What RV Hitch Platform Bike Racks Will Be Compatible With My 2015 Tiffin Zephyr Motorhome

Question:

So I see on your website that y’all are saying that the Swagman Semi2.0 is RV compatible. I went to the swagman website and it DOES NOT have this bike carrier as an RV approved bike carrier. The only RV approved bike carrier from swagman is An Escapee!

You are correct. The Swagman Escapee Bike Rack for 2 Bikes - 2" Hitches - Wheel Mount, part # S64693, is compatible with travel trailers, fifth wheels, motorhomes, and flat towed vehicles. It has a maximum bike weight of 60 lbs per bike. Please be aware that it is only compatible with tires that are 3.0" and smaller, many e-bikes come with tires that are bigger than 3.0".

I did spoke with a representative from Swagman and they do not categorize a motorhome as a RV, so the Swagman Semi 2.0 Bike Rack for 2 Bikes - 1-1/4" and 2" Hitches - Wheel Mount, part # S64686, is also compatible with motorhomes. However, it is also limited to carrying bikes with tires that are 3" or smaller.

If you are interested in a motorhome approved rack that has the capability of carrying bikes with wider tires, you might like the Hollywood Racks Sport Rider SE Bike Rack for 2 Electric Bikes - 1-1/4" and 2" Hitches, part # HLY74FR. This rack has a maximum bike weight of 80 lbs. However, it does not secure the bikes without touching the frame, but it can handle tires up to 5.0".

I have included product description links and video review links below.
