Recommended Bumper Mounted Bike Rack Rated for RV Use on 2018 Lance 2375 Travel Trailer

Question:

Bike rack options for mounting on rear of a 2018 Lance 2375 travel trailer? The factory installed 1 1/4inch receiver to the rear bumper wont be much use given the majority of bike rack manufacturers prohibit using them that way. Any suggestions or brands that do allow a rear bumper mounted bike rack? Thanks

For your travel trailer, I recommend the Swagman Platform-Style 2 Bike Rack for 2" Hitches or RV Bumpers # S64663. This bike rack will allow you the bumper mount option by utilizing a compatible 2 inch receiver adapter. This is not confirmed to work with other bike racks, but is designed for use on this hitch. I recommend using the Anti-Rattle Hitch Lock and Cable for Swagman Bike Racks w/ 2" Shanks # S64030 for security.

If you want a nicer option, I recommend you use the Curt RV Bumper 2" Trailer Hitch Receiver # E-100 which can mount on top of the bumper and has a 350 lb tongue weight rating. Then you can use the Swagman Escapee 2-Bike Platform Rack - 2" Hitches - Wheel Mount # S64693 which is a nicer RV rated carrier that has integrated locks for security. I've attached a video to assist.

Let me know if you have further questions.

Question:

Great reviews on the Curt E100, including one in which the reviewer installed it with the receiver on the top and not below, as he had clearance issue concerns. Can I flip it so the receiver is on top of the bumper? It would give me more clearance and eliminate the risk of bottoming out my rack or bike tires.

My contact at Curt confirmed you would have no problem inverting the # E-100 trailer hitch receiver to put it on top of your bumper instead of below to allow for greater ground clearance.

The Curt Adjustable 2" Hitch # C13704 should work really well on your Lance camper. It can either be bolted or welded on to the frame rails to provide you with a higher capacity Class III unit.
