Fitment of Swagman Semi 2.0 on a 2007 Toyota RAV 4

Question:

I want to purchase the Swagman Semi 2.0. I am worried when the rack is down there will not be enough clearance between the hitch pin and the portion of the rack closest to the rear spare tire on the car. And even if it does clear will the bike be too close to the spare tire?

Expert Reply:

I can help you find out if the Swagman bike rack # S64686 will clear your spare on your 2007 Toyota Rav4.

What I would recommend doing to ensure this rack will clear your spare tire is measure from the hitch pin hole on your vehicle's hitch to the end of your spare tire. As long as this measurement is less then 14 inches the spare tire will not come in contact with your bike. This is because the measurement from the center of the hitch pin hole to the center of the first bike's wheel loop is 14 inches, and typically the handlebars and seat are mounted far enough away from the center of the rack to avoid contact with the spare.

I have included a images for you to get a better idea of how far the rack is from the vehicles bumper loaded and unloaded.
