That is when I asked them to tell me what my option was that wouldn't void my warranty, that's when they said a bumper mount, or a ladder mount but need storage for 3-4 bikes, I disagreed with him as I have seen bumpers with those kinds of hitches, and have heard about gel coats cracking with ladder mounts.
I have also heard of bikes causing damage to the ladder mounts and gel coat siding as well. Feel free to disagree. Also feel free to pony up cash for any damage caused to the camper or bikes lost to the freeway gods.
Big world out there with lots of opinions. I won't follow a camper with bikes on the bumper though...
Oh, one more thing. I still have my curt bumper mount receiver on the camper's bumper. I used it for storing the bikes when in camp after hauling them there on the front of the truck. I have also used it as a flag pole mount. No bikes live there any more.
