The Thule Helium Aluminum 2 Bike Carrier for 1-1/4 inch and 2 inch Hitches - Tilting - Hitch Mount, item # TH9042PRO, is not designed for use behind motorhomes and RV trailers. The extra distance from the axle to the rear of the motorhome causes extra forces to be applied at the hitch and can cause the bike rack to fail.

We do have several bike racks that are rated for use behind motorhomes and RV trailers. A link to these carriers is provided for you to review. I would recommend the Swagman XTC-2, Two Bike Carrier, item # S64670. This rack is rated for use behind your Roadtrek and will fit as long as the distance from the hitch pin hole to the farthest out part of your spare tire is less than 9 inches.

If the distance from the hitch pin hole to the farthest out part of your spare tire is more than 9 inches on your RV you may be able to use the Swagman Original 3 Bike Rack for 2 inch Hitch, item # S64152-2, which provides 14 inches of clearance in the farthest hitch pin hole.
