seriously advise you to have a receiver welded and braced to the Flagstaff's frame cause the bumper is just for carrying a sewer hose.
It was a Dutchmen Lite, though it was stick and tin. The frame is almost identical to the Flagstaff, but the running gear is different. The bumper and frame attachment points look identical too. I'll take it to a trailer shop and have it looked at before I put any load on it just to make sure.

I think its rediculous that the welds, frames, bumpers or whatever are too weak for a couple if bikes. Its camping i thought. Bikes are a part of that often. Sheesh. Rediculous. Oh but lets have fancy countertops, glass enclosed shower stalls, electric fireplaces (lol), carved wood trim, etc etc. Just dont throw a couple of bikes on the back. Lmao!!!!!
Unacceptable.

I second that comment above

And dont forget about Blue Tooth entertainment systems. Last summer my smart phone and camper audio system must have had a conversation I knew nothing about because while I was talking on my phone it all of a sudden started coming through my audio speakers, outside and inside of the camper. Good thing it was a wholesome conversation cause everyone around our sight heard the conversation until the DW brought my attention to the outside speakers beign on

I have never done anything with Blue Tooth in my life so It took me awhile to figure out what was going on. I thought I had entered the Twlight Zone for a while

We want a bike rack too. Actually we have the tray and bumper mount hitch but are afraid to use them :P Last campout we saw a good number of folks with bike racks that extend up in front of their campers ~ primarily on fifth wheels but when we look on the website they make them for TT also. It was a company in Canada. We called them because there are no prices on the website but I am not aware of a phone call back. If we find out they're copacetic, we'll post it.

Found this post on Woodalls that looks interesting.....

The Canadian company with the tongue mount bike rake is ARVIKA. The are located in Quebec.
Here is their brochure www.arvika.ca/pdf/brochure/brochure2012.pdf
(English is in red text)

They make a 2, 3, and 4 bike tongue mount bike rack. (The 4 bike option is really their 3 bike rack with an extension kit called "Kit-4")

We were looking at these but decided against it in the end because of the added tongue weight with 4 bikes.
