Installation and modification
CAN THE BIKE RACK BE INSTALLED BEHIND THE TRAILER?
We do not recommend installing it behind the trailer, as this is neither stable nor safe. To ensure greater stability and avoid breakage, we strongly recommend installing the bike rack at the front of your trailer.
WHICH BIKE RACK CAN BE INSTALLED ON BOTH A CARAVAN AND A CAR?
You can install the same Arvika bike rack on your car's hitch as well as on your trailer. We sell a wide selection of mounting brackets to meet all your installation needs. The Arvika 7000 series bike mount is compatible with all our adapters.
I HAVE REGULAR BIKES, BUT I PLAN TO BUY ELECTRIC BIKES IN THE FUTURE. SHOULD I BUY THE EBIKES RACK NOW?
No! What differentiates our regular rack from the e-bike rack is the weight capacity. You'll simply need to buy an additional support arm to increase the maximum weight from 150 to 200 lbs.

WHAT MAKE AND MODEL OF TRAILER IS COMPATIBLE WITH THE ARVIKA RACK?
The standard 7000 series is compatible with a wide variety of trailers such as Forest River, Grand River, Coleman, and others. Please contact one of our representatives to validate compatibility with other models. Either at firstname.lastname@example.org or call us at +1 888-690-0096.
HOW MUCH DOES THE BIKE RACK WEIGH?
The rack will vary in weight depending on the components it includes. Maximum weight is 55 lbs.
Parts and accessories
CAN I BUY THE SAFARI CONDO ADAPTER?
Safari Condo makes its own adapter; we cannot sell it. We advise you to contact them directly.
I HAVE AN OLD ARVIKA BIKE RACK AND NEED REPLACEMENT PARTS. CAN I ORDER NEW PARTS ON THE WEBSITE?
Yes, you can find all spare parts on our parts page. Some parts have been improved over the years, but the new parts are all compatible with the rack base.
