Very few bike racks are RV-approved. In fact, most have a disclaimer for use on a RV.
Swagman is one of the few.

How do you expect to connect it to the TT?

After reading a lot of advice here, we opted for purchasing stand up bike racks and strapping them down inside the camper while traveling. We had to mount some loops inside to tie them down, but it gives us somewhere to keep the bikes after we set up camp.

Question still seeking...

still having trouble trying to locate a bumper trailer hitch to use with my camper travel trailer (Shasta Oasis 18BH). I plan to carry 4 adult size bikes, I guess weighing approx 25-50lbs each totaling approx 200 lbs for bikes and 50 lbs for bicycle rack.

Anyone have a suggestion for types of hitches i can use with my trailer?

Thanks in advance.

Miguel

which bike rack to us should be the least of your concerns. Safley and properly connecting it to your rv is the big question. Most rv bumpers are not rated for ad on hitches.

Four bikes on the back bumper of a camping trailer?

Not a good idea...

Unless you have a 2" receiver welded and braced to the frame, the physics of a loaded receiver bolted to the bumper will cause the bumper welds to fail.
And such a mod may void the frame warranty if something happens.

You are not going to find a hitch for a sewer bumber for 4 bikes. The 4 sewer bumbers will not support that load. Depending on your frame you might consider a frame mounted hitch welded or bolted on.
