Swagman Around the Spare Deluxe

This convenient rack carries 2 bikes on your RV and provides clearance for a spare tire. Its sturdy steel construction has a black powder coat for corrosion resistance.

Anti-Sway Cradles

Swagman Around the Spare Deluxe Anti Sway Cradles

The anti-sway cradles rotate and slide along the dual arms to perfectly position your bicycles, reducing the need for a bike adapter bar. The cradles include durable rubber straps to hold your bikes firmly in place on the rack. Because the cradles secure each bike at three places (twice along the top tube and once along the seat post or down tube), rocking back and forth is virtually eliminated, preventing bike-to-bike contact.

Removable Pins

Swagman Around the Spare Deluxe Removable Pins

Removing one pin on each side of the rack allows easy access to the spare tire by removing the upright bars from the base of the rack.


Swagman Around the Spare Deluxe U-bars

The rack installs on your RV with U-bolts that are designed to clamp around a 4" to 4-1/2" continuous welded square bumper.

Carry 2 bikes on your RV without the need for a hitch. Mounts on your bumper over your spare tire. Anti-sway cradles prevent bike-to-bike contact. Solid steel construction with corrosion-resistant black powder coat finish.


Terrible product as it sits too low on the bumper. I mangled a bike wheel backing up to a slight swale. The bike wheel was only six inches off the ground, the swale was seven. My bad for backing up without a spotter but the bike rack is not adjustable & therefore worthless to me.

Not the wheel, ugh! Yeah, if it was taller, it definitely would have helped. You know, part # LA-102 is a ladder mounted bike rack that is adjustable for height. I bet if you used this, you wouldn't have that problem again.


I am very satisfied with the bike rack. Instillation was simple. The package had been previously opened and was missing 2 nuts but I had them in the garage. The product stated it would not fit on a bike with less than 18” between the seat and handle bar post but I drilled 2 holes in the top cross bar and set them on an angle as allowed in the instructions and they fit my mountain bikes with a cradle of 14”. I added a web strap from the tire support post, over the tire and around the bike cross bars to eliminate any swaying which did not appear to be a problem even before the strap. My 2 mountain bikes weigh 35.5lbs each and appeared very secure for a 700 mile trip.


Very well made easy to install. And works great for our 2 bikes. Very secure using straps provided with a couple additional small ratchet straps sold separately.



I dont use it a lot but have used it a few times putting 2 bicycles on it. And it held up great on the back of my pop up camper.


So far - first trip out - we love it. Or bikes are a little different in design so it took some creativity to get them positioned on the carrier. The shape of the frame rests on the bike rack made this pretty easy, though. Definitely a plus.

Bike on!


Good product, well made. Took me less than an hour to install. Have a small travel trailer, just me and my wife. We are both retired. Wanted to take bikes with us when we travel.Don't have a lot of room on the rear bumper so this was the best product for my needs. Pictures of the finished job included.


Great price for a very good product.


This bike rack was a perfect fit on the bumper of our RV! It sits just outside our spare tire and is very sturdy and solid. Can’t wait to take our bikes on our next trip!


I just have one bike to carry on the back of my trailer and this works great for that. Fits nicely around the spare tire. I leave the bottom brackets on and when I need it, I put in the top vertical bars. My only issue is the vertical bars do not slip in very nicely (very tight fit), so I have to pound them down. Hasn't been an issue, but is a pain. It also seems to be holding up to the weather OK and only minor rust so far.


This bike rack exceeded our expectations. Easy to install and our bikes are secure. Last trip was from our home in Riverside county up to a campground in Pollock Pines. Not one issue.


We have a 2019 Imagine camper with a spare tire on the back bumper. The description of this product said it would fit on our bumper with the spare tire. We tried every way we could and the woman's bike would not fit on there even with a frame adaptor bar attached to the bike. And with two bikes on the carrier, it was pushed up against the spare tire. The product is well made and I am sorry it would not fit our need.

I am sorry that the bike rack did not meet your needs. The maximum diameter of the bike frame can be no more than one and a half inches. Customer service will be in touch.


The product is exactly as advertised.


I was a bit disappointed in this product. I was hoping to use it to tote our bicycles south for the winter. Unfortunately the design of our bikes, both Giant brands, do not work on the rack because of the way the cross bars are configured. They do not sit well on the rack. I'm guessing you have to have bikes with a single straight bar between the seat and the handlebar post. Ours do not, especially my wife's bike.

Yes this bike rack does require the bike to have a level horizontal bar to hang from. The good news is there are bike frame adapters that will give you a level hanging surface such as part # Y02531. This yakima bike adapter bar fits most bike frames because it extends from 14 1/2 to 31 1/2 inches.


Viewing the installation video before installing made the installation quick and easy.
The product is well constructed.
Packaging of the product is first class.
I will order all my travel trailer accessories from ETrailer.

Just Great Holding up well


Easy to put together. Easy to load he bikes. Product was perfect for our need.-


Easy to install ,looks good,but hard to fit two old school 26" bikes
on racks.needed more length.Still i would buy again,good for newer bikes,Quality material.



fixed the tight threads on the hold downs,and it works great,i still would buy it again.very nicely made.


I like the basic design, but I really dislike the J hooks at the top. When you have a bike or two, hanging across the top, it is very inconvenient and time consuming to screw the bottom brace onto the metal rod of the J hook extending down.... all the way till the bike is tight. I went to a hardware store and bought 4 1 1/2 inch spacers and inserted them over the screw rod and that made it much better. It will still take 10 minutes to get the bikes off - but it's better than it was. I wouldn't mind paying more for an easier to use product.



its still the same. I still use them and do recommend them.


As of right now the install was very easy to do by myself. I was very pleased with how everything fit correctly too. Looking forward to putting our bikes on it next time we go out to our campsite.


eTrailer continues to be my 1st thought for RV needs. Selection, price, and customer service. I had selected a different rack, partially installed it, and found that it wouldn't work for my needs. eTrailer cheerfully accepted it back and exchanged it for this rack. This one has held up very well for nearly a year now and a 2000 mile road trip carrying two adult bikes. I did add a ratcheting strap from the upper part of the rack, around the spare tire, and to the bumper to minimize bouncing.


Unfortunately, I was not able to use the product. When attempting to move the spare tire to the center of the bumper so I could use the rack, the tire slipped out of my hand and snapped off the whole bottom of the tire carrier.

However, I just want to express how easy they made it to return the item. I live in my travel trailer full-time and have not yet been able to set up Wi-Fi, so I have not been able to use my printer. Ashley E. worked with me until I finally got the UPS label printed and successfully returned the bike rack. Ashley E. was very helpful and considerate while I was having my ‘issues’.

Will definitely do business with etrailer again.


This product was delivered on time as promised and was exactly as described, with very good videos and PDF File Instructions at the etrailer website. What more could anyone ask for ???!!!

Diane E.


Didnt work really well for us. Not very heavy duty and tendency to get lightly warped. For light use, it probably works ok.


just put it on the camper today 5-26-20,seems like a well built product. Fits two bikes nicely and well padded. will be going over the road for a couple of weeks and I think the rack will do fine holding bikes.Product is just what I wanted not too big and not too small and built well.Would recommend purchase good price and great seller fast shipping.


This bike rack works great on our fifth wheel. It was very easy to install and is not a real heavy product. We are limited to 135 lbs. on our rear bumper. This rack is just under 25 lbs. so we were able to mount 2 bikes on it and still be under our limits.

As always, etrailer delivery is fast. We love the videos they post of their products that we can review before we buy.


Frame hardware mounted easily. Configuration is what I needed. However, means to hold bikes to rack is intolerable. What is used is lock nuts encased in a knob. Understand the reasoning, but the threads are over 2 inches long. It takes forever to lock on a bike. Also, one knob broke off on first use. Bike attachment method needs re-work.


Ordering equipment sight unseen is a bit risky, but it's always a pleasure when the goods arrive as promised and the quality turns out to be better than expected. The around-the-spare-tire bike rack is a simple design and installation is a breeze. It seems sturdy enough, but we'll have to wait for some better weather to give it the first road test. All-in-all I'm very pleased with purchase, and the customer service provided by the folks at was excellent as usual.


We tried both the basic model and the improved model of this bike rack and the improved model is much better. Don’t waste your money on the cheaper model. The metal hooks are difficult to use, the vinyl coating pulls off and then your bike is being rubbed by metal. The rubber strap fasteners are much better. However, the round holes on the strap are really hard to get over the oblong male part. My husband has to help me. Not a Thule, but close.

  • Do You Have a Bike Rack Carrier for use While Towing a Pop Up Camper Trailer
    We do have an option for you. The Curt Trailer Hitch Ball mount with 2 inch Receiver, part # D210, would work great with a 2 bike carrier provided there is clearance in between the vehicle and trailer and your tongue weight capacities are not compromised. The tongue capacity is the lowest rating of the vehicle hitch or ballmount. As long as you stay within the lowest rating and have room this will work. A good bike rack to use with this mount would be # S63360 Swagman Trailhead 2 bike...

  • Front Bumper Bike Rack for RV
    We currently do not carry any bike racks that are specifically for the front bumper of an RV. There are a couple reasons for this; bikes mounted on the front of the vehicle can block your line of site, headlights and turn signals and the airflow to your engine. If your RV has a continuously welded steel bumper that is between 4"-4-1/2" wide you could make the Swagman Around the Spare 2 Bike Rack # S80501 work, but again, I'm not sure it would be the safest option for you unless you mounted...

  • RV Bike Rack Recommendation for an RV with a Rear Mounted Spare
    We have a bike rack solution for an RV that will mount around a spare tire (# S80501), but we do not offer a rack that is RV approved that will mount directly to a spare. As long as you have a 4 to 4-1/2 inch continuous welded bumper on your RV this rack would work well for you. Check out the review video I attached as well.

  • Bike Rack Options for the Back of a Motorhome that is Flat Towing a Vehicle
    Do you have a ladder rack at the back of your motorhome? If so, you could use a Ladder Bike Rack part # LA-102. If you have a 4 inch bumper that is continuously welded you could use a bumper mounted bike rack like part # S80501. Using a dual hitch adapter wouldn't be ideal since you are currently using an 8 inch drop adapter and none of the dual hitch adapters have that much drop.

  • Availability of Adapter for Bike Carrier on Front Hitch Receiver
    There is no adapter designed for bike racks on a front-mounted hitch for your Chevy pickup. The high-low adapters are only for use with a tow vehicle that will be flat towing another vehicle with a tow bar. Because the tongue weight capacities are very low on these adapters they are not designed or intended for use when towing a trailer, cargo carrier, or bike rack. I can not recommend using this part for your application. The problem with bikes mounted to the front of a vehicle is they...

  • Options for Carrying 4 Bikes on a Winnebago Adventurer When Flat Towing a Vehicle
    It would be possible to mount a tow bar and the Swagman 4 Bumper Mount Bike Rack, # S80600, on a motor home, but an issue that you could run into is limited turning clearance for the towed vehicle. The Swagman bike rack will stick out 34 inches from the bumper. If you find yourself is a tight turning situation, the vehicle may hit the bike rack or bikes depending on the length of your tow bar and the position of the bike rack on the bumper. A better option would be to carry the bikes on...

  • Options to Carry 2 Bikes on a Lance 1685 Travel Trailer That Has a 1-1/4 Hitch
    I have a few potential options for you, but we do not have any 1-1/4" bike racks that are rated for use with a travel trailer. Your first option would be to replace your 1-1/4" hitch with a 2" hitch. This can be done a couple of ways. The first would be using a frame mounted hitch like the Adjustable Width Trailer Hitch Receiver # C13702 (for frames 18" to 51" Wide) or # 13703 (for frames 22" to 72" Wide). You could also use the Curt RV Bumper 2" Trailer Hitch Receiver # E-100 if you have...

  • How To Transport 4 Bikes On The Back Of A Travel Trailer
    I have a solution for you, however, there are not any 4-bike platform carriers that are compatible with a travel trailer. This is because it is difficult for a bike rack to hold the weight of 4 bikes while also taking on the excess stress and bounce of the travel trailer. I recommend looking into the Swagman Platform-Style 2 Bike Carrier # S64663 which holds 2 bikes. There is not a travel trailer-approved platform rack that can hold more than 2 bikes. For the remaining 2 bikes you could...

  • Bike Rack Recommendation to Fit Travel Trailer with Rear Mounted Spare Tire

    The picture you submitted turned out to be an interesting piece of wood, but based on what you described it sounds like a ladder bike rack like the part # LA-102 that you referenced could work well. But for a bike rack that would work better most likely you should check out the # S80501. This should fit around the spare tire mounted on your rear bumper and provide you with the ability to carry 2 bikes. If you plan on carrying any womens or alternative framed bikes without horizontal top...

  • Recommended Bike Rack for Trailer with Tilting Bumper Mounted Spare Tire
    For your camping trailer that has a tilting bumper mounted spare tire, I recommend looking at an RV approved hitch-mounted bike rack like the Swagman Dispatch 2 Bike Platform Rack # S44FR. This will slide into a 2 inch trailer hitch receiver and hold 2 bikes of up to 45 pounds each. When the bikes are unloaded from the carrier, the upright mast can be folded down to allow you to tilt back the spare tire on your trailer for rear storage access. This carrier also includes a hitch and cable...

  • Could Two of the Swagman Around the Spare Deluxe 2 Bike Racks Fit on RV Bumper
    Yes, you could install two of the Swagman Around the Spare Deluxe 2 Bike Rack for RV Bumpers # S80501 on the rear bumper of an RV as long as there was clearance for both racks and spare to fit next to each other. From a capacity point of view you'd be fine.

  • Fit of Swagman S80501 Around the Spare RV Bumper Bike Rack on 2001 17 Foot Casita Travel Trailer
    If the bumper on your 17 foot Casita travel trailer is 4 or 1-1/2 inches square continuously welded (not spot welded) steel, the Swagman # S80501 Around the Spare RV Bumper Bike Rack would be a good choice. In order to determine if your rear bumper is steel, just check to see if a magnet will stick to it. If it will, it's steel. If not, it's aluminum. You wouldn't want to uses a bumper mounted bike rack on an aluminum bumper, as the weight of the rack and bikes could possibly crush or...

Looks like your RV has a 4 inch square bumper though so you could instead install the Swagman bike rack part # S80501 which would work well as it is rated for RVs.

    Installing and removing the Swagman Around-the-Spare-Tire Deluxe Rack, part # S80501 is a breeze. The bike rack is designed so that a spare tire can remain bolted to your rear bumper while bolting this bike rack around it. The bike rack is attached to your bumper by U bolts.

To remove the spare tire, once the bike rack is bolted to the bumper, you'll remove the locking pins located on the lower section of the uprights....

  • Spare Wheel and Tire Clearance for Swagman Around the Spare Deluxe Bike Rack
    The spare tire clearance for the Swagman Around the Spare Deluxe 2 Bike Rack for RV Bumpers # S80501 that you referenced is 12-3/4 inches. That means that you'd have 12-3/4 inches from the rear edge of the bumper to the vertical upright of the bike rack. That's wider than most trailer tires so you should be fine unless you have a large spare cover on the wheel. I attached a review video for this rack for you to check out as well.

  • Can a Bumper Mount Bike rack be Used While Flat Towing a Chevy Spark Behind an RV
    Having anything between the RV and the Chevy Spark has the potential to decrease the turning radius. It all depends on how much space there is to begin with as well as the bumper height versus the height at the front of the vehicle (if the bikes were up high enough the front of the car could do under the bikes during turns). We have a bumper-mount bike rack that is rated for use on the back of an RV and it is # S80501. This rack will measure approximately 26 inches from the RV bumper...
