Looking For Swagman Bumper Mount Bike Rack For RV With a 5 Inch Continuous Weld Custom Bumper


I think that I would like to have your bike rack but my Heavy duty custom bumper is 5x5 not 4x4 0r 4.5x4.5. Can you provide me with a bracket that would fit my bumper for the same price?

At this time I believe the best way to carry two bikes on the back of your RV, if you have a ladder, is by using the Stromberg Carlson Carrier # LA-102. This bike rack attaches to most rung shaped ladders.(I have the rack measurements in the attached picture) The bikes are carried in the vertical position as shown in the other attached picture. It can carry 2 bikes up to 25 lbs per bike. This bike rack is an economical solution. I have the installation instructions attached.

The other option, which is a bit more expensive is investing in a trailer hitch such as the Curt # 13703. This trailer hitch is specifically designed to fit on RVs and motorhomes. This is a Class III and is adjustable from 22 to 72 inches wide. This hitch can mount on either a Box, C-Channel, or I-Beam frame and has a 2 inch receiver. I have attached a brief installation video.

The largest RV bumper mount bike racks like the Swagman # S80501 that you referenced is 4.5 inches.

I also checked into bumper mount hitches, however they do not come in a 5 inch mounting option either.
