Thought about the front receiver but also hear about negative effects on the cooling system (expecially with that many bikes). came across this also as a possible outside solution and is transferable to any future TT but $$

On our recent trip to Disney we put 4 bikes ontop of cardboard and secured all together with two straps with a few wraps around the table pole to kind of hold things in place. slipped some addl cardboard on the cabinet and couch sides then covered with two moving blankets for addl protection from scratches etc while in transit. after the 500 mi trip each way the bikes didnt move at all and hod no real issues.

Good morning everyone. I just broke down and and got the Arvika "series 7000 in black from Dolney RV of Kawkawlin, MI. I spoke with Pat the parts manager at
(989) 686-6291. It is a bit pricey. It mounts to the tongue over the LP tanks, holds 4 bike( 3 adult and 1 child). He was a great help and it was delivered in 5 days. Any questions feel free to contact me.

I like that system exjay.

Thanks for sharing,

Would you be willing to say how much you paid? And what was the shipping cost? Thanks.

We do the bikes on a front rack but its not ideal for me. It does effect your view of the road. Still trying to find another way.[ATTACH][/ATTACH]

Exjay I have the same TT as you and the same problem and no answer for this yet as I have been looking around for awhile now. Just came back from our central coast trip here in Ca. and our bikes were laid on the floor in the TT wrapped up. If I do come up with something positive & in-expensive I'll be in touch. Happy Rving !

I put up to 6 bikes inside the trailer. I put them inside in such a way as they can not shift. I cover strategic areas with towels and blankets so nothing rubs on the cabinets or other surfaces.
