Definitely requires some assembly. Make sure the trailer is level when mounting it the first time. Works well with my pop-up trailer and I am able to mount the rack facing the trailer giving me extra room between my car and trailer. I was impressed by how strong and stable it is. Only downside, it interferes with my tongue jack on my trailer and I am unable to lock into the "stored" position for driving. I have use a tie-strap to secure the jack.



by:

I returned this item due to clearance issues. Although it may work well with a pickup it did not offer enough room between vehicles for 2 adult bikes. Etrailer being the great company they are agreed to return this and although one person I spoke to wasn't helpful his supervisor was able to help. I purchased 2 Thule roof mount racks and am satisfied. This has been the only time I've experienced any problem with Etrailer and it was handled quickly and effectively.



by:

This rack puts the bikes up front, keeps the weight off the flimsy rv trailer bumper, and as a bonus keeps the bikes within. Ire of my rear view mirror
With my truck, the bike rack is over the tailgate so it's perfect. When pulling with an SUV, I have to be careful because a tight turn can cause the extreme front end of the bike rack to contact the rear window. This mostly affect u-turns and backing into a campsite.



by:

Mount looks great and was easy to install. I hope this works for me but I think it may be a little light for my application. I will be mounting one big wheel electric bike on this. Still waiting for bike mount to come. I will be maxing out the 100 lb weight limit as my bike is 80 lbs and don't have the mount yet but I am sure it will be over 20 lbs. We shall see.

Still working great, I did add a brace to it just because my bike weighed so much and I didnt want it to fail. I have not had any problems with it.



by:

Well made. Handles the bike rack well



by:

Installed on a Grand design Imagine. It was fairly easy to install and it looks good. The bolts were sub standard after breaking two had to replace with stronger and one inch longer and I used thread lock nuts. The weight limit is low and is a factor when trying to find a bike rack. I found the lightest three bike rack I could find but when I installed it and put one cruiser bike on it I was within twenty pounds of the weight limit so only one bike could be carried and one lawn chair. I have a suggestion I know weight is always a factor but if the legs/post were a slightly thicker sturdier metal the weight limit could be increased to accommodate two cruiser style bikes.



by:

etrailer is such a high class business. From the minute my order was placed, to when it was delivered, they communicated the whole way from start to end. That kind of customer service goes a long way and please know how appreciated it is. The product is no different. Great product, no issues, easy installation.



by:

This rack works perfectly as expected. Have it on a 32 ft. TT now, previously on a 21 ft. TT.



by:

Easy to install and it looks like it will work well.



by:

Does not fit far enough back on the trailer frame. Our existing bike carrier fits way to far forward and can't be used. We're going to try a different carrier bout as of now it's useless.

FITS MY TEARDROP TRAILER PERFECTLY



by:

Works perfectly for what I need, I have a TAB400 with very little tongue room, and zero capability for a rear receiver hitch, this is PERFECT and works great!



by:

etrailer.com is my #1 go to source for my RV and trailer needs. Once again I received great customer assistance (from Sal) in identifying the high quality product that would best fit my need at a great price. Shipping was FAST (arrived in 2 days). Excellent product, excellent customer assistance, excellent company!



by:

First thing is we received the rack quicker than was expected. Thank you etrailer. Every where we looked showed it was out of stock. After calling etrailer thanks Robert, it was to us a couple days after it was ordered. The rack looks to be well built. Set up was simple. I rate this product a 5 so far on those 2 points. The only thing that needs to be change out is the 6” carriage bolts are to short. Most “A” frames are at least 2”X6” so after a trip to the hardware store for some 8” bolts the frame was buttoned up on the trailer. Now we wait a bit to load up for our next trip.



by:

Works great with bike rack.



by:

Easy to install and very secure. Works well with my Swagman two bike carrier.

This worked great for us
Easy install
and since we travel a great deal, this worked well with the bikes

  • Width Between Mounts of Swagman Straddler Bike Rack
    The bottom mounts of the Swagman Straddler Trailer-Mounted Bike Rack Carrier for A-Frame Trailers # S80503 are designed to be adjustable, so there isn't a single width or distance. They are adjustable between 10-1/2" and 31" so as long as you have that width available to you on your A-frame trailer, which is standard so you should, you can use the rack. I have added a link below to a video review for you to check out as well of the Swagman Straddler Trailer-Mounted Bike Rack Carrier for...

  • Is There a Tilting Bike Rack That Can Be Used On Both Travel Trailer and Vehicle
    It sounds like you are looking for a bike rack that will work on the back of a trailer as well as the back of a vehicle while not towing. If that is the case we do have some great options but what makes a bike rack rated for use on a trailer as not all are is because it generally has a fixed shank which allows it to be stronger. That said, with this fixed shank you will lose the tilting and folding features. The best option we have is the Swagman Trailhead 4-Bike Rack part # S63381 and...

  • Hitch Bike Rack Recommendation For The Front Of My Forest River Surveyor Travel Trailer
    The are options to help you carry bikes on your Forest River Surveyor Travel Trailer. You can carry bikes on the trailer hitch, provided the hitch bike rack is rated to work on travel trailers. The Swagman XC2 is not rated for travel trailers, so it will not work. Swagman Nomad Bike Rack for 2 Bikes - 2" Hitches or RV Bumpers - Frame Mount, part # S36FR, is rated for use with travel trailers. It also has a maximum weight capacity of 35 bs per bike.

  • Trailer Tongue Mounted Bike Rack Recommendation for Trailer with Limited Clearance
    Since you only have 2.5 inches of available space on the frame of your a-frame trailer the Swagman part # S80503 won't work BUT I have a great solution instead. Check out the Jack-It 2 Bike Rack for A-Frame Trailers # LC429756. This attaches between the trailer jack and the trailer instead so your limited frame clearance would not be an issue.

  • Option to Carry Bikes While Towing Pop-Up Trailer
    I have an option for an alternative method, but there isn't an adapter that will work as they are for flat towing, like you mentioned, instead of towing a trailer. What you can consider using instead is a trailer-mounted adapter, the Swagman Straddler Trailer-Mounted Bike Rack Carrier for A-Frame Trailers # S80503. This clamps onto your A-frame pop-up camper and gives you a 2" receiver to mount your bike rack; I have added a link below to a video review of the # S80503 being used on a...

  • Bike Rack Solution for Truck Towing Airstream Camper
    The Swagman Straddler part # S80503 was designed for what you are looking to do with your Thule Helium but it looks like you don't have a whole lot of clearance on the trailer frame for this to attach to. A different route that might fit easier is the Lippert Jack-It part # LC429756 which attaches to the mounting bracket of your trailer jack and wouldn't require any frame clearance. This also wouldn't require you to use your Thule Helium as well.

  • Bike Rack Solution for 2018 Winnebago Minnie 1710 that Has Lippert Jack-It
    Is there anyway to get your bikes under 40 lbs like maybe by removing the seats and/or batteries? If so, there's a really easy solution with the Lippert Bike Wing Adapter part # LC731137 since your trailer has the Jack-It adapter mounted to the jack flange. Other than that there really isn't a great bike rack solution since you'd need so much extension for your bike rack to fit and clear the trailer jack unless you'd consider a front hitch for the truck or there was a hitch at the rear...

  • A-Frame Bike Rack Recommendation for Trailer that Has Limited Clearance from Propane Tanks
    I checked with Swagman and the amount of space on the frame of a trailer that the brackets of the Swagman Straddler # S80503 requires is 4-1/2 inches since that wouldn't be enough clearance for you the best option would be to use the Lippert Jack It Bike Rack part # LC429756 which attaches to the jack mount and gives you a 2 bike rack that will be held up above the propane tanks. Check out the review video I attached for this as well.

  • Carrying Bikes at the Front of a Travel Trailer
    You could use the Swagman Straddler # S80503 if you want to. However you have to stay within the capacity of the Straddler which is 100 pounds. That means the combined weight of the bike rack you use and the bikes cannot exceed 100 pounds. The Swagman Dispatch # S44FR weighs about 51 pounds by itself meaning the combined weight of the bikes cannot exceed 49 pounds. You could instead go with Swagman rack # S64663 which weighs about 30 pounds. You would not use the hitch part that comes...

  • Bike Rack for RPOD 176T/Ram 1500 Limited 2019
    All of these options are very good choices in bike racks. What I think you are asking in your question is what choice would be best for use not only with a travel trailer but a good use with the Ram as well that still allows access to the tailgate. And yo have concerns about the weight and movement of four bikes behind the trailer when towing. Have you looked at the Kuat Pivot 2 Swing Away Hitch Extender for Bike Racks - 2" Hitches - Driver's Side, # PVD20B. This hitch extender converts...

  • Jack-It Bike Rack Compatibility With A 2019 Forest River No Boundaries 10.6 Travel Trailer
    Since your 2019 Forest River No Boundaries Travel trailer appears to have a welded on jack you'll have to remove the handle and slide the Jack-It 2 Bike Rack for A-Frame Trailers # LC429756 over the jack for this to work. This rack has a hole 2-3/8" in diameter for the jack to slide through. If your jack is larger than 2-3/8" in diameter then you'll need to use an A-Frame trailer mounted rack carrier like the Swagman Straddler # S80503 and then a hitch mounted bike rack like the Swagman...

  • Recommended Platform Bike Rack for Swagman Straddler
    The Swagman Straddler Trailer-Mounted Bike Rack Carrier part # S80503 will work with any bike rack that is rated for use on travel trailers and has a 2" shank.

  • Can I Use Swagman Straddler To Tow Swagman XC S64650-EXT Bike Rack On Travel Trailer
    Yes, you can use the Swagman Straddler part # S80503 to mount your Swagman XC-Extended Platform-Style 2 Recumbent Bike Rack part # S64650-EXT on the front of your travel trailer as long as you have the space and you do not exceed the Straddler weight capacity of 100 lbs. The weight of the Swagman XC-Extended Platform Style is 38 lbs itself and it's total weight capacity is 70 lbs so you could only use 62 lbs of that weight while using the straddler.

  • Can I Use The Swagman Straddler # S80503 With A Cargo Carrier?
    You could use a cargo carrier like our 24x60 Cargo Carrier # e98874 but I wouldn't recommend it because it weighs about 48 lbs and the capacity of the Swagman Straddler # S80503 is only 100 lbs. You wouldn't be able to load up much cargo before you went over the limit. It can be done but you cannot put more than 52 lbs of cargo on the basket. You can cut that down a little bit by getting an aluminum carrier like our 49x22-1/2 carrier # C18113. This carrier only weighs about 25 lbs which...

  • How Can I Avoid Clearance Issues With a T@B Nucamp 400 Tear Trailer and a 2001 Jeep Grand Cherokee
    I may have a solution to the potential clearance issue with your 2021 Jeep Grand Cherokee and the T@B Nucamp 400 Tear Trailer. The solution is an extended ball like the Brophy Ball Mount - 3" Rise, 4" Drop - 14-5/8" Long - Aluminum - 8,000 lbs # EA40. An extended ball mount will give you extra room between your vehicle and trailer. I have attached a link to the extended ball mounts that we offer. You will need a pin to attach the ball mount to your hitch, I recommend the Anti-Rattle Trailer...

The Swagman Straddler part # S80503 will work as long as you have space on the a-frame for the frame brackets where the rails are between 10-1/2" - 31" apart.

    Yes, the Swagman Straddler - 2-Bike Carrier for A-Frame Trailers # S80503 will work with the Thule Helium Pro 3-Bike Rack # TH9043PRO. That said, this carrier is only designed for two-bike racks, and Thule states that the Helium should not be mounted on any trailer so if any type of damage were to occur on either product they would not be covered under the lifetime warranty so you would have to be okay with that type of risk if you want to use the Helium with an A-frame carrier.

  • How to Carry Heavy E-Bikes on Back of Trailer
    While there is a way to carry your heavy e-bikes on the rear of a trailer, there is no way to safely carry e-bikes on the front of your trailer because there isn't a method that can handle the 100 lb - 110 lb capacity you need. So what you'll require is a trailer hitch for your trailer and an RV-approved bike rack. For a trailer hitch, I recommend the Adjustable Width Trailer Hitch Receiver for RVs, 22" to 72" Wide # 13703. This will work on trailers with a box frame, C-channel frame,...

I recommend going with Swagman Trailhead 4 Bike Carrier for 2" Hitches # S63381 and then using a different bike carrier for the remaining bike. For the remaining bike, you could use Surco 2 Bike Carrier Ladder Mount # SP501BR if your travel trailer has a ladder on the back. This clamps onto a ladder that has 1" tubing and can carry 1 or 2 bikes. If you do not have a ladder on the back...

The bars rotate so they are compatible with any width between but that will move the receiver either slightly forward or slightly back from the frame mounts. It can hold 100 lbs which will include the weight of the bike carrier. For instance the Swagman Trailhead # S63381 will take 32 lbs leaving 68 lbs for your bikes. You...
