Expert Answers about Hollywood Racks

  • Comparison Between Hollywood Racks # HR1400 and Swagman XTC-4 # S64655 Hitch Mounted Bike Racks
  • There are indeed some significant differences between the Hollywood Racks # HR1400 and the Swagman XTC-4, part # S64665. The reviews for the # HR1400 are shown on the product page for the bike rack, which you can see by using the provided link. The rack has been well received by our customers, and the reviews have been overwhelmingly positive. The HR1400 is an extremely versatile rack. It can be tilted away from the vehicle while bikes are upon it to allow easier access to the cargo...

  • 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...

  • Comparing the Hollywood Racks SE4 and Swagman 2+2 Trailer Hitch Mount Bike Racks
  • The Hollywood Racks SE4, # HR1400, and the Swagman 2+2, # S64692, are two comparable bike racks. Like you have already said, the racks can handle 2 or 4 bikes with the last 2 bike section being removable. The SE4 weighs a little less (shipping weight is 82 pounds) when compared to the 2+2 (89 pound shipping weight). For wheel cradles I give the edge to the 2+2. The actual cradles are more secure than the hoops used on the SE4. Both racks have the same 45 pounds per bike capacity so there...

  • Trailer Hitch Mount Bike Rack that Can Hold 16 Inch Tires on a Childs Bike
  • A 16 inch bike is small and the best option as far as a bike rack is going to be a platform style rack like # HR1400 that you have referenced. You will need to add Kids Bike Wheel Hoop Adapters, # HRSW-ADP-2, in order to carry the 16 inch bike in the rack. The adapters will prevent the tires on the bike from going too far into the hoops on the rack. I have linked a video review and the instructions for you for the bike rack. Out of the bike rack options I think this one is the best...

  • Recommended Carrier for Schwinn Meridian Adult Trike on Toyota Prius
  • All of the hitches for the Toyota Prius are Class I hitches with 1-1/4 inch receivers, so as long as you have a Class I trailer hitch you can use Hollywood Racks Sport Rider # HR1000R (for longer wheelbases) or # HR1000 and then add Trike Adapter, # HRTRK-ADP, to carry the trike. This set up is Class I compatible. I have linked instructions for you on the racks and adapter. You will need to stay within the 200 pound tongue weight rating of a class I hitch or the tongue weight rating...

  • Bike & Cargo Carrier Options for Use on Winnebago View 24V Class B+ RV
  • It is generally a better idea to use a hitch receiver to support a heavy load. Lightweight ladder-mount RV bike racks are available for up to 2 bikes, such as the Surco 2 Bike Carrier # SP501BR, but if you can use hitch-mount carriers that place the load on the vehicle frame you are better off. Have a look at the safety sticker on your RV hitch. There should be a tongue weight capacity listed on it. This is important to know since that TW figure is the maximum weight load you can use...

  • Hitch Mounted Bike Rack Recommendation for Electric Pedego Bikes
  • For an electric bike rack that would easily carry your 2 E-bikes that weight 53 lbs a piece that have fenders you would want the Hollywood Racks Bike Rack part # HR1450E as this rack is specifically designed to work on E-bikes like yours and has a 80 lb per bike capacity. This rack secures bikes to the rack by grabbing the frame so your fenders would not interfere at all. Only issue is that you wouldn't be able to access the rear cargo door of your vehicle with the rack installed....

  • Cargo Bag and Bike Rack Cover Recommendation for the Hollywood Racks SE2 Bike Rack w/Cargo Carrier
  • The Hollywood Racks Sport Rider SE2 Platform 2 Bike Rack w/Cargo Carrier # HR1450-85 that you referenced comes with a hitch lock to secure the rack to your vehicle, and then a cable lock to secure the bikes to the rack. For a weather resistant bag you could use for the cargo carrier portion of the carrier the # 59102 would be about right in size for the carrier. It would be about 4 inches wider than the carrier. There is no great way to lock the bag to the carrier though. For a cover...

  • Comparing the Hollywood Racks Sport Rider and Swagman XTC2 Trailer Hitch Mount Bike Racks
  • Many of the platform style bike racks are similar. In terms of overall quality and performance, the Swagman XTC2, # S64670, is my top choice when compared to the Hollywood Racks Sport Rider, # HR1000. Apart from the same basic design these two racks do have some key differences. First, the wheel hoops used on the Swagman have rubber straps which are durable and protect the bike wheels. The straps used on the Sport Rider are Hook-and-loop straps (similar to Velcro) and can fray over time. The...

  • Compatibility of Hollywood Racks # HR1450 with ElliptiGO Bike
  • I did some research, and found that ElliptiGo offers a modified version of the Hollywood Racks # HR1450R. The rack features a fork mount at the front wheel hoop that will accommodate the bike once the front wheel is removed. We do not offer the rack, but you could purchase a # HR1450R and add one # HR915 for each ElliptiGo bike you wish to carry, and you'd have the same rack (see photo). The HR1450 would probably not work, as the HR1450R model is specifically designed for wider bikes...

  • 2-Inch Hitch-Mount Trike Carrier for Use with Miami Sun 24-Inch Traditional Trike Bicycle
  • We offer two specialized 2-inch hitch-mount bike carriers designed expressly for adult trikes and both come from the folks at Hollywood Racks. The single carrier you referenced, the Sport Rider Trike Carrier # HR1000R-TRKADP, is ideal for a single trike. This carrier accepts tires up to 3-inches wide and works with trikes with wheelbases up to 74-inches and track widths up to 36-inches (this is the distance between the rear tires' centers). Please see the linked review video. They also...

  • RV-Rated Hitch Bike Rack for Use with 60-lb Electric Fat Bike That Has 4-Inch-Wide Tires
  • The Hollywood Racks Sport Rider SE2 Bike Rack for Electric Fat Tire Bicycles, part # HR1455E, will fit your electric Fat Bike that has 4-inch-wide tires, however this rack is NOT rated for use on the back of an RV. Bike racks made for use on an RV are specifically designed and rated for that application. This rack is intended for use on a passenger car, which will have a shorter rear-axle-to-hitch distance than a class B motorhome. The longer rear-axle-to-hitch distance on the RV means...

  • Recommended Trunk Bike Rack for Preventing Scratches on a 2015 Mazda 6
  • Honestly, the best way to prevent scratches or damage to your vehicle's paint is going to get a hitch mounted rack like the Thule Helium # TH9042 and a trailer hitch like the Draw-Tite # 24908. We typically recommend a fresh wash and wax before installing any trunk rack. It is important that the rack be installed securely to reduce bouncing or movement, which causes scratches. But honestly it is the nature of the location of the rack and the elements it encounters while on the road....

  • Trailer Hitch Mount Bike Rack to Carry 1 Catrike Expedition Trike
  • To carry one trike (delta or tadpole, either one) the Hollywood Racks Sport Rider trike carrier, # HR1000R-TRKADP, is the rack for you. It will only hold one trike and it will fit 1-1/4 or 2 inch trailer hitches. I have included a link to a video review to the right.

  • Recommended 3-Bike Trunk-Mount Rack for 2007 Honda Odyssey Van
  • For your 2007 Honda Odyssey the trunk-mount bike rack that I suggest is the Hollywood Racks Over-the-Top 3 Bike Rack # HRF2-3. This unique carrier features an innovative arched frame design that allows it to work well on vehicles with spoilers. Many otherwise excellent racks cannot be used on such vehicles but the HRF2-3 will avoid any interference with the rear spoiler. If any of the bikes does not have a horizontal top frame tube, such as some women's and alternative design bikes,...

  • Bike Rack for a Tadpole Trike for the Back of an RV/Motor Home or Trailer
  • The issue is that there are only certain bike racks that are rated for use on the back of an RV or trailer. I have not seen a trailer hitch mount bike rack that holds a tadpole or delta trike that is also compatible with an RV or trailer. If your RV has a 4 inch to 4-1/2 inch steel bumper that is welded the entire length of the bumper then you might be able to use the Swagman bike rack # S80600. It would be the best and really only option.

  • Anti-Rattle Device Suggestion while using a Towing Bike Rack and Pop Up Camper
  • For use while towing with your pop up camper trailer and hitch mounted towing bike rack, the best option would be to use the Anti-Rattle Device for a 2 inch hitch # 63232. This device will eliminate any additional rattling by pulling the ball mount portion of the hitch to one side. It also provides a secure locking mechanism for your hitch. Please keep in mind that this locking device can only be used on hollow hitch devices, it is also advised to remove this locking mechanism when...

  • Platform-Style Bike Rack Recommendation for a Motorhome Towing a Chevrolet Malibu
  • The Hollywood Racks Sport Rider 2 Bike Rack, # HR1000, that you referenced would be an excellent choice for your Malibu or Grand Cherokee, however, this rack is not rated for use behind a motor home. The back end of a motor home subjects hitch mounted accessories to more jarring and bounce than a passenger vehicle, truck or SUV because the rear end is further away from the rear axle. Because of this, there are only a few bike racks that are compatible with motor homes. We do offer one...

  • Bike Rack Recommendations for a 2011 Chevrolet Camaro Coupe
  • There are better options available for carrying bikes on your 2011 Camaro. Trunk mount bike racks have been around for a while and are a good, inexpensive option to carry bikes, but like you, many people are weary of using a trunk mount rack because the weight of the bike rack and the bikes is sitting on the trunk and bumper. Bike rack manufacturers test these bike racks and as long as the weight capacity of the bike rack is not exceeded and the bike rack is installed properly, you should...

  • Recommended Front Mount Hitch 2 Bike Carrier for 2011 Ford F-350
  • The Hollywood Sport Rider # HR1000 that you referenced in your question is a good option for a front mount bike rack on your 2011 Ford F-350. I have a few other options for you as well. What I recommend using is the Swagman Chinook 2 Bike Platform Rack # S64683. It comes with an anti-rattle rack lock and bike locks so that you can secure your bike rack with less rattle to your hitch, and your bikes to the bike rack to help deter theft. The Chinook also has a folding feature which will...

  • Trailer Hitch Mount Bike Rack to Carry an Adult Trike and Regular Bike at the Same Time
  • The only way to carry a trike is to use a hitch mount bike rack and to carry a trike and regular bike together there is only one rack, # HR1450R-TRKADP2. However, this rack only fits 2 inch trailer hitch receiver openings. There are only Class I hitches with 1-1/4 inch receivers available for your 2011 Toyota Corolla. If you happen to have a different vehicle if you can tell me what it is I can determine if there is a 2 inch hitch available for it.

  • Trunk Mount Bike Rack Recommendation for a 2006 Honda Pilot
  • The only trunk mount bike carriers that will fit your 2006 Honda Pilot are the Hollywood Racks Over-the-Top rack # HRF2 for 2 bikes or # HRF2-3 for 3 bikes. These racks have an additional upper arm piece that moves the top straps up and over that spoiler so no weight is put on it (since the spoiler is not meant to support weight). I have included a link to a video that shows how it works. If you will be carrying any bikes that do not have a top frame bar that goes straight across (like...

  • Trunk Mount Bike Rack Recommendation for a 2013 Jeep Grand Cherokee
  • We have numerous 2 bike trunk mount bike racks that will fit your 2013 Jeep Grand Cherokee. I have included a link to them for you to view. My personal favorite, and the most popular trunk mount bike rack, is the Thule Raceway # TH9001PRO. This rack is the easiest to install/remove of any trunk mount bike rack I have ever used. What makes it so easy are the 4 retractable cables used to secure the rack to the vehicle. Other racks use 6 straps that can be cumbersome. The Raceway also features...

  • Trunk Mount Bike Rack Recommendation for 2007 Toyota Highlander

This rack is confirmed as a fit for your vehicle and also was made specifically to fit vehicles with spoilers like yours. If you plan on carrying any womens or alternative framed bikes without horizontal top tubes you may also be interested in purchasing a Kuat Bike Frame Adapter Bar # UB01 to provide a horizontal top tube on your bikes...

  • Will Hollywood Racks SE 4 # HR1400 Fit on a 2012 Honda Odyssey with Curt Hitch # 13608
  • Yes, the Hollywood Racks SE 4 Bike Rack, # HR1400, will fit on your 2012 Honda Odyssey with the Curt Trailer Hitch, # C13068. In the folded position, the closest part of this bike rack will be 6 inches away from the face of the trailer hitch receiver. Once the Curt hitch is installed, the distance from the face of the Curt trailer hitch and the rear-most edge of your bumper will be 3 inches. You will have 3 inches of clearance between the rear-most part of your bumper and the closest...

  • Will a Bike with 29 Inch Tires Fit the Hollywood Racks Bicycle Parking Stand
  • The full diameter of a bike tire would not be inserted into the supports of the Hollywood Racks bike parking stand # HRPS8 so the stand should still accommodate a bike with 29s. But only just. The opening is 25-5/8 inches tall so only part of the tire would fit in the opening. We have one of these set up here and the largest bike tire currently in it is 27 inches in diameter. There is some space left over so I am confident that a 29er would fit. Large knobby tires would not fit as well. Swagman...

  • What Bike Sizes Can the Thule T2 and Hollywood Racks Fat Bike Rack Fit
  • The Thule T2 Fat Bike Rack part # TH9044 and # TH919 that you referenced can fit wheel sized from 20" to 29", tire widths of up to 5 inches, and wheelbases of up to 48 inches. If your bike fits that criteria this rack should work well for you. I attached a review video for this rack for you to check out as well.

  • What Prevents the Rear Portion of the Hollywood Racks Bike Racks # HR1400 From Getting Stolen
  • The pin that secures the two pieces of the rack together to make it a 4 bike rack actually is threaded so that it there is no movement between the two pieces. In order for someone to steal the back portion of the rack he would have to have the right size wrench to un-thread it. Most bike rack thieves don't run around with sets of wrenches on them so the odds are that your rack wouldn't get stolen like this. Check out the review video I attached for this rack.

  • Inexpensive 2 Bike Rack Recommendation for a 2012 Toyota Yaris 5-Door Hatchback
  • Thule and Hollywood racks both have trunk mounted bike racks that will fit your 2012 Toyota Yaris Hatchback, however, they do not recommend using a trunk mounted bike rack on models with a rear spoiler at the top of the rear hatch. To install a trunk mounted bike rack on your Yaris, the top straps must hook to the top edge of the rear hatch over the spoiler. The spoiler on the 2012 Yaris was not designed to support additional weight and could be deformed or damaged when the bikes are...
