Bike rack for Rockwood 2514g

We purchased a Rockwood 2514g this spring, and we are looking for a bike rack. I installed a receiver hitch on our old camper and just used a receiver style bike rack, but I don't think the bumper on this one will handle it.

What are people using for bike racks on these units? With the fiberglass roof I hesitate to put a roof mounted unit on it. I looked around on their website and couldn't find much.

Any info would be appreciated! Thanks!

We haven't gotten one yet either on ours but after research I have decided I am going with the Pro Rac model. I was considering doing the roof mount one but as we add bikes with more kids, just didn't want the hassle of getting them all the way up there. With the Pro Rac it should be easier to get them on from the front and this way the wife can help get them on and off. Only draw back is having to remove the front wheel on the Pro Rac. But the but with this one you don't have to drill into your roof.

One like this? - http://www.prorac.com/tenttrailerpro.php

Dumb question, but where do the front tires go? I assume in the TV, but didn't know if I was missing something, the pics aren't that great.

Yes, the front tires would go in the TV. Although I think they sell some kind of attachment that you can just attach the wheels to the bike.

This is the cheapest place I have found and where I am going to order from. Probally not this year as the season is almost over but my son will be riding a two wheel bike by next year so it will be a must buy then. Although I have told my wife a nice easy solution to the bike rack would be a new Silervarado

I have the Pro Rack Bike option as well. It works great and is an excellent way to transport your bike on the pop up.
