Oh they "could" do it but they would have to remove the rear cap to do so and I'm pretty sure that wouldn't be cost effective.
For some or most dealers they may say "no go".
Sorry

Since I only have one bike I also move the back tire over the center cushion area and have velcro fastened to the plywood. I velcro the back tire in place also. I have hauled the bike several thousand miles and it hasn't move at all. It also keeps it out of the weather. It is a little bit of a pain getting in and out of the trailer... but it is very secure, and not tempting for theft. If we are only stopping for the night DW and I eat in the chairs and leave the bike mounted.
Seems to be the simplest method. I'm not sure why people don't just put them inside their trailers instead of racking their brain and spending good money to solve this "problem".

We lay ours on their sides with waterproof sheets between them. I'd like to keep them out of the camper just to free up the space inside for quick overnight stops (we lose our entire table due to it).

Bumper Rack

As I see it, the rear bumper rack is the most cost effective, but the weight is the issue. We carry two bikes, both are fairly light weights, especially one that is all aluminum. Best I can figure, with the rack and two bikes, sixtes pounds? Best Guess without weighing, which I plan to do:

Looks good. I might have to stick them inside for our next camping trip in April, the back of the truck will most likely have a golf cart in it this go around. Then think nabout the over the tank setup for future trips.

Is that just a piece of 3/4" plywood cut to size?
