Bike Rack Installed for travelling when hooked up to travel trailer

finished the bike rack install on my truck today, I didn't want a bumper hitch for my bikes on the back of the trailer and I felt the Aviva one cluttering an already busy area on the tongue. So I came up with this option after looking on the internet.

I am still able to lift the last panel and the tonneau cover to get at tools while hooked up, Takes a couple mins to break down if needed.

Nice job with the install. It's nice to still be able to have dry and secure stuff under the tonneau cover.
