Q: Do I need a license plate relocation kit?

Q: Do I need a hitch extension to use a bike rack?

A: If you are running a spare tire, yes, you will most likely need a hitch extension.

We highly recommend the adjustable anti-wobble hitch extension we designed called the WobNot.

The exceptions are typically Sprinter or Transit vans running 31" tires using a Mega-Fit, these sometimes do not require an extension.

A: There are several existing options available for backup camera relocation. Here's a link to our offerings. Call or email us to help you decide what option makes sense for you.

 

Q: Will the UltraSwing block my vehicle's parking sensors?

A: Yes. Although we have options for relocating the backup camera on many vehicles, we don't have relocation options available for parking sensors. In most cases we recommend disabling them.

A: View all accessories here.

Check out the Camp Table Bundle, SideHack Bundle, and Rotopax Bundle. Other accessories include the SKEP™ (skid and step), TrailStraps™ MAXTRAX mount, and WobNot hitch extension.

 

Q: Can I mount two Rotopax to the UltraSwing?

A: Yes, but you'll need to use the Rotopax Universal Mounting Plate, and drill holes to match our UltraSwing Rotopax Mount Bracket to mount two 2-Gallon Rotopax. To mount a single Rotopax just use our UltraSwing Rotopax Mount.

Q: Will the UltraSwing affect my departure angle?

UltraSwing Departure Angle

A: There is a slight decrease in departure angle compared to just a standard hitch receiver. When hitting an obstacle straight on the UltraSwing is 4” further out to. Approaching an obstacle from an angle, the UltraSwing is higher than the bumper on many vehicle applications.

 

Q: Why is the UltraSwing's tire mount angled?

A: The UltraSwing uses an angled tire design because it centers the load of the tire over the UltraSwing resulting in increased performance of the UltraSwing in off-road or bumpy highway situations.
