Bike Rack

Does anyone have experience with these racks? I want to carry 3 bikes. I had a welder come by and reinforce my bumper for the added weight and more.
I've only seen one of these up close early this year on a 5th wheel. It seems like a good design. Any thoughts or maybe a better option?

If you have ever followed a 5th wheel on a typical road - bumps and cracks - you will see how much it twists. I'd want more than one point of attachment to my trailer. as the rack will twist even more. Just what I would do. It may work perfectly for you.

Since starting this post I've selected a Yakima rack designed for tts. Along with reinforcing the bumper I had the welder add tie down brackets on each side where the bumper joins the frame. I plan on using straps from these points to help stabilize the bike rack and minimize any twisting and bouncing.


Thanks,
John

Good Move. I use a Thule on my 5th wheel.
