I have the Blain Merrill design through the bumper heavy duty hitch. I think everyone will agree that it is ideal for the GMC. Available through Applied GMC. I carry a bike weighing a little over 400 lbs (KLR 650). I would highly recommend a Versa Haul Sport Bike Carrier, specifically the one with a class three hitch on the end of it. I strongly recommend it as it is rated at 600 lbs, and the ramp assembly can be adjusted forward and backwards as needed. This allows you to slide the ramp assembly forward to tuck the bike in closely to the rear of the coach, thus reducing the leverage force that is placed on the hitch. The closer you can carry the weight to the hitch the better experience you will have. When my bike is tied down it is no more than about a half an inch from the spare. Custom made is great but the Versa Haul is turn key and gives you the flexibility to tuck the bike in really close to the spare or rear of the coach.
