Recommended Bike Rack for 2 E-Bikes, Can Fold, and be Used on Flat Towed Vehicle


I am looking for a bike rack that: -can hold 2 e-bikes -can fold down out of way of car hatch with bikes on it. -can be on flat-towed vehicle and motorhome. Any suggestions? I like the Swagman E-Spec, but it does not fold out of way with bikes loaded on rack. What about the Curt 4-bike platform rack? Your site doesnt mention if it is okay with flat-towed vehicle.

We have a pretty decent selection of bike racks that fit your description.

If you're wanting a 2-bike rack like the Swagman E-Spec # S94FR then I recommend using the Hollywood Racks RV Rider # HLY64FR. This has both tilting and folding features, it can be used both on a flat towed vehicle and a motorhome, plus it has an impressive weight rating at 80 lbs per bike.

For a 4-bike option you'll need to use something other than the Curt 4-bike racks as they are not approved to use on a vehicle being flat towed. I recommend going with the Yakima HoldUp # Y02443-2 which can be used for a flat towed vehicle (isn't rated for a motorhome though), has a 200 lb weight rating (can hold up to 60 lb bikes), and the only real difference is that this is a wheel mount. This means that it is compatible with any bike frame style as long as it doesn't have any front fenders.

I've attached review videos of both recommended bike racks for you to check out.
