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 48 lbs each. Kayaks not over 10 1/2' long are also recommended. With the bike rack option added and two 25 lb bikes = 180lbs of cargo (recommended) plus 108 lbs for rack weight = 254 lbs total so you do not overload the hitch swing out mechanism you choose. We do offer and recommend a drop down wheel option ( 15lbs) on the accessory page as shown in video if you want to have added security when opening your rack. (this is an option however we recommend it so you do not stress your swing arm.) RVKR development LLC is not responsible for third party equipment failures for any reason.
*This rack order does not include the swing out mechanism or our optional drop down wheel. (your discretion)*
You will need to add the drop down wheel option located on our accessory page if you use this with a swing out mechanism. Photos displayed show 9' - 10' 4" long kayaks. The drop down wheel is recommended and simply pivots down to pavement and provides additional support to the rack weight when you open a swing arm. Due to Swing arm manufacturers varying loads & construction we cannot recommend a particular swing arm unit. The video has a Hitch swing tm arm on the RV. Thule Access swing arms are higher rated at (350 lbs)
Two bikes about 25 lbs each can be carried with the optional bike rack added to the rack. There are swing out arm attachment options commercially available. If either bike has rear fenders you need to add Rear Fender protector blocks to your order on accessory page.
