The HR8000 Traveler 4-Bike Hitch Mount is designed to fit a 2 inch receiver. 1 1/2″ and 2″ receivers are the most popular style receivers on the market today.
Carries up to 4-Bikes
At first 4 bikes sounds like a lot to be sticking off the back of a vehicle, but the HR8000 Traveler 4-Bike Hitch Mount Rack actually makes it look easy, mostly due to great construction.
The Rack tilts down for luggage compartment access arms is able to tilt down (or back) to provide clearance for opening your tail gate.
Some consumers with Opening Glass such as on the Chevy Trailblazer, say they have clearance to open those windows just fine.
Super Saver Shipping
Another feature you have to love is Super Saver Shipping. This is available when you purchase your HR8000 Traveler 4-Bike Hitch Mount through Amazon.com. This means “Free Shipping” on qualified orders.

A nice Sturdy System. Well made.
Very nice rubber securing system requiring no tools.
The HR8000 Traveler 4-Bike Hitch Mount Rack utilizes a threaded Hitch Pin. This means you have an interference fit, which means you have no wobble.
The Rack Tilts down to allow access to the tailgate, or luggage compartment of your truck or SUV.
When no bikes on board the Bike Rack is tucked up neatly to the back of the bed or tailgate.
The only thing close to a con would be the locking of Bike Rack itself. It would be nice if the hitch pin lock could be included versus ordering separately, as the vast majority will want one these days, this would also eliminate the possibility of a wrong order.
Final Thoughts on the HR8000 Traveler 4-Bike Hitch Mount
There may be many bike racks cheaper, but few as well designed for the money. The HR8000 Traveler 4-Bike Hitch Mount Rack is a great entry price for a 4 bike rack hitch system.
The tilting back of the bike rack to allow for luggage area entry is a fantastic feature, as are the bike securing straps. We would definitely recommend this as a good buy.
