The support arms are constructed of aluminum to resist rusting over time, extending the life of your purchase. The lightweight construction makes removing the arms for storage a breeze - just pull a pin and the arms slide off.

cradles feature soft padding and adjust easily with a knob

The carrier cradles slide up and down the arms to accommodate various bike sizes and adjust easily with integrated knobs. The cradles feature soft foam padding to protect your bike and quick-release straps for easy bike mounting. Carrier arms also feature pads to protect your bike frame from scratching during transport.

pedals and wheels are held in place during transport with straps

Rubber wheel and pedal straps hold the bike in place during transport. The easy-to-use straps prevent bike-to-bike contact when you are hauling more than one bike.

SportWing has a unique, sliding shank that telescopes out to make loading bikes easier. The shank extension is controlled by a knob and is prevented from sliding out of the shank by a built-in safety cable. The extension can be removed to convert your 4-bike carrier to a 2-bike carrier in seconds.

Video Transcript for Highland SportWing 4 Bike Rack Review

Toay we're going to be taking a look at the Highland Sport Wing four bike craft for 2 inch hitches. Part number 1370400. The Highland Sport Wing holds up to four bikes of different shapes and sizes. Using it's unique v-shape design allows us to carry a mountain bike, a road, a women's bike ,a children's bike, as well as many other styles of bikes, eliminating the need for a bike adapter bar. This bike rap is also RV, motor home and trailer approved. We've removed some of the bikes so you can get a better look at the v-shape design. The bike is held in place for the v-shape pad and cradles. The cradles grip the wheel so there's no frame contact.

The cradles are adjustable along the arms to accommodate the variety of bike styles you may want to carry. Each arm features an adjustable foam pad to help further protect your bike. When only transporting one or two bikes, our two extra cradles can be removed. Simply undo this lever here, unclip it, and then slide it off. The bike rack is made out of a lightweight aluminum construction and has a weight capacity of 160 pounds. Now that we've gone over some of the features, I'll go ahead and show you how to install it. What you want to do is we'll guide the shank into the receiver and line up our pin holes.

Once we have that lined up, we'll take our included pin and clip, push that through, put our clip in place and then we've got it. Now we can go ahead and load up our bike. First thing we want to do is make sure our straps are undone. Then we'll grab the bike and what you want to do is you want to guide the wheel on to the v-shape cradle, just like that. Once we have that in position, we can run our strap back over to hold it in place. Now with our bike in place in the v-shape cradles, we can go ahead and bring up our pads to ensure that our bike doesn't knock up against our bike rack. Then we can also take our included hook and loop straps to keep the bike from swaying back and forth while we're driving down the road.

We'll simply just go around our frame here, then around the pad. To load up our remaining bikes, the Sport wing has one more great feature, it's hiding. You simply come down here, undo the lever, pull out our second set of cradles, and this gives us plenty of space to load up our second, third, and fourth bikes. Now with all of our bikes in place, it's just a matter of pushing it right back in place, tightening up the lever, and then we're ready to get on our way. During our test course, let's firs go into our slalom. This is going to show us side to side action such as going around corners or evasive maneuvering. Then on core alternating speed bumps, this is going to show a twisting action such as going over potholes or uneven pavement.

Then finally onto our solid speed bumps, this is going to show an up and down action, such as pulling in and out of a driveway or out of a parking lot. That's going to complete our look at the Highland Sport Wing four bike rack for 2 inch hitches. Part number 1370400.

Ellen, Ext 389, did not actually place this order for me due to an obligatory childcare absence on the day I needed to order. However, she deserves credit for it because of the extraordinary effort she exerted on my behalf on the day prior to my purchase. Using the information she had provided me, I decided that I had only two choices in a satisfactory bike rack: the Highland SportWing and the Yakima Swing Daddy. My 2001 Isuzu Trooper w/ continental kit has a ¾ left-hand door that must swing horizontally over any attached rack. Even the Yakima Flipside lacked that necessary clearance. The Swing Daddy does work but costs 70% more. Considering our current house improvement expense, my choice was evident. Yes, I must remove the inside bike and left-hand support for the door to clear. The effort required is minimal, however, and accomplishes full access to the rear cargo area. That’s an excellent cost/return ratio. I will say that I did NOT use the included silent hitch pin to secure the rack to the receiver. Instead, I used my key-locked pin. The fit is just as tight as was encountered with the one provided; and, of course, by using mine the rack can no longer be removed with a simple wrench. I don’t know the amount of the cost differential between the two; but I might recommend that the vendor forget about the silent pin and provide the key-locked one instead. That additional degree of security provided both my wife and me with enormous peace of mind. Thus far, I have encountered no other problems with this rack. Loading two adult bikes would be difficult for a single individual, I believe; but at this point I can’t envision carrying two them by myself anyway. And I can envision the loading process getting easier with experience. So, yes, for my particular situation the Highland SportWing earns a solid B+. And, again, as I indicated earlier I did work with an exemplary employee prior to making my purchase from this company. I would definitely recommend them as a first-class vendor. 73381


Thanks for forwarding the review. I am still very much in like with rack and use it often. Have, BTW, had two occasions to recommend the site to others.

I bought this rack and a 2" receiver hitch for my 2011 Ford Transit Connect, and promptly left for a 2000 mile round trip to Florida. I develop recumbent bicycles as a hobby, and they are notoriously difficult to carry on a rack due to the odd frame shapes, but this rack has no problems with them at all. The rack was noise free, and holds the bikes very securely. E-trailer shipping was fast, pre-delivery communication was very good. The hitch bolted up with four bolts - a really easy operation. I'd definately recommend this to recumbent bike riders tired of heavy, poor-fitting racks. This one is light, versatile, and stores in a small space. 22397


From the photo I see you also have a cruzbike quest. I have the same bike. Do the seat and peddles clear the car easily? Any particular advice for carrying this bike?Thank you

comment by: Lisa F - 10/19/2013


Hi Lisa,This rack carries any of my Cruzbikes with plenty of clearance for seat, pedals and handlebars. I have carried a Quest, Both Silvio V1.0 and V2.0, Sofrider, and a Sofrider set up with 29r tires. I also carry my wifes underseat steering Vision R40 at the same time. Because this is a very wide bike, I use the 4-bike Highlander to carry two bikes.The key to this rack is that it holds the bikes by the wheels instead of the frame, allowing it to accommodate bikes whose frames would be very hard to carry. Because the wheel carriers are very adjustable, just about any recumbent can be accommodated. The velcro securing straps hold very firmly without scratching the bikes up. I carried the Quest and the Vision on a 1400 mile round trip to Orlando with no worries or problems at all. And the rack is lightweight and breaks down into parts easily carried in the trunk or rear section of the carvan.This rack has served me very well.

I have a 3 wheel recumbent and am still trying to figure out how you did that. I was going to ask if this would be a good one for that purpose and what about ease of putting the bike on and off?

comment by: Mary B - 07/21/2014


Mary, since you have a recumbent trike you may also consider the Hollywood Racks # HR1000R-TRKADP. We have sent Doug an email to see if he has anything else to add.

I had a hard time finding a bike rack that I thought would work with the assorted bikes we have. 26 & 24 " womens bike (until I buy a mens bike), 20" girls bike and an Adam's Trail-A-Bike. Everything I was reading about conventional racks was suggesting I needed a bike frame adaptor. For these bikes that would have been another $100+. I saw this one, and since it fastens to the wheels I thought it would work for my needs. We just got back from a four day 200 mile vacation and this rack is outstanding! I stopped at 20 and 50 miles to check on it and everything was still in place. etrailer .com was also outstanding! I ordered this on a Tuesday night and had it Thursday (MN to MO UPS). The only down side I had with the rack is that the directions included, and etrailers.com video are different. When loading it worked best for me to follow etrailers, which said to have large bike in front on high hooks (like it shows in their picture). Highlands directions said to have large bike in front on low hooks. The other diference was how to attach the safety straps. etrailer showed to wrap velcro straps around pedals. I found it worked better Highland's way, which strapped the bike frame to the rack post. This kept the bike tight against the post. Also, it took a little trial and error to get the bikes lined up right (however this was my 1st time using any type of bike carrier). Overall I am very pleased with the Highland Sportwing 4 bike Rack, and etrailer.com. 23469

The rack arrived a day early, thanks again eTrailer. It was very easy to assemble. The best part is that you can adjust and use this rack anyway you want. The one issue is that if you put a bike on the inside of the rack (right behind the trunk), the bike is too close to the bumper. The bikes are kept high of the ground, and are kept secured with little movement. The rack does stick out very far, but if you are a decent driver its a non issue. We have very large mountain bikes with 29 inch wheels, and they fit perfectly. I tried uploading multiple pictures, but the website only allowed me to upload one. My vehicle is a 2014 Jeep Grand Cherokee Altitude. The hitch receiver I'm using is http://www.etrailer.com/p-75699.html 150332

VERY easy to assemble and all pieces align very well. If your bike options don't change (and mine don't, I have a family of 4 and I use the rack for our bikes only), you can set it up to carry the bikes the way you ant them, once, then forget it. I put my kids bikes closest to my SUV, so for those times that I JUST took the kids and their bikes to an event, I would only need to use the rack for two. The extension is set up for my wife's and my bikes, so that's only necessary when we're all heading out together. The best part about this rack for me is how fast it tears apart, including the "wings", and that allows it to fit into a corner of my already packed garage. It takes up very little room. I used a sharpie and labeled the wings (FR or front right, FL for front left, etc.) so the adjustments I made would always be right when I put it back together. I recommend this rack for the price point and flexibility. Sure, there are better racks from Thule and Yakima, but you'll pay WAY more for one that holds 4, and I'll be happier when I pass you on the highway knowing I pocketed a couple $ with mine! 25432

Overall I think the Sport Wing is great. It does exactly what it should do, carry 4 bikes. Out of the box, the rack was easy to put together. Once on the vehicle and loading bikes, thats where things got interesting. We have 4 bikes of different shapes and sizes (18" bmx, 24" mtn bike, 2 26" beach cruisers). Adjusting the hangers to align the bikes to not bang or scratch each other took some time. Once everything was set, subsequent loads were much quicker. To assist with future loads I labeled each are and hanger so I know exactly which bike goes where. Pros: * Carries 4 bikes * Works with any size or shape bike * Fraction of the price of the Thule or Yakima * Lightweight and easy to store * Comes with lots of velco straps to help secure bikes Cons: * Initial setup/alignment was cumbersome, but hopefully just a one-time pain. * Longevity unknown - since it is light weight and breakdowns easily, I'm sure how many miles it will last 138823

We went our 1st trip with the bike rack. The installation went great and the rack worked out great. The best part about the rack is that it can handle any size bike. We have two children of different ages and bike sizes and two adult bikes. This rack was able to handle all 4 bikes of different sizes without any problems. The 1st time you use them it will take an additional 10-20 minutes to get setup, but after that they are set. I would make sure that you have the poles marked to which poles goes into which slot. My only complaints about it (which we knew going in) were: 1. Have to remove the 1st pair of poles (and bikes) in order to get into the back (this is attached to a Honda Odyssey van). 2. There is no way to fold up the rack in order to just leave the bike rack installed without bikes and drive around. You pretty much have to take off the bike rack if you don't have bikes because it hangs too far out the back and would be a hazard. 36587

I bought this product due to how flexible it is and the decent reviews. I am using this on my 2006 Jeep Liberty Diesel. I bought a hitch extender (HE6000) to get past my spare tire, which was needed for my application. Opening the box, I was a little disappointed that there was no anti rattle device, which I have since purchased. Assembly was easy. During assembly, I found the 2nd section was real wobbly. I was looking into an anti rattle device for the 2nd section, when I noticed that the plastic handle of the locking bolt was bottoming out too early. I tried to push the bolt deeper, breaking the plastic. I now use a 3/4" wrench to tighten the 2nd section, and it tightens tight now. Bikes were fairly easy to load. I will probably use cinch straps instead of the included velcro, as I am not comfortable with velcro in this application. Overall, I am fairly pleased. I like the ability to make it into a 2 bike or 4 bike rack the most. 204152

I can't speak highly enough in regards to the customer service I received from this comapny. We make a lot of purchases online and this company is right up at the top of the list when it comes to customer service. My husband ended up installing the bike rack on my 2010 Suburban for me when I went on a last minute group ride...he had it together and ready for me in less than 20 minutes. I was a bit nervous about whether I would be able to manage getting the bike off and on by myself but it seriously couldn't be easier. I was also nervous about hauling it by myself for the first time just in case there were issues with the product but the bike hardly even moved back there. It felt very secure. We haven't had all 4 bikes on it yet but after figuring out how the system works it seems like it shouldn't be too complicated. Would highly recommend etrailer.com and the Highland bike rack as well! 35639

by: Tammie B02/06/2011

I bought this product because I wanted to accomodate 4 bikes of various sizes and weights, including a 50 lb downhill bike, and a childs bike. Also wanted a rack I didn't have to keep on my car in between rides. I have yet to try the child's bike and the 4 bike set-up (used the 2 bike piece only), but so far it's been a good product, lightweight and easy to assemble and disassemble. Because it mounts the bikes on the wheel rims, there is no damage to the frame. My only issues are: the inside bike is a bit tricky to mount, and you have to be careful not to scratch the car paint, but not an issue if it's a lighter bike, or a tall/strong person; and I can't access my rear hatch with the arms on (tho they are very easy to remove), or the rear hatch window with the bikes loaded. I knew this before I bought, but made the compromise for this versitile, well-priced 4 bike rack. 6728

After researching in depth for a bike carrier for an SUV I came to conclusion this would best fit my needs. 4 bikes of various sizes and shapes did not seem like a good match with the hanging models. So far I am very glad I made this decision. Bikes attach easily. The extension telescopes for ease of loading bikes 3&4. It appears durable yet lightweight due to aluminum. I believe with some ingenuity I can make it theft resistant. And with etrailer price match it didn't break the bank. Now the real test is to load up for the 3,000 mile trip ahead of us. If there are any concerns shopping at etrailer there shouldn't be. The only snag was actually a good one to have. The credit card security flagged my card because addresses with PayPal didn't match. This was easily remedied and the shipment arrived in 2 days. 203534

The rack worked great. We got it for our vacation; 400 miles round trip. No problems at all. It does take a bit to get the bikes on. We are a family of four--two adult bikes and two children's bikes. While on our trip we saw someone with a traditional over-the-trunk rack with a women's bike on it. In order to make it work they had to hang the bike up-side down! That won't be an issue with this rack. The customer service was fantastic. I ordered the rack on a Saturday. Within a couple of hours I received an email that it was ready for shipping! The rack was at our door within a few days. 56651

I placed my order late Sunday evening and shipment was received by Wednesday. I like this bicycle carrier because of the versatility of it; carrying different sized bicycles easily. It is easy to set up and easily adjustable. In fact my 8 yr. old daughter did most of the assembly. It is also easy to store since it breaks down to smaller pieces which will fit almost anywhere. I would recommend purchasing a locking pin in place of the hitch pin it comes with, but that is for your own protection. The one sent gets the job done unless you are concerned with theft. 89084

Great bike rack. Likes: - Assembles quickly - under 20 min with a 1/2" rachet. - Converts from 4 bikes to 2 bikes - Holds the bikes via the wheels, which makes them easier to load and handles different sizes well - Minimal wiggling and bouncing You'll need about 15 minutes the first time only to figure out the best positions for the clamps... 95669

Easy to assemble and it works great. The ability to quickly change from a 2 bike to a 4 bike carrier is really nice. My old bike carrier supported the bike frames and it really scratched up my aluminum frame mountain bike when loading and unloading. The Highland SportWing holds the bikes wheels and has foam bumpers around the posts which protects your bikes nicely. It also eliminates the need to purchase a $30 extra bar to carry a woman's bike. The only weakness of this product is the lack of a pre-attached security cable and lock. 52853

by: Melhem J.04/07/2014

Excellent product. It was very easy to assemble. Any size of bike would fit. Easy to remove, I thought that I would need a hitch receiver lock, in fact I bought one and I didn`t have to use it, because I removed the whole rack in 1 min and packed it in my trunk. I would recommend this product 124185

by: Roger G.03/28/2014

Very versatile design which will carry most any kind of bike. I happen to have a couple of recumbent bikes which need either a platform or the style of the SportWing which secures the bikes by the wheels. The rack comes with about a 10 inch piece of rubber for each "wing" to protect the bike's frame, which would usually be adequate, but I added about a foot of foam pipe insulation of 1 3/8 ID to cover even more of the aluminum brace. Overall a very good product. 122743

This works well for a variety of bikes. I have a 7 and 10 year old and knew that I'd have several bike changes over the years. This works with all our bikes. I would not recommend buying the extra lock however. What a pain to get it threaded just right! After about 40 minutes of trying, I used just the clip lock that was included and it worked wonderfully. No rattling, no swaying. A good rack without having to buy a ton of extras to accommodate all bike types. 9803

by: Trey W.05/14/2012

This bike rack exceeded my expectations. It is much sturdier than I originally thought it would be. It is easy to assemble and take down. My only concern was that i never saw a picture with four bikes loaded. I was worried that it would be difficult to load all four. This was not the case. We have four full sized mountain bikes and they all fit easily on the rack. 40310

by: Kyle Q06/26/2013

Works great, very little flex or wobble. Only complaint is the lynch pins that hold the arms onto the main body are lightweight (it's only a bike rack) but the spring 'keeper' mechanism is really flimsy, and one already has been lost. Pin was still there, but the keeper fell off in transit. Upgraded to implement grade lynch pins. 86287

by: Alex Bernier03/21/2012

Sturdy design works well with all types of bikes. Really like the fact you can either use it for two bike's or four bike's depending on your needs. Price is also really good found other place's but is more money when you have to pay for shipping but that is not he case here. 34610

by: Dean B.05/25/2014

Works exactly as advertised. Sturdy and we're pleased with its functionality. The only downside is you need to take the arms off to get in the back hatch of a minivan, but the arms remove quickly and easily so it's not a huge deal. Overall great product for the price. 132368

For the price, this is a great option. Love how it can carry all sizes of frames, and can easily switch from 4 bike to a 2 bike option. Also like how the arms can be removed for easy and light weight storage. 73740

The second set of bike holders cannot be locked to the rest of the bike rack. Otherwise, I really like this rack. 24678

Ask the Experts about this Highland Hitch Bike Racks
Do you have a question about this Hitch Bike Rack?

  • Will a Hitch Mount Hanging Bike Rack Damage the Cables on a Trek Hybrid Bicycle
  • Using a hanging rack like the Standard 4 Bike Rack, # S64400, could put pressure on the cable. And while in transit the bike will move at least a little which will apply some friction to the cable. So while it is highly unlikely it will damage the cable, it is possible, but i have not heard of any problems like this occurring. This rack does have channels in the cradles to help protect the cables on bikes. You may want to consider a platform rack that secures the bike at the wheels...

  • Is Kuat NV 2-Bike Rack, part # N101, Compatible with Elliptical Bikes Like the ElliptiGO 8C
  • The unusual design and dimensions of the ElliptiGO 8C make it an unsuitable fit for most standard bike racks because of the absence of a typical top frame tube, the very long wheelbase, and the width of the bike. The Kuat NV, part # N101, can handle bikes with a wheelbase up to only 48 inches so the 54-inch wheelbase of the ElliptiGO is not compatible. Also, since its platform centers are 13 inches apart, two bikes of 14-1/2 inch width would definitely have the potential to rub against...

  • Hitch-Mount Bike Rack for Use on 2008 Toyota FJ Cruiser with Rear-Mounted Spare Tire
  • Yes, indeed! We can help you select a 2-inch hitch-mount bike rack for use on your 2008 Toyota FJ Cruiser with rear-mounted spare tire. We offer a range of 4-bike hitch racks that will fit the 2-inch Class III hitch on your FJ. First, you will want to take one simple measurement of the vehicle. Measure from the center of the hitch pin hole to the rear-most part of the vehicle; in your case this will likely be the spare tire cover. The linked article illustrates how to take this measurement,...

  • Swagman Titan 2-Bike Rack # S63400 Recommended for Lexus CT200h
  • The hitch we offer for your CT200h is the Curt Class I, part # C11200. Due to the low tongue weight capacity of the Class I hitch, you will be limited to carrying two bikes, and you must use a Class I compatible bike rack (see provided link). Due to the relatively low rear height of your Lexus, I would recommend using a rack that has an angled shank for greater ground clearance. I really like the Swagman Titan, part # S63400. This rack provides all of what I consider the most important...

  • Using Hitch Extension for Bike Rack to Clear Spare Tire on Jeep Wrangler
  • Ideally, using an extension should be avoided if at all possible. An extension lowers the tongue weight capacity of the hitch by 50 percent, and also allows the hitch mounted accessory to bounce around much more than it would if it were installed directly into the hitch. First, I would recommend finding out how much clearance you need. Measure from the hitch pin hole rearward until the furthest rearward portion of the spare tire is cleared. You will need to choose a bike rack whose hitch...

  • Recommended Highland SportWing Hitch Bike Rack For 2 Beach Cruiser Bikes
  • I would agree with you. If you have a 2 inch hitch I would pay the extra and get the Highland SportWing Aluminum Hitch-Mounted, 4-Bike Carrier, part # 1370400, instead of the VeeMe Aluminum Hitch-Mounted, 2-Bike Carrier, part # VME-V2. You will be getting the stronger 2 inch shank and the extra weight limit which will help with the heavier beach cruiser bikes. The upper cradles of the V-shaped support arms can be adjusted up to 46 inches apart for installation of the bikes. So if your...

  • Looking for the Perfect 4 Bike Rack for a 2011 Honda Odyssey
  • Thanks for all of the great information on what you are looking for and why. The Highland Sportwing rack, # 1370400, you were looking at would be a good choice. It is pretty easy to load the bikes on and is a quality rack. One drawback is the rack, is the rack is bulky for storage and installation. For all of the specifications that you are looking for, I believe that a single arm rack with rotating cradles would be the best option, like the Swagman XP, # S64940. This rack is ultra-sturdy,...

  • 4-Bike Platform Style Bike Carrier for a 2014 Acura MDX
  • I am so glad that you like the hitch you bought for your 2014 Acura MDX. Now, let's get you a bike rack! The Curt Class III trailer hitch # C13146 measures 2-3/4 inches from the center of the hitch pin hole to the back of the rear bumper on your 2014 Acura MDX. This means that any bike rack is going to clear the rear of the vehicle. Based on what you are looking for and the different styles of bikes you want to carry I have some excellent recommendations for you. What you are looking...

  • Trailer Hitch Mount 4 Bike Rack that Can be Reduced to a 2 Bike Rack
  • On the Sportrack # SR2902LR the 2 platforms that each hold 2 bikes are actually attached to one another at the shank and cannot be separated easily. There are a couple of platform bike racks that will allow you to remove the furthest 2 platforms. The Thule T2, # TH916XTR-918XTR, and the Kuat NV 4 Bike Carrier, # N101-103 can have the back part taken off to change it to a 2 bike rack. A similar style rack that hold the bikes at the wheel and that you can remove the back part is the...

  • What Locking Hitch Pin Can be Used with the Highland SportWing Bike Rack on a 2010 Honda CR-V
  • The anti-rattle locking hitch pin that I would recommend for the Highland SportWing Bike Rack, # 1370400, on your 2010 Honda CR-V is the Softride Anti-Rattle Device and Lock, # SR25219. This anti-rattle lock will only work with hollow shanks. I have attached a video of this locking anti-rattle hitch pin for you to check out.

  • Trailer Hitch and Hitch Mount Bike Rack Recommendations for a 2010 Hyundai Sante Fe
  • With any of the available trailer hitches for the 2010 Hyundai Santa Fe, the cross tubing is going to be somewhat visible beneath the rear fascia, so I would not say that any of them are low profile. I recommend the Curt Trailer Hitch, # C13073. It is a little more economical than the other available hitches and it will work on models with single or dual exhaust. I have included a link to the installation instructions below. For a bike rack, I recommend the VeeMe 2, # VME-V2. This...

  • Trailer Hitch and Bike Rack Recommendations for a 2008 Chrysler Town and Country
  • The best and safest way to carry 4 bikes all on one rack is to install a Class III trailer hitch on your 2008 Chrysler Town and Country, # 87451, and use a hitch mounted bike rack. There are different types of hitch mount bike racks. The most versatile as far as the types of bikes they can carry without the use of an adapter are platform style racks or racks that hold the bikes at the wheels. Our most popular 4-bike platform rack is the Swagman XTC4, # S64665. I have included a link...

  • Fit of Thule Apex Swing 4 Bike Carrier # TH9027 on Land Rover LR3 With Over-Sized Rear-Mount Spare
  • There are extenders/adapters available for use with hitch-mount accessories like the Thule Apex Swing 4 Bike Carrier # TH9027, however all such items have the unavoidable side-effect of reducing your hitch's capacity by 50-percent. This is due to the altered geometry of the hitch and extender. In the same way that slipping a pipe over a tire iron gives you additional leverage to loosen a lug nut, a hitch extender will place greater forces on the hitch and this is why you lose capacity.

  • Can Swagman XTC-4 4-Bike Carrier # S64665 be Used on 2012 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited Sport Edition
  • There are two things to considers in terms of the fit of the Swagman XTC-4 4-Bike Carrier # S64665 on your 2012 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited Sport Edition. One is the overall tongue weight capacity for the hitch and the other is the amount of clearance needed to fit around the rear-mounted spare tire. We offer both 1-1/4-inch Class II and 2-inch Class III hitch receivers for your 2012 Wrangler Unlimited Sport Edition. (Please note the XTC-4 fits only 2-inch hitches.) These hitches are rated...

  • Using SportWing Bike Rack for 2 Inch Receiver on Class II Hitch on a Honda Odyssey
  • The Highland SportWing Bike Rack you referenced, part # 1370400 can be used with a hitch adapter like part # HTAD, but doing so would reduce the tongue weight capacity (maximum amount of weight that can safely be suspended from the receiver) by half. Using an adapter moves the load rearward from the receiver, which dramatically increases the leverage placed on the receiver, like using a cheater bar on a socket wrench to loosen a stubborn bolt. If your receiver is a Class II (check sticker...

  • Can Highland Sportwing 4 Bike Rack 1370400 Carry a 53lb Downhill Bike with 29in tires
  • I checked with my contact at Highland, and I confirmed that the carrier would be able to handle a 53lb bike, and the wheel cradles will accept your 3in wide tires. The Aluminum SportWing bike rack # 1370400 has a weight capacity of 160lbs, but the bikes can vary in weight as long as the total load is less than the bike rack capacity. I am including a link to a video review of the SportWing bike rack for reference, if needed.

  • Will the Swagman XTC4 or a Similar Bike Rack Accommodate Childrens Bikes on a 2009 Volvo XC70 Wagon
  • The Swagman XTC4, # S64665, will accept a tire diameter greater than 15 inches. The minimum wheel base (center of front wheel to center of back wheel) is 27-1/2 inches. If the bike you want to place in the rack fits within those dimensions, then the hook will come down far enough to secure the bike (about 13-1/2 inches from the lowest point on the top of the wheel hoop to the inside of the hook at its lowest position). If you determine the bikes dimensions just will not fit with the...

  • Difference Between Highland SportWing Hitch Bike Racks # 1370400 & 1375500
  • The Highland hitch-mount bike rack you referenced, # 1370400, is an aluminum 4-bike carrier. The other part number you gave, 1375500, is a steel rack that is no longer made according to my contact at Highland. The SportWing provides a lot of clearance at the back of the vehicle - 15-1/2-inches from the center of the hitch pin hole - which makes it ideal for bikes with wide handlebars, such as beach cruisers and mountain bikes. It is also adjustable to accommodate bikes of different sizes....

  • We do have a 4-bike carrier that is rated for an RV, but it is not the Highland SportWing Bike Carrier # 1370400 you referenced as it is not meant to be used with an RV or camper. I recommend the Swagman Hitch-Mounted RV and Motor Home Bike Rack # S64940. It can carry up to 4 bikes with cradles that rotate left to right to accommodate many womens, childrens, and alternatively-framed bicycles by keeping wheels level to improve ground clearance. You will need to ensure your trailer...

There are many bike racks that will clear this distance. To be sure though you will want to take that measurement yourself. I have linked an article to the right that should help. When using a hanging bike rack like the Apex, # TH9025, and if you will be carrying any bikes that do not have a top frame bar that goes straight across...

  • Comparing the Highland Sportwing and Swagman XTC-4 Four Bike Trailer Hitch Mount Bike Racks
  • The Highland Sportwing, # 1370400 and the Swagman XTC4, # S64665 are 2 very different styles of bike racks, so it is tough to compare them to each other. Both are going to hold 4 bikes or various styles, but the edge goes to the Sportwing because it holds the bikes at the wheels and does not require a third attachment point at the frame. The XTC-4 is going to be heavier, about 60 pounds, compared to the Sportwing at about 35 pounds. This will make the Sportwing easier to install and...

  • Trailer Hitch Mount Bike Rack that Extends Out 13 Inches to Clear Large Spare on 2005 Jeep Liberty
  • We have several trailer hitch mount bike racks that extend out at least 13 inches or more from the center of the hitch pin hole to the nearest part of the carrier. The Thule T2, # TH916XTR-918XTR, for example measures 19 inches when folded down (but only 4-1/2 inches when folded up). This rack can tilt down as well. It will only fit a 2 inch hitch. The Highland SportWing, # 1370400, does not tilt but it does measure 15-1/2 inches to the nearest part of the rack. It also only fits 2 inch...

The DeadBolt Locks 10 foot Long Cable Lock, item # CAB-10, is a great choice for this application. By running the cable through the safety chain loop on your trailer hitch and then through each bikes frame and/or wheels you can secure the whole system to the vehicle.

  • Inexpensive Trailer Hitch Mount Bike Rack for 4 Bikes on a 2002 Dodge Durango

Very small childrens bikes and bikes that have a step-through frame will need an adapter, # 64005. I have linked a video that shows how it works. For a rack that holds the bikes...

  • Trailer Hitch Mount Bike Rack for 4 Bikes at the Back of an RV
  • There are only certain bike racks that are rated for use at the back of an RV or trailer. The Hollywood Racks Sport Rider # HR1400 is not one of them though. The issue is that the rear of an RV or trailer is further from the axle than on a passenger vehicle. This creates much more movement and stress on anything at the back, like riding at the back of a school bus. But there are options for bike racks that are rated for use at the back of an RV or trailer. I have included a link to the...

There is a slight rise in the shank but probably not enough to compensate for inclines and dips in the road.
