Bike rack rear bumper

I want to put a bike rack on the back bumper. Most car bike racks have top strap to help support the rack during travel. I have not taken the interior skin off in any of the trailer, so I donít know if there is a frame piece supporting the windows in the back. I have to imagine that there has to be something supporting the windows. We have a 85 Sovereign 25í. Your comments are requested
In my AIRSTREAM, I'm at home!

Our bike rack does not require a strap...it's a yakima. Also, none of the other hitch bike carriers I've owned have required one either.

You realize this thread is about a year old?

Here is a recent thread on a rear hitch for bikes, and the links in Post #3 and in various other posts are worth a read IMO:


Also these "bike rack" search results will reveal a variety of posts in diverse sub-forums within AirForums.com:


Good luck,
