ThunderRoad, can you post a picture showing your rack mounted and Equalizer bars on the L brackets?

Here ya go. The equalizer bracket is in front of the crossbar behind the tanks. The bike rack mounting bracket is as close to the cargo rack as possible.

NOTE: The equalizer bracket is a little close to the tanks for my comfort (they can rub), so I will be moving the tanks forward a couple inches. This will also give me the space to replace the vinyl tank cover with a hard-side plastic one.

Thanks. Mine would probably be a similar arrangement.

Do you think I'll be able to get three adult bikes in the front deck of my A122BH? Thinking I may have to loosen the handlebars to turn them parallel to the bike frame. Where did you attach strap to trailer, just fence or down to deck?

3 bikes will fit, I strapped them to the lip of the base and they were very secure. I remove one set of bars to get the bikes on and off easily. We love the extra open space up front while we camped and the rails doubled as a clothes line to dry wet towels and clothes.

It'll fit, but be tight and not usable for much anything else. I like the prorac bike rack for the bikes because I use the storage rack for hauling coolers, wood, etc instead.

Fantastic!

My thought exactly. We were lamenting the loss of our clothes line on our tent trailer (we would clip towels to the lower edge of the canvas on the pull out beds). But once I put my hand on the bike rail, I knew we had a new clothesline!

First trip out this weekend. Just to the fairgrounds for a square dance festival, so hardly roughin' it, but can't wait to get it out on the road!

So I'm looking to do the same set up...with the support rack. The bike rack you have mounted on there...how long are the support arms for the bikes to rest on? I need to have 4 bikes...and wanted to mount them that same way...but am worried that they will hit the car when I turn.

Looks like a great set up idea. Wonder why others aren't building this same thing?
