Recommended Trailer Hitch Receiver And Electric Bike Rack For 5th Wheel Trailer


Looking for a class 3 receiver hitch for 2019 Prime Time Crusader 5th wheel to haul two 70 lb folding e-Bikes on a platform or a rack.


Expert Reply:

I would be happy to recommend a trailer hitch receiver and 5th wheel rated bike rack for your 2019 Prime Time Crusader 5th Wheel Trailer.

Starting with the hitch I recommend the Curt Adjustable Width Trailer Hitch Receiver # 13703 as it will fit box frames, C-channel frames, or I-beam frames that are 22"-72" wide. The # 13703 is a Class III receiver that has a 350lb maximum tongue weight rating and 3500lb maximum trailer weight rating making it perfect for carrying a bike rack. You will want to check with the manufacturer of your trailer to confirm the maximum tongue weight rating of the trailer, and use the lower rating between the trailer and the hitch.

Moving on to the bike rack, the only 5th Wheel rated electric bike rack currently offered is the Swagman E-Spec Bike Rack for 2 Electric Bikes # S94FR which can support two bikes weighing 70lbs each with tires up to 3" wide. If your electric bikes have wider tires you will need to add the Fat Tire Adapter Kit # S64679 which will fit tires up to 5" wide.

Lastly the Curt # 13703 requires stabilizing straps # 18050 for any non-trailer loads.

I included videos for each of the products mentioned for you to take a look at.
