Bikes inside TT

Would it be possible to place two bikes (after taking wheels off) in a 16 RB Caravel? I was wondering if we put blankets down on the bed and wrapped them good if this would be a problem. I don't even know if this is possible as I do not have an AS yet, but just thinking about this possibility.


I will be getting E-Bikes which are two heavy for the rack. About 50lbs each.



Anyway, just wondering if this can be done and if anyone has done this in a 16 foot TT.



Thanks for any responses!

Hi Dwain, There have been many owners stowing their bikes inside their trailers. I did this with my 16 foot Camplite by securing the bike with bungees in several different directions so it wouldn't move. This is ideal to keep the added weight over the axle as well.

You can also make a removable mount that would allow you to mount the front fork to one of the those quick release units. I would still use bungees to keep it from tipping over and damaging things or the bike.

The quick release mount could be permanently attached to the wood work in the trailer if you were so inclined and as a solid way to transport the bikes.

Try the search tool and you should see some threads on the topic.

Just use some moving blankets and put the on the folded dinette. Stack the dinette cushions on the bed.

We found it to be kind of a pain especially if you’re traveling to get somewhere and moving every day. We ended up getting folding ebikes (RAD mini) that fit in a 50 gallon Hefty tub and are stored in the back of our truck under the cap. Keeps them safer too as they’re not outside while we’re sleeping or away from the trailer.

IN my '07 20' Safari I made these interlocking pieces that fit across the floor, fitting into a recess of the cabinet. It couldn't move in any direction.

this bike stand works for us

We occasionally carry 2 bikes in our 25 Flying cloud with this rack. We put this bike in facing opposite directions and bungee together. Also put yoga pad between the bike and the cushion. We bought it in June 2019 for $42.
