Bicycle rack cover

I'm setting up my Winnebago so that I can have my two bicycles attached using the trailer hitch receiver. I've purchased a rack that carries two bikes, but since they'll be subjected to rain, dirt, etc. while traveling and camping, does anyone know of a GOOD cover that will keep them clean/dry and not fly off onto the windshield of the unsuspecting vehicle behind me?? I've checked both Amazon and Ebay and the choices are extremely limited. I'm hoping a fellow RV'er might have a suggestion for this one.

We've carried a pair of recumbent bikes on the back of our rig. We bought a couple of small car covers and my wife used the material to make covers for the bikes. Covers do a good job. However, I haven't been happy with the amount of bounce that goes on back there and haven't carried the bikes that way for awhile. Even on an MH, you need to get a very substantial rack to stand the stresses of travel. There was another thread recently where someone wrote that the rack broke off at the receiver and their bikes were lost. Though the original question was about ladder racks, the reading is interesting.

Yeah, I remember glancing over it but didn't read it in full. I'll try to find it for more information. Your idea of the small car cover might be the perfect solution. My better half has already volunteered to pull out the sewing machine so we may be onto something! Thanks!!

I had a bike rack on the back of the TT and we used a large grill cover, some bungees and a strap and it worked great. Cheap too.

I received a double bike cover from my MIL. I've tried it on two mountain bikes and two cruiser bikes and it fits neither. My point is, if you decide to purchase one either make sure it fits or the store has a good return policy.
