yes you can make it work. It wont be exactly like an adult bike in the standard position. The span between the cradle arms is 15". They have tie-downs so if you put the bike lopsided it can be secured.

I put this on the back of a Chevy Avalanche. The GMC Sierra is basically the same vehicle.

The biggest concern would be the size of your trailer hitch. If the Sierra is like my Avalanche, your hitch should be 2". Just use the shims and the proper lock bolt.

answer 1
I normally carry only 1 bike on a Chevy HHR. My trick is to bungee-chord the wheels and pedals from movement. The bike would have to come unattached to scratch the car (hasn't happened yet). The rack extends rearward from the receiver approximately 6 inches.
answered 2 years, 10 months ago

answer 2
Yes if you have a hitch receiver. O your car it would be 1 1/4. the only thing that will scratch the car is pedals. You can remove the one nearest the car during transport.

answer 3
If there is a supported sized hitch (1-1/4 or 2") you should be fine.

There is about 4" between the rack and the tailgate on my truck. The handlebars of my bike do not hit the tailgate.

If you have a 1 1/4" receiver it will fit and the bikes won't touch the car. I run a bungee cord from the front to back tire on the bike closest to the car which keeps the front wheel straight.

Yes it will mount, and if you do not secure the bikes with an extra cord, they can scratch the car, however if properly tied down, this is an excellent choice.

Should not be a problem at all. Except for the hitch, nothing touches your car and bike does not move enough to swing back to hit your car.

It's made to plug into a 2 or 1 1/4 inch hitch. Some 5th wheels have a hitch on the rear bumper. If your bumper has the hitch it will work.

I can't see why it couldn't be used on an RV. I use a bike rack that hangs from my ladder on the back of the RV and this rack would be safer in my opinion. You would, of course have to bolt a receiver to your RV bumper.

I have a Chevy S-10 with a 2" hitch. The 2" w/the provided adapter works well & allows you to pull a utility trailer (w/o the bike rack attached). I don't know of a rack w/o some "adjusting." That adjusting is how you insure the load (Bicycle) is secure. If it falls off, YOU are legally responsible for damage to others. Ride safe!!

I have it on a 2" hitch receiver, which is a Class 3 hitch for my SUV. A Class 1 or 2 hitch which would have the smaller receiver. Call UHAUL. I had my hitch installed there for $250 (hitch and installation included). This rack comes with a "sleeve" to make it fit the 2", but fits the smaller without the sleeve. We're very happy with it.
