These people make a good rack that mounts in front of your trailer http://www.arvika.ca/index.php/us/

But can you really open the front bunk on a Roo with the rack installed. My bunk open has only 2"" of clearance, if that, from my propane covers. Doing my research now, and would be happy putting 2 of my 4 bikes on a rack. So much extra set up and break down as it is.

Summer2go, I don't have a front slide out so the rack and the bikes can stay in place as long as I want them to. I don't think the rack that I have would work for you. You could send the company, Arvika, a note to see if they have something that would.

Ladder Bike Rack
Attached Surco ( 75 pound cap.) bike rack to ladder on back of camper and loaded 2 coaster bikes to rack. Haven't been on road since I installed but it seems like it will work. Secured bikes to ladder with racket straps as safety measure and to reduce amount of weight on rack. Used bungee cords to keep bikes from bouncing around. Had to mount rack higher on ladder than I wanted to keep tail light on camper clear.


Caution: some bike ladder racks only have weight capacity of 50 lbs. Surco has largest capacity.

Beware of ladder rack bike carriers; we install one and ladder starting coming loose from camper. We removed bike carrier and tighten screws holding ladder to camper. Good thing we tried first on short trip.
