Because of its innovative design, it can easily accommodate children's bikes, adult bikes, downhill bikes, cruiser bikes, full suspension bikes, BMX bikes, "Y" frame designs and much more, without the hassle of removing wheels. The Traveler XC easily adjusts to different bike frame sizes with the simple movement of the wheel hoops. The Traveler XC bike rack's frame grip arms have a soft-frame friendly coating to protect your bike's finish.

    In a day that customer service has seemed to be lost,this company goes way above to take care of their products.We had a problem with one of the hooks that held the bike down and when we contacted the Swagman company they not only replaced the entire rack,but they also paid for the bike.I wish more companies would provide this kind of service.Buying one of their products would be an excellent choice for anyone in the market for a bike rack.

    Using this on an RV

    May 24, 2014
    I did a lot of studying before I bought this bike rack. I am using it a little different then most. I have a class A rig and mounted the bumper mount on top of my regular hitch. I had to buy several things to make this work. I purchased shorter bolts and new lock nuts. I also purchased a hitch adapter to raise the hitch above my tow bar. I have invested about $100 above the bike rack but it is all worth it. I can now put my bikes on the back of the RV instead of the car and that will improve fuel mileage.

    Very satisfied with this purchase. Very easy to assemble and I love how easy it is to load and unload our 2 mountain bikes. The only thing I was a little disappointed in was I had to remove my spare tire and put it in trailer, but I was expecting that.

    We switched from a different rack where you had to screw down a metal plate to hold the bikes, this ratchet system is terrific and fast; Bike is much more stable in this new rack, sorry we didn't get one earlier.

    I am just getting ready to hit the road with this rack so I can't comment on performance yet but it is very well built and easy to use. The bikes are loaded and everything is very tight. Also the order went very smooth and it came in the specified amount of time. So far so good!!

    I'm very happy with this rack. It was easy to install, is simple to use, holds bikes securely, and doesn't have any rubber straps that break. Since it folds down out of the way I can still access the back cargo area of my vehicle without removing it. I like it much better than two previous bike racks that were the hanging style and involved rubber straps. I would buy this again, but don't expect to need to since it seems built to last.

    Best designed rack ever


    0 out of 0 people found this review helpful.
    November 21, 2013
    Holds two bikes securely with minimal effort. Most of the reviewers that did not give it 5 stars appeared to not think that the location of a rear spare tire or ladder may affect how good a fit it is without an extension. We have a recumbent and a girls bike. It took me longer than 15 minutes to set it up initially, because I experimented with every possible configuration (both bikes facing left or right or one each way) to make sure nothing bumped my ladder and to decide which hold down bracket should be on top. Now, it take 5 minutes to get the rack from the shed, mount on the back of my RV an load the 2 bikes. My recumbent is about two inches longer than this is designed for, but the hold down bar still holds it securely.

    This is absolutely the best rack out there. It took about 15 minutes to put together and another 15-20 minutes to get it adjusted to our two bikes. One boys bike and one girls bike. When you slide the clamp down, they will not move a bit. Nothing, nada. Excellent piece of equipment and would recommend for any one that wants to take along a bike or two. I'd give it 10 stars if I could.

    More durable that any other bike rack I have ever had. The only thing that I had a complaint about is there was a 4 bumper attachment in the box and it was not on the description of the rack and I ordered and paid for a 4 bumper attachment. No problem with returning the extra attachment, just had to drive to Campers World to do it. GREAT product!

    Our orig. bike rack was the hanging type that we bought while on vacation at a Wal-Mart. We put it on the back of our trailer and shortly after getting on the hwy were flagged down that something was wrong. The bikes were being dragged. One was completely destroyed the other shows road rage. They were new bikes, ridden for the first time at the park. The next trip they were over secured so we thought. We got to our destination and found the bikes had bounced so much that it marked up the back of our trailer. We tried to stop them from bouncing on several subsequent trips but where not successful. We recently bought a new 5th wheel that has a large window in the rear and didn't want to take the chance of the bikes hitting the window so we bought this rack. We are so glad we did. We've put more than 2,000 miles on since we bought this rack and have had no problems. The bikes are easier to put on and get off then the other rack and the peace of mind was well worth the additional cost.

    Bumper Mount Bike Rack

    We have only used the carrier 4 times but have found that it works great using the 4 bumper mount hitch provided or inserted directly into the truck hitch if we aren't pulling the trailer. The bikes ride securely on the back of our trailer with the wheels completely out of harms way going in and out of raised driveways. The bikes ride without any side to side movement. It replaces a carrier that the bikes hung from rather than ride on. Much safer and more satisfactory!

    XC Hitch style bike rack

    September 04, 2012
    All metal - which I expect to hold up much better than the metal and plastic rack I recently sent to recycle. I'm on a long trip and after about 2,200 miles the bikes were still firmly in position showing no damage even though we had traveld some bumpy roads (the rack is mounted at the back of a 30' fifth wheel trailer). The only improvement I'd like to see would make it easier to really lock the rack to the trailer and the bikes to the rack. I can do it, but it could be better. All in all, I'd buy it again.

    XC Hitch

    This hitch works very well. It's compact and easy to assemble. I had the hitch assembled on attached to my truck within 20 minutes. The wheel supports are easily adjustable for any size bike. The bike latching hooks work extremely well. I felt a little unsure of how the unit wiggles within the hitch, so I added a couple of bungie cords to prevent the rack from rocking. However, later I didn't bother with the bungies. The rack was plenty stable without them. The price was good, the delivery was fast. The unit is very light weight and my wife was able to easily remove the unit from our truck and place it in storage. We stored the extra pieces included with the rack. I have a 2 inch receiver on my truck that worked out very well. However, with the extra supplied pieces, you can also attach it to to a bumper. Gene

    Second bike rack we've owed. First was a four bike rack that four bikes wouldn't fit on if they we're disassembled. This rack is sweet for two bikes,ease of loading is quick and easy. Mounts to camper bumper and fits in 2 receiver, makes it more versatile.

    This bike rack just could not be any easier to use. It is extremely easy to load the bikes on without any help. The mechanism to secure them is simple and can be done with one hand while just balancing the bike on the base. I've used this several times now on the back of my travel trailer and the bikes are very secure. They don't move around and the way this is designed it seems pretty much impossible for them to get scratched up while in transit. I am very happy with this purchase.

    Great unit that was very easy to assemble. Nice thing about this bike rack is it can either be attached directly to your RVs bumper or works directly off a receiver hitch. The rack is solidly built and holds two regular sized bikes without any problems. I recommend this to anyone considering buying a bike rack.

    I have had several bike racks and this is the best one I have owned. It holds the bikes steady. No extra tie downs needed. The way the hitch pin screws into the reciever it works great keeping the bikes from bounceing. Also with the bumper mount I can still use my other hitch to hold my extend a tray.

    Hitch works well


    0 out of 0 people found this review helpful.
    August 22, 2011
    This hitch assembled easily and works well. The only criticism I have is that the arm which attaches to the receiver hitch on my RV could be a tad longer (1/2 inch), because as mounted the inside bicycle handlebar makes contact with the back of the RV. We solved that by making a pad for the end of the handlebar. Another solution, which we did not use, would have been to attach the included bumper mount to the back bumper. If we had used the included bumper mount, it would have given us more mounting options for the bicycles, as well, so the problem is not with the rack, it is with the design of our RV. I would highly recommend this rack.

    Purchased this bike rack to transport our two different types of bicycles. Last year I borrowed our son's $300 rack and damaged my bike when the two bikes got tangled on a bumpy road. This rack is solid and protective. Easy to asemble and mount the bikes. Only complaint - have to use a screwdriver to release the hold down clamp. This may be a good thing if it deters theft.

    I couldn't be happier with this rack! We purchased it prior to a 6500 mile cross country trip we took in our High Top Chevy Van last June, 2010. I've used the hanging style of racks in the past and with most all mountain bikes having a top bar that's NOT parallel to the ground, I was often concerned about bike tire clearances at various driveway entrances and on many back road situations. No concerns any more! Bikes are always riding very solidly/stabily and level with good ground clearance. We traveled all types of road conditions following major portions of Historic Route 66 on our way to the West coast and visiting many National Parks/Forests (and Wal-Mart parking lots!) all along the way. We even bought new bikes during the trip (donating the old ones to Goodwill) and, with all the simple adjustments this rack offers, it's always a 'piece of cake' to fit the rack quickly to any size bike you wish to carry along. The rack is quick to install, bolts on tightly, folds compactly to store and continues to be in regular use getting our bikes conveniently to/from regional cycling destinations when we're not on a road trip.

    I bought this rack to replace a ladder mount rack. The ladder mount allowed the bikes forks to rub against the frame and began to deform the ladder from the weight. I have used this rack on both the camper and the truck. It is rock solid! There is virtually no movement of the bike on the rack or the rack in the receiver. There is a threaded bolt that locks the rack in the receiver and keeps everything from moving. This is the best ever

    This rack mounted on my trailer bumper with no problems. Carries a pair of 30lb bikes with out concerns. Threaded locking to the receiver ensures that there is no movement of the rack on rougher roads. Easily switches to the truck when trailer is unhitched. Folds up and stores in minimal space. I swivel the handle bars on the bikes to make them easier to mount and not tangle with each other. For security I use cable locks to around bikes and bumper.

    This bike rack is exactly what we were looking for. The other reviewers comments regarding the attaching bolts and nuts did give me a little concern when ordering. However, upon receipt I found absolutely no issues with the bolts or nuts. It may be due to the fact that they are 16mm in size and I just happened to have both deep set sockets and wrenches that are metric, and the item installed without any issues at all. I would have rated the rack at a 5 except that I feel the shaft that slides into the hitch could use about 1/2 to 1 more length for added clearance past my trailer spare. Great product, simple to use and low to the ground which eliminates trying to lift the bicycles over your shoulders or head.
