burch42 has a nice setup. You can do the same thing with Yakima parts but typically Yakima will be a bit more pricey than Thule. Either way, you need enough space on the top surface of the bed walls to be able to mount the towers for the crossbars.

I was going to invest in the Yakima mounts because I have some older Yakima bike racks that I used with our previous Coleman popup, but I was able to fit our cheap bicycles in the back of the truck. The only negative to my cheaper method is that I can't use the tonneau cover to keep things dry. So far, we haven't had to travel in pouring rain so it works for us.

I have the Yakima version of Burch42 set up. Only I used generic bike trays.

We used 1" square tubing, bought a couple front wheel mounts off of Amazon . The bikes hang from the rear door while in transit. Front wheels removed and stowed in cargo bay.

Two 7/16 head bolts and the bar can be removed once we set up camp.

Currently at Holiday Shores in Bradenton FLA. Travelled from Michigan, bikes very secure the whole trip.

This looks promising and something I can do pretty easy it looks like.
