Bike rack

Looking for a good 2 bike rack for my fifth wheel. Lost a bike off the one I had last year.

I've used this one for about 50k miles - on the front of the truck, back of the fifth wheel, and back of my swivel wheel, and the bikes are still there. Very solid rack, could probably put a pair of dirtbikes on it and still be ok. Built in receiver and bike cable locks.

We are using the Swagman RV rack.
Rock solid, no bounce, secure bike toting.

Bike Rack

I am thinking about getting a Swagman Bike Rack as well. But, my wife wants a tricycle style bike. Can you tell me how far apart the wheel holders are so I can tell if a tricycle style bike will fit?

IAW DRV tech support, my receiver is rated at 350lb tongue weight, so weight will not be a problem. I don't know what the towing capacity is?

In any case, even if the towing capacity is enough, I will not be towing anything behind my Suites. While I can't speak for all states, at least in Florida towing behind your RV is illegal. If caught, I've seen the state police pull you over, ticket you, & not let you proceed until you remove the towed vehicle behind the RV.

As in stolen or fell off? Maybe damage?

Curious if theft is a significant issue.

I used the swagman for several years attached to my pinbox on my 07.5 DRV. Can't remember the model but it was their BEST 2 bike rack.

Thanks. Good to know it wasnít theft. I get a little concerned when leaving bikes on racks unattended for long periods.
