Finally had time to try out this mod today and unfortunately it didn't work for me in my 23rb. It was the bikes and not the modification. It really is a great idea and I am glad that I tried it out because it is one of the cheapest mods I think I have tried so far.

I to did a mod to utilize my dinette as a bike rack. I went about it a little differently. I up graded the plywood under the seat cushions and also added a little more bracing to the frame work underneath. Then I mounted fork mounts to the new plywood. I also added an 1/8" X 2" aluminum flat bar to also strengthen the plywood and to help alieviate any side to side sway from the bike while in transit.

So far works great. We used it over our summer vacation which I drove about 4,000 miles round trip.

I don't have photos right now and it may be a while because the 5er is in the shop for some warranty work.

We can ride into town even if it's 20-25 miles away and it's the only way to see the Red Woods so you can look all around. They can go all the way up to Pikes Peak.
HOLY MOLY those are expensive!!

OP, great job! I love the idea! Those dinette legs are known to be a bit wobbly and/or not attached very well at the bottom; any problems or concerns with that?
