Recommended Bike Carrier For Hitch On Class C Motorhome


Looking at hitches for a smaller class C motor home with a 2inch hitch and shared with me SUV. I see the Thule T2 and Yakima holdup2 racks are not listed as options for the RV but are for the SUV- is this just a warranty issue or is there a reason I should not consider these with an RV.


Expert Reply:

The bike carriers that are rated for RVs are built more rugged and able to withstand the additional shaking and jarring that you do not get with a typical passenger vehicle. If a manufacturer does not have a carrier approved for RVs then the warranty would be void.

We have a nice platform-style bike carrier that is rated for RV use. I recommend the Swagman Dispatch, part # S44FR. This carrier features rubberized hooks to hold the bikes securely and sliding wheel cradles that adjust for wheelbase up to 52 inches. This carrier has a weight capacity of 45-lbs per bike and has a shank rise of 6-1/4 inches for additional ground clearance.
