I have a 5th wheel so I hauled the bikes on the receiver on the back bumper of my camper...I found that the more tie wraps I used on the bikes the less they bounced around to cause damage to the camper...

I guess that depends on what kind of trailer you have and what you tow it with. Ours is a travel trailer so the bikes just go in the truck bed under the tonneau cover.

Eye bolts into the trailer corner..straps to stop bikes from bouncing . Nice and solid.

We just purchased a new zinger 328SB.. we have a 2011 f150 Ecoboost with max tow. I'm hoping we can mount a bike rack on the back. We have the dogs that ride in back of the truck in their kennels.

Historically I have put all 4 bikes on the camper's rear bumper with straps to prevent bouncing. I am looking to put other items on the rear bumper (with the safety strut brackets), so am going to install a front receiver and throw the bikes out front.

edit - we used to just thrown them in the bed of the truck, but then if feel like the take up too much space and are always getting moved even if we don't use them.

Bikes & Hitch

I built my own hitch and 2" receiver and attached it to my RV frame. I then purchased a bike rack from Canadian tire which slides into the receiver and also folds away to nothing when not in use.

I found that on the back of our 5'er even with clamping mounts on all the hitches, there was still enough play that I did have to spend 30 minutes strapping them down

with the toad now, I'll just mount the carrier on the back of the jeep...
