This is NOT aftermarket installable by any dealer, member, or retailer.

It must be available as a factory installed option ONLY. Your VIN MUST show it as being factory installed for Lippert to ship to a non OEM location.

I am trying to find out if ANY Forest River Product STILL advertises it as an option. They used to but I seem to remember that a large number of warranty problems resulted in it being dropped.


Standby as my source has not gotten back to me regarding this item as an available option.

I have the one rack installed on my trailer labeled as a bike carrier but it is just a pivoting cargo carrier.

I actually just came back in from putting a 2" receiver on the rear for a bike carrier.

Then why do they have a shopping cart option on the page? UPS ground to my address is only 14.39 - Not bad.

Look at the aftermarket tab on the page shown here:

Tailgate® Storage Systems

I quoted it when you posted in another thread but you must not have read it.

If you do decide to order it; let me know if they will ship to you.

Customer service needs some information and on way out to storage to get the needed info......

I understand that the 'Discount Codes" block is just for dealers.
