The eTrailer has been a God send and we are so grateful. Our son-in-law died from COVID last year which left our daughter and two grand-daughters alone. This eTrailer was a gift which allows the three of them to get out for bike rides whenever they need to “clear their heads” and be refreshed in God’s glorious creation. This is the ONLY three bike carrier we know of… and Thank You for making it available. God bless.

I was excited to get this and eager to just pop it onto my spare tire like it shows in the video. 45 minutes later and I'm resigned to drilling an extra hole where the buttons are in order to tighten the hold over the tire, and chagrined that I had to "rear" my smaller bike frame angled upwards in order to seat it on the red rack receivers. This was because there wasn't enough room vertically on the frame or horizontally on the frame. Not sure how I would have been able to prepare for that, maybe there is some comment about smaller bike frames somewhere? One strap to secure the bikes is not enough in this situation, so things were strapped every which way, including the front tire of the bike so it wouldn't wobble everywhere. The bike and rack made it home for the maiden 60 mile highway trip, but I was not totally confident with it.

I do not want you to not feel safe to use the bike rack. From what you are describing it sounds like you might need to use a bike adapter bar. It would provide a horizontal mounting point by attaching from the bikes seat post to the handle bar post. To take a look at an example, look at part # 64005, as it fits with a lot of different bikes. Would you be able to send a picture of the bike rack installed and how the bikes are loaded on it?

Package came in great condition a lot quicker than expected. This is a great company to order from. Thank you

Seems quite sturdy. Retaining straps are a pain to get through the buckles. Recommend setting the rack on a flat surface, I used the truck tailgate, to start the straps through the buckles. Otherwise an easy install , fits tight on the spare tire. I got this to carry our folding wheeled walkers also known as roller-a-raters .
Moving them outside will free up a lot of room for the fur baby .

Good do not use it much as we have managed to carry our walkers inside. Still a well buolt rac.

We received the bike rack very quickly and installed it on our 2011 Rav 4. The rack seems quite sturdy but we couldn't be confident in using it. The straps holding the unit onto the spare tire, when tightened as much as humanly possible, still left the hooks somewhat loose. We simulated a bouncy dirt rocky road and the straps worked their way loose towards the sides of the spare tire thus loosening the whole unit. We felt that the whole thing could easily come off the spare tire taking our new bikes with it. We just felt like it was too risky. The way the Rav 4 spare tire is mounted makes it hard to get the straps all the way straight under the tire and, therefore, leaves them vulnerable to working their way loose and off the tire.

The 2011 RAV4 has two fairly unique features that makes fitting this particular rack a little bit of a challenge. The spare tire is offset on the rear of the vehicle and the spare tire has a smooth, hard cover. If the cover is removed, this rack will fit much better. Because of the offset tire, longer bikes could extend past the edge of the vehicle on the passenger side, which is less than ideal. Although its quite a bit more expensive, the Thule Spare Me, part # TH963PRO allows the arms of the rack to be offset so the bikes will be more centered on the rear of the vehicle.

CHECK THE WEIGHT CAPACITY!! It is designed for ultra-lightweight bikes, although it does not state that on the box or in the product description. The capacity is 33 lbs per bike, whereas most adult bikes are 40+ lbs and children's bikes are around 30 lbs. We loaded this rack with two adult bikes and a child's bike (unaware of the unusually low weight capacity) and the bikes fell off the back of our jeep onto the highway! My husband had to pick them up off the interstate before anyone hit them, risking his own safety. I contacted the company, telling them what happened, and they advised that since one of our bikes was 42 lbs, they would not return the rack (which I had only purchased 2 weeks prior.) I am grateful my husband didn't get hurt, but felt compelled to let others know. The company really should note this on the box or consider re-designing the bike rack to hold bikes of typical weight.

Toyota RAV4

For the price, not bad. This bike rack is a simple design, that's easy to use, but doesn't seem very secure. I have used this on an older model Rav4, which means the bike or bikes are going to stick out more on one side of the vehicle. There seems to be a lot of movement when hitting potholes and bumps in the road. If you don't plan on using this rack often, don't want to spend a lot, this may be for you. Sufficient, but not very sturdy.

2018 Jeep JL Wrangler Unlimited

I received this bike rack 2 days before it was even supposed to arrive! We had purchased another spare tire bike rack (Thule Spare Me) that would not work with the new Jeep JL due to it having to mount through the center of the tire where the camera is. This one installs over the top of the tire and then has straps that go around the tire to secure it. No tools required and we had it on the spare tire in 5 minutes. It seems very secure and we used a cable lock to lock it to the tire to prevent anyone from stealing the rack when the bikes are not on it. Will be heading out on a 1000 mile road trip soon, so that will be the real test.

  • What is the Difference Between the Malone Runway and the Malone Hanger for My 2021 Ford Bronco?
    The Malone Runway Spare Tire Bike Rack for 3 Bikes # MPG2148 and the Malone Hanger Spare Tire Bike Rack for 3 Bikes # MPG2147 are virtually the same rack. The only difference is that the Runway is 1.5 pounds heavier than the Hanger and the Hanger comes with anti-sway cradles to keep bikes from contacting each other during transport. Even though the anti-sway cradles are nice to have, I recommend going with the Runway because it is a more economical option. As far as spare-tire fitment,...

  • 2018 Jeep Wrangler JL
    We did do an install of the Malone RunWay 3 Bike Spare Tire Rack # MPG2148 on a 2013 Wrangler Unlimited and that is shown in the video I linked for you, but we have not yet had a 2018 JL Wrangler Unlimited here to allow producing a video for that model. I contacted Malone to ask about the fit of this rack on the 2018 JL. The responded that it fits a tire width up to a 265 size, meaning a tire that is 265 millimeters wide.

  • Bike Rack Solution for 2018 Jeep Wrangler JL
    The only bike rack solution we are going to be able to offer at this time for a 2018 Jeep Wrangler JL with the spare tire mounted light/camera is going to be a hitch solution. You'd need a hitch installed like the etrailer.com hitch part # e98856 and a bike rack with plenty of clearance to fit past the spare like the Thule Hitching Post Pro part # TH934XTR which would work well.

  • Will Malone RunWay 3 Bike Carrier Fit 35x12.5 Spare Tire and Are Locks Included
    The rubber straps you see on the Malone RunWay 3 Bike Rack # MPG2148 are the webbing straps that will physically secure and hold the bikes in place on the rack. These straps are indeed included with the rack. The locks that you referenced reading about in the description refer to a cable lock like the Malone # MPG2168, which will secure the bikes to the carrier in order to help deter theft. This is not included but I do recommend adding this to help protect your valuables. I spoke with...

    In order to properly secure the Malone RunWay 3 Bike Rack part # MPG2148 to the spare tire on your 2017 Jeep Wrangler, you are going to want to remove the spare tire cover. The spare tire cover could cause the bike rack to shift and become unstable which is why it is not recommended. If you will be carrying any bikes with an alternative frame then you are also going to need an adapter bar like part # MPG2165. In addition to this if you are carrying any bikes that are valuable you may...

  • Bike Rack Recommendation for a 2007 Toyota RAV4 with Rear Mounted Spare Tire
    While there are spare tire mount bike racks that will fit your 2007 Toyota RAV4 the Malone RunWay # MPG2148 will not due to the spare tire cover. You would have to take off the whole spare tire cover so all that is left is the spare tire and then you could mount this rack. What I recommend is a rack that mounts using the same location as the spare tire such as the SpareRide # Y02599. However, the available racks that do fit, like the SpareRide, hold 2 bikes maximum.

The rack is light weighing just 13 lbs and can carry 3 bikes with each bike weighing up to 33 lbs each.

    285 width means that your tire is 11.2 inches wide. We have a spare tire mounted bike rack that will fit this size but it's not the Malone. Instead we have the Hollywood Rack SR1 part # HRSR1 which fits tires that are up to 15 inches in width.

  • Will Malone RunWay Spare Tire Bike Rack Fit 2002 Jeep Wrangler X
    The Malone RunWay, part # MPG2148, is confirmed to fit your 2002 Jeep Wrangler as long as you have the factory spare tire. Your only catch is the 35 pound bike because the RunWay has a maximum capacity of 33 pounds per bike. Since you're so close you likely won't have an issue. I definitely recommend loading the heavier bike closest to the Jeep though. You also may need a bike frame adapter bar for the girl's bike to keep it level on the rack. I recommend the Swagman Deluxe, part # 64005.

    The Malone RunWay 3 Bike Carrier is a great addition to your 2017 Jeep Wrangler Sahara. Its mounting straps make it easy to install and remove according to your needs. Be aware that its per bike capacity is 33lbs, so you'll want to be sure that you are observing the weight limits of this carrier.

    To use a bike rack on your towable camper, you'll need to install a frame mounted trailer hitch receiver instead, like the Curt adjustable RV and camper hitch receiver # 13703, which fits trailers with frames between 22 and 72 inches. For a three bike rack, I recommend the Swagman Original # S64152-2 or for a 4 bike rack, I recommend the Yakima LongHaul # Y02476, both of which are approved to be used behind an RV or camper, like yours.

    If you want to use a spare tire bike rack like the Malone RunWay 3 Bike Rack part # MPG2148 on a vehicle with rear spare tire, you'll need to remove the spare tire cover while the rack is in use. In addition to scratches, the spare tire cover can cause the bike rack to shift and you run the risk of damage. In summary, if you want to carry the bikes with the rear spare tire you'll need to remove the cover. The other options entail installing a hitch or roof rack but these are much more expensive.
