New Here - From Tent to Tent Camper

Enjoying our 2010 FR Rockwood 1940LTD in Kansas and Missouri. Would like suggestions for carrying bikes without damaging roof of camper or spending a fortune to put them on the roof of the TV.

Can't help you with your bike question but you might post down in the pop up section. Welcome. Enjoy the new trailer!

For carrying the bikes - your options really are:
1) Install a roof rack on the TV (yes, frightfully expensive)
2) Install a roof rack on the pop-up camper (but still, you should be using a brand name rack and spending a fortune)
3) Installing a rack above the tongue - there have been some pretty neat solutions fabricated here.
4) Hanging a rack from the back of the TV - still expensive as you should use a good brand, but less expensive than a roof rack. I used the Thule Raceway 3 with my Durango and Coleman popup and carried 3 bikes with it.
