Truck Bed Cargo

What do you usually carry in the bed of your TV? I'm trying to gauge the amount/size of stuff that folks put in there. Does anyone lay bikes down in the bed, or is there a risk of them sliding (even if secured) around and interfering with the hitch?

I would not carry bikes in the bed of a truck with the hitch installed and the 5er attached.
I carry a storage box ahead of the hitch, but below the top of the rails so the 5er will clear the box. This is for tools and grease and such. I also carry the king-pin stabilizer tripod along with the planks for the trailer tires to sit on when set-up.
That is about it.

I carry my RV spare, a closed box with supplies, a five gallon fuel can and two bikes. The bikes ride perpendicular to the direction of travel up against the rear window of the cab. They are held in place with numberous bungies and padded between themselves and between them and the truck body with old pieces of carpet. With a long bed there is plenty of room.
