Versatile Bike Rack for Your RV

Swagman Dispatch

5th Wheels, motorhomes, and travel trailers have different suspensions than standard commuter vehicles. The Dispatch is designed to handle the extra bounce and sway that results from being placed further away from your vehicle's rear axle. It also gives your bikes 5" higher clearance than most other RV-rated platform racks. But it's not just for your RV. You can also install it in the 2" hitch on your car, truck, or SUV.


Padded, Ratcheting Hooks

Swagman Dispatch Ratcheting Hooks

The Dispatch's mast has a pair of ratcheting hooks that hold your bikes securely by the top tube. And because they move independently, you can carry bikes of different shapes and sizes. The hooks have soft padding that won't scratch or scuff your bike's paint.


Sliding Wheel Cradles with Ratcheting Straps

Swagman Dispatch Adjustable Wheel Cradles

The wheel cradles slide to accommodate bikes with different wheelbases. Hand knobs let you release the cradles to slide along the bike tray and adjust for your specific bike lengths. Each cradle has a ratcheting strap so you can secure your bikes' wheels during transport. If you need to carry fat bikes, there are cradles (sold separately) that let you carry bikes with tires up to 5" wide.


Folding Mast

Swagman Dispatch Folding Design

You can fold the mast down for easy access to your rear cargo area. Simply pull the spring-loaded release lever at the base of the mast and fold it down in either direction.


Complete Security

Threaded Locking Hitch Pin

The ratcheting hooks have lock cores in the release buttons so you can secure your bikes to the rack. Simply slide the hooks over your bikes' top tubes until they click and lock them in place. There is also a keyed-alike locking hitch pin that secures the rack to your vehicle.

i have purchased several items from etrailer.. i just purchased a swagman 2 bike rack for the 5th wheel. i talked with matthew..very informative and professional..i was suppose to recieve it on the 31st but got it on the 27th. put it together in about 1/2 hr..i have nothing but "GOOD" to say about these people and etrailer service... 870478

This is the bike hitch my dad (who was a machinist at a shipyard) would have designed. I needed a hitch that could accomodate my 42lb cruiser bike and my wife's bike with the low center tube. It took a little trial and error, but I found a pattern that works. Once you figure it out, it is very easy to load. I drove over speedbumps, rough road, etc...no movement at all. Everything (including the tire cradles) is metal. The only thing you can complain about is the weight...the box says this hitch weighs 54lbs and it feels every ounce of it. Also you will need a place to store it because it is all bolted together. 864435

We were looking for an RV rated rack that could mounted to back of our Wrangler or RV. The Swagman rack has enough tongue extension to miss the spare on the Wrangler. We can't open the back gate but we'll give that up for the solidly built rack. Once it's tightened down it does not move / rattle. This is a nice two bike rack. 818459

Sent back the Swagman 2 bike rack because it was too flimsy and the bikes banged together. Bought the hitch-mounted rack and there is no comparison. Great quality and heavy duty. The wheel cradles and the ratchet-down frame holders make it a great carrier. Katie M was more than gracious in taking the first Swagman back and getting the second to me' 273651

Review from a similar Dispatch in Hitch Bike Racks


We just got back from a 3,200 mile 31 day trip hauling two fairly heavy bikes. This bike rack locks down like a pitbull on a rabbit. With the ratchet top hooks and the lower wheel straps there is zero bike movement and getting the bikes on and off is a snap -literally. On top of that the threaded draw bar pin keeps bouncing to a minimum. Yes it's expensive. But I always say "You don't always get what you pay for, but you don't get what you don't pay for" I'd buy it again without a doubt. 494617

Review from a similar Dispatch in Hitch Bike Racks


I have an extremely low trailer (a 1966 Aristocrat LoLiner to be exact) and I was concerned about finding the right bike rack that wouldn't scrape on the ground when we drive in and out of driveways. This model turned out to be perfect- even when put on a very old, low, rickety old trailer! It is very easy to put the bikes on, we have both a large men's mountain bike and a small women's road bike, both went on in a snap. My favorite feature is the lock system that is included which locks the bikes to the hitch and the hitch to the receiver. I would absolutely recommend this product. Thank you to the staff member at etrailer who advised me of the perfect trailer-rated rack! 659356

Review from a similar Dispatch in Hitch Bike Racks


I have to park my 5th wheel in a space restricted space and I knew I would have to remove the bike rack after every trip. So, I began looking for the lightest weight, RV approved Swagman bike rack I could find that had the weight rating I needed for my heavy bikes. I have other Swagman products and feel like they offer good quality for a reasonable price. I considered the Swagman Traveler XCS (S64664), but my bikes were right at the upper weight limit for the Traveler, so I called Swagman. They said they had seen some failures of the wheel loops above the weight limit; so I went with the Swagman Dispatch (S64684). I'm glad I did. It's well made and seems conservatively rated. Easy to put together. It weighs 53 lbs, but is not really cumbersome to load since there is a lot to grab onto when it is unfolded. If you can pick up and load the bikes, then you shouldn't have any problem with the hitch. I especially like the threaded hitch pin that eliminates hitch wobble. The rack is easy to assemble. The ratcheting hooks work well, but took me a while to figure out the bike orientation/hook orientation/wheel position that worked the best for the rack. Good clearance between the bikes and camper and good ground clearance between the ground and the rack. This rack is solid as a rock and I don't see any movement while traveling. Pictures are with the anti theft cable in place. 425717

Review from a similar Dispatch in Hitch Bike Racks


This Swagman bike rack assembled in a few minutes. The bike rack provides extremely stable support of our bikes on the back of our 5th wheel camper. I have full confidence that the bikes are secure and safe. I am very pleased with these components and would recommend for any camper installation. Installation on back bumper required moving the spare tire to the left of center to mount the bike rack to the back bumper of the camper using the Swagman 2" clamp on trailer hitch receiver (S64025). The Dispatch 2 Bike Platform Rack extends to provide ample room for the spare tire and clearance for the bikes. Because of the design of my wife's step through bike frame we had to add the Swagman bike frame adaptor (64005) to hold the bike in the vertical position. 353937

Review from a similar Dispatch in Hitch Bike Racks


As usual, received item in good condition. Packaging was very good. Delivery time was faster than anticipated. All hardware was provided (nothing missing), instructions were good, and assembly was very easy with no surprises. Bike rack is for two vehicles and a 5th wheel RV. The main vehicle is a 2014 2500 HD Ram with a 6.6 foot bed with a 2 inch "sleeve" installed in receiver. Tongue length was adequate to clear the tailgate of the truck with no bike installed and rack collapsed. Just to try it with bike installed on the inside mount, lifting the crossbar "Hook" and tilting bike outward away from truck with bike peddle up gave just enough clearance to lower tailgate but recommend just removing the bike since it's so easy. The other vehicle is a 2016 Forester with a 2 inch receiver and installs easy with clearance for my tailgate to swing up and close with no bike mounted. And the bikes are very secure when mounted. The rack is heavy at 54 pounds but manageable. Good design and built well with heavy duty material. However, as with anything having plastic or rubber, I'll order replacement parts (wheel straps, etc.) before traveling. The lockable security cable is good with the exception that you need a 23mm wrench or socket for the tongue mount bolt head while the standard bolt with the clevis pin is a standard 7/8 inch. At least with the item I received. No biggie for me since I have both but something to know while ordering this rack. I anticipate that this rack will be fine for RV and vehicle use and highly recommend it for similar uses. Have not taken any long trips yet but will update if something occurs worth mentioning. 778579

Review from a similar Dispatch in Hitch Bike Racks


So far the rack works as described. I purchased this rack as it is specifically approved to be used on the back of my 5th wheel, replacing one that was not approved. This is my 2nd trip from Iowa to TX without incident. Only concern is that the ratcheting hold-down parts are plastic (4*s) not metal like my other rack. The theft cable is nice a little awkward to attach to the bolt but that may be due to my trailer. The back of my trailer is not flat but has a bump out, plus the bumper and hitch sit back a little under the trailer. To get both bikes on the rack I have to move the handle bar on one of the bikes away from the trailer to get clearance so it doesn't hit the trailer. 767969

The bike rack works great. Used it behind my fifth wheel and now our motor home. Towed across the county and back 7000 miles. This November took a trip to Florida. While in Florida I lost one of the j hooks. It was my own fault. I was able to get a replacement part from E Trailer. Great company to work with. 734492

Looks like a good rack. It is assembled and installed on a 2017 Ford F-150. I have yet to put a bike on it. The rack is heavy and well built. This rack will be used on my vehicles as well as on the bumper of my travel trailer. 725024

    The Swagman Dispatch 2 Bike Platform Rack - 2" Hitches - Frame Mount # S44FR will be about 33 inches from the hitch pin hole to the farthest point of the rack. You will need to measure your tow bar to see how much actual clearance that will give you for turning clearance.

    Yes, you can use a bumper mount RV hitch receiver, like the Swagman # S64025 to mount the Swagman Dispatch 2 Bike Platform Rack # S44FR. The # S64025 receiver attaches to your 4x4 continuous-welded steel bumper and provides the 2 inch opening needed to mount the Swagman Dispatch (RV approved) bike rack. The closest part of the Dispatch is 12 inches from the center of the hitch pin hole so it will definitely clear the spare on the back of your Rockwood Roo 19. The rack can carry up to...

  • Using a Swagman Dispatch Bike Rack with a Womens Step Through Frame
    To use a Women's step-through frame bike on the Swagman Dispatch, part # S44FR, you have a couple of options.

This will require you to make sure that the frame clamp is tighter than normal so the bike doesn't escape during travel. The other is to use a frame adapter bar like part # 64005 to provide a flat surface for the frame clamp to rest on and work as though...

  • Why Are Some Bike Racks Approved for Use at Rear of RV and Others are Not
    At the rear of a trailer or RV the ride quality is very rough when compared to the ride quality at the rear of a passenger vehicle. Reason being the suspension isn't as sophisticated and there is a longer distance between the rear axle and the rear of the trailer which exaggerates the movement of the trailer when hitting bumps. Because of that only a few bike racks were designed to be reinforced enough for that type of use. I attached a link to a page that has all of the RV approved...

    You will want to select an RV-rated hitch bike carrier for use on the back of your 5th wheel trailer. Standard bike racks made for use on cars and SUVs are not suitable for use on a trailer due to the additional stresses found at the rear of such vehicles.
