I have to go look at my bumper when I get home. I even thought about a strap from the back of the rack to attach to my ladder. I might have to get one as the bikes on the front hitch is getting old. lol..

I have a front hitch installed on my Greyhawk RV. I carry the spare up front and the bikes in back. I have not been able to see any significant temp differences using my Scan Gauge II to monitor engine coolant, trans temp, etc. All seem normal. Etreme heat of the summer and mid day driving may make it run a little warmer, but not by much.

I carry 4 bikes in front and have not had any temp problems even in summer heat. The issue I have is site. I am tired of the bikes in my view.

Stumbled across this a while back and saved the pics. I am considering trying something like this. Only issue is I would have to figure out how to haul my canoe when I install my racks.

Use Rhino Rack and now 3 Yakima Raptors, 2 smaller bikes inside TT beside the bunk beds. Jayco told me that my bumper would not support a hitch rack, so kept TV rack and bike trays from previous TV/TT combo.

Now looking to build a wood kayak rack using stake holes in bed of TT.

That's a nice rack. Lot's of room for firewood underneath.

I have a 5 slot rack made out of PVC pipe that fits perfectly in the bed o my truck and can also be used on the ground at the campsite.

Yeah, I need something to keep the bed space free for firewood! The little woman never thinks we have enough firewood! And if there is no campfire, the little woman is NOT a happy camper!
Haven't tackled this project yet, but its on the list.

Belljl, do you have the factory accessory rails in your bed? If so then you just need to buy the bike holder mount that slides right into the accessory rail. I got mine from Amazon. it worked out well till I sold my Tundra and got a F150 with no rails.

I'm planning to eventually use the fork QC in the bed of the truck. That's a good idea on the dinette though, I like it!
