When you go on a long distance trip, you need an especially strong and sturdy bike rack to transport your bikes. And if you’re taking your RV, you need a rack that will mount your bumper perfectly.
The Swagman 4-bike RV Bumper Rack is a perfect solution to your problems. It is a sturdy, well-built contraption that mounts on to your bumper in the most secure way possible. It will definitely ensure that you have a hassle-free journey, without you having to worry about your bikes’ condition.
The RV bumper rack has the following features:
- A capacity for carrying up to 4 bikes at a time.
- A design made to fit on to 4 inch to 4.5 inch continuous welded steel bumpers.
- Solid steel construction.
- Simple and easy to attach and use.
As you can see, the rack is of a simple, basic construction. This has its pros and cons. On one hand, it isn’t complicated and you can be sure that it will do a good job. But, on the other hand, you can never have too many security measures. This problem, however, can be easily fixed by adding your own bungee cords and straps to hold the bikes securely to the rack. You can also use a locking pin or some other apparatus to ensure that your rack stays in place. However, since the rack mounts on to your bumper, it is much more secure than a hitch-mounted rack would be.
Now this isn’t to say that the rack doesn’t have its positive points. For starters, it’s made from solid, strong steel. This makes it durable, so that it can work well for heavy duty purposes. It is also easy to install and mount, so that you have no problems with handling it. Also, this feature makes it that much less of a hassle to dismantle and set up the rack with each use.
The fact this rack is mostly made for RVs makes it ideal for long distance trips, heavy duty use, family vacations and so on. So if you have an RV, this rack is perfect for you. It also comes at an extremely reasonable price, especially for a four-bike rack. Don’t make the mistake of just buying it because it’s cheap, though. You need to see if it suits your requirements, because what you may need to go for is a heavily reinforced rack.
All in all, this is a good, base-line rack to opt for. It is perfect for those once-a-year family vacations, or picnics and the sporadic holidays.
