What rack would work

Mad's Photo Mad 19 Mar 2017

I have a trailer as per the pic fitted with a rack. Is there a type of bikerack for three bikes that would fit on here.

your best bet would be the roof rack rails. Try Thule or Holdfast

I would say the old school axle mounting one side(front) and a locating channel/angle iron with a strap for the rear wheel,(can easily modify a Thule tie down) cheap effective,
Two bike facing the one way and the third opposite, between the two,
Doubt you would get 3 Thule racks and they stupid money now for something that won't cost you R1500

I like the Holdfast racks.
I've used the top runner for a couple of years now.

I'd vote for this option. Easy to accommodate both QR & TA bikes if you do it properly.

I just did a trailer project and found the best option was to purchase second hand Thule Freeride bike racks and managed to fit 4 to my trailer

Venter has a bike rack system they sell, it's not flash like Thule, but practical.
