If I mentioned either of these options I'm pretty sure she is going to kill me in the mean time I do really need to figure out a why to at least haul the bikes the kids little bike can ride in the camper but two adult ones I'm not sure about.

Shane, do you have any pictures from the back? How far the receiver finishes from the camper? I am a sheet metal worker so this something I can probably tackle if I were comfortable after warranty expires. Did you just spice your campers trailer harnass for second trailer lights?

I have carried 2 adult bikes, 1 child bike, 1 plastic trike and 1 stroller inside on our dinette. I lay each on their side with waterproof sheets between each layer. I've never had as much as a scuff on any of them and never a drop of mess on the dinette itself.

The bikes are easiest to maneuver around if you stand them on their back wheel and control them via the handlebars. Last thing in and first thing out.

I want a pinbox mount, just haven't had time to hit my father-in-law up to do it yet.

Take pics of the process and post them. It'll be good to have something to show my father-in-law.

And your point???

She/he specifically asked about bicycles in the part that I quoted.

My point is that the bumper is not beefy enough and will not hold a hitch for golf cart or bike racks..... trying to envision a golf cart inside the unit....



Blessings to you my friend.....

I'm confused what you're trying to say to me- I'm not talking about bumpers or golf carts.

Did you read the part I quoted? It speaks to *BICYCLES* inside of the camper.

If you have comments for the OP, it doesn't help to quote or poke at my posts.
