Expert Answers about Winnebago Hitch Bike Racks


  • Bike Rack Needed to Clear Rear Doors of a 2016 Ram ProMaster
  • I spoke with my contact at Swagman who said that when the center mast on the Swagman XTC-2 # S64670 is folded down it measures about 10-1/2". This is from the bottom of the shank that goes into the receiver on your 2016 Ram ProMaster and was taken with the 2" adapter on. So if you have a 2" receiver just measure 10-1/2" from the bottom of your receiver opening but if you have a 1-1/4" receiver you will need to subtract about 3/4" which means you will measure 9-3/4" from the bottom of your...

  • Best E-Bike Rack Recommendation for Motorhome 2017 Winnebago Navion G
  • For your application the Thule EasyFold XT part # TH903202 is the best option. It's rated for the rougher ride quality at the rear of motorhomes like your Winnebago, has the weight capacity for the heavier e-bikes, and has a ramp setup built into it which helps with loading and unloading. The tilting mechanism is not going to release when you hit bumps and would allow the slide out to function with the bikes loaded. The rack includes locks for the rack and for bikes loaded on it so it would...

  • Best Bike Rack for Winnebago Navion Motorhome
  • We have a couple of great options I'll go over for you, but in regards to the Kuat NV 2.0 Bike Rack # BA22B, this is a fantastic rack, but it is not rated for use behind any RV or motorhome. What that means is even though it may work fine, if anything should happen then it will not be covered by its lifetime warranty, and that's a gamble that a lot of people aren't willing to take considering its price. Swagman makes very reliable racks but if you are looking for the best options with...

  • Will Thule Helium Pro 2 Bike Rack # TH9042PRO Allow Rear RV Doors to Open
  • The Thule Helium Pro 2 Bike Rack # TH9042PRO referenced in your question does feature a tilt-away design that allows most rear hatch doors to open without interference but with swing-away doors like what you have on the Travato RV it's unlikely you will be able to open them completely without removing the rack. This is going to be the case with any tilt-away bike rack. The good news, as you alluded to in your question, is that when you do need to open the doors completely the extremely...

  • Best RV E-Bike Rack to Clear Rear Spare of Motorhome
  • Your best RV e-bike rack is the RV Rider part # HLY64FR which is RV approved for e-bikes and has the most clearance between the hitch pin hole and the wheel trays. This has 12 inches from the pin hole to the pivoting portion of the rack but then has even more clearance out to the center of the wheel trays where the bikes would be located which would be what would potentially interfere with the spare so based on that this would work well.

  • RV Rated Bike Rack for Use on a Winnebago View
  • We don't have a hitch mounted Swagman bike rack that is rated for RV use and can be tilted. The moving parts that allow a bike rack to tilt can create weak points and will likely not hold up to the additional stress placed on a rack when used on an RV. The Swagman Dispatch # S44FR is a folding rack because the center mast can be folded down, however not while the bikes are in use. Take a look at the video I've linked to see how flat it folds. The shank does have a 6-1/2 inch rise...

  • Rack For 2 Heavy Traditional Bikes On An RV With Very Little Lifting Required

It has cushioned pads to prevent bike to rack contact and the rise in shank provides 4" of additional clearance. Another option popular option with capacity to...
