Bike rack over LP tanks

I've new to the camper world. Just bought my first camper - Salem 30QBSS. Just got back from our first weekend of camping. All went well...however I NEED A BIKE RACK! I have 3 small kids (6, 3 & 2) along with my wife and 2 adult and 3 kids bikes to haul. Threw them all in the back of the pickup this time,but I don't want to do that anymore (need pickup box space for firewood etc.).

I have read all the bike rack posts and have decided that I like the looks / functionality of the style that mounts above the fron LP tanks on the hitch. However, I've only seen the ones made by Arvika - However, they are pretty expensive! Or are they...what exactly does From CA$490* to CA$690* mean!? I assume it's $490 to $690 Canadian!?

So, anyone have any sources for similar style bike racks for less money!?

I've seen those too and yes, that's Canadian. I've considered building my own but haven't done it yet.

Our dealer quoted $550 for that rack, and I believe it'll only hold 3 bikes at most. That's the rack that I'd like as well, but need to save a few more pennies first. I believe they have a version that can come off the trailer and also mount to a hitch mount on your truck for more use. I checked with a Camping World in NY State, and they did not have the product in their catalog.
