Comment (by Nuwan Goonasekera):

 Based on the patch proposed by Markus Holtermann, I've created a migration
 operation that extends the existing RenameModel migration, and it seems to
 be working as expected. Sharing in case someone else runs into the same
 issue. I've only tested this with Django 2.1.7.

 from django.db import migrations, models

 class RenameModelAndBaseOperation(migrations.RenameModel):

     def __init__(self, old_name, new_name):
         super(RenameModelAndBaseOperation, self).__init__(old_name,

     def state_forwards(self, app_label, state):
         old_remote_model = '%s.%s' % (app_label, self.old_name_lower)
         new_remote_model = '%s.%s' % (app_label, self.new_name_lower)
         to_reload = []
         # change all bases affected by rename
         for (model_app_label, model_name), model_state in
             if old_remote_model in model_state.bases:
                 new_bases_tuple = tuple(
                     new_remote_model if base == old_remote_model
                     else base
                     for base in model_state.bases)
                 state.models[model_app_label, model_name].bases =
                 to_reload.append((model_app_label, model_name))
         super(RenameModelAndBaseOperation, self).state_forwards(app_label,
         state.reload_models(to_reload, delay=True)

 class Migration(migrations.Migration):

     operations = [
