How to Carry Bike Rack on Aliner Chalet Camper


looking here... Swagman RV and Motorhome Bike Racks - S80500 Have Aliner chalet camper, with rear tire on bumper. Dealer thinks a bike rack on back bumper will not be safe... Thinks bumper isnt sturdy enough. Do u have info!


Expert Reply:

Adding a bike rack like the Swagman Around the Spare Deluxe Rack, # S80501, to the back of your Aliner Chalet Camper would cause added strain on the bumper and as the dealer said, it may not be sturdy enough to handle the additional load.

In this case I recommend taking a look at the Stromberg Carlson Bike Bunk Trailer Mounted Bike Carrier, # CC-275. This would allow you to carry your bikes at the front of your trailer with a 2" hitch mounted bike rack like the Swagman Original, # S64152-2. I have included a picture which illustrates this type of set-up.
