We went with Motow with an electric lift

We chose to install a hitch on the front of the truck after seeing our bikes bounce on the back of the RV. It also allows us to drive the bikes to trails without trying to load them in the bed of the truck, or transferring the hitch from the trailer to the truck

Thanks al
We have tried many Thule bike racks finally got a KuatÖfor our electric bikes. Hands down the BEST out there. We had to get a twelve inch extension to our hitch. Then had to have that welded on. This gave us enough room on the back of our Montana and support for two 65 pound e-bikes.

Thumbs up Electric Bike Rack

Just wanted to let everyone know that we had a problem with our bike rack and it managed to fall off the RV with the bikes attached. Not sure what happened, but the end result was the insurance co. covered the bikes no problem, but they would only cover the bike rack if it was an RV bike rack for EBikes. We had to prove to the insurance that this was the case by sending them a copy of our invoice for the bike rack and a letter from the bike shop explaining that the bike rack was RV approved and for EBikes. We have a Swagman Ebike RV rack so they covered everything. Enjoy your travels.
