Surco Ladder-Mounted Bike Rack

Surco's ladder-mounted bike rack attaches to the vertical supports of your RV's ladder instead of to its rungs so that it can fit a wider variety of applications. In addition, the rack arms have a unique, built-in pivot feature that lets you swing them away from the ladder. Now you can maintain complete access to your ladder - as long as no bikes are mounted at the time - with no need to remove the rack.


Surco Ladder-Mounted Bike Rack Swing Away

To pivot the arms of your rack to the side, simply remove the pull pins from the top brackets of each arm, swing the arms out and replace the pins to secure. Now you have full use of your van or motor home ladder. To use the rack, pivot the arms back and secure them in place in the same manner.


Surco Ladder-Mounted Bike Rack Clamps

The arms of the rack attach to the ladder supports with sturdy, secure clamps that hold the rack firmly in place, eliminating the bouncing and jostling that can occur with racks that simply hook onto your ladder. Just attach the arms, individually, to the 1-inch-diameter posts of your ladder, and you're good to go.

Great. Weve hauled our 2 bikes all over the southwest with no problems. We especially like that the arms can be rotated out of the way which makes easy access to the ladder.

I have used the bike carrier multiple times in the past year including a 5 week road trip. It has held the two bikes I carry very securely and it was easy to get the bikes on and off. Overall very pleased with this product.

We have a large tandem that actually fits on the back of the trailer. Awesome product! 64999

Assembly was quick - directions suck a little - note: the arm with the "brand name sticker" goes on the left side as you look at the ladder. Works best if bike "seat bar" is placed in the right hand rest and the frame - (just above the derailer) is placed in the left hand rest. Bike tire when mounted almost blocks our (Freelance Class C) right turn signal - but not a real issue. Well designed because the arms and lock out of the way of accessing the ladder. Covered my ladder with black foam "pipe" insulation between the rungs firsts to prevent any scraping/noise from the bikes - worked well. Etrialer rocks too! Right parts, first time, very quick!! Would recommend both to anyone! 74877

The RV ladder mount bike rack was easy to mount and appears to be made of quality material. The 2 bikes that we will be using it for are 18 speed mountain bikes and they do not fit with both arms of the rack between the top and bottom frame of the bikes due to the sprockets and derailers. I have to mount the bikes on the racks with the seat post in one cradle which will work OK. 114145

The order was shipped quickly, and as it turns out, was complete. The day I received it, I couldn't find the mounting hardawre for the trailer hitch. In all, I sent Jason J three emails (about the hitch hardware) over the next few days, none of which were returned. I finally called and talked to a very helpful person named Steve. Within minutes he was able to inform me that there wasn't a separate box for the mounting hardware, but it was rolled up and placed inside the hitch receiver itself. Now I'm good to go, the quality is excellent as I have come to expect from ETrailer. Mark - 408075

A rubber button down multi holed strap broke and my bike is gone. I loved that bike. Cannot say I loved the rack. I noticed the design flaw but neglected to back it up with one of my own bungee cords. I should have been more careful. I had the bike two years and had to buy another one of lesser quality. The good model I had is no longer being made. The strap on the rack is awful though. 496080

I purchased this rack after spending considerable time on the phone with the eTrailer.com rep. She was very knowledgeable about all types of racks, including hitch and ladder racks. I might have gotten this rack for a few bucks cheaper on eBay, but the support from the rep more than makes up for that! The rack went on easily, although it was help to have a second pair of hands to hold the clamp during installation. The only problem I had was installing the two rack pieces in reverse. I wasn't aware until after I tried to pivot the rack off to the side that there was a definite left and right side. I don't think I saw anything about this in the instructions. But luckily, it was easy to remove and reinstall them on the correct sides. Our bikes (Trek) fit fine, although we had to remove my husband's water bottle cage, because it was installed on the vertical part of the frame where the bike rests on the rack. We reinstalled it on the diagonal part of the frame (as in product photo), where it doesn't interfere with the rack. We'll be heading out soon with our bikes on the rack and don't anticipate any problems. 56738

Thanks for the follow up. We used the rack a few times and it worked fine. However, we have since sold the RV it was attached to and left it on the rig for the new owners to enjoy.

High quality materials and has held up perfectly with 2 bikes and approx. 5 K miles. Would not hesitate to purchase this rack. 745739

This rack performs as advertised. It fit our trailer's rear ladder just fine and holds our two heavy bicycles without problems. The arms swing aside as needed to make the ladder accessible. I do add some additional cushioning material (large rags) to keep the bicycles from rubbing each other's paint off and to keep them from touching the camper finish.....but I think that is necessary with about any bike rack that suffers the up and down and side to side motion that the rear of a 23 foot trailer creates. It is no problem and works fine. Our bicycles are full-size adult bikes and we cannot hang them vertically, so have to hang them horizontally, which makes them a bit more susceptible to trailer pitch, roll, and yaw movements. But the rack holds them securely. 727681

The product looks to be constructed very well with good materials that won't rust. I read a review about someone's experience of having the bar bend down after use. This essentially happened to me on my first use. I mounted the bars as directed, and for my first trip with my 40' fifth wheel RV, I placed two Trek mountain bikes on the cradles and strapped them in with the short rubber straps. I used the one enclosed fiber strap as an additional tie down. I also had two U-joint bike locks of which one I could lock through the RV ladder, but the second one I had to settle on locking bike-to-bike. I got on the road, and about one hour into the trip, a kind soul gave me hand signals to let me know my bikes weren't doing well. I pulled over and inspected. One of the mounts on the right L-bar had managed to slip over a screw stop and fell off the L-bar. That bike held on to the RV ladder by the fiber strap and the U-lock. Fortunately, the bike didn't make contact with the ground. I later figured out that I should or could have tighten down the four mounts on the L-bars. They were pretty snug on the L-bar, but I thought they would be fine, and stopped by the end cap. But that end cap screw isn't very big. Also, the incident caused about a 1" bend downward on the right L-bar that I bent back into place. When I bring my RV back to home on my next trip, I'll make sure that I have a second strap for extra security and holding power on the RV ladder. I already tightened the mounts on the L-bar. I don't believe the directions that came with the bike rack talked about tightening the mounts, but make sure you do tighten them down! (That was my biggest mistake) The pins on top of the rack are very tight when you try to lock them into their receptacles. You probably will need a hammer to tap them in/out. There is a 70 lb limit for the rack, and was probably approaching the limit with my two mountain bikes. Sorry, no pics this time. I'll try to include pics the next time I'm out with my RV. 711209

I was able to install and use the bike rack on my RV ladder for 6 months. My only complaint about the product is that the rack itself began to bend over time, in spite of the fact that the weight of my two bicycles was below the limit advertised by the manufacturer. I have attached a picture that shows how the right side of the rack sagged over time, which makes me worry a little bit about using the rack going forward. 705154

This bike rack was a good buy. It holds our two bikes securely and is a lot quicker to load and unload than racks we've had in the past. It only holds two bikes, but that is all the weight that you ought to have on an rv ladder. 688185

The carrier has performed as expected and I have been very satisfied. Transferred it to another motorhome we just bought, and it went on without any problems.

Excellent bike rack! Was mounted on ladder on back of our camper. Best bike rack we have used. Unfortunately, tornado absolutely destroyed our camper, needless to say, the bike rack did not survive. Or maybe it did...all that was left was upside down frame with four wheels. No sign of bike rack. Fortunately we were not in the camper or would not be writing this. When we replace camper, will definitely purchase another. 665621

  • RV Ladder Bike Rack Recommendation for Mammoth Cabover Camper
    Since your ladder has tubes that are 1-1/2 inch in diameter and the Surco # SP501BR can only fit 1 inch diameter ladders the ladder rack you'd want is the Swagman # S80630 which attaches to the rungs of the ladder instead and your ladder diameter would not be an issue at all. I attached a review video for more info for you to check out as well.

  • How Far Does the Surco Ladder Mount Bike Carrier Stick Out From the Ladder
    I went out to our warehouse and measured the arms of the Surco ladder mount bike carrier, part # SP501BR. From the outer edge of your ladder to the furthest point of the rack is approximately 16 inches. I've attached a picture to show the dimension as well.

  • RV Ladder Bike Rack Recommendation for a Lance Model 1885 with 2 inch Ladder Supports
    I have a ladder rack bike rack solution for you, but the Surco 2 Bike Carrier # SP501BR that you referenced would not work for you since it is designed to work on ladders with 1 inch diameter supports and you have 2 inch diameter supports. There isn't an adapter available either. Instead you would want the Swagman RV Ladder Bike Rack part # S80630. This rack will hook on the rungs of your ladder and will provide you with a 2 bike rack.

  • Ladder Bike Rack Comparison: Swagman Bike Rack # S80630 vs. Surco Bike Rack # SP501BR
    The Swagman RV and Motorhome 2 Bike Carrier, part # S80630, and the Topline 2 Bike Carrier RV Ladder Mounted Bike Rack, part # SP501BR, are very similar and share many great features. I would be more inclined to purchase the # S80630 because it has reflectors on the ends of each of the arms, it has more padding on the rack to protect the ladder, and I prefer the style of strap that is used over the # SP501BR.

  • Choosing RV Ladder Mounted Bike Rack
    Of the ladder mounted bike racks we offer, the Surco # SP501BR model you referenced has the highest weight capacity at 75 lbs. Your combined bike weight is 77 lbs, so if you were to remove the seats from each bike, you'd probably get the load under the 75 lb weight capacity of the rack. Ladder mounted bike racks are pretty bare-bones, there's not much in the way of padding on them. You can always add padding to the rack. I've found that those pool noodle floatation devices work just...

  • Recommended Bike Rack for Carrying Adult Trike Behind RV
    We do have a couple options for standard hitch-mounted bike racks that are specifically designed for adult trikes, such as the Hollywood Racks Sport Rider # HR1000Z-R-TRKADP. The issue though, is that only certain bike racks are rated for use behind RVs and trailers, and the available trike racks are not rated for this application. This is simply because of the extra movement that occurs on a bike rack that is mounted to the rear of a trailer or RV, as opposed to behind a standard passenger...

  • Preventing Bike Movement on the Topline RV Ladder Mount Bike Rack
    Part of the problem might be that you are loading the bikes horizontally instead of vertically, Loading the bikes vertically will reduce or eliminate how much they overhang to the side of the 5th wheel. If little or no part of the bikes are sticking off to the side and susceptible to wind, they are less likely to move. Also, make sure the straps are as tight as you can get them. The tighter the straps are the less likely the bikes are to move. If possible, add another strap like # 753-2030-03,...

For this type of bike a better option may be a bumper-mount rack or a hitch-mount rack.

What I recommend is to use the bike rack you want to use (trailers and RVs can only be equipped with certain racks, see link) and relocate the license plate to an area of the vehicle, trailer, or RV that is more visible.

  • Stabilizing 2 Bikes On the Surco RV Ladder Bike Rack SP501BR
    The best way to help prevent your bikes from scratching each other would be to adjust the cradles so that your bikes would be as far apart as possible and then use the Curt Trailer Hitch Support Strap # 18050 to help keep them from moving. This will not necessarily guarantee that there will be no damage, as there is a lot of play at the rear of any RV, but this will definitely help.

    A ladder rack could be a viable solution, so long as the bike is not so long as to not provide enough clearance for bumps or inclines. If the bike can be transported when folded I do not see a potential clearance problem. There are other methods for transporting bikes on an RV, but since you are towing a vehicle, the ladder rack would probably be your best solution. I recommend the Surco 2 Bike Rack # SP501BR.

  • Can a Ladder Mounted Bike Carrier be Placed on Any Rung on an RV Ladder
    You can place a ladder mounted bike carrier, such as # SP501BR, on any ladder rung you wish. But the higher up you place it the higher you will need to lift the bikes to load/unload them. A car on a tow dolly should provide plenty of space between it and the RV though so you may not need to put the bikes too high on the ladder.

  • Can the Topline RV Ladder Bike Rack be Used with a Blue Ox Towing System
    Ultimately clearance would be determined would be dependent on width of the vehicle, length of the tow bar, hitch location on the RV etc. There is no way to say for sure if the ladder rack will allow enough clearance for tight turns. The rack is designed to be used with RVs that often flat tow a vehicle, so I doubt that it will interfere with most towed vehicles. But without testing it for your particular combination, I could not say for sure. You also have the option of using a bike...
