2 Bike Rack For Use Between a Class A Motorhome and a Towed Vehicle

Question:

Im looking for a 2 place bike rack to hitch mount between my class A motorhome and my towed vehicle. Ill be using the Roadmaster Falcon 2 towbar. It seems that Ive seen them on other RVs.

Expert Reply:

It sounds like you are looking for a Dual Hitch Adapter, see link. I would recommend the Roadmaster Dual Hitch Receiver Adapter, item # RM-077-2, for towing a vehicle and using a bike rack in the top receiver.

You could use the Swagman Platform-Style 2 Bike Carrier, item # S64663, which would be a good choice, or any of the bike racks we have rated for use behind a RV that will fit in a 2 inch hitch, see link.

With the addition of the Roadmaster Dual Reciever, you should be able to clear the spare tire. The dual receiver measures 10-1/4 inches from pin hole to pin hole. The bike carrier provides 10-1/2 inches from the pin hole to the upright arm. You will have over 20 inches from the pin hold on your RV hitch to the bike rack with the dual receiver. Just make sure to adjust the platforms to make sure the handle bars on the bike are away from the spare.
