Expert Answers about Hollywood Racks

  • 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...

  • 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...

  • 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...

  • 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....

  • 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...

  • 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...

  • 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.

  • E-Bike Rack Recommendation for a Elux Fat Bike Cruiser that weighs 75 lbs
  • For an e-bike with fat tires we have a great option. The Hollywood Racks part # HR1450E has an 80 lb per bike capacity and when you use the fat tire adapter part # HRSPRWH-F it allows bikes with up to 5 inch wide tires to fit too. I attached a review video for this rack for you to check out as well. Since 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...

  • Bike Carrier Suitable for Use with Heavy Electric Bike
  • Without knowing anything about your vehicle or the frame design of your bike it is hard to give you the best possible recommendation for a bike rack suitable for your 50-lb electric bike, but I can provide you with a link to our page for hitch-mount carriers that are compatible with electric bikes. We offer two hitch-mount racks that work well with electric bikes and both can be seen on the link provided. There are no trunk-mount racks designed for electric bikes due to their weight,...

  • Will the Hollywood Rack SE4 or Swagman Quad Bike Racks Fit on an 05 Jeep Wrangler With Spare Tire
  • I recommend the Swagman Quad Bike Rack, # S64691. This rack measures 9 inches from the center of the hitch pin hole to the rack body when it is folded up. this will give you 1 inch clearance between your spare tire and the rack. The Hollywood Racks Sport Rider 4 Bike Rack, # HR1400, may fit on your 2005 Jeep Wrangler, but you will need to take one more measurement to be sure. Once installed and folded upright, the Sport Rider 4 will measure 6 inches from the face of the trailer hitch...

  • Recommended Bike Carrier For Back Of RV
  • The Hollywood Racks Sport Rider SE2, part # HR1455E is not rated for any trailer, fifth wheel, or towed vehicle. This information is from the manufacturer, not from us here at etrailer. The added stress at the back of a trailer is why most bike carriers are not allowed. This is regardless of the weight capacity of the carrier or trailer. While it is true the weight capacity of the # HR1455E is 80-lbs per bike I strongly recommend against using it on the back of your RV. The bike...

  • 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...

  • Bike Rack Recommendation for Electric Bikes with Fenders
  • For what you need the Hollywood Racks Sport Rider SE2 2-Bike Carrier for Electric Bicycles # HR1450E will be the correct solution. This rack is designed for electric bikes like what you have and would work well with your bikes that have fenders since the arms of this rack attach to the frame of the bikes and not the wheels. There isn't an add-on available for this rack though because where it would install there is bracing on this rack for the additional weight of the E-bikes. To...

  • 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...

  • 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...

  • 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...

  • 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,...

I attached a review video for this rack for you to check out also. If you plan on carrying any womens or alternative framed bikes without horizontal top tubes you may also be interested in purchasing a Hollywood Racks Bike Frame Adapter Bar # HRBA-PRO to provide a horizontal top tube on your bikes to provide an attachment point. This will...

  • 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...

  • Recommended Best 2-Bike Rack for 2007 Toyota Solara Convertible
  • Good news! I can help keep your convertible pristine and looking brand new. To prevent any damage to your vehicles body I recommend getting a hitch mounted bike rack. First thing you will need is a hitch. The custom fit Draw-Tite hitch # 36378 is a no drill application that will only temporarily lower your exhaust while your installing the hitch. I have linked a video of this hitch being installed for your convenience. For the bike rack I have to say my absolute favorite is the...

  • 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....

  • 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.

  • Can Cargo Carrier Be Added to Hollywood Racks HR1400-85 When Configured as a 4-Bike Rack
  • The Hollywood Racks # HR1400-85 would include the 2-bike rack/cargo carrier plus the +2 bike add on. You can use the rack as a 4 bike rack or as a combination 2 bike rack/cargo carrier. You cannot add the basket and carry 4 bikes, because the basket won't fit on the end of the 2 bike add-on. If it were somehow possible to add the basket onto rack when it's configured for 4 bikes, there'd be way too much leverage applied to the hitch which could damage the hitch or its attachment points...

  • Trunk Mount Bike Rack Fit for 2013 Toyota Highlander
  • I have a great trunk-mount bike rack option for your 2013 Toyota Highlander with rear spoiler, the Hollywood Racks Over-the-Top 3 Bike Rack # HRF2-3. This bike rack is specially designed for vehicles with rear spoilers. The upper bar of the bike rack extends above the rear spoiler to allow the straps to hook at the top of the rear hatch, but not to put any weight of the spoiler. The # HRF2-3 has the capcity to hold 3 bikes and has a weight capacity of 35 pounds per bike. If you only...

  • Bike Rack Recommendation for a 2014 Audi Q5
  • The Hollywood Racks Over-the-Top Bike Rack part # HRF2 that you referenced is a fit for your 2014 Audi Q5 and would work well for you. I attached a review video. However, a hitch mounted bike rack is preferred for a few reasons. The rack doesn't contact the vehicle, has more capacity usually, and allows for more flexibility for future towing accessories like cargo carriers or towing a trailer. If you are even considering a hitch I would recommend you do go this route. The hitch will...

  • 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...

  • Bike Carrier for Schwinn Meridian 26-Inch Trike and Mountain Bike on Honda Ridgeline
  • According to my research Honda announced on July 12, 2013 that they were going to end production of the Ridgeline after the 2014 model year. A redesigned model is anticipated for 2016. Perhaps you have a 2014 model year? The 72-lb shipping weight of your Schwinn trike means that the bike itself probably weighs about 65-lbs, which is more than most trunk-mount bike carriers can handle. This makes a hitch and hitch-mount bike carrier the best option for your vehicle. If you don't have...

  • Can 4-Bike Platform Style Bike Carrier be Used on a 2009 Subaru Legacy with Class III Trailer Hitch
  • Yes, you can install and use a 4-bike platform style carrier with the Class III trailer hitch on your 2009 Subaru Legacy. The combined weight of the carrier and the bikes needs to be under the tongue weight capacity of the trailer hitch. The 2 Class III trailer hitches we have for your Legacy have tongue weight capacities of 400 pounds. This is more than enough. The Hollywood Racks Sport Rider SE, # HR1400, is a solid option. As a 4-bike rack it weighs 74 pounds and has a 180 pound (45...
