Bicycle Holder

Any thoughts about adding a 2 inch receiver to the back bumper of the TT for the purpose of transporting 3 bicycles? I appreciate the input.

If you have a light weight trailer, ABSOLUTELY NOT!

I would do a search on this forum. I have done it in the past but I looked at the welded connection on my bumper to the frame and found the connection was pretty good. a lot of the connection will barely hold the bumper on let alone three bikes and a rack bouncing around on it. A lot of people say not to do it unless you get a fabricator to beef up the bumper connection.

New in the Camping World catalogue is this "bike bunk" that is installed on the front yoke, behind and above the LP tanks. I ordered one a week ago but it must come from the manufacturer not CW and it has not yet shipped. I am hoping this is the solution to my bike problem.

Of course, this goes with the current discussion in this forum about always needing something new for your RV!!

I had a 2" receiver installed on the FRONT of my truck to hold the bike rack. Did not want the load on the back of the trailer.

If your trailer has a "fabricated" I beam frame, they are not designed for anything to be added. I would consider adding a hitch if it has a structural I beam frame if done by a competent welding shop.

This doesn't solve the 3 bike problem but it might be worth a look.
