Recommended Bike Racks for Fifth Wheel Trailer

Question:

can the Highland Sportwing 2 bike rack be used on a fifth wheel camper? if not, why?

asked by: Dennis L


Expert Reply:

Highland, the manufacturer of the Sportwing 2 Bike Rack specifically mentions that the rack is not to be used on a towed trailer. The primary reason for this is that a rack installed on a towed trailer will experience much more shaking and jarring than it would if installed on a vehicle. The rack is not designed to safely withstand that kind of punishment.

We do however offer many different bike racks that are designed for use on the rear of a towed trailer, I will provide you a link to our selection of bike racks suitable for use on your fifth wheel trailer.

The Swagman XTC-2, part # S64670, would be a great choice. I will also provide a link to our product demonstration video for the XTC-2.
