Heininger's Advantage V-Rack bike rack is the ultimate in space savings and convenience. It's unique V-shape enables folding into an easy-to-store size when not in use while still providing structural integrity to handle up to two bikes confidently.

Since the V-shape straddles your hitch receiver channel instead of inserting into it, you can still connect your trailer or whatever to the receiver hitch.

Your V-Rack comes complete with a locking cable to secure your bikes and a storage bag to protect your bike rack when not in use.

The V-Rack 2-Bike Carrier provides stability for transporting bikes while allowing for compact storage. The locking V-Design and square steel tubing provide exceptional strength. With the V-Rack on your vehicle you can still tow a boat, trailer or RV. The V-Rack simply clamps around the stinger insert in your receiver. It comes fully assembled and can be mounted in a matter of minutes.

Disclaimer: Do NOT install any hitch mounted bicycle or cargo carrier on a trailer or other towed vehicle. Apply caution to mounting a carrier on some motorhomes with a long distance between the rear axle and the tail-end of the coach. Bike and cargo carriers will increase the overall length of the vehicle. Use greater caution when backing up.

    This rack is so easy to use and it works well while pulling my pop-up camper. It is extremely easy to mount and the bikes are more secure than on my in-hitch-receiver rack. Also, the bikes sit just a bit farther from the back of the vehicle, so less bumping against the vehicle. We have had this for several months and use it fairly often. We are very pleased with this purchase.

    Would be better for smaller bikes

    The rubber mounts for the bike frame were not designed for bikes like mine, with a heavy frame. So the bike doesn't seat all the way into them. The straps hold firmly, almost too firmly because getting them on an off is much harder than my previous carrier. It also is not suitable to using your bike lock to secure it to the carrier. Instead you have to use a cable lock. So it works, but I will get something different when it is time to replace it.

    A good idea, but unable to put the second bike on ( had to put in the camper). Bike was too close to jack and would not allow operation of jack to hook up on TV. Even if you placed bike on rack after hookup, jack was between frame and tire of bike and would have had disasterous consequences. Was able to use after getting trailer to site and carry bikes to other local destinations. It all depends on how far your jack is from the front of the coupler.

    This bike rack is extremely easy to mount on your hitch. Compact, noting to assemble, and brings it's own carrier bag. This was a great buy for me. Would recommend to anyone.

    Between this and the CURT one, this thing felt like it was made by somebody who cared for my well being. it operated smoothly and felt secure.I ended up returning mine because my bike hung way too low and my wife's bike - even with frame adapter - couldn’t fit well enough to make me happy.The niche this fills is great - the locking mechanism feels very secure and smooth - i just wish it came up another foot or two!
