This is what I'm going to use. A pair of these mounted to a 2x4 with a little reinforcement here and there, strap the bikes down to the tie downs in the bed and I'm GTG. Perhaps a bit more expensive than the PVC, but I think this will work better for me...

I use a clamp on bike rack that attaches to the hitch shank. Here's what I use. http://www.amazon.com/gp/aw/d/B007EA...110_SY165_QL70 It works great and then when we are camping I have a car rack as well.

Yea, I'm always nervous I'm going to put a hole in the bathroom door, but we put them in the back and just try to pad them up. I thought about getting roof bike racks for the TV but I don't think I'd enjoy trying to get the bikes up and off the roof of the thing.

We have a welded receiver hitch secured to the frame. Works great.

Here are a few pics of my front tounge mounted bike rack. The front bunk just clears the rack when tipped down, lots of careful measuring before I built it.

I remember when you originally posted this....

I still think you need to sell these to your fellow JOF members!!

tslarson,
Do you have a WDH on your trailer? I love your idea and will try to duplicate, but wonder if there is enough room on the A rails to mount beyond the WDH clamps and the battery box support? Hope that makes sense not sure what the WDH parts are called that support the chains...

Incase your fabrication skills are not as good as tslarson's this is essentially the samething. http://www.campingworld.com/shopping...ike-bunk/72004

There was just enough room to mount between the battery tray and WDH brackets. I am sure each trailer is a bit different, so lots of careful measuring is needed to determine how it will fit.

The rear bumper is only rated for 100lbs.
The spare tire will already soak up 75lbs. The thickness of the rear bumper is thin and that's usually what gives up first. You would need to get to the frame if you wanted to do some thing that wont fall off.
