Check out what these people did. I am sure our Jaycos are up to this mod. Just find a welding shop you trust.

Well here is the response from Jayco...

Thank you for the email and taking the time to contact
us here at Jayco. Jayco does not advise to make any modification to the
unit. Adding a bike rack would be a modification and you will need to be
aware that any damage that is caused by the install or the use of any
modification will not be covered by warranty. The frame was not tested
to add anything to back of and could cause damaged to the frame.


Not surprised. I may just wait out the warranty then go for it. We'll see how hauling bikes in the TT works for a few trip before making any changes.

That is the standard coperate line dictated by the lawyers. You have to do what you want. They will never tell you it's ok due to the legal ramifications.

Wait until after the warranty is up. We installed a hitch on our 5th wheel and pulled a small trailer with two 4x4 quads for four years. No problems at all.
