There will probably be issues with the Curt rack, product # C18087, since the wheel hoops are too large to secure a set of 14 inch tires.

Fortunately, we have a bike rack that will suit your needs. It's the Saris Freedom 4 Bike Platform Rack, part # SA4414B. This can carry four bikes, with the inner two positions able to support up to 60 pounds each. So, there won't be any issues with the Jetsons' additional weight.

This rack has both the Tilt-Away and Fold-Up features that the Curt has. Additionally, the wheel and frame support is done with straps, so you'll be able to safely secure both the Jetsons and the normal bikes without any worries. I've included a video of this rack on a 2014 Honda CR-V.

Keep in mind that both of these racks are Class III, so make sure your hitch is rated Class III as well. If you don't know, just check the size of the receiver. As long as you have a 2-inch receiver, you're good.
