Trailer Mount Hitch For A 4 Bike Rack


Is there a hitch that would allow a 4 bike trailer mounted bike rack . Thanks


Expert Reply:

You can choose from either frame mount or bumper mount hitches to use a 4 bike carrier on a trailer. As long as your trailer has a 4 inch square continuous welded steel bumper, AND it has the capacity for the weight of the rack plus the bikes, then you will be able to use a 4 bike rack.

Frame mount hitches are much stronger but will require more effort to install. The Curt Adjustable Trailer Hitch Receiver part # C13701 is my recommendation there.

Bumper mount hitches are typically limited by the bumpers capacity but easier to install. You will need to reach out to the trailer manufacturer to make sure the bumper is rated for this use. I recommend the Curt RV Bumper 2" Trailer Hitch Receiver part # E-100 as a solid solution.

A 4 bike rack that is simple to load, and able to carry a variety of styles of bike is the Swagman XP - Folding 4 Bike Rack # S64960 which is a very popular solution among motorhome owners.

Included are video resources for all of these solutions with additional information.
