hollywood racks e bike loaded

The TRS platform-style hitch bike rack makes it simple to carry 2 standard or fat tire electric 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 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.

Review from a similar TRS in Hitch Bike Racks


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

Review from a similar TRS in Hitch Bike Racks


I've had this hitch for a day and used it just once on my Miata (class 2). Going on a trip tomorrow and will use it on a Nissan Frontier pickup (class 3). It seems like a quality hitch for a very good price. I feel like buying one of those other brands (named after cities) you are paying a premium for the brand name. Hollywood provides a great value without gouging my wallet. I like the aluminum rails and the entire system is easy to use. Just holding off one star since I've only had it for a day. As a bonus it arrived a day earlier than it was scheduled! 426883

Review from a similar TRS in Hitch Bike Racks


The Hollywood HR3000 is a very solid and well thought out platform bike rack. There were no missing parts and the instructions were not difficult to follow. We have a Subaru Forester and the rack installed, mounted and folded easily and worked as advertised. I'v used it once to carry a cyclocross bike and a mountain bike and both loaded and unloaded with no problems. The construction is "beefy" and should last a long time. It is a vast improvement over my previous rack and the extra cost is well worth it. 490869

Review from a similar TRS in Hitch Bike Racks


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

Review from a similar TRS in Hitch Bike Racks


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.

Review from a similar TRS in Hitch Bike Racks


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 like the rack and it has functioned fine. I was surprised to learn after receiving it that it is not rated for use on a 5th wheel trailer. Easily assembled. Added an LED light bar to it that has running lights, turn signals and brake lights. 869408

Review from a similar TRS in Hitch Bike Racks


We have 2 hybrid 21 speed bikes. The rack is very good with our long distance travel. Also nice carrying our bikes across town. There is a lever on the rack to snug the hitch up so to take any slack up so the rack doesn't bounce when traveling or going over speedbumps. A nice feature is It folds up against the tailgate of our truck when we are riding our bikes. It also comes with a long bike cable lock to use whenever we leave the bikes in the rack to go indoors to eat or shop. It is a little heavy for us older folks when attaching it to the bike hitch. 855356

Review from a similar TRS in Hitch Bike Racks


Having had good experiences with etrailer.com in the past, buying from them again was a no brainer. When there was a problem with my past order, they stuck with me to a satisfactory resolution to the problem. After an auto accident where I was rear end and the bike rack destroyed, I salvaged what parts I could and saved them. I bought the same bike rack again. These racks ar easy to use, well made, and they hold the bikes securely. Once again I was in a wreck, and again, it destroyed the rack. I was able to combine the salvaged parts from both racks to make one good one. This ability and the excellent functionality of these racks make me a loyal fan and would buy it again if I ever need one. I highly recommend the HR3000 and a trainer.com hitch if you need it. They fit well and are sturdy. 786087

  • Hollywood Rack E-Bike Rack Recommendation for E-Bike with Fenders Electra Ace of Spades
    Hollywood Racks offers a similar E-bike rack that will work great with your Electra Ace of Spades but the # HR3500E can't be used on bikes with fenders since they would interfere with the arm of the rack. So instead you'd want the Hollywood Racks RV Rider E-Bike Rack part # HR1600 which uses a unique and clever frame clamp design that is compatible with your bike frame and will work really well.

  • Will Carbon Bike and E-Bike Work on Hollywood Racks TRS 2 Bike Platform Rack for E-Bikes
    Yes, both your carbon road bike with 700 x 28 tires and e-bike with 700 x 32 tires will work and fit great on the Hollywood Racks TRS 2 Bike Platform Rack for E-Bikes # HR3500E. Both of those sizes fall within the maximum range of 20" to 29" wheels and 4.5" wide tires. This is a wheel-mounted rack so it won't make any contact with your carbon frame bike and it has a capacity of up to 65 lbs per bike so it is sturdy enough for your e-bike as well.

I have added a link to the installation instructions for you to check out as well of the Curt Trailer Hitch Receiver # CU89FR.

Since your Rover has fenders you cant use a wheel mount rack like the # HR3500E that you referenced.

  • Best RV E-Bike Rack to Clear Rear Spare of Motorhome
    Your best RV e-bike rack is the RV Rider part # HR1600 which is RV approved for e-bikes and has the most clearance between the hitch pin hole and the wheel trays. This has 12 inches from the pin hole to the pivoting portion of the rack but then has even more clearance out to the center of the wheel trays where the bikes would be located which would be what would potentially interfere with the spare so based on that this would work well.
