  • Will the Backup Sensors on my 2019 Tesla Model 3 Activate Carrying Rola Convoy Bike Rack
  • You can install the Stealth Hitch # 391TES317 and use it with your Rola Convoy # 59307-2, but in all likelihood it's going to set off the backup alarm on your 2019 Tesla Model 3. The good news is that you can simply mute the alarm on your vehicle (there should be a setting for this that can be found in the owner's manual) when you've got the rack attached. It should also be noted that this is extremely common when it comes to vehicles with backup sensors and carrying bike racks, so it's...

  • Recommended Bike Cover for Hollywood Racks TRS
  • We don't typically recommend bike rack covers for the back of a passenger vehicle like your 2019 Tesla Model 3, since it's going to create added drag and potentially additional stress on the rack; we typically only recommend using them on RVs since the rack is going to be mostly shielded from most of the wind. If you want to use a bike rack cover on the Hollywood Racks TRS E-Bike Rack # HR3500E I recommend using the Swagman Bike Cover for RVs - Large - 2 Bikes # S24FR since it's designed...

  • Is the Saris MTR for use with Class 3 Hitches
  • Yes the Saris MTR 2 Bike Platform Rack part # SA4032 does have the weight capacities you need to carry your two E-Bikes. If you don't mind me letting you in on a little information. I did the video on this rack and also on the Inno Tire Hold 2 Bike Platform Rack part # INH120 and I would pick the Inno every single time. It is easier to use, hold the bikes better and looks ad feels nicer. Both racks will work with your current class 3 hitch and have the same 120 lb. capacity and with...

  • Can Kuat Sherpa 2.0 Bike Rack Tilt and Fold With Stealth Hitch on 2018 Tesla Model 3
  • I checked with Kuat about the clearances for the Sherpa 2.0, and can confirm that you will not have any problems with clearances for either the tilting or folding feature on your 2018 Tesla Model 3 when using the rack with the Stealth Hitches Hidden Rack Receiver # 391TES317. I added some diagrams for you with measurements of the Sherpa 2.0, and as you can see, when it tilts down, with the Stealth hitch being about 10 inches above the ground on the Tesla, you will have a few inches to...

  • Saris SuperClamp EX2 vs Kuat Sherpa 2 on a Tesla Model S
  • You're correct, the Saris Superclamp, part # SA4025F will do better in comparison to the Kuat Sherpa, part # SH22G when going in and out of a driveway. This will have more to do with the angle of the rise than the actual height of it, as there is a fairly straight line from the straight part of the Superclamp's shank to the end of the wheel cradle, meaning you'll ride along that line when you're at an angle. I would still recommend using your Tesla Model S' suspension to get a little...

  • What is the Lightest 4-Bike Platform Style Bike Rack for a 2014 Tesla Model S with EcoHitch
  • For your 2014 Tesla Model S with EcoHitch # 306-X7201 the lightest 4-Bike rack (that is sort of a hybrid between a platform rack and a hanging rack) is the BikeWing # B01458. It weighs just 41 pounds. It holds the bikes at the wheels only and will accept bikes with wheelbases from 22 inches to 50 inches. I have linked a video review of this rack for you. For a more traditional rack the Saris Freedom SuperClamp # SA4026F you mentioned would be the lightest at 63 pounds. I have linked...

  • Will Thule Roadway 2 Bike Rack Fit On My Tesla Model Y?
  • You have the right hitch on your 2020 Tesla Model 3 to fit both the Thule Roadway 2 # TH912XTR and the Thule Helium Pro 2 # TH9042PRO. What you need to do to make sure these racks will not make contact with your rear hatch is measure from the hitch pin hole to the very end of your Model 3. If the measurement is less than 7-1/2 inches then you will not have a problem installing the rack with clearance issues. Both racks have the tilting feature so you will be able to access your rear...

  • Does The Kuat NV 2.0 4-Bike Platform Rack Come With The Same Keys For The Cable Lock And Hitch Lock?
  • When buying the Kuat NV 2.0 4-Bike Platform Rack # NV22B-NA22B you will have a cable lock for each bike and a hitch lock for the rack. You will get one set of keys (2 keys) that will be identical. These keys will work for not only the hitch lock, but also for the four bike cables. No need to buy other locking cores to make them match. It comes with all the locking cores already installed and two of the same keys to unlock them both. I like to keep one on my keychain and the other hidden...

  • Hollywood Rack E-Bike Rack Recommendation for Carrying Two RadRover E-Bikes
  • We have just what you need. Hollywood Racks makes a rack specifically for the heavier E-bikes like your RadRovers with the part # HLY84FR which has an 80 lb per bike capacity and has wider wheel hoops to allow fat bikes up to 5" wide to fit too right out of the box.

  • Weight of the Swagman Trailhead 4 Bike Rack Part # S63380
  • The Swagman Trailhead 4 Bike Rack part # S63380 has a shipping weight of 35 lbs which means the actual weight is around 30 lbs. In order to use this bike rack on your 2017 Tesla Model X you will need a trailer hitch and for that I recommend the Draw-Tite Max-Frame Trailer Hitch Receiver part # 76143 if you do not already have one.

  • Recommended Bike Rack for Three Specialized Como 3.0 Electric Bikes on 2 Inch Hitch Receiver
  • The Yakima FourTimer 4 Bike Platform Rack - 2" Hitches - Tilting - Frame Mount # Y02469 will work with your 3 electric bikes that are 40 lbs each. This bike carrier is 45 lbs per bike so it will work well and is my recommendation for you. This rack both tilts for cargo access and folds for storage.

  • Can Only Included Cargo Carrier be Used with Hollywood Racks Sport Rider Bike Rack Cargo Carrier
  • The only cargo carrier that can be used safely with the Hollywood Racks Sport Rider SE 4 Bike Rack w/ Cargo Carrier - 2 Fat Bikes # HR1400Z-85-FB that you referenced is the one that is included with this kit. Other carriers might fit the rack setup but the extra weight and leverage of a longer/heavier carrier would potentially damage the bike rack as well as your hitch since that's quite a bit more stress on everything.

  • Will the Stealth Hitch Work With 4-Bike Rack On 2020 Tesla Model 3 And Block Backup Camera
  • The Stealth Hitch part # 391TES317 is an excellent option for a 2020 Tesla Model 3. It will be plenty capable for carrying three to four bikes with pretty much any rack. The Hollywood Racks Traveler 4 Bike Carrier part # HR8500 will work well with this setup. That said, pretty much all hitch mounted bike racks will interfere in some way with the backup camera. That said, this is pretty much an issue for all vehicles with backup cameras.
