Put some rollers under the rear wheels and you have trainers for poor weather days.

I did something very similar, but a bit different. My wife doesn't ride a bike and our fifth wheel has a table instead of a dinette so I mounted the bike behind the kitchen island. When the slides come in from both sides, it is a perfect place for the bike.

Please see the following discussion:

bike rack on rear bumper?

My only comment is you might want to throw a blanket between the tires and table top- just to give it a tiny bit of extra protection.
Thanks, I was thinking of using either card board or a rug that we use on the floor of the camper. The table can always be wiped off to disinfect.

Not yet, I was thinking of maybe adding some "O" hooks and using some budgie cords to keep the rear wheels from skipping around.

Thanks, I am a little bit of a bike snob. Also, keeping them inside keeps the rain and bugs off of them during transport.

We just bought a TT with a rack in the back. Why can't we put the bikes there?

Who said you could not?
If you got a rack on the bumper use it.

Are the seat bottom secured to anything when the bike are mounted? Would a big bump bounce the plywood out of position and allow the bikes to start dancing around?

The original poster said he had read many threads about not mounting anything to the back bumper, which was why I asked.

I am assuming ours is factory installed and we bought it new and it already came with.
