Trailer Hitch Mount Bike Rack for Recumbent Bikes on a 2012 Hyundai Elantra  


Can I put this 2 recumbent bike rack on a 2012 Elantra or would the Swagman be better, I have 2 LWB Tour Easys


Expert Reply:

The Swagman XC Extended rack # S64650-EXT is good for bikes with wheelbases up to 68 inches maximum. It looks like the Tour Easy bikes top out at a 69 inch wheelbase. We don't have a bike rack with a wheelbase maximum that will fit your 69 inches, but instead you could use a small utility trailer like the Detail K2 # K2MMT4X6, This trailer is 72 inches long and 48" long so you would be able to carry both of your bikes with ease. You would also need some straps like the Erickson Ratchet Tie-Down Straps w/ Web Clamps and S-Hooks - 1" x 10' - 500 lbs - Qty 4 # EM31352 and possibly some strap anchors like the Brophy Swiveling D-Ring Anchors w Backing Plates and Hardware - Bolt-On - 2,000 lbs - Qty 4 # RR6K-4. If you need a hitch or trailer wiring, please let us know.
