  • Swagman
  • Fixed Rack
  • Fits 2 Inch Hitch
  • Class 3
  • Frame Mount
  • Locks Not Included

The Trailhead lets you carry up to 4 bikes on the back of your vehicle. It has dual arms that fold down for storage, rotating anti-sway cradles with rubber straps, and an integrated reflector on each tip. Can be used with motorhomes and RV's.

  • Non-tilting, hitch-mounted rack carries up to 4 bicycles
  • Can be used with motorhomes and RVs
  • Dual-arm design provides maximum bike stability
  • Includes an integrated reflector at the end of each arm
  • Anti-sway cradles secure bikes to the rack at 3 points using durable rubber straps
    • Rotate left to right and adjust front to back
    • Accommodate many types of alternative and women's frames
    • Reduce the need for a bike adapter bar
    • Prevent bike-to-bike contact during transport - deter scratches on paint finish
  • Anti-rattle, threaded pin and clip secure the rack to the trailer hitch
    • Eliminates rattle in the hitch receiver
    • Replace with Swagman's anti-rattle lock (S64027; sold separately) to lock bike carrier to your vehicle


Specs:

  • Weight capacity: 100 lbs
    • 35 lbs Per bike
  • Application: 2" x 2" trailer hitch receivers
  • Distance between the 2 rack arms (outside to outside): 11-1/2"

Approved for use on cars, trucks, vans, SUVs, RVs, motorhomes, and towable campers

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


Swagman Trailhead 2-Bike Carrier

The Swagman Trailhead hitch-mounted bike rack carries four bikes on dual arms that provide superior stability during transport. The dual arms easily fold down for storage - just pull a pin - and each arm features an integrated reflector at its tip.


Anti-Sway Cradles

Swagman Trailhead Anti-Sway Cradles

The Trailhead has anti-sway cradles that rotate and slide along the dual arms to perfectly position your bicycles, reducing the need for a bike adapter bar. The cradles include durable rubber straps to hold your bikes firmly in place on the rack. Because the cradles secure each bike at three places (twice along the top tube and once along the seat post or down tube), rocking back and forth is virtually eliminated, preventing bike-to-bike contact.


Anti-Rattle Threaded Hitch Pin

Swagman Trailhead Anti-Rattle Threaded Hitch Pin

The Trailhead comes with an anti-rattle, threaded hitch pin and clip to secure the rack to your trailer hitch and eliminate rattle during transport. To lock your rack to the hitch, replace the pin and clip with Swagman's anti-rattle lock (S64029 - sold separately).

Very Good Quality, robust fit and function spot on. I have confidence this Bike Carrier will perform very well mounted on the back of my Hybrid Travel Trailer. 654860

Nothing extravagant about the product. It does what is purchased for: transporting a bike via bike frame. I had to get this for my fat bike did not fit on my bike rack platform. I saved money going with this and it does the job. It isn't as secure as some of the other options but to be fair those "security" options on products such as Thule aren't hard to bypass. If you want security use a cable and/or chain and anchor it to the tow-hitch through the frame. Speaking of security the loading pin is nothing more than a bolt that I tighten using a wrench. So the form of security in that sense is the thief not having a wrench or at least not the right wrench to do the job. So in the end it does what I need it to do. Nothing bad and nothing great about it, just right for the job. Like a meal that solves the issue of you being hungry, but isn't all that satisfying. 718542

We use this bike rack extensively on the rear of our travel trailer. We carried 3-4 bikes for about 5,000 miles over 23 days without a single issue. The bike rack couldn't have performed better. I have a rear mounted camera that stays on while I drive down the road so I could actually see the bikes and rack to make sure they remained stable...and they did, even over some bumpy roads. NOTE: trailer bumpers are not designed to hold anything other than a sewer hose. Visit a local welder to beef up your chassis and bumper before just simply adding a receiver hitch. You need to have a professional welder do this; pay the money...it will be worth it. Had a friend who's bike rack failed because the receiver wasn't properly mounted. 579479


Comments
The strength of the rear bumper will typically depend on the metal its constructed of and how the bumper is welded. Typically a continuously welded steel bumper is pretty strong.

My wife and I have been more than pleased with the bicycle rack purchases to be used primarily on the back of our 5th wheel. We have traveled from Kansas to Iowa, Nebraska, Minnesota, Wisconsin, without a speck of trouble, and have used it on the rear of my truck when traveling shorter distances from the campsite to get to trailheads. The fold down function is especially handy and prevents inadvertent head knockers when the trailer is at camp and the bicycles are not attached. The tie down straps are sturdy, and I would recommend this product to others. 247994

Great bike rack. I used it on the back of a rented Cruise America RV and drove over 1200 miles round trip including onto the Playa at Burning Man. We had 3 bikes one of which was a heavy electric bike and the rack worked perfectly. I did need to use a bar for the 2 girls bikes. One might have worked without it but it was borderline and I had purchased the bars just in case. Great 4 bike rack for use on a RV (especially when the receiver is 2-3" under the bumper as most Cruise Am RVs are.) 98308

Sturdy. Reason I didn't give it a 5 is because my Trek 8.1 male hybrid isn't a step through, but doesn't have a bar running parallel to the ground either... somewhere in between. Makes the bike a bit of a struggle to load past the rubber keepers. All my other bikes work great. Ok... so I copy and pasted the photo from Trek's site. But it illustrates my issue. 193879

Ive only used it twice in the past year. My Trek Hybrid doesnt fit well on it. My Giant road bike fits well.

Swagman Trailhead 4 Bike rack on 2015 Nissan Xterra. Solidly built, easy to install and carry two mountain bikes. Stable at 75 mph and over bumps. An excellent value. 383872


Comments
The bike rack is very solid and easy to install. Weve enjoyed using it over a year. We just purchased a womans mountain bike for my wife and with the more sloped center bar, its a challenge to mount the bike. Others may also find this a problem.

Thanks for the follow up. For alternative and bikes that do not have a standard horizontal crossbar we recommend using an adapter bar like # 64005
Swagman Deluxe Bike Frame Adapter Bar for Women's, Children's, and Alternative Frame Bikes

. This will allow you to mount the bike in a more level position in your bike rack.

I bought this bike rack because it was the only one I could find that was rated for the back of a camper. I wanted a 2-bike rack, but this company only made a a4-bike rack, so my son very obligingly cut it down to a 2-bike size with pipe cutters. Kids are handy..... So I’ve owned this bike rack for a year. I travel for three months in winter with my Scamp camper and the rack held up perfectly!! Superior product for sure. Dealing with Etrailer has been pleasant and professional. This year I ordered a bike cover from them. There was a short delay with the order and I received a call from the saleswoman about this matter just letting me know the expected delivery date and was that going to be a problem for me. It wasn’t, but i sure appreciated the call. Am I happy with products and service? You bet!!! Great company. Thanks, Etrailer!! 587701

After 3 trips (1,200 miles) have found this product to work well on our trailer. Pin on fold down top rack is an extremely tight fit which is great. Torqued the threaded hitch bolt and everything is still tight and no wiggle. I did remove the 4th bike holder so I have more space for our three bikes.... road bike, women’s 26” and girls 24”. Rick solid product. Arrived day 2 after order. 555966

Comments
Great! The one exception is the locking, anti-rattle hitch pin. The head of the bolt is neither standard or metric. I have to put it on with a crescent wrench which works but not convenient. The videos state that either a 7/8 or 19mm socket will fit depending on which locking pin you purchase. 15/16 or 24mm is what actually fits the bolt. If a had a 23mm socket, it would probably be a better fit. Love the bike rack and the ability to lock it in place, just not happy that the bolt was not the size that was stated on the videos.

I wonder if you somehow received a different anti-rattle pin than what was supposed to be in the box. I just pulled this exact bike rack and checked the anti-rattle bolt to find that it fits a 7/8" socket.

  • RV Camper Trailer Approved Bike Rack For E-Bike with 4 Inch Wide Tire
    The only e-bike compatible racks we carry that are rated for 5th wheel trailer use is the Hollywood Racks RV Rider 2 Electric "Cargo" Bike Platform Rack - 2" Hitches - Frame Mount # HR1670 or the Hollywood Racks RV Rider 2 Bike Platform Rack for E-Bikes - 2" Hitches - Frame Mount # HR1600.

  • Lightweight Bike Rack Recommendation for Use with Stromberg Carlson Bike Bunk
    The Swagman Trailhead 4-Bike Rack # S63381 weighs approximately 32 lbs; this leaves you with around 68 lbs or a little over 22 lbs per bike if carrying 3 bikes. As you mentioned, the Stromberg Carlson Bike Bunk # CC-275 has a 100 lb capacity, so carrying more than 2 or 3 bikes would likely put you over the limit. The only other RV approved rack that is more lightweight and can carry up to 3 bikes is the Swagman Original - 3 Bike Rack # S64152-2, weighing approximately 27 lbs.

  • How Do 4 Bikes Get Loaded on Swagman Trailhead Bike Rack
    While we don't have a video or detailed instructions on loading several bikes on the Swagman Trailhead 4-Bike Rack # S63381 I can offer some pointers on how to do this in general. The best way to do it is to stagger the direction of each bike as it gets loaded. So have the first facing left, the next facing right, the third facing left again etc. This allows the handlebars to clear the best. I did attach a picture of what four bikes look like installed on this rack as well as the review...

    To use a womens bike with the Swagman Trailhead part # S63381 all you need is an adapter bar like part # UB01.

  • 4 Bike Rack Recommendation for Rear of Camper
    I have a 4 bike rack I can recommend for the rear of your camper, but there are no traditional hitch mounted 4 bike platform bike racks available. Reason being that style of bike rack ends up being pretty long and heavy which when you combine that with the much rougher ride quality at the rear of a trailer it ends up putting quite a bit of strain on the hitch.

  • 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.

  • RV-Rated 4-Bike Hitch Racks for Use on Motorhome
    Hitch-mounted bike racks that are rated for use on a motorhome are built with the strength needed for the greater stress forces found at the rear of motorhomes and trailers. This extra stress results from the greater distance between the rear axle and hitch on such vehicles, as compared to that distance on a typical passenger car. That greater distance becomes greater leverage on the hitch. RV-rated racks with a 4-bike capacity are shown on the linked page. The Swagman Trailhead # S63381,...

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.

  • How to Use Bike Rack in 3 inch Trailer Hitch of 2017 Ford F-350
    What you need is the Buyer's Products part # 337RTA302 which fits your 3 inch hitch and gives you a 2 inch hitch for the bike rack to fit. This slides into your 3 inch hitch and then gives you a 2 inch hitch that sticks out a bit from the 3 inch hitch opening. This allows the bike hitch pin to work normally since essentially the rack is attaching to a 2 inch hitch like it is designed for. You'll need a pin for the adapter in the 3 inch hitch; use # 37201065 for a pin or # 63259 for a lock.

  • How Tall is the Swagman Trailhead Bike Rack # S63381
    The Swagman Trailhead # S63381 is approximately 40 inches tall. Most bike racks when mounted to the front of a vehicle will obstruct the driver's view at least somewhat. For a similar but shorter rack you could use the Thule Hitching Post Pro # TH934XTR which is approximately 34 inches tall. Keep in mind that it is also possible for the bikes to block the lights on your vehicle and restrict airflow to the motor.
