EBike Carriers

Hi Folks- We are trying to decide on best way to carry our eBikes. I see that some folks fold them and put on a cargo carrier on rear of camper and that may be the way for us to go, along with a hitch stabilizer. But we went back to looking at Swagman and Yakima carriers on eTrailer's site. They now are very model-specific. Ours is a Cougar 1/2 ton 24RDS. On etrailer site both Swagman and Yakima are specific to a 25RDS. Any thoughts on why 24RDS is not included? Thanks for your thoughts and experiences. Happy Turkey too!

This is what I purchased..so far it’s pretty good for my heavy cruiser bikes
I had a very hard time finding any fifth wheel approved ebike carriers in the last year that were actually available…..all were back ordered with no estimated arrival

As far as why yours wasn’t included, they have to be fifth wheel approved as fifth wheels have dynamic forces in play that affect the bike carrier …the 25 rds is a Travel trailer not a fifth wheel

Ahhh! Thanks for that distinction between 24 and 25. Bummer for us! Appreciate your input.
