BikeWing T4 V-shaped hitch bike rack

The Vme BikeWing T4 hitch-mounted bike rack lets you carry up to 4 bikes by the wheels on V-shaped support arms. It has adjustable, anti-sway cradles that let you transport bikes of most sizes and frame styles. The construction is tough yet lightweight and the rack is easy to set up and store. The rear section of the T4 also detaches from the front section for simple conversion into 2 independent 2-bike racks.


V-Shaped Support Arms

BikeWing T4 V-shaped hitch bike rack

The BikeWing T4 features 4 removable support arms - or wings - that form 2 "V's". The V-racks distribute weight evenly, holding your bikes by the wheels - not the frames. This ensures level transport and it also eliminates the need for bike frame adapter bars normally required for mounting women's, children's, and alternative frame bikes on a hanging-style bike rack.


BikeWing T4 with removable, V-shaped support arms

The support arms can be removed if you need access to the rear cargo area of your vehicle or for storage. Simply pull the pins at the base of the rack to remove the arms. The pins are tethered to the base so you won't lose them.


BikeWing T4 with support arms detached

The base of the rack can be left in your hitch without interfering with your vehicle's rear hatch.


Adjustable Wheel Cradles and Sway Stops

BikeWing-2 with adjustable sway stops

The upper wheel cradles adjust independently so that your bikes hang level on the rack. With your bikes in place adjust the lower sway stops so that they are flush against the bottom of your tires. This Zero-G bike freeze system eliminates all bike motion and prevents any contact between your bikes frames and the rack. To secure your bikes to the rack pull the rubber strap on each cradle and sway stop over the wheel and hook the tightest hole around the peg at the end of the cradle.


BikeWing-2 cotter pin

To adjust each cradle for the proper spacing and height for your specific bikes simply remove the cotter pin, pull out the cradle, and replace it in the desired hole. To adjust each sway stop simply unscrew the knob, slide the sway stop to the desired position, then re-tighten the knob.


BikeWing-2 rubber straps and foam pads

The cradles and sway stops are coated with rubberized nylon to protect your bike wheel surfaces from scratches and scuffs. This coating also provides friction to help grip the wheels on your bikes.


BikeWing-2 frame-protecting foam pads

Foam pads on the support arms help keep your bikes stationary and rattle-free during transport. The pads slide up and down the support arms to accommodate different bike sizes and protect the paint from scratches.


2 Independent 2-Bike Carriers

BikeWing T4 2 independent racks

The rear section of the BikeWing detaches from the front section for conversion into 2 independent 2-bike racks. Remove the pin at the center of the base, remove the back half of the rack, then slide it into a 2" hitch and secure it with the pin.


BikeWIng-2 tilting

The 2-bike version also tilts down with your bikes loaded for access to your cargo area. Just remove the pin from the center of the base and insert it into the lower holes. Then lean the V-rack forward until it rests on the pin.


Compact, Folding Design

BikeWIng-2 adapter for 2 inch hitches

A removable pin lets you fold the V-shaped arms into the rack when you're not transporting bikes. You can also fold the rack up against your vehicle. This is great for parking in places where space is limited, such as a parking garage.


Anti-Rattle Connection to 2" Hitches

BikeWIng-2 adapter for 2 inch hitches

The rack installs into any 2" hitch. 2 NoMotion anti-wobble hitch pins help to reduce noise and movement of the rack in your hitch and at the junction where the rack separates. The pins thread into cylindrical anti-rattle devices already installed in the rack's shanks. You can also add padlocks with a 1/4" shackle (ML312D - sold separately) to each Silent Hitch Pin to secure the carrier to your vehicle.

Video Transcript for Lets Go Aero BikeWing T4 4 Bike Rack Review

Speaker 1: Today we're gonna be taking a look at the Lets Go Aero BikeWing T4 four-bike rack for two-inch hitches, part number B01458. The Lets Go Aero BikeWing T4 four-bike rack is an inexpensive choice that can carry up to four bikes at the rear of your vehicle or your RV, motor home, or fifth-wheel, and it can split up into two separate bike racks as well. So you can have two individual two-bike racks. And with the one closest to the vehicle here, this can actually tilt away when it's in its two-bike form. It can carry a wide variety of bikes like you see here, primarily because it grips it by the tires, which also eliminates the need for any bike adapter parts as well.The mounts for the wheels are all adjustable. For the hooks that hold the top part of the tire in place, you pull the pin on the side here and you can adjust it accordingly to fit whatever bike you're gonna be hauling.

Also, there is this nice rubberized nylon coating here, and that's gonna help protect the frame of your tire once it's being held into place. And of course, we have these straps here.At the base we have these pegs with these turn knobs here that can be adjusted up and down as needed for your tires as well. To help protect the frame we have these pads here that can be adjusted up and down as necessary also. So if your bike we're to make contact, it won't get damaged.With all four bikes, it has a carrying capacity of 160 pounds, so that's roughly about 40 pounds per bike. So with the mountain bike, the alternate frame bike, the road bike, and the kids' bike, it should work fine.

It does have a fat tire adapter kit as well, part number BMP038.And while this doesn't come with any locks per se for either the bikes or the bike rack itself, there are options on etrailer.com that you can find, such as cable locks for the bikes here, or there's a hitch style lock from Lets Go Aero that you can find on etrailer.com as well.Now we're gonna show you how to separate them. To do that we're gonna move this anti-rattle bolt towards the center here. We'll pull the pin, then take our 15/16 socket and loosen up the other side. And we just simply pull it out of the shank there. I'll set this off to the side for now.

And then we'll come to the inside here and remove our anti-rattle bolt. Grab it, and now if you want to use the other half we just pulled out as a bike rack itself, you need to install this on the inside there.When split up into two separate bike racks, the second bike rack pretty much installs exactly the same way as the other in that you simply put it into the hitch and tighten it down with the anti-rattle bolt.Now, when reviewing customer comments and questions about this bike rack, one comment that came up is that it was too close to their RV and would actually make contact should it be jostled back and forth. There's a couple solutions to this problem. First off, you have to take a look at your hitch on your RV. Now, if it comes with a factory-installed hitch, it may sit too far underneath and behind the bumper, to where this would make contact with that.

Try out a hitch extender, perhaps, to work it out with this bike rack, although the weight capacities may be affected by that.Now, we mentioned earlier how this can tilt away from the vehicle. And a reminder, it has to be in this two-bike configuration in order to do this. This is the portion that we left inside the vehicle. So what we're gonna do is remove the pin at the base here and replace it into this area here. It's important to remember to hold onto the bikes themselves while you're doing this, 'cause you don't want it falling down on you while this is happening. So we'll pull the pin, bring it down to its other section here. All right, then we can let the bike rack come down gently. It's gonna want to come crashing down. And now we have full access to our rear hatch to get what we need.We've went ahead and removed the rest of the bikes so you can see what the bike rack looks like with nothing installed on it. Now, right now it's gonna be what we call in the loading position, meaning it's ready to have the bikes installed. And so it can also fold down flat so we can gain rear hatch access when no bikes are installed. Remove the pin, and then begin to fold it down. I'll reinsert the pin at the base here and clip it back up. There we go. And with it folded flat, now we have full hatch access to get what we need. Also, when it's flat like this we can fold it up against the vehicle for those close-quarters situations such as parking or putting it in your garage. Simply pull the pin at the base here and push it up.In some cases it may make contact with the vehicle. However, with our arms here we can adjust these up to make sure that that doesn't happen. So now it doesn't make contact. Reinsert the pin, now we're ready to go.When comparing this with other products, one that comes up is gonna be the Reese Q-Slot Platform-Style two bike and four bike rack, part number PS63138. They can both separate into two-bike racks each, and the biggest differences between these two, the weight capacity for the BikeWing's gonna be a little bit greater at 160 pounds. But with four bikes, the Q-slot is rated only for 140 pounds.Now, it may be a little bit easier to load up the bikes for the Q-Slot, as it's the traditional platform style. However, in some cases, since it grips it by the frame, you may need a bike adapter bar. With the BikeWing, that eliminates that need.How this attaches to the hitch, we're gonna have another anti-rattle bolt at the base. Once that's tightened down we'll take out the shake and play in the shank and make for a smoother ride. Now, before we start loading up our bikes, you want to make sure that they're at least in a decent position to receive all of them. And remember that you can adjust all of these if need be. We'll first grab our mountain bike, because you want to put the heaviest bike closest to the vehicle and work your way back to that.And to make this a little bit easier on us, we're actually gonna remove our arms out on the end here, just so they're not in the way. Now, with the arms removed, it's gonna make getting to our bike rack just a little bit easier. Because with this, you do have to be a little careful. Take our strap, run it through, and tighten that sucker down. Also at this point, that's when we would make any adjustments with our padding here to make sure that if our bike does make contact, it at least is gonna have some padding to protect it.Now with our mountain bike installed, we can repeat this process for our other three bikes. Now that we have all four bikes installed on our vehicle, now we're ready to take it out on our test course and show you how it looks. First we'll take it onto our slalom course, and this will show you the side-to-side action, such as making turns or evasive maneuvers. Finally, we're at the solid speed bumps, which simulates going into your driveway or parking lots.And there you have it for the Lets Go Aero BikeWing T4 four-bike rack, part number B01458.

**I have not actually used the rack yet** That being said, I am pretty impressed with the build quality and options I have with this rack. I am an avid mountain biker and spent $600+ on my current hitch mounted Thule T2 with the extension to carry 2 additional bikes. That rack is extremely heavy, does fold up, and works very well, however it is not rated for behind RV/Travel Trailer use, so I had to find something else. The BikeWing T4 is much lighter than my Thule, it is more versatile since you can remove the wings, move the pegs for the tires, fold it up, angle it down, use it as a 2 bike rack, 4 bike rack, or even 2 separate 2 bike racks. Pretty cool! My biggest issue was that the wings hit the spare tire when folding it up, so in order to fold up the rack when its not in use, I have to remove the wings on the side of the spare tire. That is no fault of Lets Go Aero though. I did install my 29er on it to see how easy it would be and it was pretty easy. It took roughly the same time maybe a few second longer than my Thule takes. Overall I am extremely impressed with this rack to the point I am considering selling my Thule and using this on my camper or with my truck when not towing the camper. 551052

We've had this over a year now, and the main purpose for purchasing this was to use it on the back of our fifth wheel camper. We have been happy with it so far for various reasons. 1 - I like how you can use the 2 or 4 bike configuration depending on how many bikes you need to take along. 2 - It holds the bikes very securely. There are 2 rubber straps and 2 bars per wheel of the bike so there is very little movement and holds the frame of the bikes very still. We have loaded bikes with minimal clearance between parts, and there was no evidence of them touching after hundreds of miles. You also won't get the spinning wheels as you go down the road as with the hanging racks. 3 - It is RV rated. There are not a ton of options out there that are rated for going on the back of an RV. From our experience it has earned that. 4 - It is highly adjustable. It takes a little effort to get it adjusted properly so everything fits nicely, but it at least can adjust to fit our bikes. It can even adjust down to fit my 5 year old daughters bike with training wheels. The only thing I would add to this bike rack is an easier way to secure/lock our bikes. At this point we've been just locking our bikes together, figuring it would make it super difficult to remove all the bikes at once and get away without being noticed, a deterrent to keep the honest honest. A built in way to lock it all to the frame would be a nice addition. We would definitely purchase this bike rack again. It is price competitive with the "big names" and holds our bikes very securely. 547694

After a year using the BikeWing hitch rack on our small motorhome on many trips, and also on our Jeep Cherokee, we're very satisfied. Now we're starting to use it on our motorhome with a Roadmaster spare tire carrier, and it's still working well (see photo). The flexibility to use the full two wing configuration or a single wing, plus ability to fold up (and easily remove the wings if desired) when not carrying bikes has all come in very handy. With our vehicles, we are not able to use the furthest inside rack due to lack of clearance to the vehicle, but that's never been a problem since we've only been carrying two bikes, with the option for a third if needed. The only downside to this rack for us (thus 4 stars instead of 5) is that it takes a little more effort to load/unload bikes than do the wheel-tray type racks. But the RV capability, good value and overall flexibility make up for that for us. One unexpected benefit of this rack for us is that it makes a great garage centerline indicator when viewed with our motorhome rear camera while backing into our RV garage (which has a centerline stripe on the floor). 512861

This bike rack works great. I used this on the back of my fifth wheel last weekend to haul two mountain bikes. Have not used the extended section to haul 4 at the same time, and I probably won't put all 4 on the back of my camper due to concerns of putting that much weight and sway at the tail end. That being said, I like the fact this rack gives me the option, which I likely will put all 4 bikes on the truck or SUV. The wheel mounts hold the bike very secure and the design gives you dozens of possible adjustment points to fit different size bikes. Do plan on spending an hour or so assembling the unit when you first receive it. And plan some time for adjustments the first time you set up your bikes. Because I have several different sized bikes (small kid, small adult, large adult), I can see that I'll likely leave the wheel mount cradles in the locations I have them and develop a routine placement for which bike goes in which location. If you're always hauling the same 4 bikes, that shouldn't be too much of a problem. The anti-rattle hitch pin works well. The trade-off, however, is that it adds the necessity of a wrench and a few extra minutes to un-mount the rack from your vehicle. Not a big deal, but certainly not as convenient as pulling a pin from a standard hitch pin. 424380

Rack was approved for RV use form the manufacturer. Assembled and installed but the handlebars ends were only 2 inches form the back of the RV. (RV back is flat, receiver did extend behind the back by about 3 inches). Found the rack had considerable movement. I could lift the rack up and down causing the handle bars to move from to back (with considerable up and down movement) by more than 10 inches. This would have caused the handlebar ends to strike the RV. I suppose all the pivot points in the rack to allow it to fold introduced too much "slop" in the rack that allowed all the movement. Very disappointed with what I had hooped was a RV approved rack that also folded out of the way. Thanks etrailer for an (almost) painless return process. 417155

We purchased this bike rack to use with our class b motorhome. The bikes ride very securely once loaded. The ease of use is not great for our cruiser style bikes. It is difficult to position these bikes so they don't rub. 569097

I haven't actually used this product yet but its built well and was easy to assemble. My bikes were easy to put on this rack. It was one that was approved to be used with an RV and it will easily hold my 4 bikes. I like the fact that I can use half the rack and only carry two if I want. There was a strap missing and I called etrailer and had the strap within two days. Great customer service !! 559273

The hitch took about 40 minutes to to assemble and install. Directions are OK but better pictures would help. My daughter took three bikes on it and said it worked good. You just have to be careful with the ground clearance as it does stick out quite a ways. Over all it can haul a lot of different frame sizes and is good for a family. 544287

Review from a similar Lets Go Aero BikeWing in Hitch Bike Racks


In trying to find a bike rack for my 2010 Prius this summer, I spent a fair amount of time considering a variety of configurations, eventually coming closest to purchasing the kind where the tires rest in basket-like catches (for lack of a better description) near the ground. I also considered a number of models where the bikes hang down, for the most part, from some kind of horizontal bar or bars jutting out, usually higher up, from a thicker vertical bar. There's a confusing array of possible configurations there, but many are suited to horizontal (or nearly so) frame parts on the bikes. You have to think about your bikes. I also spent some time seeing if there was any way to carry three bikes (there are plenty with three or greater capacity). But that was a bit of wasted effort because within the weight limit of the Curt hitch I first had installed some two years ago (I forget if it's 70 or maybe even 100 pounds, but you have to consider not only weight but potential "moment"--moving weight), that wasn't going to happen. No hitch will exceed roughly that range on a Prius. I think it's a 1.25" hitch. And you also have to consider ground clearance. I also spent time reading lengthy customer reviews, mostly on other sites such as Amazon, concerned about tales of swaying or rattling at the hitch connection point with certain rigs. Sometimes it seemed that more elaborate set-ups had more of those complaints ... or at least dialogue. But for the most part, more expensive ones had more anti-rattle stuff. Then I found this rack. It's quite lightweight--meaning more usable weight capacity for the bikes and less used by the rack, itself--still strong, couldn't be more simple (elegant really) in assembly, and provides great options for mounting different bike configurations. (It's been several months, but I think this site also was helpful because I could search in one way or another by my car model). Mounting options were important because my wife's bike is unusual--it has a thick bar that slopes very steeply down from near the handlebars, almost down to the pedals--not the typical thinner, nearly horizontal bar even on a woman's bike. So it was critical I had connection options through the wheels, etc. After a short local trial run--with only one bike for 3 miles--in August 2015, we took two bikes, each at about 35 lbs, from DC to southern Maine and back. And not only that, but we took a meandering course home including a day in New York City. For security, I put two solid U-locks (Cryptonite or whatever) through the bikes and put the car in pretty nice public neighbourhoods, mostly in daytime. Yes, without more, someone eventually could figure out to remove the whole assembly, bikes and all. But you're at least creating a deterrent. All in all, the bikes were on the rack in most road conditions for at least 1,300 miles. At one point, I really jammed on my brakes for some animals in the middle of the night (missed them) No upset to the bikes or rack. There was never any vibration or rattling or swaying. I didn't even notice any real reduction in fuel economy--averaged nearly the advertised 50 mpg for most of the trip and much was in the fast lane. I did use the extra securing rubber bands--two, I believe--that come with the kit. I ended up *not* using the larger fabric adjustable strap to wrap around the bikes and/or secure them to the car. I separately tied the rubber bands to something with twine so that if they sprang free, I wouldn't lose them in the road. They always stayed secured. What else did I learn? First, I bought the right socket wrench attachment (fortunately, already had the wrench) for, I think, less than $10, maybe even closer to $6. I didn't get a perfect fit but it was close enough. And it was highly worth it for those last few turns tightening and, later, loosening the special threaded bolt. That's all I needed to snugly secure the rack at the hitch mount. You really *don't* want to be trying with a regular (sometimes flimsy) wrench, let alone bare fingers, to apply pressure to that awkward to reach nut. With the right tool, it will take 30 seconds both to attach and unattach the main part of rack (to which you then attach the two arms) to the hitch. Another thing. You're probably going to get some grease on your hands even under the best of circumstances. Heck, you're handling--sometimes manhandling--greased, muddy, etc. machinery. I keep an orange-based nontoxic hand gel (it was like $4) and a semi-clean rag around. It's with the rack stuff. After a very simple wipe-off of my hands (it also works on clothes), I can throw it back in the car and start driving. What else? Really experiment with bike orientations and position of the four hooks--two per bike. Small changes and *remembering what worked better* can make all the difference between a frustrated jamming of pedals to wheels to frames, etc,.--a seemingly unbalanced, unwieldy, unsatisfactory jamming that, to top it off, gets grease on you and causes unwelcome contact between surfaces--versus things fitting elegantly and *never even coming near* your back bumper, trunk, etc. In the learning process, I didn't get a single abrasion on the car. But I did manage to split the strong plastic/synthetic liner of one of the hooks (it still works just fine). What else? Remember that, at least with a Prius or similar, once one or both bikes are on, you probably will not be able to usably lift the hatchback. So plan accordingly. I got to the rear storage area when I forgot something, etc., by flipping down the back seat(s). Well. That's about all I can think of. 224727

Review from a similar Lets Go Aero BikeWing in Hitch Bike Racks


The Let's Go Aero VME-V2 is almost -almost -exactly as advertised. It assembled easily, installs easily, and sturdily carries a heavier than normal commuter cruising bike over speed bumps at least three times as high and four times as wide as those shown in the excellent videos developed by etrailer.com detailing it's assembly and reviewing it's ability to transport bikes. However, there are three problems with the VME-V2 bicycle carrier. First, when using the slots at the end of the V-wing arms to insert the bicycle-carrying hooks, the plastic caps won't fully seat in the open end of the arm. I solved that problem by using a circular file to create a semi-circular notch in the cap that fits across the hook inserted through the arm, and the arm then fits flush in the opening. Second, when the bike-carrying hooks are installed on both the side facing the car as well as the side facing away from the car, which is the configuration required to transport two bikes, the hatch on my 2016 Mazda CX-5 cannot clear the car-facing hooks to be opened. The solution is simple: simply reverse the hooks and insert them lower on the V-wing arm. The hatch can then clear the installed bike rack by about an inch and access to the rear storage area is available. The third problem is a bit more serious. When carrying two bikes, one would, logically, hang the first on the hooks facing the rear if the car, then load the second on the hooks facing away from the vehicle. However, with a full-size adult commuter cruiser that weighs about 43#, it becomes very difficult to hang on the hooks without banging into the back of the car and bumper, and possibly -perhaps even more probably than not -damaging the paint and finish. I couldn't hang the bike by myself in three tries without banging the handlebars and/or the pedals on the car. I finally got it on with my wife's assistance: with me having hung the rear wheel on the hoom, and supporting the front of the bike, my wife inserted the previously unclipped hook into the V-wing arm and clipped it in place and I lowered the bike onto the book It was a bit of a struggle that would be eliminated by lengthening (and dtrengthening) the arm that is inserted into the hitch and supports the V-wing arms perhaps 3-5", providing more clearance and easier access. I hope this helps those considering the VME-V2, and to guide the manufacturer into developing an improved product. ScupperFrank Miami, FL 2016 Mazda CX-5 CUV September 2016 295997

A fabulous bike carrier. Its couple of flaws are easily fixed with small outlays: 1. As is out-of-the-box the VME-V2 doesn't lock your bike to your car (or otherwise discourage theft). Fix this by purchasing the Deadbolt 10' Long Cable Lock for $$ on this site. With this style of lock you can thread the thin locking cable end through the safety chain holes that should be on either side of your hitch receiver, and then lock the cable though the frames and wheels of your bikes. Additional bonus: it will push your purchase price just over $$, getting you free shipping. (No, I don't work for etrailer.com) 2. On my car, the VME-V2 only carries one bike -- it sits too close to the rear of my Subaru to accommodate an "inside" carry. I would think this would be a common problem, as there appears to be no standard (or widely followed practice) as to how far ones hitch receiver should be recessed. Mine is 5" back from the rear bumper ... enough to allow a minor collision (when no hitch is in place) without major frame damage. Many receivers are mounted flush with the bumper (somewhat defeating the purpose of a 5mph bumper) those folks can carry two bikes. Again about $$ solved this problem -- I purchased an 8" receiver extender (this time from [retailer]). Alas there is a lot of rattle and shake when using the extender, so I use it only when carrying two bikes. In single bike mode (no extender) I really like this carrier. In crowded city driving my bike stays close and secure, is easily hung or removed, and access to the tailgate is as simple as removing the bike and pulling 2 pins; maybe 10 seconds. With bike attached I can park anywhere, including my garage. The carrier is light weight, and when broken down for storage is very compact. 338091

I purchased this hitch mounted bike rack to fit behind an R Pod camper as well as to the hitch receiver of my truck. Before ordering, my questions were promptly answered. The bike rack was shipped to me within a week. Hats off to the support and shipping department personnel. The rack was simple to install on the camper's receiver. Adjusting the wheel supports for each bike took some trial and error, but once adjusted, the bikes fit very well on the rack. Once secured with the supplied bungee cords, the bikes are solid on the rack, without worry of them bouncing or coming loose. The anti-rattle bolt is a nice feature - it secures the rack to the camper very rigidly. I recently came back from a camping trip and was pleased with the rack's performance. You can have confidence knowing that your bikes won't be bouncing off the rack or dragging or the ground when driving in and out of parking lots. One slight inconvenience that I encountered was the handlebar width of the bike that is on the inside of the rack, closest to the camper. The handlebars on my mountain bike are wide and touched the back of the camper. I decided to turn the handlebars 90 degrees, so that they wouldn't contact the camper when in tow. Once arrived at destination, with an Allen key, I adjust the handlebars back to riding position. Overall, I'm very impressed with this bike rack. This is the third or fourth time that I order from e-trailer and cannot say enough about how pleasant they are to deal with. I would definitely recommend this rack and e-trailer. 283531

Review from a similar Lets Go Aero BikeWing in Hitch Bike Racks


Customer service from etrailer was outstanding. The original bike carrier I order was similar to this one but was on back order from the manufacturer. I received a call from Carla right away letting me know it was on back order but there were some other carriers that she thought would fit my needs. I ended up purchasing the Aero VeeMe and am very pleased with it. Shipping was extremely quick. The product is lightweight and easy to assemble. The bike is suspended by the tires. Its perfect for my women's mountain bike since it is very adjustable and it eliminates the straight bar attachment needed with a standard bike rack. I was able to assemble the rack, put it on my Jeep Wrangler, make adjustments and get my bike loaded without any assistance. The instructions even give suggestions on how to best secure the bike with the bungie cords. This is an excellent product especially for the price. Note that if you have a spare tire on the back of your vehicle, you may not be able to carry 2 bikes. On my Jeep Wrangler, I can only carry one bike because there is not enough clearance between the carrier and my spare tire for the second bike. Its not an issue for me since I only transport my bike but it is something to consider if you are need to transport more than one. In addition, I cannot open the back tailgate when I have the carrier attached. Again its not an issue for me but something to keep in mind. 180033

Review from a similar Lets Go Aero BikeWing in Hitch Bike Racks


I was very pleasantly surprised by how well this rack works. I have a high-end mountain bike with an unconventional frame and 29" wheels, meaning it has always been either too big or too awkward for a traditional bike rack. On the off chance that I did find a rack that could support it, the bike's matte-finish would get scratched from a vertical clamp arm or some similar support. This rack has (as far as I can tell) solved all those problems. The way it allows the bike to hang from its wheels instead of its frame is a great idea (just make sure you use the included pads and bungee straps to keep your bikes from swaying, otherwise the movement could warp your rims). Plus, as an added bonus, it was also the most affordable rack I've found. My only concern is that it doesn't stick out very far from the tailgate of my truck (09 Tacoma with after-market hitch receiver) . I can put a bike on the backside and finagle the bungees in such a way so that no part of the bike rubs against the tailgate but it's difficult to get the bike on and off without scratching anything. I wouldn't say that's a flaw of the rack per se, just something to be aware of (a hitch extender would probably be a good idea if you plan on carrying two large bikes). Overall, I'm very please with this product and would highly recommend it. I wish I'd found it sooner - would've saved me a lot of headache. 337823

So happy Mike H. at etrailer recommended this bike rack! We tow a fifth wheel with our 2017 Ford Super Duty 250, 4 wheel drive, and this bike rack makes it possible to bring our bikes with us. We had tried a different rack to use behind the RV, against the manufacturers warning, bad decision on our part!! The Let's Go Aero Bike Wing-2 is everything they said it is. Easy to assemble, lightweight and securely holds our bikes mated with the Draw-Tite front mount hitch, also provided by etrailer. Ground clearance to tire, 15". Clearance between bumper to inner mounted bike pedal, 3+ " no worry of contact between the two! Overall distance from bumper to outer bike handlebar, 30". Visibility while driving with bikes attached, no problem!! Completely satisfied with this product and etrailer. 436840

Review from a similar Lets Go Aero BikeWing in Hitch Bike Racks


So far, this rack seems great. It was easy to put together and get connected to my car. I suggest getting small padlocks to secure all of the mount points and the hitch bolt. I like that it is very lightweight and takes about 30 seconds to load my bike. I have only put one bike on it so far so I can't comment on how easy it is to mount two bikes. I think it would pretty easy after the initial set up of the tire mount points. I am including a picture of my biggest bike on this rack. My BMC Trailfox is a 6 inch travel 29er MTB with 2.3 tires. The fork is a Fox 34. It fits just fine. A Fox 36 would probably be okay as well. I think a fat bike or a plus bike would not fit as the fork might be too wide for the mounting points. I have owned a Thule T2 Classic in the past. The T2 is slightly faster to mount a bike. That is the only real advantage I see. However, I find the bit of sway to be similar between both bike racks. The Thule weighs like 40 pounds. It was a pain to take off my old jeep. This one weighs 12 and disassembles easily. The Thule cost me $280. This one cost me less than half. I think this is a great deal and a very good rack. Overall, I am very happy with it. 406296

I needed a rack which could fit a large, irregular-shaped 29" mountain bike. This one fits the bill perfectly. Bike sits evenly and with plenty of clearance from the ground. Seems sturdy and well-made. Without a bike loaded, access to the trunk is wide open and the tilting ability of some other hitch-mounted racks is a non-factor. It also doesn't hurt that this rack looks good. 180202

The review isn't for the product itself, which may be fine, but for the fraudulent and deceptive advertising that Let's Go Aero insists is OK. They say their rack is 12 pounds. Says that on their box, says it on their site, says it on ETRAILER (which takes the info the company gives them). That was important to me because I have a back injury and will need to assemble before I attach to the car because of parking conditions. When I got the package I called LGA to see if they'd sent the wrong rack, because this rack assembled weighs 18 pounds. "Marty" at LGA provided the absolute worst customer service I have ever experienced. He tried to tell me that "each part" weighs less than 12 pounds. Excuse me, but that is not "a rack." He had no excuses, no apologies, and was rude. I told him I expect to file complaints for deceptive and fraudulent advertising. He said "I wish I had so much time during my day" and hung up on me. I can't imagine if you had a problem with the actual rack and had to deal with that company. Leeza at etrailer was great, by contrast, offering to help me find another HONESTLY lightweight rack. I will return this rack and buy another by a company that doesn't try to defraud customers. 410611

This bike rack has an outstanding design--it is light, stable and noise-free, and I recommend it. Customer service at this site is also excellent. The first rack I received had a problem, but Wayne H. fixed it promptly and with zero hassles. The only issues I've seen are the powder coat on the base seems to chip easily since both units I received had chips (in all fairness, this seems common when dealing with hitch accessories), and the rubber coating is splitting on one of the tire support hooks after only one use. But considering price and performance, this rack is just what I wanted. Please note that the Python cable lock recommended for this rack in the Q & A section WILL NOT fit through the lock holes in the base--the holes are too small and would need to be drilled out to work as intended. I just used a cable lock I already had to secure the bikes, then ran the Python lock through the chain ring on my truck receiver, but I wouldn't have purchased the Python lock if I would have known this because my second bike lock could have done this just as well. 225114

A really nice bike rack. Easy to use. Well balanced. I'm using this in the front hitch of my pick up truck. I tow a camper but use the camper's rear hitch for a Curt carrier and etrailer waterproof bag. Stays in place up front with no issues on my last camping trip. I use straps as a back up and purchased these from etrailer too. I decided to try this after reading another review from an RV owner who also mounted the rack up front. 300464

I bought this to pair with a Bike Bunk so that we can take our bikes with us on vacation when towing a pair of jet skis. The design of this rack allows me to mount the bikes above the trailer storage box. It's also convenient that it has both the 1 1/4" and 2" hitch support, as we can stick it on the back of our little Scion xD or in the hitch of my Chevy Silverado with the camper shell on. Both of the bikes I mounted on it when testing were approximately the same length, so it took some fiddling around with the locations of the support pegs to actually support both bikes from the bottom as well as the top. It's probably not the rack's fault that our bikes are almost exactly the same wheelbase, but it still was kind of annoying having to take the bikes off and on multiple times to figure out where each mount needed to be. 512526

I have a SUN Streamway and this rack is perfect for its less conventional lines. I am a 64 yo gal and I can easily lift my bike on to it. The rubber pads are perfect to keep the finish on the bike protected. I can also easily remove or reload the rack on to my hitch. Detractions: hate that one MUST get your lock mechanism to secure to the hitch to the car through you, because you made sure no one else's will work. Booo. Tolerances for hitch fit seem too loose leaving room for wiggle (imo). Suggestion: the rubber pads on my the mounting hangers should be international orange, not black. The rubber elastics that cinch the wheel onto the hanger should also be international orange. Too many distracted drivers, no one used to a bike rack like this. Any additional visibility would be a help to keep my bike most visible. Seems sturdy. I double lock front and back chassis and wheels of my bike because of those who don't want to work for what they get. Will be glad when hitch lock arrives shortly. 233341

The first box I received had been opened while in transit and the unit looked like it had been used. I contacted etrailer and they sent me a new unit right away and a UPS label to return the other. Without question. Now that's good customer service! The new one came and I was able to assemble it easily following the provided directions. Since it comes in 3 parts, it is very easy for me to put in the hitch on my car and then add the 2 'arms' one at a time. Being almost 60 and female, I was concerned about the weight of some of the other racks I considered purchasing. This one is easy to install and use! I did have to work with the adjustments of the brackets on the arms to get them just right for my bike, but once done, I haven't had to touch them again. I have only taken the bike loaded on the rack for short drives, but I feel comfortable enough to go longer distances, too. I would highly recommend this bike rack and etrailer! 551592

This bike rack is surprisingly lightweight and sturdy. I have yet to test the durability of the plastic components, but so far it has attached 2 road bikes securely. It did take some time to get the pins situated for 2 road bikes so definitely set aside some time to do this before using. The 2 best things about this rack are the portability and the fact that it can still fold out of the way for the rear hatch with bikes attached. Those were a couple of key criteria for me and this works well. We are able to carry the rack broken down easily in the back of a Subaru forester and assemble whenever needed. The downsides would be the number of pins to insert and adjust, the need to screw in the hitch mount, and also the potential durability issue for the plastic components and tightening wings. Overall I am pleased with the rack and would recommend to others with similar needs. 549899

I'm giving this bike rack an excellent review but I will stipulate that I haven't actually used it yet. Ordering the rack was easy. I opted for standard shipping time and rate but received an email shortly after ordering that, free of charge, it was upgraded to 3 day shipping. Indeed in arrived much sooner than I had originally indicated. After removing it from the box, it was easy and intuitive to assemble though I had watched the videos on the website previously. It is quite light but seems strong. It was easy to put the rack on the back of our R-Pod camper. It was easy to put my bike on the rack on the side closest to the camper. The second bike on the side away from the camper was even easier. Seems quite secure. We haven't actually transported our bikes on the rack yet, so that part of the review remains to be seen. I can see no reason why it won't be just fine. 337836

This has been the best bike rack I have tried thus far. I have a girls Townie bike and I really like that I do not have to add a crossbar to use this rack. Also It is VERY EASY for me to get my bike up and onto the rack. I am able to lift one end at a time and seat it on the hook. This allows me to not have to pick the entire bike up all at once to mount it, which is great because the older I get the harder it gets to pick the bike up. It rides more stable than any other rack I have tried. Very little movement at all. I have it mounted to a Ford F150. It has ample padding to protect your bike as well. It is an extremely good value for the money. It was easy to install less than 10 min. Also the bars that the bike rests on detach and can be stowed away very easily. I leave the mount attached, I do have a hitch lock on it. I would gladly recommend this rack to friends. 209200

The rack fit fine on my 2011 Toyota Tacoma. The rack is a little short on my 2008 Jeep Patriot. I bought the rack primarily for my Winnebago motorhome knowing it would be too short (from the hitch to the rack). I got the rack and put a bike on the inside mount then took a measurement. I need an 8" extension. If your hitch is not flush with the bumper and is recessed underneath, you will probably need and extension. Since I don't need a high quality extension (the weight of 2 bikes is not much) I will get one from [retailer] for about $20. Once the rack was installed on my Tacoma it barely moved at all with both bikes on it. the quality and finish is very good. etrailer had the lowest price. Shipping to Texas took 3 business days. 342515

2010 Ford Fusion + Hidden Hitch 1 1/4" + VeeMee V2 = too close to trunk Not impossible but to use; but, we're removing the pedal of the inside bike nearest the trunk. Scratched it up during mounting or removing the bike otherwise. Wish it had 2-4" more inches clearance. Also, we bike camp and with a rack on the bike, the inside bike is best mounted by: 1) hooking the front wheel on it's arm 2) removing the rear horizontal carry arm (the part the rim rests on) 3) positioning the rear wheal and then replacing the carry arm and pinning Easy enough with the little clip pin retainer and a second set of hands. Overall a very good rack, great service from e-Trailer, just not the best fit with the Fusion. Tom 196836

I just installed the bike rack yesterday. Works great. I did call and speak with the customer service center at LetsGoAero as the "No-Motion" pin/bolt that holds the rack onto the receiver was a bit stiff. They immediately said they would ship me a replacement. I also learned that when screwing the pin or bold, into a 1 1/4 inch receiver, you must install it from the passenger side towards the drivers side, as there appears to be a "stop" that prevents you from tightening the pin if you put the pin/bolt in from the opposite direction. Love the bike rack. Fits on both my R-Pod Travel Trailer and my Jeep Grand Cherokee! The long Shank makes all the difference, as I needed the clearance distance for the travel trailer. 571916

Very happy with the quality and ease of use of my new bike rack. My wife and I can easily transport our Trek 7100 hybrids on the back of our Dodge Journey. In fact when transporting only one bike, the rear hatch can be opened with the one bike on the rack! Our vehicle has a small in floor storage compartment at the rear. The entire rack easily stores there, so that is where it stays when not in use. Ground clearance is not an issue and the overall quality is great. Our bikes ride with virtually no shaking. A minor problem with one of the hooks was quickly resolved by Rebecca at etrailer and the manufacturer promptly sent a replacement hook. At twice this price point you will be hard pressed to find a unit this nice. 203013

Put this on the front of our RV. I like that the two V bars come out and can be stowed in very little space. The bottom part stays on our motorhome full time. The safety pin hole for the screw-in hitch pin is large enough for some padlocks so I just locked it to prevent opportunistic thieves (who might have a 3/4 inch wrench in their pockets?!) I rated this a 4 because it takes some muscle, and high lifting in our case (front of an RV), to lift the inside bike into place so if you are upper-body strength challenged or have short arms this may not be the bike carrier for you. I like that the bikes hang by the wheels since my wife's bike has a lower and angled top tube. 224195

Lets Go Aero Vme V2 bike carrier and fat tire adapter - products work as described, I have an SE Fat Ripper that goes on the carrier without any issues and no damage to the bike after hauling it down the freeway multiple times, not even a mark on the paint where it is pulled against the arms (nice foam pads already installed on the arms) and nothing on the rims where it rests on the pegs. The product does have some wobble at the receiver, but it has not been an issue - actually the way the pin goes into the receiver is more of a bolt that can be tightened up with a safety pin for added security. For the price you won't find a better product I highly recommend them. 402627

Compact, easy to install, easy to mount bike. I bought a 3/4" ratchet socket wrench to install the carrier onto the hitch and that made it super easy. I only carry one bike so can't vouch for how this carrier works for two. It's very easy to set the bike onto the supports and secure it, and the extra bungies for additional tie-downs keep the bike steady with little to no wobble while driving. The thing I like best about this rack is how easy it is to remove the two arms and how little space they take up in storage. They're lightweight and small enough that you can dismantle them (and the hitch attachment) and put everything inside your car while you're out riding. 333280

Review from a similar Lets Go Aero BikeWing in Hitch Bike Racks


Really like this bike rack... I am using it on the front of my travel trailer with the Stromberg Carlson bike rack carrier. It is really solid, doesn't move at all when we are driving. Easy to put the bikes on even though they are a little bit high up ... just feel it is very secure. We had to play around with thr positioning of the bikes a bit so the wheels didn't hit the truck when we turn, but it was easy to figure out with a little adjustment. Very happy 445980

The VME-V2 bike rack is much sturdier than i even expected! I put it on my 2009 Prius and my husband and i went for a bike ride. The bikes barely moved! Very easy to use! as i bought it to use during the day when my husbands at work. 186399

Review from a similar Lets Go Aero BikeWing in Hitch Bike Racks


I recently bought a RV and needed a bike rack in 2 weeks for our first trip. I found the VME-V2 online very easily. Description sounded like just what I needed for a reasonable price. Checkout was a breeze. Received product in great time. Installed bike rack and mounted bikes with minimal trouble and all seems secure. We'll see how well it holds up travelling this coming weekend! The video at website was very helpful w/ installation and use. What sold me was how easy I can get it out of my way at campsite for access to storage compartment. Ladder mounted bike racks were interesting but couldn't handle the weight of my bikes. 365479

Review from a similar Lets Go Aero BikeWing in Hitch Bike Racks


While I had to return this bike rack it was NOT because of any weakness or dissatisfaction with the rack. I have a cruiser bike and this type bike rack does not work with a cruiser bike. It's construction, design and material appears to be of very high quality. I called customer service and immediately got to speak with a "human being" - Ian. Without hesitation he issued me a RMA in order to return the VME-V2 and assisted me in selecting a bike rack to fit my type of bicycle. I can't say enough about the quality of the products sold by etrailer and can't say enough about the customer support you can expect. Stan. 339923

Review from a similar Lets Go Aero BikeWing in Hitch Bike Racks


I was impressed with the shipping box that it came in. Very strong and no dings from UPS either... When I opened the box I was even more impressed of what I saw! Very nicely made and Very easy to install, you don't even need to read the instructions. In fact, it was faster to install this bike rack than it did to open the box. My advice is if your thinking of getting this you better hurry before the price goes up! 189250

Review from a similar Lets Go Aero BikeWing in Hitch Bike Racks


We have used this product for one continuous year on our trip with the travel trailer. It holds two bicycles. We chose this after considerable research because it was stated it could be used behind a travel trailer, attached to the rear hitch receiver. I did move the spare tire into the truck bed so as to keep the weight on the rear hitch to about 80 pounds (the bike wing plus the two bicycles). So far, the bike wing has done well. The only negative is loading both bikes can take 10 - 15 minutes and they never seems to go on the same way twice. But that said, the bike wing does as what was advertised. 528286

Do you have a question about this Hitch Bike Rack?


  • Recommended RV Rated Bike Rack to Carry 4 Bikes
  • You're correct we have 6 options of RV rated 4-bike racks that I've linked on this page. The most popular is the Swagman Trailhead # S63381. This is, of course, in part due to cost but it's also a Swagman who has done very well with bike racks for RV's. A lot of bike rack manufacturers haven't put much emphasis on the RV market where Swagman has done a great job. It is more of a basic model (No locks like you mentioned) but is great quality. The Cadillac in the lineup right now...

  • Easy to Load and Unload Platform Bike Rack to Carry 2 Adult Bikes and 2 Childrens Bikes
  • The Swagman Quad 2+2 # S64692 is a great bike rack and will carry all four of your bikes as long as they're within the 45 pound limit and have a wheelbase between 15 to 51 inches. However, to load the bikes you'll want the heaviest bike closest to the vehicle so getting the first bike loaded may be challenging for some people. See the video I've linked. Around the 0:50 mark you'll see the bike being unloaded. This should give you an idea. For another option you and your wife may...

  • Comparing the Swagman Quad 2+2, Hollywood Racks SportRider SE4, and Kuat NV 2.0 Bike Racks
  • I will be happy to help you out with the 3 platform bike racks you are looking at. I will go over each one for durability, ease of use, and what I would recommend. I might even throw in a surprise 4th option! In terms of durability there are a couple of things to look at. The Swagman Quad # S64692 and Hollywood Rack Sport Rider # HR1400 are primarily steel. Steel is strong but also heavy and susceptible to corrosion. These racks also use hand knobs to move the wheel cradles and those...

  • What is the Lightest 4-Bike Platform Style Bike Rack for a 2014 Tesla Model S with EcoHitch
  • For your 2014 Tesla Model S with EcoHitch # 306-X7201 the lightest 4-Bike rack (that is sort of a hybrid between a platform rack and a hanging rack) is the BikeWing # B01458. It weighs just 41 pounds. It holds the bikes at the wheels only and will accept bikes with wheelbases from 22 inches to 50 inches. I have linked a video review of this rack for you. For a more traditional rack the Saris Freedom SuperClamp # SA4026F you mentioned would be the lightest at 63 pounds. I have linked...

  • Bike Rack Recommendation for 4 Bikes on the Back of a Travel Trailer
  • Most bike racks are not built to withstand the stresses associated with being at the back of any type of trailer or RV. But there are some that you can use. For a 4-bike rack that you can use at the back of your trailer you can use the BikeWing # B01458 which holds the bikes at the wheels. If you prefer a rack that holds the bikes at the frame the Yakima LongHaul # Y02476 is a great option. I have included links to videos for both of these racks and a link to all of the 4-bike options...

  • Swinging Style Bike Rack Options for a 2015 Mercedes-Benz GL350
  • We do have some options for you to use a platform bike rack (which will not require an adapter bar) with the Kuat Pivot Swing Away Hitch Extender # PV20B to turn it into a swing away bike rack. Because of the additional stress of a 5 bike rack over a 4 bike rack Kuat says you can only use up to a 4 bike rack with this swing away hitch extender. From the center of the hitch pin hole to the nearest part of the extender measures 9" which is a measurement you can use to determine clearance. For...

  • 4-Bike Rack to use on the Back of Travel Trailer RV
  • At the rear of a trailer or RV the ride quality is very rough when compared to the ride quality at the rear of a passenger vehicle. Reason being the suspension isn't as sophisticated and there is a longer distance between the rear axle and the rear of the trailer which exaggerates the movement of the trailer when hitting bumps. Because of that only a few bike racks were designed to be reinforced enough for that type of use. We do have a somewhat similar 4 bike rack we have the Lets Go...

  • Recommended Hitch-Mounted Bike Rack for Fat Bike with 4-1/2 Inch Wide Tires
  • I do have a solution for you, however the Lets Go Aero BikeWing T4 # B01458 referenced in your question is not designed to secure fat bike tires. I recommend looking at a carrier that is designed specifically to support the larger wheel sizes of fat bikes, such as the Hollywood Racks Trail Rider 2-Bike Rack # HR200-FB. This carrier can transport 2 bikes with a maximum tire width of 5 inches and a maximum wheelbase of 60 inches. It has a weight capacity of 45 pounds per bike. I recommend...

  • Best Trailer Hitch and BIke Rack for 4 Bikes on a 2018 Honda Pilot
  • The best trailer hitch receiver we have for your 2018 Honda Pilot is the Curt Trailer Hitch Receiver part # C13146. This hitch installs use pre existing holes in the frame rail so there will be no drilling required. You also will not need to cut or trim as you can see in the attached install vehicle which is what makes it the perfect trailer hitch for you. Please keep in mind that a trailer hitch will only fit your vehicle as is if it has a 18" diameter or smaller spare tire. If you do...

  • Will the Pro Series Q-Slot or Let's Go Aero BikeWing Fit a 2016 Infiniti QX60
  • Both the Pro Series Q-Slot # PS63138 and the Let's Go Aero BikeWing # B01458 will fit in 2 inch trailer hitch receiver openings. Your 2016 Infiniti QX60 will need to have a 2 inch trailer hitch to use either rack. If you do not already have a 2 inch hitch on the vehicle you can add one using # 76031 or # C13126. Regarding the clearance the Q-Slot the distance from the center of the hitch pin hole to the nearest wheel hoop is 12 inches. On the BikeWing the clearance measurement is...

  • Bike and Canoe Carrier Options for Jayco 12HW Pop-Up Camper Trailer
  • We offer specialized roof racks made just for pop-up camper trailers like your Jayco 12HW and we also offer RV bike racks in several varieties. As a starting point I suggest you confirm the weight rating for the camper top. An average adult bike can weigh 35-lbs or more, so 4 or 5 bikes along with a canoe can present a significant weight load for the camper's top. A great-value camper rack comes from Swagman, their Roamer LT Roof Rack for Pop-Up Campers # S80510. This square bar...

  • Why Cant Yakima FourTimer Bike Rack be Used on Trailer or Motorhome
  • Only certain hitch-mounted bike racks are rated for use behind a trailer or motorhome. This is simply because of the extra movement and bounce that a bike rack endures behind a trailer/motorhome as opposed to one a standard passenger vehicle. The extra movement is due to the rear bumper on trailers being extended much further out from the rear axle than on a passenger car. Bike racks that are approved for this use have been tested for this application and can withstand the additional movement...

Our main page for RV hitches, that shows both hitch types, is linked for you. I also linked our main page for RV-rated bike racks; standard bike racks cannot be used on an RV due to the higher stresses found at the rear of such vehicles.

This will provide a sturdy 2 inch receiver opening for hitch-mounted bike racks like your Saris carrier.

Please note that Curt requires the use of stabilizing straps like # 18050 with this hitch for any non-trailer loads...

What you can do is use the 4-bike version of the BikeWing, # B01458, and cargo bag # B01212 with it. This will allow you to carry 2 bikes with cargo in the middle. It measures 16 inches from the center of the hitch pin hole to the nearest part of the rack (the bike loaded...

  • Is there a 4-Bike RV-Approved Bike Rack that Can Tilt Down with Bikes Loaded
  • Tilting bike racks are not available for RVs because where a rack pivots to tilt creates a point of weakness and because there is significantly more movement at the back of an RV it can cause a tilting rack to fail. The latest and greatest 4-bike RV-approved rack is the Yakima LongHaul 4 Bike Rack - 2" Hitches - Silver Item # Y02476. I have linked a video review of this rack for you. Another option that has a lower price point is the Lets Go Aero BikeWing T4 4-Bike Rack - 2" Hitches...

  • 4-Bike Rack for Use on Rear of Travel Trailer

We offer 2-inch hitches made to install on RVs and trailers, both bumper-mount and frame-mount types, that are shown on the linked page. The highest weight capacity comes from a frame-mount type hitch like Curt's # 13703. This one can be bolted on or welded on to a trailer frame from 22-...

What I do recommend is the Lets Go Aero BikeWing T4 4-Bike Rack - 2" Hitches - Tilting - Horizontal Wheel Mount Item # B01458 which is rated for use at the back of a trailer or RV.

What I recommend is to use the BikeWing # B01458 which is RV/trailer approved and add to that the AerPack Cargo Bag # B01212 for cargo.

I've attached a video review of the Yakima LongHaul that shows its installation a little clearer. The Yakima Longhaul only sits 11-1/2 inches away from the hitch pin hole, so its unlikely it will clear your spare tire if its furthest point is 15-1/2 inches. Additionally, its never recommended to exceed the per-bike weight capacity of any bike rack, especially on...

  • Will Curt RV Hitch 13703 Fit a Jayco X19H and a Tow Tuff Steel Cargo Carrier/Bike Rack
  • There are a couple of things to consider. First, since you are using the cargo carrier as a bike rack you should know that only certain bike racks are rated for use on the back of an RV or trailer. I could not determine if the Tow Tuff carrier is rated for this application but if I had to venture a guess based on design I would say that it isn't. Trailer hitch # 13703 does not have a specific trailer/RV fit list but it is the most versatile option. It fits box frames, I-Beam frames,...

If your beach bikes do not have fat tires, I recommend the Swagman Dispatch # S64684, a platform rack which is rated for use on RV's and has a weight capacity of 45 lbs per bike. It also comes with included bike and hitch locks, though it does have a maximum tire width of 3". If your beach...
