Weights, Measurements, and Capacities of the Swagman Chinook Bike Rack on 2016 CR-V


How far out does a swagman chinook stick out at the farthest point when extended in its carry position on a 2016 Honda CR-V? Any problems with these 1-1/4inch carriers bending any over time? It seems to be a very heavy carrier for 1-1/4inch I have a 2inch hitch on the CRV.


Expert Reply:

On the Swagman Chinook bike rack # S64683 it measures 25 inches from the center of the hitch pin hole to the end of the rack when in the folded down position.

The 1-1/4 inch shank bike racks do not bend over time unless they are overloaded. This bike rack is rated for a maximum of 45 pounds per bike. The 2 inch hitch on your 2016 Honda CR-V won't have a problem at all.

Keep in mind that the tongue weight capacity of your CR-V is 150 pounds even if the hitch can handle more. You always go by the lowest rated component.
