Hi All-
Just got my 2010 RS 7.0 and loving it. I'm thinking about adding a tow hitch to carry a bike or two. But it looks like the center exhaust might conflict with that. Anyone have any experience with this? Advice?

The "problem" with the RS7 is that it has a center exhaust, unique to that model RS.

I just bought a hitch (non RS) (Draw-Tite) and when I was looking, it seems all of them had a note that they would not fit the RS series due to the center exhaust. I think you might be SOL with the RS.

Here is a visual of the RS7 exhaust.


Hitches for xBs use the three bolt holes on the 2 main structure frames on each side to mount the hitch. So, the exhaust and hitch try to occupy the same space, but only one can fit.

On a "normal" routed xB exhaust, the final pipe goes straight back from muffler to the bumper. The 7 makes an "s" bend to the center.

Figured as much...

Thanks for the responses!
I am way too clutzy to deal with a roof mounted bike rack. For sure I'd end up throwing my bike through the window. :clown:

I like the idea of the strap-on rack. Didn't even think of that, I'll have to look it up. Thanks!
