Expert Reply:

The standard hitch bike rack is not designed to handle the extreme forces that will be put on it if it is mounted to the back of a travel trailer or 5th wheel. The rear of the trailer is extended far away from the axels and this will cause a lot of up and down motion that can cause a hitch bike rack to snap or bend. If it is a swivel rack the moving parts could fail as well.

We do have the Swagman Trailhead 4-Bike Rack for 2" Hitches - Fixed Base # S63381 that is designed to be used on motorhomes, travel trailers, 5th wheels and flat-towed vehicles.
