Bike Rack on Forester MBS 2401R

Just occurred to us that due to the slide for the bed opening out to the rear of our motorhome, that it may prevent the possibility of attaching a bike rack? Does anyone have one or have any comments?

Our baby is in storage at the moment, so we're just visualizing this project.

Thank you!

Use a step down adapter in your hitch to lower the bikes if required.

Mary Ann, here is a thread on the topic, 24R rear slide size?
Good luck!

Bike Rack

I have a Solera 24R and purchased a Swagman XC Tow bike rack that holds 2 bikes. You can see it on Camping World web site item # 49402.
After you get to the camp site and remove the bikes you pull a pin and the vertical support lays down flat and gives you more than enough room to extend the slide. I also had to get a tow bar extension to keep the handle bars away from the rear of the coach. Shop around for best price and do not forget to lower the vertical support before operating slide out. It works great.
