i had Support-Rack's website saved but couldn't find it and couldn't remember the name.
they were also a Quebec company, like Toppoprails(Arvika) and prices were slightly cheaper than Arvika.
they also had a great setup for 5th wheels.

problem is that both companies' products are almost non-existent in the U.S.
i still can't figure out why Yakima or Thule hasn't come up with similar rack systems. especially Thule, who had a whole line of Smart RV mounts and accessories.
you used to be able to get them with Kodiak/Cub hybrids, a few years ago, as an option.

Depending on your tow vehicle, you can get a front mounted receiver to mount bike racks/cargo carriers, etc. I installed one on both my tow vehicles with no problems.

Doesn't that make hard to open the hood?

No, it works just like a receiver in the back. The cargo is in front of the vehicle, but low enough not to obstruct vision.

Difficult to put a cover over the bikes if it's on the front of the TV. Headlights don't like covers. Also interferes with Daytime Running Lights, if required where you live.

Or, you can store them inside.

My bike carrier mod for a Roo 233s (should work on other models)

I did this to my 233S, and it works great!

I bought an extended hitch bar for my bike rack that went on my pop up last year. I love the rack and am trying to figure out how to use it with a Roo. The rack slides onto the hitch, and allowed me to carry the bikes on the car, and still hitch the camper. I have been told that I can't use this long hitch with the WD hitch for the new Roo that I ordered. Is there another way I can still use the Holywood rack with a Roo? I would look at an a frame to put the bikes on the front of the Roo. I would have to re-adapt the mount for the rack, it just doesn't look that solid. Should I worry about the weight that is added to the tongue? The rack carries 3 adult bikes.

Has anyone used a double receiver hitch?
I'll be picking up my trailer in a few weeks and trying to figure out how best to set up to carry two bikes.
The double receiver seems to be a simple solution, what am I missing? Don't think I have read where anyone is using this approach.
Thanks
