Would be interested to know which one you pick
Please note: These racks are for heavy duty frame mounted receivers and NOT RV bumper mounts. There is also a good case to be made that they are not made to be used on light or ultra-light RV frame mounted receivers either.

Not sure what kind of trailer you have but if you have a dinette that lays flat you can mount them on your benches.

I just had a ladder installed by the dealer on my Puma and am looking at carrying bikes, all I can find are racks for 2 bikes. This thread is very informative. It sounds like the ladder can handle 2 bikes but not 4 due to the weight moving around, am I correct?

We carry our bikes on the inside of the RV. Wouldn't chance anything else on the paper thin bumper and wonder about the spare tire hanging off that bumper.

Herk, any knowledge about the V rack you posted. I have 11/2" of space on my equalizer hitch. Thinking about it.... My son's bike is muddy all the time, don't want in inside the trailer.

None, but if I remember right there was not much room behind the Equalizer hitch head and the truck's rear bumper.
