Does anybody have pictures of the proper way of welding a receiver to the frame for a rear bike rack? Last trip we took I seen a camper with 3 bike dragging on the ground because they mounted the rack on the rear bumper with U bolts.
There are numerous pictures here on the forum of how members have went about the bike rack issue. If you do a search you will come up with many different ways/ideas.
I see your rig is a new one.
Just so you are aware of it, you might void the frame warranty if you do what you are thinking of.
