Swagman Around the Spare Deluxe

This convenient rack carries 2 bikes on your RV and provides clearance for a spare tire. Its sturdy steel construction has a black powder coat for corrosion resistance.


Anti-Sway Cradles

Swagman Around the Spare Deluxe Anti Sway Cradles

The anti-sway cradles rotate and slide along the dual arms to perfectly position your bicycles, reducing the need for a bike adapter bar. The cradles include durable rubber straps to hold your bikes firmly in place on the rack. Because the cradles secure each bike at three places (twice along the top tube and once along the seat post or down tube), rocking back and forth is virtually eliminated, preventing bike-to-bike contact.


Removable Pins

Swagman Around the Spare Deluxe Removable Pins

Removing one pin on each side of the rack allows easy access to the spare tire by removing the upright bars from the base of the rack.


U-Bolts

Swagman Around the Spare Deluxe U-bars

The rack installs on your RV with U-bolts that are designed to clamp around a 4" to 4-1/2" continuous welded square bumper.

Terrible product as it sits too low on the bumper. I mangled a bike wheel backing up to a slight swale. The bike wheel was only six inches off the ground, the swale was seven. My bad for backing up without a spotter but the bike rack is not adjustable & therefore worthless to me.

Not the wheel, ugh! Yeah, if it was taller, it definitely would have helped. You know, part # LA-102 is a ladder mounted bike rack that is adjustable for height. I bet if you used this, you wouldn't have that problem again.



by:

I am very satisfied with the bike rack. Instillation was simple. The package had been previously opened and was missing 2 nuts but I had them in the garage. The product stated it would not fit on a bike with less than 18” between the seat and handle bar post but I drilled 2 holes in the top cross bar and set them on an angle as allowed in the instructions and they fit my mountain bikes with a cradle of 14”. I added a web strap from the tire support post, over the tire and around the bike cross bars to eliminate any swaying which did not appear to be a problem even before the strap. My 2 mountain bikes weigh 35.5lbs each and appeared very secure for a 700 mile trip.



by:

Very well made easy to install. And works great for our 2 bikes. Very secure using straps provided with a couple additional small ratchet straps sold separately.

I dont use it a lot but have used it a few times putting 2 bicycles on it. And it held up great on the back of my pop up camper.



by:

Great price for a very good product.



by:

I just have one bike to carry on the back of my trailer and this works great for that. Fits nicely around the spare tire. I leave the bottom brackets on and when I need it, I put in the top vertical bars. My only issue is the vertical bars do not slip in very nicely (very tight fit), so I have to pound them down. Hasn't been an issue, but is a pain. It also seems to be holding up to the weather OK and only minor rust so far.



by:

So far - first trip out - we love it. Or bikes are a little different in design so it took some creativity to get them positioned on the carrier. The shape of the frame rests on the bike rack made this pretty easy, though. Definitely a plus.

Bike on!



by:

Good product, well made. Took me less than an hour to install. Have a small travel trailer, just me and my wife. We are both retired. Wanted to take bikes with us when we travel.Don't have a lot of room on the rear bumper so this was the best product for my needs. Pictures of the finished job included.



by:

We have a 2019 Imagine camper with a spare tire on the back bumper. The description of this product said it would fit on our bumper with the spare tire. We tried every way we could and the woman's bike would not fit on there even with a frame adaptor bar attached to the bike. And with two bikes on the carrier, it was pushed up against the spare tire. The product is well made and I am sorry it would not fit our need.

I am sorry that the bike rack did not meet your needs. The maximum diameter of the bike frame can be no more than one and a half inches. Customer service will be in touch.



by:

The product is exactly as advertised.



by:

This bike rack was a perfect fit on the bumper of our RV! It sits just outside our spare tire and is very sturdy and solid. Can’t wait to take our bikes on our next trip!



by:

Easy to put together. Easy to load he bikes. Product was perfect for our need.-



by:

I was a bit disappointed in this product. I was hoping to use it to tote our bicycles south for the winter. Unfortunately the design of our bikes, both Giant brands, do not work on the rack because of the way the cross bars are configured. They do not sit well on the rack. I'm guessing you have to have bikes with a single straight bar between the seat and the handlebar post. Ours do not, especially my wife's bike.

Yes this bike rack does require the bike to have a level horizontal bar to hang from. The good news is there are bike frame adapters that will give you a level hanging surface such as part # Y02531. This yakima bike adapter bar fits most bike frames because it extends from 14 1/2 to 31 1/2 inches.



by:

I like the basic design, but I really dislike the J hooks at the top. When you have a bike or two, hanging across the top, it is very inconvenient and time consuming to screw the bottom brace onto the metal rod of the J hook extending down.... all the way till the bike is tight. I went to a hardware store and bought 4 1 1/2 inch spacers and inserted them over the screw rod and that made it much better. It will still take 10 minutes to get the bikes off - but it's better than it was. I wouldn't mind paying more for an easier to use product.

its still the same. I still use them and do recommend them.



by:

Easy to install ,looks good,but hard to fit two old school 26" bikes
on racks.needed more length.Still i would buy again,good for newer bikes,Quality material.

fixed the tight threads on the hold downs,and it works great,i still would buy it again.very nicely made.



by:

Viewing the installation video before installing made the installation quick and easy.
The product is well constructed.
Packaging of the product is first class.
I will order all my travel trailer accessories from ETrailer.

Just Great Holding up well



by:

eTrailer continues to be my 1st thought for RV needs. Selection, price, and customer service. I had selected a different rack, partially installed it, and found that it wouldn't work for my needs. eTrailer cheerfully accepted it back and exchanged it for this rack. This one has held up very well for nearly a year now and a 2000 mile road trip carrying two adult bikes. I did add a ratcheting strap from the upper part of the rack, around the spare tire, and to the bumper to minimize bouncing.



by:

Unfortunately, I was not able to use the product. When attempting to move the spare tire to the center of the bumper so I could use the rack, the tire slipped out of my hand and snapped off the whole bottom of the tire carrier.

However, I just want to express how easy they made it to return the item. I live in my travel trailer full-time and have not yet been able to set up Wi-Fi, so I have not been able to use my printer. Ashley E. worked with me until I finally got the UPS label printed and successfully returned the bike rack. Ashley E. was very helpful and considerate while I was having my ‘issues’.

Will definitely do business with etrailer again.



by:

As of right now the install was very easy to do by myself. I was very pleased with how everything fit correctly too. Looking forward to putting our bikes on it next time we go out to our campsite.



by:

This bike rack exceeded our expectations. Easy to install and our bikes are secure. Last trip was from our home in Riverside county up to a campground in Pollock Pines. Not one issue.



by:

This bike rack works great on our fifth wheel. It was very easy to install and is not a real heavy product. We are limited to 135 lbs. on our rear bumper. This rack is just under 25 lbs. so we were able to mount 2 bikes on it and still be under our limits.

As always, etrailer delivery is fast. We love the videos they post of their products that we can review before we buy.



by:

just put it on the camper today 5-26-20,seems like a well built product. Fits two bikes nicely and well padded. will be going over the road for a couple of weeks and I think the rack will do fine holding bikes.Product is just what I wanted not too big and not too small and built well.Would recommend purchase good price and great seller fast shipping.



by:

Frame hardware mounted easily. Configuration is what I needed. However, means to hold bikes to rack is intolerable. What is used is lock nuts encased in a knob. Understand the reasoning, but the threads are over 2 inches long. It takes forever to lock on a bike. Also, one knob broke off on first use. Bike attachment method needs re-work.



by:

This product was delivered on time as promised and was exactly as described, with very good videos and PDF File Instructions at the etrailer website. What more could anyone ask for ???!!!

Diane E.

5/10/2014

Didnt work really well for us. Not very heavy duty and tendency to get lightly warped. For light use, it probably works ok.



by:

I like the over the rear tire mounting capability for my RV and the fact that it can be easily removed by pulling the two quick pins on the bottom. This allows me to fold down the hinged spare so I can access the rear storage compartment. I also like the ease of loading and securing the bikes on the rack mounting arms.



by:

Ordering equipment sight unseen is a bit risky, but it's always a pleasure when the goods arrive as promised and the quality turns out to be better than expected. The around-the-spare-tire bike rack is a simple design and installation is a breeze. It seems sturdy enough, but we'll have to wait for some better weather to give it the first road test. All-in-all I'm very pleased with purchase, and the customer service provided by the folks at etrailer.com was excellent as usual.

  • Bike Rack to Fit Around Spare Tire on Motorhome
    Although we don't have a single bike rack that's designed to fit around the spare tire on a RV/motorhome, the Swagman # S80501 Around the Spare Mighty Rack would work well for you, assuming that your RV/motorhome has a continuously welded steel bumper (not an aluminum or spot welded steel bumper.)

  • Weight of Swagman Around the Spare Deluxe 2 Bike Rack # S80501
    The Swagman Around the Spare Deluxe 2 Bike Rack # S80501 referenced in your question weighs just about 22 pounds. It can safely secure up to 2 bikes that weigh 35 pounds each. The rack is designed to mount to a 4 to 4-1/2 inch square continuously welded steel bumper. If this is what you have on your Grand Design the rack will work perfectly. I have attached a short video demonstration that you can check out as well.

  • Weight Capacity of Forest River Flagstaff Ultra Light 4 Inch Bumper
    The Swagman Around the Spare Deluxe 2 Bike Rack for RV Bumpers # S80501 with two standard bikes is not too much weight for your Flagstaff Ultra Light 4 inch bumper. The rack weighs about 20 lbs and can carry two bikes up to 35 lbs each. I assume you are asking because Forest River doesn't recommend carrying anything on their Flagstaff Ultra Lite bumpers but people have been doing so for years without issues. The manufacturer doesn't even recommend mounting a spare tire to it and yet...

  • Spare Wheel and Tire Clearance for Swagman Around the Spare Deluxe Bike Rack
    The spare tire clearance for the Swagman Around the Spare Deluxe 2 Bike Rack for RV Bumpers # S80501 that you referenced is 12-3/4 inches. That means that you'd have 12-3/4 inches from the rear edge of the bumper to the vertical upright of the bike rack. That's wider than most trailer tires so you should be fine unless you have a large spare cover on the wheel. I attached a review video for this rack for you to check out as well.

  • Bike Rack Solution Coleman Sante Fe Pop Up
    I'd go with the bumper mount at the rear of the pop up. Between the trailer and the tow vehicle is a viable option but since some setups have limited clearance here it's harder to know for sure if that's a feasible option. As long as you have a 4 inch boxed bumper the part # S80501 would fit and work well to carry a couple bikes.

  • Can the Swagman Around the Spare Deluxe # S80501 be Used on a 2019 Viking 1706XLS Pop Up Camper
    The Swagman Around the Spare Deluxe # S80501 is actually a universal fit so you should be able to use it on your 2019 Viking 1706XLS without any problems! It is compatible with 4" - 4-1/2" square continuously welded steel bumpers and has 12-3/4" of spare tire clearance. Attached is a picture with dimensions so that you can ensure it will fit perfectly with your spare tire.

  • Will Bumper Mounted Bike Rack Damage 5th Wheel Bumper
    RV bumpers that are square with all for sides continuously welded are technically a part of the trailer's chassis and can carry a decent amount of weight. Installing the Swagman Around the Spare part # S80501 with your spare would not be an issue at all. As long as you stay under the capacity for the carrier (which you said you are currently) you will be totally fine. I attached a review video link to this page for you to check out as well.

The rack fits 4 inch or 4-1/2 inch square continuously welded (not spot welded) steel bumpers. If you click the provided link, you can see a product demonstration video featuring the # S80501 rack.

  • Does Swagman Around the Spare bike rack part # S80501 Come With Strap for Securing Front Wheel

  • What Type of Bumper Can be Used with Swagman Around the Spare Deluxe 2 Bike Rack for RV Bumpers
    Thanks for the picture of your bumper! It is considered continuously welded so you can use the Swagman Around the Spare Deluxe 2 Bike Rack for RV Bumpers # S80501 that you referenced. Continously welded is another way of saying "boxed" frame which means it has metal on all 4 sides.

  • Could Two of the Swagman Around the Spare Deluxe 2 Bike Racks Fit on RV Bumper
    Yes, you could install two of the Swagman Around the Spare Deluxe 2 Bike Rack for RV Bumpers # S80501 on the rear bumper of an RV as long as there was clearance for both racks and spare to fit next to each other. From a capacity point of view you'd be fine.

  • Rear Bumper Mounted Bike Rack for 1995 Starcraft Tent Trailer
    As long as the bumper on your Starcraft is 4 inches square and is continuously welded (not spot welded) the would be a good solution for you. The rear most upright bar could simply be left off to allow clearance for the spare tire. Swagman also makes a rack that is specifically designed to fit around a spare tire, part # S80501. Unless you have a strong preference for the platform-type # S80600, the Mighty Rack might be a better alternative for you. For install details for either rack,...

  • Around the Spare Tire Bike Rack for a Pop-Up Camper
    The RV bumper rack that goes around the spare tire, part # S80501, requires a square tube bumper to properly support the bikes. Most pop up campers have a c channel steel bumper and would not be a good attachment point for this bike rack. If your camper is not a square tube bumper, we do offer towing bike racks (see link) that would put the bikes between the camper and the vehicle. This may be a good choice for you.

  • Will Swagman Bike Rack Fit Spare Tire with Hard Plastic Cover
    A cover being installed on your spare tire would not prevent the Swagman Bike Rack part # S80501 from installing. The rack would still fit and work well. You might still compare the dimensions in the picture I attached with you spare tire so that you can know for sure if the rack will install.

  • RV Bike Rack Recommendation for an RV with a Rear Mounted Spare
    We have a bike rack solution for an RV that will mount around a spare tire (# S80501), but we do not offer a rack that is RV approved that will mount directly to a spare. As long as you have a 4 to 4-1/2 inch continuous welded bumper on your RV this rack would work well for you. Check out the review video I attached as well.

  • RV Bumper Bike Rack Recommendation for a 2016 Jayco Jay Flight SLX 267BHSW
    For a bike rack that will fit your bumper and fit around your rear spare you would want the Swagman part # S80501. This would be perfect for your two bikes and wouldn't cause any issues getting around the spare. The weight capacity for the rack is also 70 lbs for two bikes. You would have to contact Jayco to determine if the bumper has enough capacity. But if the bumper is a square bumper 4 inch or 4-1/2 inch that is continuously welded this will fit and work well.

  • Can I Mount Swagman RV Bumper 2 Bike Rack # S80500 to Square Bumper on 2010 Puma Travel Trailer
    The item you selected, Swagman RV Bumper 2 Bike Rack # S80501, is designed to attach to a 4 to 4-1/2 inch continuous welded square steel bumper like the bumper on your 2010 Puma travel trailer. It is not designed to attach to C-channel bumpers. You will want to check the owners manual of your Puma travel trailer for load carrying capacities of the camper and the rear bumper.

  • Tips for Lowering Weight So that Bike Rack and Bikes Stay Under Bumper Capacity
    So basically you have to find a way to shed 12 lbs so that you don't void the warranty of the bumper. If you won't be using the hitch you could remove it temporarily and the take the seats off of the bikes and that would put you right at 110 lbs. If you aren't using both of the uprights on the bike rack you could remove one to save some weight as well. Another option that would save you almost the exact amount of weight you would need would be to go with the # S80501 as it only weighs...

    18 inches from the center of a hitch pin hole to out and around a spare is a pretty large distance.

  • Bike Rack Recommendation for Fitting Around RV Spare at Rear of RV
    If your RV has a spare mounted at the rear and you have a 4 inch by 4 inch rear bumper the bike rack part # S80501 would be a fantastic option as it is designed to fit around spares. Otherwise we have the Swagman bike rack # S64940 which has a distance of 12-1/2 inches from the hitch pin hole to the back of the upright mast of the rack which would fit around most spare.

    If the bumper the carrier is attached to is a continuously welded (not spot welded) steel (not aluminum) bumper and the 70 lb weight capacity (35 lbs per bike) is adhered to like our product description states, the rack will not damage the bumper. If the rack is attached to an aluminum, plastic or steel bumper that is not fully welded all the way across, the weight of the rack and the bikes can damage the bumper, but if the rack is installed and used properly, there will be no worries...

    The RV Bumper 2 Bike Rack, # S80501, has a 12 inch clearance between the bumper and the upright bars. As long as your spare tire and swing down tire holder do not extend past 12 inches from the bumper, then this bike rack will work. You will not be able to utilize the swinging motion of the tire holder unless you completely remove the tire holder. I have attached a photo showing the dimensions of this bike rack for you to check out.

    It would be possible to mount a tow bar and the Swagman 4 Bumper Mount Bike Rack, # S80600, on a motor home, but an issue that you could run into is limited turning clearance for the towed vehicle. The Swagman bike rack will stick out 34 inches from the bumper. If you find yourself is a tight turning situation, the vehicle may hit the bike rack or bikes depending on the length of your tow bar and the position of the bike rack on the bumper. A better option would be to carry the bikes on...
