I was behind a fifth wheel that had a bike rack mounted with a couple of bikes in it and every time they hit a bump the bikes had to bounce 8-10 inches. With as much flex as the bike rack had and the amount of bouncing that was going on back there it does not surprise me that it may cause frame damage.

Lots of discussion about this issue here on the forum. I ended up installing a receiver hitch on the front of my F250 and used a platform to carry the bikes.
