Installed on a Grand design Imagine. It was fairly easy to install and it looks good. The bolts were sub standard after breaking two had to replace with stronger and one inch longer and I used thread lock nuts. The weight limit is low and is a factor when trying to find a bike rack. I found the lightest three bike rack I could find but when I installed it and put one cruiser bike on it I was within twenty pounds of the weight limit so only one bike could be carried and one lawn chair. I have a suggestion I know weight is always a factor but if the legs/post were a slightly thicker sturdier metal the weight limit could be increased to accommodate two cruiser style bikes. 773468

Does not fit far enough back on the trailer frame. Our existing bike carrier fits way to far forward and can't be used. We're going to try a different carrier bout as of now it's useless. 515704

I returned this item due to clearance issues. Although it may work well with a pickup it did not offer enough room between vehicles for 2 adult bikes. Etrailer being the great company they are agreed to return this and although one person I spoke to wasn't helpful his supervisor was able to help. I purchased 2 Thule roof mount racks and am satisfied. This has been the only time I've experienced any problem with Etrailer and it was handled quickly and effectively. 866360

Ask the Experts about this Swagman RV and Camper Bike Racks

  • 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 # S44FR 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 I Use The Swagman Straddler # S80503 With A Cargo Carrier?
    You could use a cargo carrier like our 24x60 Cargo Carrier # e98874 but I wouldn't recommend it because it weighs about 48 lbs and the capacity of the Swagman Straddler # S80503 is only 100 lbs. You wouldn't be able to load up much cargo before you went over the limit. It can be done but you cannot put more than 52 lbs of cargo on the basket. You can cut that down a little bit by getting an aluminum carrier like our 60x22 carrier # e98991. This carrier only weighs about 18 lbs which...

  • A-Frame Bike Rack Recommendation for Trailer that Has Limited Clearance from Propane Tanks
    I checked with Swagman and the amount of space on the frame of a trailer that the brackets of the Swagman Straddler # S80503 requires is 4-1/2 inches since that wouldn't be enough clearance for you the best option would be to use the Lippert Jack It Bike Rack part # LC429756 which attaches to the jack mount and gives you a 2 bike rack that will be held up above the propane tanks. Check out the review video I attached for this as well.

  • Height of the Swagman Straddler Part # S80503
    The distance from the top of the trailer frame to the top of the horizontal bar on the Swagman Straddler part # S80503 is adjustable from 29-1/2" - 35-1/2". I have attached a photo to assist as well.

  • Dimensions Between Center Tubes for the Swagman Straddler
    From the center of one upright tube to the center of the other upright tube on the Swagman Straddler # S80503 measures 21". I have attached a photo to demonstrate this.

  • Trailer Tongue Mounted Bike Rack Recommendation for Trailer with Limited Clearance
    Since you only have 2.5 inches of available space on the frame of your a-frame trailer the Swagman part # S80503 won't work BUT I have a great solution instead. Check out the Jack-It 2 Bike Rack for A-Frame Trailers # LC429756. This attaches between the trailer jack and the trailer instead so your limited frame clearance would not be an issue.

  • How to Use Thule T2 Bike Rack While Towing R-Pod Camper
    I may have a solution for you, however you will not be able to use the Swagman Straddler # S80503 referenced in your question with your Thule T2 Class Bike Rack # TH9044. The primary reason for this is that the Thule T2 Bike Rack is simply not rated for use on a trailer. Because a bike rack mounted on a trailer will be subjected to greater bounce and movement compared to that of a standard passenger vehicle, only certain bike racks are tested and approved for this use. As you also referenced,...

  • Is Swagman Straddler 2-Bike Carrier for A-Frame Trailers Compatible With Thule Helium 3-Bike Rack
    Yes, the Swagman Straddler - 2-Bike Carrier for A-Frame Trailers # S80503 will work with the Thule Helium Pro 3-Bike Rack # TH9043PRO. That said, this carrier is only designed for two-bike racks, and Thule states that the Helium should not be mounted on any trailer so if any type of damage were to occur on either product they would not be covered under the lifetime warranty so you would have to be okay with that type of risk if you want to use the Helium with an A-frame carrier.

  • How to Install a Bike Rack on a Prolite Mini 13
    As long as you have space on the a-frame for the frame brackets where the rails are between 12" - 52" apart then the Stromberg Carlson Bike Bunk part # CC-275 will work for you. The Swagman Straddler part # S80503 will work as long as you have space on the a-frame for the frame brackets where the rails are between 10-1/2" - 31" apart. We have not tested either of these on your Prolite Mini 13 so I cannot give you a definite yes or no answer. If you do not have space on the a-frame in...

  • Can I Use Swagman Straddler To Tow Swagman XC S64650-EXT Bike Rack On Travel Trailer
    Yes, you can use the Swagman Straddler part # S80503 to mount your Swagman XC-Extended Platform-Style 2 Recumbent Bike Rack part # S64650-EXT on the front of your travel trailer as long as you have the space and you do not exceed the Straddler weight capacity of 100 lbs. The weight of the Swagman XC-Extended Platform Style is 38 lbs itself and it's total weight capacity is 70 lbs so you could only use 62 lbs of that weight while using the straddler. The Straddler features an elevated hitch...

  • Does Skid Shield have to be Removed for a Front Hitch on a 2018 Toyota Tundra
    On the Curt front mount receiver # 31198 there is a note stating that the skid shield will either have to be removed or you can trim it and reinstall in on your 2018 Toyota Tundra. For the Draw-Tite receiver # 65080 we have a note stating that the skid shield must be removed but nothing about being able to reinstall it. Some customers have noted that they had to make or enlarge a hole on a bottom panel in order to be able to change the oil. You may also consider using the Bike Bunk,...

  • Solutions for Transporting 4 Bikes While Towing Trailer
    I do have a couple potential solutions for you, however all of our trailer tongue-mounted bike racks options like the Lippert Hitch-It # LC731138 or the Swagman Straddler # S80503 are only rated for carrying up to 2 bikes. There isn't a trailer tongue carrier available that can safely support 4 bikes. Depending on the size/weight of your trailer, a really nice option is the Swagman Trailhead 4 Bike Rack # S63390. This will attach to the 2" hitch receiver on your tow vehicle like normal...

  • Recommended Bike Rack Compatible with Stromberg Carlson Bike Bunk for R-Pod Trailer
    The Stromberg Carlson Bike Bunk Trailer-Mounted Bike Rack Carrier for A-Frame Trailers - 2"-100 lbs # CC-275 can fit any widths between 12 inches and 52 inches. The bars rotate so they are compatible with any width between but that will move the receiver either slightly forward or slightly back from the frame mounts. It can hold 100 lbs which will include the weight of the bike carrier. For instance the Swagman Trailhead # S63381 will take 32 lbs leaving 68 lbs for your bikes. You...

  • Best Bike Rack To Carry Carbon Fiber Frame Bikes On a Trailer
    The best bike rack we offer to carry carbon fiber frame bikes on a trailer is the Swagman Escapee 2 Bike Platform Rack part # S64693. The reason for this is because it has a wheel mount design which will be needed to ensure there is no damage to the carbon fiber frame. This is also the only true wheel mount bike rack we offer rated for use on trailers so it really is your only option. In order to use the Swagman Escapee 2 you have two options, on the rear of the trailer with the Curt...

  • Can the 8 Drop Dual Hitch Adapter Be Used for Towing
    I do have an option for you but none of the dual hitch adapters that provide adequate drop can be used for towing. Instead, you'd need to go with a standard ball mount with the drop you need like the Curt Ball Mount part # C45090. Then, you can carry the rod rack on the tongue of the trailer (if a-frame) with the Swagman Straddler part # S80503 or on the front of the vehicle with a front mount trailer hitch, the Curt Front Mount Trailer Hitch Receiver part # C31028.
