2 or 4 Bike Rack Designed for RV Use on Tiffin Allegro 36LA

Question:

Would the Thule T2 Pro XTR work on my motorhome. If not, please explain and let me know what a comparable carrier would be. I understand this could grow to hold up to 4 bikes, so i would be interested to hear carriers that could do the same. I am trying to get a carrier that works on my Jeep Wrangler as well as the Tiffin.

At the rear of a trailer or RV the ride quality is very rough when compared to the ride quality at the rear of a passenger vehicle. Reason being the suspension isn't as sophisticated and there is a longer distance between the rear axle and the rear of the trailer which exaggerates the movement of the trailer when hitting bumps. Because of that only a few bike racks were designed to be reinforced enough for that type of use. The Thule racks are not rated for RV use.

The best option for a 4 bike RV rack that would also clear the rear spare of a Jeep Wrangler would be the Yakima LongHaul RV Bike Rack - 4 Bikes - 2" Hitches - Silver, Item # Y02476. Check out its video to see all of its great qualities.
