I don't know if they ultra light frames but bunch of small TT at camping world with the fold down rack and several small 5ers with them also. Matter a fact I didn't see one in 13k range that had one. Small Cougar 5th wheel had the slide in and out one that slides to the end frame rails.

I was under the impression that they could be order though a dealer as a dealer installed option and no my dealer deal doesn't deal direct with Lippert. I gave my a call dealer and looking into it.

Thanks.
I will try and find out which FR products still have this as a OEM option.

The ones at CW were not FR but had Indian sounding name.

What I didn't like about the slide one is the tire slide out with it and 2.5 - 3 feet from the back of the 5er. Seems like lot weight to hang that far way from back 5er when you can load the platform with another 400 lbs.

Here is another option - a replacement bumper and mounting system.

'Attractive, rustproof all-aluminum construction looks great and carries weight
Strong, frame-mounted bumper with full 1,000 pound cargo carrying capacity'

I don't know if I would 1000 lbs on it but couple hundred bikes would work..

That also looks quite interesting. Looking at that photo of the 4 bikes hanging out a mile from the bumper makes me cringe though. I wonder how the strap iron welded up I beams would handle that extra moment arm flex at the axle attachment points.

Just think you load up Road King 900lbs Harley on you back bumper and head down the road. Who needs a stinken toy hauler!!! Just kidding I won't attempt that either. Just think of what that would do to your pin weight. Just have 300lbs sloshing around in grey tank that behind wheels and just front of the rear bumper is bad enough. We had to do that couple months ago with ground water got high and the closed down the dump site at the camp grounds.

I came out of a fuel station on US 29 in VA last weekend, divided highway with a median, the median crossing has such a dip my trailer spare on the bumper dragged and actually bent the wingnut holding the tire on, fortunately it also has a lugnut holding it on or my spare would have fallen off, if bikes were back there they would have been destroyed.

One of the Chaparral-Lite fifth wheels we were looking at (at Giant Recreation World in Winter Garden FL), before we settled on the Rockwood from another dealer, had a flip-down 4-bike rack (which could also be used for other storage). From what I remember it looked like it mounted directly to the chassis, not to the bumper.

Link to another one with the same bike rack here: -

just look at the 3rd and 4th photos.
