I don't think I would add one on our Crusader's. Bolt on or weld on. There are other options to carry bikes.

I have pictures, and if your bumper extension is like mine you'll be fine.

What options are you talking about?...

Turbs are those the brackets that came with it? I don't have as much room as you but I'll have to double check and I am pretty sure there is enough for the bolt on...

I already had the rack, the brackets I ordered from palomino who in turn ordered them through lippert.

I feel like this might be a good option for us...waiting to see what newfie's other ideas are...

Never thought carrying bikes on a camper would be such an ordeal...but thanks everyone for the input so far...

We have a 2013 Rockwood 2608 ws ultra lite TT and. I had a length of angle iron welded across the top and back of bumper and frame to beef it up and added a bolt on hitch with a cargo carrier for our electric bikes and have traveled for a couple of years and have not had any problems of any kind. Good luck

I guess your selection depends on how many bikes you have. We take 2, 26" Diamondback Mt. Bikes on our trips. They go in the "basement" or pass through storage on our Crusader 320 RLT. Front wheels have easy, quick disconnect and seats come off. Plenty of room in there for the bikes and everything else we want, or at least has been so far. The crunch will come when I try to add my 17' Grumman canoe to the mix.

Interesting...never really thought about that. We will have 2 or 3 bikes. With my rig I am not sure if the basement is big enough, but I will sure scope it out.

modification to the upright

We've had this on our TT and our 5th. The upright post to hold the bikes is a bit of a problem as it rubs the bike frame and takes off the paint. To correct that I purchased a rack from Walmart that was designed for a 2" receiver hitch. It turns out that the outer tube fits perfectly over the upright piece. I cut the upright a little shorter so that my wheels would fit down in the platform.
