I'm looking for suggestions on the best and/or easiest rack to use on a 2" receiver hitch. I've seen a few but can't pull the "trigger" on any....looking for help with you guys on what you have.

Thanks...Ted

I can vouch for the Swagman 4 bike carrier. I have the XC4 and it works well for us.

I have the Swagman 3 bike carrier, and it works great. Easy to put on and take off, the model I have detaches from the base that stays on the vehicle and I can store the upper mount so I can get the dog in and out of the back of the Wrangler. Good quality product at a fair price.

I have the same basic RV and use the 4 bike version of the same bike carrier.

On the 4 bike Swagman you have to watch out for the diameter of the bike frames putting the largest on first and the smallest on last. Some pool noodles over the bike frames where they rub together and a few decent bungees to keep them from knocking about helps also.

Mixing the ladies and mens frames on the rack can be a challange at times. Once I found the best combination I took a photo to refresh my memmory so I can repeat the performance.

All in all I do like the value and security of the rack and do recommend it.

Thanks guys for the response, Swagman it is, I'm off to order one this morning. I ordered the Blue Ox, but it had the tall frame, which would have put me on a ladder to load the bikes, didn't look like fun...so the Swagman looks to be the answer.

Thanks for all the input! Ted
