Today we're going to be taking a look at the Swagman 4 Bike RV Mounted Bike Rack, part number S80600. As you can see, the bumper-mounted bike rack is going to allow us to transport up to 4 bikes to wherever we need to go. We are limited to 30 lb per bike. They use a very heavy duty steel construction which gets us up to that weight limit. As you can see there's also a nice, black powder coat finish. It's going to resist corrosion and keep a long-lasting good look for us.
We've got additional support bars mounted right to the frame of the rack. They come up to give us a good connection point to secure our bikes. Now that we've gone over the features of it, let me show you how to get this installed on your motorhome. As you can see, we've already got half of it installed. I just wanted to save you a little bit of time. They're going to install exactly the same way.
What we'll do is you can see I've started loosely my front set of bolts. I just do that so that when I slide it on it's going to give me a good stopping point you can see there. Then we want to adjust it, of course, so the front wheel of our bike will sit on one side and the rear wheel will sit on the other. It's adjustable as, well, as wide as your bumper is so it'll have good adaptability with a wide variety of bikes. We're going to take our two bolts and slide those right down through. They'll go through the top and then also the bottom support bar that's down here.
We've then got a washer that goes on, as well as a nylon locking nut. We thread those right on the bottom of both of our bolts. Now let's start tightening them down. Once we have our rear bolts tightened there, we'll take care of our front ones. As you can see, nice and secure, and snug.
Now two things to keep in mind. There's two special bolts. You've got a shorter set of bolts. We're going to have eight of them. Two of them are just a little bit longer. Those are designed to go through the two holes where you mount your support brackets. Same can be said for our longer bolts. We've got eight of these as well for mounting to the bumper. Two of them will be slightly longer and those are for use, here and here, on our inter 00:03:17 support bracket that goes up. So just keep that in mind. You'll have two of the longer ones that are a little bit longer, two of the shorter ones that are a little bit longer, and that's where they should go. Now that we've shown you how to install the rack, let's load it up with some bikes. As you can see, our bike rims are going to fit nicely right in between our grooves there, help support them. Of course with our handlebars, we want to put the bikes in back to front, then front to back so we'll have clearance for our bars as we do it. As we've said, this will accommodate 4 bikes. They need to be similar in wheelbase size. As you see we'll have a little bit of wiggle room here, where we can get a few longer, few shorter bikes installed, but they'll need to be pretty similar. As you can see here, we've got our 4 bikes loaded up. We've secured this side by connecting to our front support bar, and we've tied it all the way around into the frame onto our camper. We'll do the same thing here on this side, just connect into our support bar, and then we'll need to feed it in through the rims and frames of our bike. It's important to make your connection directly to the RV or camper. This is going to help us do a couple things. The first thing it's going to do is help us ensure that, in the case of some kind of unfortunate failure, that our bikes are going to stay secured to our rack. But it's also going to help us ensure that our rack stays attached to our RV or our motorhome. That's going to keep both us safe, our equipment safe, and anybody that might be driving behind us safe. See, once we've got those nice and secure, we'll be ready to hit the road and have some fun. .

I was looking for a rack to accommodate 2 adult bikes, my bike trailer and either my kids bikes or a storage bin. My old rack was mounted to a 2" receiver mounted to bumper. My old bumper had to be repaired once since there was so much stress from the single mounting point of the bolt on hitch. I used this rack for 1 year on my old camper and it worked great. It is very sturdy, and by distributing the weight on the bumper, there was/is no movement. I loaded it down with 2 adult bikes, my bike trailer, a porta-tote, a small bin of misc hookup stuff and a large bin with hatchets, hammers, kindling, etc (very heavy). It held up great. It worked so well, and was in such good shape that I kept it and I have mounted it to my new 5th wheel. So far so good. The only thing I have done is replaced the 8 bolts that mount to the bumper with grade-8 since the old grade 5 lock nuts were not in that great a shape. I highly recommend this rack. This was to replace a 2" 248242

Let me start by saying; This is a very secure product, well made and study. I realize that manufactures try to make their product fit as many campers as possible. On my 5th wheel unit the verticle up-right closest to the camper would not fit, there is not enough room for it and the bike rack to fit under the base of the camper. The position for the rear bumper prohibits this from happening, the front of the bumper tucks under the rear of the camper. To help stablize my bicycles more, I drilled an additional hole in this up-right and mounted it to the opposite side of the rack in the same position of the other verticle up-right, using longer bolts, it works great now. I'm sure this voided my warranty, Oh well. 186420

For the few times we take bikes with us, it has worked out well. I use pool noodles over the bike frames and rack bars to keep from scratching the paint off the bikes. I spaced them for adult bikes, so the kids bikes don't sit down tight. I've just used the 1" tie ratchet straps and rubber straps to hold everything down. It can be challenging to get 4 bikes secure, but I haven't lost one yet. There really aren't any good spots to hook into, so I may modify accordingly. I would probably by them again. 270922

solid construction, easy assembly, I had to make some adjustments to work around my spare tire.(moved the tire over 4 inches)The two bike model would not have worked. I am using the 4 bike carrier for two bikes and could carry a third in the outer slots if necessary. 50793

So far, so good. Assembles well. Watch the video for helpful tips provided by etrailer. Lock washers are flimsy- they squish out rather than staying in place- heavier gauge lock washers needed here. Was actually able to vary the width of the rack by having the racks angle inward- helps to seat the bikes in the grooves better. Long trip ahead of us- I'll be able to speak more to the overall performance and quality by the end of July. 260328
We bought the Swagman 4 Bike Carrier RV Mounted Bike Rack and the cam buckle tie down straps. We've used both and are very satisfied with the quality. We normally don't write reviews but were extremely happy with the service we received from etrailer.com. They really made an extra effort to make sure our shipment arrived to us before we went out of town and their customer service is excellent. Thanks for a great experience. 217059

Placed an order and an item was on back order. Was informed via telephone/email it would take 4-6 weeks. After speaking with representative who was very helpful found similar product which I agreed to. Order was shipped in its entirety and arrived 2 days later. Products look great and costumer service was very good. 301393

Good product, well made and fits just like the picture illustrates. My only concern was with the hard wear, the bolts and washers were the correct length and size, but the lock washers failed when tightened. etrailer.com gave me a fair price and timely free shipping. 336057

works great, easy installation took all 4 bicycles on it for spring break and it worked great and it was simple and easy to install. the only drawback was i had to remove my spare tire and holder, but i thought i might have to do that when i bought it. 1677
A winner, especially mnt.bikes We ahd nowhere to mount the conventional bike racks as we also take our 4 kayaks on the roof top. Whit the different types of bikes the rack could accomodate both mountain bikes and conventional bieks. 2317

Stoked for this bike rack. I've got 4 kids. I ordered a ladder rack also so my bride and I don't have to leave our bikes behind! Super fast shipping. Great company. 323318
Easy to mount on the bumper took about 10 minutes. Bikes ride nice on it I just use straps to secure them. Would recommend it you need a 4 bike rack to purchase this one. 249921

Although we have not put the bikes on the rack yet, it seems to be a sturdy product, and was not difficult to attach to our camper bumper. THANX 273195
