Expert Answers about Jayco Hitch Bike Racks


  • Can Reese Eclipse 4 Bike Rack # 63124 be Used with Front Mount Hitch on 2018 Ram 2500
  • Yes, the Reese Eclipse 4 Bike Rack # 63124 referenced in your question can absolutely be used at the front of your 2018 Ram 2500 via a front mount hitch receiver. I do just recommend adding a cable lock like # e98891 and the HitchMate Threaded Hitch Lock # HE6001 to secure everything into place and help deter theft of your investments. As with any hitch-mounted rack used in this application you will just need to make sure that the rack doesn't obstruct your view too much. While it may...

  • Difference Between Swagman Bike Rack # S64664 and # S64663
  • The Swagman Traveler XCS # S64664 and the Swagman Bike Rack # S64663 referenced in your question differ only in how they actually attach to the vehicle or RV/trailer. Both bike carriers are indeed approved for use behind an RV or trailer. The Swagman Traveler # S64664 will actually secure to a 2 inch square ball mount. This is a nice option if you plan on towing a trailer behind your RV while also needing to secure the bike rack. The Swagman Bike Rack # S64663, on the other hand, includes...

  • How to Transport Two E-Bikes While Towing Jayco Flight Travel Trailer
  • We do have specialized hitch bike racks like the Thule EasyFold XT # TH903202 that can handle the higher weight of e-bikes but this rack cannot be used on a trailer (it can be used on a motorhome only). And we have racks made for use on trailers, like the Swagman Dispatch # S44FR, a frame-mount type that works on bikes with fenders like yours, but this does not have the required weight capacity since it tops out at 45-lbs per bike. There is currently no one product that meets all of...

  • Recommended Bike Rack for Pedego Boomerang with Ramps
  • The only bike rack we offer compatible with a Pedego Boomerang that doesn't require lifting is the Thule EasyFold XT 2 E-Bike Platform Rack part # TH903202 which is a phenomenal option. The Thule EasyFold as mentioned has a ramp for easy loading, unique frame clamp design which allows for attaching to bikes without a top tube, locks for security, and built-in wheels for easy transport.

  • Tilting Bike Rack Recommendation Similar to Swagman Original 3-Bike Rack
  • There isn't a way to convert the 3-bike Swagman Original part # S64152-2 that you referenced to a tilting rack. For a similarly priced rack that does tilt and would work great we have the Rola TX-103 part # 59403 which would work great. I attached a review video for this rack for you to check out as well.

  • SportRack Ridge Swing 4 Bike Rack Availability
  • The SportRack Ridge Swing 4 Bike Rack # SR2415 is available. As the rack's name implies it swings away - with the bikes loaded - so you can gain access to your vehicle's rear cargo area. The Ridge Swing can carry 4 bikes that weigh up to 35 lbs each and comes with an anti-rattle hitch pin to reduce the movement of the rack and your bikes. Additionally, please note that when using a hanging rack like the Ridge Swing you'll need bike frame adapter bar # 64005 if your bike is dual-suspension,...

  • Platform Style 2 Bike Rack to be Used on Rear of Jayco 5th Wheel Trailer
  • I have a solution for you, but the Swagman XTC-2 # S64670 is not rated for use on the back of a 5th wheel or towed trailer because of the extra movement that occurs at the back of those applications. Instead, I recommend that you go with the Swagman Platform-Style 2 Bike Rack for 2" Hitches or RV Bumpers # S64663 which is also a platform rack like the XTC-2 and has the same 35-lbs per bike capacity. The great thing about this rack is that it can be attached to either a 2" hitch or the...
