Best Bike Rack for Sprinters?

I have seen Sprinter bike racks that use the trailer hitch receiver and are hinged so the bikes can be dropped down to open the rear doors. Who makes these and which ones work best?

Over that, I'd look at a rack that swings completely out of the way.

Rockymounts Backstage, for example. It also tilts, so does what you want as well.

Yakima SwingDaddy. Never leave home without it on the Sprinter. So easy when you need to access the rear doors. Doesn’t tilt, just swings the bikes out of the way.

We have a Reese drop down model that just barely allows the truck tailgate to lower, but everything, bikes and rack, is in the way to load and unload stuff without tripping over it. Then when you go to put it in the stowed position it's a royal pain by yourself, holding up three bikes and the rack while fumbling for the hitch pin....
I second the swing away model, that's really slick.

The back of an RV has lots of movement. Sprinter is probably not too bad but I'd still look at one that is specific to RVs. Swagman makes one and e-trailer sells them.
