Video Transcript for Swagman Original 3 Bike Rack Review

Today were going to be taking a look at the Swagman Original. This is a 3-bike towing style bike rack. Its been designed to slide on to two-inch ball mounts. The part number on the 3-bike configuration is S64600. We also have it in a 4-bike configuration and that part number is S64675. A great feature about this rack is its ability to actually tow your boat or your trailer or whatever you need to tow and still have room to transport three bikes with you. Pulling the top pin here will allow us to fold this away from our vehicle.

As you can see in most applications, this gives us access into our rear cargo area. If we come up here to the top, well see that we have two black knobs. These black knobs are holding on our top plate. This top plate has three cradles that are built right into it. Each of these cradles are lined with a Crayton vinyl.

This is going to offer us a great gripping strength onto our bikes, but it also protects those bikes finish. Here in the side, we do have a hole that goes all the way through. This can be easily secured after placing our bikes in with a padlock. We recommend the use of part number 131D. You can find that on our website. As you can see, we can accommodate a wide variety of frames, numerous sizes of frames with our top plate removed.

We have this nice, strong, durable, black powder-coat finish that coats the entire rack force with the exception of where those cradles are of course and the handles. We can carry up to 35 pounds per bike onto the cradles and they offer you a limited lifetime warranty. Now that weve gone over some of the key features, let me show you how to install it on your vehicle. One of the requirements for ball mount that were going to have with using this rack is that from the ball or from the pinhole to the ball mount hole, we need to have a minimum of 10 inches. Today were going to be using part number 80232. We also recommend the use of part number 2736, 80233 or D-28.

Our first step is going to be to slide our ball mount right through our rack, then I like to stick it right into the receiver tube to get it up off the ground and hold it in place for me. Now well go ahead and secure this with our pin. Our pin and clip are sold separately. You can find them on our website. Theyll be listed under part number PC3. Slide our pin through and well just secure it with our clip there. Now well bring our rack all the way to the back of our ball mount here. Now, a measurement that you may be interested in is the distance from the front of the rack to the rear of the rack. Its going to be about three and an eighth of an inch. Once we have this in position, were going to use a 14 mm wrench and well tighten down three bolts. As you can see here, we have got two on the bottom, one and two, and then come right over here to the right side youre going to see the third. Once we have the three of these tight, the rack is going to be secured firmly onto our ball mount. Were not going to have any play in that joint. As you can see, anytime youre using a ball mount and the standard pin and clip, you are going to have some wobble. Weve got a nice product that can really take care of that. Its a locking hitch pin bolt and it has an anti-rattle device built in. That part number is 63232. You can find that on our website as well. Now that weve got the hitch installed onto the vehicle, lets load up a bike. We want to remove our black knobs that are located on the top. This will allow us to remove the top cover. We can then grab our bike. Well place it right up on to the rack. Well replace our top cover and then well replace our black knobs back on and well thread them on down. Something you might be curious about since this is a solid top plate is its actually going to hold one bike in there securely. As you can see, its got a real firm hold. This top plate is made to be flexible so they can accommodate a very wide variety of frame types. Now that Ive shown you how the one goes on here, let me load up a couple more bikes. As you can see here, weve got the rack loaded down to capacity. Weve got our road bike, our mountain bike and our womens frame bike here. We did go with a bike adapter bar here in the ladys frame just to keep it sitting nice and level. If not, we have the rear end kicked up really high in the air. This is made by Swagman. Its part number is 64004. You can check that out on our website. Were now going to take the rack out through our test course so you can see exactly what it looks like in action. Well start by going through our slalom. This would be just like were changing lanes or making a few corners. Well go around the corner into our alternating bumps. Here well be able to see some torque being applied to the rack, so well see how its going to move side to side when we might hit a pot hole or a curb. As we go into our solid speed bumps, this will show us the up and down movement just like if we we're going in and out of our driveway, parking lot or parking garage, something of that nature. That will complete todays look at the Swagman Original Folding 3-Bike Towing Bike Rack for two-inch hitches part number S64600. .

I missed two points when I ordered this bike rack ... 1 is that it is extremely heavy to lift and 2 the obvious but I missed it that the rack does not drop down ... like other racks I now own I was focused on the screw down holder which looks to be fine ... even for bikes I own that have different size cross bars The rack does sway from left to right ... just like my other racks ... great opportunity for Reese or someone to make a anti sway bar that would anchor on the vehicle hitch and connect to the vertical bike rack bar .. with a simple disconnect so the rack can be tilted Great service as usual from the people at eTrailer 262463

Works well, easy to use. Ideally it would have a 2" receiver at the end rather than a place for a ball. Be sure to have chain extensions ready when you are towing something. 145608

Bike rack arrived quickly and works well if no height adjustment is needed. The rack would be better if it had a hitch receptacle for height adjustment rather than the ball attaching directly to the rack. 91282

Perfect for my needs, how ever the ball end of the stem should have a 2" receiver so a drop down bar can be attached to insure proper height for the ball. Easy to assemble and use, holds bikes tight with almost no wiggle. Sway strap included is a bonus. 23785

Review from a similar Swagman Original in Hitch Bike Racks


Product is better and sturdier than I expected. I was shocked at how fast it shipped. It was extremely well packaged. I have not seen this type of care in shipping for a long time. I am very happy with the product especially at the price. It had several features I was looking for: 1. It is rigid to the hitch with no flopping. 2. The bikes can be securely locked to the carrier. 3. The unit can easily be locked to the hitch (with the additional locking bolt that I would recommend purchasing. 4. When not in use it can easily be stored FLAT in the storage area of my RV without taking up a lot of room. I would highly recommend etrailer and this bike carrier. I will be doing additional business with etrailer in the future! 485523

I used it to haul my bike down to Florida from Minnesota on the back of my RV. With the base being screwed tight to the hitch it traveled with zero problems. Very heavily built. Stores flat against the wall in the storage area underneath. I am extremely pleased with this product!

I purchased this as a gift for my boyfriend and it has been great! Mostly because it is very simple to assemble -- took about 10-15 minutes. Mounting the bikes was simple as well and had no issues with securing them properly. Great buy! 314367

Review from a similar Swagman Original in Hitch Bike Racks


This is a solid and well-engineered bike rack. I bought it because of the design. I need a bike rack to carry in the back of my pickup truck along with luggage on trailer trips. Bikes go on a rack I leave on the back of the trailer. When trailer is parked and we're ready to go biking I'll pull this new rack out of the pickup truck bed and put in on the truck. More convenient than my other racks, one of which is an extremely heavy platform style rack and the other one which has two upper support arms which doesn't fit well in the pickup bed along with the other items. This one lays flat, taking up minimal space. 121522

Review from a similar Swagman Original in Hitch Bike Racks


This rack worked perfectly. It had plenty of clearance between my tailgate and itself. I also bought the leveling bars for each bike and they also worked perfectly. They made bike even with the top of the tailgate and I could only see some of the handlebars. There was no excess movement to cause me any distractions while driving. It’s made out of heavy duty steel tubing and easily held the weight of our bikes. It was super easy to put together and attach to my hitch. You will probably need a 2.5 - 2 in. reducer like I did. Overall, this was a great product. I’d recommend it to anyone. 561184

I purchased this bike rack to be used on the back of our motorhome less than 10 days before we were to leave for vacation thinking that it would never be here in time. According to the information I found on the etrailer.com website, this is the rack that was recommended for a motorhome. The ordering process was simple, the rack was delivered promptly and we used it to carry 4 bikes on vacation, about 900 miles. It slipped into to trailer hitch and I used one strap to secure it. The rack did not sway or move during travel. I would recommend it to a friend and I would recommend etrailer.com, also. 208294

We ordered the Roadmaster dual hitch extension and the Swagman 3-bike rack for our Motorhome. We tow a vehicle and had our bikes on the back of our tow. They partially blocked our tow vehicle’s brake lights. We opted to get this assembly to attach to the coach and still be able to flat tow our vehicle. Assembly was easy, you will need two 5/8 hitch pins: 1 for the extension to the RV hitch and 1 to reattach your Blue Ox (or other flat tow assembly). Very sturdy construction. We are very pleased! 504673

Review from a similar Swagman Original in Hitch Bike Racks


It is a tough bike rack which I can use with my travel trailer. I would give it 5 stars but the rack does not swing down for unloading. However, I don't think there is rack suitable for a travel trailer which also swings down. E-trailer shipped the bike rack in a timely fashion and the rack is exactly as advertised. 514534


Comments

We do not have any bike racks that are travel trailer approved that swing away or down. If the bike rack is rated for motorhome, 5th wheel or camper use they have a fixed stinger that goes into the hitch receiver to avoid any excessive bouncing. We do have the Swagman trailhead part # S63381

Review from a similar Swagman Original in Hitch Bike Racks


So far, so good. It was shipped quickly, and it installed easily. I did take the advice of another reviewer and placed lock washers on to reduce the risk of loosening bolts. I had a welding professional look at the bumper to assure me that it was strong enough for the rack. I would say this is the most important step before anyone connects any rack to the back of a camper. 44397

Review from a similar Swagman Original in Hitch Bike Racks


seems like a no-nonsense heavy-built rack. Exactly what I wanted. The four bolts that hold the frame together seem to be strong tempered steel, which is great. And the clamps for the bike seem very strong and simple too. But the pin bolt, which everyone complains about, seems like it's indeed a weak point. I never trust simple clips to hold a pin in. And the pin is actually a bolt with threads. If you thread it in, it defeats the purpose of the bolt being loose so it can float around. And I would expect the stress to be greater on the threaded side, causing the bolt to bend. And anyways, vibration will eventually loosen the threads on the bolt and now you're hoping the catch pin holds. I ordered a heavy duty locking pin. I think it's a great bike rack, but they should really sell it without the pin, which gives it negative reviews. The price is decent without a pin. 208910

Rack is stable but cotter pin to too weak, even thought the rack is bolted to hitch. The cotter pin should go through the bolt not around, just in case.Otherwise, great! 54223


Comments

I agree that the cotter pin is weak. Doesnt seem right that it goes around the pin, instead of going through the pin.

-- comment by: jim - 11/16/2013

For what it is worth, we haven't seen around-the-pin clips fail any more than the throug-pin style. The nice thing about the around-the-pin style is that it can rotate and reduce the risk of bending the clip. With the through-pin, it is a lot easier to bend that clip.

Review from a similar Swagman Original in Hitch Bike Racks


I have been using this rack for a couple of seasons. Maybe a total of about five trips with the bikes mounted behind my trailer to a "CURT 4" BUMPER RECEIVER". I was so happy that I found a system to carry four bikes on my trailer. However the last trip that I used this product I lost all four bikes on Interstate 95. The pin/bolt sheered and I was dragging the bikes for a few miles before I realized what had happened. The situation was extreemly dangerous. I had to get out of my tow vehicle on the highway and disassemble the mangled bikes. I have come to realize that carrying bikes behind your trailer is very dangerous and this product is not adequate to do the job. I feel that the manufacturer should not be recommending to their customers that this product can be mounted behind a trailer. Please do your research before mounting or carrying anything behind your trailer. 30017


Comments

Some advice to anyone who may be using this rack. Please note that the weight limit is 35lbs. per bike. Always load the heaviest bike closest to the vehicle or trailer and the lightest bike on the cradle furthest from the vehicle.

Had a bad experience with this product myself. Installed a trailer hitch on the back of my Fifth Wheel so I could use this rack. I put four mountain bikes on this rack and drove 145 miles. got out of the truck and the vertical bar had bent about five inches and bikes were all scratched up and heading for the pavement. product not strong enough for trailer usage.

Great product! Works just as advertised. Very sturdy and secure. Will need to also purchase frame adapters if you have a womens or alternative style frame (any frame that is not straight across) Only problem is that the parts where the hitch receiver connects to the rack don't quite fit together. You have to bend metal out. (Difficult) This turned 15 minute job to assemble rack into a 1 hour job. 158255

Easy assembly, fits perfectly on the trailer hitch I have, secures my bikes to expectation. Would recommend this product to anyone that would like to haul their bikes more easily. 80249


Comments

I still like this product. It has held up pretty well, and remains a budget-friendly rack that is easy to use. I definitely like how I can take it off the car and not have it be in the way when I am not hauling my bikes with me. However, I wonder if I would have liked a roof rack better - when you load this rack up with bikes on a very lightweight car it becomes a boat sail of sorts and not only kills your MPG, it creates a different feel to your car as you drive down the road in windy conditions. What held me back from going to a roof rack was that I didnt want a permanent fixture on the top of my car - and I still dont, but I still wonder if I would like that type of rack better.

Derek - 05/14/2014

I am very happy to hear that you are pleased with your Swagman Hitch mounted bike rack. With the additional weight of the bikes loaded on the rack and on a smaller car it will make a difference in the handling, and it will have an decrease your MPG. However, using a roof mounted rack option is not as easy to remove (as you indicated), will also impact your aerodynamics and MPG. With the roof rack, and bikes loaded your mileage and handling will be significantly different (especially with crosswinds). Also, since you are carrying the bikes closer to the passenger area you will notice a significant difference in wind noise, even with the most aerodynamic bars, wind noise is still noticeable. I think your best bet is the hitch mounted bike rack option, but I would be happy to help you out if you need any other recommendations.

This is a very durable bike rack. It is well designed and built with overall quality in mind. I would highly recommend this product to anyone looking for a strong rack to carry 2 or 3 bikes. It was easy to assemble and simple to mount on my truck and RV 2 inch receiver. 134498

Review from a similar Swagman Original in Hitch Bike Racks


I needed a bike rack that I could mount on the back of our travel trailer. I reinforced the bumper and welded a 2" receiver on. I looked for a rack that could carry 4 bikes and was strong enough to handle being on the back of the travel trailer without breaking the bank. I ordered this rack based on the fact it was recommended for use on the back of RVs. I called on a Sunday and spoke to an actual person! I needed to know if it would arrive before a trip on the following Friday, which it did. The box was slightly damaged but the rack itself was not. I don't have much experience with racks but it seems this thing is very well built. Nothing fancy. Assembly was easy and quick. At first I was concerned about how far from the back of the trailer the bikes wound up, but it allows for the spare tire to still be mounted to the bumper with bikes on the rack. I loaded up a large tube aluminum frame bike and my son's BMX bike with no issues. I like the grooves in the rubber holders as my bike has the cables running underneath. We made a 300 mile camping trip with no issues. The clamping plate that holds the bikes down remained tight and held the bikes securely. The only thing I noticed was after returning home, the anti-rattle pin had loosened somewhat. I had torqued it down to the requirements called out for in the instructions (40 ft-lbs I believe), it might just be the fact it's new or maybe a lockwasher will do the trick. Nonetheless, I'm very please with this unit. Simple, strong and well-built. 27807

My only concern is that because we are going to use on our fifth wheel, it would be nice to be able to have choices on where you could put the connecting pin. It still appears to be far from the trailer. This is my second swagman, my other is over 20 years old and just broke on the way to our winter destination. I am wondering if I could have an additional hole drilled into the steel? 620371

This is a very well built bike rack with heavy powder coating for protection. I followed the instructions for assembly and would suggest that before you tighten any of the bolts you should assemble all of the parts and then tighten the bolts as instructed in the assembly instructions. We will be using this to haul our electric bikes on a motor home. 613574

A friend gave us their bike rack to travel from NY to SC. It was so flimsy and loose we did not use it. I borrowed my son's once in SC (this model), and it was simple and worked extremely well. I bought the same for our next trip to SC. It holds the bikes firmly with easy ability to lock bikes onto the rack, I just need to purchase a locking hitch pin. One drawback is that it does not tilt so you can't access cargo without removing the rack. Otherwise a good value! 577632

The locking hitch pin you will need for this bike rack part # S64152-2 is swagman threaded hitch pin lock part # S64027. This swagman bike rack does not tilt away for cargo access. I recommend swagman trailhead hanging bike rack part # S63365 with the tilt away feature. The trailhead tilts forward to allow easy access to vehicles rear cargo area. You will still need part # S64027 for the lock.

Review from a similar Swagman Original in Hitch Bike Racks


Very, very heavy. When you put your bike on the rack, the bike hangs very low. I have a Honda CRV and put my women's bike on the rack. When I drive over even a little teenie bump, the tires of the bike have hit the road and bent the bike. I will never buy this again. There is no way to adjust the height of the pipe coming out of the hitch. Terrible design. Very, very, very heavy. And I do not have a fancy bike but I was on the Interstate and hit a little tiny bump......at 55 miles per hour, it bent my entire tire and rim! Cost me over $100 to fix it. Never again. Only a child's bike will work on this. DO NOT BUY this bike rack. 573861

It sounds like you need an adapter bar to keep the bikes level on the bike rack. The adapter bar will give the bike a level hanging surface so they are not crooked on the bike rack. It should help them from hanging too low and creating ground clearance issues. I recommend the Kuat adapter bar part # UB01
Kuat Ubar Bike Frame Adapter Bar for Women's and Alternative Frame Bikes
$35.00
because it extends from 15 inches to 23 inches so it will work on adult womens bikes and childrens bike frames.

excellent product - I use this on a fifth wheel travel trailer, we went from south west Michigan to Maine and again to Key West Florida and had no problems at all. The only negative thing I would say, carry three bikes could get a little tight getting all three bikes on the rack. 542174

Do you have a question about this Hitch Bike Rack?


  • Bike Rack Recommendation for the Front of an A-Frame Trailer
  • First you will need a receiver on the front of the trailer if you want to use a hitch bike rack. We actually have the Bike Bunk # CC-275 but it is limited to 100 pounds total weight. Otherwise what I recommend is to use # D210 which has a receiver and ball mount platform allowing you to tow the trailer and carrier a bike rack with bikes. We also have some towing bike racks # S64675 and # S63390 you might be interested in. If you keep the bikes on the tow vehicle then you will not be...

  • Is a Hitch Bike Rack or Utility Trailer Best Option to Carry Bikes Behind 2008 Dodge Grand Caravan
  • By far your best option to carry 4 bikes behind your 2008 Dodge Grand Caravan is a trailer hitch and a hitch-mounted bike rack. Your mini-van will ride better without a trailer, there won't be as much stress on the vehicle, and it will be much more convenient to use a bike rack as opposed to a trailer so that's absolutely the way to go. For a trailer hitch the Draw-Tite # 75579 is a great option if your Grand Caravan does not already have a hitch on it. I strongly recommend checking...

  • Choosing Bike Rack to be Used While Towing a Camper
  • The Dual Hitch Receivers such as part # RM-077-2 cannot be used for towing a trailer. These receivers are meant for use with a towbar carrying a rolling load and an accessory such as a bike rack or cargo carrier. We offer a Curt Ball Mount with 2 inch Receiver, part # D210, which should work for your needs. This ball mount has a tongue weight capacity of 750 lbs, so the trailers tongue weight and the weight of the bike carrier plus the weight of the bikes cannot exceed that figure. Another...

  • Availability Of A Bike Rack that Can Be Used While Towing a Trailer
  • I do have some choices of three bike racks and four bike racks that can be used with towing a trailer. All of the bike racks that are available to be used with towing a trailer will need to be used on a Class III, 2 inch trailer hitch. The Swagman XC 2 Bike Carrier, part # S64650, will not work as a towing bike rack. I would recommend the Swagman Original 4-Bike Towing Rack, part # S64675. This is a four bike rack that mounts on the ball mount. If you have an existing ball mount and...

  • Recommended RV Bike Racks to Transport 5 Bikes on 5th Wheel Trailer
  • Any bike rack (or other accessory) installed on the rear of a trailer will be subjected to severe up-and-down and side-to-side forces. Bike racks designed for trailer use are built specifically to handle those stresses but there are no 5-bike racks suitable for use on the back of a 5th wheel trailer. The maximum capacity for a trailer-rated bike rack is 4 bikes. I do have a way for you to load 5 bikes but it will require you to use 2 racks, and one of those will have to be a ladder-mount...

  • Recommendation for Raised Ball Mount to Allow Me to Tow Level Trailer and Still Carry my Bike Rack
  • Although I do not have any type of hitch extender or dual hitch receiver that I would recommend for your situation, I do have a couple other options that may work for you. I would first start off by determining the exact amount of rise that is needed for your trailer to tow level. I have included an article which should help. Once you have this information, I would be happy to help you find the ball mount that will work best for you. One option that I have would be to use a ball mount...

  • Front Mount Hitch and 4-Bike Rack Recommendations for a 2015 Ford Expedition 4x4
  • Curt front mount receiver # C31068 will fit your 2015 Ford Expedition 4x4. According to our data owner's of the 2015 Ford Expedition frequently purchase the Hollywood Racks Road Runner # HR400. Other popular options include the DoubleDown # Y02424 and Hitching Post Pro # TH934XTR. I have linked videos on all of these racks. There are a couple of things to consider when carrying bikes at the front of a vehicle. The bikes could obstruct the front lights on the vehicle and restrict airflow...

  • Towing a 2200 lb Pop Up Camper with the Swagman Original Towing Bike Rack # S64675
  • As long as the loaded and ready to tow tongue weight of your camper plus the weight of your bikes remains under 350 lbs, then you will have no problem towing your pop up camper with the Swagman Original Towing Bike Rack, # S64675. I have attached an FAQ on how to determine your tongue weight for you to check out. This bike rack does not include a hitch ball, if you need a 1-7/8 inch hitch ball, then I recommend using the Convert-A-Ball Interchangeable Ball Set, # 802B. If you only need...

  • Can the Yakima FullSwing Be Used on the Back of a Trailer
  • Only certain bike racks are rated for use on a trailer or RV and none of the Yakima or any of the other swinging bike racks are rated for this application. I have no doubt it would swing out far enough but I can't recommend it for this application. There are other options though. Instead of carrying the bikes on the back of the trailer you could use a towing bike rack such as # S63390 or # S64675. Or you could use the multipurpose ball mount # D210 and put a bike rack in the top receiver...

  • Pulling a Pop-Up Camper and Using a 4-Bike Hitch Mounted Bike Rack Behind a 1999 Dodge Caravan
  • Depending on the size of the bikes and how many you intend to carry, turn clearance may become an issue, especially if the tongue of the trailer is relatively short. There is another method to tow and use a bike carrier that will provide some more clearance and reduce the chance of the trailer hitting your bikes. You could use Curt Multi-Purpose Ball Mount, part # D210. This will set the bike rack up another 4-3/4 inches, plus you can use a standard hitch mounted bike rack that you...

  • Recommendations for Towing a Trailer and Carrying Bikes with a Toyota Tacoma
  • The easiest solution would be to use a tailgate bike rack like the # SR26461. Your bikes will basically just set on the top of your tailgate with this rack. Your turning radius won't be affected, but it would make opening and closing the tailgate a bit harder for letting your dog out. So another option would be the Swagman Pick-Up Truck-Bed-Mounted 2 Bike Carrier # S64702. This will also allow you to carry your bikes in the bed of your truck, but since the rack doesn't attach to the...

  • Available Bike Racks for Use When Towing a Camper Trailer
  • The reason trunk-mount racks are not recommended for your 2014 Ford Escape Titanium is that their weight when loaded could damage the car's rear trim panels. The lift-gate sensors are not the concern. Since you are towing a camper there will be better options than a trunk-mount rack for transporting your bikes. We offer racks that install on the back of a trailer, on the top of a pop-up camper and also other items that allow use of a hitch-mount type rack on the front of your trailer....

  • Can Swagman XP Hitch Mounted Bike Rack Replacement Cradle 64860 Clamp to Square Tube?
  • The U-bolt for this replacement cradle would only be stable on a round tube. I would recommend a bike rack that mounts on your ball mount instead of on your kayak trailer. You might try the 4-Bike Swagman # S64675. Another option is a truck bed rack or roof rack. I have included links to those products below.

  • Recommendations for Carrying 5 Bikes on a 2006 Z71 Chevy Suburban 1500 Pulling a Travel Trailer
  • Yes, the Swagman XTC4 # S64665 bike rack that you reference will fit a 2 inch receiver on a front mount hitch on your 2006 Chevy Suburban. If you do not have one yet, I recommend the Curt Front Mount Trailer Hitch # 31302. Before you put such a large rack on the front of your vehicle, there are a couple of points to take into consideration. The first consideration is when carrying bikes on the front of a vehicle they will cover your head lights and probably obstruct your line of sight,...

  • Will Swagman Original 4 Bike Rack Fit 2005 Chevy Tahoe While Towing 2005 Rockwood Premium Camper
  • The solution for the ability to use the Swagman Original 4 Bike Rack # S64675 on your 2005 Chevy Tahoe, and tow your 2005 Rockwood Premium Camper is going to come in the form of a new ball mount. The Curt Multipurpose Ball Mount # D210, can tow a trailer and carry an accessory, such as a bike rack simultaneously, however, this application will depend upon the towing capacity of your vehicle and weight of your trailer. I have attached a short video describing the # D210. To determine...

This attaches to the ball mount in your trailer hitch and allows you to be able to carry up to 4 bikes between the rear of your vehicle and the camper. A longer ball mount is needed for this bike rack. You can check out part # 2736 or part...
