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.

Important: Installation requires 1-1/2 inches of clean space between hitch and the ball platform. If you don't have a ball mount, a receiver mount is available to install the rack on a 2-inch hitch. To use the V-Rack with a 1-1/4-inch hitch receiver, a converter/riser mount also is available.

This bike carrier is not suitable for carrying Ebikes

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.
