This multipurpose bike rack is perfect for use with your everyday vehicle and your recreational vehicle - all in one package. The bike rack mounts to a standard 2" square trailer hitch receiver, but - by adding an included sleeve to your bike rack shank - it also fits your RV bumper. The sleeve slides over your bike rack shank, and it's held in place by your threaded hitch pin. The sleeve is then connected with bolts to another included plate placed under your RV bumper. Installation takes only minutes.


The rack comes with wheel hoops that provide a stable base for mounting your bikes. The hoops adjust with a hand knob and slide along the arms of your rack to accommodate bikes with wheelbases up to 52" and tires up to 3-1/2" wide.


The upright arm includes a pair of push-button, ratcheting hooks that hold your bikes securely in place to prevent bike-to-bike and bike-to-vehicle contact during transport. The hooks feature soft padding to protect your bike frame, are offset so that you can carry two bikes of the same size simultaneously, and can be locked with a 1/4" padlock. Fold down the entire upright arm by pulling a pin at the base; this enables you to reach all the gear in your vehicle's rear cargo area obstacle free.


You can release the side arms of the rack by pulling pins at the base, then fold them up for convenient storage.

Video Transcript for Swagman RV Bumper 2 Bike Rack Review

Today we're going to be taking a look at the Swagman Platform Style 2-Bike Rack designed for use with RV bumpers or any standard 2 inch hitch. Part number on it is S64663. As you can see here, we've got our rack mounted to the back of our RV. This rack is great, it allows you to mount it onto any RV that has a square bumper here in the rear that's 4 to 4 1/2 inches wide. The rack will hold a wide variety of bikes. We have fully adjustable wheel cradles here.

They'll move along the entire length of the cradle or the cradle arm rather to allow us shortest bikes up to a lot of the very larger bikes. The cradles themselves, as you can see we've got our road bike mounted here, goes all the way down to the thinnest of thin bike tires all the way up to a 3 1/2 inch wide tire. Our center mast has two ratcheting style hooks on it. They've made them in two different lengths, we've got a shorter one and a longer one. This is going to allow us to transport two bikes that are the same size so if both of our hooks are the same length and both of our frames we're the same size they'd want to be in the same place. They'd want to hit each other.

Since they've designed that with those two different ones, tall bike, short bike can go in here at the same time or two tall bikes, really simple setup. Another great feature, right down here, it's kind of tough to see but there is a small pin hole there. Once we have our bikes on the carrier, we've got them heading down, before we leave we can actually put a small lock right through that. We can easily secure our bike to our rack using two locks, part number 131D. As you can see, when not in use the Swagman's really going to tuck into a nice small package, makes it really easy to store at home or even tuck it into one of the storage compartments on your RV. We've got two pins that are located down here at the base, pulling these allows us to rotate our wheel cradle arms down into position, we're going to reinsert those, of course. As you can see right here, pull it out, it's just a detent style.

Really easy to use, you just use pressure to get them in and out rather than some of them have a keyhole style where you have to turn it to just the right position and it can sometimes be a little bit of a headache. Our center mast also, after we're pulling the pin here, is going to lay down, out of the way for us. We can take that to both sides as you can see. Maybe one side works better than the other one does. You find your hole there and you'll simply want to reinsert your pin to hold it into place. This is going to be real handy if you've got something here like maybe a table that we want to fold down off the back of our RV, camper or maybe a pop-out or something like that. Now they have constructed this completely of steel and it has a black powder-coat finish.

It's really going to resist the corrosion for the dirt and debris you often find here in the rear of a RV. Also, 80 pound weight capacity with this thing so both bikes can weigh up to 40 pounds a piece. It's going to give us a real strong steady ride for our equipment. Another great feature of our rack is it's easy to removal when we're all said and done with it. We just want to pull the clip that we used, pull our bolt on out and that's really all there is to it. We've got it removed from our RV or camper and we can get heading down the road. To begin our installation, we'll come here to the bumper on our RV. We're going to bring in our bumper adapter and the plate that goes on the bottom. We also need to grab our five longer bolts and the nylon lock nuts. We'll find the position we want our adapter to be on our RV bumper, this one's got a spare tire over there so we don't want to go too far that way. At the same time we don't want to come over to this side too far because then our bikes will be hanging past the end of our RV and that's not something we want either. We picked this position. I think it's going to work really well, give us the clearance we need on both sides. Now we'll just bring our larger bolts down through, all four of our slots and then we'll start placing our bolts down through the plate, you want to get a couple nuts started on there just to hold it up into place. I got the two front started there, let's get the two in the rear started. All right, now that we've got those started, we just want to make sure that we've got this squared up on our bumper. We certainly don't want it twisted one way or another. Then we'll bring in our wrenches and start tightening this dude up. You do want to be sure that you hold your position, as you can see there as we we're tightening up our bolts, it's going to move and it's going to twist a little bit on you but just stay with it, you'll get them tight and be nice and secure. I put four of those nice and tight, now we'll grab our rack, we'll slide it right into our bumper adapter just like we would if we we're using this rack on a vehicle. In that case, you'd be sliding it right into the receiver tube of your hitch. Line up your threaded pin hole with the hitch pin hole, take our provided anti-rattle bolt and then we'll tighten that down with the wrench as well. Now this bolt should be torqued down to 40 foot pounds, I think is what it says in the instructions there, so you will want to keep that in mind. Once we have it secure, we'll slide our provided clip right in that other end. Then it's just going to be a matter of loading up our bike. We'll pull our frame hook down. As you can see, loaded up and ready for the road. Now that we've got our rack loaded to capacity, let's head out and see what it looks like in action. That will complete today's look at the Swagman RV Bumper Mounted 2-Bike Platform Style Rack, part number S64663. .

I recently completed the assembly of the bike rack. The rack comes to you about 3/4 assembled. The process is fairly painless if you are just a little bit mechanically inclined. I found the rack to be well made with some nice adjustable features. The clamps that hold the bikes in place are of two different sizes ( height or length). This allow us to use the shorter one on my wife's bike and the longer one on my bike. The adjustable wheel cradles are easy to adjust to different bike lengths. Haven't driven down the road with the bikes loaded but I don't see any issue with the rack in that regard. I will be cutting a hole in a tennis ball to put on the handle bar closest to the back of the camper. The rack appears to be solid. I did choose to go with the optionally available locking pin as well. This really solidified the feel of the rack. 699047

We bought this bike rack to use on the back of our travel trailer, works very well for transporting two bike, we live in Michigan and travel to Florida. . We have also used it on the back of our pickup truck, as it will slide into the hitch receiver. Good purchase. 584383

This is a well-constructed platform rack that appears to be sturdy yet relatively light weight, making it less of a burden on the rear bumper of our travel trailer. Had a few minor issues in assembling it. Instructions could be a bit more detailed--e.g. nowhere did they indicate where to use the four small washers, and end retainer screws are screws but are drawn like bolts in the instructions diagram. Having had platform racks before I think I finally deduced how to assemble all the parts correctly in the end. The rack sits a little too close to our travel trailer when mounted, and there is no adapter to move it out a little further. Had to put a piece of foam rubber on one bike handle to reduce chance of dents where it comes close to the trailer. Overall pretty satisfied with the rack and think it will serve its purpose. 414560


Comments

Less happy with it. The ratchet hook in the front has a tendency to lose its grip and move upward when subjected to bouncing at the rear end of our travel trailer. Have had to install hose clamp around the top of the retainer hook to secure the bike frame to the hook, plus put velcro straps around the lower wheel and platform wheel cradle so the bike doesnt work its way loose. The teeth the ratchet hook attaches to have also worn down and Ive had to file new grooves in the area where theyve degraded. Wish Id bought a sturdier model platform rack, although sturdier ones tend to weigh a lot more and strain the rear bumper on the trailer.

Great bike rack. I have both a Ram truck and a travel trailer, so the fact that I can use the same rack on both is a great plus. My cross bike has hydraulic disc brakes with the lines routed under the cross bar, so my earlier hanging rack gave me concerns that the lines would be damaged. No issue with this rack. I am an engineer, instructor and documentation expert, so I take notice on instructional and procedural documentation. I rate yours fair. The text and diagrams are too small for clarity. I initially installed the wheel holders upside down, which I did not notice until after I installed the stop screws (not set screws as you describe). I also drilled starter holes in the end caps so that I could get the screws started. Nothing tells you to install the bolt and knob in the wheel holders prior to sliding them in place. If added, it would prevent the upside down issue, especially if you added "knob up". There is no identification of parts. Many will not know what lynch pins, foot, (receiver bar?), etc. are. The "set screws" are bolts, not screws. I like the fact that I can carry the unit on the Ram and lower the bar to get the tailgate down without removing the rack. 107440

I used this hitch in a very different way, I bolted it backwards to my deck plate on Peterbilt 387 tractor so that my wife & I could carry our bikes on our cross country runs. It works real well. After 8 years of use and the abuse of salty winter roads my first one was getting in tough shape so I replaced it with another new one of the same model. It's a very sturdy unit and gave me years of dependable service, would highly recommend it to anyone. Here is a photo of the old one in service a few months before I replaced it. 84828

This hitch does a super job in a very tough environment being that mine is installed on a Class 8 vehicle, a Peterbilt 387, behind the cab

Bike rack was easy to assemble. We wanted a bike rack for our 5th wheel to fit on the bumper and still retain the roof ladder that's in the middle of the bumper. After tightening the hitch bolt, it is very sturdy. 512386

Just mounted on my camper (Scamp 5th wheel) looks good and solid bikes fit well. Product arrived safe and sound on time although a box inside a box inside a box was a bit overkill. Great website, service and products....thanks Etrailer. 87251


Comments

Product has worked well on the back of my camper trailer. Other racks sway and rub bikes together creating wear. This rack is rock solid no wear the bikes do not even move or touch. If you have a camper trailer dont bother looking at other types of racks use this type.

I started out with the actual hitch mount approach and it works great. I use a locking chain and bungee cords to make sure the bike(s) don’t somehow jump off. It is really easy to mount the rack and then load the bike(s). This year I now have a dinghy attached thus using up my hitch. Not a problem with this rack as it can be adapted to be a RV bumper mount - all of the parts needed for the conversion were provided with the original order. I will let you know how well it is working in a follow up review #2. 581581



- S64663

Product was originally back ordered from the manufacturer. eTrailer went above and beyond to see that I had this product before a near term departure date. Product is quite heavy and arrived well packaged. No shipment damage whatsoever despite the bulk and weight. Assembly was very straightforward and took about half an hour. Assembly directions were very clear but were not really needed. Simple hand tools are all that are required, although a few of the bolts will take a heavier duty adjustable wrench or set of sockets to install. Once installed and loaded with a pair of bicycles, I found the unit to be extremely stable (both on the back of my pickup truck and on the back of my RV). Once the cradles are properly adjusted for the spacing of the bicycle wheels, loading and unloading bicycles is a breeze. No more heavy lifting many feet off the ground. Although I did supplement with a binder strap, the bicycles are held very secure once you drop the top hooks down on them. The only con I have (which is mostly my own fault) is that the top latch scratched the frame on my bicycle because brake and shift cables run exposed along the top of my bike frame and I didn't think about the hook pushing them into the paint. Some padding under those cables before dropping the hook would have solved the problem. This is an innovative and well made rack that will give you many years of service and save you a lot of grief in the process. 52038

..we received our Swagman bike carrier in just 3 days after placing our order on a Saturday! We got our confirmation in minutes and the shipping info followed an hr later. WOW..great service !! The carrier was easy breezy to put together (approx 10 min) and then another 10-15 to place on the trailer bumper. We just got back from a week long trip..used our bikes every day. They were SO easy to get on and off. We wondered why we didn't buy from you sooner!!! All in all..a Great bike rack. 100098

Hi Patrick!We still LOVE our Swagman! It goes with us on all of our camping adventures. Sometimes we see vehicles on the way.. with their bicycle tires flapping around and we always say..they should have gotten a swagman!! Ha ha. We will continue to share with our fellow campers how easy E-Trailer.Com was to use. Thanks for the email and your great customer service!Tamara C.Kennewick, WA

can't use it with my Montana 3731FL 5th wheel, the bumper set a little under the back of the RV so I can't bolt the rack to the bumper. 521928


Comments

I have looked through our other bumper mount hitch options that we have for an RV and most of them would still interfere with how your bumper is recessed under your trailer. I am sorry this did not not work for another option that you might consider would be a ladder bike rack. I have included those here for your reference. I did speak with our representatives at Swagman and if you have the clearance you can mount the receiver portion on the underside of your bumper, but that looks like it would be difficult as well. All the other RV bumper mounted hitch will need access to both sides to properly secure the hitch to the RV bumper, and I can see that you bumper may not provide that access.

We received the above bike rack and found it easy to put together. We installed it yesterday and we are very satisfied. Going on the road soon, so can’t give a full review just yet. But, etrailer’s service is outstanding. Ernie Pagan 447837

Good product and seems to hold the bikes pretty good. The only issue I have is that the handlebars from one of my bicycles hits the RV housing. If you get this product and install it, please keep in mind that you will probably have to pad the one side of the handgrip. I have a spare tire attachment as well that I had to move. No big deal. Just that it's covering up the license plate now. We'll see how long it takes the "fuzz" to pull me over and tell me about this. LOL! 399641

Still working great! Havent been pulled over yet for partial blocking the RV plate. Still sticking to my original comment about padding the handle bars against the RV.

I mount this to the rear bumper on our new 2020 Entegra Odyssey 26 foot class C RV that rides on a Ford E450 chassis. I gave this a 2 Star rating because even though it is a well built, sturdy 2 bike carrier it has two flaws and with minor changes it would be a 5 star rated. I'm going to keep and just modify it to work for us. The first issue. The bike closes to the rear wall of the RV handlebars are right up against the RV fiberglass wall with our Jamis road bikes when you use the supplied clamp using it as intended. The second issue is the two adjustable hold down clamps are not shaped right to securely hold the bikes down safely. I had to put them in my vice and reshepe them the old fashion way. With a small sledgehammer. 718617

The rack is robust and fits my application of being installed on the 4X4 box tubing bumper on the back of my small ruggedized trailer. Packaging was pretty beat up. One of the small retaining pins was mashed and will need to be replaced. I hope etrailers will send me a replacement. A couple of other pieces were also bent or dented but I was able to repair them. The rack itself was first rate. 578755

They are one of the best companies I have ever delt with. 575112

I bought the Swagman 64663 approved for RV. It was easy to assemble and install. Well made and should last. My only issue was the bike handle will rub the back of my RV. So, I'll add a short extension. My hitch attaches to the frame and does not have a bumper. With a bumper, an extension probably would not be required. As always customer service has been great. 540626

This bike rack is a great product, easy to install, very easy to load the bikes and super solid for hauling them. My son followed me on my first trip with it and he said the bikes never even moved! I have had it a year now and have used it on the back of my RV (travel trailer) and on my pickup truck, and have had absolutely no issues with it. I would highly recommend it to anyone wanting a secure way to haul their bikes. 529327

I was a bit surprised at how heavy the box was when it arrived. It came with instructions for assembly that were pretty easy to follow. I got it all together then went to mount it on my bumper of my trailer and found out it's way to heavy for the flimsy bumper I have. ( i had read on several forums that this is a problem for many trailers) Lucky for me, I have a hitch on the front of my truck too. It mounted perfectly on there. This bike rack is BAD ASS! It's very easy to adjust for the different wheel lengths on different bicycles. It holds the bikes VERY securely in place. I'd say, check the load rating of your bumper if you are planning to mount this on your trailer before you buy it. Or plan to beef-up your bumper some how. Otherwise, this thing is fantastic! 440532

Delivery time was early than expected considering it was free delivery what a great surprise. Packaging was superb no chance of damage. Can't say enough about the product design and craftsmanship superb. thanks again etrailer. Oh almost forgot , can't beat the price excellent. Also it will be a lot easier carrying our bikes on this rack verses under the truck cap. So easy to assemble and mount on camper A frame, up and out of the way. 437804

The bike rack itself is very well made and sturdy. However, it is not readily securable to the vehicle, meaning it is not theft proof as configured. I was led to believe that purchasing a locking pin would secure the rack. That is not the case. It only locks the extension tube in the hitch receiver. The rest of the rack with bikes attached is easily removed by loosening two bolts and releasing a pin. The locking pin in the hitch receiver is pointless. This should be made clear in the description on etrailer. 415320

Bought this Swagman bike rack so we could take our mountain bikes camping and use the rack on either our truck or our 5th wheel. It's a sturdy rack that's relatively easy to use. Releasing the hold-down hooks can be difficult at times, but not a big deal. Once you get the tire hoops set in the right position it's easy to get the bikes secured on the rack. In short, I would buy this rack again. There are some nicer racks out there that might be easier to use, but they cost a lot more. This one is the best bang for the buck that I've found. 414887

It took maybe 10 minutes to put the bike rack together, never even looked at the instructions it was that obvious how it went together. It's much heavier materials than I was expecting, I see many years of service in the future. This is without a doubt one of the best products I've ever purchased on line. Would not hesitate to recommend this bike rack, it's a quality product.. 391680

Ask the Experts about this Swagman Hitch Bike Racks

Do you have a question about this Hitch Bike Rack?


  • Trailer Hitch Adapter to Carry Bike Rack for Electric Bikes and Flat Tow Behind Motorhome
  • To use a bike rack while you flat tow a vehicle behind your motorhome all you will need is a dual hitch adapter. There are three of these that could work depending on the rise or drop you need. All of these have a towing capacity of 10,000 lbs and tongue weight capacity of 400 lbs. - Roadmaster Dual Hitch Receiver Adapter, 2-1/4" Drop/Rise # RM-077-2 - Roadmaster Dual Hitch Receiver Adapter, 4" Drop/Rise # RM-077-4 - Roadmaster Dual Hitch Receiver Adapter, 6" Drop/Rise # RM-077-6 -...

  • Carrying Bikes at the Front of a Travel Trailer
  • You could use the Swagman Straddler # S80503 if you want to. However you have to stay within the capacity of the Straddler which is 100 pounds. That means the combined weight of the bike rack you use and the bikes cannot exceed 100 pounds. The Swagman Dispatch # S64684 weighs about 51 pounds by itself meaning the combined weight of the bikes cannot exceed 49 pounds. You could instead go with Swagman rack # S64663 which weighs about 30 pounds. You would not use the hitch part that comes...

  • Can Swagman Platform-Style 2 Bike Rack # S64663 be Mounted Below RV Bumper
  • I spoke with my contact at Swagman about the possibility of mounting the bumper bracket for the Platform-Style 2 Bike Rack # S64663 so that the receiver is below the RV bumper. He said that while they have heard of customers doing this, they do not recommend it as the bracket has not been tested in this manner. If you have a 4 inch square bumper on your RV then another option is to first mount the Buyers Products RV Universal Receiver Hitch # 3371804060, which has been tested and rated...

  • Platform Bike Rack That Will Mount On The Back Of An RV With A Spare Tire Carrier
  • The Swagman Platform-Style 2 Bike Rack part # S64663 has a distance from the center of the hitch pin hole to the first part of the upright mast of 10-1/2" and 8" to the wheel hoop. If the tire protrudes outward more than 10 inches beyond the center of the hitch pin hole of your RV's hitch then this bike rack will not work. For a bike rack with a greater distance from center of the hitch pinhole to the upright mast, I recommend using the Swagman Escapee 2-Bike Platform Rack part # S64693...

  • Will Bikes Loaded on Swagman Bumper Mount Bike Rack Move Enough to Make Contact with Trailer
  • Every trailer with the Swagman rack # S80605 is going to be a little different so it may or may not be a concern on your trailer. To help prevent a bike or the trailer from getting damaged you would want to make sure everything is tied down as snug as it can be. Other option is to use the 4-bike model, # S80600, and place the bikes in the second and third locations. Or another option is # S64663 which comes with a bumper mounted hitch. On it the distance from the center of the hitch...

  • How to Carry Two Bikes While Flat Towing With Motorhome
  • We definitely have a solution for you that will allow you to carry your two bikes though not the exact adapter you are asking about that already has a ball mount. The first option is to use a dual hitch adapter which does have the needed clearance between the top and bottom receivers, though you do need to ensure you get the one that has the correct rise or drop. For that you can use the Roadmaster Dual Hitch Receiver Adapter, 6" Drop/Rise # RM-077-6, 8" Drop/Rise # RM-077-8 or 10"...

  • Can the Swagman Platform-Style Bike Rack 64663 be Installed on a Trailer Hitch
  • Yes, you can use the Swagman Platform-Style 2 Bike Rack # S64663 with a 2" receiver, like the Curt # E-100 that you referenced, or with the bumper mount that comes with the bike rack. To ensure that this fits your application you can measure 6-3/4" from the front end of your bumper as that is about where the rearmost cradle will sit of the Swagman bike rack. If you would like to add locks to this bike rack then part # S64027 will lock the bike rack while 2 of the padlocks # 131D...

  • Bike Rack Recommendation for a 4 inch RV Bumper
  • Continously welded 4 inch bumper means that it doesn't have an open side on it. It's 4 inch by 4 inch and has no open sides. As long as their isn't an open side on your bumper the part # S64663 would work great.

  • Is Swagman Platform Bike Rack S64663 Suitable for Back of 5th Wheel
  • Yes, the Swagman Platform-Style 2 Bike Rack # S64663 is rated for use at the back of a 5th wheel trailer like yours so it would be suitable for you. I attached a review video for it as well. If you plan on carrying any womens or alternative framed bikes without horizontal top tubes you may also be interested in purchasing a Kuat Bike Frame Adapter Bar # UB01 to provide a horizontal top tube on your bikes to provide an attachment point. I attached a review video for this product also....

  • Looking for Bike Rack with 100 lb Capacity to Clear Spare Tire on 1994 Chevy Sportsman RV
  • As you state, the weight capacity of the Swagman Platform-Style 2 Bike Rack is 80 lbs. I cannot recommend exceeding that figure, as doing so can damage the receiver hitch resulting in loss of the rack and the bikes. We do offer two platform-style racks with sufficient weight capacity to safely carry your bikes. The Thule T2, part # TH9044, offers a 120 lb weight capacity, and offers 19 inches of clearance between the hitch pin hole in the shank that slides into the receiver and the closest...

  • Available Types of RV-Rated Bike Racks for Use on Class B Motorhome
  • We can help you select a 2-bike hitch-mount bike rack that is safe to use on the back of your Class B motorhome. Due to the extra motion at the back of an RV (as compared to a passenger car) it is necessary to use a bike rack specifically made and rated for RV use. These specialized racks are made to be stronger in key areas, particularly the shank that goes into the hitch and that bears the total rack and bike weight. Your best RV bike rack choice can depend on the design of the bikes...

  • Difference Between Swagman Bike Rack # S64664 and # S64663
  • The Swagman Traveler XCS # S64664 and the Swagman Bike Rack # S64663 referenced in your question differ only in how they actually attach to the vehicle or RV/trailer. Both bike carriers are indeed approved for use behind an RV or trailer. The Swagman Traveler # S64664 will actually secure to a 2 inch square ball mount. This is a nice option if you plan on towing a trailer behind your RV while also needing to secure the bike rack. The Swagman Bike Rack # S64663, on the other hand, includes...

  • RV-Rated Bike Rack Recommendations for Class A Motorhome
  • A hitch extension would seem to be the ideal solution for your circumstances with insufficient bike clearance at the back of your RV, but any type of extension like # C45791 will cost you half of your hitch capacity. Hitch adapters/extenders cause this loss of capacity because they change the geometry of the system, allowing for more stress to be applied to the hitch tube because the actual load is further away. A better option is an RV-rated bike rack that provides enough clearance...

  • Bumper Bike Rack Recommendation for Rear of Cougar Fifth Wheel Camper
  • I looked up pictures of Cougar fifth wheels and every shot of the rear of one had a 4 inch bumper on it that could be used for a bike rack like the Swagman Platform Rack part # S64663 which comes with a bumper hitch you would install on the trailer. I attached a review video for this rack that shows it at the rear of a camper similar to yours.

  • Platform Bike Racks that are Rated for Rear of Trailer, RV or Camper
  • I spoke with my contact at Swagman and she said the Swagman XTC-2 2-Bike Platform Rack # S64670 that you reference is not rated for use at the rear of an RV, trailer or camper because of the additional forces present at the back of trailers. The Swagman 2 bike platform racks rated for use at the rear of an RV, trailer or camper are parts # S64663 and # S64664. Both of these bike racks will only be able to carry 2 bikes. I am including links to the installation instructions for both of...

  • Platform Bike Rack Recommendation without Rise in Shank for Front Mount Hitch
  • Your best option for the front mount hitch on your 2004 Toyota Tundra would be a platform hitch that does not have a rise built into the shank like the part # S64663. This rack would basically put your bikes level with the hitch opening and would be the lowest profile setup that should work well for you.

  • Trailer Hitch Mount Bike Rack Recommendation for a Tiffin Allegro RED Motor Home
  • We have numerous racks that are rated for use behind an RV or trailer that would work for you. A rack with 4 inches of clearance probably will not work. The regular XC, # S64650, measures 10-1/2 inches from the center of the hitch pin hole out to the first wheel hoop. The XTC-2 that you referenced, # S64670, would also be a better choice. It measures 8 inches from hitch pin hole to wheel hoop. I have included links to videos on both racks for you to view. I have also included a link...

  • Trailer Hitch Recommendation for a 2014 Keystone Bullet for Carrying Bike Rack
  • The best solution I can provide for you would be the Curt adjustable multi-fit trailer hitch part # 13703 which can basically fit any trailer frame that is between 22 and 72 inches in width. This would be great for carrying a bike rack, but you will need to make sure the bike rack is rated for the rougher ride quality at the rear of a trailer. The Swagman Bike rack part # S64663 would be perfect for this and would be what I would recommend. Curt requires the use of their stabilizer...

  • Bike Rack Options While Using A Tow Dolly
  • I do have an option that will allow you to use a bike rack on the rear of the vehicle while towing a tow dolly, however, there currently are not any dual hitch adapters that will allow you to use a 10" drop ball mount and remain within your weight capacity. Therefore, the only way to use a hitch bike rack on the rear of an RV while also towing a car with a tow dolly, would involve a bike rack that slides over the ball mount. The only bike rack that will slide over the ball mount and...

  • Will the Swagman Platform-Style 2 Bike rack for RV Bumpers # S64663 Sit Lower than Other Racks
  • The Swagman Platform-Style 2 Bike rack for RV Bumpers, item # S64663, will sit a little lower than the other carriers like the Swagman XC, item # S64650. You would need a 2 inch receiver hitch to use the # S64663 RV bumper rack on your vehicle.

  • Can Bent Towing Receiver # SP325 be Used with Swagman Platform-Style 2 Bike Rack # S64663
  • I spoke with my contact at Swagman and yes, the Bent Towing Receiver, # SP325, can be used with your Swagman Platform-Style 2 Bike Rack, # S64663. The Bent Towing Receiver, # SP325, is designed to slide over 2 inch square ball mounts so it will work with the Class III Ball Mount, # 80232. As for being able to pull a car on a dolly and also have the bike mounted to the RV, you will want to check the tongue weight and towing capacity of your RV as well as the capacity of the hitch....

  • RV Hitch Bike Rack Recommendation for a Class C Motor Home
  • If you are concerned about the bikes swaying, I recommend the Swagman platform style bike rack, item # S64663. This rack will install in the hitch and holds the bike at the wheels and frame so there is no chance of the bikes contacting each other or the rear of the vehicle. If you would like a rack with frame mount cradles the Swagman Original 3, item # S64152-2, is a good choice. This rack is sturdy enough for your application, but will allow some movement of the bikes when starting...

I would recommend the Roadmaster Dual Hitch Receiver Adapter, item # RM-077-2, for towing a vehicle and using a bike rack in the top receiver. You could use the Swagman Platform-Style 2 Bike Carrier, item # S64663, which would be a good choice, or any of the bike racks we have rated for use behind a RV that will fit in a 2 inch hitch, see link.

  • RV Bike Rack For Camper Trailer to Fit Around Spare Tire
  • 18 inches from the center of a hitch pin hole to out and around a spare is a pretty large distance. The only bike rack solution I have for that would be the RV Bumper 2 Bike Rack for Around the Spare Tire # S80501 that is designed to fit around a spare like in the picture I attached. I also attached a review video that shows it being installed and demoed as well. Hitch extenders like you mentioned aren't great solutions since they add quite a bit of movement and leverage to the accessory...

  • Bike Rack for 2003 Coleman Carmel A-Frame Pop-Up Camper

In your case with a 3-inch bumper, you could use a wood block to make up for the different dimension of your bumper but only if the bumper is continuously welded along its entire length.

  • Compatibility of Hitch-Mount Bike Rack with 2015 Airstream Flying Cloud Travel Trailer
  • A hitch-mount bike rack designed for use on a passenger car cannot be used on the back of a trailer like your 2015 Airstream Flying Cloud. The vertical and horizontal forces at the rear of a trailer are far more severe than at the back of a typical passenger vehicle due to the greater distance between the rear axle and the rack. In the same way that the last seat row on a bus gets a rougher ride than those up front, a bike rack installed in a hitch on the back of a trailer will have far...

But for a hitch the most popular option is the # 13703 as it can basically fit any trailer frame design as long as it is between 22 and 72 inches in width.
