That is what I am doing. The 18" platform next to the truck folds up and is very light weight.
Yakima SPROCKETROCKET...excellent choice.

I carry four bikes on the roof of my GMC Yukon ... works perfectly for us.

Welcome! Good luck on your quest. We bought our first AS back in Nov. spent the winter working on it and can't wait to take it out on it's first trip this summer! Our only problem with roof mounted is height. Our Sequioa sits very high off the ground and for us it would make it very tough to lift and bring them down so we're looking at "lower" options including putting them inside the AS if necessary. If it were a different truck it might be a bit easier to reach-although I do see a nice step stool in asflycasters set up!

I also carry our bikes on the front of the MH. Look here for some photos.

We want to keep the bikes inside too. Any trouble with them moving around -or do you stabilize with more than a sheet? Wondering about bracing them somehow on the bed.

When I had the excursion, once the wheel chair was loaded in the rear there was no room at all so the kids bikes had to go inside the AS, I laid a tarp down big enough to go side to side, from the couch to the dinet with an edge far enough up the side to keep them from touching the couch and walls, if laid properly they never moved. Once arrived they was the first thing out and then pulled on the far edge of tarp to roll it towards the door so any dirt or anything went out the door.
Then I bought my 2011 F250 and now they ride in the bed of the truck.

putting them on a front mounted reciever is really the best option. The only problem it causes is you want to remember not to get too close to anything.
Yes you can carry 4 bikes there.

We've carried ours on the front of our tow vehicle with no problem for 15 years+.

First with a Safari Minivan, then a GMC Sierra 1500 pickup, and now on a
Sierra 2500HD pickup. It has always worked well for us.

On the present vehicle, I cut down the height of the bike rack a little because the front mounted hitch on the truck was higher than on our last truck and the bikes sat up higher than I liked.

Now I can just see the seats/ bars barely above the line of the hood. Just enough to know that the bikes are still there!

Our Airstream came (used) with a rear frame mounted hitch, however I removed it as I was a bit concerned about the effect of the bikes bouncing at the back of the trailer - also when up in front, if they should fall off, it will be me that runs over them not some other poor bloke!
