Review is for the Westside slope 3 bike rack. So far, I really like the rack. Have only used a few times and nothing long distance but seems to be well built. Easy to put together. I like the staggering height design to avoid handle bar interference. I have a cannondale lefty fork with three inch tires and fits well. Although, three inch tires is about the limit for the little ratcheting strap that hold the back tire down (but could easily substitute a small bungee cord). My son’s 20” bike fits well too. I searched around for a lot of different racks at different places and the Rocky Mounts Westside slope seemed to be the best bang for your buck. I also got the lock kit. etrailer.com was also by far the least expensive and shipping was great. 697872

It was a little bit more of a pain to assemble than I expected. They powder coat the bolt holes and it was a complete pain to bolt down a set of torx bolts. Also I wish there was a way to keep the hooks securely in place e when they are folded down. It seems they may be able to inadvertently swing freely under hard braking and damage my vehicle. Other than that it is fine. 695623

Fantastic website and great reviews, this really helped me decide which rack to get. I feel the rack is a great compromise of price, functionality, and security. The rack is heavy quality steel, I have no concerns going down the interstate with 3 bikes on the back of my 2019 Ram 1500 Crew cab. Assembly was really easy and straight forward. The tailgate almost opens all the way but hits the Ram logo on the tailgate. Not a show stopper for me. 810118

Product was ordered on a Saturday, shipped on that Saturday night, and arrived Wednesday (I paid for Express 3-5 day shipping). Single compact box. Assembly and first loading of bikes was straightforward and quick. I have an adult mountain bike, a 24 in kids bike, and a 20 in kids bike -- they all fit snugly and easily. I haven't driven yet, but I'm not at all concerned about wobble or bike security given the videos I saw and the assembly instructions/process. One issue: the rack arrived with a significant scrape (see pic). Did not happen in transit because the packaging was intact. I covered it with electric tape and will touch it up with Krylon. Not worth shipping back and replacing. I did call E-trailer's 800 number and spoke with an agent within 2 mins and he credited me $10 for the purchase of the Krylon, no questions asked. Great experience with customer service at E-trailer. 808733

Bike rack is definitely made with quality in mind... there is nothing cheap about it! Would definitely recommend it to anyone looking for a rack that’s easy to load and transport bikes securely. 728035

  • What Holds the Arms In Place on the RockyMounts WestSlope 3 Bike Rack While Folded Up
    The arms on the RockyMounts WestSlope 3 Bike Rack part # RKY10223 are held in place via friction. There would not be enough force for the arms to swing out while in the stowed position on the back of the vehicle even during travel. I did take a look through the reviews and none specifically stated they had issues with arms swinging out while in transit so I would not be worried. I did however see where there was another with the same concern but no report of an actual incident.

  • Will the RockyMounts WestSlope Fit a 2018 Ford Expedition
    The RockyMounts WestSlope 3 Bike Rack part # RKY10223 will be a great fit for 2018 Ford Expedition. The RockyMounts WestSlope tilts for access to the rear hatch, folds up for storage, and has an open design for easy loading as well as being lightweight.

  • Will the RockyMounts WestSlope Work On a 2017 Chevrolet Colorado and 2015 Chevrolet Equinox
    The RockyMounts WestSlope 3 Bike Rack part # RKY10223 will work perfectly on both your 2017 Chevrolet Colorado and 2015 Chevrolet Equinox. That said, the Equinox needs to have less than 5" between the center of the hitch pin hole and the outer edge of the bumper in order for the WestSlope to fold up. If you don't then you can use the Curt Trailer Hitch Receiver part # 13591 which measures 4-1/2".

  • Can RockyMounts WestSlope Bike Rack Fit 2019 Toyota Sienna and Have Clearance to Fold Up
    The RockyMounts WestSlope # RKY10223 that you referenced will fit and work well with your 2019 Toyota Sienna with the etrailer hitch # E98853 installed. It would also clear when folded up too. We've taken measurements on both the hitch and the bike rack to confirm that you'd have 1 inch of clearance to allow the rack to fold up. I attached a review video for this bike rack and an install video for the hitch as well.

  • Recommended Hitch and Bike Rack for 2018 Volkswagen Tiguan
    Yes. The etrailer # e98906 will be plenty strong to allow you to carry a bike rack and bikes with a weight of up to 350-lbs total on your 2018 Volkswagen Tiguan. This hitch has a 2" receiver that will allow you to carry a wide variety of hitch mounted accessories, in addition to a bike rack. If you're looking for a 3 bike rack to use on your new hitch, I recommend using the RockyMounts Westslope # RKY10223 because the platform makes it easy to get bikes on and off, plus this rack tilts...

  • Trailer Hitch Receiver and Bike Rack for Three Bikes on 2020 Volvo V60
    There are a couple options for bike racks to carry bikes on your 2020 Volvo V60, starting with the trailer hitch receiver, and the ones that fits to carry a bike rack is the Stealth Hitches Hidden Rack Receiver # SH47FR. This hitch will allow you to carry a 3-bike rack, and I the two best 3-bike racks are the Kuat Transfer 3-Bike Platform Rack # TS03B and RockyMounts WestSlope 3 Bike Rack # RKY10223. I have added links to video reviews for you to check out of both racks.

  • Will An Eco Hitch Hidden Trailer Hitch Carry 4 Bikes On A 2017 Chevy Bolt EV
    The EcoHitch Hidden Trailer Hitch Receiver # 306-X7359 will fit your 2017 Chevrolet Bolt EV and provides a 2" receiver that accommodates a 4-bike carrier. That said a significant limiting factor here is that from our research your vehicle tow capacity looks to be 100 lbs tongue weight and 1,000 lbs total trailer weight on your vehicle. Should you still decide to pursue this route, a bike rack like the Swagman Quad 2+2 2-Bike and 4-Bike Platform Rack # S64FR is 86 lbs and would not...

  • Will Trunk Mount Bike Rack Fit a 2014 Nissan Rogue SL
    I do have a way that you can travel with 2 bikes but unfortunately there are no trunk mount bike racks that fit your 2014 Nissan Rogue SL. Instead you'll either have to use a roof mount bike rack or have a trailer hitch installed and use a hitch mount bike rack. For a roof mount option I recommend the SeaSucker Mini Bomber Roof 2 Bike Rack # 298-BM2006 because it combines a roof rack with a bike rack. This means that it can easily be transferred to another vehicle down the road if the...

  • Platform Bike Rack for 2013 Honda Odyssey that Can Fit and Fold Up When Not in Use
    The RockyMounts Westlope 3 bike rack part # RKY10223 that you referenced would fit well when folded down but when folded up would be 1 inch short of clearing so you'd have to go a different route like with the Saris Freedom part # SA4414B which is actually a 4 bike rack but would easily fit and clear folded. There isn't a similar 3 bike rack that would have the clearance which is why this would be best option overall. I attached a review video for this rack for more info too.
