Bicycle Stand

I am not talking about a way to carry bikes in a camper, on a camper, or on a truck. I was wondering if anyone had a way to park their bikes once at a campsite. I usually lean the bike under the front of the fifth wheel where it is protected from rain. Has anyone made a bike stand or something else to secure them while parked? I have sometimes come out and found mine toppled over from wind.

We used these in bicycle shops and they work well at home too.

One per wheel and the bikes would be very stable.
Wheeled stands give you the ability to roll the bike backward without the rear wheel turning
Sometimes it's really nice to be able to roll a bike backward

That is what is so nice about this forum. If you have a problem, someone usually has a great idea and this is a great one! I didn't know that such bike racks existed and your suggestion will work perfectly for me. In looking at Amazon, they also had one without wheels that would work for those who are a bit weight conscious. That one is made of plastic and doesn't roll. It can be found here:

Amazon.com: gearup The Grand Stand Single Bike Floor Stand, Black: Sports & Outdoors

I am ordering one and will have it before our next trip. Thanks, Twisty, for the tip.

I have several of these from Amazon. I use them to hold bikes in the toy hauler and then at the camp site. Hold two bikes easily.

I've looked at the plans for PVC bike racks for my sister a while back. It might be something you can look into.

I too wanted a bike rack for camping so I made one from some extra pool fencing and metal conduit. The only things I had to purchase were the two threaded rods that hold it together. It is large enough to hold five bikes and it can be easily locked to the trailer bumper with a cable lock to secure it and the bikes when we're away or sleeping. It does take up space in the bed of the truck but it is very light so it is well worth it.
