towing

  10. Bike inside CRV

    Gen 5: 2017-2021 (UK 2018-2022) CR-V
    Well, I wanted to see if bikes would fit standing up in the back with the front wheel off. This to me is the ideal way since they are secure inside the car, but you don't lose all your back seat space necessarily. I loved that the 2nd gen Honda Fit could do that. I have a 56cm cyclocross bike...

    Hi guys -- has anyone recommended installing a trunk-mounted bike rack onto the 2017 CR-V? I own a Thule Archway 2 (9009) inherited from a previous vehicle.

    Hi, Is using a bicycle carrier on a CR-V taboo? I have 2017 EXL-Navigation and none of the carrier dealer websites I’ve checked out will make a recommendation.

  17. Is anyone using the OEM (1.25") hitch on a Gen 4 (12-16) CR-V with a bike rack?

    Racks, Hitches, & Towing
    I'm not really in a position to install a hitch myself, so my choices will be having the local U-Haul dealer install a Class III Hidden Hitch/Draw-Tite hitch (2") or having a Honda dealer install the OEM hitch. I would be using it with a very light bike rack (22 lbs) and 2 bikes, so the total...
