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.


U-Bolts

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.

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.


Comments
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.
-- Etrailer Expert Jenny N - 09/15/2022


by:

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




by:

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!




by:

It worked perfectly. Over 8100 miles and still going strong. I like the easy on and off with minimal scratches to the bike.




by:

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.




by:

This product is so well made, the heavy gauge steel brackets are a must. The product went together very easily and is very stout on the bumper of my camper. I actually put my 178 lb body weight in the bike brackets and had very little flex to the brackets. Great product!




by:

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.




by:

Parts fit first time on 4" travel trailer bumper. I like the option of reversing the up stands during storage to reduce overall length when not in use.




by:

Haven't used them yet but they look like good quality




by:

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.


Comments
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
Yakima Tube Top Bike Adapter Bar
$48.95
. This yakima bike adapter bar fits most bike frames because it extends from 14 1/2 to 31 1/2 inches.
-- Etrailer Expert Heather A - 11/17/2018


by:

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!




by:

Tough to strap on the bikes
One side
of the rack where it connects to the frame, sticks and has to be removed with a hammer




by:

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.




by:

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.




by:

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.


Comments
its still the same. I still use them and do recommend them.
DON-S - 04/21/2015


by:

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.




by:

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.




by:

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
Bob B - 04/30/2015


by:

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.


Comments
fixed the tight threads on the hold downs,and it works great,i still would buy it again.very nicely made.
tonyl - 08/30/2014


by:

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.




by:

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.




by:

Installs easy but doesn't handle women's bike very well very difficult to put my wife's bike on the rack




by:

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.




by:

Fit perfectly. Easy to install




by:

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 etrailer.com was excellent as usual.

  • Will Bumper Mounted Bike Rack Damage 5th Wheel Bumper
    If the bumper the carrier is attached to is a continuously welded (not spot welded) steel (not aluminum) bumper and the 70 lb weight capacity (35 lbs per bike) is adhered to like our product description states, the rack will not damage the bumper. If the rack is attached to an aluminum, plastic or steel bumper that is not fully welded all the way across, the weight of the rack and the bikes can damage the bumper, but if the rack is installed and used properly, there will be no worries...

  • Will This Swagman RV Bumper 2 Bike Rack Install Around the Spare of my 2004 Starcraft 3606 Pop Up
    This Swagman RV and Motorhome Bike Rack, # S80501, has a space of about 13 inches from where the rack would bolt to your bumper to the uprights of the rack. This should give you enough clearance to fit around your spare tire. I attached a picture to the right that shows many of the measurements of this rack for you to check out. You will need to measure the bumper of your 2004 Starcraft 3606 Pop Up Camper to determine if this rack will work. This rack is designed to clamp around a 4 inch...

  • Does the Swagman Around the Spare Mighty Bike Rack Hold the Spare Tire
    The Swagman Around the Spare Mighty Rack, # S80501, is designed to fit around a spare tire that is already mounted to the back of an RV or trailer and is not designed to hold the tire. I have included a link to the installation instructions for you to view. This rack is designed to fit on a continuous welded steel bumper that is 4 inches to 4-1/2 inches square. Make sure to check the owners manual to be sure the bumper can be used for this application. We do have several other bike racks...

  • Can I Mount Swagman RV Bumper 2 Bike Rack # S80500 to Square Bumper on 2010 Puma Travel Trailer
    The item you selected, Swagman RV Bumper 2 Bike Rack # S80501, is designed to attach to a 4 to 4-1/2 inch continuous welded square steel bumper like the bumper on your 2010 Puma travel trailer. It is not designed to attach to C-channel bumpers. You will want to check the owners manual of your Puma travel trailer for load carrying capacities of the camper and the rear bumper.

  • Will the Swagman RV Bumper 2 Bike Rack, # S80501 Accept a 28 Inch Diameter Trailer Tire
    The RV Bumper 2 Bike Rack, # S80501, mounts in such a way as it does not necessarily fit around the tire. I have included a picture that shows how it would mount to the bumper in relation to he spare tire. You can see in the picture that the upright arms of the rack are further out than the tire. You need to look at the width of the tire, not the diameter. The rack allows for 12 inches of clearance from the bumper to the upright bars of the rack for the spare tire. I have included a link...

  • Will the Swagman RV Bumper 2 Bike Rack Work With a Swing Down Tire Holder
    The RV Bumper 2 Bike Rack, # S80501, has a 12 inch clearance between the bumper and the upright bars. As long as your spare tire and swing down tire holder do not extend past 12 inches from the bumper, then this bike rack will work. You will not be able to utilize the swinging motion of the tire holder unless you completely remove the tire holder. I have attached a photo showing the dimensions of this bike rack for you to check out.

  • Bike Rack Solution Coleman Sante Fe Pop Up
    I'd go with the bumper mount at the rear of the pop up. Between the trailer and the tow vehicle is a viable option but since some setups have limited clearance here it's harder to know for sure if that's a feasible option. As long as you have a 4 inch boxed bumper the part # S80501 would fit and work well to carry a couple bikes.

  • How to Determine How RV Bumper is Welded
    Most RV bumpers have a plastic plug on each end, so the interior of the bumper can be used for storage. You should be able to remove the plug and look inside the bumper to see how the seam is welded, one continuous weld or a series of spot welds. A continuously welded bumper is stronger, and would be suitable for a bike rack like the Swagman # S80501. As long as the bumper is steel and continuously welded, the weight of the rack and that of the bikes carried on it should not have any ill...

  • Will Swagman Bike Rack Fit Spare Tire with Hard Plastic Cover
    A cover being installed on your spare tire would not prevent the Swagman Bike Rack part # S80501 from installing. The rack would still fit and work well. You might still compare the dimensions in the picture I attached with you spare tire so that you can know for sure if the rack will install.

  • How to Install the RV Bumper 2 Bike Rack # S80500 on a 3 inch Wide Bumper
    What you would need to do to install the RV Bumper 2 Bike Rack # S80501 on your 3 inch fully welded bumper would be to come up with a 1 inch spacer to fit between the attachment point of the rack and the backside of the bumper. This rack requires at least a 4 inch wide bumper so the plate/adapter would be the best way to make this rack work. I attached a review video for this rack for you to check out as well.

  • 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 to Fit Around Spare Tire on Motorhome
    Although we don't have a single bike rack that's designed to fit around the spare tire on a RV/motorhome, the Swagman # S80501 Around the Spare Mighty Rack would work well for you, assuming that your RV/motorhome has a continuously welded steel bumper (not an aluminum or spot welded steel bumper.)

  • Around the Spare Tire Bike Rack for a Pop-Up Camper
    The RV bumper rack that goes around the spare tire, part # S80501, requires a square tube bumper to properly support the bikes. Most pop up campers have a c channel steel bumper and would not be a good attachment point for this bike rack. If your camper is not a square tube bumper, we do offer towing bike racks (see link) that would put the bikes between the camper and the vehicle. This may be a good choice for you.

    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. Once the bike rack is on, the spare tire sits between the two uprights. 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....

    RV bumpers that are square with all for sides continuously welded are technically a part of the trailer's chassis and can carry a decent amount of weight.
