The Swagman Escapee is a RV approved hitch mounted two bike rack designed for use on a 2 inch hitch receiver only. The Escapee is the first RV approved bike rack that provides zero frame contact which is ideal for anyone with carbon bikes or who would just like to avoid frame contact on their bikes in general.
Zero Frame Contact
The Escapee works by clamping directly onto the front tire of the bike just in front of the fork. The rear tire of your bike is then secured onto the rack using a ratcheting wheel strap.
The Escapee includes a locking threaded hitch pin that gives you the ability to secure the rack itself onto the hitch of your vehicle or RV along with locks in each of the ratcheting arms to secure your bike onto the rack.
The Escapee was built with a full 2 inch receiver and without the folding feature that is on most other Swagman bike racks these are both important changes in order to make sure the rack has the appropriate strength required to be mounted onto the back of an RV. The reason these modifications exist is due to the fact that there is significantly more whip action on the back of RV in comparison to most other passenger vehicles.
Can be mounted on the bumper of an RV
If you do not have a hitch on the back of your RV you can purchase the Swagman 64025 RV Bumper Adapter
