Video Transcript for Reese Eclipse 4 Bike Rack Review

Speaker 1: Today we're going to be taking a look at the Reese Eclipse tilting 4-bike rack for 2" hitches. Part number is 63124. The Reese Eclipse is a hanging-style 4-bike rack. It's got very sturdy construction and it's a really good cost-effective solution to transport all different types of bikes anywhere you might want to go.Another great thing about the Eclipse rack is that it is approved for use on motor homes, fifth wheel, and bumper-pull campers. Now the Eclipse is designed to work with all different types of bikes, whether that's mountain, road bikes, women's bikes, children's bikes. Rather than having the traditional two arms that come out, we're just going to have one center cradle in all four positions for our bike to rest down and on.

Here you can see we're using a bike adapter bar. That just helps us maintain the levelness of our bike. If we weren't using that, we could still put it underneath our tube here. But you could imagine that back end would be kicked up a little bit higher than the front, and it's not going to allow them to sit as even as with the bar.Also to help increase visibility you'll see here on the back we've got a built-in reflector. As lights hit that, people will be able to see that and determine that you do have a rack on the back of the vehicle.Now all along the top section here you're going to see six oblong holes.

These are designed so we can pass a cable lock through and around each of our bikes, and then reconnect it at the back. This will allow you to lock the bikes to the rack. By using a cable lock you're able to secure the bikes to the rack so you won't have to worry about them disappearing. Now with bikes loaded we are able to tilt the rack away from our vehicle. Now when you do this with this type of rack, you want to keep in mind your bikes are probably going to make contact with each other, and it's likely the larger bikes will touch the ground.

So while you can do it, if you have higher end or nicer bikes, not something we necessarily recommend.You're also probably going to need two people to do this if you have it fully loaded. We'll have AJ come in and help us out. He's going to lift on the back of the rack slightly. That's going to help us remove the pin. As you can see, you just want to guide it down pretty gently until either one of the tires on your bikes makes contact with the ground or it rests on that rubber gasket or that rubber piece there.

As you can see, full access into the hatch. Now that's going to save you a lot of time and a lot of headaches as compared to unloading all of the bikes and tilt it away. But remember those things that we talked about. Then to bring it back up, just going to reverse the process.Now when not in use, the shank of the rack will also fold up against the mast so it's not sticking out there. This is going to allow you an easier time storing it. Now to install the rack we need to line up the threaded hole that's here on the left side with the pin hole in our hitch, so we'll just be sliding that in. Then we'll thread in our provided anti-rattle bolt. This should be threaded in from the left side. You want to be sure that you've got your lock washer on there when you do it. We'll get that ran down hand tight. Then we're going to tighten it with a 24mm socket. We'll want that to be nice and snug. Then we can install the clip. That's just going to slide right in.Now a couple things I like. You can see the steel cable here. That's going to help ensure we don't lose our pin. As the rack comes down, it's going to rest on the rubber portion right here. That'll help make sure that we don't have any scratches or anything on that powder coat to help resist corrosion for a long time.Now in all four of our cradles you can see we've got the V-shaped rubber that's in place here. That allows the top tube of our bike to rest down and in. We're not going to have to worry about damage. Also, that larger groove you see on the bottom can help accommodate your brake and shifter cables.Now the cradles, the main portion of the rack, and the shank going into your car have all been treated with a nice powder coat finish. This should help to resist corrosion for a very long time.Now to get your bike installed on the rack you're of course going to want to remove the hook and loop straps, get them open. Then we're just going to place the top tube of the bike into the cradle. At that point we'll bring our strap through the ring on the other side and pull it down tight just like that. We can do the same thing for our other one.Now the cradles and straps have been designed to work with the smallest top tubes on the market all the way up to 2-1/4" in diameter. Now at this point you're ready to load up the rest of your bikes. You do want to keep in mind the rack has a 120 pound maximum capacity so you want to keep your bikes to about 30 pounds a piece. The heaviest bike should go in the front. As you go back you want those to get lighter. We found it's generally best to alternate the direction of the handlebars, so we have this one loaded this way. Our next one we would load that way.Now we can take just a second and compare the Eclipse to another very, very similar bike rack. In this case we're going to go with the Swagman Trailhead. Really good, well built bike rack just like what we have here with the Eclipse. It has a dual-arm setup and some pretty big cradles on it with rubber straps. Now those cradles are going to offer anti-sway control. This rocking motion that we have hr with the bikes will be eliminated slightly using that setup. But it can be harder to get bikes loaded up on there. Especially with when you've got the smaller areas like this, it's going to offer you a little bit more of a challenge. It's a 4-bike hanging-style rack just like what we have here. Tilts away from the vehicle very similarly to what this is going to do.Now a few other things to keep in mind. The Trailhead will work with 1-1/4" or with 2" hitches, where the Eclipse is going to be limited to just the 2" hitch. The weight capacity on that Trailhead is a little bit higher. Where the Eclipse is at 30 pounds per pike, the Trailhead's going to be at 35. Now that's really only going to come into effect probably if you've got ebikes that you're trying to load up. Then the last thing would be that while we can tilt this one away from our vehicle with the bikes loaded, it's not going to be something we can do with the Trailhead.Now one area I think the Trailhead does have an advantage over the Eclipse is going to be in the shank design. With the Trailhead, it comes up about 3" as it comes back. That's going to help to give us more ground clearance. That can be especially important if your hitch is very close to the ground. Now in another area where the Eclipse is going to have an advantage over the Trailhead is that we're able to use it with fifth wheel and bumper-pull campers. With the Trailhead, it's not approved for use on those.The Eclipse also receives really positive customer reviews. It's like Daniel A. said: "I was thrilled with how well packaged the rack was and I had no trouble assembling it and putting it on my vehicle. It fits great. The bikes I have fit on the rack well. It's one men's mountain bike, one women's 10-speed, and one child's bike. The child's bike is a close fit but it all works well. Great product." After one year out he said, "One year out and this product is still as great as it was when I first got it. No complaints here."Here on our test course we'll start by going through the slalom. This is going to show us the side to side action. This simulates turning corners or evasively maneuvering. Once we get to the alternating speed bumps, we'll see the twisting action. This will simulate hitting a curb or a pothole, or driving over uneven pavement. Once we get to the full speed bumps, we'll see the up and down action. This will be just like driving in and out of a parking lot, parking garage, or driveway.That'll complete our look at the Reese Eclipse tilting 4-bike rack, part number 63124.

The Pro Series 4 bike rack was an excellent choice for my needs. Sturdy construction, features that bike racks costing 4 times as much have and ease of assembly (under 15 minutes) made it a good buy. We will use it occasionally when we want to go riding with grandkids so it has to hold 2 adult and 2 kids bikes. I might need to buy an adapter bar once I see how the kids bikes rest on the cradle. I attached the rack to the car hitch and it felt very sturdy with minimal looseness. The tilt feature is great since it was installed on an Audi Q7. Deliver was quick(3 days) and phone service by Cathy was informative. Pictures and reviews were helpful for determining what bike rack would work better for our needs. For $119 I am very satisfied. 158973


Comments

I used the rack numerous times this summer. It is easy to install and remove. Pretty heavy construction and good locking mechanism. Did not need to buy the adapter bar as bikes fit fine without it but with some maneuvering of bikes. Still satisfied with this purchase.

still going. safety attachment for the tilt release pin didnt last long but not a problem. mounts and dismounts easily, hook and loop straps still work well. maybe side mounted reflectors/labels would be nice as it protrudes quite a bit and is somewhat unobtrusive when no bikes are mounted on it. still a happy customer.

Arrived quickly. Assembled in a few minutes. I've used it 3 or 4 times and it is easy to load and secure the bikes. The velcro straps are better than rubber. 137750

Just a follow-up note concerning the bike rack: it is the easiest, most efficient bike rack that I have seen - simple, inexpensive, and faster loading than any of those of my friends. They envy this one.

Another easy to install product that fit very well into the purchased receiver. Once installed and loaded with bikes, we drove approximately 400 miles before unloading the bikes and tucking the unit away. Reinstallation was quick adn efficient as was loading the bikes for the return trip. Well spent money. 219137


Comments

We repeated our trip from a year go and the bike rack still works very well. We did experience some spacing issues with a fat tire bike, but learned that if we removed the pedals and altered the positions of the bikes when loading, everything fit well. Very good investment and now when we take the bikes on vacation, it is saved money as the cost of renting bikes has been eliminated and in the second year, the money saved has exceeded the amount invested in this rack and the receiver.

The bike rack was very easy to put together and it fit my Jeep perfectly. I wish I had followed the advice that I read before ordering that suggested I buy the lock for it. Perhaps you could include it as part of the package and increase the cost accordingly. 140447

Still love the bike rack a year later. Did the lock become part of the package? I have recommended this rack to many people.

I'm from Canada, and strong well made products like this tend to be hard to find, and quite expensive. I bought this bike rack, and the to carry it. Both are extremely well made and were an excellent price. I would definitely recommend these products. Note that someone who is quite petit may find this bike rack a bit heavy to move around and mount into the hitch. 554382

I still love the rack... I read some reviews that were critical of the bikes moving and the rack wobbling in the receiver.. I think they are kinda silly... Its a great bike rack for the price..!!

Had some doubts since it was lot less expensive than the Thule Parkway that I've used in the past. But I was pleasantly surprised. The construction is solid. The design is simple and effective. Biggest difference being the single support vs. double bar of the Thule. Used it this weekend on a long road trip transporting a mt bike. Solid! Key is to balance the bike on the rails. The bolting hitch pin work great. Zero rattle. The support bar does not tilt like some of the ones out there but not a big deal for me. The whole rack does and is actually a far better design than the Thule.....much stronger. Can't go wrong with this one. Or etrailer for that matter. 63984

Just finished putting together and mounting my new bike rack on the back of my Highlander. It took less than 30 minutes to assemble and mount on vehicle. I then placed my bike on the rack and took a brief drive with it . The only thing I noticed is that you may want to use a bunge cord to hold the front wheel in place to keep it from swinging when driving. I may also consider looking for a small padlock to replace the hitch pin clip for security purposes. The tilting feature, for ease of access in to vehicle cargo area is also a plus. While I have not used it yet for a 'road trip', I feel very satisfied with the quality, function and price of the bike carrier. 347119


Comments

I use the bike rack on our Toyota Highlander and have been pleased with it. At first I thought a 4 bike rack was more than I needed, but now am glad I bought it instead of a two bike unit. A couple of nuisance items, not a big deal: The threaded locking pin that holds the unit on the trailer hitch, slides in from the left. For a left handed person, it is less convenient than I would have preferred. I was also curious about it being metric instead of standard, again not a big deal. Also - the hole it slides in to is recessed making it difficult to tighten up with anything other than a socket with an extension. Thinking ahead, it is not much of a problem, but I have to be sure i have a metric socket plus extension with me when it comes time to remove. Having said this, there may be a security reason for this design.

I can't say enough good things about this product. It arrived on time and in perfect condition. It was also very easy to put together and only took me about 10 minutes total. The quality of the hitch is top notch and should last a long time. It's very easy to get our bikes on and off the hitch and we can't wait to go on some bike adventures. 228678

Well made bike rack. Took a trip to Florida from Missouri and it held my bike and bike trailer very well. I like that it has anti-rattle pin that comes with it. Had to purchase a separate lock for it but that is fairly And reasonably priced - so no big deal. Specialty pin that holds the rack in upright position has a wire holder (so You dont loose the pin). So this wire holder snaped off after couple of short trips as it wasnt welded strongly enough, but I was able to re-attach it with home made ring/loop and a self taping screw. Overall good product and highly recommend it. 302279

When I purchased this rack I was assured that it would fit. I have a 2017 jeep and it doesn’t fit. I was told that since I didn’t have the original box, (I threw it away because the box was damaged when I received it) a 20% restocking fee would be applied. I also tried to return a bar adapter and was told the shipping would start at $12 to return. This entire order was a mistake. I will never purchase from them again! 562857

The value is excelent. As other reviews have indicated it is a bit heavy but it is very sturdy. the other racks we have had were lighter but the bikes scraped into each other a took the finish off. The racks were for a Rave 4 the back door doesn't open all the way but there is enough room for access. I don't usually do these types of evaluations, actually this is the first, but I felt that the customer service, product, price, assembly, and the quickness of delivery were cause to write this. 210878

We purchased this bike rack last year and mostly use it on the back of our camper when we travel. It is an excellent product I never worry that it is doing its job.

Good, sturdy rack. Extremely fast delivery. Just installed and put four bikes on. Drove about 7 miles around the neighborhood hitting every bump and hole I could find. The rack swayed a little to each side with sharp turns but all stayed well secured. I'll probably put a shimmey on the inside the reciever to reduce the sway a little and tie wheels together etc... to make it more secure. I think it will suit might needs just fine. 570137

Good rack at excellent price Strong rack, easy to use, really does hold 4 bikes securely in place. Used it on a 2500-mile road trip with no problems and minimal impact on gas mileage. Be careful if your hitch receiver is low, since the corner of the rack can easily hit the ground in driveway dips, speed bumps etc. Don't expect to use the tilt feature while bikes are on it; the weight of the bikes presses on the tilt pin so it can't be pulled out. The first one I got had a flaw in the base piece so the tilt pin holes wouldn't align properly when the pole was vertical. eTrailer Customer Service was very responsive and got me a replacement in time for our trip. I am also happy to see they have clarified the description about the hitch lock (this bit me because I tried to get keyed-alike hitch & cable locks); too many companies ignore suggestions like this. Again, Customer Service was great in sorting this out quickly. Thank you! And thanks also for your great Web site with instructional videos etc. - very useful! 1423

Very solid, ruggedly built receiver hitch rack. Spacing is good for four bikes. Design is best for road bikes or hardtail mountiain bikes with traditional diamond frame geometry. That's what I have, so it works well. May not be suitable for newer hardtail mountain bikes with more extreme frame geometry (can carry but bike will be nose down). Same for mixte frame (girls bikes, but they will be nose up). May or may not be a good fit for curved tube cruisers - depends on the design. Probably not suitable for full suspension bikes or bikes with radical departures from diamond frame design. But if you have a diamond frame bike with a traditional top tube, this rack is just what you need, and one of the most solid and easy to use racks you can get - just as good as the major brands at less than 1/3 of their price. Easy to install - insert in receiver then tighten the bolt with a wrench to secure the rack. Pivots down to allow tailgate to open on a van or SUV. May not fit on an SUV with tailgate mounted spare tire. A very good quality rack for traditional bikes. Couldn't be happier. 453864

I'm happy with the product and the price. Arrived very quickly too. As always, etrailer customer service is top notch. The only shortcoming for the item resides with the retaining clip for the pin that secures the unit to your car. Once you've screwed in the pin (though you'll need to have wrench available, perhaps left in your glove box, to tighten it), the hole in the pin that the retaining clip goes in may be oriented in such a way that you can't easily put the retaining clip on. (Not much space down there local to the trailer-hitch tube.) I could only do so from below, which means that if the retaining clip comes loose during a long and highly vibratory drive, it'll fall away. Ordinarily, you'd want to install a retaining clip from above, so that gravity helps keep it in place. I'll probably go and buy a circular key-ring-type of thing that'll work just as well. 502103

Assembled and used the hitch over memorial day weekend. Attached to 2008 Dodge Ram 2500, carried 2 adult bikes, 2 children's bikes. PROS: - Sturdy - Heavy duty - Well made CONS: - Reflector on the end arrived broken - Weight. This thing is very heavy by itself. - Allen wrench included is useless; too small to be used to tighten the screws due to location - Tilt mechanism didn't tilt low enough to get my tailgate down; I removed the stop bolt to enable this. - When tilting down, the bikes obviously like to shift around, and depending on how they are mounted, this could (and did) result in some less than favorable 'handlebar-in-spokes' conditions. - Also when tilting down, it is pretty much a two-person job when bikes are loaded due to weight. One person supports the rack and the other pulls/inserts the pin. - Some slack is built into the hitch piece, the pivot pin, and the lock pin, so the bikes shake around side to side some. 1 layer of gorilla tape around the hitch removed some, but 2 layers was too much. - The pin that is included to lock the rack into your hitch is very strange. Its at least an inch longer than it needs to be for a 2" receiver, and for some reason its threaded for about 2" close to the non-pin end. The rest of the bolt is thinner as well. - Children's bikes may or may not be able to fit on here on the top rail of the frame. One of the bikes I had, I had to attach it to the bottom rail instead, since I couldn't get the frame around the mounting blocks. It still seemed to ride ok, its just a little worry-some. Overall summary: - This is a fine hitch, and most of the time it will be on the back of my fifth wheel trailer, so I won't need the tilt mechanism. If you are purchasing this mainly due to the tilt, I would look elsewhere, since it's pretty painful to use, even if your tailgate clears it. 198188

This is my first bicycle rack purchase. My wife and I just bought Haro mountain bikes and needed a transport method. I was concerned when we received the package because the box was pretty badly beat up and crushed. But when I opened it up there was no damage to the product detected. I bought this rack due to the large number of positive reviews and the positive experiences described with etrailer.com. I was very pleased with the build quality right out of the box. The steel is quite a bit heavier gauge than I expected, and the assembly was super easy. I've only used the rack a few times so far, but I don't expect to have any issues due to the quality of materials used. I'm also pleased to report that I did find the same rack elsewhere at a slightly lower price, but when I contacted etrailer about the price they honored their "Lowest Price Pledge" and returned 110% of the difference without any hesitation. I was concerned that the rubber-lined "saddles" wouldn't fit our bikes properly due to the oval/oblong shape of the Haro backbone. But the bikes fit very nicely, and the velcro straps that hold the bike in place are plenty long for the application. I am very pleased with the purchase and will definitely look here first for any future similar needs. 214614

We have been using this rack for almost three months now. It is sturdy and easy to get the bikes off and on. We have only used it for two mountain bikes (one mens and one womens - we have not needed anything extra for the womens one). Although this is a great product and is a great price and we use it A LOT we are disappointed that we did not realize that is does not tilt down if you want to leave it on your vehicle without bikes. (This was our mistake by not paying better attention when we purchased it). It does stick out very far and I have hit my head on it several times. It is a bit heavy for me to put it on the car alone (my husband has to do it). Again, this is a great product BUT if you want to leave it on without bikes get one that tilts down when not in use, I would trade this one in a heart beat for one that does if I could. 43269

I am so excited to begin using this. Through the help of Etrailer.com, they were able to find me a bike rack and hitch that fit my Rogue. The employees were understanding of my budget and assured me that getting a hitch was a much safer bet. In a matter of a few hours I had fully installed a hitch and bike rack. What I love about this so far is that when I went to the store I was able to remove the pin and it gave me enough of an angle so that I could completely open my trunk without having to remove the entire product off the hitch. My only issue is that the instruction manual does not give you the tool size you need to tighten it to the hitch. Trial and error we found that a 7/8ths is what it needed. 546716

This product truly exceeded my high expectations. The other reviews of this product are correct. The build quality is excellent. I had a Thule Hitch rack before and I think this is a much better build quality. Nice, heavy steel. The locking bolt for the hitch mount is just that....a bolt instead of a standard hitch pin which also makes it more sturdy. The bikes are very stable on this rack. It also sits higher than a typical hitch carrier which I like as well. It comes nearly completely assembled. You only have to install the 4 holders onto the top of the rack with 8 allen bolts (allen wrench included) and 2 bolts to put the top half on the bottom half. Does not take long at all to assemble. Etrailer was great as well and had my order to me within 3 days with standard shipping! 22528

Haven't loaded bikes yet. Just finished assembly, which was a breeze. Feels a little loose when mounted, but don't know if that is any different than other bike racks. Only small issue with assembly was the supplied Allen wrench. The short leg is barely long enough to reach the screw inside each cradle. I used one that I had around so it went together smoothly. Did take about 15 minutes to put together, just like the box says. etrailer received my order, shipped it and I got everything installed in less than a week, start to finish. 362641

The bike rack arrived quick and was well packed. No damage or missing parts. It holds my bikes well with the use of a couple bungee cords. There is no vibration since the hitch pin is threaded into the bike rack. I keep the wrench in my truck in case I need to remove the rack. I would recommend this bike rack to my friends. 129099

You can't beat this bike rack for the price. Build quality is better than friends Yakima bike rack that was three times the cost. Reese products are great to begin with. Something else to consider...this rack has the longest horizontal reach receiver, 8.5" from pin hole to vertical upright, meaning I was able to leave our camp box on the RV bumper. The thread in hitch pin keeps it nice and tight too. This is also rated for RV use. Winner winner chicken dinner. 699659

Do you have a question about this Hitch Bike Rack?


  • What Is Needed To Attach And Use Reese Eclipse 4 Bike Rack With 2013 Dodge Grand Caravan
  • Yes, you will need to purchase a 2 inch hitch as well which is not included. The Reese Eclipse 4 Bike Rack, Item # 63124, will come with the basic hardware needed to attach the rack to a 2 inch hitch. It does not include items you need to cable lock the rack. Adapters for women's and children's bikes or alternative frames are also not included. For a 2 inch hitch, I recommend the Draw-Tite Class III Max Frame Receiver Hitch, Item # 75579. This hitch is a confirmed fit for your...

  • Hitch Mount Bike Rack for 4-Bikes on the Back of a Travel Trailer Using Curt Bumper Hitch E-100
  • There are only certain bike racks that are rated for use on the back of an RV or trailer but the Thule Hitching Post Pro # TH934XTR is not one of them so I cannot recommend it. But there are several 4-bike racks that are rated for this application. You can use the Swagman Trailhead # S63381. This rack is most like the Thule. It features a 2-arm design and anti-sway cradles. It is a sturdy build to handle the riggers of being at the back of a trailer. Other racks that are rated for this...

  • Trailer Hitch and Bike Rack for 2017 Subaru Forester
  • Yes, trailer hitch # E98839 fits your 2017 Subaru Forester and Reese Eclipse 4 Bike Rack # 63124 is compatible. This is a very good economical option for your Forester and the Eclipse will allow you to carry 4 bikes so long as they do not exceed the 30 lb per bike weight limit. If you are looking for locks to protect your investments you can use Cable Lock # CAB-10 to secure your bikes to the rack and Anti-Rattle Hitch Lock # HE6001 to secure the Eclipse to your hitch. Additionally,...

  • Height Dimensions of the Reese Eclipse 4 Bike Rack Part # 63124
  • The distance from the top of the shank to the top of the mounting plate on the Reese Eclipse 4 Bike Rack part # 63124 is 35-1/2". I have attached a photo of this for you as well. Please keep in mind that this distance will increase by an inch or so for the last few bikes as the mounting plate is angled. Unfortunately, I do not have any information on the longevity of the frame cradles. If any of your bikes have an alternative frame then you will want to use an adapter bar like the Bike...

  • Bike Rack Recommendation For Easy Cargo Area Access on 2015 Honda Odyssey
  • Hollywood Racks doesn't recommend opening the rear hatch or trunk of a vehicle once a rack has been installed for many reasons. First and foremost, it's an unsafe practice. The struts that hold up the liftgate on a minivan are only rated for a certain amount of weight. Having the extra weight on the liftgate could cause it to slam shut without warning, which could be extremely dangerous. Opening and closing the liftgate while it's installed can also damage the vehicle or the rack. If having...

  • Bike Rack Recommendations For 2018 Ford Edge SEL
  • I recommend the Saris Bones EX 3 Bike Rack - Adjustable Arms - Trunk Mount part # SA803 for the 2018 Ford Edge SEL. It fits all models of the Ford Edge and carries 3 bikes. The Saris Bones is a great option because of it's anti-sway cradles that secure the bikes to the rack. It also features adjustable arms so there is less of a need for a bike frame adapter bar on women's and children's bikes. While I do think the Saris Bones trunk mounted rack is a great option for you, however if...

  • Locking Hitch Pin for a Reese Eclipse 4 Bike Trailer Hitch Receiver Rack
  • For the Reese Eclipse, part # 63124 that you have, I recommend a TowReady Padlock style hitch lock, part # 5201 . This will be the appropriate size for your pin. We have also fit the 1-1/4 version, part # 5200 that has a slightly smaller receiver in the lock. You will just need to discard (Or hang onto for emergencies) the included hitch pin.

  • Recommended Anti-Rattle Hitch Lock for 2-Inch Class III Hitch
  • There are more secure options than a standard hitch pin and clip like # C21504 for securing a ball mount or other accessory in a 2-inch hitch. I can offer you options for both stabilizing the installed item and for locking it for theft deterrence. So long as the ball mount is a hollow type like # C45036 you can use Let's Go Aero part # 63232 to both stop play and rattle in the hitch and to lock the ball mount, or any other hollow-shank item such as a bike rack like # 63124.

  • Will Reese Eclipse Bike Rack Fit a 2015 Toyota RAV4
  • Reese Eclipse 4 Bike Rack for 2" Hitches - Tilting Item # 63124 will fit your 2015 Toyota RAV4 as long as it has a 2 inch hitch receiver opening. If the rack has a 1-1/4 inch receiver opening then I recommend Swagman Trailhead 4 Bike Rack for 1-1/4" and 2" Hitches - Tilting # S63380. This rack will work with 1-1/4 inch or 2 inch hitches. But, if the trailer hitch on your RAV4 is a Class I then it is limited to a maximum of 2 bikes. I have linked video reviews on both bike racks for you.

  • Recommended Trailer Hitch for Keystone Alpine 5th Wheel to use with Bike Rack
  • For a trailer hitch on your 2016 Keystone Alpine 5th Wheel, I recommend the Curt Adjustable Width Trailer Hitch Receiver # 13703. This adjustable hitch can mount to frame widths between 22 and 72 inches and has a maximum tongue weight of 350 pounds, although you will likely be limited by the tongue weight capacity of your trailer. This can either be bolted to the vehicle frame or welded on for a no-drill application. I recommend having a certified professional perform any welding. I have...

  • Which is Better For My Vehicles, The Thule Hitching Post Pro or the Reese Eclipse 4?
  • In this case, I recommend going with the Thule Hitching Post Pro, part # TH943XTR, over the Reese Eclipse 4 Bike Rack, part # 63124 The primary reason is the flexibility of the shank itself. The Hitching Post Pro can convert between 1-1/4" and 2" hitches, giving you the ability to use it on the available hitches for both of your vehicles. Additionally, the added Anti-Sway cradles on the Hitching Post Pro allows you to keep your bikes steadier and have less chance of damaging them...

  • Bike Rack Sways With 4 Bikes Loaded on Reese Eclipse Carrier 63124 on 2007 Honda Odyssey
  • These two bike carriers are similar overall but differ in that the Eclipse uses a single arm, 2-inch shank and offers 8 inches of clearance from the center of the hitch pin hole to the upright mast. Your Translite uses dual arms, fits both hitch sizes and provides 11 inches of clearance from the center of the hitch pin hole to the upright mast. This additional 3 inches of distance will tend to allow the Translite carrier to flex a bit more under load. My contact at ProSeries advises that...

  • Fitment of Curt RV Hitch 13703 on a Jayco Pinnacle 36RETS
  • The hitch we recommend for trailers like your Jayco Pinnacle 36 RETS is the Curt Multi-Fit Hitch part # 13703. With this hitch you would be able to install the brackets on the inside of the I-beam and would have 6 bolts holding it in place providing a much larger mounting surface than the other hitch. To ensure its fitment you could measure, the distance from the bend in the mounting plates where it sits on the I-beam to the top of the cross tube is 3 inches. The distance from the back...

For a hitch, the Draw-Tite # 36540 fits your 2014 Toyota Camry and is a Class II, 1-1/4" hitch and the 4-bike rack I recommend checking out that will work with it is the Swagman Trailhead # S63380.

  • Comparing Ground Clearance of Class III Trailer Hitches on a 2012 Honda Odyssey

But if you look at trailer hitch # 75270 the measurement from the ground up to the top of the receiver opening is 11-1/2 inches. I have linked a video that shows this.

The Curt hitch does angle up some but it will not have a negative effect on any hitch mounted accessories used or cause any...

  • Trailer Hitch Mount 4-Bike Bike Rack that Wont Interfere with Opening Hatch on a 2010 Honda Odyssey
  • First, it is not recommended on the Reese Eclipse bike rack to tilt it down with the bikes loaded. The rack was not designed for the additional stress. Although you would be able to open the rear hatch with the rack tilted down as shown in the video I have linked. This rack would not be the best option for women's bikes and bikes with alternative frames. This is because the cradles do not rotate to compensate for the slant in those style bikes. You would likely need to use bike adapter...

The only trunk mount bike rack option we currently have as a fit for your vehicle is our SeaSucker Hornet Rear Window Bike Rack part # 298-BH1302 which only carries one bike. This leaves you with two options. Option A involves the installation of one of our trailer hitches...

  • Why Can't the Folding Version of the Swagman Trailhead be Used at the Back of an RV
  • Yes, the folding feature is the difference that allows the non-folding version of the Trailhead, # S63381, to work with RVs and the folding version, # S63380, to be excluded. The folding feature creates a point of movement and a point of potential failure. There is one bike rack that folds and that is rated for use at the back of an RV; the Eclipse # 63124. I have included a link to a video review of this rack for you. The Titan # S63410 is not RV approved since it tilts.

  • Which Has More Clearance to Fit Past Spare of Vehicle Reese Bike Rack 63123 or 63124
  • The Reese hitch bike racks part # 63123 and # 63124 do have different shank designs so that is why one is longer than the other. The part # 63124 does have 8 inches from it's pin hole to the upright mast of the rack whereas the part # 63123 has a distance of 10-1/2 inches. If you are trying to clear a spare tire this would be the better option most likely. You'll need to measure from the hitch pin to the furthest point out on the spare.

You will see that this bike is an excellent fit for your vehicle and offers plenty of clearance for the rear hatch.

The product page link provided will show you all three options for 2-inch Class III hitch receivers. A good cost-effective choice is the Draw-Tite # 75902 which installs without welding or drilling and includes all required installation hardware. I have included...

  • Can the Reese 4 Bike Rack # 63124 Carry 26 Inch Cruisers
  • The Reese # 63124 bike rack should be able to handle your 26 inch cruisers with no problem. Since this rack uses hook and loop straps to secure the bikes to the rack, and the rack does not use anti-sway cradles that prevent the bikes from swaying back and forth and striking each other or the vehicle carrying them, this is a rack I would typically recommend for an occasional rider who is transporting their bikes short distances. The rack has a 120 lb weight capacity. If you will be frequently...

  • Bike Rack Recommendation to Replace Old Yakima Rack with BedRoc Cradles

These cradles have been discontinued for a long time now and the only replacement part available is the strap. As much as a I hate to say it I think it is time to retire the ol' girl and go with a new rack. If you like the Yakima racks then the DoubleDown # Y02424 is a great choice. It tilts, the arms fold, and it comes with anti-sway cradles. If you would rather stick with a single arm bike...

You will need a bike rack that can clear that distance to fit with the spare tire in place.

  • Bike Rack Recommendations for Use Behind an RV
  • The ride quality at the rear of an RV is much rougher than that of a passenger vehicle. This is largely due to the longer distance between the rear of the vehicle and rear axle.
