Bike Rack Recommendation for Carrying 60 lb Bike at Rear of Travel Trailer


The Thule EasyFold literature states it shouldnt be used on the back of a travel trailer. However, I need a bike rack with a frame mount that will accommodate two step thru e-bikes weighing 60 pounds each. I want to have installed the Curt Trailer 2inch receiver hitch on the frame of my 31foot Winnie Minnie Plus travel trailer to accommodate a bike rack, and the Thule EasyFold is the perfect solution for two women with heavy bikes. Will the Thule work with the welded-on trailer hitch and if not, why not? I cannot find any bike rack that will accommodate my specific situation.

I do have a bike rack solution that will work well for your, but not every bike rack is designed for the rouger ride quality at the rear of a camper. I wish I could recommend the Thule EasyFold XT part # TH903202 for you as it is a great rack, but it shouldn't be used at the back of a travel trailer.

The most similar option is the Swagman Escapee part # S64693 which has a 60 lb per bike capacity and can be used at the rear of a camper so it would work well for you. This would work great in the Curt hitch part # C13704 that you referenced but you'll also need to use a stabilizer strap like part # 18050 per the requirement of Curt.
