Video Transcript for Stromberg Carlson Bike Bunk Trailer-Mounted Bike Rack Carrier Review

Hi there, adventurers. Today, we're going to be taking a look at Stromberg Carlson's Bike Bunk. The Bike Bunk is a two-inch hitch receiver that mounts to the front of your A-frame trailer. This allows you to place your bike rack in it so you can bring your bikes along with you. Your camper is going to go into the receiver on your hitch at the back of your vehicle, so you've got no place to put your bike rack, but now you do, right on your trailer. This is going to be ideal if you want to keep an eye on your bikes because you can mount them in the front of your trailer.Some other options you have is a hitch here at the back of your trailer.

But if you have it at the back, you often can't see your bikes so you don't know if maybe one of them fell off if you didn't have it strapped down properly until you get to your next location. Other issues you might run into is your trailer might be too low to put a receiver here at the back. My popup here, I attempted to put one at the back, but the clearance was just so low. I wasn't able to, so my only option is going to be to have one here in the front.It's unique design that is wide enough and tall enough to go over top of your propane tanks at the front of your trailer. It'll also clear most other things that you might have up here as well.

If you don't have propane tanks, such as a toolbox or battery box. The unique shape of our arms allows you to install it at various locations at the front of your trailer. The arms can pivot inside of your bracket assemblies to allow them to pivot out to get the appropriate cross distance that you'll need for your top bar here.This unique design allows it to be custom fit for your trailer since you can place it further up and down your frame rail, avoiding the objects that are already on your trailer as you see necessary. The only thing you need to keep in mind when doing this is your clearances between your rack and your trailer as well as the clearances between your bike rack and your vehicle at the front. The design of the arms is offset towards the rear to help increase that clearance between your bike rack and your vehicle at the front.It features a two inch by two inch receiver, so to work with any bike rack that uses a two inch receiver that is rated for use with an RV or trailer.

The receiver features a 100 pound tongue weight. Now you want to keep that in mind because the tongue weight is whatever's inside the receiver, so that includes your bike rack plus the bikes loaded on it. A hundred pounds should be more than enough though for a bike rack that can carry two bikes, loaded up with two bikes. If you are planning to bring three or four bikes with you, then you'll want to make sure that you get a bike rack that is going to be low in weight and also that your bikes are low in weight in order to bring those with you.All the hardware you need to get it installed comes included. It clamps onto the frame of your trailer so there's no drilling into your trailer required.

Once you've got everything set up you will need to drill into the arms here since they are adjustable and custom for your specific application, so it is necessary to drill through the arm to install the bolt. Once you've got it set up with the proper clearances. A similar option out there is inaudible 00:02:48 jacket. This is a a frame mounted bike rack that installs in the front here. The difference between the jacket and our Stromberg Carlson here though is how it attaches to your frame.Our Carlson clamps around our frame where the jacket would go underneath your jack at the front of the trailer, usually found here right behind the tongue. Now my trailer doesn't have one here. I've got a side mounted Jack so I don't have a place to put that on my trailer so the jacket's not going to work for me. But the Stromberg Carlson worked out great. One of the thing that I do like about the jacket, however is that the bike rack is integrated into it so you don't have to purchase a separate bike rack to get your bikes up and running. It is limited to only two bikes, but it is rated for 80 pounds total, so yeah, it's 40 pounds per bike so you should be able to put just about any bike on it.I've got some measurements for you now to help you determine the appropriate fit for your trailer. The minimum distance between our brackets here at the bottom where it mounts on our frame is 12 inches, so we can have at least 12 inches between these two brackets. The maximum distance, that's going to be going further back, is going to be 52 inches between our two bracket and this is the distance that these arms are going to be able to slide in and also fit up here and line up properly. Also to help you determine if you've got enough clearance from the top of your frame on your trailer to the bottom of our cross tube it's about 31 inches. And then the distance from the inside of one arm of our cross tube to the inside of the other arm on our cross tube is going to be about 32 and a half inches.This way you can be sure your propane tanks are going to clear on the inside. Installation from trailer to trailer is going to be pretty much the same. The only differences between them is going to be your clearances and where you're going to have to mount the arms. I've gone ahead and installed it on this trailer. Let's go over that together so you can get an idea of what the installation is going to be like and have the confidence to do it on your own trailer.We'll begin our installation by mounting our brackets at the front of our trailer. You'll want your angled bracket like this and two of these. We'll be using the long threaded bolts that come in our kit to get those mounted up. Now you're going to have to figure out where you're going to place it on your frame. You want to avoid anything that you'll need to attach to, so you might have sway control or weight distribution system on your trailer. You want to make sure that you avoid those when installing your brackets on. The propane tanks typically sit about here. This is my popup camper here, so I've got the propane tanks removed currently for service, but it wouldn't really matter. You'd normally have tanks here. Our assembly's going to go up and over it, but if you did have any brackets towards the side of your frame for your propane, you would want to check out and make sure you're not going to obstruct any of those.We'll take our long bolt with our washer on it. That's going to feed through the top hole in our bracket here. And this will also go through the top hole in the bracket there. We're putting the flat surface up against our frame. On the other side, we're going to place a washer and a nut. We're going to do the same thing here on the other side at the top.Now we're just running these down and we want to leave them loose so we can slide it down the frame. If you want to find the appropriate position, we're going to be putting ours on about this location on our trailer, and we're going to install the bolts in the bottom side as well. We'll then slide our bottom bolt from the outside towards the inside using the hole that's closest to the bottom of our frame. And on the other side we're going to secure it with a flat washer and nut, just like the top bolts. We'll then do the same thing on the lower bolt for the other side of this bracket.We'll now take our arms, that's our bent tubes here and slide those down into our pockets. And you want to check. So you can see here that we're going to contact our camper. So we're going to have to move these lower ones a little bit in order to clear. So let's why we left everything loose. So we're just going to go ahead and slide this bracket down and then we'll slide this back in and recheck. I've gone ahead and moved our brackets a little bit and you can see here now that we've clear, you want to make sure you got at least one to two inches of clearance between your bars and your trailer or camper. We've got plenty of clearance now.So we'll take our top piece now and set this on top of the bars and then we can line it up to where our receiver is in the middle of our trailer. You'll see that there are some bolts running through your top receiver tube here. These are installed from the factory. Don't mess with those. They're stop bolts that are designed to rest on top of the tube. We'll now install our set screws. We're just going to be doing this by hand. You're going to have a set screw that we'll install on each end of your tube into the brace. So on our cross tube here we're going to have one here at the top. And at the bottom we're going to have one down here as well. Since these brackets are the same on each side, we put the set screw in here towards the front, so that means on the opposite side it's going to go in from the back, no big deal. But since it's the same hardware for both left and right, it's going to be on the opposite side.We can now go back and tighten down our lower brackets. We've got kind of everything mocked up where we want it, so let's get those tight. We'll use a half inch socket and wrench, tighten these down. And you want to kind of work back and forth when tightening these bolts down to make sure they get tightened down evenly. We can then go back and tighten down our set screws. We want to make sure that you still got it centered between your trailer and then just snug them down. These ones you don't need to go crazy with. It's mainly there just to hold it in position, so we're just going to go about a half a turn on it. And that's not going to come off of there. We're going to do that for the remaining three set screws.With all of our set screws tight, you can see here that our rack is pretty sturdy at this point, but we still need to drill through the remaining hole on each end of our tube here for our last bolt to ensure that it stays in this position, it's not going to come off. Before we drill everything out, it's a great idea to just do your checks again, making sure that your receiver tube is in the middle and that you've got at least two inches of clearance between your rack and your camper behind it.If everything looks good, we can then drill it out. The reason why this one must be drilled for each of these is because of the universal fit of our bike rack here. Because depending on the things you have on your frame rail here, your brackets may need to be further towards the front or towards the rear and since it's an A frame that's going to change the gap between these, so you may need to angle those bent arms in or out in order to line up with our top piece. So there's really no way to put preset hole positions in order for it to be as custom as this one's going to be. We'll use a three eights drill bit and use the hole that's already in our bracket as a pilot and drill straight through. Be careful when you come out the other side that you don't go into your trailer.We can then take the long bolts that have a shoulder on them in our kit. We're going to slide it through and place the nylon locking nut on the opposite side. We'll tighten these down with a nine sixteenths socket and wrench. We'll now repeat that for the remaining three holes, one on the other side at the top and two located down at the bottom. You'll see the holes that are already there in our lower brackets as well. We're going to be using those as a guide to drill through these. With everything tightened down, you can now grab your favorite trailer approved bike rack, slide it into your receiver, load it up and hit the road.Now with our bike bunk installed, it's a good idea to place your bike rack in it and load it up with some bikes and go for a test drive. I recommend that you have a spotter with you and just do some small loops around nearby to verify that you're going to clear because depending on your vehicle, your bike rack and your trailer, you may potentially run into clearance issues on sharp turns. I've gone ahead and set my truck up at an angle where I've got my truck turned so my trailer's at an angle here and you can see that the bikes here are slightly over my tailgate so if I had an SUV I would have some contact issues.Now if you are having further issues, you can loosen up your hardware, slide your brackets further back on your trailer and then you may have to re-drill your holes and everything to get it set up. Our trailer here, we weren't able to move them any further back than this due to pre attached components onto our side frame here. You do want to keep in mind that if you do have to move it back some, you want to keep at least two inches of clearance between the back of our rack here and the front of your trailer.Now if you've gone through all that and you're still having clearance issues, one more solution you have is you can invest into a new bike rack. A bike rack that I would highly recommend for this type of system is let's go arrows bike wing. The bike wing going to be a V-shaped bike wreck and it doesn't stick out as far, and it's a little bit easier to load than some of the other bike racks due to how high this sits up. Your platform and your hanging bike racks can be kind of difficult to load them by yourself. Now speaking of loading bikes, if you are hauling your trailer with a truck, I highly recommend that you hop in the back of your truck so you're high up enough where you can easily get these bikes loaded on here by yourself. If you have an SUV or something like that, then I'd highly recommend that you get an assistant to help you load your bikes up. And that completes our look at Stromberg Carlson's Bike Bunk.

It does the job as advertised, but the horizontal cross member is about an inch too short for my setup. It makes it nearly impossible to remove the cover for the 30-pound propane tanks. You can do it, but it is very tight. An additional 1/2-1 inch would be helpfuld. 570334

Just mounted the rack today. It was very easy to assemble. Tried a couple of places to get the best fit so I can get to my propane tanks. Only took about 45 min to mount. Put the bikes on but have not pulled the trailer with the bikes in place. 523620

This product has been a great way to carry our 2 bikes (1 mine, one my wife's). The install was fairly easy (it helps If you have 2 people to line things up, hold while drilling, etc). The best thing about this rack is being able to easily keep an eye on the bikes while traveling, whether driving or parked. I considered those bracket braces for the rear trailer bumper, but at the end of the day: (1). My trailer bumper doesn't look like it will handle torsion well, even with supplemental bracing; (2). The spare tire (already on the trailer bumper) got in the way; and (3). My bikes aren't cheap and I like being able to keep an eye on them. Thanks etrailer for your excellent videos and online advice! 482318

Perfect setup for what we needed. Installation issue - need longer bolts. Used the Swagman XP 3-bike hitch mount rack and carried 2 bikes. Drove close to 1,300 miles last year with the bikes on and had no issues. On-loading and off-loading bikes is very easy with a pickup truck - dropped tailgate is just the right height. 259805

Okay, shy of taking it out on the road (trip upcoming in a couple of weeks) I like it. Well built and sturdy. The install was a bit more complicated on one side that the other as there were some electrical issues and lines I had to deal with but that doesn't detract from the product. The one issue I had was one that has been written up by others that have installed it and that is that there are 2 bolts included that are just too short for their intended purpose by about 1/4 to 1/2 inch, so I had to run to re hardware store to replace. Other than that the install went smooth and the results I'm quite happy with. Oh yeah the tube sitting in on channel fit a bit tight but a spray of WD-40 fixed that right away. Bottom line, as it stands today without testing it on the road, it appears to be an excellent product. Road test will be the telling tale. 186295

Just installed it today. Relatively easy and the unit is made of good solid materials with legible and easy to follow instructions. Only downside is how high the bikes will ride but that is unavoidable. I like that we can transfer the bike rack to the Jeep once we get where we are headed and in effect have 2 racks, one for travel and one to use on the towing vehicle. Good price when I ordered it and great customer service. 502970

Worked out well for us for the last year. We love you can move your bike rack from the TT to the Tow Vehicle once you are at a destination. No complaints other than the bike do ride high and a step is needed to get them on and off. We went with a longer than stock shank to allow for clearance in making tight turns, backing and such so the bikes would not hit the T.V. Way better solution than the Jack It IMO. In short we are pleased with it

This product worked out great we love it it fits on the camper Tong perfectly and it is out-of-the-way for when you're backing up the vehicle does not hit the bikes. I would recommend this for anybody that needs to carry their bikes with them but don't have room on the bumper to put them. Plus on some of the reviews that we've read about your bike rack on the bumper it has bent the bumper and they've lost their bikes. 150394

The delivery was very quick and both items arrived at the same time and in excellent condition. We were able to put it on our travel trailer with no problem and it went together very easy! The bike rack was also very easy to put together and once we figured out the best way to put our bikes on it we were really pleased! We are looking forward to using it this weekend! Thank You, this really helpedus solve our problem of taking our bikes. 259042

Getting to try out the Stromberg Carlson bike bunk that I installed on the trailer hitch frame. Using it with a Go Aero V2 bike rack that I can use on the trailer or the truck. It works great! The bike rack is easy to transfer weighing only 12 pounds and no movement of bikes at all during travel. Very happy with this combo from etrailer.com 429535

Product works as advertised, but be careful with your tow vehicle. I use a 2005 GMC Savanna passenger van to tow my trailer and it damaged the vehicle when I made a turn. I’m sure there wouldn’t be a problem with a truck, but this didn’t work with my setup. Now collecting dust in the garage after one use. Too bad. I really liked the idea. 527847

I bought the bike bunk about a year ago and mounted it on my 2008 Dutchmen travel trailer. It went on pretty easy. Locating and drilling the holes was probably the most difficult part. I can remove the propane tanks cover and the battery with the bike bunk on as long as the bikes are not on. I used it for the first time on a trip from Illinois to Florida last Jan. I ended up with a little more weight on the tongue than I would like, but the trailer tracked fine and the bikes rode very well. So far I'm very happy with this purchase. It has freed up a lot of space in the bed of my truck and I can keep the bed cover closed. 407083

I bought this bike bunk to mount on the tongue of my R-pod camper. I carry 2 bikes on it, and I love having them right in my view as I drive along. I have very little bounce with this unit. Oh, BTW the bikes sit just high enough that they go over the tailgate on sharp turns. 474753

Perfect fit on the front of our RV Travel trailer- holds our receiver hitch bike racks at a height that doesn't impede maneuvering the trailer while backing up. We have a small (19') KZ Spree Express trailer, and this worked perfectly. Easy to install; hardest part was drilling the holes to secure the uprights in the final position. 355751

Great fit on my travel trailer. Took experts advice and purchased a Let's Go Aero Veeme V2 bike rack. Very pleased with both products. A safe way to carry our bikes while rv ing. Thanks etrailer experts for this solution. Both items easy to install and are very strong. The bike rack is easily moved to the receiver on my truck. 226284

I have a 2015 Wolf Pup. It is very similar to your trailer! I am towing with a Silverado. Are you having any issues with turning radius with bikes hitting tailgate.

It was the perfect solution for us. We have an R-POD and pulling it with a Silverado. Options are kind of limited if you want to use the bed for something else. This solution really saved the day. For me, install was a little tricky as I had to install it fairly close to the front of the camper due to the limited space on the a-frame. Basically, once the brackets are tightened down, the curve of the camper doesn't allow me to remove the poles. This isn't really a bad thing since you don't want it to come out anyway, but just kinda tricky to install. Yes, you do have to drill holes in the support vertical tubes, but once you understand the flexibility of this setup, it is very obvious why the manufacturing doesn't put them there for you in advance. Truthfully, at least with my setup, the locking bolts held everything in place perfectly without drilling the holes and installing the additional bolts. I wouldn't recommend this, of course, and I'll be fixing that on my install soon, but it actually did work fine without them. Highly recommended. 218423

It is difficult to use a center punch to mark the spots for drilling. The instructions say to mount it close to the trailer body. So, you will have little room to get a center punch in. Next, you will have little room to get a drill squared up to where you want to drill. You need several drill bits of increasing sizes to keep enlarging the holes. Expect to break several drill bits. BEWARE HYBRID trailer owners who have a bunk that opens and extends from the front of the trailer. You must unbolt ALL OF the brackets from the A-frame and remove ALL OF THE bike rack every time you camp. This rack stands too high to lower the front bunk out. Very time consuming to remove. Then reinstall when breaking camp. Otherwise, this rack is strong and does the job. Good rack ONLY IF you do not own a hybrid trailer. 703703

Easy to assemble. Because we have a toy hauler for motorcycles, we didn’t have a back bumper on the camper to place a bicycle rack. This was a great alternative. Little different with loading and unloading but they don’t interfere with turning and they ride really nice. 641321

Works OK on our Rpod. It was a little difficult drilling the 1/2 inch bolt holes with a hand drill but that's all I had. These guys could have provided some corrosion resistant fasteners. The provided bolts started to rust right away. 583482

I was looking for a way to mount a bike carrier on my 2016 Flagstaff Superlite TT. Due to the low ground clearance (14" rims) I couldn't relocate the rear bumper mounted spare underneath travel trailer. Tow vehicle is 2015 Ram 1500 4x2. Settled on the SC Bike Bunk plus Let's Go Aero BikeWing2 mounted as far back on front frame as possible so the bike bunk clears the propane bottle cover and maximizes distance between back of truck and bikes when turning. Success! I also made spacers ( bar stock from Home Depot cut down & painted black. see pic) which raised Bike Bunk up another 3/4" (every little bit helps!). My 26" wheeled bikes have 5.5" clearance above tailgate top. 29er will only have 2.5". No issues on flat ground whatsoever; concern may be up & over curb turning into gas stations with 29ers (not tested yet); 26" bikes no clearance issues experienced at all. Hint: GoAero rack tilts forward so I use trailer electric front jack to lower the whole front of trailer down when loading & unloading bikes. Easy peasy no step ladder. required! 578757

Still works. However, the issue I do have is the bolt that mounts the rack no longer screws in all the way. This prevents the rack from having a snug fit. I only used it 5 times a year and never tightened it to much to strip it. Again, it does serve its purpose still I just add bungie cords for added stability.

I bought this because I couldn't figure a good way to bring my bikes with us on vacations when we also brought our jet ski trailer. I looked at all sorts of different ways to try and get a bike rack and a trailer on my truck at the same time, and finally came across this. While it's not on a travel trailer like it was intended, it works perfectly for our needs. It fits right above the storage box holding our life jackets and other stuff, but gives enough room for the hatch to open up and let us retrieve the items. I paired this with a Lets Go Aero BikeWing and now I can bring the bikes, the jet skis, and still keep the truck bed free for our mattress and camping gear. If you are trying to find a way to bring your boat and bikes to the lake at the same time, and are towing with an SUV or a truck with a full bed, this is the perfect fit. 512524

Have it on our travel trailer. Works great for hauling our two bikes. It’s mounted close to trailer with a Hollywood two bike carrier. It’s a reach to get them on and off. I can do it myself but it’s easier with two people. 499747

Works great mounted on the tongue of our rpod camper. It could add a couple hundred pounds to the tongue weight, coupled with the bike rack and bikes, so the math has to be done for your tow vehicle. Overall, much more stable than a rear bike carrier. We will see what kind of rusting will occur with time spent outside. 494042

Very nice and sturdy. I would recommend this front camper bike rack. I wish they would have put some taped holes in the receiver, 2 on top and two on the side to tighten up your bike rack when you slide it into the receiver. I did it to mine and the bikes don’t wobble at all. All in all very nice product. 480719

This product did not disappoint. We managed to mount the hardware on the frame of our RV and the rack sits well away from the propane tank. It is very solid once installed. Very happy with this product. 475542

I wanted a well made bike rack for my new travel trailer, and it had to be hitch mounted vs mounted on the rear bumper on my trailer. Rear bumpers on trailers are notorious for lacking the structural integrity necessary for a bike rack with 2 bikes. I have not assembled this yet but I am impressed with the thickness of the metal parts. Instructions are somewhat skimpy but any person with minimal mechanical skills should be successful assembling this rack. 472236

So we finally started using this bike rack, and it is great. It fits nicely on the frame over our propane tanks. We have a travel trailer with the fold out beds which lowers right on top of where the bike rack is, so I had to saw the posts down about 5 inches, so the bed wasn't resting on it while it was down. Works great though. We have a light weight frame, so it is a little smaller than the normal frames, so the hardware that was included worked just fine (some commenters said that you needed longer bolts). We are really happy that we were able to find this rack, it saves a lot of time for us. thanks, 448192

Fits perfectly at the front of my Living Lite Camplite 14DBS. I have dual battery boxes and dual propane tanks (with a plastic cover over the tanks) and the curvature of the supports cleared these items with no problem. I will comment that although it is possible for 1 person to load bikes on a bike carrier attached to this rack, it is much easier and I highly recommend that 2 people do the loading. 418139

Seems to be a nice, quality product. Did not realize I had to drill the holes in the round up uprights, but I understand the logic. Except for drilling, installation was a breeze, though installation instructions could be better. 417196

summary: Good solid product but I struggled to drill the holes (especially the top two facing the trailer body) details: - the installation instructions are poor, and especially lack any tips on how to drill the holes. - I burned two HSS drill bits and finally finished the job after spending $20 on a titanium drill bit (3/8") - I need a tall ladder to get your bikes on/off (not just a small step ladder) - very sturdy once installed. I'm not worried about my bikes. 409643

Sp far so goos. Fit my [email protected] trailer and its very sturdily on the frame. Setup was straight forward and the drilling was easy. I'm not sure what the set screws are for after you drill and bolt pieces to each other... ;-) 402565

I knew I would like this when the photo on the box was that of my trailer and my truck down to the color. Actually, now that it is installed, I find it extremely sturdy and stable. I appreciate the fact it is very adaptable to many configurations. The only drawback I found was that holes have to be drilled in the tubes (top and bottom). Because of the close proximity of the trailer to the bracket, I had to mark and remove the tubes to drill the appropriate holes. Then I had to re-install and drill through to be able to install bolts. Definitely not plug and play but a great product, nonetheless. 400808

Do you have a question about this RV and Camper Bike Rack?


  • Bike Rack Needed to Fit Over Propane Tanks on a 20' 2016 Venture Sonic
  • We have a few options for you to carry your bikes over the tongue of your 20' 2016 Venture Sonic. The first option would be to use the Stromberg Carlson Bike Bunk # CC-275 which will fit frame widths from 12" to 52" and will allow you to attach a bike rack to the 2" receiver. One of the most popular bike racks that is used with this is the BikeWing-2 # B01311. It weighs 17 lbs and can carry up to 80 lbs of bike! (40 lbs each) If you are running out of room on your frame we also have...

  • Will the Stromberg Carlson Bike Bunk Part # CC-275 Fit a 2018 Lance Model 1995
  • The Stromberg Carlson Bike Bunk part # CC-275 will fit trailers that have space on the a-frame between 14"-55" back from the center of the coupler. As long as the weight of the rack and two bikes does not exceed 100 lbs then you will have no problem using the bike bunk with two bikes on your trailer. Also, please keep in mind that the bike rack must be rated for use on an RV in order to abide by the carriers warranty. If you do not have space available on the tongue of your a-frame...

  • Can a Bike Rack be Installed on the Trailer Side of the Bike Bunk # CC-275 for Clearance
  • Your idea for the Stromberg Carlson Bike Bunk # CC-275 is a great one, the only problem is that even some of our smallest bike racks stick out past the 16-1/2" of clearance that you are looking for. I may have another solution for you though. Check out the Lippert Jack-It # LC429756 that can hold up to 2 bikes weighing 40 lbs each. This bike rack installs on an A-frame trailer and fits around jacks with up to 2-1/4" outer tube diameter and 22-1/2" clearance. Since this bike rack holds...

  • How to Carry Four Bikes and Tow Pop-Up Camper
  • We do have a potential solution for you, though the Swagman Original 4 Bike Towing Rack # S64675 does not allow a rise in the shank. The way this rack works is actually that the hitch ball gets attached to the rack, which is why you can't have a rise or drop when using it. Instead, the best option, assuming your pop-up camper is an A-frame, is to use the Stromberg Carlson Bike Bunk Trailer-Mounted Bike Rack Carrier for A-Frame Trailers # CC-275 with the Swagman Original - 4 Bike Rack...

  • Bike Rack Compatible with A-Frame on a 2019 Rockwood Mini
  • The Jack-It 2 Bike Rack for A-Frame Trailers # LC429756 unfortunately is not designed to be used in any other way and there aren't any other adapters for it except for the Bump-It Hitch Receiver Adapter for Jack-It 2 Bike Rack # LC723359 to allow the use of a normal trailer hitch receiver that is either 1-1/4 inches or 2 inches. That is designed for vehicle use and not RV use, so it may be wise to sell your current rack and get something that will work with your trailer. A better option...

  • On the Curt front mount receiver # 31198 there is a note stating that the skid shield will either have to be removed or you can trim it and reinstall in on your 2018 Toyota Tundra. For the Draw-Tite receiver # 65080 we have a note stating that the skid shield must be removed but nothing about being able to reinstall it. Some customers have noted that they had to make or enlarge a hole on a bottom panel in order to be able to change the oil. You may also consider using the Bike Bunk,...

The Curt # D210 is rated for up to 7,500 lbs and is slightly shorter. You will need 5 inches of clearance between the center of the hitch pin hole and the outermost edge of the bumper to not make contract with the top receiver tube.

  • Recommended Trailer Mounted Bike Rack For A-Frame Trailers
  • If you add a dual receiver adapter like the Curt Dual 2" Receiver Tube Adapter, 8" Extension # D-192 to your Toyota Tacoma, it will not only add the tongue weight, but will reduce your hitches tongue weight capacity by 50%. I recommend going with the Stromberg Carlson Bike Bunk Trailer-Mounted Bike Rack Carrier for A-Frame Trailers - 2"-100 lbs # CC-275 which will allow you to use your current rack, and will add that trailer tongue weight, but will not reduce your hitch's tongue weight...

  • Bike Rack Needed for Kayak Clearance When Using the Stromberg Carlson Bike Bunk

Just for reference, the Thule T2 Pro XTS # TH9034XTS that you currently use measures 41-1/2" from the center of the hitch pin hole to the farthest edge of the bike rack. If you want to stick with the Thule brand then the Thule T2 Classic # TH9044 only measures 36" from the hitch pin hole to the end of the bike rack. This is the base model version of the T2 Pro that you...

This will give you a 2 inch trailer hitch receiver opening for you to use a bike rack with. From the top of the A-frame of your R-Pod to the top of the cross tube is 33-1/2 inches, which should clear your electric tongue jack, and it has a weight capacity of 100 lbs.

There is no limit to the number of bikes that can be used. However, the bike carrier must be rated for use on a trailer so that is something to keep in mind as well. For a lightweight bike carrier that can be used on a trailer, I recommend the Swagman Original part # S64152-2...

  • Bike Rack Solution for 2018 Airstream Basecamp Travel Trailer

The Bike Bunk's brackets are almost 5-inches wide and it appears you'd have to do some serious cutting on your propane cover.

  • Recommended Option for Safely Towing Tear Drop Trailer and Using Bike Rack
  • Your 2017 NuCamp [email protected] Outback tear-drop trailer is nice indeed, but it does not lend itself too well to use with an RV bike rack since the tongue area is already well-utilized for (and mostly covered by) cargo and storage structures. Were this not the case then the a-frame-mount Bike Bunk # CC-275 would do the trick. The adjustable Bike Bunk mounts to the a-frame and provides a 2-inch receiver for use with an RV-approved bike carrier like the Lets Go Aero BikeWing-2 2-Bike Rack # B01311....

This will allow you to tow your trailer and use a bike rack without needing an additional ball mount. Using this adapter...

  • Towing a Trailer and Carrying Bikes at the Same Time with a 2014 Honda Odyssey
  • The Thule T2 # TH9044 will work in the receiver portion of multipurpose ball mount # D210. The issue is that you will likely have reduced turning clearance when towing the trailer and the bikes and/or rack could make contact with the trailer if you were to turn tightly enough. The height of the ball mount is another potential issue. The D210 has a 2-1/4 inch drop. To determine if this will be a factor there are some measurements you can take. First measure from the ground to the top...

  • 4-Bike Rack for Use on Rear of Travel Trailer
  • It is fairly unusual for a travel trailer to have a 1-1/4-inch hitch installed; these days most trailers and RVs have a 2-inch hitch that offers more strength and a higher weight-carrying capacity. We offer 2-inch hitches made to install on RVs and trailers, both bumper-mount and frame-mount types, that are shown on the linked page. The highest weight capacity comes from a frame-mount type hitch like Curt's # 13703. This one can be bolted on or welded on to a trailer frame from 22-...

Keep in mind though that this coupler is zinc plated so any welding should be done by someone with experience welding with zinc plated steel in a well-ventilated area. I am not sure what you will be using the receiver for but there are some products that mount to the front of a trailer and have a 2 inch receiver for accessories like a bike rack.

The Draw-Tite Max-Frame Trailer Hitch Receiver part # 75673 while installed on a 2017 Subaru Outback Wagon measures 5" from the center of the hitch pin hole to the rear edge of the bumper fascia. Therefore, the Curt Multipurpose Ball Mount would be a tight fit and likely rub. However, I do still have options for you to tow a trailer...

  • Towing a Trailer and Carrying Bikes at the Same Time with a 2012 Toyota RAV4
  • Yes, there are ways to carry bikes and tow a trailer at the same time. First we need to look at the tongue weight capacity of the vehicle. I checked the 2012 Toyota RAV4 owner's manual and for the V6 with tow package the tongue weight capacity of the vehicle is 350 pounds. This is important because the combined weight of the trailer's tongue weight and the weight of the loaded bike rack cannot exceed 350 pounds. The weight of your 2004 Starcraft 2107 trailer is 1,758 pounds. That would...

  • Is there a Shorter Shank to Move Bike Rack Closer to Trailer when Using the Jack-It
  • I checked with Lippert, manufacturer of the Jack-It # LC429756 and they do not list an alternate shank. The only thing I can think of is that people are modifying it to fit their needs. You could instead use the Bike Bunk, # CC-275, with the BikeWing, # B01311. This will allow you to place the Bike Bunk on the A-frame at a spacing as narrow as 12 inches and as much as 52 inches (and basically anything in between).
