24R rear slide size?

Love the warning on the switch! We use blue painter tape for no-no's (like water heater when its tank is empty, water pump when the FW tank is empty). We have. 2401R and plan to take bikes with a drop down rack, so we will be taping that one off too! Otherwise a disaster is just too likely despite the best discipline (realizing preferably someone would always be out there watching...).

We are looking for a solution to adding bike racks on our RV or on the car that we tow.
We would appreciate any suggestions.

I don't like my bikes outside, so I tow a Honda HR-V. With the bike front wheels off I can mount the bikes on "bike tights", attached to a board in the back of the HR-V, so they ride upright and out of the weather. The HR-V and the Honda Fit were the only two current vehicles I could find which combined towability, (relatively) light weight, and the ability to carry bikes like this.

Well if you are towing a car, you can put the bikes on top of the car or on the back. That way they won't add to the weight of your RV against its GVWR (at least if you are towing it flat, without a dolly) and they won't be in the way of the rear slider (or the car towing hitch...you would have to choose car vs. bike on the back of the RV).
