Bike Rack for Truck

I want to mount my bikes to my truck while pulling my TT. I have a cover on the bed. I want to mount across the back of the truck bed over the cover. I have not seen anything. Any ideas?

The Retrax XR tonneau covers have grooves on the sides that support rail mounting systems from e.g. Thule and Yakima. Here's a link to the one we have. The first picture shows exactly how it works.

Note that the cover doesn't include any of the rails/crossbars. You have to buy those yourself.

Woof, I just saw the price. Either we got ours on sale or they raised the price a lot. There's a cheaper version that's plastic instead of aluminum. They may also be trying to steer you to a local dealer/installer, so if you like the product but not the price, you might try calling around.

We just bought bikes for the family this past weekend and had to look into mounting systems for us while camping. Basically, everything is scarce, so like RV prices, so too have the prices of bikes and accessories have increased. Well bike prices havent increased a lot per se, but the more budget friendly bikes are just super hard to find. Local bike shop had $2,000+ bikes all over the shop. I have a truck shell on my vehicle and I had to order the Yakima set-up from the shell Mfr in order to even get the parts.

Last weekend was not inexpensive :(

I installed an aftermarket receiver on the front of my truck. Then put a bike rack into it.
