Traveler 3 Hitch Bike Rack

The Traveler bike rack lets you transport up to 3 bikes on the back of your vehicle without having to skimp on style or pay big bucks.


This versatile bike carrier slides into your vehicle's 1-1/4" or 2" trailer hitch. Leave on the included adapter sleeve to fit the shank into a 2" receiver, or remove the sleeve to slide the shank into a Class II, 1-1/4" receiver. An anti-wobble hitch pin reduces the movement of the rack in the hitch receiver. And you can tighten the thumbscrew on the back of the upright mast to help keep the mast from wobbling.


Dual Arms

Traveler Arms

Constructed of rugged steel with a sleek black powder coat finish, the Traveler features dual arms that support your bikes and better accommodate women's, children's and alternative frames. (An adapter bar [HRBA-PRO - sold separately] may still be required.) The arms easily fold down when the rack is not in use - just remove the tethered bail pin.


Anti-Sway Cradles

Traveler Cradles

Rubber anti-sway cradles with straps firmly grip your bike's frame at three points to keep it from swaying front to back. This helps to keep your bikes from hitting each other and your vehicle during transit. The cradles rotate and slide along the arms, so you can easily adjust them based on the type and number of bikes you're transporting. And you can use the integrated safety strap to help keep your bikes tied down.


Tilting Mast

Traveler Tilted

The Traveler's upright mast tilts forward to allow access to your vehicle's cargo area. Once your bikes are unloaded, just remove the linchpin from the base and tilt the rack away from the vehicle.


An anti-rattle hitch lock and cable lock set (HRLHPTC - sold separately) is recommended to deter theft of the rack and your bikes.

This is a very good, sturdy bike rack. It's easy on/off as it's hitch mounted. I've taken two bikes (it's a 3 bike rack) on a trip with this rack, it's very secure on my small SUV. It also folds down with bikes on the rack so you can access the hatch area of the vehicle. 875431

I love etrailer the site is great and working with their top-notch customer service made things a breeze. However, I'm not a fan of this product. This was not my first choice. It was actually my third choice because the first two choices were not available or on back-order likely due to the pandemic. I have used this Hollywood rack twice. Sure, it works. But it rattles a whole lot. I added an anti-rattle clamp as well as a stabilizing strap which has helped but added pain when installing. It squeaks a whole lot at the joints (or example at the midpoint between the lower pole and upper pole). I will add tome WD 40 to hopefully eliminate this. Installed using a drawtite hitch on a 2012 Honda Crosstour. 871624

We anticipated taking our grandson bike riding at various locations last summer but, we actually only did it once. After that he didn't want to go riding other than the streets in our development. I was glad we had the carrier and who knows we may use it in the future. It is a quality product that we were well satisfied with. I would recommend it to anyone shopping for a bike carrier. 258697

Review from a similar Traveler in Hitch Bike Racks


Built to last. This one is replacing a 3-bike Hollywood rack that is 12 years old. It still works fine but I needed space for more bikes! I had one question during assembly - I called the toll-free number on the instructions and immediately talked to a very helpful person who answered my question. I highly recommend Hollywood racks and highly recommend etrailer.com. 82748


Comments
The rack is still working out great. Its a beast. My trailer and carrier needs are minimal, but I can honestly say that there is no need to shop around - because I did prior to this purchase - etrailer.com is a no-brainer.

Review from a similar Traveler in Hitch Bike Racks


Bought this product after researching many 4 bike capacity racks on line. I wanted something sturdy but not ultra expensive. I considered buying the Thule trailway ( I think it’s csljed) at dicks because it got pretty good reviews and has a latch to tilt instead of a pin. But ultimately decided on this model. So glad I did. very sturdy. Easy to assemble and operate. Holds 4 bikes or varying sizes/styles easily. The only change I would make would be to somehow attach pin that you pull out to tilt the rack out to the rack somehow. I’m always afraid I’m going to lose it. This rack will stay on my car for the majority of the year (with the exception of winter) so ease of use was important to me 555182

Very nice bike rack for the price. Rack was very easy to put together and install. have only used it once but it seems to be very well made. the ordering was easy to use and rack arrived in 3 days. 176563


Comments
I have used the bike rack many times in the past year and it is very well made. The anti-rattle pin works very well and the strap keeps the wheels from turning in the wind. Would recommend this rack to anyone looking for a well made rack at a good price.

Ordering and shipping were quite easy and very quick. Product looks very sturdy and easily assembled; however, have not hauled the bikes with it as of yet (just got it two days ago, the only reason I did not rate excellent). 94078


Comments
I saw a Rav4 that had a bike rackHollywood that fit over the spare tire. The rack looked to be bolted to the back of the door. I have an SUV without a door mounted spare, but I would like to find a bike rack that mounts to the back of the car. I dont want to use a car hitch.
-- comment by: Tom S - 01/20/2014

There are 3 basic types of bike racks used on the rear. Hitch mounted, spare tire mounted and trunk mounts. The first two are out since you do not want to use a hitch and do not have a spare. There are several trunk bike racks that will fit on SUVs. You can write back and with the year, make and model of your SUV I can show you what will fit. Or you can use our Fit Guide, input the information, and the website will display the results for your vehicle.

Review from a similar Traveler in Hitch Bike Racks


Solid design and materials. A bit of a challenge on more atypical frame shapes, including wider top tubes (e.g. Electra Cruiser, top tube is too wide for the cradle) or those with intersecting frame components that make for narrower frame openings (i.e. difficulty in getting over the cradles). Also note that the cradles do not move and the 5th pair of cradles are positioned close (same as other brands?) to the vehicle, between the vertical tube and the vehicle. 198013


Comments
After a year, it has held up well. Construction-wise, it a winner.As noted previously, a design that accommodates various frames better would have been nice.

Review from a similar Traveler in Hitch Bike Racks


The carrier was eady to assemble and attach to my hitch. We have 4 bikes, 2 children, 1 women's and 1 man's. It wasn't until the carrier arrived that I saw the video about needing a bar accessory to put children's and women's bikes on. We did not have time or money to purchase more parts so we managed to fit the bikes on. The rack works great but may have made a different choice if we had the information prior to purchasing. 829594

We've only used it once but it is great! It fits all 5 of our bikes without issue and we're happy. We have an adult men's bike, adult women's bike, and three 24" kid/teen bikes. The women and kid bikes have to go through the bars slightly differently, but not a problem at all. We love it! 828448

Review from a similar Traveler in Hitch Bike Racks


I've had the bike rack for a year now and still think it is great. I use it about once a week during nice weather and have not had any trouble with it at all. All the straps (rubber) are in good shape after continued use - holding the bikes nice and tight. Typically I take just one or maybe two bikes, so I've placed them in different positions to use all the straps/receivers equally. Every position works well for our adult bikes. 636552

Just used our bike rack for a camping trip after storing it in the garage for the winter. We had not tried to fit 5 bikes on it before, but my son wanted to bring both his BMX trick bike and his mountain bike. All 5 bikes (2 adult, 3 kids) fit without any trouble, nice and secure. Highly recommended. 399904

Review from a similar Traveler in Hitch Bike Racks


The HR6000 works very well, bikes load easily, have rubber tie downs that hold the bikes securely and is very stable on the road. This rack holds 3 bikes, normally I use it for 2 bikes but on occasion i have had 3 bikes, and it is stable and secure. The 3/8 bolt that connects the rack to the hitch has a tapered end that easily finds the threaded end in the hitch and threads through. The rack has a bottom pin that allows the vertical tube to lean back so the trunk or rear door can be opened with the rack on, (a very nice feature ) to help make that connection tight, there is a thumbnail bolt at the bottom to take up the play. That is a problem because that bolt wants to loosen and lets the rack sway, something to be aware of. Overall a nice way to carry bikes at a good price. 275418

  • Trailer Hitch Recommendation and Hollywood Racks Traveler Fitment on a 2019 Lexus RX 350
    The Hollywood Racks Traveler 3 # HR6500 will definitely fit on your 2019 Lexus RX 350 and for a trailer hitch I recommend the Curt # C13272 over the Draw-Tite # 75540 simply because we have found that the Curt hitches tend to have a thicker powder coat and better welds which helps them to resist wear and tear a bit better. Attached are review videos for both the bike rack and the hitch for you to check out. A few additional things I do recommend picking up are the lock kit # HRLHPTC...

  • How Much Does the Hollywood Racks Traveler 3 Bike Carrier Weigh
    The Hollywood Racks Traveler 3 Bike Carrier # HR6500 that you referenced weighs just under 30 lbs and can handle up to 3 bikes weighing in at 35 lbs each. This bike rack is a great entry-level bike rack that is compatible with both 1-1/4" and 2" trailer hitch receivers. It does lack locks though so if you'd like to add some security to your bike rack and bikes then the lock set # HRLHPTC is available to lock your bikes to the rack and the rack to your hitch receiver.

  • How to Stop a Trailer Hitch Mount Bike Rack from Moving Too Much in the Trailer Hitch
    Using an anti-rattle hitch and cable lock will add an element of security for the bike and racks but is not going to offer any additional support to reduce movement of the rack. I do have a couple of options for you though. First, you can find some additional support from the use of a stabilization strap such as # 18050. I have linked a video that shows how this strap works. Another option would be an additional anti-rattle device such as # RM-061 for a 2 inch hitch or # 93347 for...

  • Weight of Hollywood Racks Traveler 3-Bike Hitch Mount Rack
    The 3-bike Hollywood Racks Traveler, part # HR6500, ships at 32 pounds including the packing materials. Once you remove the materials it'll shed a little bit but not much so it's about 28 pounds. If you're looking for a lightweight 3-bike rack take a look at the Malone RunWay 3 Bike Rack, part # MPG2130. It's only 21 pounds.

    The Malone Hanger 3 Bike Rack part # MPG2127 has a rather unique design which makes determining compatibility difficult, but not impossible. The biggest issue we see is the head which tilts back towards the vehicle, makes contact with the hatch. In order to see if that is the case for your 2019 Mercedes-Benz GLC 300 we will need to first measure up from the top inside edge of the receiver tube 29". Then once we are 29" above the inside edge of the receiver tube and centered over the hitch...

  • Can Thule Trunk-Mount Bike Rack be Used on 2006 Honda CR-V
    Thank you for all of the info and the picture! Normally when the hatch on a vehicle doesn't allow the hooks to properly secure you would just use an anchor type system like the Hollywood Racks part # HR44FR. These would sit inside the rear hatch area and would essentially pull against the door to hold the rack in place. I checked with all of our manufacturers and none of them list a fit for a 2006 Honda CR-V. So even if you were able to use anchors I'm not sure if a Thule bike rack,...

I spoke with my contact at Hollywood Racks and they suggested if you need to adjust them you can use a little bit of warm soapy water to slide the cradle on the arm.
