I made it out of an old 12" section of an old 10" I-beam. Cut it on a 22* angle, flipped it over, cut one of the flanges off, welded a Harbor freight receiver on the top. Wasn't quite high enough for my liking due to my low profile tool box being so close, so I added another receiver with stock 1/2" x 2" steel as the riser.

2009kr is gaining momentum as a positive member of FTE.
My Swagman XP 4-bike works great on the back of my 5th wheel. I used the wimpy 1.25" hitch that my RV came with (plus 2" adapter) and made brackets to also attach it to the square bumper - very strong. The bracket I made was from a 24" T316 stainless steel bar I bought from Amazon.





Be sure to get the non-hinged bike rack; the hinged versions aren't RV-rated.
