Note: This dual-arm rack reduces the need for a bike frame adapter bar (sold separately) to mount a children's, women's, or alternative frame bicycle. However, to mount certain bikes or to keep your bike level on the rack, a bike adapter bar may be required.


This hitch-mounted bike rack lets you securely transport up to 5 bikes on the back of your vehicle. Its tapered dual arms provide excellent support for adult and child-size bikes. The anti-sway cradles securely hold your bikes during transport. Plus, the rack tilts away from your vehicle for easy access to your vehicle's rear cargo area.


Tapered, Dual Folding Arms

Curt premium 5-bike carrier with tapered, dual arms.

The tapered dual arms on this rack are ideal for securely carrying bikes for the whole family. The arms are 16" apart near the mast for carrying mom's and dad's bikes. The spacing between the arms then narrows to 10" at the end of the rack, making it easier to carry the kids' bikes. Because children's bikes have small frames, they often require the use of a bike frame adapter bar to span the width of dual-arm bike racks. Because the arms on this rack narrow at the end, most child-size bikes will fit without the need for an adapter.


Curt premium 5-bike carrier arms fold down when not in use.

When you're not carrying bikes, simply remove the tethered bail pin to fold the arms down. This folding design allows you to leave the carrier mounted on your vehicle when it's not in use.


Anti-Sway Cradles

Curt premium 5-bike carrier anti-sway cradles.

Anti-sway cradles with rubber straps help to hold your bikes securely on the rack. The straps secure each bike frame to the cradles in 3 spots - 2 on the top tube and 1 on the downtube - to help prevent bike-to-bike and bike-to-car contact. And, the cradles rotate to grab your bike frames at optimal angles. Grooves in the cradles keep your brake lines from getting twisted or pinched.


Tilting Mast for Easy Access to Cargo Area

Curt premium 5-bike carrier tilts down for easy access to your cargo area.

Getting into your rear cargo area is easy. Remove the tethered bail pin at the base of the rack. Then lift the spring-loaded, T-shaped handle on the back of the mast to release the rack from its upright position.


Built-in bar at the base of the Curt premium 5-bike carrier.

A horizontal bar at the base keeps the mast from pivoting too far forward and holds it in place while you access your cargo area. When you raise the mast back up, the T-shaped handle will snap back into place. Then simply reinsert the pin and clip to secure the mast in its upright position.


Tie-down rung on the mast of the Curt premium 5-bike carrier.

A built-in rung on the back of the upright mast provides an anchor point for a stabilizing strap or cable lock (each sold separately) to keep your bikes' handlebars and wheels from moving during transport. Simply thread the strap through the rung and through your bikes' wheels to immobilize them. You can also use a cable lock in conjunction with the stablizing strap to secure your bikes to the rack.


Anti-Wobble Hitch Pin

Threaded hitch pin and shank prevent rattle and wobble of the Curt premium bike rack

The included threaded hitch pin helps to keep the rack from moving and rattling around inside of your vehicle's hitch by pulling the shank tight to the side of the receiver.

Product was delivered in a timely manner. I am very pleased with the quality of Curt products, especially when you compare the price to Yakima and Thule. Look forward to taking the whole family on bike outings. 345201

We like it, the only complaint is that smaller bikes can be difficult to mount due to frame design, no fault of yours. Rack is solid!

We shopped around at stores and online for about 3 weeks. We wanted a good product to use for traveling and riding in the city. Curts was our best choice. It took some time for the bike rack to come to our home. Nonetheless, the company e-mailed us right away to explain and give us options. We loved that, customer service is soooooo very critical. Now the rack: Its really heavy, it comes in a big box. The bike rack was sort of challenging at first to put together. It took a little over 1 hour to put together and attach to truck. Please tighten up each and every screw "Husbands" lol lol. The direction was somewhat helpful. Maybe, having each piece with a number diagram on paper could help. What really helped was the actual video on the website after all pieces were put together. That was very helpful. Its on you tube as well. The bike rack performs exactly how the video describes it. Gave 4 stars for pulling the pens to let down the rack to enter the trunk of the Tahoe can be difficult. Those pens should have some cushion or foam for better gripping. Overall, 5 stars the quality is excellent along with the craftsmanship and sturdiness of the product. The price is definitely worth it. I received a couple of compliments. 407279

Works best for grown up bikes, but kid bikes can be troublesome given some of the crazy designs they have now days. Quality was good. 423972

Great product. Very easy to assemble and install on the hitch. It supports the weight of five adult bikes nicely. The bikes don't bounce around much at all when I'm driving. The cap that hold on the reflector at the end of one of the arms is slightly torn, so that is a bit loose and I'm not sure how long that reflector will stay on. That is the only reason I gave this four stars instead of five. Hopefully that part can be replaced. But functionally, I cannot say enough good about this bike rack. If you are in the market for a five bike rack, this does the job nicely. The only other issue is that I ordered a locking pin so that I could secure the rack to the hitch without worrying about theft. I spoke to a rep on the phone who told me that this is what I wanted, however. However, this locking pin is not compatible with this bike rack so don't get it. Here is the wrong locking pin that I ordered: 63232 - Anti-Rattle Trailer Hitch Receiver Lock for 2" Hitches - 2-5/8" Span. I haven't been able to find out if there is another locking pin that would work with this rack or not. I may keep this one to use with other equipment I have or I may return it for a refund. Either way, I'm glad I bought the bike rack and would highly recommend it to anyone. I love etrailer.com. 558408

Came on time as promised and it took about 15 minutes to put together. Haven't put bikes on it yet though,but feels very solid with no movement or vibration,excellant product,very satisfied!! 268498

I haven't officially used this product, however I have put it on my van and here is my first impression. Overall the product is strong. The only 3 things that I can see is a problem. If you have kids with training wheels, this product wouldn't work. Bikes are to close together for training wheels. If your adult bike has a little curve or the cross bar is large, you will have a little trouble putting it on. The next thing is the bolt that allows you to access the rear hatch is a pain. How they have it set up, you need a wrench to take the bolt out just to get into the rear hatch. 501653



- C18065
by:

very good product at a great value from this website. Came almost entirely assembled and finished it up in a short period of time, only took two bolts and it was installed on the van. This rack however does not fit the bikes as tightly as I would have liked, but part of that is because of my wives bike being a very difficult size right between a large child's size or a small adult size. So for that reason I gave it 4 stars, but I don't think any hanging bike rack out there a way to solve this problem. We will see how it works for the rest of the summer and I will adjust the review if necessary. But i don't think you can beat this rack at this price. 541780

Solid bike rack with 31 hour order to ship from etrailer.com. Installed and Recommend! Pros: - Solid construction. Should last years. I can see the rubber straps break down over time so I plan on applying UV protector for rubber (i.e. Armour All) to keep it in good shape and maximize its lifespan. The straps are solid and good quality. - etrailer customer service is the BEST! Very responsive and good communications on when shipped. - etrailer.com ships very fast. They handed it over to UPS the same day as when I ordered. Granted they are in the next state but they ship ASAP which is great. - Sienna rear hatch opens with 6-12 inches of clearance when the rack tilted back. This is nice if you need to access without removing the rack. Note you probably need to remove all bikes to make that work. Bike weight would make it hard to remove the retaining bolt. - Price as good value. - The outside 3 spots are more "narrow" meaning you can put bikes with smaller frames. Cons: - None 546423

I was looking for a Bike carrier for my 2014 Toyota Van, & a van Hitch. I found the Tule 5 bike carrier and e-trailer w/computer search. Ordering was simple, shipping was light speed. From order to delivery was like 3 days. (Had to call a neighbor to watch for pkg. as were away for weekend) I delayed this review so as to use the carrier. I took a trip of 100 miles and the bikes touring mens and women's road secure and the trip was w/o a problem. But, did not order a bar for the women's bike and you "definitely" need one. I made do as I worked maintenance Also once at destination, the grandkids (3 girls) bikes also needs additional bars to load properly. Return trip w/2 bikes was also w/o incident. I would definitely recommend etrailer for your needs along these lines and the Tule Bike carrier. 395291

Needed a 5-bike rack, loved the price of this product. My wife and 3 daughters all have challenging bike frame shapes...it was a struggle the first time figuring out how to get them on. The first 2 bikes that go on are the adult bikes, then the 2 bikerack bars narrow for the last 3 bikes to go on, which is a feature I think is good for kids bikes. I will have to get at least one bike adapter bar to make my wife's bike hang level (due to it's odd frame shape). The triangular mounting pieces on the rack bars are sometimes tricky to get through the corner of a tight, small bike frame, but I was able to get 4 bikes on (haven't tried 5, because my youngest has not learned how to ride yet). The triangular plastic pieces rotate and also slide along the rack bars for even more flexibility of positioning. I like the tilt feature, works great. I like the rubber straps included, they work great. No regrets with this purchase, at this pricepoint it's all and more than I expected as far as quality and ease-of-use. 547636

Still love it! I got an adapter bar for the wife bike and that makes it much easier to load them all. Worth the investment, which is more affordable than most fancy brands.

This product has brought us joy in biking as a family of 6. It can take awhile to get all the bikes loaded but the price was much lower than the Thule brand and to me it’s an ok trade off. Plus we can even open the trunk of the car with all the bikes on if we really need to...with two people. Best part was the customer service of e-trailer. 664225

It was going to cost $50 to rent bikes for the week in Florida, per bike, that's $150 for the week, which i was going to spend so we could ride bikes for the week. After doing some research, i decided to just buy a rack, and take our own bikes. I got this rack for like $$$. I couldn't be happier. Now i have this rack to take our bikes anywhere we want to go!! We had such a great trip and got to take our own bikes and didn't have to worry about renting some. This rack is very solid and was great for the 15 hour drive each way from Illinois to Florida and back. I only took 3 bikes on this 5 bike rack, but I believe could have easily put on 2 more. I do have 2 more small children that didn't take this trip with us, but will be traveling with me in the future, which is why i got the 5 bike rack. It is really convenient how the kids bikes fit on the narrower part. I purchased the SR0901 locking pin to go with this after researching and finding the review that said it would work. [link] it worked perfectly and gave me piece of mind my rack was secured. i also purchased this cable, RKY3850 and just used a lock i had at home to secure the bikes to the rack. I would say this rack would be better if it had the lock and cable already in it, like some of the more expensive racks. It would also be better if the tilting points were simple handles like some of the more expensive racks. The pin and clips can be a bit of a pain and take some getting used to, but they aren't that hard to work. It would just be more convenient to have handles to tilt the rack to get into the trunk, etc. The convenience of having the handles and built in cable and lock is definitely not worth an extra $150-$200 more in price in my opinion. There is also a screw handle that you have to tighten up to get the rack solid and not wiggle, you will see on the video reviews. I found that after a few hours of travel, this screw began to wiggle loose, and needed tightened. I simply checked this, and re-tightened every time we stopped for gas. not a huge issue, but i definitely think this is a design flaw. it didn't need re-tightened every time we stopped, but it usually did, about 75% of the time. Lastly, the kids bikes did not fit on very good, so i had to purchase 2 of these bike adapter bars. I bought them on [site] All in all, i think i made a very solid and affordable purchase. instead of just throwing away $150 to a rental place, now i have this rack to use anytime we want to go out of town. It is certainly not the most expensive rack and doesn't have all the fancy features that the more expensive ones do, but for me and my family, it is perfect. We are not avid bike riders and won't use it every single weekend. If you are looking for one to use every weekend, you may want a more expensive fancier Thule or such. If you are looking for one that you may use a few times per summer, etc, this is a great choice. The rack is also very solid and feels very nice. It is not flimsy. It certainly doesn't feel cheap. Curt has really made a nice product here. It looks really nice as well. It looks pretty fancy and expensive. If would definitely recommend this Curt bike rack and make this purchase again. 362578

This trailer is great! We've used it many times carrying bikes for our family of 4. This model is great for adult and kid bikes and is easy to install and use. When we first purchased it we thought it seemed to away and wobble a bit. Tightening all the screws was all it needed! Customer service was very helpful when I called to resolve this issue. 405584

Very solid product. Well constructed. Doesn't bounce around and rubber bike straps hold bikes in place very well. I'm very confident when using that nothing is going to break or come apart. Comes mostly assembled, so that's nice. Only reason for marking product down comes from the fact that it's a bit overly complicated. Still very manageable, but more complicated than it has to be. Don't expect to keep the rack on your SUV and drive around with it when not bike riding as there are three pins to remove and replace just to tilt it down to open your back hatch. Again, it's easy enough to manage, but just enough of a pain. I showed my wife the three-step procedure and she said "oh heck no!" Plan on packing a pliers with you to more easily pull lynch pins (there are several). Also plan on purchasing a socket wrench with a 3/4" socket to more easily get the main pin screwed on (using a crescent or fixed wrench will take you forever). Also, there is a really good chance that this bike rack will NOT hold kid bikes 20" and smaller. My middle kids' bike (24") barely fits. Not sure if a smaller bike would fit if you purchased an additional seat stem to handlebar adapter. 647699

This bike rack is for 5 bikes, but have not been able to get 5 bikes on it so far. Most can get on is 4 bikes. from all the reviews of this rack and other brands, it was the longest and also had the highest weight capacity. I think if you have like 2 adult bikes and 3 kids bikes, then 5 is possible. We have bikes, 2 cruisers, and 3 regular all more than 24in size. So we use to carry 4 bikes on it, and need to put 1 in the trunk, in van. For the rack it self, it is straight forward to assemble and hook up to van hitch. Also got a Curt 2in hitch installed on van from uhaul. The little pin to tighten the vertical portion of the bike rack lost its threading after like 4 - 5 uses and so it is not useful. They need to redesign so that is it firm and there is no play in it. I called etrailer and they said nothing they can do from their side. I will try local hardware for another screw to see if that will help. The overall order and service from etrailer, was good, i placed order on a Saturday and they also matched another online price and i received my order on Wednesday the following week. To fold down need to unpin, as compared to some other brands that have a 1 pull handle to perform same operation. 864375

The bike rack holds full size bikes pretty well, but young kids bikes are hard to secure without adapter. It’s a bit difficult to wiggle the pin free to angle the rack down. It is not the easiest option on the market for use with a hatch door, but it gets the job done. In the process of putting this in my car trunk and bought a different rack for my SUV. 863639

We are excited to use our new bike rack. Attached it to our hitch with no problems and was able to get 5 bikes on. Great customer service from etrailer. We tried ordering this product through three other places and all were on back order and couldn’t get it to us in time for our trip. etrailer guaranteed their product was in stock and even price-matched it for me. I was able to track my product through the entire process from order placement to delivery. Thank you etrailer! 854882

About product: comes as advertised and truly holds 5 bikes. solid quality. has a threaded pin when attaching to the hitch and an extra pin by the joint to reduce wobbling. there's still a bit of swaying, but performed very well on the road. the only disappointment is that no locking mechanism was included to secure the bike rack (minus 1 star). there are 2 points where the rack has to be secured to avoid potential theft. at hitch and at the joint. you'd need a threaded locking pin and a normal locking pin, which gets pricey. i used 2 luggage locks that fit through the pin holes instead. About service: etrailer delivered this fast and without hiccups. great follow-up service to ensure that i am all set. 853463

The rest of the bike rack would be fine as long as you didn't exceed 175 lbs, but not the frame cradles. For a similar bike rack with a higher weight capacity you would want the Curt Bike Rack part # C18065. It has a 225 total capacity which means it has a 45 lb per bike capacity. If you plan on carrying any womens or alternative framed bikes without horizontal...

  • Hitch and Cable Lock Recommendation for a Curt Bike Rack C18065
    Good news, I went out and grabbed the Anti-Rattle Hitch Lock for SportRack Bike Racks and Cargo Carriers # SR0901 and a Curt Bike Rack part # C18065 and found that the Sportrack hitch locks will fit the Curt racks like this.

  • How to Carry 5 Bikes on the Back of a 5th Wheel Trailer
    Because the ride at the back of a 5th wheel trailer is so much harsher than on a passenger vehicle a bike rack would have to meet certain structural requirements to be strong enough for that application. Some racks are but most are not. There are no 5-bike racks rated and approved for use on a 5th wheel trailer but there are numerous 4-bike models. I have included a link to them for you. The Yakima LongHaul # Y02476 is one of the newest options and it is a solid rack and a great option....

  • Will Five Bikes Be Too Close Together When Carried In Curt Premium 5 Bike Rack # C18065
    The Curt Premium 5 Bike Rack, part # C18065 can carry 5 bikes at one time, and to answer you question, yes they will be very close to each other. You can stagger the way the bikes are loaded so they are not banging into each other. If you are planning on carrying bikes with alternative frames like kids bikes or women's bikes I recommend using an adapter bar like part # 64005. This attaches between the seat post and the handlebar stem and allows the bike to be carried more level in the...

  • Will Curt 5 Bike Rack Fit Draw Tite Hitch Installed in 2017 Dodge Grand Caravan
    Yes, the Curt 5 bike rack part # C18065 that you referenced will fit in the Draw Tite hitch part # 75579 you have installed on your 2017 Dodge Grand Caravan and work well. If you plan on carrying any womens or alternative framed bikes without horizontal top tubes you may also be interested in purchasing a Kuat Bike Frame Adapter Bar # UB01 to provide a horizontal top tube on your bikes to provide an attachment point. I attached a review video for this product also. This will allow the...

  • Lock Recommendation for Curt 5-Bike Hitch Mounted Bike Rack
    Bike rack manufacturers make their threaded hitch pins/locks and threaded rack shanks uniquely threaded so you would not be able to use one brand of lock with another brand bike rack. The best solution to lock the Curt bike rack # C18065 is to use a cable lock such as # e98891 woven through the bikes/rack and the trailer hitch safety chain loops. Or you could go with a different 5-bike rack such as # HR9200 and use lock # HRLHPTC with it. If bike rack # SR2405 with lock set # A32022...

  • Could Curt Bike Rack part # C18065 Clear Rear Spare of 2018 Jeep JL Wrangler Unlimited
    The distance from the pin hole to the back of the upright mast of the Curt bike rack part # C18065 is 10 inches. If the pin hole on your hitch measures less than that to the outside of the rear spare this rack would clear it without issue. For a 5-bike rack that has more clearance than that we have the Thule Vertex part # Y02459 which has 12-3/4 inches from pin hole to upright mast.

  • Can Curt Premium 5 Bike Rack for 2" Hitches Item # C18065 be Tilted with Bikes Loaded
    Technically you could tilt the Curt Premium 5 Bike Rack for 2" Hitches Item # C18065 with the bikes loaded. However, it will be a challenge to do so because the pin that needs to come out to tilt the rack is at the center mast and not all that easy to get to if the rack is loaded. Also it can be difficult to raise or lower the rack when loaded due to the weight of the bikes. This is going to be the case for any of the 5-bike racks.

  • Adapter Recommendation for Curt Hanging Bike Rack for Carrying Women and Kids Bikes
    For womens bikes and kids bikes you really need to use a frame adapter bar like part # UB01 when carrying them on a hanging bike rack. This allows the bikes to hang as level as possible since the bikes will have smaller frames with non-horizontal top tubes. What the adapter does is attach to the seat post and the steering stem to provide a wider and more level bar for the rack to grab. I attached a review video for this adapter for you to check out as well. This adapter would work...

  • Does the Curt Bike Rack C18065 have an Anti-Rattle Hitch Bolt
    The Curt Bike Rack part # C18065 does include a threaded hitch pin bolt that will tighten the shank of the rack to the hitch that the rack is installed in. For a lock that you could run through the end of the bolt after it is installed you could use the # 131D.

  • Can Cradles on Curt Premium 5 Bike Rack Be Adjusted to Create More Bike Spacing
    Yes, the cradles for the Curt Premium 5 Bike Rack # C18065 can be adjusted along the support bars to create more space between the bikes when you aren't loading up 5 bikes. It does take quite a bit of effort to slide them along the bars (which prevents it from happening during travel) but they can be moved. Just be sure you still load the heaviest bike closest to the rear of the vehicle. I have attached a short video demonstration on this rack that you can check out as well.

  • Bike Rack for a 2005 GMC Yukon that is Sturdy, Tilts, and is Easy to Use
    We have lots of 4-bike racks that are sturdy and easy to use. For tilting it will depend on why you need it to tilt. If you need the bike rack to tilt WITH bikes loaded then there are certain racks we need to look at. If you want a rack that tilts WITHOUT the bikes loaded then we can look at other racks. For a 4-bike model that tilts, is sturdy, and is easy to use I recommend the Saris Glide EX # SA774. This rack tilts out instead of down and was designed to tilt with or without the...

  • 5-Bike Trailer Hitch Mount Bike Carrier and Compatible Cable and Hitch Locks
    You wouldn't be able to use the Swagman lock on the Curt bike carrier so what I recommend is to go with Hollywood Racks 5 bike carrier, # HR9200, and use the hitch and cable lock combination # HRLHPTC. I have included links to video reviews of both products for you. Bike rack manufacturers thread the bolts and shanks uniquely so that you can't use competitors products. There are some one-off exceptions but since they are not tested together it would not be a good idea to use them together.

  • How Far Does Curt 5-Bike Rack Extend from the Trailer Hitch Pin Hole
    I spoke with my contact at Curt who said that from the center of the hitch pin hole to the end of the arms is approximately 40 inches on Curt Premium 5 Bike Rack for 2" Hitches - Tilting Item # C18065 which is comparable to other 5 bike racks. If you were to use MaxxTow hitch extender # MT70070 though it will reduce the tongue weight capacity of the trailer hitch by 50 percent. Depending on what the tongue weight capacity of your hitch is the use of an adapter could cause the hitch to...

  • Will Frame Cradles of Curt Hanging Bike Racks Slide Around As Rack Travels
    The frame cradles of the Curt Premium 5 Bike Rack # C18065 fit tight enough to the arms of the rack that they would not move around while on the highway. We've sold quite a few of these bike racks and if the friction fit wasn't tight enough to prevent that we would have heard by now that it's an issue. Going with a 5 bike rack to allow you more space between racks is a great idea and with this rack you'd be able to do that without worrying about the cradles sliding together.

  • Is the Curt 5-Bike Rack Easy to Remove and Install
    The Curt Premium 5-Bike Rack # C18065 is not difficult to install and remove but it will take more time than other 5-bike racks. The reason for this is it uses a threaded anti-wobble hitch pin to lock inside your hitch that needs to be screwed in and unscrewed to install and remove the rack. If you do want to save some time and effort the better option is the Yakima RidgeBack 5-Bike Rack # Y02459, with the trade-off for the convenience the RidgeBack offers being a larger price tag. The...

  • Hanging Bike Rack Recommendation for Front Hitch of 2011 Dodge Ram
    We have 4 and 5 bike racks available that could easily fit a 2 inch front hitch. But it won't end up being the rack that would block the vision or headlights (and also airflow to the radiator). What will block those things would be the bikes. The weight of a bike rack plus 4 to 5 bikes is pretty heavy, you would want to ensure that the hitch you made is well reinforced. A hanging bike rack would have the least amount of rack in the way of the headlights/radiator/headlights. For a...

  • Recommended Replacement Strap For Curt Premium Bike Carrier
    Curt does not offer the straps for the bike rack but I do have a solution for you. I recommend the Replacement Strap, part # 853-2569. This strap measures 9-3/8 inches long and the holes measure 1 inch center to center. The only difference I could see was that the Curt strap has 9 holes in it and the # 853-2569 strap has 8, but it will work great on your bike rack.
