Can I Use the Swagman Dispatch # S44FR on My 2018 Casita Travel Trailer?


If I have a receiver installed on the back of the Casita frame, can I then use this bike carrier?


Expert Reply:

Yes! As long as you have a 2-inch hitch receiver installed on your 2018 Casita Travel Trailer, you will be able to use the Swagman Dispatch # S44FR. This is because the Dispatch is designed for brute strength in order to withstand the added force and torque sustained on a travel trailer. Since the Dispatch has an exceptionally long shank length that measures 12 inches from the center of the pinhole to the closest part of the rack, you should not have any bumper clearance issues. However, it never hurts to measure the center of your hitch's pinhole to the outside edge of your rear bumper in order to make sure.

If you happen to have fat-bike tires up to 5 inches wide, you do need the Fat Bike Adapter Kit # S64694 for each bike. Also, if you have women's bikes, step-thru bikes, or children's bikes, I recommend a bike frame adapter bar like the # 64005 in order to give your bikes the straight, horizontal plane required to mount the bikes to the ratcheting hooks.
