Comparing the Hollywood Racks Destination to the Sports Rack on a 2016 Honda CRV


why do all the reviews state Review from a similar Destination in hitch rack? why no reviews of the HLY94FR? I own a 2016 Honda CRV touring ,will this hitch let me open the hatch with bikes on it?


Helpful Expert Reply:

The Hollywood Racks Destination, part # HLY94FR, does not have the tilt-away function that other bike racks have, which is crucial when wanting to open your rear hatch while bikes are attached. For this rack, your bikes will have to be removed to access your hatch.

I have found a similar platform rack that does have the tilt-away function. It's the Hollywood Racks Sport Rack, part # HR1000Z. Like the Destination, it can fit 1-1/4" and 2" hitches, it can carry 2 bikes, and it secures those bikes by the frame. It also has the fold-up and anti-rattle pin features that the Destination has. It's shank rise is 5" (less than the Destination but still much more than most platform racks). I've linked to a video review of this model for you to look at.

As for why the reviews are from a similar Destination, we haven't received any customer reviews from customers for the HLY94FR yet, so we've populated the reviews for similar racks (other Hollywood Racks Destination models). It's to help you get a feel for what other customers think about this line of racks even if there aren't any reviews for this particular model.
