I didn't like the fold down rack that came with the 34tbok as its hard to fit four bikes on without them rubbing each others paint and the back of the trailer. I took the rack off and had a welder friend fab up a hitch mount so I could put a Swagman hitch carrier. The other benefit is that if we want to take the bikes with the TV and go somewhere, we can.

Forgot to add that we are going to add a receiver tube to the top of the bracket so I can put the bike rack on sideways for storage when we don't need it. Once that is done, I'll get it powder coated.

I bought a " 'PRO Series " rear rack then added a Yakima 2 bike rack to it. Well have 3 trips, losing my $ 600.00 Trek bike, broken strapps on the bike rack, broken welds on the rack it self I narrowed it down that the so called " Pro Series " rack is way to flimsy to haul a cooler, some firewood and 2 bikes. I have looked at the newer fold down racks but I am not sure if they are big enough. I think I am going to start from scratch and have one built. I have decided since my rear bumper has qty 2 - 2" male tubes sticking out of it I want to make it slide on those with removable pins, and be somewhere around 3'-4' deep by 6' long with a steel mesh floor. I want it to be square steel tube, and make 4 slots for the bike tires to set in and have a removable tube that extends up 4" so I can strap the bikes too thus them setting on the rack vs hanging from a bike rack. I also want to haul wood on this and also a small refigerator too. I think I am done with the bike racks that the hang them in mid air, I have heard ,seen, and experienced enough. If you have any idea or pics of your own back rack please post as I would like to see what you guys have build or bought which will help me design mine.
Go to Columbus RV . com, ( i have a columbus ) they have a fold down rack that holds 450 lbs. I put two bikes ours and should hold four. You might look at a ladder rack I used one on our Durango worked great held two bikes.
