Solution To Transport One Bike On A 2021 Keystone Montana 5th Wheel That Sits Too Close  


When carrying a bike on the rack behind a fifth wheel can you carry the single bike on the slot farthest from the hitch instead of closest to the hitch.? The handles on the bike are 26 inches and the one is going to come REALLY close to the camper and depending on the vibration and possible wiggle it may hit the back and I really dont want a hole in the camper! Thanks!

When loading your bike onto your Hollywood Racks RV Rider Bike Rack for 2 Electric Bikes # HLY64FR, you are going to want to load your bike closest to the rear of the rack closest to the trailer to prevent additional stress on the rack.

Since clearance seems to be a and you're only transporting one bike, I recommend adding a hitch extender like the:

-Roadmaster Anti-Rattle Hitch Extender for Tow Bars # RM-071-1075.

This is going to push your receiver opening for your bike rack out from your trailer 7-3/4" to give you the clearance you need.

It is also important to note that using any kind of hitch adapter will reduce your hitches overall capacity by 50%, however since you're only transporting one bike you won't have an issue.
