Wink Bike Rack

I relocated my spare tire to the bed of my pickup. I had the dealer weld a receiver on the rear of my camper. I don't think my two bike weigh anymore than the spare tire. I hope I don't have problems. 1200 miles so far with no problems.

I fabb'd up a junk yard class 4 receiver to mount onto my Fisher Minute Mount II sno plow frame. The receiver was 54" wide from a Mopar, and it was cut down just far enough to slide up between the plow frame mounts. Two 3" long, 1" wide grade course thread bolts with fender and lock washers and it bolts up nice and snug. I had two 5/16" plates, one on each end to slide into the plow mounts and keep the entre assembly from pivoting downward. I love it because the bike rack is mounted low beneath the bumper and keeps my field of view clear of most of the bikes.

2-3"X20"X3/16" thick angle irons
1-2"X4"X1/4" thick tube that is 71.25 inches long
8-7/16X1" length bolts, nuts and lock washers. 5/8" head
4-1/4"X1" length self tapping bolts with washers. 3/8" head
1-2"X12" Receiver
2.5"X4" Plate 3/16" plate cut in half diagonally to support Receiver
5.5" tall gusset welded in middle vertically and attached with self tapping bolts to inside rear tube of camper.
After I bolted up the angle Irons to the bottom of the camper I slid the 2X4" tube (horizontal) between them and leveled fore and aft, then tacked into place. After positing the receiver and center gusset, tacking them into place I removed the whole unit and finished welding, installing side gussets to the receiver.
excellent work there. your welds look factory, much better then the splatter I throw. I had thought about picking up one of those Reese universal receiver mounts that are adjustable to width and trying to fit it, but your approach looks so much nicer.
