Recommendation on a Swagman Bike Rack That Can be Used on Both a Ford F-150 and a Travel Trailer  


Looking at Swagman hitch bike racks. Looking for a rack I can use on both my 2015 Ford F150 and my travel trailer. My receivers a 2. Which racks would fit my situation?


Expert Reply:

Swagman has a few bike racks that can be mounted in the 2 inch hitch of your 2015 Ford F-150 and also rated to be used on a RV.

I recommend the Swagman Trailhead 4-bike Rack for 2 Inch Hitches, # S63381, is a bike rack that can be mounted in a 2x2 inch receiver hitch and also is rated to be used on an RV. The Trailhead rack has a 4 bike capacity with a 35 lbs per bike weight capacity. The distance between the center of the hitch pin hole to the bike rack upright measures 9-1/2 inches.

The Swagman Trailhead uses anti-sway cradles to help secure your bikes so they do not touch each other and damage your bikes finishes.

The Swagman Trailhead does include a threaded hitch pin, but I recommend the Locking Anti-Rattle, Threaded Hitch Pin for Swagman 2 Inch Hitch Racks, # S64027. This locking hitch pin will help secure the Swagman bike rack as well as help deter theft. I also recommend the # e98891 10 Foot Cable Lock. Use this lock to secure your bikes to this bike rack.

If you plan on carrying any women's, kids, or alternative framed bikes without horizontal top tubes you may also be interested in purchasing a Kuat Bike Frame Adapter Bar # UB01 to provide a horizontal top tube on your bikes to provide an attachment point. I attached a review video for this product also. This will allow the bikes to be carried more level and will provide more ground clearance.
