Is There A Swing Away Adapter That Allows A Bike Rack To Clear The Rear Slide On Motorhome?

Question:

I have a Thor Delano 24 Motor home with rear slide. Do they make a swing arm that would work with one of the racks. We have two Mountain bikes. I would like to swing the rack out to extend the rear slide. Thank you

I have a swing away bike rack that will work for you, but there are not any individual swing away adapters compatible with motorhomes. Your best option is the Thule Apex Swing XT Bike Rack for 4 Bikes - 2" Hitches - Swinging # TH9027XT. This holds up to 4 bikes and is approved for motorhome use. The carrier swings away from the receiver to the passenger side, allowing for access to the trunk on most vehicles.

I will mention that we have not tested this on a motorhome with a rear slide, so I cannot 100% confirm that it will allow you to open your slide all the way. I attached a photo and demonstration video to help assist you and provide more insight.
