New to the Airforum - was turned on to this by a friend who just bought an AS. Regarding bikes, I actually had a tow hitch welded to the back of my 25'FB - so it is connected to the frame - not just the bumper. I have a bike rack that fits into the hitch and it holds 4 bikes. So far, so good.

Hi, I have a similar set up, except I don't have an FB unit.

I carry both a propane powered Yamaha 1000 generator when boondocking:

Any carry 3-4 bikes on the roof of the burb with Yakima's King Cobra mounts:

Though you can camp in an Airstream in the winter, make sure you're LP tanks are full. Airstreams do have insulation, but as any streamer that has a newer one can tell you, they are not exactly air tight, meaning your furnace will run regularly. If that is not an issue, then, sure, the heat from the furnace should keep the pipes from freezing, and the tanks are duct heated from the furnace.

You might consider trying to fit the bike rack between the front of the Airstream and the propane tanks. Just make sure the rack can be removed easily to service your batteries. This would eliminate any added weight to the rear bumper issues. You might have to turn the bikes in opposite directions and remove the front tires so the handle-bars could be turned, but they might fit if it is just two bikes.
