Why Cant Hollywood Racks # HR1450Z-FB Be Used at Back of 5th Wheel Trailer  


Just curious why this unit can not be use on towed vehicles like a fifth wheel


Expert Reply:

At the rear of a 5th wheel trailer the ride quality is very rough when compared to the ride quality at the rear of a passenger vehicle. Reason being the suspension isn't as sophisticated and there is a longer distance between the rear axle and the rear of the trailer which exaggerates the movement of the trailer when hitting bumps. Because of that only a few bike racks were designed to be reinforced enough for that type of use.

Hollywood Racks does have a fat bike platform rack that does work at the back of fifth wheel trailer with the Hollywood Racks RV Rider part # HLY64FR which would be a really great option, but the # HR1450Z-FB cannot be used at the rear of a fifth wheel.

I attached a review video for this rack for you to check out as well.
