Side-ways Swing away Bike racks for around $200

Well, I've been using a harbor freight special for hauling my bikes behind the camper for the last couple of trips and while it's worked, the straight drop down position of the bikes always required a second body to get them back up and pinned back into place and after the Eastern Oregon Ramblin' journey and a couple of other trips, the little rubber mounts have pretty much had it.

So, now, I'm looking for a new 2-3 bike replacement rack that instead of tipping down, swings out to the side and will work behind a Truck Camper.

Any Suggestions?

For the record, whatever bike rack that gets used is already set back roughly 12" or so behind the camper because I have a 48" long extension.

Well, I solved this problem already

I ended up ordering a Surco OSI DBR-300

DBR-300 Swing Reciever

From amazon.com for $225 with free shipping and I found a Truck Camper Owner review by Mark W. Ingalls on the very product .

The cats meow in bike racks turns out to be a parallelgram style, NOT the swing style. Far, far easier to load/unload, mount/dismount, and to access tailgate. By Softride, Inc. || hitch mounted bike racks, hitch mounted ski & snowboard carrier for 1.25 and 2 receiver hitches

Here's a couple pictures of the bike rack I originally had (click to see full-size).



As you may or may not be able to see, the bike's in the tipped down position were still in the way of me being able to step directly up onto the step on the hitch and into my camper.

Hence why I'm after the swing away variety, I can push the bikes to the side and be able to get in and out without problem.
