hollywood racks e bike loaded

The TRS SE platform-style hitch bike rack makes it simple to carry 2 standard or fat tire bikes on the rear of your vehicle. This rack uses ratcheting hooks, wheel stops, and straps to hold your bikes by the wheels with no frame contact. A locking hitch pin with an anti-rattle system tightens the rack's shank to your hitch receiver to prevent it from rattling around inside the receiver. Also, the rack tilts down with bikes loaded and folds up when not in use.


Wheel-Mount Design for Easy Bike Loading

trs hooks and wheel stops

The rack uses a wheel-mount design that allows you to quickly load and carry bikes with no frame contact. It includes wide wheel stops that accommodate tires up to 4-1/2" wide and padded, ratcheting hooks on pivoting arms that secure your bikes by the wheels. The release buttons allow each hook to slide up the ratcheting arm for bike removal.


trs wheel straps

The wheel trays accommodate bicycles with wheelbases up to 48" and include ratcheting wheel straps to keep your bikes in place.


Folding, Tilting Design

trs tilting rear hatch

The rack tilts, with or without bikes loaded, for easy access to your vehicle's rear cargo area. Simply remove the pivot pin, pull the bottom quick-release spring pin, and lower the rack.


trs folded

The rack also folds up against the back of your vehicle when it's not in use. To raise the rack, put the pivoting arms and wheel stops in the stowed position, pull the quick-release pin, and lift.


Tool-Free Installation with Anti-Rattle Device

trs tilting rear hatch

The TRS SE easily installs in your hitch with the included hitch pin. Just slide the shank into your receiver and insert the hitch pin. An integrated anti-wobble handle on the front of the unit tightens the rack's shank to your hitch receiver to prevent it from rattling around inside the tube. You don't need to pull out a wrench every time you install the rack on your hitch - just turn the handle to keep the rack from rattling.


Complete Security for Bikes and Rack

cable lock

The TRS comes with locks for both the rack and your bikes to deter theft. The lock pod on the hitch pin and the 8' long security cable lock are conveniently keyed alike.

This fit perfectly on the back of my Jeep Wrangler Unlimited JK. The assembly instructions along with a YouTube video made putting it together pretty easy. I love the hinge pin lock and bike lock. Can’t wait to take the bikes on the road! 552905



- HR3500
by:

We were able to assemble the bike rack without too much problem and so far really like it. The bikes fit on very well and we especially like the fact we can still open our SUV back hatch with bikes still on. We haven’t done a big road test yet but feel the rack is very stable. 615761

Very happy with my rack use it constantly I recommend the 3500 which comes with locks 633291

by:

Read the reviews online and found they were correct when I purchased, received, and assembled this product. I am happy with its apparent sturdiness and quality. My only disappointment is that it doesn’t have a feature that would allow the mounted bikes to be swung down to allow rear hatch access when needed to get access to the interior of the vehicle from the back. Assembly was reasonably easy. I would suggest that the instructions specify that the bolts that attach the crates to the frame are supposed to hang loose in the long slot on the underside, but I think it might be easier to assemble if the carriage bolts had pre-drilled holes in the top side of the cradles that lined up with the holes in the frame. 656671


Comments

Actually, the rack is capable of being tilted rearward away from the vehicle while the bikes are in place, as shown in the video Ive linked for you. The geometry of the rear hatch opening and the nature of the bikes involved will dictate if the rear hatch of the vehicle will clear the bikes allowing full cargo area access, but on most vehicles the hatch will clear.

This is one well built thoughtfully engineered bike rack. How do I know.....this is the third brand I ordered. I returned the other two. I have a Grand Cherokee and two fat bikes. I wanted a rack that could tilt with bikes on board to allow the dog access to cargo space. This is easy to load, tilts by removing one pin, and very stable due to the hitch tightening system. Well done Hollywood!! 576266

I had been researching platform bike carriers for a while and after comparing several i settled on the Hollywood Racks TRS SE, it seemed to fulfill all my requirements and at a great price from etrailer. I watched the installation and test course videos and promptly added it to my cart, shipping was fast and the rack arrived in good condition. Assembly was easy, although I did not time it, every thing went together seamlessly. I have a pickup truck and was hoping that I could open the tailgate while the bike rack was tilted down, no luck but it gives plenty of access to get in the canopy and bed anyway. We'll be hauling two 27+ mountain bikes with large (not fat) tires ant this rack accommodates them perfectly without needing to buy additional accessories. 597040

I purchased the 3500 model for a 2-inch hitch for my 2004 Toyota 4Runner. I've had it for a month now and it has worked well. It took just over an hour to assemble it and the instructions for the most part were easy to follow although it would behoove you to read it through once before you even start putting parts together. The rack has pretty much stayed on the vehicle for the past month and I use it two to three times a week to commute to work. The bike is on the rack for the 26 miles roundtrip to the ferry terminal and it hasn't given me any problems. Service and prompt delivery was much appreciated. I even noted that the link for installation instructions was broken and Anna responded immediately and I now see that it is there! One thing that my photos will show is that if you have a flat handlebar bike in the position closest to the vehicle the hatch may not fully open because the handlebar will prevent it. Not an issue with me since I use it for commuting and don't need to access the hatch. I think the price is worth it since I wanted this type of rack and it was difficult to find anything with this quality and features in the range. Four stars only because I've only had it for only a month so not sure how well it will hold up in the months to come. I also much appreciate the videos of the rack on the etrailer website. Thanks, etrailer! Arthur 483714

This is our second Hollywood bicycle carrier. The first one is still in use as needed or loaned to friends. Our new carrier is for my wife's Subaru Outback mostly for our fat bikes and ease of use for her convenience. The carrier arrived in perfect shape and in a timely manner. Instructions were easy to follow and the tools included do an adequate job, although I used my wratchet set to speed things up. I took my time and still ackomlished the build in under an hour. This is a very sturdy unit made of nice materials and should last years. I don't know if I would have gotten any better product at twice the price. I had a very pleasant buying experience with etrailer and would recommend them to anyone. 512564


Comments

After almost a year and to be honest I havent given it much thought. Thats a good thing because it performs perfectly. It stays on the vehicle most of the time and is always ready to use. We live on a gravel road and no damage. Would buy another if needed if it were hit or stolen.

My husband and I have been raving to each other about how the etrailer site was the best site we have ever visited and ordered from, the information given was more than thorough, the prices were good, the customer service was speedy and knowledgeable, the shipment came faster than expected. The bike rack was high quality, easy to put together, fits our vehicle as the etrailer rep said it would, the bikes are easy to load and tilt, and it all travels securely. The shipment came without the hitch and bike locks, but etrailer immediately contacted the Hollywood company who honored their part list and sent it in time for our trip. Two etrailer reps kept in contact with each other and us through it all. We are extremely satisfied all around and wish we had this experience with all other businesses! 529645

This product was just what we needed to haul two ebikes, one with 4" tires. Was delivered as stated. Assembly required as expected. 681454

Solid rack. I feel very secure driving with 2 bikes on this rack. I have never had any issues with multiple multiple hour rides. My only complaint is that it is very heavy. It would be great for fat tire or mountain bikes, but if you have light road bikes like I do, this rack may be overkill. 671293

Exceptional bike rack very stable fully loaded on the highway and off road. Security for both the rack and bikes is a nice feature. The quality of the is outstanding. I have transported two heavy e-bikes on this rack with no problems. 667076

Ask the Experts about this Hollywood Racks Hitch Bike Racks

Do you have a question about this Hitch Bike Rack?


  • Recommended 2-Bike Platform Style Hitch Bike Rack for Use on 30-Foot Trailer
  • You are correct that any bike rack that will be used on the back of a trailer or other RV must be strong enough to withstand the extra vertical and lateral stress forces found at the back of such vehicles. There are extra stresses on RVs due to the greater distance between the rear axle and the hitch tube; this greater distance translates into more leverage applied to the rack, and so RV racks are built to be extra-sturdy.

  • Which is a Better Bike Rack Between the RockyMounts MonoRail and the Hollywood Racks TRS
  • Hollywood Racks makes a good bike rack. But with that said I am not impressed with the TRS # HR3000 or # HR3500. I find that the RockyMounts MonoRail # RKY10003 is the superior bike rack between the 2. I will say this about the TRS though; the hook design is compatible with bikes that wider forks compared to the MonoRail. The MonoRail is compatible with Class I hitches whereas the TRS is compatible with Class II only on the 1-1/4 inch side. Both are compatible with 2 inch hitches. All...

  • Hollywood Racks TRS Bike Rack and Lock for Fitting Both 2 inch and 1-1/4 inch Hitches
  • Since you plan to use a bike rack in both a 2 inch and 1-1/4 inch hitch size the best option is the version of the Hollywood Racks TRS that fits both of these hitch sizes without needing an additional adapter. For that you'd want the part # HR3000 that you mentioned as well. This is designed to fit both hitch sizes and would be a great option. For a hitch and bike lock you'd then want the part # HRLHPTC and you'd be set. This comes with a cable lock to lock the bikes to the rack and...

  • Recommended Wheel Mount Bike Rack With Locks for a 2014 Honda Accord
  • I do have an option for you but there is not a 2" trailer hitch available for your 2014 Honda Accord so there is no way to use the Hollywood Racks TRS SE 2-Bike Platform Rack part # HR3500. Instead, I recommend the RockyMounts MonoRail 2 Bike Platform Rack part # RKY10003 which has all of the features that you liked and needed in the above; 60 lb per bike weight capacity, 1-1/4" trailer hitch compatibility, folding for storage, wheel mount, black in color, and it comes with both bike and...

  • Why Bike Racks Are Rated for Motohome But Not Fifth Wheel
  • While we do have a fantastic option for a bike rack that can be used on the back of a fifth wheel trailer but some racks like the Hollywood Racks TRS SE 2-Bike Platform Rack # HR3500 are made sturdy enough to be used on the rear of a motorhome but the extreme movement that occurs at the back of a fifth wheel trailer was deemed too much by the manufacturers. The rear of a trailer can be particularly rough, even in comparison to a motorhome, because trailer suspension is not nearly on...

  • Will the Folded Up Kuat Transfer Bike Rack Clear the Back of a 2018 Subaru Legacy
  • The hitch you have is actually a Draw-Tite hitch # 75673 for your 2018 Subaru Legacy. It looks like in your picture the distance from the center of the hitch pin hole to clear the rear bumper is about 6 inches. That is consistent with what we have found when installing the hitch (see video link). When folded up the Kuat Transfer # TS02B measures 5 inches from the center of the hitch pin hole to the nearest part of the rack so it will not extend out far enough to clear the rear bumper...

  • Will 29er Mountain Bike Fit on Hollywood Racks TRS SE 2-Bike Rack
  • Yes, a 29er would easily fit and work well on the Hollywood Racks TRS SE 2-Bike Platform Rack # HR3500 that you referenced. As long as the wheelbase is less than 48 inches and the weight of the bike is less than 50 lbs this would be a great option.

  • Replacement Rim Protector for Hollywood Racks TRS SE Bike Rack

  • Can Locking Hitch Pin Replace Threaded Hitch Pin on Bike Rack for 2 Trailer Hitch
  • If the bike rack initially comes with a threaded hitch pin like the Malone # MPG2149 or the Curt # C18085 then a locking hitch pin like part # 5201 that you referenced won't actually fit. I do have some alternatives though that you can check out. For a platform style rack like what you were referring to I recommend the Hollywood Racks TRS # HR3500 which has a locking hitch pin like the # 5201 but the anti-rattle feature is integrate into the bike rack shank so it is much easier to utilize....

  • Trailer Hitch Mount Bike Rack for a E-Bike with Fat Tires and 2017 Subaru Outback
  • Does your 2017 Subaru Outback have the factory 1-1/4 inch trailer hitch? If so that is going to be a problem. That hitch was designed with a hitch pin hole very close to the receiver opening. This means that there isn't enough of a bike rack's shank that will be inside of the receiver to safely and properly support most bike racks. In order to carry a 70 pound fat e-bike you will need to have a Class III, 2 inch trailer hitch, # 75673 or # 306-X7266, in order to use the one bike rack...

  • 2-Bike Platform Hitch Rack for 2006 Jeep Wrangler with 33-Inch Spare Tire
  • The Hollywood Racks TRS SE 2-Bike Platform Rack # HR3500 provides 8-1/2-inches of clearance from the center of the hitch pin hole to the nearest part of the rack, which is the main pivot assembly. This will not provide a good fit on your Jeep based on your measurement. I recommend the Swagman Escapee 2 Bike Platform Rack # S64693 since it offers 10-inches of clearance. You can confirm the fit by measuring from the center of your hitch pin hole to rear edge of the tire, as shown in the...

  • Recommended Bike Rack for Electric Bikes on 2018 Toyota Highlander Towing Pop-Up Camping Trailer
  • There are many options for electric bike racks compatible with your 2018 Toyota Highlander so you will simply need to determine the tongue weight of your bike rack, bikes, and trailer tongue weight to determine compatibility. I recommend using the MaxxTow Ball Mount w/ 2" Accessory Receiver - 2" Hitches - 2-1/4" Drop - 5,000 lbs # MT70066 or the Curt # D210 to give you the accessory receiver for your bike rack. Then you simply need a 2 inch hitch ball like # 63845 or 2-5/16 inch ball...

  • Recommendation for a Bike Rack that Will Hold 4.8 Inch Wide Fat Bike Tires
  • We do have bike racks that will accept 4.8 inch wide fat bike tires but the Hollywood Racks TRS # HR3500 only accepts bike tires up to 4.5 inches wide. The RockyMounts MonoRail, # RKY10007-05, will accept fat bike tires up to 5 inches wide right out of the box. I have linked a video showing the rack loaded with a fat bike. This rack has the benefit of wide spacing between the bikes making it easier to fit both bikes on the rack; even if both are fat bikes!

  • Recommended 2 Bike Rack for a 2013 Kia Sorento
  • If you are looking for a top-of-the-line 2 bike rack to use with your 2013 Kia Sorento then I recommend going with the Kuat NV 2.0. This bike rack will fit a 1-1/4 inch receiver with part # NV12G or a 2 inch receiver with part # NV22G. Not only does the NV 2.0 offer a very sleek look, but it also comes with a built-in bike repair stand, has bike and hitch locks to secure your bikes and bike rack, plus it secures the bikes by their wheels instead of frame so that it can accommodate a wide...

  • Attaching the Wheel Trays of the Hollywood Racks TRS 2
  • When assembling the Hollywood Racks TRS 2, part # HR3500, its best to assemble the bike carriers one side at a time. Start by sliding the wheel loops into the carrier. The fit is somewhat tight initially, so you'll need to press the wheel straps through the channels on the bottom of the carrier. Next, slide one of the longer channel bolts through to the wheel strap. Finally, mount the two plates using a bolt, washer and nut, to the end of that tray. The larger plate will go on top....

  • How Much Clearance Does Hollywood Racks Bike Rack HR3500 Have from Pin Hole to Nearest Part of Rack
  • The Hollywood Racks bike rack part # HR3500 has a distance of 8-1/2 inches from the center of it's hitch pin hole to the nearest part of the rack. It sounds like you need at least 4 inches here in that dimension so based on that this rack would fit and work well.

  • Determining if Hollywood Racks TRS SE # HR3500 Will Fit 2012 Toyota RAV4 with Rear Spare Tire
  • Whether or not a hitch-mounted bike rack like the Hollywood Racks TRS SE # HR3500 will fit your 2012 Toyota RAV4 without interfering with the rear spare tire will just depend on exactly how far out that tire extends past the bumper. What I recommend doing is taking a measurement from the center of the hitch pin hole on your hitch receiver to the outer edge of the tire. You will use this measurement to determine a compatible rack. The closest part of the Hollywood Racks TRS to the center...
