Anybody tried Yakima BedHead Truck Bed Mount?

I am hoping to mount two bikes sideways between my rear window and my Reese Elite 18K fifth wheel hitch. It looks to me like two Yakima BedHead Truck Bed Mounts would let me do that. Has anyone done that?

We have used and been pleased with Yakima products. Not familiar with this one. We have a Nissan Frontier with the track system. Bought Rocky Mounts fork mounts that fit into the track system. You may want to check their site and compare options.

I found this on Flikr. I don't see why they wouldn't work well for you. Looks like they work for this guy.

will trailer hit bikes

The Flickr picture is exactly what I am hoping to do, but with a 5th wheel trailer hitched on the 6.5'bed. I am concerned that in tight turns the trailer and bikes will interact.

The rounded nose of the crusader will certainly help you in your quest

First question is do you have a automatic sliding hitch or a standard fixed fifth will hitch?
My guess with a sliding hitch you'll have room. I carry my 7K Generator in this location.

Also look at the orientation of the kingpin Jaw release handle. If it points forward, it may come in contact with the bikes during a turn, make sure it points towards the rear of your pickup bed.

Just reread your OP. With the Reese hitch being a manual slide, it might be a little tight during turns
