Here are all the pictures I have.

first picture is all the way up before I made new poles.

second picture is with new poles showing tie down method.

third picture is close-up of straps with single ratchet strap laced through all bikes.

Note that on the far side of picture two I have a Toy-Lock attached to the top tube of the rack so that I can lock all the bikes together.

After much delay from Amazon, the ProRac finally arrived and spent this morning installing it.

There is still some good length left on the poles after using the tallest hole, so I may just drill a new sets of holes. But after a dry run with it set to the tallest hole, I think it should be just fine.

Here are two pictures of my dry run and my bike:

Thanks 2gwright for posting. I see there the additional tie-down will be required; those poles at that height tend to have some sway to them. I am going to see how these existing top setting will work out; but may end up drilling a new set of holes further down to give that additional length. Not too far however, but I believe there is some room to drill and not compromise the stability. We'll see. Thanks again for sharing!

Now you have your camper and your bike. Come on over to Georgia as we have some incredible trails to ride.

I think the ratchet strap is at least 16' long and I'm at the very end.

10-4. We don't get over to GA much however; we usually stick to a 3-hour radius. We may do a South GA one in October however. What part of GA are you in? I am in South Mississippi.

I am not sure mine reaches that high. I wonder if they changed the design to accommodate the HW's.

I definitely need new pipes for mine.

Vin.
