Are your bikes standing? in racks? or using kick stands?

Or are they laying flat?

Pictures? I have a T2553 and need to carry two adult bikes. I have considered carrying them laying on the bed or standing in the front but am concerned they will move around and mess up the inside of the camper.

Thanks!

David,

Check out this RV.net Forum post:
http://www.trailerlife.com/cforum/in...g/1/page/1.cfm

This shows how one individual created a bike stand to use inside his trailer to secure their bikes.

This may spark an idea of how you can put your bikes inside your trailer.

I built a bike rack to fit over the top of the bed of the truck to carry our bikes. This kept the bed of the truck free for other camping items.
Here's a picture of it:

I’ve got an auxiliary cooler for the transmission and I’ve added a transmission temp gauge to keep an eye on it when towing. I’ve got electric fans on the truck too.

I saw another rack made of pvc pipe. I think I may have to work on something to put in my 2553. It will probably be a week or two before I can work on it. My pc crashed and I am busy getting everything loaded back on it. I will try to report back.


Thanks for the ideas!

David

It's funny how plans change. I changed my TV a couple weeks ago so now it looks like I'm going to try something like PTHutch showed to carry them in the TT.
