The new 2021 RV Rider carries 2 E-bikes (up to 80 lbs. each) on the back of an RV Motorhome, a 5th wheel or a flat towed vehicle. Special features include universal heavy duty wheel holders for heavy load carrying capacity. These wheel holders can fit any tire up to 5" wide and include a ratchet wheel strap. Locking frame grabbers secure the bikes in place. The frame grabbers can attached to a bikes frame or seat tube with a diameter range of 1"- 2". A locking cable and keyed alike hitch pin secure the bikes to rack and the rack to the vehicle. The bike rack folds up when not in use and can tilt down for rear cargo access when the bikes are not mounted (when used on an RV or motorhome).
A double walled receiver tube handles the extra weight of the electric bikes. An included hitch tightener reduces motion inside the hitch (receiver hitch must have a flange). A minimum class 3 trailer hitch is required to use this bike rack.
This bike rack is not compatible with bumper pull, travel trailers or bumper mounted hitch receivers.
5th Wheel Applications:
Assembly instructions easy to follow. Bike rack is very sturdy. We will need practice getting the included straps fitted just right.
Heavy duty, quality quality quality. We have used this rack many times and never doubt that the bikes are secure and safe. No scratching or bouncing. Because of the quality, it is heavy to lift. But I have my system down now and it works great. My wife and I are loving our new freedom in exploring and bringing our Boogie bikes with us wherever we go.
I like the bike rack it seams well built
We ordered this rack because it was one of the few that is rated to carry ebikes on our fifth wheel. Rack seems very substantial and solid, easy to use and holds bikes securely. The website says it requires a class 2 hitch capable of holding 350lbs. Manual says class 3. Our hitch is rated for 300lbs. Bikes and rack are 175lbs. so we hope we are OK. We will see in a couple of weeks when we hit the road.
