Bike rack in place of spare tire.

I have a Forest River hardside Aframe. Model A122s I was thinking of placing the spare tire in the tow vehicle and fabricating a bike rack to carry one bike in place of the spare tire. My question is would this be safe could it damage the unit? Thanks

I wouldn't do it. Figure out how to put it on the roof some way. The bumpers are too flimsy for a bike flopping around.

Not safe, do not do it!
If you have warranty yet adding bike rack will void it!
