Helpful Expert Reply:

The Hollywood Racks Sport Rider SE 2 Electric Bike Rack part # HLY84FR is not rated for use on trailers because the ride at the back of a trailer is much rougher than that on a vehicle. The reason for this has to do with the design of the suspension and the distance from the rear axle. The Hollywood Racks Sport Rider SE 2 Electric Bike Rack is not rated for this additional stress therefore cannot be used on a trailer.

However, I do have a couple very similar options for you in the Hollywood Racks RV Rider part # HLY64FR, or the Swagman E-Spec 2-Electric Bike Platform Rack part # S94FR which are both designed for trailers and have an 80 lb and 70 lb per bike weight capacity respectively.
