Fiamma bike rack on a '05 Classic 25

Anyone have any experience installing a Fiamma bike rack on a Classic?
They sell this rack with an additional bracket, due to sliding rear bumper storage? Thanks!

I looked into a Fiamma bike rack for my Classic but couldn't find any videos to show how its installed nor did I get my response from Airstream. I didn't have a warm fuzzy about just ordering the rack so I went with the Arvika system that bolts onto the tongue and the bikes rest over the propane tanks. Yes, a little more weight on the hitch but its just an hour to install and no holes drilled into the shell. It does cost a little more than the Fiamma.

Thanks Kelvin. I have used the video to install a Fiamma on a 2012 Flying Cloud 20. It went well and has worked great.
I have seen an image online of an installation on a Classic. Can see where the brackets are off-set and would not interfere with the slideout action of the bumper storage drawer.
Will check out the Arvika system.

I just put one on. The only problem is attaching the lower mounts. Do not set the width bolts in you will have to drill new holes for all of them. Find the frame support that comes out of the trailer under the plastic on each side if it is short as in the 2002 drill down using a right angle drill. Then drill a hole in the mounting bracket and push a bolt up from the bottom. Once you have a bracket on each side you can set the frame width. Then attach the upper brackets to the frame by drilling a hole for the upper bracket bolt. Now we can complete the lower bracket mounting. I drilled two pilot holes into the bumper support that curves around under the plastic then tapped threads for two 5/16 bolts in the steel frame. Tightened them down and the lower bracket was secure. Now drill new width holes in the sliding frames and install those bolts and you are done. Both my local dealer and Airstream were not much help. I LOOKED AT THE BUMPER of a classic at the dealer that had the frame coming out much further than mine and those would have to be drilled and tapped to attached the inner bolt
