Trailer Hitch and Bike Rack Recommendations for Back of Grand Design Travel Trailer


I have a Grand Design 22mle that I want to add a receiver hitch to for carrying a bike rack. I have a bumper mounted receiver now, but want something i can attach to the frame and not rely on the bumper. Do you have any recommendations? Thank you.

The Curt Adjustable Width Trailer Hitch Receiver # 13703 is one of our most popular hitches for a frame mount installation. This fits with a trailer frame that is 22" to 72" wide which is pretty much anything on the market. You just need to make sure your frame is within these specs and then you can weld-on or bolt-on the hitch.

Once you have the hitch installed you'll need a bike rack that's rated for use at the back of a travel trailer (since there's more movement) and for that I recommend the Kuat Transfer V2 # KU84FR. This secures bikes by the wheels and has a 60 lb per bike weight capacity so it should work great for your application unless your bikes have front fenders.

Attached are videos of the hitch receiver and bike rack for you to check out.
