I have read alot of issues with putting a bike rack on the rear of a 5th wheel due to the leverage factor.
I have a 2011 Sabre RETS-6 with the factory rear cargo/bike carrier, only problem is our bikes do not fit on the rack.
I have plans on modifying the existing mounting brackets to be able to use a receiver style bike rack that will hold our bikes. According to the dealer the factory rack has a weight capacity of 400#.
The rack I want to use with the bikes mounted weights 195#, I also plan on coming up with a way to keep the rack from bouncing up and down when traveling, thinking I can use ratchet straps and tie the ends back to the end of the frame (not sure about this yet).
Anyone have the factory rack? Any modifications made? Just wondering if anyone has tried anything like this or an I asking for more trouble than worth?
Sorry for rattling on just dropped oldest off at airport to report for Marine combat training and waiting on him to call and let his proud but nevous parents know he has arrived.
