Use bike racks mounted on plywood. While camping put the plywood/rack under the camper:

I wanted a bike cover for my new Swagman 63644 rack ( LOVE IT ).
Everything I saw was too expensuve or cheap vinyl.
Had just purchased a new cover for my grill from Amazon. Thought it may work as a bike cover. I don't usually rave about made in China stuff, but these were VERY WELL DESIGNED AND MADE and very reasonably priced. I bought another one for about $25!!!!  and added some grommets along the bottom. They come with velcro ties at the bottom, but now I add a few bungee cords for good measure, using the grommets.
WORKS GREAT!!! Buy it.
Happy Trails.......

Request permission to steal this idea with minor modification for a kayak. I swear if anyone asks, full credit will be given.

I think if you make even a tiny modification, you can claim credit for the whole thing. That's the philosophy I've adopted  ;D

Just added a bike rack to the back of our 21BHS this summer. Had the rear bumper reinforced by the factory when it was built (back when they were still doing it the right way.....see pic below). We bought a Swagman receiver for the bumper and then attached a Swagman bike rack that we already had (from an older SUV). It works great and holds the bikes nice and steady! Then, just to be sure that everything goes well back there while towing, we added a Voyager digital wireless camera for the back of the camper (mounted on top), which also helps us keep an eye on traffic behind us!

Thanks, Credit is not needed. Hope the idea is something you can build on!  :)

rideandfly,,,,,,

I had a similar set up in the back of the truck, don't ask how, but I ended up breaking the drop-out on the Rock Shox, (on my Cannondale SM500). I now have a "Kuat", great racks.
