Recommended Trailer Hitch And Bike Carrier For Forest River R Pod

Question:

We have a 2015 Toyota FJ Cruiser and just bought a Forest River r pod 179. We need to carry two bikes with the camper and then still get the bikes to the trail after arriving at campsite. Any suggestions?

I recommend first installing a trailer hitch on the back of your Rpod, and then a hitch mounted bike carrier.

The trailer hitch I recommend is the Curt Adjustable Width Trailer Hitch, part # 13703. This will work with RVs that have a frame width between 22 and 72 inches. The hitch can be bolted on or welded on.

The bike carrier I recommend is the Let's Go Aero VeeMe V2 2-Bike Rack, part # VME-V2. This rack is RV rated and has a weight capacity of 50-lbs per bike. This rack weight just 12-1/2 lbs.

Question:

We are concerned about weight on the back of the r pod and thought a tongue mounted rack that holds a bicycle rack would be good. Then switch the bicycle rack to FJ to get to trail. Any thoughts on that idea?

If your ball mount is long enough you may be interested in one of the bike racks like the Advantage SportsRack V-Rack 2 Bike Rack, part # HE1011.

Another option you may be able to work with is the Stromberg Carlson Bike Bunk Trailer, part # CC-275. This clamps to the A-frame on the front of your R-pod.

For a bike rack you may be interested in a rack like the Rola TX-102, part # 59400. I have attached a link to the hitch mounted hanging bikes we offer you can check out.
