HITCHGATE™ SOLO


When it comes to strength and weight, the Hitchgate™ Solo packs a powerful punch. With the same tow rating as its bigger siblings and the capacity to carry a 35-inch tire (on a mid-sized truck), the Solo is ready for whatever the adventure calls for. The Hitchgate Solo was designed to go lean and low on the next adventure while still being prepared. The Hitchgate Solo’s reduced weight is perfect for those looking to carry a 35-inch (on a mid-size vehicle) or smaller spare tire, and Rotopax fuel cans.


Not only is weight reduced, but so is the overall height of the horizontal support arm which sits 4″ lower than a Hitchgate Classic or MAX. By relocating the truck mount at the *same level* as the vehicle’s receiver hitch, the Solo is uniquely designed to accommodate vehicles that have a tight clearance between the rear hatch/door and the receiver (Ex: Sprinter, Renegade, Tahoe, Grand Cherokee). The Hitchgate Solo is also a phenomenal candidate for Subaru (See Fitment section below) and any vehicle where every pound counts.


The Hitchgate Solo spare tire carrier universally fits on almost all vehicles with a Class III/2″ hitch receiver. This swing-away, spare tire carrier mounts to any 2-inch, Class III hitch receiver and is perfect for SUVs, Jeeps, vans, and pickups. This tough tire carrier secures up to a 35-inch spare tire (on mid-sized vehicles) while maintaining ground clearance with minimal change in departure angles when driving off-road. Release a single latch pin and it opens wide for full access to the vehicle’s cargo space. The Hitchgate Solo line is tow-rated at 7,500 lbs (max trailer weight) and 750 lbs (tongue weight). *These limits may be more than your vehicle’s capacity. ALWAYS stay within the limits of your vehicles tow/tongue ratings)* The tire carrier is rated for 150lbs of total weight. If your tire and wheel reach that limit, you won’t be able to carry any fuel or tools…look towards the Hitchgate Classic or Max for more capacity.

*This is a universal part.


3 Solo Models to choose from:

  • Hitchgate Solo Standard UHG32130 sits at hitch height and is 25″ wide on the support arm. If your hitch is near your rear hatch, probably a good choice.
  • Hitchgate Solo *High Clearance* UHG33187 is a Solo Standard with the horizontal support arm moved 4″ higher. If your hitch is under your bumper/body, probably a good choice.
  • Hitchgate SoloXL UHG32206 is a mirror image of the Solo but is 5″ wider. This allows full-size trucks to carry up to a 35″ tire + and allows full-size vans to open their doors past 90 degrees.

MEASUREMENTS & FITMENT:

  • Solo Standard–> 53lbs Almost all compact and mid-sized trucks, SUVs, and cars with tires up to 35″. Full-sized trucks, SUVs, and cars with tires smaller than 33″. [25″ wide from hitch to pivot bolt, 3.5″ minimum depth from 1st hitch pin to the back of support arm. 4.5″ to the next hitch pinhole. Solo sits at hitch height, rising only 2.5″ above the receiver.]
  • Solo High Clearance–> 54lbs Almost all compact and mid-sized trucks, SUVs, and cars with tires up to 35″. Full-sized trucks, SUVs, and cars with tires smaller than 33″. [25″ wide from hitch to pivot bolt, 3.5″ minimum depth from 1st hitch pin to the back of support arm. 4.5″ to the next hitch pinhole. Solo High Clearance sits 4″ above hitch height, rising 6.5″ above the receiver.]
  • Solo XL–> 56lbs Full-sized trucks, SUVs, and cars with tires larger than 35″ OR those who need the tire to swing further away from the vehicle. [ 30″ wide from hitch to pivot bolt, 3.5″ minimum depth from 1st hitch pin to the back of support arm. 4.5″ to the next hitch pinhole. SoloXL sits at hitch height, rising only 2.5″ above the receiver.]
  • Fitment Calculator–> Multiply the width of the Solo arm you’re interested in x2, then subtract half the diameter of your tire…the sum will give you an estimate of how far away your tire will sit from your hitch and help you choose the Solo that’s right for yours. Solo Standard = 25″, Solo High Clearance = 25″, SoloXL = 30″

Swinging Hitch Option:

Need to swing a bike rack, or hitch-mounted cargo basket out with your Tire? The Hitchgate now has an optional secondary swinging hitch to allow just that. The Solo will still come with a standard stationary receiver designated for towing.

***Bike rack may require hitch extension depending on tire width and bike rack’s tongue length.***
