White Hawk bike rack question

My wife and I just ordered a White Hawk 29REKS. We got the bike rack option. From what I understand it is on the A frame. Does anyone have a picture of how this looks they could share? Thank you

This. Anyone?
I am torn (still) between a small Fifth like the 24 cktsa or 27.5, and a white hawk TT 26rk.
One of my concerns is the ability to bring a couple of heavier ebikes with us, they weigh in about 50lb a pop. The white hawk bumper is just not up to the task, even with added aftermarket brackets, I would worry.



Hey Jayco: Make the white hawk with integrated 2" receiver!!!!!! Like the Cougar!

Lippert makes/offers one that goes on the A frame. Google will show you that one if the correct one.

I forget the brand of bike rack that came with our trailer, but we have pretty nice bikes and I didn't want them hanging by the wheels with any possibility of frame damage, so we opted for this the Stromberg Carlson CC-275 Bike Bunk for Cargo Tray (from Amazon) and then a Yakima DrTray 2-bike hitch rack from REI.

Currently looking at having a professional welder fab something up with additional brackets and frame extensions. Then weld a 2 ď receiver on the bumper.

Did anyone post a picture? We are also trying to figure out if we want the Jayco Bike rack, or go for an after market version.

Sorry that I can't post a picture for our Hummingbird. It's wrapped up for the winter. I suggest aftermarket. Here's the mount we put on our trailer tongue.

Sorry that it doesn't have a good picture. It took about an hour to install. We then bought a rack from REI.

This may well be more money than many would spend on a bikerack, but I use the rack on our TV as well as the mount with the trailer. We are a big biking family and I plan on hauling the trailer to races in the area, and club vacations. For me, the Jack-it rack seemed just too flimsy and not "gentle" enough for our bikes.

Bike Rack Dilemna Solved!

Thanks, everyone. I think we've figured it out. U Tube also had a video explaining how the system worked. The husband doesn't want to modify the bumper just yet since it will void the warranty. We are going to get the Jack-It and put extra bungee cords on the bikes to secure them more than just the straps.
