What Bike Rack Can I Use for 2 Fat-Tire E-Bikes on a Flat-Towed 2018 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited?


What rack can I use to carry two fat tire ebikes on a 2018 Jeep Wrangler unlimited that is being flat towed behind our motor home ?


Expert Reply:

For a bike rack that is flat-tow rated that can withstand the weight of 2 e-bikes and will clear your rear spare tire on your 2018 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited, I recommend the Hollywood Racks RV Rider # HLY64FR. The RV Rider has an impressive 80-pound per bike weight capacity and is constructed with a bolstered-steel construction that will withhold the extra torque exerted on the rack at the end of your flat-towed vehicle. Another great feature of the RV Rider is the attaching clamps that rotate and slide up and down on the center mast. This is beneficial if you have a women's bike frame, step-through frame, children's bike frame, or an alternative-style frame because you will not have to purchase a bike frame adapter bar.

As far as rear-bumper clearance, if you are using a compatible 2-inch hitch like the Curt Hitch # C13392, you will have about 7 inches from the center of the hitch pinhole to the end of your rear bumper. Since the RV Rider has a shank measurement of 7-1/2 inches from the center of the pinhole to the closest part of the rack (when folded up), you will not have clearance issues. If you already have a hitch installed, I recommend measuring the dimension from the pinhole to the end of your spare tire to make sure you have enough clearance.
