Someone had a post showing how they built a bike rack to fit their TT. Is was made of 1 1/2" plastic pipe and appeared quite sturdy. They would take it out at the campground and continue to use it. I looked thru the mod section here and could not find it so must have been on a different forum. I plan to wrap the bikes in moving blankets and place them in the trailer.

i'm going to mount a step up into the front bed... more like a box, with a hinged top, and gonna put a bike mount or two in there... just open up the lid, mount the forks, bungee them together in the back, and roll out. well... i have a few issues with my idea so far... not sure how much room i will have to work the bikes in...

i've come up for a few more options if this doesn't work... with all that room inside, no way am i going to hang them off the back of the camper, or top of the truck...

i'll take some photos of this stuff when i figure it out in a few weeks.

We've stored our between the sofa and table wrapped in blankets. I worry about the weight with a single axel trailer so this year they will go on roof rack of the town vehicle.

That is a very good idea. I am looking forward to seeing the pictures.

That was me I have a picture of it in the mods forum with all of my mods picture
If you go this route and have questions or would like to see more pictures let me know.
Our bikes are very secure as we have a rack in the front and one in the back of the bikes. Does take a little bit of time to put the racks and bikes in but they do not move around during transport.

I also saw one idea for a hybrid on the forum that someone just attached a car bike rack, the type that hooks onto a trunk, onto the front of the fold down bed.
