The rack is okay for hauling firewood etc. but does not work very well as a bike rack.
At the top of my priority list this year is to install a 2 inch receiver and get a good quality rack so that upon arrival at our destination I can remove it from the trailer and put it on the truck to make it easier to transport bikes to go biking in the vicinity of where we are camping or get dropped off to do some one way rides back to the camper. A proper bike rack would make loading bikes so much quicker and more secure.
If anybody has photos of what they had welded up as a receiver or even the stock receiver on the new Jaycos it would be greatly appreciated.
Here are some pictures of the stock hitch off the 2016, I had it on my custom order from Jayco. It appears bolted to a few pieces of angle iron welded directly to the frame very near the end of the rails, not sure if that angle iron was added just for this or not. This is a 2016 29BHDS
