Is the Swagman XTC-2 Rated for use on a Fifth Wheel


Why is this bike rack not classified as a 5th wheel rack?


Expert Reply:

The information we provide on whether or not a bike rack can be used on a fifth wheel comes directly from the manufacturer. They certify their racks based on the safety of using it with certain types of vehicles and surprisingly there are several that are not compatible with motor homes and fifth wheels. Some of them just aren't designed heay enough for the stresses put on a rack so far away from the rear wheels.

For a rack that is similar and will work the Swagman Platform-Style 2 Bike Rack for 2" Hitches or RV Bumpers part # S64663 is almost identical to the XTC-2 and will clamp around the Square bumper on your fifth wheel as long as it is a 4 sided bumper and can handle the weight.

If your bumper will not handle the weight of the rack and bikes please let me know and I can provide further assistance.
