Measurement Question - Solera 24S/Sunseeker 2400S/Forester 2401S

Figured I'd post this here since the Solera sub-forum has the most activity relative to the MBS chassis.

Curious if anyone with an "S" floor plan can measure the distance between the edge of the roof ladder and the hitch receiver.

I want to confirm that my bike rack (Kuat NV + Extension) will clear the roof ladder when stowed in the vertical position.

Thank you!

Thanks for the info. I have 9" from the hole to the up bar, but I also have a tray style bike rack so I'm curious about the distance left/right between the receiver and edge of the ladder since at 9" I doubt this is going to stack against the ladder in terms of depth, so I hope it clears left to right.

I think no problem
As I recall, there is a lot of room between the back of rv and up bar.
It's 2 1/2 inches from hole to end of receptacle which is close to bumper end and ladder is not 6 inches beyond the bumper
