Just thought I would share my Bike rack solution for taking my bikes along.
I looked at a hitch welded on the back of the trailer, but my local shop wanted $500 for that and then a 5 bike rack was about another $500. Found this rack for 5 bikes for $299 and then built a platform for it. The rack is designed to sit in the bed of the truck, but putting it above the bed leaves room for the grill, propane tank, generator etc. I made the rails adjustable so I can move the platforms as necessary.
It was a little tricky as one of my bikes has a shorter wheelbase, so the back/front wheels barely fit onto 1 board. I could have just added another board farther forward as well. Really flexible setup. Plus I like the look of the quarter sawed white oak!! Looks nostalgic.
It worked really well.
