Sabre bike rack- pics and installation

Anyone who got the optional bike rack with their Sabre - can you show me the mechanics of how it works? I'm buying a generator or two and plan on installing a similar rack like the bike rack (frame supported) to carry them. (Actually, I want to have a box built that I can run in, with a short plug for around the corner, and lots of big ideas.. but, I need to tackle the rack first.)

I've actually kicked around just buying one of the Sabre ones and building on top of it- but my guess is that it's spendy for what it is.

This is the best I've got on my phone right now. If you text me next weekend I'll take some better pics of everything. (These are zoomed in some and screen shotted, hope they turn out)

So it's literally mounted to the bumper? Or arms that support the bumper?

Based on the sticker- is this it? Maybe not as the pics don't seem to match.

That is not it. It mounts to the black rails you see going to the frame under the camper. It goes up and down using trailer hitch pin system like these. One hole to hold up and one hole to hold down. The rack itself is made of slots to insert the bikes into. Of course it fits adult bikes but kids bikes don't sit right in it.

This is from a very old thread on bike racks. If you click on the attachment it is a down pick of the bike rack.

Your link didn't seem to work.

I'm most curious how it mounts to the camper. I think we'll make a simple rack that doesn't fold. I dunno; we'll see.

here are some more pics from another old thread. Look at post number 5. Sadly my fiver is in storage so I can't get pics right now.

There is a square plate, about 5" square and 3/16-1/4" thick that is welded to the rectangular tubing that holds the bumper and runs underneath the bunkhouse several feet and the stab jacks mount to the rectangular tubing also.
The bike rack bolts to those square plates.
