Looking at getting an enclosed trailer and would like to find the name of the company that makes the roof mounted bike holder.

Thanks

That looks like a good idea...BUT the roof of a trailer is not designed to support loads the way that the floor is. Most trailers I have seen are just a weather protective box on a rigid platform. That rack appears to transfer all of the lateral load from the bike into the ceiling of the trailer. I would check with the trailer manufacturer before installing one of those things. Just my 2 cents-

What I want to know is if anyone has ever mounted a trailer hitch on the front of an RV and put a bike on a carrier up there? Any issues? Leagal or otherwise?

My boat is behind the RV, so I need the bike up front <grin>

I carry my WR and YZ80 on the back hitch on 2 rails, on the front i bought the little wheel carriers that mount to the bumper, i can put a pw80 or the yz80 on the front! If your talking about mounting a 2" reciever on the front with Bike Caddy, motojack, whatever, i think you can as long as your blocking your vision of the road.

You know if you are at all mechanically inclined you can probably make your own. There is some very good pictures on that website. All that is is 1" square tubing, angle iron, a few weld nuts, fastners, some smaller square tubing maybe 3/4 so it will telescope inside the 1"sq, and some velcro.

There cant be more than $30 in material in that. Throw in a wire welder and your in.

Dang, looks like a sharp turn would put that little car on it's side! My heavy DRZ would probably just collapse the roof! :)

John,

That pic was posted here, some time back :) :D It was actually taken at a track (Rausch Creek) I have riden, here in Pa. I think dthwshbkr posted it originally.

I have decided to go with removable chocks and good ole fashioned, tie downs. I agree that the roof is not strong enough to take the torquing of the bike, especially with the extra leverage.

I usually travel alone and would like to set the trailer up for one bike, power washer, generator, tools, gear and water supply. Everything spread out and evenly distributed......weight wise. Yet be able to make adjustments to my layout and carry three bikes.

Any ideas???? Anyone have pics?

Thanks
Bill
