When I stopped at the scale a guy pulled in behind me and told me the bikes were bouncing all over the place and looked like they were going to fall off.
I looked them over and the seems secure to me. Hard headed pilot that I am I headed out for Andrews FAMCAMP our first stop. See snow picture.
By the next stop the bumper caps had worked their way completely out and we lost both of them. The bikes spent the rest of the 3 months riding inside the camper.
Next we tried the front of the truck. After about 150 bucks worth of hardware and a new bike carrier, this worked much better until I noticed the front of the hood had tons of dents in it from the handle bars.
After about 500 bucks worth of attempts, the bikes ride inside now.
