What and where did you find the bike rack that will clear the slideout with a drop-down hitch? Is it working well?

I picked up a Thule Apex at a local bike shop. Here's a link to the Thule site.

I should add that it works very well. No need to remove the bikes, just release the lever and lower the bikes to about 45 degrees from horizontal. I first tried a swing-away rack, but it did not swing far enough out of the way to clear the slide.

I've been looking for a rack on the back of our Vista 26. It seems that all bike racks are not designed to be used on the back of a motor home. Swagman has one of two. Many of vendors I contacted did no recommend their product for use on the back of a motor home. The problem seemed to be that large amount of motion from bumps etc put a strain on the mount. Check with the vendor before purchasing.

I used a drop down hitch to clear the slide out. The rack I have is for a tandem bike so that would not help you. The drop hitch is Blue OX 8 inch,BX88131

This gave me about a 2 inch clearance from the slide.
