Thanks again!

P.s., I contacted Forest River today about purchasing the Atwood bike rack. I'll post their cost when they get back with me.

The only other place I saw the Atwood for sale was Parts for my RV $95.70;

Great Price on the Surco Rack. FR selling the Atwood is just too expensive @ $150. My new rack showed up at my door yesterday. Took out of the box and it appears well made....in the USA!. I'm going out to the TT on Saturday to install.

Installed the Surco Ladder Bike Rack today. Easy install. I am glad I brought the bikes along to test though, because the spare tire had to be moved off center. Each rack mount attached to the ladder in two locations and each rested on one of the stairs for added support. I did not test on the road yet, but will in a couple of weeks. It feels solid. Here are some pics.

Hoping to install ours tomorrow (thanks for the heads-up about the spare tire). Safe travels!

Arrived at rv park and no issues with the bike rack. I was able to see the seat if my bike through the mirror all the way. Right now the DW and I are picnicking and getting ready for a bike ride in Black Rock My mountain State park, GA. I'll give a final review after trip completion tomorrow night.

Well little did I know....there is no biking on any trails in this state park. And for any brave person who wants to try and climb Black Rock Mountain with a 35 foot trailer in tow.....well you are a brave person. I did not try it. Stayed in an RV park down below. It would be an historic climb though. Incredible climb. Narrow lanes and sharp turns all the way up.

Overall I am very satisfied with the bike rack. It did great round trip. No damage to bikes or trailer. I recommend.
