Ask the Experts about this Saris Hitch Adapters



  • Will the Saris Swing Away Extender SAR36VR Extend Out Past a 66 Inch Wide Bumper?
    I had the Saris Swing Away Hitch Extender for Bike Racks - 2" Hitches # SAR36VR measured and have some diagrams below that will help. I will say that the hinge will measure about 23 inches from the center of shank and will not extend past your bumper though, so just a heads up on that.

  • Distance From Center of Hitch Pin Out to Rear Edge Spare on Wrangler JL
    From the center of the hitch pin hole to the upright portion of the Saris swinging hitch adapter # SAR36VR the measurement is 9 inches so this would easily clear past your spare since it is 7-3/4 inches out past the rear hitch pin.

  • Can Doors On Mercedes Sprinter Open All The Way with Saris Swing Away Extender
    I have attached a diagram showing the dimensions of the Saris Swing Away Hitch Extender for Bike Racks item # SAR36VR. The arm extends out 23" from the center of the receiver hitch. It will most likely not be long enough to reach past your rear door with a bike rack attached. None of the extending arms are designed to fully accommodate opening both rear doors. The passenger door may be limited to slightly less than 90 degrees. The drivers side rear door will be able to open to its full...

  • Will the Saris Swing Away Hitch Extender Work with a Mobility Scooter
    The Saris Swing Away Hitch Extender for Bike Racks part # SAR36VR will work on any vehicle with a 2" trailer hitch. It has a 250 lb weight capacity so as long as the weight of the scooter and carrier do not exceed this you'll be good to go.

  • Will Exhaust Gases Affect the Saris Access Swing Away Hitch Extender
    The Saris Access Swing Away Hitch Extender for Bike Racks part # SAR36VR is made of steel which is powder coated for protection. It can sit pretty close to the exhaust on some vehicles but this won't create any issues as far as function goes. The most you could experience is a slight discoloration in finish.

  • Can Saris Swing Away Hitch Extender be Used with Thule EasyFold XT Bike Rack
    As long as you stay under the weight capacity of the Saris Swing Away Hitch Extender part # SAR36VR which is 250 lbs you can use it with the Thule EasyFold XT E-Bike Rack part # TH903202. It would not affect capacity of the bike rack.

  • Does The Thule Helium Fit My Jeep Wrangler 2021
    The Thule Helium Pro # TH9043PRO will work with your 2021 Jeep Wrangler, but the spare tire may cause an issue. You could get this swing away adapter # SAR36VR which will allow you to swing the rack away when you're trying to access the back of your jeep. This is a PERFECT product for Jeep owners. The Thule Helium seems to fit a stock tire on a Wrangler but if you've already upgraded wheels/tires then you may need the swing away adapter.

  • Can I Flip the Saris Swing Away Hitch Upside Down?
    It is not recommend to mount the Saris Swing Away Hitch Extender for Bike Racks item # SAR36VR upside down so that it swings to the drivers side. The weight from the bike and rack when not extended is sitting on top of the receiver mount. If you were to flip this around that weight would be hanging down and supported only by the locking mechanism. This would be putting unnecessary stress on a part not designed for that purpose and it could potentially fail. I recommend the Kuat Item #...

  • How To Open Rear Door on Jeep with Cargo Basket Installed
    I do have an option for you but the only way you'll be able to open the rear door on a Jeep with cargo basket installed is if you install it on a swing away adapter like the Saris Swing Away Hitch Extender part # SAR36VR. This can then be used with any 2" hitch mounted cargo carrier like the 24x60 etrailer Cargo Carrier for 2" Hitches part # e98874. This option allows you to get in and out of the rear cargo arear without having to remove the carrier. Please note, the adapter will reduce...

  • Is The Saris Freedom Compatible With My Winnebago ERA On A Mercedes-Benz Sprinter Van Chassis
    Yes, the Saris Freedom Bike Rack for 4 Bikes - 2" Hitches - Frame Mount, part # SA4414B, will work on your Winnebago ERA. Though it is a motorhome, we consider it a Mercedes-Benz Sprinter Van for hitch bike rack fits. Please keep in mind when this hitch bike rack is in use on your Winnebago ERA, you might not be able to open the rear doors when the rack is in the tilted down position and you are carrying bikes. This is due to the two doors opening outward instead of a hatch opening upward....

  • Can MORryde Jerry Can Mount be Installed on Swing-Away Arm
    The MORryde Jerry Can Mount for Jeep Wrangler TJ and YJ # MR69MR has a 2" shank so it will fit perfectly with either the Wilco Offroad Hitchswing or the Saris Swing Away Hitch Extender # SAR36VR. I recommend the Saris over the Wilco simply because it has a few extra connection points so you have more peace of mind about the swing-arm being secure while you're driving around. Attached are some review videos for you to check out.

  • Will The Thule Hitching Post PRo Work On My 2021 Jeep Wrangler With The Spare Tire?
    Measure from the center of the hitch pin hole of your receiver to the back of your spare tire. If it's more than 11 inches then the Thule Hitching Post Pro # TH934XTR will not fit, but I have something to solve that! I love the look and functionality of the Swagman Swing Away System # SAR36VR. This will give you the extra room you need to clear your spare tire on your 2021 Jeep Wrangler and will make the back hatch of your jeep just as accessible as if you didn't have the rack on the back....

  • Is There a Hitch for the 2022 Honda CR-V Hybrid Touring
    The Curt Trailer Hitch Receiver # C13397 will fit your your 2022 Honda CR-V Hybrid Touring. This hitch is made in the USA, has a bolt-on no drill installation and will provide you with a 2" receiver opening which is the most common size opening used for hitch mounted accessories such as bike racks, cargo carrier and ball mounts. If you plan to tow a trailer or use a carrier with lights you can get the T-One Vehicle Wiring Harness # 118741. This will provide you with a 4-way flat connector...

  • Sliding Cargo Carrier Fit for Predator 3500 Generator
    We do have some sliding hitch mount cargo carrier options that will work with your Predator 3500 generator, like the GearDeck 17 # H00604, but these are going to be full sized carriers - the GearDeck is 46-1/2x25 for example. If you're wanting a smaller carrier that was designed specifically for a generator then I recommend the 24x27 TorkLift Lock and Load Maximum Security Cargo Tray # TLA7752, but this doesn't have a sliding feature. The closest that you would be able to get to is using...

  • Recommended Cargo Carrier for 2021 Subaru Forester
    The specs show for the 2021 Subaru Forester a150 lbs. tongue weight and 1,500 lbs. towing capacity. I suggest the 60x22 etrailer Cargo Carrier for 2" Hitches, # e98991. This is aluminum construction and has a rating up to 500 lbs. which is far more than the rating for your vehicle but you know the cargo carrier can handle the weight your vehicle is capable of. The carrier itself is only 18 lbs. There a second option if you want a smaller size, the 19"x47" Curt Cargo Carrier, # C18110....

For your 2016 Ford Explorer I suggest the etrailer Trailer Hitch Receiver - Custom Fit - Matte Black Finish - Class III - 2" # e98867.

  • Recommended Hitch Pin Lock for etrailer Hitch Mounted Spare Tire Carrier
    For your etrailer Hitch Mounted Spare Tire Carrier # e98ZR I recommend the Threaded Anti-Rattle Hitch Pin Lock for etrailer Cargo Carriers - Keyed Alike # e99047. This fits a 2" hitch with a 5/8" pin diameter and has an inside span of 2-5/8". It comes with 2 keys and plastic cap covers to prevent corrosion. It also uses a pick-proof screw-and-lock mechanism for security.

  • How To Haul 2 Electric Bikes On The Back Of A Mercedes Sprinter RV And Still Have Rear Door Access
    The Swagman E-Spec Bike Rack for 2 Electric Bikes - 2" Hitches # S94FR and Saris Swing Away Hitch Extender # SAR36VR will work well together. This is definitely the setup I recommend on your Mercedes Sprinter Van RV since you would like access to the rear doors. This bike rack is compatible with RV's and travel trailers because it is built heavy-duty to withstand the extra bouncing and movement. The Swagman E-Spec has a weight capacity of 70lbs per bike, so it will be more than capable...

  • Recommended Bike Rack for a Ford Transit T250
    I do have an option for your Ford Transit T250, but we have not had the chance to install any of these on a full size van as of yet. However, this does not mean they will not work for you. With that being said, I suggest going with the Saris Freedom Bike Rack for 2 Bikes - 1-1/4" and 2" Hitches - Frame Mount # SA4412B. This will have no issues holding the regular men's style bike or the step through style bike. I recommend going with a frame mount as the fenders on the step through will...
