I hope the cover works as well for you! We were concerned about the Wrangler tail lights also, most of our driving was daytime, but did a few hours before daylight and after dark. I think the coach is much wider than the Wrangler and the coach rear lights were always visible.

If it hides the taillights on the RV, I will have a decision to make. The bikes will either go uncovered, or stay at home, and I'll have to look into smaller or folding bikes. We like our stretched bikes but in this case they can be a problem.

This from walmart and 15 minutes to mount them is cheap safety !

I bought a set for my hitch-a-haul carrier just in case I ever load it up with something that covers the tail lights...

My 2 cents.

Used to race bikes. Lot's of miles traveling for training and racing over the years. Hauled very expensive bikes around, and used a similar bike rack for quite a while.

Regarding the cover for the bikes. We have tried, and quit using during travel. Wind making it flap can cause issues, and if it's raining then dirt, water & grime seem to find a way to get all over the bikes anyway. There is nothing better than a little soap & water for the bike after a dusty or wet drive. Just don't use a power sprayer.

A good lube on the chain, frequently if you're riding on the trails, will save you a lot of heartache. Read a lot of studies on the different lubes over the past 25 years. I settled on Rock-N-Roll lube (Rock"N"Roll Lubrication - Homepage) because it actually does have some cleaning characteristics also. It lasts quite well and you won't have any rust issues.

the goatheads are ferocious tube eaters.....My first outing in Benson, riding only on city streets resulted in 2 flat tires...due to goat heads. In 2006 there was a small bicycle shop on the main drag, he recommended removing the tubes, and replacing them with a foam rubber insert, and removing the valve stem. Still riding the same bike, no flats ever....I won't sell the bike 'cause I can no longer find the foam rubber inserts for a new bike.
