Will the Sport Rider SE2 Work on My Fifth-Wheel Trailer?


Our 2inch hitch receiver is welded to the 5th wheel frame. So is the above product recommended for 5th wheel trailers? If not, which hitch mount, fat tire bike rack do you suggest. It is not important to have the cargo basket. Thanks

I have a solution for you. Unfortunately, the Hollywood Racks Sport Rider SE2 Bike Rack w/ Cargo Carrier for 2 Bikes - 2" Hitches # HR1450Z-85 will not work with your welded hitch on your fifth-wheel trailer. The Sport Rider SE2 is not designed to withstand the extra torque on the back of that long of a trailer.

With that being said, for a bike rack that can withstand the force on your fifth-wheel trailer, I recommend the Hollywood Racks RV Rider Bike Rack for 2 Electric Bikes - 2" Hitches - Frame Mount # HLY64FR. In addition to having an 80-pound per bike weight capacity, the RV Rider can accommodate fat tires up to 5 inches wide. Also, the attachment cradles on the rack slide up and down and rotate to fit almost any bike. This feature eliminates the need for a bike adapter bar if you have a step-through, children's, women's, or alternate-style bike frame.
