    RAH Bike Rack

    Has anyone found a commercially available bicycle rack to use on their Roll A Home?

    I put this question to my brain and it came up with this idea:

    Fabricate a steel piece that would bolt up with the spare tire mounts. Then weld a square / rectangle bar running aft and use it as a hitch mount for a bike rack.

    My brain couldn't determine changes in handling and weight distribution. Also my brain cant be the only one that reasoned this out; has anyone else tried it?

    I don't think the bike would weigh enough to throw off anything. Are you thinking of leaving the wheels on and mount it or could you pull the wheels and hook it up using the mounting holes for the axles?

    What I thought was run the female square pipe from the spare tire mount to the rear of the box, to act as a receiver. Then have a male pipe that would slide inside and could be easily disconnected. The bike(s) would ride just like it does on flat backed SUV's with a trailer hitch, perpendicular to the back of the trailer, wheels in place.
