would you ever consider getting a hitch mounted bike rack or just going to mount them onto you roof?






Did consider a trailer hitch bike rack mount. Was my 1st consideration. Need a hitch 1st. :)Drove me crazy on trying to find one. I am north of 49th. Montreal.

Called U-Haul head office in Canada after reading the thread on the "hitch". No part # 36335 or any other viable one could be found.
Even called U-Haul in the states. I am 45 minutes away from the border. Status quo.
Called the dealership and no hitch is available in NA as of yet.

Attended a Bicycle show. No trailer hitch vendor could provide me with one.

Unfortunately I have no other option than to roof mount the bikes.

As Audi Canada cannot supply a tow bar. I have tried Card. they say it also not available.
The only supply is from England as the q3 was available in 2011 but it could be with a different frame not the same as our Canadian 2015. I have also tried the Hitch Store.

The problem with u-haul is that the local stores and regular call center cannot do an inventory search beyond the local zip code level. Be persistent. Call u-haul and ask them for their national hitch support phone number. Then ask them to locate 36335, which is a discontinued Tiguan hitch. Once you get someone willing to search they should be able to find one of these somewhere. It is a perfect bolt on fit. See my original posts and pictures and good luck.

There is NO frame difference between cars in the the UK and NAR - as Pinballplanet noted even the Tiguan (which is the same platform as the Q3) hitch bolts right up...
