I have a Crusader and would like to add the bike rack you are discussing. My concern is drilling into the frame or frame extensions to mount the rack voiding any warranties. What do you think?

They drill it from the factory when adding this rack see pic above

Thanks so much for these pics and info, Turbs and MillerTime. This is exactly what I wanted to know.

And, if it is just mounted to the support arms- then this makes my life a lot easier. I was worried that there was more support to the frame back under the camper to support this.

Now, to design a generator box to let me run them within it.

I believe sabre says 450 lbs. Total weight.

The mounts I shown can be bought through sabre parts.

I'm hoping to keep the weight down as much as possible. I need to total stuff up, though.

I think I'll call about the brackets- find out what they cost.

Will the Rack work with any trailer? I had thought about adding a 2" receiver hitch but this seems better.

I had checked on this at Goshen, if you notice the trailer frame extends out past the trailer body, more so than other trailers. This allows for space to mount the brackets. I checked with Libert and they stated that trailer frame warranty was only good for two years. They suggeted cutting off the bumper and having an extension welded to accomitate the bike bracket, then add the bumper back to the extended frame. They offered to do it at their shop in Goshen, but time did not permitt it for me.

Not likely. Any TT or 5er I've seen with the LCI rack from the factory had the frame rails extended at least 6" beyond the normal configuration, in order to allow room for the rack to fold up. Without the extra length on the frame rails there may not be enough room for the brackets and rack. In any event, you'd want to verify with your frame manufacturer if your frame is designed to handle the weight of the rack and the bouncing of the load on the rack.

If you want to add a 2" receiver, don't use the ones that are installed on the bumper. Have it welded to the frame.
