yes you can make it work. It wont be exactly like an adult bike in the standard position. The span between the cradle arms is 15". They have tie-downs so if you put the bike lopsided it can be secured.

When installed properly, the rack will be safe at 65 mph. I live in Florida and recently traveled on I75 at 70 mph with no problems. It is recommended that an additional strap be used to prevent the bike(s) from swaying (mentioned on instructions).

It feels fine, I do not drive slow and most of the time the trails are far from my house, I think it is a sturdy rack, it is just not user friendly for getting it on and off and for getting it to fold back so that I can get into my hatch.

answer 1
I normally carry only 1 bike on a Chevy HHR. My trick is to bungee-chord the wheels and pedals from movement. The bike would have to come unattached to scratch the car (hasn't happened yet). The rack extends rearward from the receiver approximately 6 inches.

Yes if you have a hitch receiver. O your car it would be 1 1/4. the only thing that will scratch the car is pedals. You can remove the one nearest the car during transport.

answer 3
If there is a supported sized hitch (1-1/4 or 2") you should be fine.

There is about 4" between the rack and the tailgate on my truck. The handlebars of my bike do not hit the tailgate.

answer 4
If you have a 1 1/4" receiver it will fit and the bikes won't touch the car. I run a bungee cord from the front to back tire on the bike closest to the car which keeps the front wheel straight.

Yes it will mount, and if you do not secure the bikes with an extra cord, they can scratch the car, however if properly tied down, this is an excellent choice.

Should not be a problem at all. Except for the hitch, nothing touches your car and bike does not move enough to swing back to hit your car.

It's made to plug into a 2 or 1 1/4 inch hitch. Some 5th wheels have a hitch on the rear bumper. If your bumper has the hitch it will work.

I can't see why it couldn't be used on an RV. I use a bike rack that hangs from my ladder on the back of the RV and this rack would be safer in my opinion. You would, of course have to bolt a receiver to your RV bumper.

I put this on the back of a Chevy Avalanche. The GMC Sierra is basically the same vehicle.

The biggest concern would be the size of your trailer hitch. If the Sierra is like my Avalanche, your hitch should be 2". Just use the shims and the proper lock bolt.
