How To Carry 5 Bikes On Jayco Travel Trailer 28BHS


We have a Jayco 28BHS travel trailer with a hitch for a bike rack. We are interested in getting one for 5 bike, but only see up to 4 bike options that are rated for travel trailers. Are there any 5 bike options for hitch mounted bike racks that are rated for travel trailers?

I do have an option for you however, there is not a hitch mounted bike rack option to carry 5 bikes on the back of the Jayco 28BHS. I recommend to use the Jack-It 2 Bike Rack for A-Frame Trailers part # LC429756 which will allow you to carry 2 bikes on the A-frame of the trailer above the jack. This option is also provides 22" of clearance above the jack which is what you will need for the Jayco 28BHS. I have attached a photo and video for your reference.

For the other bikes, Swagman Trailhead 4-Bike Rack for 2" Hitches part # S63381 which can carry 4 bikes so you have room for an extra bike if you need it. I recommend the Swagman Trailhead's rubber cradles with straps compared to the metal with vinyl cushioning of the other options that have a tendency to wear down over time and scratch the bikes. I recommend to protect your investment with part # S64027.

I know this was probably more expensive than you figured however this is the best way to accomplish carrying 5 bikes on your travel trailer.
