So far, itís been from Lake Huron down to the Gulf. Drove through wind, rain, and snow through mountains. The Blue Ox SwayPro, weight distribution setup has been very good for hauling it.

April 12th picking up our first TT. Installed the WDH in the parking lot and towed it home about a 51 mile drive. It has been quite the learning experience and journey and it's barely just begun.

It'll cost ya, but you could add rack rails to the top of the PUP and bike carriers to that. Or haul other stuff on the rack.

This is the one we had on our pop-up.

Pro Rac Systems Inc. Tent Trailer 4 - Bike Carrier https://www.amazon.com/dp/B000V2KN22..._dLoYCb0SZ59BT

We had the expansion kit as well. It would hold 6 bikes. The only thing I didn't like was that the tires made the top of the camper dirty. Otherwise, it was perfect.

I'd have folks litterally running up to me when I was entering the campground asking where I'd purchased, make/model, etc.

The rack mounts to the front frame. There are no holes that need to be drilled for the Pro-Rac (into anything). The front piece simply clamps onto the A-Frame on the front of the camper in front of the Propane tank. The rails are mounted to poles that move up and down to get your bed out.

When you're ready to go all you do is raise the rail, pop in the cotter pin to secure it, then use the quick release skewers to mount the fork. The back tires will rest of the top of the camper. We would always put the tires inside the camper on top of the dinette (between the dinette and the bed when it is collapsed). Seemed like the perfect place to transport those wheels as it is only a few inches high but nice and wide.

It is a very good design and in my opinion, well worth the money. Do some shopping around.. I'm seeing it at Walmart for $357 now.

Thx 007...... That $357 usd translates into $480 Canadian. Still think it's a good deal lol? I Cannot, and sure as hell will not spend $500 on a bike rack! Granted, prob the best one for a popup. Tough call.....I just hate messing around with my hatch mounted one. You wanna play, you gotta pay I guess. Thx everyone!

Holy crap.
How is that not at double the tow capacity?

How does it drive? Probably "don't know it's back there"....? ;-)

I am curious on the numbers, if you happen to know them.
