I just put the fork mounts on the plywood under the seat of our dinette booth.

Bike rack

I had a thought. Wow! Could you cut slots in the bottom platform of the rack and install (weld) trim around these slots that would allow the tire to go through the bottom far enough to be stable. The slot for the front tire could be at a angle to keep handlebars from hitting the rear of the trailer. Pull straps to secure bike from rocking back and forth using each other for support. When not in use there would not be anything to keep it from folding up.

Interesting idea. It would be less expensive to just bolt some 2x4s or wooden L shapes to the platform and use eye bolts to secure the bikes. Not as fancy but I'd have to hire a fabricator to do what your suggesting. For the more talented it might be an easy mod.

Two solutions I found in other threads so far:

1) Install fork mounts and tie strap the bike. Downside here is that you have to remove the front wheel from your bikes every time you load.

2) Buy the Stromberg ultra bike rack (https://www.campingworld.com/strombe...ack-58854.html) but I think you cannot fold up the travel rack anymore.

Does anyone know a better solution? I'd love to have something like the Stromberg bike rack but foldable so I can still fold up the travel rack easy.

Thank you!!
We bought this from Walmart https://www.walmart.com/ip/Two-Bike-...SABEgIeQfD_BwE

Attached it to the platform with 2" U-bolts around the bottom of the stand and through the mesh on the platform. Stand the bikes up in the rack for stability. Tied the front wheels to the Walmart bike rack with Gear-Ties, tied the back wheels through the mesh platform with Gear-ties. Our bikes rode 1,000 miles each way to and from Texas this winter with no problems. Easy enough to un-bolt the u-bolts and remove the rack when you complete your trip so that the platform can be folded back up for storage.

Bike rack

He already has the folding platform. Surely someone down the street or in the shop at work or heck maybe that guy that leaves early every morning with the blue box on the back of his dually at the campground might help out so he can say he created a cool bike rack.ok maybe not this month but maybe sometime this year.

To close off this thread from my side: I did buy the Stromberg bike rack but I'm not able to fold up the travel rack anymore. This was expected and as we always travel with the bikes is okay. For the winter storage I will most likely remove the bike rack and fold up the travel rack.

Thanks again for so much so helpful advice!! Happy Camping!
