Bike Rack and Hitch for Ebikes on Trailer


I have 2 ebikes weighing 53 lbs each will this product work on a trailer bumper?


Expert Reply:

There is a way to carry your 53 lb ebikes on the back of your trailer, though the Swagman Around the Spare Deluxe 2 Bike Rack for RV Bumpers # S80501 has a 35 lb per-bike capacity so it would not work.

Instead, you need a hitch designed to be used on the back of a trailer, the Curt # 13703 which will work on box frames, C-channel frames, or I-beam frames that are between 22" and 72" wide. For a bike rack you need the Swagman Escapee # S64693 because it is rated for use behind a trailer and has a 60 lb per bike weight capacity. This is a wheel-mounted rack so your ebikes would not be able to have fenders and must have wheel diameters between 20" and 29" as well as tires that are a maximum of 3" wide and a wheelbase that is no more than 51".

Please note this hitch is going to require the use of stabilizing strap # 18050 with all accessories such as bike racks and cargo carriers in order to maintain the warranty.
