Will a Bike Rack Clear the Rear Spare Tire On a 2012 Gulf Stream Innsbruck Travel Trailer


Wondering if this product will clear the spare tire on my 2012 Gulf Stream Innsbruck travel trailer. If not, are there any work-arounds? Item# 63124


Expert Reply:

In regards to the Reese Eclipse 4 Bike Rack part # 63124, the distance from the center of the hitch pin hole on the shank to the back of the upright is 8" therefore you will need to have less than this from the center of the hitch pin hole on your trailer hitch to the outer edge of the spare tire. I am not sure how your spare tire is mounted nor what type of trailer hitch you using but if it was mounted to one side of the bumper and you were use a bumper mounted hitch like the Curt RV Bumper 2" Trailer Hitch Receiver part # E-100 then I don't see any issue.

I have attached a photo of the above trailer hitch and bike rack to assist.
