Bike rack for TOAD/Jeep Wrangler

Need suggestions/feedback for hitch mounted bike rack that clears spare tire.

I tow a Jeep Wrangler behind my ACE 29.3 and looking to carry 2 bikes. I'm looking for a hitch mount bike rack.

Some racks say not for trailers/rv's. Is there an issue on the back of a TOAD?

I have the following 2 bike carrier that I attach to my ACE 30.1 and or the back of my Jeep Wrangler. I'm not sure why they state not for RV use because it is well built and has carried my bikes through some of the worst conditions. Velcro straps provide extra security attaching the bike tires to the base of the carrier and tow padded tension hooks hold the bike at the frame. Ill received it as a gift about 4 years ago and cant recall the brand, will pull the make tomorrow.

Thanks! I actually just bought that one but with the locks on the hooks (SR2901LR). Will be testing out next week.

Cargo Carrier - Stromberg Carlson CC-100 - Cargo Carriers - Camping World

I bought that cargo carrier and the add on bike holders. I wanted to be more flexible with it and can carry a lot of stuff on it. The carrier works great but I have not yet used the bike add ons.

Bike Rack

I see you bought a rack... Just thought I would add that I found my Yakima Doubledown rack fit on the back on my Wrangler clearing its large spare tire.. I didn't think it would when we bought the car - but was pleasantly surprised.
Can't open the rear door with it on of course... But works great on back of Wrangler when towing as a toad... Holds up to 4 bikes on the version i have as they state it - 3 is more likely the reasonable max with handlebars, etc...

It locks in the receiver securely with provided hitch pin/screw combination - and locks (think the lock was separate)

Use it on the back of RV if not towing - and back of the Wrangler when towing...

Sample link: Amazon.com: Yakima DoubleDown 4-Bike Hitch Mount Rack: Sports & Outdoors

(I have no affiliation with Yakima... just use and like the product...)
