Platform Bike Rack Recommendation for Uses Behind RV that is Similar to Swagman XC


The swagman xcs bike rack. We want to know the weight limit on it. 70 lbs seems a bit light for 2 adult bikes. This will be hanging off the back of our RV

I have a perfect solution for you, but it's not the Swagman XC. Instead you would want the Swagman Dispatch part # S44FR which has a 45 lb per bike capacity and is rated for use on an RV.

At the rear of a trailer or RV the ride quality is very rough when compared to the ride quality at the rear of a passenger vehicle. Reason being the suspension isn't as sophisticated and there is a longer distance between the rear axle and the rear of the trailer which exaggerates the movement of the trailer when hitting bumps. Because of that only a few bike racks were designed to be reinforced enough for that type of use.
