We plan to bring Bikes with us as well. I'm going to pick up some used Mountain bikes (my Pugeot street bike is not a good trail bike). If they get swiped I won't be out a huge sum. I'm running a Suburban so there was some issue with how to transport. I HATE bikes hanging on the front bumper blocking head lights. The above is a issue with on the back of the Camper. So in the coach or on the roof of the tow vehicle seemed to be the next best. Roof made the most sense. If we want to transport the bikes we have a way to do it.

I just picked up a Used Safari rack. It's a Kargo Master Serengeti. I have some bike mounts from a roof rack I have that is too narrow to fit the Burb but will work on that rack. With my drop tail gate it's no problem to load. I also wanted the rack to transport a Honda Generator. Just don't want anything full of or reaking of Gas in the truck or the coach.

Opps This is 59 Toaster on Chili's acct. Hahaha that's what I get for using her computer instead of mine. didn't even think to check to see if it was logged in LOL.

Ahh, Chili Pepper, we hardly knew ye....

I haven't come up with a suitable moniker for my sanguine Swede. But her favorite joke is about Swedish hot sauce -- mix flour and water; if it's too hot, use less flour. Seems just the opposite of "Chili Pepper." (I won't ask.... )

But someone who gets down and dirty with your frame-off adventure deserves a lot of credit.

Yes, I was going for the elusive and mysterious thing. Hard to do when 59Toaster posts under my account.

Hmmm... sounds like gravy to me, lol, red eye gravy.

Thank you, thank you. It was a lot easier than dropping an engine in a Chevy truck!

I also have been looking at folding bikes. I'm not sure that is the best solution for me. During my surfing I ran across a bike rack that has a sleeve base that fits over a 2" drawbar. It looks like it could be used behind a tow and mount bikes between the tow vehicle and the trailer. Has anyone any experience with these racks?

pepper,
I have used them but not with a WDH, I don't know how they would affect the use of that type of hitch. They usually require an extended draw bar. The biggest two draw backs for us were they blocked the access to the rear of the vehicle, and the added weight was an issue when we were fully loaded.(towing a large popup)

I thought I did the Chevy by myself. It was the Supra that you dropped the engine in.
