Bike rack suggestions

We have a 2001 Winnebago Journey and are traveling across the USA this summer. We have two electric bikes, one with fat tires. I'm looking for suggestions for a bike rack/carrier that will fit our needs. Thank you

Swagman racks

Swagman makes several racks that are RV rated and will handle ebikes. I haven't used one but know people who have and recommend them.
Current problem (like so many items) is availability.

We have a Thule Easyfold XT 2 that has a ramp for easy loading but we almost bought a Hollywood rack that holds up to 80lbs per bike and easily handles a wide tire.

Bought one to carry 2 fat tire e-bikes. Not cheap, about $500, not light, about 80lbs, but solid, well built. Had it for 2+ years now. Highly recommend.

We have a Hollywood rack for our two Rad City step thru bikes. It is actually the rack recommended by Rad City
Excellent quality, secure, has built in locking systems and performs well
