This is a Class III hitch with a 2" receiver and 350 lb tongue weight capacity so you will be able to carry a good deal of cargo with it. For a cargo carrier on the rear...

Also, please keep in mind that the bike rack must be rated for use on an RV in order to abide by the carriers warranty. If you do not have space available on the tongue of your a-frame...

  • Bike Rack Recommendation for Carrying 60 lb Bike at Rear of Travel Trailer
  • I do have a bike rack solution that will work well for your, but not every bike rack is designed for the rouger ride quality at the rear of a camper. I wish I could recommend the Thule EasyFold XT part # TH903202 for you as it is a great rack, but it shouldn't be used at the back of a travel trailer. The most similar option is the Swagman Escapee part # S64693 which has a 60 lb per bike capacity and can be used at the rear of a camper so it would work well for you. This would work great...

  • Can a Bike Rack be Installed on the Trailer Side of the Bike Bunk # CC-275 for Clearance
  • Your idea for the Stromberg Carlson Bike Bunk # CC-275 is a great one, the only problem is that even some of our smallest bike racks stick out past the 16-1/2" of clearance that you are looking for. I may have another solution for you though. Check out the Lippert Jack-It # LC429756 that can hold up to 2 bikes weighing 40 lbs each. This bike rack installs on an A-frame trailer and fits around jacks with up to 2-1/4" outer tube diameter and 22-1/2" clearance. Since this bike rack holds...

  • 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 # S64684 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...

The bumper is not a suitable place to mount this hitch but the frame rails are. If you would like to use a bumper mounted trailer hitch and you have a 4" x 4" bumper that the manufacturer says can be used for towing then you can use the Curt RV Bumper 2" Trailer Hitch Receiver part # E-100 instead.

  • Recommended Trailer Hitch For 2016 KZ Sportsman Travel Trailer

You can compare the mounting bracket of the # UF35-946403 hitch to the Curt hitch # 13703. The Ultra-Fab hitch will sit about 3 inches higher than the Ultra-Fab hitch does. I have attached a photo of both hitches you can compare.

This is a very nice weld on option adjustable from 47-1/8 to 77 inches. For a bolt on option, I recommend the Curt Adjustable Width Trailer Hitch Receiver for RVs, 22" to 72" Wide # 13703. The Curt model recommends the use of stabilization strap # 18050. The weld on options are nice because they don't require any drilling into your frame, but...

To add a 4-way what you would need is the part # 18252. This is a 72 inch long 4-way connector that comes with quick-disconnects so that it can easily be attached to a trailer's taillight circuits....

  • Recommended Bike Rack for Tongue of R-Pod With Electric Tongue Jack
  • To mount a bike rack to the tongue of your R-Pod you will want to start out by using the Stromberg Carlson Bike Bunk Trailer-Mounted Bike Rack Carrier for A-Frame Trailers # CC-275. This will give you a 2 inch trailer hitch receiver opening for you to use a bike rack with. From the top of the A-frame of your R-Pod to the top of the cross tube is 33-1/2 inches, which should clear your electric tongue jack, and it has a weight capacity of 100 lbs.

To flat tow this vehicle, I recommend upgrading your 5,000 lb hitch to the Curt Class V Universal Weld-on Receiver Hitch # 15903 which is a universal fit for frames between 18 and 61 inches wide. Then for your flat towing setup, I recommend you begin with the Roadmaster MX Base Plate Kit - Removable Arms # RM-3176-3 and use Loctite Threadlocker # LT37420 for the installation. Then for your...

  • Recommended Bike Rack to Use With Stromberg Carlson Bike Bunk Trailer-Mounted Bike Rack Carrier
  • The Stromberg Carlson Bike Bunk Trailer-Mounted Bike Rack Carrier # CC-275 has a weight capacity of 100 pounds. This consists of the weight of the bikes and the weight of the bike carrier. So I suggest using a bike rack that's reasonably lightweight to give yourself a higher variety of bikes that can be carried. It's also easier to install and remove the rack from the Bike Bunk. One option is the Kuat Beta # B202-2 which only weighs 12.6 pounds. This is a hanging rack that will fit...

I have attached these options for you but I recommend using the Curt RV Bumper 2" Trailer Hitch Receiver part # E-100. This trailer hitch uses steel plates to surround the bumper as opposed to the u-bolts in the other options. The steel plates will provide more support and also look much better than the u-bolt options. If you also need a cargo basket for your generator...

For a bolt-on option, I recommend the Curt Adjustable Width Trailer Hitch Receiver for RVs, 22" to 72" Wide # C13704 which is rated for trailers up to 3,500 lbs and 350 lb tongue weight. You can alternatively use the Curt # 13703 which uses a different style bracket...

  • Bike Rack Solution for 2018 Airstream Basecamp Travel Trailer
  • Your photo suggests that the space available on your Airstream Basecamp trailer's frame to install the Stromberg Carlson Bike Bunk # CC-275 is just not large enough for a good fit. The Bike Bunk's brackets are almost 5-inches wide and it appears you'd have to do some serious cutting on your propane cover. On such a nice new premium travel trailer like the Basecamp I can see why this might make it more desirable to find another bike carrying solution. You might take a look at the Jack-It...

  • Correct Adjustable Width Trailer Hitch for I-Beam Frame That is 69 Inches Wide

For a frame of that width you would need the Adjustable Width Trailer Hitch Receiver for RVs, 22" to 72" Wide # 13703 though it has different brackets, and I've added a photo of their dimensions for you to take a look at. These brackets can be flipped (on both hitches) without issue. If that...

  • Weight of 2 inch Curt RV Bumper Trailer Hitch Receiver and Securing It With Bike Rack
  • I checked with the manufacturer for you and the Curt RV Bumper 2" Trailer Hitch Receiver # E-100 weighs 12 lbs. This hitch fits 4" x 4" square bumpers and while there is technically not a built-in security measure to keep someone from taking the hitch, it does get torqued down tightly to your bumper as you can see in the linked instructions, so it would be quite a bit of work to take it. Additionally, if you were using a bike rack such as the Thule Range 4 Bike RV Rack # TH9057 or...

  • Recommended 4 Bike Rack to Use With RV That is Towing a 2017 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited
  • I have a solution for you, but the RV Bumper Hitch Receivers, like part # S64025, are only compatible with the square bumpers like the one in the attached picture. The problem with a dual hitch extender (or any hitch extender), like part # MT70070, is that it reduces the weight capacity of your trailer hitch receiver by 50 percent, so you might not be able to continue to tow your 2017 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited. The Let's Go Aero BikeWing T4, part # B01458, is an excellent choice to use...

Either of these hitch receivers will mount to your motorhome frame so a bumper is not needed.

The best solution is to use the Curt Adjustable Width Trailer Hitch Receiver for RVs, 22" to 68-1/2" Wide # C13704 or up to 72 inch wide # 13703. This trailer hitch will mount to the frame of your trailer and will allow you to use a bike rack or cargo carrier on your trailer. If...

It has a 350 pound tongue weight capacity so the combined weight of the cargo carrier and the Honda generator cannot exceed that limit.
