The Swagman XTC4 hitch-mounted platform rack takes the hassle out of transporting bikes of various sizes and styles. This sturdy powder coated steel rack accommodates most bike frames and makes for quick loading and unloading. The stable tray-style design offers 3 points of contact for each bike: 2 adjustable wheel hoops and a cushioned frame hook that won't scratch your bike. And when you're not using it, the 4-bike carrier folds up against your vehicle so it's out of the way.


Bike rack in unfolded position with slight incline to improve ground clearance

When the XTC4 bike rack is folded down for use, the base of the rack sits at a slight incline to improve ground clearance.


Bike hooks with push buttons and ratcheting system

Cushioned hooks slide easily down the rack's upright masts to secure each bike at the frame. The hooks click into place with the built-in ratcheting system. When it's time to remove your bikes, you can slide the hooks back up by pushing the integrated buttons to release them.


Adjustable wheel hoops with hand knobs and straps to secure wheels

The wheel hoops slide along the rack's horizontal arms to accommodate bikes with different wheelbases. When the hoops are positioned as desired, you can tighten them in place with the built-in hand knobs. Rubber straps let you secure your bikes' wheels to the wheel hoops.

Bought this bike rack on sale during Memorial Day weekend. Reviews have always seemed good. So I jumped at the chance to buy a quality 4 place platform bike rack [on sale]. However it took a long time to get as the company (Swagman) shutdown during the Covid shutdowns. I finally received it early July. Very well built, solid bike rack. I used it on our western trip to Colorado. Bikes stayed tight and did not loosen up the entire trip both ways! I didn’t worry after I seen they were still solid at the first fuel stop. Love the ratcheting frame holding clamps. I did have to purchase the fat tire hoops for my sons bike. And they too were well made. Love that the rack comes with a cable and lock to lock the bikes and rack to the vehicle. I highly recommend this rack. It’s only down fall is that you can’t open the tailgate with bikes on it. But for the $$$ I can overlook that. It does fold up and out of the way for driving without bikes. Only a couple of negatives.....it is a heavy rack (which is a good thing). And also bulky which can make it hard to store for some people. It does stick out rather far, approx 4ft. I put some reflective tape on the end supports for people to see. And you cannot access the rear tailgate area (see above). I had a 4 bike hanging rack for many years. Never realized how much I hated that until I used this one. No damage to the bikes. They don’t bounce around. Just an all around better way to haul bikes.

The other reviews were very fair. The rack is sturdy so the trade off is that it’s pretty heavy. I’m ok with it but my wife won’t be able to swap it between the CR-V and Ascent. The instructions leave a lot to be desired but you get the hang of it fast enough through trial and error. It took me an hour to assemble and another hour to mount it to the hitch, adjust the hoops for each of our bikes, and get everything dialed in. PLENTY of clearance backing out of the driveway which was a nice little surprise. I’m adding a picture to confirm that a beginner bike, cruiser, and hybrid mountain all fit just fine.

Generally like this trailer, great value and strong. Have moved my family of four bikes around on it for a year. I only remove one star because its heavy and thus a little difficult to take on and off, also 27+ tires are A little tight fit, but overall its a good and durable trailer for 4 bikes. My other recommendation is to get your 4 bikes loaded and keep a picture of them. Its best to get it set up for a specific load order and direction and keep the bikes in that order.

Still working after a year. Install is getting tighter now that my kids are growing into full size bikes, but we still use the rack regularly and its holding up well!

Very sturdy bike rack. Bikes don't move at all. Takes some time to put together. Directions are horrible. Very happy with this purchase. Recommend taking some pictures after you have the bikes on. Took some time To get all four bikes on( puzzle) with the pedals And different size bikes.

If you've done any research or read any of the other comments on either this rack, or this seller...rest assured they really are as good as everyone says! I ordered my rack on around 4pm est on a Friday afternoon and within an hour I received an email that said they have shipped my product AND upgraded to priority shipping. Can't say enough positive things about the customer service! When the rack arrived, it took me a little over half an hour to get it set up. Probably would e been faster if I were even slightly mechanically inclined (or if didn't I didn't have to borrow a socket wrench from my neighbor). We finally had an opportunity to load up the bikes and head out for a ride today. As others have said, the first time you load up your bikes, it's kind of like a puzzle to get them situated. Took about 15 minutes. This rack is awesome! Very sturdy and the bikes were very secure. Only racks I have had in the past were rooftop fork mount racks. This is so much easier! On e we got to the trail (over an hour drive) getting the bikes off was a piece of cake. Afterwards, it was time to load them back up and it was less than 5 minutes to get them all on and ready to hit the road. There were other 4-bike racks on the website, but this one had enough great reviews that I felt comfortable making the purchase. After the fact, I'm very glad I did! I can't imagine the $800 rack can be that much better than this, and I highly recommend this for anyone looking for a 4-bike platform rack. I will definitely recommend this rack and etrailer.com to everyone I know.


Comments
This is an awesome bike rack. At 52 and 115 pounds I can load and unload the bikes myself.That said, even with a lock on the rack securing it to the hitch, someone stole the rack off the back of our car over night. Just wanted to warn the rest of you as I order another.

Loads and unloads bikes super fast, and holds them firm. Wish I would have purchased this a long time ago instead of struggling with my old frame mount rack. I actually ride more because I don't dread having to load. Adjusts to different bikes easily. Time will tell if the fittings, springs, straps hold up to weather (I leave it on car). It is fairly large and heavier than the more expensive 4 bike racks (it's mostly steel vs. composite plastic), so if you are going to take it off hitch and store it - be prepared. Only recommendation I have is to add softer foam on the frame bar for traveling on rough roads.


Comments
The rack works well. Use it often. 4 bikes is key.Since I dont leave it on the hitch, my only issue with it is the weight when taking it on and off. But I knew that going in, and was working to a price point, which precluded lighter manufacturers.

I love my Swagman XTC4 4-Bike Rack. Very simple to put together. In less than an hour you are done. The quality and finish of the rack is superb. You can put different size bikes from children to adult without a problem. Bikes are secure, I have driven at highway speeds without any concern at all. I had a two pole hanging type bike rack before this one and the bikes were getting scratched and I was always concerned of them falling off. The swagman bike rack folds away nicely when not in use and it fits perfectly on my 2005 Honda pilot. You will not be disappointed. I highly recommend this product.

The best Bike Rack I ever purchase.

I can't believe how quickly I received the bike rack. I ordered it on Monday and got an email Monday that it was shipping. The package arrived at my house on Wednesday; 2 days! I put it together today and installed it to check it out. Easy assembly especially after reading assembly comments and suggestions online while I was shopping. Best advice was to put it on the vehicle before assembling the remaining parts as the vehicle becomes your second set of hands to hold it. I think this will be perfect for our set of mountain, ladies, and kids BMX style bikes as it was tough to load all the different types on my last hanging rack.


Comments
Ive used the rack for both trips around town as well as 2 day trips to and from the mountains. Its really solid and holds the bike securely so I dont worry about them at all. Folds up easily when the bikes are removed and then easy to relower when needed again.Really, the only downside is the weight when putting it on the vehicle and taking it off. Its still a one person job and the strength of the unit is worth that. I knew that from other purchaser comments so its something I decided was worth it for the quality of the rack.

This bike rack is very solid and holds the bike very securely; not rattles, no wobbles, no scuffed bikes. It is a bit of a puzzle trying to get four bikes on the rack the first couple times but it is getting easier with practice. I have two adult bikes and two children's bikes which pretty much run the gamut on sizes and the rack holds the smallest just as well as the largest. As has always been my experience, the customer service from etrailer was extremely fast.


Comments
Just some kudos to Etrailer and Swagman: somehow the folding pin in my unit got a slight bend in it. After searching for a replacement pin locally in vain, I contacted Etrailer. Tamara responded immediately to my request, but couldnt locate the exact part. So she forwarded on my request to Swagmans home office. Dave at Swagman got right back to me, identified the exact part and sent out a replacement, no charge. He was quite surprised to learn the folding pin had failed. Needless to say, working with Etrailer and Swagman has been greatthey stand behind their products with AMAZING service!!!

Our Swagman XTC4 hitch bike rack works very well, but compared to our previous bike racks, it is extremely heavy and difficult to take on and off the vehicle. As such, my wife is unable to use the rack when I'm not around. It is too large to leave on the vehicle all the time, so unfortunately, we have not used it near as much as we had hoped to. Additionally, the clamps that hold the frame down rub on the frame during long trips, so we learned the hard way that you need to put some type of pad (towel, rag, etc) between the clamp and the bike frame to keep from rubbing off the paint on your bike. The assembly instructions that came with the bike rack were extremely difficult to use, so we ended up figuring it out on our own, after much trial and error. They need to significantly update their assembly instructions! We are in the process of evaluating other bike racks to see what else will meet our needs.


Comments
From what Swagman tells us, if theres an issue with the frame hooks causing wear on the bikes frame, its typically caused by the hooks being pushed down too hard. The wheel straps do the majority of the job of keeping the bikes on the rack, the frame hooks are used to keep the bikes upright. The hooks only need to be pushed down far enough to touch the bike frame, and no farther than that.

Not good! Weve taken it off of our vehicle and are looking at other brands that are easier to use, weigh less and arent so big and bulky.
John - 01/25/2020

I'm sorry to hear the Swagman XTC4 isn't working out as you hoped. For a 4-bike rack that weighs less, I recommend the Hollywood Racks Destination 4 Bike Rack # HR4000
Hollywood Racks Destination Bike Rack for 4 Bikes - 2" Hitches - Frame Mount
$349.99
. This rack comes in at 42 lbs compared to the XTC4's 59 lbs. If you're looking for a bike rack with more options and is still a platform carrier, I recommend the Hollywood Racks Sport Rider SE 4 Bike Platform Rack # HR1400Z
Hollywood Racks Sport Rider SE Bike Rack for 4 Bikes - 2" Hitches - Frame Mount
$499.99
. This racks 2-piece design allows it to carry 2 bikes or 4, depending on the amount of space you need. The 2 piece design also makes the rack easier and lighter to install when in the 2 bike configuration.

This trailer is awesome. After owning it for 5 months I can say that it holds 4 bikes without problems. it is sturdy, well made and It holds very different types and sizes of bicycles which is my case. Cons: You cannot open the back door of your car when the bicycles are in place or when the trailer is completely folded. The trailer has two positions in which it can be partially unfolded and you can open the rear door of your car or suv though. Other brands do, with the disadvantage of not being able to carry four bicycles comfortably. I recommend this product for people in need to carry four bicycles !

Product is heavy duty. As with all bike racks the first use takes some time to get bikes organized and placed in the correct order but after that it is a breeze. Works fantastic. Tremendous customer service by etrailer. Some parts got lost in shipping (no fault of etrailer) but they sent out replacements ASAP. Don’t usually see great customer service and great prices you can only get one or the other but they nailed it!!

As our family has grown, so have our bikes. We needed an upgrade from our frame mount rack. The XTC4 was an easy decision based on the many product reviews and some careful research. First, shipping was amazing! I ordered it on a Monday, and it was at my door the next day. Assembly took about an hour. Setting up and adjusting for four bikes took about another hour to make sure all bikes would go on and off the same way each time. It fits our fleet of mountain bikes nearly perfectly. It also fits behind our 2012 Honda pilot with room to spare when folded upright. Great product, awesome shipping!

Bike rack is great, we like mounting them lower than the other type of ack that makes you try to get the bars woven through the frames. The rack had a bent bar and retailer shipped us a new one very easily with no questions asked as soon as I emailed them with the problem. New one came quickly and they’ve been a breeze and knowledgable to work with.

We bought Swagman XTC4 Hitch Bike Rack from etrailer about two years ago. Waited this long because we wanted to try it out really good. So far it has been working great! It is little on the heavy side and may require another person to help you out. This is not a concern for me since I bike with my family and either both my sons (age 14 & 16) help hook it up into our outback or one of them help me. I was really impressed with etrailer customer service, which is Top Class and that was one of the main reason I went with etrailer. I highly recommend this product and etrailer and will checkout etrailer for future purchases. Thank you

A great value purchase. The bike rack is sturdy with solid construction. It's a beast! I do prefer this platform style when compared to the hanging racks. Having the bike supported at three points provides a stable and worry free car ride. I do have one bike with "fat tires" which did not fit into the wheel trays of this rack. HOWEVER, Swagman does sell a Fat Bike Wheel Tray for $40 which fits this rack and swaps out easily. Problem solved. Now this rack is perfect!



- S64665
by:

Having two children the sliding trays make it great to fit all sized bikes, and it easily adjusts, so this works perfectly for our family. For the price this bike rack is awesome. You are able to easily move it up / down to access the tailgate without taking it off of the car. I’ve already recommended this to several of our friends.

Just finished installing and setting up this rack on a 2020 Traverse. The only issue I had was getting the locking pin in. Not the racks fault. The trailer light plug was about 1/2" too close to get the pin in straight and have the key on the side it's supposed to be on. The plug is on a steel tab, I just bent it back a little. Other than that I had all four bikes set up and wheel cradles bolted in place in 20 minutes. Once you know how to like things up it will be a matter of minutes to load and unload. Seems rock solid. Repeat purchaser from etrailer and will continue to use them for everything related.

Very solid rack, easy to assemble and load (once you figure out your own jigsaw puzzle of bike combos). Is definitely heavy, but that goes with the territory. Excellent info on etrailer site, and no problems with ordering or shipping.

This platform bike rack is fantastic! It took a little bit (of patients) to put together, but was easy over all. At times it was nice to have a second person around - nothing major. Smaller Kids bikes will struggle with this as the tires will go through the slot. I have heard a few people getting something accross the center to keep the tires up. (like a heavy duty elastic/bungee cord). I suggest adding some reflective tape in some spots once loaded. This will help make it more visible loded & empty. Great Product for the cost! Highly recommended.

Have only had a short time, but so far I am pleased with this rack. Two observations just as a heads-up to potential buyers, not as criticisms: 1) It is quite heavy - but I expected that with a 4-bike rack. I can get it into and out of the hitch on my vehicle solo but I can imagine that it could be challenging as a one-person job for some. 2) It was definitely a some-assembly required item - but the directions that came with it were clear and the assembly was pretty straightforward. As far as loading bikes on the rack, after initial sizing adjustments for your particular bikes, it is a breeze to load and unload bikes - much less work than my hang-from-frame type hitch-mounted racks that I've owned previously or remove-front-wheel/car-top type racks. Bikes seem secure and stable when driving. I haven't had mine fully loaded with four bikes of various adult and kid sizes and gone on a long road trip yet, but my experience with a couple of bikes at a time on 50-mile-ish trips leads me to think this rack will do the job well.


Comments
Still a solid rack 1 year in - allows me to haul a variety of different bikes everyone in my family of four has a different size, I have more than one and adjust things pretty quickly and easily to fit the different bikes.

So far I love the item right off the bat . Gave me exactly what I was looking for in a tailor. Not to heavy. Relatively easy to put together. Gave me access to my truck window which I desperately was looking for . The only thing is the hitch anti rattling bolt with the lock because it come with 2 is to long for my truck as the hitch trailer light adapter is in the way so making it impossible for me to use this feature. Not sure why they would make this one bigger then the no lock one. My suggestion would be to have a smaller lock so it will fit. Not sure if there is an alternative option for this as this was one of thr nice features that this trailer came with. Other than that I'm very pleased so far

The platform looks really good on the car. Easy to assemble but will require an extension to Your hex key so keep that in mind. Very quiet and practically no rattle sound or any unwanted movement. Bikes do look very secure and do not move at all. Very good product for the price.

  • Comparing Hollywood Racks Destination vs. Swagman XTC 4-Bike Rack
    The Swagman XTC4 4-Bike Rack # S64665 and Hollywood Racks Destination 4-Bike Rack # HR4000 are two of the best values in regards to 4-bike racks, and when taking everything into consideration I highly recommend the Destination # HR4000. There are a number of reasons for this, starting with the fact that the Destination is going to be easier to load your bikes on because of its large and curved wheel trays compared to the hoops of the XTC-4 that make you plop the bikes in just right....

  • 4-Bike Rack Recommendation for Rear of Travel Trailer
    At the back of trailers the ride quality is much rougher than at the rear of vehicles due to the increased distance between the rear axle and the rear of the vehicle and the much less sophisticated suspension. It's not the way the rack attaches to the rear of the vehicle so much as it is the harshness that ends up stressing the rack too much. That is why you'd have to look into a different 4 bike rack for your travel trailer and not the XTC4 you mentioned. There are no platform racks...

  • Recommended Bike Rack and Hitch Receiver for 2018 Jeep JL Wrangler with E-Bikes
    For your 2018 Jeep Wrangler JL, the Draw-Tite Max-Frame Trailer Hitch Receiver - Custom Fit - Class III - 2" # 76104 is a great option made by the same manufacturer as Reese components. The Curt Trailer Hitch Receiver - Custom Fit - Class III - 2" # C13392 is also a great fit for your Jeep with the rear spare and has a thicker powder coat but a lesser tongue weight rating. Either option will work well for your bike rack. Both the Curt and Draw-Tite hitch receiver options will require...

  • Recommended 4-Bike Platform Rack That Allows 2012 Lexus GX 460 to Open Rear Door
    Thank you for all the information, it was very helpful. I went to our demo room to take some measurements of the Swagman XTC-4 # S64665 and based on those would not be able to confirm it would allow a 2012 Lexus GX 460 to open the rear door. If you use the attached photo (which shows the Swagman, but not on a Lexus GX 460) as a reference, you can see that at the highest point, the XTC-4 is going to be roughly 28" above the ground on a 2012 Lexus GX 460. Given a margin of error of roughly...

  • Will the Swagman XTC4 4-Bike Rack Fit a 2012 Toyota RAV4 with Spare Tire
    The Swagman XTC4 4-Bike Rack for 2" Hitches part # S64665 will fit a 2012 Toyota RAV4. That said, you would not be able to fold the rack up for storage because of the rear spare tire. However, if you were to add an extender/swing-away adapter you would be able to fold the bike rack up for storage and swing it away from the vehicle to get into the rear hatch. The most cost effective swing-away adapter we offer is the Yakima BackSwing Swing Away Hitch Extender part # Y02483 which will work...

  • Recommending Four-Bike Platform Rack Among Hollywood, Swagman and Malone
    The most bang for your buck is going to be the Hollywood Sport Rider SE # HR1400Z, which, like the Swagman Quad # S64692 and Malone Pilot # MPG2112-2115 is a tilt-away, fold-up rack that uses ratcheting hooks and wheel holders to keep the bikes steady. The Hollywood does this for less but still provides an anti-rattle device, a hitch lock so the rack is secured to your vehicle, and a cable lock to secure your bikes to the rack. So do the Swagman and Malone, though they are pricier....

  • Hitch Mounted 4-Bike Carrier Recommendation for a 2013 Honda Odyssey
    I have a solution for you, however, the Swagman XTC4 Bike Rack, # S64665, will most likely hit your bumper when folded up on your 2013 Honda Odyssey. The bike rack I recommend for you is the Swagman Quad 2+2 Bike Rack, # S64692. This bike rack measures 9 inches from the center of the hitch pin hole to the closest edge of the bike rack when folded up. To verify that this will work on your Odyssey, I recommend measuring from the center of the hitch pin hole on your trailer hitch to the...

  • Will Swagman XTC4 4-Bike Carrier # S64665 Allow Rear Hatch Access on a 2013 Toyota 4 Runner
    The Swagman XTC4 4-Bike Carrier for 2-inch hitches, part # S64665, does have tilting upright masts to allow hatch access when not loaded with bikes but the main horizontal structure can drop only to a level position (as with bikes loaded and going down the road). It does not tilt down below the level position. With your four bikes loaded you will not be able to open your rear hatch. A better option for rear hatch access is the Yakima HoldUp 2-bike carrier # Y02443 partnered with the...

  • Recommended 4-Bike Rack for a 2012 Coachmen Mirada
    I have two great 4-bike rack options for your 2012 Coachmen Mirada. The best one for you will really depend on what type of bikes you have. If you have kid's or women's bikes then you will want to go with a platform style bike rack, I recommend the Swagman XTC4 4-Bike Rack part # S64665 because it has an anti-rattle hitch lock to help stabilize the bike rack and your bikes. It also comes with a cable lock for your bikes to prevent theft. If you are not using the bike rack you can fold it...

  • Which 4 Bike Platform Rack is Better, The Swagman S64665 or the SportRack A30902
    I would choose the Swagman S64665 over the SportRack part # A30902LR in this case, hands down. The Swagman base is a bit heavier. They are both steel racks, so they would not hold up as well as an aluminum rack would, but I think the Swagman finish will hold up better. The biggest difference is the upright posts. The SportRack uses a tension knob that tightens a plastic clamp. The Swagman uses ratcheting hooks that lock into teeth along the uprights of the rack. People have trouble with...

  • Recommended 4 Bike RV Rack Or 5 Bike Vehicle Rack
    We have 5 bike racks, but they aren't for use with an RV. We have 4 bike racks that will work on a vehicle or an RV. I'll give you a recommendation for each and you can decide what you want to do. For an RV compatible bike rack, I recommend the Yakima LongHaul 4 Bike Rack - 2" Hitches # Y02476. This is a heavy-duty hitch rack that lets you carry 4 bikes on premium SuperCush anti-sway cradles with ZipStrip ratcheting straps. Dual arms provide excellent bike stability and fold down...

  • Finding Folding 4 Bike Capacity Platform Style Bike Rack to Clear Spare Tire of Jeep CJ
    In order to determine if a given folding bike rack would work, you'll need to measure rearward from the hitch pin hole in the receiver to the furthest rearward point of the spare tire. This distance needs to be less than the hitch pin hole to closest part of the bike rack dimension of the shank on the bike rack you choose. I've linked you to an FAQ article that shows how to do this. For instance, when folded up, the Swagman XTC4, part # S64665 has a hitch pin hole to closest part of...

  • Compatability of the Swagman XTC4 Bike Rack Mounted on a Travel Trailer
    The Swagman XTC4 Cross Country 2-Bike Rack, item # S64665, is not designed to be carried behind a trailer of any kind. The ride behind a trailer is significantly rougher than the ride when attached directly to the towing vehicle. The instructions for the bike rack state that, the purchaser is advised that the load created by rack and bicycles will exceed the strength of trailer or 5th wheel bumper, mounting location or the bike rack. The rack is not under warranty if mounted in this location. We...

  • Can a Hitch Extender be Used with Swagman XTC4 Trailer Hitch Mount Bike Rack on a 2008 Ford Edge
    I do not recommend using an extension with Swagman XTC4 bike rack # S64665. The issue is that the use of an extension, such as # HE06, reduces the tongue weight capacity of the trailer hitch by 50 percent. The Class III, 2 inch trailer hitches for your 2008 Ford Edge have a tongue weight capacity of 350 pounds up to 400 pounds (for the Curt hitch). Using the adapter will reduce the capacities to 175 pounds or 200 pounds for the Curt hitch. The rack itself weighs 60 pounds. This means...

  • Can the Swagman XTC4 Bike Rack Hold a Kids 18 Inch Bike
    As long as the tire diameter on the smaller brakes is at least 15 inches then you won't have any trouble fitting the kids' bikes on the Swagman XTC4 # S64665. I have linked a video review of this rack for you. Another option to consider is the Hollywood Racks Sport Rider, # HR1400Z. This rack can actually be used as a 2 or 4 bike carrier. Then to use it with 16 or 18 inch bike wheels you would just need adapter # HRSW-ADP-2. I have linked a video review of this bike rack as well.

  • 4-Bike Platform Style Bike Rack that Will Clear the Spare Tire on a Jeep Wrangler
    I haven't heard anyone report use of the rack on a Jeep Wrangler. Keep in mind that the 12-3/4 inch clearance measurement for Swagman XTC4 4-Bike Rack for 2" Hitches - Platform Style Item # S64665 is for just the bike rack. The handle bars and pedals of the nearest bike will still be closer to the back of the vehicle. Fitting a platform style rack on a Jeep Wrangler can be a challenge. I need to know the distance from the center of the hitch pin hole back to however far is required to...

  • Trailer Hitch and Bike Rack Recommendations for a 2012 Coachmen 292BHDS Travel Trailer
    Only certain bike racks can be used on the back of a trailer or RV. I have included a link to the options for you. The Swagman XTC4, # S64665, cannot be used at the back of a trailer or RV. If your trailer has a 4 to 4-1/2 inch square steel bumper that has a continuous weld then you can use # S80600 and you will not need a hitch. I have linked the instructions for you to view. If you want to go with one of the hitch mount options then you must have a 4 inch square continuous welded...
