Towing bikes

We are about to purchase a 27'FB and are debating the best way to tow our bikes; on the top of our truck or behind the Airstream. We would appreciate any suggestions. Stan

Are we talking bicycles or Harley’s? Well, I guess it really doesn’t matter to answer your question. Airstream bumpers are not designed to have any additional weight put on them. Bad things tend to happen – like rear end separation. I would recommend putting them on your truck, and with that recommendation, I sincerely hope they are bicycles and not Harley’s…

Howdy Neighbor,

Click on my user name and select "view public profile". You will see how I carry the bikes. When we get really serious about taking our toys, we put two Hobie kayaks on the roof rack.

The picture was taken on the road above the ghost town of St. Elmo, west of Buena Vista.

Regards,

Ken

You could mount a hitch to the front of the truck and put a bike rack there as I do
