I needed to alter the mount for the bike rack to the cross member that goes from the corner to the A frame on the HW296. It is only channel steel and needs a board inside the channel to add a bit of stability. This is the same cross memebr that your end bunk support poles atach to I believe.
The HW296 is a bit higher than my previous pop up and you need to fully extend the ProRack tubes to ensure that the bike cranks do not hit the roof corner.
The hitch does not interfere. As you know the hitch mounts to the A frame. The bike rack is mounded to the cross member.
It still works well.
