Recommended Bike Rack for 3 Bikes on 2018 Crusader Trailer


Im looking for a bike rack that will carry 3 bikes. What do you recommend that will not drag on my 2018 Crusader M29BH 35 ft in length. My current rack mounts to a hitch and drags

When picking out a new bike rack for your 2018 Crusader 5th Wheel Trailer you will want to make sure you choose one that is rated for use on a trailer. Due to the rear bumper on a trailer being further back from the axle, a hitch-mounted rack has to withstand additional movement and bounce when compared to a bike rack on a standard passenger vehicle.

To carry your bikes I recommend taking a look at the Yakima LongHaul 4 Bike Rack # Y02476. This is a heavy-duty, trailer-approved rack that is compatible with 2 inch hitch receivers. Its sturdy steel construction and fixed design should prevent the rack and bikes from dragging like what you described with your previous rack. It also features anti-sway cradles that will hold the bikes at 3 different points and 2 safety straps that will provide additional support. A hitch and bike lock are also included.

I have attached a short video demonstration on this rack that you can check out as well.
