Jump Into Spring with the Swagman Sale!

With the winter finally falling away behind us, it's time to get ready for spring and summer. How do you spend your summers? Here in Calgary, it's often said that we spend more of our free time leaving the city for the wilderness than anything else. It's incredibly easy with the vast Rocky Mountains a mere hour away, and such a wide variety of beautiful landscapes to traverse.

Let Auto Truck Depot help you explore wherever you may go, whether it's in a city park or out in the country, by hooking you up with a high quality Swagman Rack for a great price. For a limited time only, we are offering 15% off all Swagman products, so you can get your vehicle outfitted for your next summer adventure!

Watercraft Racks

Swagman doesn't just make bike racks. If you're looking to head out to the lake or river, check out the Folding Contour Roof Mount Kayak Carrier. Designed to accommodate most standard racks, it even comes with additional 10mm bolts for over-sized crossbars. It can hold 1 kayak, and comes with 2 tie down straps, bow and stern straps, and padded cam buckles. When you're not hauling a kayak, the racks even fold down to reduce wind resistance.

If you're looking for something a little bit larger, we've got several other kayak racks, like the Contour Roof Mount Kayak Holder, and the Coronado Roof Mount Kayak Holder.

Swagman Roamer LT Pop-Up Trailer Rack

Heading out camping with your pop-up tent trailer? Don't have a truck, or just need some extra storage space? Swagman makes a rack designed to mount to the top of your trailer to give you that extra storage boost. They can also be installed on truck canopies on tonneau covers and truck canopies!

A tonneau cover can turn the truck bed of your pickup truck into a safe and secure place to store your extra cargo.

There are various styles, such as Roll-Up, Tri-Fold, Retractable and Hard tonneau covers, so you can be sure to find one suited to your lifestyle and specific requirements.

2. Cargo Box

3. Roof Rack

Overview: Swagman Bike Racks

Travelling with bikes is challenging. They are awkward, they take up a lot of space, and even if you have an empty truck box to carry them in, damages to your bike or truck bed are likely to occur. Luckily for avid bike enthusiasts who refuse to travel without the accompaniment of their bikes, companies like Swagman make outstanding products to solve these issues.

The SEMI 2.0 fits most bike frame shapes and sizes, and with its unique patented design, there is zero contact to the bike frame. The SEMI 2.0 fits any 1-1/4” or 2” hitch receiver to carry up to two bikes on the back of your vehicle with ratcheting arms that only grab the bike’s wheels.

Products such as these ensure that you can safely carry your bikes with any vehicle, and without losing space. And if that’s not enough, the rack tilts down to allow access to the rear of the vehicle, even while bikes are loaded.

If a two bike carrier is not enough, Swagman has many other products to satisfy your needs, such as the QUAD 2+2, which can carry up to four bikes and has a similar design as the SEMI 2.0. There are also products, such as the Ladder Rack – 2 BikeRV Ladder Rack that is designed to utilize the ladder on the back of your RV for carrying up to two bikes. No matter what type of vehicle you have, or how many bikes you want to carry, Swagman has products to utilize your vehicles space while ensuring your bikes remain secure when you travel.
