Review of the Hollywood Racks Hitch Cargo Carrier on a 2012 Toyota 4Runner


Speaker 1: Today on our 2012 Toyota Four Runner, we're going to be doing a test fit on the Hollywood Racks' Hitch-Mounted Cargo Carrier, that's part number: HR1485.I've already got it loaded up, just to give you a good idea of what it looks like attached to our Four Runner. Now right away I'd like to point out that this can also be in addition to the Hollywood Racks' Sport Rider SE2. This actually plugs into the back of that 2-bike rack, allowing you to carry two bikes and cargo. That part number of that bike rack is: HR1450Z.Let's go ahead and give you some dimensions. The inside dimensions are: 52 and a 1/2 inches long by 15 and 9/16ths of an inch wide, and it's 5 inches deep.As you can see, it's a basket-style design. The tubular side rails and floor are going to be easy to clean.

Dirt and debris's just going to fall right through. I do, however, recommend using larger items for this basket, that way you don't have to worry about smaller items falling through. Now, with that being said, the tubular design is going to allow us plenty of tie-down points surrounding the carrier.Now it does include a cargo net so we can better secure our cargo, but I would also recommend using straps.Let's give you some dimensions. Let's give you some measurements from the vehicle, I mean. We've added about 30 inches to our Four Runner.

Our closest point is about 11 and a 1/2 inches. Our ground clearance, here at the back, is about 16 and a 1/2 inches.I'll give you the break inaudible 00:01:36 point next. Pull, open up our rear hatch to about here. That's going to be about 18 and a 1/2 inches. What's this means is we can stack our cargo roughly 18 and a 1/2 inches high and still be able to open up that rear hatch.Now one thing I did forget to mention is when used as a standalone carrier, just like this, we have a weight capacity of 220 pounds.

When it's used as an add-on to that 2-bike rack, it decreases to about 90 pounds.It's going to work with two-inch by two-inch receivers only. If you're using it by itself, you'll need to pick up a PC3, which is a standard 5/8ths hitch pin and clip. You can pick that up right here at etrailer.com. When you're using it as add-on with the bike rack, the included sleeve actually comes off and you used the attached pin here.Now the exhaust on our Four Runner is after-market. It's about 14 inches away from our carrier.

You want to be careful of any heat sensitive materials or gear you put on this side of the carrier as they could get damaged.But with that being said, that's going to complete our test fit of the Hollywood Racks' Hitch-Mounted Cargo Carrier, part number: HR1485, on our 2012 Toyota Four Runner.This is our test course, let's start with the slalom. This shows side-to-side action such as turning corners or evasive maneuvering.The solid speed bumps, this shows up-and-down action such as driving through a parking lot or parking garage or driving in and out of a driveway.Then on to our alternating speed bumps, this shows twisting action such as hitting curbs, potholes, road debris or uneven pavement.
