Bicycle racks

Looking for the pros/cons on bicycle racks for transporting bicycles with our 2017 Sunseeker 2290s.
1) hitch receiver rack that will hold 3 bikes or
2) a rack to utilize the RV's ladder
The 2290s has rear storage but 3 bikes taking up the cargo space is not what I want. I have concerns with the weight of the bikes on the ladder if I was the go that direction. And given a choice I would like to be able to put some type of cover around the bikes.

Appreciate any input-thanks!

Swagman XC2

We just took a trip with our Swagman XC2 (no toad) with 2 bikes. I called Swagman and asked which one they recommended for back of rv. This was it. I think the Traveller XC2 is for use with toad. They stayed secure the whole time.

Bicycle racks

Amazing how fast the body adjusts to these seats. I bought the padded shorts. Now almost never wear them. 18 miles on the last ride.
