Bike rack question.

We have a Puma 295bhk. It has a rear entrance for the rear bedroom. Therefore it has a split rear bumper. Is there such a bike rack that can go in the receiver of your TV and still pull a 5th wheel?

I don't see how one would work. I'm looking at adding a front hitch to my truck, cost is about $200 at etrailer.com and putting the bikes on the front.

I suspect that Lippert made you frame and they have some solutions to adding a bike rack to the back of their frames that might work. May give them and call and see what they can do for you.

How about installing a front receiver on your tv?

I believe that a front rack is the answer.

I like a fifth wheel pin mounted bike rack.

I thought someone here made one to hold the bikes over their pin.

Here's the first one that my father-in-law made me:
Learn To RV: DIY Fifth Wheel Pin Box Bike Rack - pictures


I've since gotten a new pin box and he made a new one for that.
