Bicycle Rack

I have a crossroads cruiser travel trailer with a welded steel bumper that is covered with diamond plate. I'm looking for a lightweight hitch mount rack that will hold 2 bikes that weigh approx 30 lbs each. The bumper looks beefy enough to handle it. Any recommendations for a good rack? Thanks

Best bike rack

Contact Guy at Arvika; He will listen to your needs and recommend the best option for you. He has done so for both of my travel trailer and my fifth wheel.
Both racks have been first rate and both attach to the front of the trailer not to the rear bumper.

Good luck and happy RV biking.

Thank you, my concern with this kind of rack is I don't tow with a pick up, I have a 2500hd yukon 8.1 liter. If I mount this on my trailer, my rear window would hit the bikes when i make sharp turns.

Bike Rack

Hi Phoneguy; I still suggest that you talk to Guy at Arvika.com Guy is very knowledgeable and eager to help. When I was first looking for a bike solution, Guy answered all of my questions and guided me in the right direction. Arvika has a wide array of products to fit most any situation. These products are very well built and do what they are supposed to do; also transferable between vehicles should the need exist.

Good luck and happy rv biking.

I just want to point out that they claim this upgrades capacity to 400 pound-feet NOT 400 pounds.
