HW277 bike rack?

I know that they sell one as an add on but has anyone used it? Need to know the ease of use and if any problems during use. I.e. falls off!

oh boy heres goes! If you plan on installing this on the back of your camper I would not! For one it will most likely void your frame warrenty. If its under warrenty.
And for two you may have bikes poking holes in the back of your camper. Trust me I know.
frames and bumbers are not designed for the forces put on it from a bike rack and bikes

What kinda bike rack is offered ?? A picture would help.


Like f1100turbo, I am not a big fan of trailer bumper bike racks.....a lot of problems there. You are better off with a roof rack on a SUV, or carry in the bed of a truck.

I also am not a fan of the bumper style mounts, just search here and you will out why from lots of people, this has been discussed over and over.
I would suggest something like this: Pop Up Camper Bike Rack

or a similar style that sits on top of the camper itself. When we started camping we had a pop up and we put a free standing rack on top of the camper that strapped down and hook to the bottom frame of the camper on both sides. I will say that worked well for getting the bikes back and forth but it was a bit of a pain loading and unloading, would have preferred the bed of a truck, but we did not have one at the time.

And that's why I like to ask the group first. Thanks everyone.
