Thule T2 Pro Bike Rack
You can get the extension to hold 4 bikes.
A little spendy, but we like it a lot more than the hanging rack we used to use. Thule makes a cheaper version (Thule T2 Classic
) that would be fine on an RV. It is a little more work to fold up than the T2 Pro, but that is more of an issue for the SUV.
Here's the cut-n-past from page two of the above Thule owners manual:
- DO NOT INSTALL on a trailer or
other towed vehicle.
This is the big issue in looking for bike racks. Almost all mfg.'s do not rate their racks for RV use! Swagman does, but only for two of their many models. It seems to be the long distance from the trailer/fifth rear axle. All the ups/downs and poundings are hugely magnified compared to a car, and the mfg's just can't warrant that their racks will stand up to the stresses. Always download the manual for the brand/model you are looking at, before buying, to see if it too has a warning or disclaimer about RV use.
