Once again, etrailer's service was superb. The hitch arrived very quickly, packaging was in good shape when it arrived. I chose this bike rack because it was one of only a few that are rated for a hitch on the back of a fifth wheel trailer. It is very sturdy and was easy to assemble. As reported in other reviews, the only issue was the threaded clamp knob that secures the bikes to the rack. The one with the lock on it came through with a defective lock mechanism that does not allow the knob to engage. That meant it could not be tightened. Swagman might need to re-evaluate this feature. I like the idea of the lock, but it is probably better to use the regular knobs without the lock to mount the bikes and then use a bike cable lock to secure them to the vehicle. I have no concerns about the racks strength or durability.

I have been using this bike rack for a year now, almost always on long distance travel between campgrounds around the US. I have been very happy with it. It rides well and the bikes remain very secure in transit.

So far, so good. I just received this last week and installed it on the back of my fifth wheel. We have four bikes (2 adult bikes and two kids bikes), and fitting all four of the bikes on the racks took some creativity but it was possible. The rack seems very sturdy, but we will see if it stands the test of time as we are full-time RVers who travel about 6,000 miles per year. Our last bike rack (Swagman XTC4) was completely worn out after about 14,000 miles of use on the back of our fifth wheel.

After one year, this bike rack is still performing very well on the back of our fifth wheel. We have travelled over 5,000 miles with our bikes in tow, and it still looks and operates like brand new. I was able to make four full-size bicycles fit on it, but you have to be creative.

How is your hitch fastened to your fifth wheel?
-- comment by: Richard N - 01/09/2016

In response to Richard N., we had a 2 hitch receptacle installed on the rear of our fifth wheel when we ordered it from the factory. The bike rack is installed by sliding it into the hitch receptacle.

This was the only bike rack that I could find where my daughter's bike could fit on it securely and without adding a bar. The rack is very stable and is easy to put on and off of my car as needed. I'd like to add that my neighbors have owned this same rack (just an older version) and their rave reviews caused up to research the Swagmann brand. Additionally, e-trailer has been great with communication. Very pleased.

One year later and we are still so glad we bought our Swagmann rack. The ease with how I can put it on and off is wonderful and I use the locking function frequently to keep my bikes safe!

Works great for older kids or adult bikes. Does not hold the younger kids bikes, as their frames are closer together.

You can use the Swagman Deluxe Bike Frame Adapter Bar for Womens, Childrens, and Alternative Frame Bikes Item # 64005 to carry your kids bikes on the Swagman XP.

This is very well made and Holds bikes very securely.USE: This is on my 5th wheel hitch had no issues. The only Con: is it wont fit most if the beach cruiser thick middle tube framed bikes..and/or the female low curved frames. Very good product. Etrailer also kept me informed on delivery status every step of the way-well done etrailer.

Hi Regan, Thanks for your feedback! In regard to your thicker bike frames, this bike rack fits bikes with frames up to 2 inches in diameter. I would recommend using the Swagman Deluxe Bike Frame Adapter Bar, part # 64005
Swagman Deluxe Bike Frame Adapter Bar for Women's, Children's, and Alternative Frame Bikes
, in order to fit your bikes onto the bike rack.

After researching the multitude of bike racks available, Pat at etrailer spent over 30 minutes with me on the phone answering my questions about which would be the best rack for our SUV and our particular bike styles. We settled on the Swagman XP 4-bike rack. The cradles are adjustable and be rotated so that the wheels of any bike can be kept parallel to the ground regardless of the angle of the bike frame. It worked as advertised, and I can 100% recommend etrailer as a very reliable source. The people there are interested in helping you, and they deliver. Great company!

Still perfect. Our bike trip last July to Montana and Idaho was a great test of the Swagman bike rack. We had four bikes totaling 80 pounds and had absolutely no issues. With the U brace keeping the rack base tight against the hitch, there was no wobbling at all. A great trip was made better by having the peace of mind provided by a sturdy rack to safely transport our bicycles. Thank you etrailer!

Works well. Would not leave home with a bike rack without it.

I've never been so frustrated with a bike rack until now. I have 5 kids bikes, none of them can fit on this thing. Either the bars on the bikes are to fat and you can't close the clamp or the frame is to small to fit over the bottom bracket. I bought the deal that clamps on the handle bars and bike seat for kids bikes, that thing doesn't work either. It's not just kids bike, my beach cruiser won't fit on the thing, the frame bars are apparently to big to get the clamp closed. So much wasted time spent on this thing..

If youre looking for a different style bike rack to transport a wide variety of bikes, one great option at a similar price point is the Lets Go Aero BikeWing T4 # B01458
Lets Go Aero BikeWing T4, 2+2 4-Bike Rack - 2" Hitches - Folding - Horizontal Wheel Mount
because it is adjustable enough to fit kids, womens, and alternative frame bikes without the use of an adapter bar. Another great option, though at a higher price point, is a rack like the Hollywood Racks Sport Rider SE4 # HR1400Z
Hollywood Racks Sport Rider SE Bike Rack for 4 Bikes - 2" Hitches - Frame Mount
as it holds your bikes at 3 points and offers adjustability to support kids, womens, and alternative frame bikes.

Overall (structurally) it is very well made and appears very sound. However, have 2 comments regarding potential improvements; i.e.: 1) Recommend having the anti-rattle nut feature for the 2" hitch attachment being included at both holes (as shown in the assembly directions included with our bike rack). The one that we got, only has the threaded attachment (anti-rattle feature) at the outer most hole on the 2" square tube. To use this feature, you don't get much hitch engagement, but if you use the inner hole (with more hitch engagement), you have a standard 5/8" pin with lots of play (excessive vibration). 2) Do not recommend the Locking Knob as currently provided. During assembly, we tested it by tightening it down, but could not remove it (even with the key). We needed needle nose pliers to remove, and when disassembled found that the internal locking spindle can lose contact with locking portion when tightened. Since we cannot trust this locking feature, we have ordered two new non-locking knobs; i.e. one for replacement and one as a spare. We also ordered a better locking design to avoid this problem in the future.

I spoke with my contact at Swagman and they confirmed that this rack is designed to only have the hitch pin hole closest to the upright mast threaded for the anti-rattle pin. If you are not interested in having two hitch pin holes or locking feature built into the rack, the Swagman Original # S64400
Swagman Original - 4 Bike Rack for 2" Trailer Hitches
or Yakima RoadTrip # Y02477
Yakima RoadTrip RV Bike Rack - 4 Bikes - 2" Hitches - Black
are both comparable bike racks you may be interested in. A locking cable like the Deadbolt 10 Foot Long Cable Lock # CAB-10
Deadbolt 10' Long Cable Lock
is great for securing your bikes to your vehicle.

Bought this to take the bikes for my family of four on vacation and I have only used it three times in the last 12 months, the most recent just a week ago. I remain completely happy with my purchase. The ability to angle the brackets allows me to easily fit our 4 bikes (adult male, adult female, 12 yr male, 10 yr female). My wife's bike fits okay without an adapter, but my daughter's bike required a bar adapter since the space between her frame would not fit over the brackets. One thing to note, to get my wife and sons bikes on, I have to remove the brackets for the bikes in front of them. Don't be stubborn, just do this. I scratched the frames putting them on the first time without removing the other brackets, and it ended up taking longer fighting them on. This is because of the way her bike frame is built and his is simply smaller. I am considering buying the bar adapters for them as well just to avoid having to remove the brackets, but we don't really use it enough yet to purchase them. My bike, with the wider frame, goes on quickly and easily. Tip: Take a picture of how you fit the bikes on! It will save you having to figure it out again the next time.

Ordered this bike rack, the locking / anti rattle / threaded hitch pin, & the adapter for an alternative frame bike. Very impressed with e-trailer dot com. Price was great. The order shipped quickly & arrived early. It was securely packed. Did A LOT of research & chose this bike rack as it was one of the few that was approved by the manufacturer for RV use. The bike rack went together fairly easily. The wife helped me as it was good to have a 2nd set of hands. Hint: I started assembling it on the garage floor but it's easier to do in a hitch insert. Finally used it on our class C RV this past weekend. All in all, no complaints. The wife was driving behind me & said the bike rack was fairly steady. Pleased with e trailer dot com & the bike rack!

The swagman xp bike rack we purchased did not work well for us. The locking cradle broke shortly after one use. The cradles slide when tightened, and as a result the bikes on the rack are not very secure and move around during a trip. I do not know how 4 bikes would fit on this rack. We have only 2 trail bikes and they were taking up a lot of the space. I did not return the bike rack because it weighted so much and the package would have been very expensive to return. The only reason I gave it 2 stars is because it is made with very sturdy steel construction. i would not purchase again. We went to a local bike shop, spent more money and purchased a Thule which we are very pleased with. Live and learn.....

- S64940

I bought it primarily to use it on my camper to haul the kids bikes when we go camping. It was a little harder to assemble than I expected it would be but the reason is because you have to position each holder individually for each bike. That slight down fall makes it nice though because each bike will be properly positioned and secured for travel. I bought the model with the factory lock, I'm glad I decided on that model. I'm also glad that it has the anti rattle feature especially going on a camper. The bike rack even works with a spare tire mounted right next to it.

- S64940

I purchased the Swagman because I needed a bike rack that was rated for a travel trailer and would take my bike plus three girls' bikes. It took me hours to figure out how to make it work, but I finally got it. It's hard to use and you have to take all the bikes on and off in order. I've since seen better and more easily use-able bike racks and ones that adjusts to fill your tow receiver better (reducing sway). The knob with the key doesn't tighten down or work very well. So I had to place it on an inside bike, allowing me to tighten down the outside bike with the non-keyed knob.

- S64940

1st thing-- only buy this unit is your looking for a RV hitch. Forget Yakima, Thule, etc. I have broken two of the other brands!! Little downside is that this is really a 3 bike rack. Top arm should be 2" longer if you don't want your bicycles banging together. They should make some changes to the bolts that tighten down the holders, or instead you leave the knobs on other wise you will scratch your bicycles knocking them on the bolts.

- S64940

Wow this rack is very heavy duty fits the hitch perfectly and fit all 4 of my bikes. It even comes with a stabilizing strap. I bought the Curt E 100 bumper receiver also a perfect inexpensive way to attach the bike rack to my 5th wheel bumper

Great experience. The team at etrailer sent me emails updating me on the status of my order during the shipment process and I'm happy with the quality of my RV seat covers and bike rack. Great value for the price. Thank you etrailer team!!

- S64940

I was very pleased with my Swagman bike rack. My first trip with it was a 3 1/2 hour drive. I watched the bike rack closely the entire trip and I found that our bikes stayed on the rack perfectly with no movement. I would definitely recommend this bike rack to anyone.

- S64940

First I want to say etrailer is top notch with customer service and support. The Swagman XP bike rack is sturdy and held up well carrying beach cruisers behind our fifth wheel. Solid product. I did check the pin bolt as others have said they may loosen during travel. After 1000 miles it did start to loosen but I make it part of my pre trip checklist and check it when I stop. The roads were very rough riding. Works exactly as expected. Great product and fantastic customer service.

- S64940

Works perfect. I bought it to put on the back of our camper into a hitch we had installed. It fits around the camper bumper which other ones I tried didn't. We did have to move the spare tire to one side though, still on the bumper, just moved down a little.

- S64940

Works great - heavy duty - highly recom mended

- S64940

High quality product. Instruction are a bit unclear during assembly of the rack. But otherwise the product seems to be what is advertized.

- S64940

Well we just tried out the swagman 4 bike hitch this weekend and overall it worked well. We used it on our 2009 flagstaff tent trailer which had a factory installed receiver hitch on the back. We had no problems at all however that being said the hitch does not work really well with bike wheels over 26 it just does not leave enough clearance from the road to the tire. Other than that I would recommend this hitch for use with a tent trailer.

- S64940

Good product and works well on my 5th wheel factory mounted hitch. Had a shipping issue which was addressed immediately. Lexus G. was very helpful during the process. This is my second purchase through etrailer and I will purchase from them again.

  • Trailer Hitch Mount 4-Bike Rack for a 2013 Prime Time Sanibel 5th Wheel Trailer and 2002 GMC Sierra
    There are only certain racks that can be used at the back of an RV or trailer. I have included a link to the 4-bike hitch mount racks that you can use. My top choice would be the Swagman XP, # S64640, that you have referenced and it will also fit your truck. The single arm and rotating cradles make it compatible with many different bike frame styles. Step-through frames or frames with a top tube less than 7-3/16 inches long would require an adapter, # 64005, so those types of bikes...

  • Trailer Hitch Mount Bike Rack for a Frame Mounted Trailer Hitch on a Trailer
    There are only certain bike racks that can be used at the back of a trailer or motor home. I have included a link to them for you to view. The 4-bike rack compatible with an RV or trailer that has the most clearance is the Swagman XP, # S64940. If measures 12 inches from the center of the hitch pin hole to the back of the upright bar. I do not recommend using any kind of extension or dual purpose ball mount like # D210. The distance from the rear axle on a trailer or RV and the receiver...

  • Recommendation for Bike Rack to Haul 4 Bikes on Camper Using Ultra-Fab 2
    My personal recommendation would be to use the Swagman XP 4 Bike Rack, # S64940, to haul your bikes on the camper equipped with the Ultra-Fab 2" Trailer Hitch Receiver, # UF35-946401. This heavy-duty steel carrier is loaded with features including cradles using thick, kraton vinyl cushioning and steel plates to secure the bikes to the rack, and locking knobs as a theft deterrent. Please keep in mind that although the hitch receiver has a weight capacity of 200 pounds, you will be limited...

  • Looking for the Perfect 4 Bike Rack for a 2011 Honda Odyssey
    For all of the specifications that you are looking for, I believe that a single arm rack with rotating cradles would be the best option, like the Swagman XP, # S64940.

  • Can a Bike Adapter Bar # 64005 Be Used on a Bike Rack at the Back of a 5th Wheel Trailer
    You may not even need to use an adapter bar when using Swagman XP bike rack # S64940, depending on the frame design of the bikes in question. The cradles can rotate so you can carry the bikes level. As long as the bike frames are 2 inches in diameter or less and are not step-through frames, adapters will not be needed. Should you need to use an adapter bar like # 64005 it can be used with the bike rack on the back of a 5th wheel trailer. I have included a link to a video that shows how...

  • Can the Swagman Adapter Bar Be Used with the Swagman XP Bike Rack
    Yes, the Swagman Deluxe Bike Frame Adapter Bar part # 64005 will work with the Swagman XP part # S64940. If you have any bikes with an alternative frame then this adapter bar will be needed to ensure proper ground clearance. I have attached a review video of the adapter bar for you as well. If you would like to lock the bike rack to the trailer hitch then you can do so using the Locking Anti-Rattle Hitch Pin part # S64027.

  • RV-Approved Bike Rack for Use on Small Tear Camper Trailer
    Good question indeed. Bike racks made for use on standard passenger cars should NOT be used on rear of any size of trailer. The reason is leverage. On passenger vehicles the rear axle and the hitch where the rack installs are not very far apart. But on a trailer it is often the case that the trailer's axle(s) will be much further away from the hitch. This extra distance, during driving, means additional leverage/stress will be applied to the rack. In the same way that adding length...
