Today on our 2012 Dodge Grand Caravan we'll be test fitting the RockyMounts Euro PitchFork, part number RKY1103. This bike rack is designed to use the channel within the load bar, so we'll go ahead and remove the rubber channel cover from the front crossbar. And with the channel cover removed from the front crossbar we'll slide the square nut into the channel at the head of the bike rack. We can then bring the rear mounting point to the rear crossbar bringing the clamp underneath the rear crossbar and securing it with the wing nut. We'll then go back to the head of the bike rack and tighten down the Allen bolts which will secure the bike rack to our roof rack. Now that our roof rack is secured to the vehicle we're ready to go ahead and load our bike.
With the front wheel off of our bike we'll first need to make sure that our rear wheel strap is released and out of the way. Now we'll set up our front fork into the skewer bring the rear wheel up and set on to the bike rack. We can then tighten down the skewer, and with the front fork tight we'll bring the strap back through and secure the wheel to the bike rack. And just like that our bike is loaded and we're ready to hit the road. And that completes our test fit of part no RKY1103 the RockyMounts Euro PitchFork Rooftop Bike Carrier on our 2012 Dodge Grand Caravan..
