How To Carry E-Bikes On the Back Of a 5th Wheel Trailer


We have a 2017 Columbus Compass 5th wheel made by Forest River. I need to install a receiver hitch so we can load and haul two E-Bikes, total weight of 140 lbs. + - a few lbs. I know the 4inch bumper will not stand up to this load so need the frame to frame hitch, looking at the Curt 13703, can you tell me it this hitch will fit.


Expert Reply:

In order to haul two e-bikes on the back of a 5th wheel trailer it would indeed be a good ideal to install a frame mount trailer hitch, the Adjustable Width Trailer Hitch Receiver part # 13703 is the best option for this. Then for a bike rack, the Hollywood Racks RV Rider 2 Bike Platform Rack for E-Bikes part # HLY64FR is the best option since it's rated for use on the back of a trailer and has a weight capacity high enough for e-bikes.
