Swagman Original - 3 Bike Rack for 2" Trailer Hitches - S64152-2

I needed a small bike rack for my 5th wheel. I came to etrailer as my trusted source for info and availability since we live full time on the road. Plus these are hard to find in brick and mortar stores since COVID. I ordered the rack on a Sunday and received a confirmation and tracking number before I went to bed!! The package even arrived a day early. The rack is more sturdy than I had expected and look forward to safe transport of my bike. I also like I now have the ability to mount and use it on the rear of my pickup if needed. This is a 5 star rack but gets only 4 stars due to my one issue. The only issue was a small amount of what looks like welding slag in the threaded attachment hole to the trailer. (see picture) Having no other option, I just forced/re-threaded the bolt during installation. Since I hope to not need to remove the rack, I am just hoping for the best in the future.

Initial impressions. I have a Swagman from a few years ago and it was a failure on my 5th wheel. It mounted using either the 2" or the smaller receiver and I had it installed, with proper adapter, on a 2" receiver. A rough road caused the receiver bar to bend and we almost lost the bikes. This one is only 2" receiver and the bar is much more substantial. I expect it to work very well. Swagman has a replacement bolt/pin that will allow locking it to the receiver and they have an optional cable that locks to the receiver pin. Those will add security and probably something I will purchase.


Comments
We have been using this bike rack during our full time travels for 8 months and have had no issues in more than 6000 miles. I have 2 65 pound electric bikes on it. I added a locking hitch pin. I do wish it had somewhere I could attach my cable lock for added peace of mind. I do use the padlock on the clamp that holds the bikes.

Product is better and sturdier than I expected. I was shocked at how fast it shipped. It was extremely well packaged. I have not seen this type of care in shipping for a long time. I am very happy with the product especially at the price. It had several features I was looking for: 1. It is rigid to the hitch with no flopping. 2. The bikes can be securely locked to the carrier. 3. The unit can easily be locked to the hitch (with the additional locking bolt that I would recommend purchasing. 4. When not in use it can easily be stored FLAT in the storage area of my RV without taking up a lot of room. I would highly recommend etrailer and this bike carrier. I will be doing additional business with etrailer in the future!

I used it to haul my bike down to Florida from Minnesota on the back of my RV. With the base being screwed tight to the hitch it traveled with zero problems. Very heavily built. Stores flat against the wall in the storage area underneath. I am extremely pleased with this product!

Super happy with my purchase, the Swagman makes it easy and safe to transport you bikes. Saw one on the highway the other month and decided I needed to keep my investment safe and not worry when driving, found etrailer.com and continue buying other parts. Recommend purchasing the key lock for the hitch to keep it safe from theft. Great customer service!

Excellent product. After installing your heavy-duty 3-bike carrier, we carried our bicycles over 4,000 miles and they are still on the back of our 2018 Jayco 43’ 5th wheel trailer. Thanks for your follow up to our purchase in 2019. Is good business action to follow up on the products you sell. Happy Trails,

This bike rack was very easy to assemble and install. My bicycles fit on it well. My expectation is that it will work for many years without any problems. The rack seems to be made very well.



- S64152-2
by:

Very easy to assemble and install. Tested with one bike so far and very sturdy and out of the way of the rear hatch when opening. One note: The rubber pads can come off easily. If the rubber pieces fit more tightly in the keeper holes, they might be there much longer. These fall out easily when taking the bike off and on.

We ordered the Roadmaster dual hitch extension and the Swagman 3-bike rack for our Motorhome. We tow a vehicle and had our bikes on the back of our tow. They partially blocked our tow vehicle’s brake lights. We opted to get this assembly to attach to the coach and still be able to flat tow our vehicle. Assembly was easy, you will need two 5/8 hitch pins: 1 for the extension to the RV hitch and 1 to reattach your Blue Ox (or other flat tow assembly). Very sturdy construction. We are very pleased!

Sturdy and easy to put together. Would appreciate if there were 2 or 3 sets of holes in the receiver section to adjust distance from car.



- S64152-2

My only concern is that because we are going to use on our fifth wheel, it would be nice to be able to have choices on where you could put the connecting pin. It still appears to be far from the trailer. This is my second swagman, my other is over 20 years old and just broke on the way to our winter destination. I am wondering if I could have an additional hole drilled into the steel?


Comments
We have had a small problem, the top plate didnt hold well and one of the bikes slipped and twisted the plate. We are still able to use 2 of the 3 spots for now. It seems hard to find something that will be safe on back of trailer. We are very diligent about checking and tightening on every stop but still happened.

Easy to assemble and use. Great for hauling kids bikes or any standard bike without a thin walled frame. It clamps down the bike with confidence and simplicity. Swagman is simple and bombproof.

The rack is built with very sturdy construction and I am very pleased with it overall. Took it on a 1000 mile trip recently fully loaded without any issues. Only downside to this design is that it does not allow my tail gate on my Tundra to open completely when installed. Had to keep a 7/8 socket wrench at hand to remove it while on the trip. Not a huge deal. Got what I paid for :)

A friend gave us their bike rack to travel from NY to SC. It was so flimsy and loose we did not use it. I borrowed my son's once in SC (this model), and it was simple and worked extremely well. I bought the same for our next trip to SC. It holds the bikes firmly with easy ability to lock bikes onto the rack, I just need to purchase a locking hitch pin. One drawback is that it does not tilt so you can't access cargo without removing the rack. Otherwise a good value!


Comments
The locking hitch pin you will need for this bike rack part # S64152-2 is swagman threaded hitch pin lock part # S64027. This swagman bike rack does not tilt away for cargo access. I recommend swagman trailhead hanging bike rack part # S63365 with the tilt away feature. The trailhead tilts forward to allow easy access to vehicles rear cargo area. You will still need part # S64027 for the lock.

Very, very heavy. When you put your bike on the rack, the bike hangs very low. I have a Honda CRV and put my women's bike on the rack. When I drive over even a little teenie bump, the tires of the bike have hit the road and bent the bike. I will never buy this again. There is no way to adjust the height of the pipe coming out of the hitch. Terrible design. Very, very, very heavy. And I do not have a fancy bike but I was on the Interstate and hit a little tiny bump......at 55 miles per hour, it bent my entire tire and rim! Cost me over $100 to fix it. Never again. Only a child's bike will work on this. DO NOT BUY this bike rack.


Comments
It sounds like you need an adapter bar to keep the bikes level on the bike rack. The adapter bar will give the bike a level hanging surface so they are not crooked on the bike rack. It should help them from hanging too low and creating ground clearance issues. I recommend the Kuat adapter bar part # UB01
Kuat Ubar Bike Frame Adapter Bar for Women's and Alternative Frame Bikes
$39.00
because it extends from 15 inches to 23 inches so it will work on adult womens bikes and childrens bike frames.

I think the head size of the hitch bolt should be the same as the bolts used to build the bike rack. Not everyone will have socket larger than 18mm in there tool box. Will update review after a trip to the hardware store.

It is a tough bike rack which I can use with my travel trailer. I would give it 5 stars but the rack does not swing down for unloading. However, I don't think there is rack suitable for a travel trailer which also swings down. E-trailer shipped the bike rack in a timely fashion and the rack is exactly as advertised.


Comments
We do not have any bike racks that are travel trailer approved that swing away or down. If the bike rack is rated for motorhome, 5th wheel or camper use they have a fixed stinger that goes into the hitch receiver to avoid any excessive bouncing. We do have the Swagman trailhead part # S63381

The Swagman Original - 3 Bike Rack for 2" Trailer is built solid and I have no doubts that it will be able to withstand the physical stress of riding behind my 5th wheel. The bike rack does not fold, which is fine with me since it will be attached on the receiver of my pick-up truck or 5th wheel. Putting it together was somewhat easy. You do need a torque wrench to tighten the bolts/nuts to exactly 60 lbs to be on the safe side. One more thing, the bolt that secures the bike rack to the vehicle's receiver is threaded. When assembling the the bike rack receiver bar, make sure the threaded side is to the right if your are right-handed or left for left-handed people. It is so much easier to to thread the bolt in if positioned the right way. I know, I had to undo mine and turn the part 180 degrees to set the threaded side to the right. In all, I am still very satisfied with my purchase. The staff at etrailer.com is outstanding. The sale and customer service people go out of their way to make sure you get all the information needed to make the right choice.

This rack worked perfectly. It had plenty of clearance between my tailgate and itself. I also bought the leveling bars for each bike and they also worked perfectly. They made bike even with the top of the tailgate and I could only see some of the handlebars. There was no excess movement to cause me any distractions while driving. It’s made out of heavy duty steel tubing and easily held the weight of our bikes. It was super easy to put together and attach to my hitch. You will probably need a 2.5 - 2 in. reducer like I did. Overall, this was a great product. I’d recommend it to anyone.

  • How to Determine Clearance Needed for Swagman Hitch Bike Rack S64152-2
    It sounds like you have been using the 2-inch Swagman Original bike rack # S64152-2 with a 1-1/4-inch to 2-inch hitch extender/adapter like # HTAD or # HT5R. Both of these adapters allow 2-inch accessories to be used in a 1-1/4-inch hitch. While these items do both adapt size and provide extension (and the # HT5R also adds rise for more ground clearance) all such adapters will add potential for more motion of the loaded accessory, just as you noted.

  • Is a Bike Adapter Bar Needed for a Trek 7100
    I would indeed recommend using a bike adapter bar like part # 64005 when carrying your Trek 7100 on the Swagman Original Bike Rack part # S64152-2. The reason for this is because if you attached the bike rack directly to the carrier without an adapter bar, the front wheel would hang very close to the ground and if you were to hit a bump or go up a steep incline, the bike could make contact with the road and damage both the bike and bike rack.
