Hitch bike rack for AS Interstate RV
I've previously posted asking for recommendations for bike rack for AS Interstate EXT (24.5ft) on the Interstate forum. Wondered if this thread might get more results. See photo.
Many bike racks say they aren't approved for motor homes (because of increased stress due to distance from axle to hitch). So that leaves me extremely limited. Due to cruiser bikes and step through design, we are also limited to the wheel supported style rather than the hanging style. And due to the vertical split rear opening doors, we need one that swings or tips out of the way-- different than all the SUV hatch opening videos that are available. And limited due to wanting it to swing away or tip allowing access to rear doors (not hatch back style)..
Do you any of you think the distance on a Mercedes Sprinter van is what they are referring to when they warn of using an RV approved hitch-mounted bike rack.
Any suggested models or hitch modifications?
