Put a 2" receiver on front of truck. Buy from Curt, exact fit, heavy duty and simple to install. Bike carrying problems solved.

We carry five bikes with us on all of our trips. All five usually go in the camper.

We also have the gear from Yakima to carry on the roof of our SUV, but usually have a top box up there instead of the bikes.

Avrika makes a rack for the tongue of your trailer. Its pricey but reportedly very good.
