We have a Swagman and it is the one NOT recommended for trailers, as there is a reducer that allows it to be used on a small or large hitch. I've only carried one bike on it without problems.
The one that has the larger bar going all the way back to the bike supports is trailer rated supposedly.
Get a real hardened chain and lock. I had a cable lock and last week in Mesa, my bike became someone elses. Cut the cable clean like butter.
