This rack includes the bike rack and can be used with or without the Hitch receiver swing out arm (not supplied) Here is a link to the company that manufactures the Hitch Swing and sells it if you need it. https://www.wilcooffroad.com/?s=hitch+swing This is commonly used with Van style RV's with rear doors or truck campers that need to open rear doors. The model KR2B56 rack model shown carries kayaks or surfboards that are a maximum of 32" wide & less than 60 lbs each. With the bike rack option added and two 35 lb bikes = 190lbs of cargo (recommended) plus 108 lbs for rack weight = 258 lbs total so you do not overload the hitch swing out mechanism you choose. We do offer a drop down wheel option on the accessory page as shown in video if you want to add it if you are using heavier items. (your option however we recommend it so you do not stress your swing arm.)

This does not include the swing out mechanism or our optional drop down wheel. (your discretion) The Hitch Swing tm is manufactured by Wilco offroad and is available online. You may need to add the drop down wheel option located on our accessory page if you need this as a swing out unit. The drop down wheel is recommended and simply pivots down to pavement and provides additional support to the rack weight when you open the swing arm.
Two bikes about 25 lbs each can be carried with the optional bike rack added to the rack. There are Receiver swing out arm attachment options commercially available.
