What truck carrier will work with mt 2012 Lexus RX350. I am concerned that the spoiler at the top of my rear door which covers the rear windshield washer is not strong enough to hold the rack when loaded with bikes. Please advise.

I checked with Thule and the Raceway Trunk Mounted Bike Rack # TH9001 that you referenced is confirmed to work on your vehicle. They thoroughly test the application of this bike rack on vehicles. If it was not going to work on your vehicle they would not recommend it. They will err on the side of caution also if there is a possibility that rack would cause damage to your vehicle.
I attached a review video and installation instructions for this product for you to check out also.
If you plan on carrying any womens or alternative framed bikes without a horizontal top tube you might also be interested in purchasing a Thule Bike Adapter Bar # TH982XT to provide a horizontal top tube for the rack to attach to easier. I attached a review video for this product for you to check out also.
