I use a 3 bike rack on my hitch. It is a double receiver hitch so I can also tow.

You don't say what you have in the way of an RV. Options vary.

At the moment we don't have anything. We are looking at a fifth wheel bunk house. But trying to get everything lined up. I have figred out the wheel chair issue if we don't go toy hauler route was just trying to figure out bicycles.

You are right, silly question with the amount of information you give us. Most people put a bike rack on the back of the coach and use the trailer hitch with a rack that goes into it. Of course not knowing what you even have for an RV leaves this up for discussion. Can't see needing a toy hauler to carry around a few bikes as necessary.

Swagman has just about everything you would need for whatever you are going to get that will carry 4 bikes.

Thule makes a good rack with a add on for more bikes. I have a 2 bike rack and have talked with folks who use the 4 bike rack and we all are happy. Easy loading and un loading. Trailer hitch receiver mounted.

We've known some who carry expensive bikes and don't wish to put them outside. Unless you have a total surround cover they will get very dirty.

Their solution was to pack them last and lay them inside on the floor with a piece of foam between them.

We tried carrying bikes but found we didn't use them much and they became a hassle.

Hitch mounted racks can carry 4, I prefer a quality brand vs the cheaper ones. Thule, Yakima etc just work better but cost more.

Depending on what you buy, you can do a hit mount for behind the RV, trailer etc

I do not like having my bike outside on long hauls due to being a expensive bike (at least to me it is) so I made a mount for inside the jeep which carries two bikes. Gave me more room on the hitch rack for the other 3 bikes.

I have a hitch on my toad, and have the rack for the bikes there. I found that is best for me because I park the RV, then drive somewhere with the toad, I have the bikes to ride...

HAVE seen in the SW a carrier that attacks to the 5th wheel hitch and rides in front of the 5vr and above the truck bed. Don't know the brand.
