Bike Rack for Melbourne 24K

We'd like to carry two ebikes on the back of our 24K, but are wondering if there's a way to do it without having to unload bikes every time we want to put out the rear slide bed. With the weight of the ebikes, we don't have a lot of options on the racks we can use. Wondering if anyone else carries an ebike on the Melbourne, and if so, which one? Thanks!

We have a rear slide bed as well and although we haven't installed one of these it may be the option for you;

Im not sure what an ebike is but if you have enough carying capacity on the front axle maybe you could install a receiver in the front of the truck.

Thanks for the suggestion. We are definitely looking at any and all options. ebikes are electric, with pedal assist. The biggest issue is that they are heavy - about 60 lbs each. That really limits the bicycle racks we can use, but surely there's a way.

We are also looking to carry a couple of eBikes, and I'm thinking the rack might be something along the lines of what is used to carry a golf cart. I have seen some that look like they mount on the rear hitch, but have not investigated further.

Without the rear slide bed, you should be able to
Use one of the Hollywood or Swagman racks. They have some designed to hold the heavier bikes.
