Padded, Ratcheting Hooks

Swagman Nomad 2-Bike Carrier

The Nomad's mast has a pair of ratcheting hooks that hold your bikes securely by the top tube. And because they move independently, you can carry bikes of different shapes and sizes. The hooks have soft padding that won't scratch or scuff your bike's paint.

Sliding Wheel Hoops

Swagman Nomad 2-Bike Carrier

The rack has wheel hoops that provide a stable base for mounting your bikes. Hand knobs let you easily slide the hoops along the tray to accommodate your bike's wheelbase. Each hoop has a ratcheting strap that secures your bikes' wheels during transport.

Folds for Cargo Access and Storage

Nomed 2-Bike CarrierSwagman Nomad 2-Bike Carrier

You can fold the mast down with bikes unloaded for access to your rear cargo area. Simply pull the pin at the base of the mast and fold it down in either direction. You can also fold the wheel trays up to get them out of the way at the campground, or to create a smaller footprint for storage. Just pull the pins at the junctions where the trays meet the rack, fold the trays up, and reinsert the pins into the provided holes.

Anti-Rattle Hitch Pin

Hitch Pin

The rack includes a threaded hitch pin and a clip that helps eliminate movement in the hitch receiver during transport. You can replace the pin and clip with an anti-rattle lock (sold separately) to secure the bike carrier to your vehicle.

This is one heavy duty Bike Rack. Work’s perfect on our 2022 Montana High Country 295 rl.


I have assembled the Swagman Nomad but have yet to actually use it. I intend to use this rack on the rear of a travel trailer so the RV durability will be tested. A couple of things to note: 1) the threaded hitch pin does not come with a lock; the lock will cost you an extra $37. 2) the rack does not come with cables to lock the bikes to the rack. 3) This is a pretty basic rack, not at the level of Kuat, Thule, Yakima and other high priced rack systems. That said, the Nomad does appear durable. We’ll see how it treats our bikes.


Very solid built, easy installation survived 1200 miles on the back of my fifth wheel with 2 bicycles on it.


Excellent bike rack! Extremely sturdy on rear of camper, with very little, if any, bikes bouncing around.


Easy assembly and very sturdy with 2 adult bikes. Allowed plenty of clearance between bikes and back of RV to avoid any rubbing or damage to RV during travel.


Well built. Perfect for my Keystone Montana 2020 295RL. Easy to install


We’ll built. Easy assembly. Fits my RV perfectly while lifting bikes for good wheel clearance. Good room between bikes too. I am very happy with it.


Great product


Works great






Review from a similar Nomad Bike Rack in RV and Camper Bike Racks

The swagman 2 bike bike rack is well designed, well made & fit my 5th wheel perfectly. We have 2 cruiser style bikes loaded onto it. Couldn't be happier.

  • Bike Rack Recommendation for E-Bikes with Fenders at Rear of Motorhome
    You have one of the harder setups to find a bike rack for since there aren't as many motorhome-approved bike racks available since the ride is much rougher at the rear of an RV. Since you have fenders that rules out the Escapee since you can't use fendered bikes with this rack. However, I have a great rack for you that is approved for motorhomes and hold the bikes by the frame, not the wheels. I recommend the Hollywood Racks Sport Rider SE Bike Rack for 2 Electric Bikes - 2" Hitches -...

  • Could Swagman Nomad Bike Rack Clear Rear Spare of 2008 Jeep Wrangler
    To determine if the Swaman Nomad part # S36FR would fit and clear past the rear door of your Jeep Wrangler you'd need to take one simple measurement. You'd need to measure from the center of your hitch pin hole out to the furthest point out on the rear spare. If that dimension is less than 11-7/8 inches this would fit and clear easily.

  • Can Swagman Nomad Bike Rack Carry 58 cm Road Bike
    The Swagman Nomad Bike Rack # S36FR you referenced will work great with a 58 cm road bike. The 52 figure you mentioned is actually the wheelbase max measured in inches that this rack will work with.

  • Hitch Bike Rack Recommendation For The Front Of My Forest River Surveyor Travel Trailer
    The are options to help you carry bikes on your Forest River Surveyor Travel Trailer. You can carry bikes on the trailer hitch, provided the hitch bike rack is rated to work on travel trailers. The Swagman XC2 is not rated for travel trailers, so it will not work. Swagman Nomad Bike Rack for 2 Bikes - 2" Hitches or RV Bumpers - Frame Mount, part # S36FR, is rated for use with travel trailers. It also has a maximum weight capacity of 35 bs per bike. I have included a product description...

  • How Can I Carry A Recumbent Bike And Normal Bike On Rear Of My Trailer
    Your best option will be the Swagman Nomad Bike Rack for 2 Bikes - 2" Hitches or RV Bumpers - Frame Mount, part # S36FR, you attached to your question. If your travel trailer's center of the hitch pin hole is less than 11-7/8", you should not have any issues with this hitch bike rack fitting your trailer. Your recumbent bike will need to have a wheelbase that is 52" or less. If your bike's wheelbase is longer, you will not be able to carry it on this hitch bike rack. Unfortunately, we do...

  • RV Approved Bike Rack that Can be Used at Rear of 2022 Keystone Bullet Crossfire 2430BH
    Since travel trailers like your 2022 Keystone Bullet Crossfire 2430BH have a rougher ride quality at the rear of them compared to passenger vehicles you would need a bike rack that is reinforced more to compensate for that like with the Swagman Nomad part # S36FR. This rack and all other racks that would work for you fit the 2 inch hitch size which is not what a Class II hitch is that you mentioned. Class II means 1-1/4 inch typically.

  • Swagman Bike Rack with More Shank Clearance than Swagman Traveler XC2
    We don't like to recommend hitch extensions for bike racks that are going to be used at the rear of travel trailers as a first option as they add quite a bit of movement and leverage on the hitch. So instead of using the # S64663 with one I would recommend going with a similar RV rated bike rack that has more clearance. Like with the Swagman Nomad part # S36FR which has 11-7/8 inches from the pin hole to the nearest portion of the rack which would much more easily fit without an extension.

  • Swagman Nomad Bike Rack Vs. Swagman Traveler XC2
    The Swagman Nomad Bike Rack for 2 Bikes, # S36FR and the Swagman Traveler XC2, # S64663 will each perform well. The difference is, if you already have a receiver hitch then select the Swagman Nomad, # S36FR. But, if you want a bike rack that bolts onto a bumper, select the the Swagman Traveler XC2, # S64663.

  • Hitch Recommendation for 2019 Jayco Jay Flight SLX 826 for Carrying Bike Rack
    For your 2019 Jayco Jay Flight SLX 826 the best hitch option would be the Curt multi fit hitch part # 13703 as it fits all frame styles that are between 22 and 72 inches apart and would work great to carry a bike rack like the Swagman Nomad part # S36FR which is approved for use at the rear of a travel trailer like what you have as well.

  • Recommended Padlocks for Locking Bikes on Swagman Nomad Bike Rack
    I recommend using the Master Lock Covered Solid Body Padlocks # 141T to lock the ratcheting arms on the Swagman Nomad Bike Rack for 2 Bikes # S36FR. These padlocks have a 1/4" diameter shackle and they use the same key since they come in a pair.

  • Can Tail Lights be Installed When Bike Bag is Over Bikes and Bike Rack
    The Curt Auxiliary LED Indicator Lights # C53201 looks like it's going to be your best option for adding lights to your Swagman Nomad Bike Rack # S36FR. The challenge, that you noted, is going to be making the lights visible with the bike bag installed. The only solution I can think of is to get 2 sets of the Curt light kit and install a second one on the bag itself somehow. Then when you install the bag you plug in the lights on the bag instead of the lights on the bike rack. Aside from...

  • Fitment of Curt RV Bumper Trailer Hitch Receiver to 2022 Jay Flight SLX7-174BH
    Yes, the Curt RV Bumper Trailer Hitch Receiver, # E-100 has a 2" square receiver opening and is ideal for hitch accessories such as bike racks and cargo carriers. This is intended for use on 4" square channel bumpers, which is most likely what your new 2022 Jay Flight SLX7-174BH will be equipped with. This has a 350 lb. tongue weight rating. I recommend you use this with the Swagman Nomad Bike Rack for 2 Bikes, # S36FR.

  • Platform Bike Rack Recommendation for 5th Wheel Camper
    You are correct that the Curt 2 Bike Platform Rack # C18085 isn't rated for use at the back of a 5th wheel camper but I have an alternative for you with the Swagman Nomad Bike Rack # S36FR instead. This can hold 35 lb bikes with up to a 52" wheelbase and up to 3-1/2" wide tires. Attached is a review video for you to check out.

  • Platform Bike Rack Recommendation to Fit Hitch at Rear of Fifth Wheel Trailer
    Sounds like you are looking for a platform bike rack that is fifth wheel trailer hitch compatible. For that we have the Frame mounted Swagman Nomad Bike Rack for 2 Bikes - 2" Hitches # S36FR which carries up to two bikes. However, if you want a tire-mount, I recommend the Lets Go Aero V-Lectric FAT PRO Bike Rack for 2 Electric Bikes - 2" Hitches - Wheel Mount # LGA77FR. It only touches the bikes at the tire like you said you wanted, which is a nice feature to protect delicate frame materials...

  • Bike Rack Needed for Kayak Clearance When Using the Stromberg Carlson Bike Bunk
    I do have a bike racks that you can potentially use with the Stromberg Carlson Bike Bunk # CC-275. Just for reference, the Thule T2 Pro XTR # TH83JV that you currently use measures 41-1/2" from the center of the hitch pin hole to the farthest edge of the bike rack. Your rack is not approved for RV use, so it can't be used on the Bike Bunk. The Stromberg Carlson # CC-275 requires bike racks to be approved for RV use to go on it's rack.

  • What Bike Rack Works with the Bike Bunk # CC-275 on My 2021 Airstream A-Frame Travel Trailer?
    I have a great bike rack solution for you. With the Sromberg Carlson Bike Bunk Trailer Mounted Bike Rack # CC-275, it requires a bike rack that is approved for RV use. Unfortunately, the Saris SuperClamp EX # SA4025F is not approved to use on your 2021 Airstream Caravel A-frame travel trailer. For a great alternative, I recommend using the Swagman Nomad Bike Rack for 2 Bikes - 2" Hitches or RV Bumpers # S36FR along with the Bike Bunk.

  • Recommendations to Tow a Trailer and 2 Bikes with a 2018 Subaru Outback Wagon 2.5i Limited
    The Draw-Tite Max-Frame Trailer Hitch Receiver # 75673 is what I recommend for you to install on your 2018 Subaru Outback Wagon as it can easily tow a 1,500-lb trailer and hold 2 bikes. You will want to check your owner's manual though about the max Tongue Weight (TW) of your Outback Wagon. From what I found online it looks like it has a TW capacity of 200 lbs which, since a trailer's TW should be 10-15% of the loaded trailer weight, could be an issue if you are wanting to carry bikes as...

  • Options to Carry 2 Bikes on a Lance 1685 Travel Trailer That Has a 1-1/4 Hitch
    I have a few potential options for you, but we do not have any 1-1/4" bike racks that are rated for use with a travel trailer. Your first option would be to replace your 1-1/4" hitch with a 2" hitch. This can be done a couple of ways. The first would be using a frame mounted hitch like the Adjustable Width Trailer Hitch Receiver # C13702 (for frames 18" to 51" Wide) or # 13703 (for frames 22" to 72" Wide). You could also use the Curt RV Bumper 2" Trailer Hitch Receiver # E-100 if you have...
