It fits both 1-1/4" x 1-1/4" (Class I and II) and 2" x 2" trailer hitches.

eTrailer web page provides a lot of good pictures of the bike rack including a close up of the part that goes into the receiver. From this picture you can see how it's adjusted to fit 1-1/4" x 1-1/4" and 2" x 2" trailer hitches.
I'm thinking that with our 5th wheel being only 23.5' might work in it's favor as well with less bounce in the rear end.

1 1/4" hitches are not the best for hitch accessories. My wife had an Escape with an 1 1/4' hitch and we bought a hitch-mounted bike carrier for it. They were very unstable and moved around a lot. It started wearing on the hitch and carrier as well. Just doesn't have enough UMF to do the job. I guess it would work better if you use straps or tie downs from the front and back tires of the bikes to the vehicle.

Stop the movement

I have found that all hitch accessories bounce and create stress on the receiver. I have installed this Click image for larger version

Are the original owner? If not, are you certain it wasn't someone like me who had it fabricated and added?
How true that is. I'm still trying to locate the 85 gallon water heater that Jayco says mine is equipped with.
