As many campers know bringing the bikes can be challenging. We travel with our motorcycle in the truck bed, so putting them there is not an option. We originally put our bike rack on the back bumper of our camper which led to several problems. 1. We couldnt see that the bikes were still there. 2. On a long trip to Florida on rough highways the bikes literally beat dents in our camper 3. The weight of them eventually cracked the welding on the bumper. We had been looking for some sort of tongue mount bike rack, which we found at a whopping $2000 out of Canada. When we saw this adapter at Walmart we thought we'd give it a try. Once my husband attached the adapter securely to the tongue and over the propane tanks it was easy to put our current bike rack right in the universal port. There is some natural movement like with any bike rack as we travel, but none to cause concern. Now we can see the bikes as we travel! We just took our first 11 hour trip with it and made no adjustments. It's also high up and out of the way so that nodody walks into it at the camp ground. Worked like a charm and provided us with peace of mind.

About This Item
Stromberg Carlson Bike Bunk:
33.5? from the top of your trailer A-frame to the top of the Bike Bunk cross tube, 29? from the top of your trailer A-frame to the bottom of the receiver tube on the cross tube. Due to the bent design on the vertical bent posts, lower pockets can be mounted on your A-frame at widths varying from 14? to 55?.
If you have propane tanks installed and the bike bunk cross bar is located above them, one of three things can be done to allow you to remove your tanks for refill or to access valves without removing the cross tube.
- Replace your existing tank cover with a soft vinyl cover, allowing access to your LP valves or to remove LP tanks without having to remove the cross bar.
- Replace your existing tank cover with a flip-top hard plastic cover to access your LP valves. You will need to remove the cross bar to remove cover and refill LP tanks.
- Leave the tank cover off for direct access to your LP tanks.
All steel design. Bike rack not included.

A great option.
This is a very solid option to hauling bikes with a travel trailer. The bike bunk is made very well and looks like it will do the job well. Because it is made to fit a variety of trailer models be prepared to have to do some work to mount it. You will have to have a good drill and bits for drilling the mounting bolts. If you aren't handy I would suggest getting someone to help you out. Took me about an hour to get everything fit and finished. If you are looking for a solution to a bike hauling problem I would recommend this product. I mounted this to a 2018 Coachmen Apex Nano.
