Hauling bikes safely

My family loves to cycle, so we alwys have at least 4 or 6 bikes with us when we go camping. You never know when you might find the perfect mountain bike trail or an awesome road ride.

We also love our kayaks, so we needed a solution that was going to allow us to safely bring all of our toys. In the end we opted for some kayak racks on the truck, and a soft tailgate cover to protect the bikes and the truck. We even had extra space for the dog kennel, BBQ, and other weekend toys in the back.

Here's what our rig looks like:
