Review of the Hollywood Racks Traveler Hitch Bike Rack on a 2013 Ford Escape

Today on our 2013 Ford Escape well be test fitting the Hollywood Racks Traveler four bike carrier, part number HR8500. To begin our test fit well slide the shank of the carrier into the opening of the hitch, line up our pin holes, thread our anti-rattle bolts through the pin holes and tighten with a wrench. Now well go ahead and go over a few clearance measurements to see how the bike carrier and this vehicle will fit together. There is about 12 inches of ground clearance. From the closest part of the vehicle to the closest part of the carrier here at the rear bumper is about five inches. With the cradle arms folded down weve added about 10 inches to the overall length of the vehicle.

Now well go ahead and pull the pin at the top of the mast to swing the cradle arms out, and now well measure from the cargo door to the end of the cradle arms, and well get a measurement of 38 inches. To access the cargo area well pull the pin at the bottom of the mast and tilt the mast down. This will allow us to have access to our cargo door. To load the bike, well make sure that the mast is in its upright position. Well undo the cradle straps, set the bike into the frame cradles and secure it with the straps.

That completes todays test fit for the Hollywood Racks Traveler four bike carrier, part number HR8500 on our 2013 Ford Escape.
