I have been using a ladder bike rack for the past 16 years, on two different motorhomes, and never had a problem, however they are light weight bikes. I use compression straps to secure them high (the ladders strongest point) and very tight to the ladder, they should not be able to move.
Make sure you have a professional look at the backing points that your ladder is screwed too, you Donít want that ladder coming off its mounts while you are half way up it!!
