Bikes inside

Anyone carry your bike inside of the camper A-Frame (sides down) while traveling. We pick up ours tomorrow there seems to be space inside. We will have a 2014 A128S and will not carry one of the tables Thanks

Never thought about it. But with the front wheel removed it should work. In visualising dong that in my camper, the tricky part would be lifting the far side wall and reaching the latches with the bike in the way. On yours that might not be a problem though.

I'd suggest putting down an old blanket or something first to protect the floor and the cabinetry. Let us know how it works out.

1st apologies.

Sorry 2TR. Didn't intend to hijack your thread.

And I got the length wrong. It is a 9' not 11'. My wifes Old Towne Otter. Mine is 11'.

Raise the roof. Raise the door side. Put a towel or a blanket or something on the other (down) side. With one person standing inside a second person outside lifts the kayak onto the down side. From there the inside person takes control, sliding the kayak parallel to the door side and (kinda on top of the microwave cabinet) then angles the nose of the yak onto the floor. At least in a A213HW there is enough room to raise the other side. Then we secure the yak on its side on the floor using foam pipe insulation etc.

Obviously it wont work for all campers/Kayaks.

It's not as hard as it sounds. You just need to go slow and be careful. First time we did I dented the rear wall a tiny bit. But we carried it that way about 3,000 miles.

We put a bike in our 192HW. It has a kickstand, so we just put it in the camper on both of it's wheels. Packed stuff around the bike to hold it in place, and it worked just fine.
