What about over the tongue? Currently researching that option myself right now.

We put a front receiver for bike rack on our Silverado. It has been great for 4000 miles.

A bike rack on the front encounters a lot of wind. We replaced our old rack that held the bikes by the crossbars with a Swagman that supports the bikes by the tires with a clamp that slides down onto the crossbar. It is much much better

Rear mounted bike carriers can be problematic. We went through an area of road construction where they had removed the asphalt, exposing the clay base after a rain. By the time we came out the other side, the motor home and bikes where so plastered that everything was the same color, the gear changers and cables all seized, seats saturated with liquid clay. Several hours later at the campsite washing everything, re-lubing and freeing up derailiers and brake cables. Not a good time. We've been thinking of getting some of the folding bikes advertised at Camping World, at least they could be folded up and put in a storage compartment.

Right now we have 2 bikes on the top of the truck, 2 inside rear of camper, and one strapped across the gear in the bed of truck. Will probably get one more Yakima Raptor and then have three on top. I have used this configuration on two different TV and 2 different TT over the past 5+ years.

Mount bike rack around ball mount

I purchased the Swagman XP towing rack from etrailer.com that slides onto the 2" square ball mount. So now I can tow the trailer and carry 3 bikes in a bike rack.

I used to just carry the bikes in the trailer, but they get in the way when we go inside the trailer and slide around when towing. Also, this is a cheaper option than mounting a trailer hitch on either the rear of the trailer or the front of my tow vehicle.
