Bike Racks?

Can anyone recommend a good bike rack (for 2 bikes) to use while pulling my Airstream? My pickup has a lid so I cannot stand them up in the bed. I am afraid to put them on a hitch stand because my trailer turns in so close to the back when I turn.

Airstream is now selling a nice rack for the back of an Airstream. It's not cheap, but a good design. There is a thread discussing it here.

Yakima and Thule make racks for the back of a pickup bed or the top of your topper.

We put a front hitch mount on the truck and a rack on that. Also helpful to maneuver the AS into tight places
