Carrying a Cargo Carrier, Bike Rack and Trailer Towing at the Same Time With a 2008 Honda Pilot


Hello, Im looking for a hitch mount bike rack that also has a hitch receiver so Im able to connect a hitch mount cargo carrier or to be able to tow something as well. Ive found Item# HR1450-85-FB that looks great but I was wondering if theres any other options? Would Item # HR1450E allow me to do that or Item # S64683?


Expert Reply:

The Hollywood Racks 4-bike SportRider SE2 with Cargo Carrier, part # HR1450Z-85 is not intended to tow, but is the best option for a cargo and bike combination carrier. This is available for standard bikes as part # HR1450Z-85.

The Swagman Chinook, part # S64683 won't be able to equip a cargo carrier or trailer in its pipe, as its not intended for this purpose.

To be able to tow with the Sport Rider equipped, you'll need to use a Dual-Hitch adapter like the Curt Dual 2 Inch Receiver Tube, part # D-192. This will allow you to use the top receiver to carry your bike rack and cargo carrier, and the lower receiver to tow a trailer. Your hitch's tongue weight capacity will be reduced by 50% while using this adapter, so be sure to verify your modified capacity and intended weights prior to equipping this setup.
