Mark,

I don't have four, but I do have one that keeps me playing in traffic (loaded for a weekend camping trip):

Nice, I like how clean it looks.
I would personally be a little concerned about the fact that both Jayco and the frame manufacturer say "no" to attaching anything to the frame. Maybe it's just a precaution on their side ....
How many bikes at what weight do you think would be ok? Our four bikes come in at 140 lbs total.
I ended up putting a bike rack over the bed of my truck (can still use the bed under the truck for everything else).

Thanks - I did some testing with the 3 bikes on it and mentioned elsewhere I ran a ratcheting tiedown to the hybrid bed locks to take the slop out of the Thule rack...too much bouncing on the camera.

I did throw a standard drawbar into it and stood on it myself and bounced up and down and didn't see or feel any flex other than the TT axles. I'm 220 lbs so I definitely think it's capable of the bikes or even a tray with my gen on it.

I know Jayco doesn't want anything back there but my welder actually looked the frame construction over real well (he didn't want to do any work that might cause an issue or fail in any way - if anyone is in MN and needs a welder, I highly recommend Bohn Welding in St. Louis Park) and he was impressed with the strength and design of the frame rails for an "ultra-lite" trailer.

After the paint fully cures and I've hauled the bikes a few times I will be looking very closely for any "witness" marks indicating serious flexing etc. In the meantime, the season is almost over and I'm not sure how many more trips I will take with the kids.

Welcome to the JOF.

If you don't get some responses, it might be best for you to start a new topic. This thread is rather old.

Jayco 23b carrier on rear bumber

I would like to add a carrier for my portable dog pen (less than 100 lbs) to the rear of my 23b hybrid camper. My bumber is bolted to the camper frame. There are additional holes in the frame. Can these holes be used to attach structure to attach the carrier? I was thinking I could attach the bottom of the carrier to the bumber with a bolt on attachment and then add reenforcement attached to these holes. How will this affect my warranty?

You may get better response if you start a new thread with your question in lieu of tagging in onto this older thread. If you want to do that ask a mod for help.
