Swagman Tailwhip on truck

The Tailwhip padded tailgate bike rack is a quick and easy alternative to fork blocks. It saves you from having to remove the front wheels on your bikes and from drilling into your truck bed. And if you normally use a hitch rack, but will be using your hitch to tow, this rack lets you bring up to 5 bikes as well. Hook-and-loop straps secure your bikes to the rack and the center flap provides access to your tailgate handle.


Anchor Points

Swagman Tailwhip anchor points

A series of sewn-on loops along the top of the rack provide anchor points for your bikes. Use the included hook-and-loop straps to secure your bikes to the tie-down points to prevent your bikes from shifting during transport. Additional straps (sold separately) are available if you lose one.


Easy Access to Tailgate Handle

Swagman Tailwhip tailgate handle

The center flap lets you access your tailgate handle without having to remove the pad so you can lower your tailgate. The flap secures with a hook-and-loop fastener.


Heavy-Duty Construction

Swagman Tailwhip construction

The rack is made of heavy-duty, ballistic tarpaulin. A high-density foam core protects your tailgate and your bikes from dents and dings. The fleece lining provides a soft, smooth surface that won't scratch or scuff your tailgate.


Simple Installation

Swagman Tailwhip installed on truck

To install the rack just slide it over your tailgate and use the 3 integrated tie-down straps wrap to secure it in place.

This is a great product and really easy to use. I love they my bikes don’t take up the entire bed and that they don’t stick out 6 feet past my bumper. 868896

2016 Toyota Tundra

Product was delivered sooner than expected and is of good quality. Fits 2016 Tundra perfectly. Placement took less than 5 mins, and removal takes about 10 seconds. Mine came with a click strap on the flap where the handle/camera are, which is used to fold flap back over tailgate leaving the camera available for use but securing the flap on backside of tailgate. The video does not show that but to me is a great feature. 680728

This product fits over the tailgate of our full size pick up. We bought this product because we wanted to take our bikes with us on our camping trips. We had a receiver bike rack but needed some way to carry our bikes securely while pulling our travel trailer. We also wanted to be able to carry our grandkids bikes. We have secured at least 5 bikes with the Swagman Tailwhip Tailgate Pad and Bike Rack. The only problem we had was that the velcro tie downs didn't fasten as tight as we would have liked. We have used additional bungie cords to keep the bikes in place. That is the reason this review did not get a 5 star. We are very happy with this product. 485956

This product has held up well. We still recommend it.

We love this product and use it often. My only frustration is that I have trouble feeding the straps up through the tailgate. You need a second person or someone with long arms to do it easily.

Review from a similar Tailwhip in Truck Bed Bike Racks


The black strap fasteners/clamps are sewn on the inside of the bed which makes it impossible for one person to put it on and difficult for two people. It would be better if they were on the outside of the truck bed. 621708

Review from a similar Tailwhip in Truck Bed Bike Racks


Very satisfied with this product! It is plug & play out of the box, it takes 1-2 minutes to install, and it fit my Honda tailgate like a glove. The cover is lightweight yet fully protects my trucks finish. The Swagman is an excellent value. 337650

One year later and this product continues to satisfy my needs and impress my mountain bike rider buddies! The quality of stitching and durability is well...the same as when I bought it excellent! I use this product 2-3 times every week.

  • Compatibility of Swagman Tailwhip Tailgate Pad on 2017 Ford F-150
    The Swagman Tailwhip Tailgate Pad Bike Rack for Full-Size Trucks - 61" Wide # S64760 does work well on the newer model Ford tailgates. The large flap around the handle does give you the access to the rear camera. It is a confirmed fit for the newer model year F-150 tailgates.

  • Will the Swagman Tailwhip Fit a 2015 Chevy Silverado 1500
    Yes, you can use the Swagman Tailwhip # S64760 on your 2015 Chevy Silverado 1500. The only real requirement for this model is that the truck would need to be a full-size truck like yours since the Tailwhip is 61 inches long.

  • Compatibility of Pickup Truck Tailgate Pad Bike Carriers with 2016 Ram 1500 with Rambox
    We offer two sizes of the Swagman Tailwhip Tailgate Pad and Bike Rack. Part # S64760 is for full-size pickups and measures 61-inches wide x 20-1/2-inches tall while part # S64761 is intended for mid-size trucks and measures 54-inches wide x 16-inches tall. Both install using the three included tie down straps and either one will be compatible with the Ram Box feature on your pickup.

  • Tailgate Pad For 2016 Ram 1500 Limited With 50-Inch Wide tailgate
    We have one tailgate pad that is less than 54-inches wide and would fit your 2016 Ram Dually tailgate. The pad is designed for stand-up paddleboards and is part # Y07410. This pad is 53-inches wide and 17-1/2 inches tall and is attached to the tailgate with nylon straps. If you are looking for a rack to carry a bike in your truck bed I recommend the Thule Insta-Gater Truck Bed Single Bike Rack, part # TH501. The bike carrier is held in place with two ratcheting straps that are secured...

  • Swagman Tailwhip Tailgate Pad for a 2017 GMC Sierra 3500 in Cold Weather
    The Swagman Tailwhip, part # S64760 is a great pick for the 2017 GMC Sierra 3500. I reached out to Swagman about the rack's temperature sensitivity. They confirmed that the rack would be just fine, but the foam would be extremely hard at -20 to -30 below zero. This risks damage to your bikes, but would perform substantially better than a metal rack in those temperatures.

  • Will Swagman Tailwhip Fit 2011 Chevrolet Silverado with Bed Liner
    The Swagman Tailwhip Tailgate Pad # S64760 is a confirmed fit on your 2011 Chevrolet Silverardo. I measured the section that goes over the top of the tailgate and it's approximately 5-1/2 inches so it will work with your liner.

  • Can Topline Truck Bed Mounted Bike Carrier be Used on 2016 Chevrolet Silverado with Leer Cap
    The Topline Bike Carrier Truck Bed Mounted # UG2500 referenced in your question may work with the Leer Camper Top on your 2016 Chevrolet Silverado if the Leer top does not block the lip at the top of the bed side wall. The clamp on the Topline Carrier will grab around the top lip of the truck to hold the bikes so this small area will need to be clear of any hardware. I have attached an image that shows how much of the top of the side wall the clamp will need. If there is sufficient...

  • Truck Bed Bike Rack Recommendations for Electra Townie Bikes in a 2014 Ford F-150 5-1/2 Foot Bed
    We have some great truck bed bike rack options that will work with your 2014 Ford F-150. For a fork mount style I recommend the Swagman Patrol # S64701 because it is light weight and easy to use. If you want to avoid having to take off the front tires to mount the bikes I recommend a tailgate pad such as the Tailwhip, # S64760. The front wheels will drape over the tailgate and are secured to the pad with straps. No need to remove any wheels! I have linked a video review of this carrier...

  • Cant Crank Trailer Jack Handle with Bikes Loaded Between 2005 Ford F-150 and Trailer
    I have some possible solutions for you. First, one option is the Bike Bunk, # CC-275. It mounts to the front of the trailer A-Frame up over the propane tank. The only catch is that it is rated for 100 pounds and the bike rack used has to be rated for use on a trailer. The combined weight of the bike rack and bikes will likely exceed the 100 pound capacity so you would have to put 1 or 2 bikes somewhere else. Another option is to use a tailgate pad such as # S64760 to hold the bikes in...

  • Tailgate Pad for Use with DeeZee Truck Bed Mat DZ86965 on 2017 Nissan Frontier
    Thank you for your many purchases from etrailer, including that for the Dee Zee Custom-Fit Truck Bed Mat # DZ86965 which is a confirmed fit for your 2017 Nissan Frontier with 6-foot bed. Dee Zee does not offer a matching rubber tailgate pad like the bed mat but there are products offered that can provide such protection. Other kits for your truck such as the Bedrug custom liner kit # BRN05KCK includes a tailgate pad, but this product uses different construction - carpet-like material...

  • Will Topline Truck Bed Bike Rack Fit a 2014 Ford F-150 with a TruXedo Lo Pro Tonneau Cover
    The rails for the TruXedo Lo Pro Tonneau cover on your 2014 Ford F-150 will get in the way of installing Topline bike rack # UG2500-4 but there is another option. You could use the Swagman Tailwhip # S64760 which can hold up to 5 bikes and will not interfere with the Tonneau cover. I have linked a video review for you.

  • Truck Bed Mount Bike Carrier Options for a 2013 Ford F-150
    We have one truck bed bike carrier that holds the bike at the wheel and fits your 2013 Ford F-150. It is the Thule Insta-Gater, # TH501. I have linked a video review of this carrier for you. Another option is the Topline carrier # UG2500. One end attaches to the bed side and the first bike. Then there is a second piece to go between the bikes. I have linked a video review of this carrier as well. And for a third option and what I would probably use if I had a truck is a tailgate pad....

  • Truck Bed Bike Rack for 4 Bikes on 2016 Chevy Silverado Short Bed w/ Leer Trilogy X2T Tonneau Cover
    The Tonneau cover rails on your 2016 Chevy Silverado 2500 will be in the way of most truck bed bike racks but I do have a couple of solutions for you. First, you could use a tailgate pad # S64760. This will protect the truck and the bikes, secure the bikes, and you will likely not have to fold up the Tonneau cover all the way. I have linked a video review of this product for you. Another option is to use a towing bike rack, # S64675, as long as the trailer's tongue weight is less...

  • Bike Rack Recommendation for Truck Bed of a 2013 Ford F-150 with Tonneau
    If you are looking for a bike rack that will allow you to transport your 4 bikes in the bed of your 2013 Ford F-150 you would want the Swagman Tailgate Pad Bike Rack part # S64760. This will allow you to secure your bikes to the tailgate of your truck. A bed rail mounted system like the # UG2500-4 that you referenced wouldn't work well for you since you have a tonneau cover.
