Really two adult bikes on a ladder rack. A little unhandy at times but efficient.

We transport two (20") kids bikes and two ("26") adult bikes on the rear of trailer. The bike rack is bolted on and I've never had problems with it. Can actually act as a platform when bikes are off. I think my loa is about 35' with rack. Still not optimal and can be difficult to work bikes on and off when there is a steep slope behind the pad.

I was planning to store inside TT. So there is plenty of room to put through door? i think the doors are about 30 inches wide arent they

thanks and hope you are well

Do you have pictures of your rack and how you mounted the bikes?

I want to build a tongue mount but I haven't yet. I have the design all worked out in my head. I just can't get my derrière in gear. I'll post pics one of these days when I get around to fabricating it.

#4 - (me again) thinking about the top of the truck
#5 - front of the truck
#6 - back on top of the TV

OK, how about position #7?? I have a Trac Rack system with tonneau cover on my truck. I had a bunch of left-over Yak Rack parts from previous vehicle set-ups, so I came up with this: I made adapters to connect a Yak Rack gutter mount to my Trac Rack rails, added 6.5" crossmembers, and Yak Copperhead bike racks to the mix. Total amount additional money spent was under $5 for aluminum flatbar and screws.

This system has worked out good for us. It is a little trouble to step over the racks if I need to get to the front of the bed (if I can't get to the item by reaching over the side), but doable. If you don't have any type of bed rail system, then you could clamp it or bolt it to the bed rail.
