Hollywood Racks Bike Rack for Two E-Bikes With Fat Tires for Rear of 5th Wheel Trailer

Question:

On HLY84FR in specification you note that it is not to be used on any fifth wheel. Can you give me the reasoning. I see people are towing all of the above with bicycles all the time. What if the bumper has been reinforced to hold up to 400 lbs?

We actually have the exact bike rack you need, although the reason some bike racks, such as the # HLY84FR are not rated for use behind trailers, including fifth wheels or towed vehicles, is because the suspension on those is not as forgiving; there is additional movement, increasing stress on the bike rack and potentially damaging it.

That said, there is a perfect bike rack for a pair of e-bikes with fat tires that IS rated for use behind a 5th wheel trailer, the Hollywood Racks RV Rider Bike Rack for 2 Fat Tire E-Bikes # HLY64FR. This rack is constructed out of steel for optimal durability and strength; this is opposed to the aluminum that many bike racks are made from.

The RV Rider has an 80 lb per bike capacity, can work with tires up to 5 inches and fits a 2 inch trailer hitch. It even has a lock to secure the rack to your hitch, and the frame clamps also lock, securing your expensive e-bikes to the rack, helping protect your investments.

Looking for a heavy duty bike rack for a pair of fat-tire bikes, to hang on the back of my travel trailer. Kyle S recommended the HR1655, but the manufacturer Hollywood Bike specifically denies it is suitable? 73325

You're right - the RV Rider # HR1655 can be used on an RV or 5th wheel trailer, but it's not rated for use on a standard bumper pull trailer. The best trailer-approved option we have available for your application is the Swagman E-Spec # S64689 , which can handle two bikes at 70 pounds each. Out of the box it will work with up to 3" tires, but you can add the Fat Tire Adapter Kit # S64679 to let it handle up to 5" tires. 59879
