Note: This dual-arm rack reduces the need for a bike frame adapter bar (sold separately) to mount a children's, women's, or alternative frame bicycle. However, to mount certain bikes or to keep your bike level on the rack, a bike adapter bar may be required. Most step-through bikes, dual-suspension bikes, and small children's bikes will require a bike adapter bar.


Swagman Trailhead 2-Bike Carrier

The Swagman Trailhead hitch-mounted bike rack carries four bikes on dual arms that provide superior stability during transport. The dual arms easily fold down for storage - just pull a pin - and each arm features an integrated reflector at its tip.


Anti-Sway Cradles

Swagman Trailhead Anti-Sway Cradles

The Trailhead has anti-sway cradles that 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.


Tilts Forward For Rear Cargo Access

Swagman Trailhead Tilts Forward

This versatile rack tilts forward, away from your vehicle, when you remove a pin at the base. This allows easy access to your vehicle's rear cargo area.


Shank Adapter for 2" Receivers

Swagman Trailhead Shank Adapter

It includes a two-piece adapter that installs over the shank to convert your rack for use on 2" hitch receivers. For 1-1/4" hitch receivers, use the rack without the adapter.


Anti-Rattle Threaded Hitch Pin

Swagman Trailhead Anti-Rattle Threaded Hitch Pin

The Trailhead comes with an anti-rattle, threaded hitch pin and clip to secure the rack to your trailer hitch and eliminate rattle during transport. To lock your rack to the hitch, replace the pin and clip with Swagman's anti-rattle lock (S64029 - sold separately).

Video Transcript for Swagman Trailhead 4 Bike Rack Review

Today we're going to be taking a look at this Swagman Trailhead. This is a hitch mounted hanging bike rake and it's been designed with foldable arms so we can get these down and out of the way when not in use. Now we've got this available in a 2-bike, a 3-bike or a 4-bike with the foldaway design. In a 4-bike with the fixed mount here. The Trailhead's a very sturdy, durable rack, it is really stable as you head down the road. There's a couple of features that they've incorporated in there to make sure that happens. The first is our threaded hitch pin bolt that keeps any side to side or up and down movement contained.

Then if we come up here just a little bit further, we've actually got a threaded black T-handle here, it works in conjunction with the black plate you can see, you'll see when it's loose our rack has some movement and some wobble there. When we tighten that back down, all that movement is going to be taken care of and we'll not have to worry about that. Now once we have our T-handle loosened, we can just rotate the black metal plate so it's running the same way as our rack and then pull the silver pin that's going to allow us to tilt the rack right out and away from our vehicle. In most cases, this going to give you more than enough room to open any rear trunks or rear hatches that you need to get in and out of your goodies that you want. Now it's very simple to get it back in its upright position, we're just going to bring it up so the holes line up, slide our pin back through, secure here on the other side and then we turn that plate and tighten our T-handle back down. Now they use a black powder-coat finish so it's going to be a strong and durable finish. We don't have worry about it fading over time or a lot of corrosion and stuff. There's that other pin here, you just pull that out and we can move our dual cradle arms up into position. Now there's two rubber stops right here.

Just like our features down here at the bottom did, this is also going to keep that rattle and that vibration to a minimum. We'll slide through our pin with our cradle arms in the upright position, sometimes you've got to push up and down on the arms a little bit to guide it in. Bring our clip around, we can secure it on our pin there and we'll have our cradle arms out into the loading position. The dual cradle arms of the Trailhead are just 11 1/2 inches from the outside of one to the outside of the other. This is really going to help us accommodate a wide variety of frame styles and secure our bikes properly onto our rack. Each set of cradles is going to have four rubber straps that help hold the bike in place.

As you can see here, these would be for going across the top two and then we've even got the anti-sway cradles located here in the rear. The seat down tube will come through there, the straps will come around and that's going to keep our bikes from swaying back and forth preventing them or at least helping to prevent them from making contact with one another or with our frame. The straps, themselves, are very nice, long, durable straps. They're really thick, heavy-duty. They're going to hold our bike very securely. As you can see, we've got the grooves that run through the bottom of the cradles there to help it accommodate any other brake cables and things of that nature.

These are wide enough to accommodate all the way up to an inch and a quarter frame width. Really nice, deep, wide pockets so we can really secure our stuff with. These will rotate to whatever angle that we need them to. To best accommodate our bikes, there's a lot of different types out there and a lot of different configurations so you are going to have options as far as moving those around go. Now they don't move freely, we don't have to worry about them spinning on their own, it definitely takes a little bit of force but it does allow us to customize that. These will also, again with a little bit force, it's not something that happens really easily but we can adjust these forward and back, right out to the silver stops that here on the back to keep them from coming all the way off, you see right here. That's easily adjustable, forward and back, so we can get the appropriate spacing on our bike. My bike's a big old bike so maybe I need a little bit more space and other narrower frame bikes, we don't need so much room so we can get that customized. The straps go onto one of the three, nice, heavy-duty connection points there. It'll hold our bike nice and snug no matter what diameter the frame's going to be here, we're going to have plenty of room to get that around and get it connected. Now that we've gone over all the feature of the rack, let me show you how to install this on your vehicle. As you can see here, we've got our inch and a quarter shank exposed. This is going to go right into the class one and class two hitches. You do want to keep in mind that if you're using it on a class one, you are going to be limited to a 2-bike capacity. Then to switch this over so we can put it our class three, we've got our two plate adapter. You can see there's a bevel hole there and a threaded hole, we want those to be in line with each other and those should be placed over the non-threaded hole, you can see here, this is our non-threaded hole. The one further up is threaded to accept our anti-rattle bolt. We'll place those on, line it up with the hole we just discussed and then it's just a matter of threading our Allen bolt into this side and we'll use our Allen key and we're going to tighten this right on down. Perfect, easy to install. Now we'll place the rack right into the receiver tube of our hitch. We're going to line up our threaded hole here with our hitch pin hole. Once we have those in line, we're going to take our anti-rattle bolt which is provided and we're going to thread this on through. Now that we've got threaded through you'll notice we've got some movement and kind of some wiggle to our rack so now we need to use our wrench, we're going to tighten our bolt on down. This draws the shank of the rack over against our receiver tube and you'll notice that once that's nice and tight, all that play and all that wiggle is gone. We'll then take our provided clip and we're going to slide in the other end. Now here on the rear of the rack, if it's not already tightened, you see how we've got that wiggle and that noise, they've got this nice plate that's designed to go across the backside and then we just thread in the black T-handle and it going to take all that movement and all that play out of there as well. As you can see now, real nice and secure and we're ready to go down the road without a lot of noise. Loading up the bike is an easy process as well. You pull our pin located here at the top, rotate our arms up into position and we'll reinsert the pin in the new hole that we've created. Bring that on around. As you can see, nice, stable, sturdy ride for a bike and we've got our four straps that we're going to undo that we talked about earlier. With those opened up, let me grab our bike and we're just going to place the bike right up into the cradles that we just exposed and we've talked about the anti-sway cradle strap that you can select on each side. You want your down tube of your seat to be on the side that you've got your anti-sway cradle set up on. Now it's just a matter of pulling the straps around and getting it secured. As you can see there, nice and secure and ready to head down the road. As you can see, we've loaded our rack down to capacity. We are allowed 35 pounds per bike so we add 4 times 35 and it gives us 140 weight capacity. We started with our road bike then we went to our aluminum mountain bike, we got a hybrid style bike here, we've used an adapter bar on that and we also used an adapter bar on our ladies' bike just to even it out. This would have gone on the rack without but the rear end would have been kicked up really high so we wanted to keep it level, wanted to keep it even. The adapter bar we used is from Swagman, that part number is 64005, you can check that out on our website if you don't already have one and if you have a need for it. We'll now take the full load out through our test course to give you a really good idea of what it looks like in action. Here on our test course, we'll start by going through the slalom. This is going to show us the side to side movement of the rack just like if you we're going around corners or doing some evasive maneuvers. Once we turn the corner, we'll get into our alternating speed bumps, this shows you the twisting and torquing action on the rack just like a curb or a pothole might cause. Once we get into our solid speed bumps, we'll see the up and down movement, just like going in and out of a garage, parking lot or driveway. That will complete today's look at the Swagman Trailhead, part number S63380. .

DOES NOT FIT BOYS BMX BIKES!! Purchased to carry 3 children's bikes (2 20"bmx boys bikes and a 16" girls bikes) Look and feel solid but does not fit 20" bikes and smaller (maybe mountain bikes but not bmx bikes).. will only fit men's bikes. Going to remove the holder and just strap to the arms.. 566506


Comments

Some bicycles, like womens bikes or bikes with a short top tube can be hard to fit, which is why frame adapter bars like # 64005
Swagman Deluxe Bike Frame Adapter Bar for Women's, Children's, and Alternative Frame Bikes
$24.95
are available. A frame adapter bar spans the distance between the handlebar gooseneck and the seat post, adding an extra few inches of width for the bike to attach to the rack.

I received the Trailhead 4 rack in perfect condition and in a wonderfully short amount of time. This rack is solid and steady, and well worth the price compared to other big names. All of the components are of high quality and are sure to last a long time. Just to be covered further down the road, I plan to purchase spare cradles, straps, and hitch pins to have when I need them. Etrailer sells a thorough line of replacement parts for this model. 572322

Got it delivered yesterday. Opened the box and it was fully assembled. All i had to do was open the box and set it into the hitch. Got it all setup within a couple of minutes (i drive a 16' Cherokee TH). Putting the bikes on and off was easy enough. Came across one issue during bike placement. My girlfriends bike is either oddly shaped or pretty small framed because i had trouble finding the right configuration for the strap to hold the bike without swaying. I also tried putting hers on first and that was difficult trying to get her bike to pass all of the straps and guide holders. Overall pretty satisfied with the product itself. Not much, if any at all, sway on the rack. 232995

Have not actually been on the road with it so far. Installation on the hitch was a problem. The clearance hole in the 1-1/4 to 2 inch adapter was too small and I had to file it out so the threaded pin could be installed Looks like getting 4 hybrid bikes (with handle bars that extend straight out) on the rack is going to be a challenge. Bungie cords are going to be necessary to control the rotation of the front wheels. Recommend that potential buyers find a rack to try their bikes on before buying anything. 27609

This is a very solid product! I have used it for over a year now and love it! I have had up to 3 bikes on this without a problem and have traveled over 8 hours in the car one way with absolutely no issues. Many other bike racks like this one that I see on other cars look unstable this is not unstable in anyway. I did have to file some of the paint off of the rack to get it to fit in my 1 and 1/4" hitch but once that was done it has been perfect. I also bought the locking hitch bolt which is awesome too. 65654

Stable and well built bike rack. Got this rack and the Draw-tite hitch for a 2015 Camry XSE. I needed the s bend in the shank to clear my driveway apron. The back bottom of hitch is normally 9.5 inches off the ground, 8 inches with the hitch and 4 bikes (about 140 lbs). With 3 people in the car the clearance on my apron is less then 2 inches and it doesn't hit when all 4 are aboard. With the arms folded you can open and close the trunk, but when arms are up the trunk is blocked. This is the reason I knock it down one star. The cheapest thule looks like it is the reverse blocking with arms down, I wish the swagman was that way since it is way easier to tilt the rack with out the bikes. It is hard to get the some bikes over the large triangular cradles, but was able to do it for even my daughters small bike (one side is only on top of the cradle). The main problem with the cradles is that the attachment points for the straps are very flexible, which makes it hard to attach the straps, you end up having to bend the cradle which is hard when bikes are in the way. There is little movement side to side and up and down. The hitch is a tighter fit on the sides then top and bottom to hitch (even with bolt tightened down hard). Overall a very good rack. Customer service was excellent at answering my questions when I was placing the order. Thanks 292072

Firstly, eTrailer was terrific in answering all the questions before I made the purchase and in guiding me to select the perfect bike rack for my Subaru. The item arrived in 2 days even with a free shipping option. Most of the rack came pre-assembled and it took me about 15 mins to install it. It perfectly fit on my 09 Subaru Impreza with 1 1/4 inch Curt Class -1 receiver. There are rattles and the rack is a very sturdy. After installation, I was also surprised to find that I do not even have to tilt the mast to access the rear hatchback. I understand that with Class-1 hitch on my car, I am limited to mounting only 2 bikes on this rack but that is a limitation of my car not the bike rack. I highly recommend eTrailer for their customer service and the Swagman trail-head bike 4 bike rack. 224982

Love this site! Got their contact info from local bike shop. Brought up their website. Put in my car info and was immediately given numerous choices for both the tow bar and the bike rack. Did some comparisons and chose the tow bar and rack that best filled my needs. Prices were the same as that other big website (I always check these days). Free shipping which was a big deal because these items were heavy. Had both in 3 days. Had my mechanic install. Took him 15 min. I love my new bike rack! Thanks etrailer. Will definitely use you again, 525172

Absolutely Wunderbar (wonderful)! etrailer support U.S. Service member by being one of the ONLY online vehicle equipment ordering organizations that ships to an APO address. (and I searched a ton of them) I live in Germany and work for the DoD. After researching SEVERAL sites to purchase and ship a trailer hitch, bike rack, mountain bike mount and electrical system to support it for my needs, I discovered my ONLY solution I was etrailer. Lots of others had the gear I required, but NONE of them, would ship to an APO address. Yes, the prices were just a bit higher than a few of the other sites, but without the ability to ship to an APO, the price difference was negligable. So, the GREAT things about etrailer; 1. Easy/simple ordering process 2. great seach tool capability, allowing me to find everything I needed and recommended other items I may not have thought about. 3. Simple / well layed out online order ability. 4. Amazingly quick, delivery. Within 10 days of my order being placed, I had everything in the mail. Yes, shipping cost a bit more than desired, but again, paying a bit more to ship at least allowed it to actually BE shipped to my APO. I've already had hitch and electrical installed and I'll be heading out camping this weekend, WITH my bikes in TOW and all thanks to etrailers exceptional support. Thanks ETRAILER Jason S. 52005

Was really easy to install, took me less than 30 minutes. If you are looking to have kids bicycle ( 16" or less) on this stand they might not fit . I could not fit my sons 16" bicycle on it. Otherwise it is a very sturdy stand and hold 4 bicycles easily. 154503

The good: Solid, heavy construction. Easy to use method for attaching the bikes. Includes adapter for different type / size hitches. Fairly easy to swing out of the way for hatch access (although it is heavy). Plenty of room between carrier and rear of vehicle. The meh: Requires the use of anti-rattle bolt. This means that one must carry a socket wrench to install and remove the carrier. Should use a torque wrench. The bad: Instructions are awful. To assemble, "only one bolt needs to be installed", but the photos are so poor that they are useless. Does not say that a second bolt has to be tightened. Pin and pin locks cannot be used because the anti-rattle threads cannot be removed and are too small diameter for a pin. Recommended Swegman anti-rattle lock is too long to fit on some factory hitches such as Jeep Grand Cherokee. Bike strap and connectors make placing the bike on the inside holder a chore. 212416

Although Swagman says the S63380 will hold four bikes up to 35 lbs, they also mention on the instruction sheet that the hitch has only a 100 lb max capacity! Our bikes all weigh about 30 to 32 lbs, so four bikes are too much for this hitch. I called etrailer to exchange for this reason and etrailer was awesome and sent me a prepaid return label and also immediately sent out a replacement (Sportrack A30404XT) that can carry the load. Fantastic customer service from etrailer! I noticed that they have updated the description on the etrailer page to add the 100 lb max capacity for this Swagman hitch, so hopefully this mix-up won't happen for anyone else. 46330

This whole process couldn't have been easier. I ordered the hitch and about an hour later ordered a bike rack to go into the hitch. An hour after that, I decided I wanted a 4 bike rack, instead of 2. Cathy T was super helpful in cancelling/placing my new order and knew exactly what she was talking about while suggesting the proper lock. Everything arrived right on time and was really easy to install. I do suggest using ramps to raise the vehicle a bit, although it wouldn't have been necessary. Also, it doesn't hurt to have a few cold beverages nearby, and a buddy to help when needed. Seriously though, this was pretty simple to do and it's going to be super functional and I think it even looks pretty good. The prices were fair, shipping was fast, install was easy, and Cathy T was great. A+ for everyone involved. Thanks! 399673

A great, utilitarian rack for the cost. Tough, folding, and tilting works well. I remove mine when I know I won't use it for a few days and it's easy to put and take off. Curt receiver, also from etrailer, installs quickly as a bolt-on-- I had a friend help hold as I tightened the bolts. Purchased a receiver lock and it's holding up fine. 628948

Purchased this about a year ago and have used it about a dozen times with my 1 1/4" hitch receiver with up to 3 bikes. This operates well on city streets and highways. I have noted that at high speed, the bikes may move aft due to air drag. 595241

Great product. I installed it in minutes after I installed the Draw-Tite Max-Frame Trailer Hitch Receiver (2" Class 3 hithc from this site on my CX-9). I haven't used it yet, but we watched the video and tested out how to install/remove, fold it back when not in use, how to tilt to access the lift-gate, and how to secure the bikes. Very straight forward. It does stick out pretty far, but that was expected for a 4 bike carrier. The fit and finish is nice and matches our black CX-9 :) 562530

The product met all my expectations. Although it maybe a bit tricky to get the bike frames to go through the arms, the plastic/rubber holders always make a perfect fit as they turn and move freely. It is easy to assemble and disassemble and there are places to keep the screws when not in their designated locations. Very satisfied. 551079

We have used it a couple of times for trips. It works very well. I would recommend it. I have mine installed with a class 3 or 4 (the larger) square coupling device. The bikes are secure when we travel and the unit is relatively easy attach and detach from my Ford Freestyle. I can also leave it attached to the car when it is unloaded and use the device to pivot the vertical piece and get access to the rear lift door of the car. The etrailer service was excellent! 542868

Was new in the market for a rear hitch fold out bike rack for the family vacation. While my daughter's smaller bike (age 5) did not fit, the other three were not too terribly hard to get on. Assembly was easy. Product quality is superb. Great product, especially for the price. Customer service was quite possibly the best I've ever had, and I order almost everything online. Told my neighbor, an avid bike rider about etrailer.com. Will for sure use this company again. 529042

Great product works well. Wish it worked better for mounting kids bikes, its a bit of a pain but ver happy with the product. The 5 stars was for the great speed and quality of of etrailer. Very smooth transaction and on time delivery. 474767

We had a ground clearance problem grinding other bike racks and even hitches backing out of our driveway. This rack instantly goes up a few inches as it comes out of the receiver, giving us the extra ground clearance we needed to not grind. In addition, it holds the bikes more easily and securely than our previous rack. But best of all, I mangled one of the parts and contacted Swagman customer service and they instantly offered to send a (big, heavy) replacement for free -- even though I clearly stated it was my own fault, not theirs. Go Swagman! 469182

First bike rack for me & it fits my needs great. Easy to install on hitch, bikes stow easily, come off easily. It was also a great price compared to others at 2-3 times the cost. 256409

Excellent bike rack. Holds up to 4 bikes securely. Easy to mount the bikes, very solid construction. My wife had a little trouble with the tie down straps, but managed it. No such problem for a guy. I would recommend, in fact I believe my son is buying the same rack. 254754

Mounted the Swagman 4 Bike carrier on the rear and went camping. Only had two bikes loaded but the carrier worked well. It would probably hold 3 but some moving around would be required to get 4 on. I'm impressed with the rigid ability of the carrier. It folds down easily when not in use. Shipping was prompt and packing was adequate. 207934

Do you have a question about this Hitch Bike Rack?


  • Bike Rack Recommendation for a Front Hitch on a 2017 Ford F-250
  • Because Draw-Tite front mount receiver # 65076 sits low on the 2017 Ford F-250 I recommend looking at bike racks with a rise in the shank for better ground clearance. The Lets Go Aero BikeWing # B01311 is a great inexpensive option. It weighs just 12 pounds and holds the bikes at the wheels so it is compatible with many bike styles. It has a slight rise in the shank so it will help with ground clearance without blocking the driver's view too much. I have linked a video review of this...

  • 4-Bike Rack for 2014 Toyota Camry
  • There is not an adapter available to allow the Reese Eclipse 4 Bike Rack # 63124 to be used with a 1-1/4" hitch, but there are economical racks available that will work for you. For a hitch, the Draw-Tite # 36540 fits your 2014 Toyota Camry and is a Class II, 1-1/4" hitch and the 4-bike rack I recommend checking out that will work with it is the Swagman Trailhead # S63380. This rack secures your bikes with anti-sway cradles that prevent your bikes from coming into contact with each other...

  • Bike Rack Recommendations For Rear Hatch Clearance on a 2016 Audi Q5
  • There are options for carrying bikes on your Audi Q5 that allowing access to the rear door. However, Thule does not list any of their trunk mounted bike racks as a fit for your vehicle. There is not a safe location to mount the top straps to support the weight of the bike rack. Instead, I would recommend adding a trailer hitch and a hitch mounted bike rack. For a trailer hitch, I recommend the Draw-Tite Max Frame Class III Hitch, # 75940, and some of our most popular bike racks are the...

  • Trailer Hitch Mount Bike Rack Recommendations for a 2013 Honda CR-V
  • I will be more than happy to make some bike rack recommendations for you. I can give you my top picks that fit the criteria that you have provided but there are some other important factors you will need to consider. Then I can provide a more specific recommendation. The year, make, and model of the vehicle, the size trailer hitch, and the type of bikes is all important. A 2013 Honda CR-V like yours could have a Class I, II or III hitch with either a 1-1/4 inch or 2 inch receiver so...

  • Will Reese Eclipse 4 Bike Carrier # 63124 Fit on Toyota 4Runner
  • As long as your Toyota 4Runners factory trailer hitch has a 2-inch receiver, you will have no problems using the Reese Eclipse 4 Bike Carrier # 63124. It tilts away from the vehicle so you can more easily access your rear cargo bay and features an anti-rattle device to cut down on noise while traveling. It also has a weight capacity of 120 lbs. I have provided links to the installation instructions and a video showing the installation of this rack on a 2012 Toyota 4Runner. While the...

  • Swagman XP vs. Swagman Trailhead Bike Rack Comparison
  • I would recommend the Swagman Trailhead part # S63380 for you because this rack has two arms instead of one like the Swagman XP # S64940 which will make carrying bikes easier and more stable. The Trailhead also has anti-sway cradles designed to prevent the bikes from moving around in the rack which will help prevent them from contacting each other. I attached a review video for both racks for you to check out as well. Both racks are confirmed to work at the back of an RV. If you plan...

  • Bike Rack Recommendations for 2010 Honda Element
  • To mount a bike rack on the rear of your Element, there are two alternatives, a hitch mounted option or a trunk mounted option. The hitch mounted option would require that a hitch like the Draw-Tite Class III receiver, part # 75659 be installed. The hitch would then serve as the attachment point for the bike rack, and could also be used with a cargo carrier or to tow a small trailer in the future, if the need should arise. Although going this route would be initially more expensive...

  • How to Carry 4 Bikes on a 2012 Honda Crosstour
  • All of the trailer hitches for the 2012 Honda Crosstour, see link, will be visible below the rear fascia on the vehicle. Take a look at the picture I have included that shows what I mean. All of the hitches are Class I hitch which does mean that you will be limited to 2 bikes and you will have to have a Class I compatible bike rack. To carry 4 bikes I recommend a combination of a hitch and hitch rack and a roof rack. For a hitch I recommend Draw-Tite trailer hitch # 24852. And for...

  • Recommendations for Attaching Girls and Alternative Framed Bikes to the Swagman #s63380 Bike Rack
  • To mount girls or alternative framed bikes you will need a bike adapter bar that attaches between the handle bar neck and the seat post on the bicycle. We have several of these adapters available (see link). The most economic adapter bar is the Swagman Easy-Out Women and Alternative Frame Bike Adapter for Hitch Bike Racks, item # 64005, and would be a good match for your bike rack. The Yakima Tube Top Bike Adapter Bar, item # Y02531, is the one I like to recommend because it has...

  • Weight of the Swagman Trailhead 4 Bike Rack Part # S63380
  • The Swagman Trailhead 4 Bike Rack part # S63380 has a shipping weight of 35 lbs which means the actual weight is around 30 lbs. In order to use this bike rack on your 2017 Tesla Model X you will need a trailer hitch and for that I recommend the Draw-Tite Max-Frame Trailer Hitch Receiver part # 76143 if you do not already have one.

  • Recommended Hitch Mount Bike Rack for 2015 Honda Odyssey
  • Either of these bike racks will work well for you. Both the Swagman Trailhead # S63380 and the Thule Hitching Post Pro # TH934XTR have great features, such as anti-sway cradles, a tilting mast for cargo access, and an included anti-rattle pin. I prefer the Thule Hitching Post Pro # TH934XTR. The Hitching Post Pro will offer you extra clearance at the rear of your vehicle. It measures 13-1/2 inches from the center of the hitch pin hole to the upright bar of the carrier, 4 inches longer...

  • Solutions for Towing PWC Trailer and Carrying 4-Bike Rack with 2009 Toyota Highlander
  • First, you'll need a hitch. I'd recommend the Draw-Tite Class III Trailer Hitch, part # 75726. You'd also need a trailer wiring harness. If your Highlander has the tow package, you'll need # 56042. If you don't have the tow package,use # 118449. Your local RV dealer or mechanic should be able to install the hitch with no problem whatsoever. Draw-Tite says the installation should take a professional no more than 50 or 60 minutes to install, so an hour to an hour and 1/2 of labor should be...

  • Weight Capacity for Swagman Trailhead 4 Bike Rack and Recommended Anti-Rattle Pin
  • I confirmed with Swagman that the Trailhead 4 Bike Rack # S63380 referenced in your question can handle 4 bikes that are up to 140 pounds total (up to 35 pounds per bike). It does appear that the earlier versions of this rack came with a listed total capacity of 100 pounds (although each cradle could support a bike of up to 35 pounds) but this has since been updated/redesigned. The current version of this rack does indeed have a 140 pound total weight capacity so it will work perfectly...

  • Recommendation for an Economical 2 Inch Hitch Bike Rack for Carrying 4 Bikes On a 2011 Honda Pilot
  • We have several economical options for carrying 4 bikes in the Class 3 hitch on your 2011 Honda Pilot. For my money, the best rack would be the Thule Hitching Post Pro, # TH934XTR, that you referred to would be a good choice. It also tilts away from the vehicle for access to the back, and it does have anti-sway cradles. Finally, take a look at the Swagman Trailhead, # S63380, this rack features anti-sway cradles, tilts away from the vehicle for access, and the arms fold down for compact...

  • Hitch Mounted Bike Rack Recommendations for 2011 Honda CR-V
  • There are many hitch mounted bike racks that are compatible with the # 75547 Class III hitch installed on your 2011 Honda CR-V. If you want to avoid using an adapter bar, a platform style rack would work well. The Swagman XTC-2, part # S64670 is a very popular rack that is highly rated by our customers. The ratcheting hooks secure the bike frame, and work very well with womens bikes unless they are the step-through variety that only use a single down tube. A platform rack that hooks...

  • Three or Four Bike Rack and Recommended Hitch for 2003 Hyundai Santa Fe
  • Any of the hitches available for your Hyundai Santa Fe (see link) would work great for carrying 3 to 4 bikes. I recommend the Curt Class III hitch, part # C13505. Not only will the hitch work very well as an attachment point for a bike rack or other hitch accessory, it will also allow you to tow a small trailer should the need ever arise. If you plan on towing, you will also need a trailer wiring harness part # 118473, a ball mount like part # 2923 and a 1-7/8 inch # 19260 or 2 inch...

  • Will Reese Eclipse Bike Rack Fit a 2015 Toyota RAV4
  • Reese Eclipse 4 Bike Rack for 2" Hitches - Tilting Item # 63124 will fit your 2015 Toyota RAV4 as long as it has a 2 inch hitch receiver opening. If the rack has a 1-1/4 inch receiver opening then I recommend Swagman Trailhead 4 Bike Rack for 1-1/4" and 2" Hitches - Tilting # S63380. This rack will work with 1-1/4 inch or 2 inch hitches. But, if the trailer hitch on your RAV4 is a Class I then it is limited to a maximum of 2 bikes. I have linked video reviews on both bike racks for you.

  • Recommended Hitch Mounted Hanging Bike Rack for Kids and Adult Bikes
  • The Reese Eclipse 4 Bike Rack for 2" Hitches - Tilting # 63124 will allow you to put your bike and 3 kids bikes on it. The stabilizing trays will hold the bikes at a slight angle as you referenced, but with kids bikes it isn't as big a deal for ground clearances and level transport. If as they grow you want to level the bikes for safer transport, I recommend using the Swagman Deluxe Bike Frame Adapter Bar for Women's, Children's, and Alternative Frame Bikes # 64005. This creates a top...
