Bike lbRack

Hey all, running a Rockwood 2109s, It has a ladder I believe is rated for 250 lbs. Does anyone have experience with a ladder mounted bike rack, good or bad.

Please dont hang your bike on the ladder. That is a bad Idea. Yea other people do it but if they were jumping off a bridge....dang I sound like my mother.

Is there a reason why or is it just because.

The weight limit is to keep fat guys like me off of it. If you throw 50 lbs of bikes on there bouncing down the road you will work everything loose.
I dont know where you are but most every town has a welding shop. Go visit them. I bet for a few hundred bucks they can custom fab a bike rack to fit your needs.

Thatís what I did on my old travel trailer. You know everybody puts a bike rack on those flimsy bumpers but I had a hitch shop weld a 2 inch receiver to the frame so I could put my bike rack on it.
