Recommended 4-Bike Rack for Rear of 2013 Passport Ultra Lite Camper  


I want to install a bike rack onto the back of my 2013 Passport Ultra lite camper. I am putting the hitch onto the frame rather than using the bumper. What rack wouldu suggest to carry 4 bikes in the most secure manner possible.

Because of the bumpy ride experienced at the rear of a towed trailer, you'll want to use a bike rack that's specifically designed for use on the rear of a towed trailer.

The RV-suitable 4 bike rack of this sort I recommend most often is the Swagman XP # S64940 the rack is very strong and will withstand the bouncing and jarring experienced at the rear of an RV with no problem.

If you'll be transporting women's bikes or bikes with sharply-angled top tubes, you might also consider a frame adapter bar like part # 64005. The bar spans the distance between the handlebar gooseneck and the seat post, which provides a secondary attachment point for the bike rack. This allows the bike to be carried level, which maximizes ground clearance.
