Is your swagman a platform type rack or hanging rack?
I have the 2" receiver welded on and use a hanging rack -- but my girls 20" cruisers can't hang, nor can you add the spring bar between the seat post and handle bar due to the geometry of these specific Electra kids cruisers. I would like to use the swagman 4 bike platform, but they say not for use on trailers. If you are successfully doing it I might have to go "off-label" and get one to try it out.
In time the kids bike will get bigger and the geometry will change to accept the spring bar--but I am not patient.
