Here is a picture of a bike rack that fits around the drawbar of your hitch. Not the best picture, but we bought one similar to this at CW 5 or 6 years ago. Then you can carry the bikes on the back of the tow vehicle. No extensions or anything to worry about, it just has a "sleeve" that slips onto the drawbar and a set screw to hold it. Then the rest of the bike rack is removable when not in use.
It says in fits all standard 2" drawbars, but I found that it is not totally true. Apparently the hole location on all receiver hitches isn't exactly the same because this worked fine on my Explorer, then moved the drawbar with rack mount on it to the F-150 and couldn't get the holes in the hitch and drawbar to line up to put the pin in. Then bought the new TT and the new WDH, and now the "sleeve" for the bike rack mount on the new drawbar I can get the pin through the hitch/drawbar.
So not a sure thing it will fit, and you have to be mindful of the tongue weight you are adding, but this makes for a good way to carry bikes. We haven't had any clearance issues between the bikes and trailer, and easy to load/unload.
