Recommended Bike Rack for Use on a 5th Wheel Trailer


Why not use with fifth wheel camper?


Expert Reply:

Not all bike racks are rated for use on the back of a 5th wheel trailer because of the extra stress that occurs with items hanging on a hitch there; bike racks that are rated for this use typically will have a reinforced or solid shank. The Swagman Quad # S64FR does not have a reinforced shank that would make it rated for use on the back of a 5th wheel trailer.

The best solution would be to use the Yakima Long Haul # Y02476, which will carry 4 bikes and is rated for use on the back of travel trailers, RVs, 5th wheels and flat towed vehicles. The anti-sway cradles do a really good job of securing the bikes and the rack comes with an anti-rattle hitch lock and cable lock for the bikes, so everything will always be secured.

I've linked a review video of this rack for you to check out.
