Bike rack 26L

Has anyone "adapted" a bike rack to hang on the camper? We have a family of 5 and this is our first year with it, so far we are just placing them inside between the couch and dinette, at the front of the camper. The other fear I have is that they don't offer this option due to weight balance on the trailer, any ideas?

It depends. Some of the frames aren't made to carry any weight on the back bumper. We used to carry our bikes inside our old trailer, but we got a PU last year and now carry them in the bed. Of course it's only 2 of us. Maybe carry two in the front of your tow vehicle, and a 4 place rack for the top?

I had never thought about a roof mount, we have a 2002 Ford Explorer V-8 that is our Tow Vehicle, and it has a roof rack!

You can get 4 on the roof by staggering them front to back.
