Highest Rated E-Bike Rack for a 5th Wheel Trailer


Nice heavy duty hitch. Says its OK for motorhomes but not fifth wheel. With the anti sway pins and anti rattle stuff to keep the hitch from moving around, why motorhomes and not fifth wheels? Any other 80# per bike ratings for fifth wheel?


Expert Reply:

The distance from the rear axle to the trailer hitch is much greater on a 5th wheel trailer than a motorhome and motorhomes typically have a more sophisticated suspension than a 5th wheel trailer which means the ride will be much rougher on the 5th wheel trailer. The rough ride means the bike rack will have more stress to deal with which the Hollywood Racks Sport Rider SE part # HLY84FR is not rated for.

The highest rated per bike weight capacity bike rack for a 5th wheel trailer is the Swagman E-Spec 2-Electric Bike Platform Rack part # S94FR which is limited to 70 lbs. If your bikes weigh more than this and you cannot remove components such as the battery to get under 70 lbs then you only option is to carry the bikes on the front of the 2017 Chevrolet Silverado 2500 with the Hollywood Racks Sport Rider SE and the Draw-Tite Front Mount Trailer Hitch Receiver part # 65078.
