Comparing the Hollywood Racks Trail Rider and Hollywood Racks Sport Rider


I just installed the 2inch Curt hitch receiver Item # C13133 onto my 2017 VW Tiguan. I am interested in a 2-bike platform rack and am concerned about the clearance between the inside bike and the back of the Tiguan. Do you recommend one rack over the other, e.g., the Hollywood Trail Rider, the Hollywood Sport Rider, or the Swagman XTC-2?


Expert Reply:

If you are concerned with clearance between the bike rack and vehicle, the Hollywood Racks Trail Rider part # HR200Z or the Hollywood Racks Sport Rider part # HR1000Z would be the two you want to look at. They both provide at least 11" from the center of the hitch pin hole to the closest edge of wheel hoop. The main difference between the two is that Sport Rider can be folded toward the vehicle while not in use whereas the Trail Rider cannot. Aside from this aspect, they are essentially the same rack.

If you would like to add locks to either of the above bike racks then you can do so using the Anti-Rattle Hitch Lock and Cable Lock part # HRLHPTC which locks both the bike rack and bikes. I have attached a review video one each of the above racks for you as well.
