Dan,

i'll take some pics and post them. the factory cargo tray on mine has an upright that when stowed is folded down. but when you want it swivels upright, locks into place with a pin, and allows you to secure to it. keeping everything upright.

Thanks blamb97, I have that upright too but just haven't figured how to keep the bikes upright and secure. Looking forward to seeing your set up.

I place my bikes inside the trailer. It keeps them out of the rain, no weight hanging off the back bumper and nothing on the roof of my truck. It may not be the perfect solution but it works for us. We position them and cover them with blankets as not to scratch or damage the interior of the trailer. I put 5 bikes in there. It is a pia but it cost nothing and causes no issues. The weight of the bikes is directly over the axles as well.

Just another solution.

I plan to put a hitch on the front of my 2500HD Chevy Diesel. I store my trailer at a lot, so it will be a piece of cake to load the bikes onto the front of the truck and then not have to move them.

Need the best location for 4 bikes.

Do the bikes block your view in the front? Are they above the hood?

I used Yakima roof racks for years and that's the way to go IMO. Unless u want to load them in the trailer itself, but if they r muddy etc, that gets old quick

Here are a few pics of my new set up for carrying bikes. This is a 3-bike rack. I only had 2 bikes on it as the kids bikes are too small for the rack. I was able to leave my tonneau cover on the bed with everything under it without the bikes back there. Worked perfectly!!

Loaded, hitched and ready to roll!!

I've seen other people say don't mount to the trailer bumper and don't use a hitch receiver that bolts to the trailer bumper for a bike rack. I'm pretty new to the RVing thing also and am looking for a solution for the bikes. My buddies trailer has a bolt on receiver with bike rack and it looks to work fine for him.

Why is it a bad idea?

The bumpers fall off from the weight and you loose your bikes.
