Will Do! We are for sure going camping the last weekend of August, but I may be hooking it up to do some work on the parking pad...if so, I will snap a picture...

OK great, that's what we'll have when we get the new trailer next spring.

For those requesting pictures....I hooked it up today and threw 3 bikes on it and snapped a few pictures. I have a 2016 Ford 150 Super Crew Lariat for comparison. I did not hook up the WDH, so it is sagging a little, but there is plenty of clearance over the tailgate!

Those of you with Roos, this was not a choice when I did my research last year. You cannot open the front bunk without completely taking the entire Stromberg off your frame. I believe I only have like 1" clearance above my propane tanks when the bunk is open as I Remember.

We went camping this weekend and took bikes for everyone in the family, so to kind of close out my original post, I thought I would post the actual pictures of the bike rack in action. We are a family of 4, so I needed 4 bikes. I feel three bikes is just about the right amount to put on this front bike bunk. Especially with the kids bikes...they are kind of funny shaped and needed to be worked with to get them to even fit...the kids have about outgrown these bikes, so they will be getting regular grown up bikes soon. I think regular mountain bikes would fit much better....

I put my mountain bike on the back ladder rack that I installed. It worked really well. I used bungee cords to keep it snug against the ladder. It is made to hold two bikes and I would feel comfortable with that if needed. I thought about hanging some fancy reclining chairs there too, but decided against that for this trip.

Anyway, everything worked great and I hope this post helps some people...oh, I did see another travel trailer driving down the highway with two bikes attached to the rear bumper. Those things were moving like crazy and it did not look very stable and I can see the concern with adding weight to the flimsy rear bumpers...I wish I had taken a picture, but we were in heavy traffic....

I mount all 4 of our bikes inside to the bench seats using fork mounts. They are inside so they can not walk away and cost about $40

Very nice, well done, looks good... in my case, I opted to place the bikes in the bed of the truck.
