I've looked thru the archives on bike racks. some good info there. But, I'm wondering if anyone has additional info. I have a Jayco greyhawk with a back bumper. The spare tire is mounted on the bumper. I have a 2" hitch. Will the spare be in the way of either a bumper mounted or a hitch mounted bike rack?

We are trying to get the most bikes we can on the RV as we love riding them.

Also any good companies.

Thanks so much,
kama and the whole 9 of us.

Just make sure you look at how your bumper is welded and the guage of metal. With a bike rack on the back flappin around the torque could start to warp the bumper. Not all bumpers are made the same by RV manufactures

Kama, welcome to our website and forum. Glad to have you join us here and we look forward to reading of your adventures & experiences. Take the recommendations given; you may even want to have a good welding shop look over the rig and make you up a system that will last and not damage the bikes or the trailer. Good luck & enjoy!

Kama, we use a "ladder mounted" rack we purchased at a local RV store; the rack slips onto one fo the steps on the ladder, and has two "saddles" the bikes lay in, and then uses strapping material to hold them to the ladder. One very recent caution; we had the bikes strapped on, and the winds were strong enough to pull one of the ladder mounts out of the TT and bend the ladder..but the rack held the bikes o n jsut fine. Now I have to straighten the ladder..Oh Well.
Enjoy the ride, wear a helmet!
