Trailer Hitch and Bike Rack for 2 Fat Tire Electric Bikes on a 2017 Lexus RX 350 F Sport


we have a 2017 RX350 fsport it has the toe package option, no hitch, just a bigger battery, and an oil cooler. we just purchased 2 ebikes, fat tire, and they weigh 79# each w/batteries. I was wondering if the Draw-Tite 75540 would work best for the hitch and was wondering about the LGA77FR rack, the Hollywood hr-1700 or the Hollywood RV rider


Expert Reply:

Yes, the Draw-Tite Max-Frame Trailer Hitch Receiver # 75540 will fit your 2017 Lexus RX 350 F Sport and will work to carry a bike rack with your 2 e-bikes. This rack has a 2" receiver opening, which is the most common size used for hitch mounted accessories like a bike rack.

Since your bikes weigh 79 lbs. each and have fat tires, I recommend the Hollywood Racks RV Rider Bike Rack for 2 Electric Bikes # HLY64FR. This rack can handle 2 bikes weighing up to 80 lbs. each. It also fits tires up to 5" wide. I recommend this rack over the others because the Lets Go Aero rack only carries bikes up to 75 lbs. each and the attachment style on the RV Rider has a little more adaptability than the the other Hollywood rack.
