Arvika bike rack with Equal-i-zer hitch

Can an Arvika bike rack be used with an Equal-I-zer hitch? I have a 2012 Tahoe pulling a travel trailer and need somewhere to mount a couple of bikes. The Arvika looks like a great solution, but I've heard somewhere that it can't be used with an Equal-I-zer.

You should be able to use it with a bike bunk attachment to bring it over your propane tanks. I used a Stromberg Carlson Bike Bunk Trailer-Mounted Bike Rack Carrier for A-Frame Trailers with a Let's Go Aero VeeMe V2 2-Bike Rack. And love it. My bikes hardly move and I positioned the bike bunk as far back as I could to miss the brackets for the sway bars and junction box for my electrical. here are some pictures. hope this helps

I don't see why the Arvika would pose a problem (you can mount it pretty far back), but to know for sure, next time you make a sharp turn with the Equal-I-Zer mounted, take a photo of how far back the WD bar slides.
