I have a 2014 mustang convertible and I really would like to start bringing my bike places to ride. I do not know whether to get a hitch and use a bike rack or use a trunk rack ..trunk rack kinda scares me-ha....any input would be appreciated...thank u

Since you have a convertible, you're kind of stuck with either a trunk rack or trailer. I'd go with a trunk rack, if you're only dealing with one or two bikes.

I have never seen a trunk rack that, regardless of how careful one is, didn't eventually result in a scratch or two (at least bungee the pedals). My daughter's '09 coupe is one of them. That leaves a hitch mount. Hitch receivers look funky on a Mustang, but not as bad as scratches. Perhaps it's time to add an F-150 to the heard.

ha....yes not gonna do the trunk rack as it scares me that it will scratch the car....as far as the hitch..I've watched a few videos and it doesn't look as bad as one would think. So I think that's what I'm going to go with. Thanks so much!

Watch out! Receiver hitches are made differently. Some have much of the main body exposed, and others conceal it really well so you just see the actual receiver. A big ugly steel tube sticking out from under your convertible is just what you want, right? 😝😝

Curt makes one that is intended to integrate with the body and hide the hitch as much as possible (part #11210).

You don't have the California special do you?
