You don't happen to have a picture you could share, do you?
I have the factory mounted bike rack on the back of my Sabre, but fitting 4 bikes is cumbersome at best. I always worry about putting marks on the camper from the handle bars, or worse yet a hole. We were rear ended last summer and the bike rack and bikes took most of the damage...just a small mark on the back wall of the camper was all that happened to my Sabre.
My thinking is moving one 20" bike to the ladder mounted rack gets some cushion space between those bikes on the factory mounted rack and the back of the fifth wheel and makes loading up all my bikes much easier.
Open to any thoughts...
