Bike rack

Hi: we have a 1975 13' Boler and would like to add a rack to carry our 2 bicycles. Our tow vehicle is a Chev truck with topper. Anybody have plans we could copy to build the rack either on the front (tongue) area or on the back bumper?

It's not advisable to attach a rear rack only to the bumper, bikes on a rack have a lot of leverage, I've seen a couple rear racks break right off.

I am planning on building a bike rack that goes where the dinette is. It will take a minute to remove the bikes and set up the bed at the campsite, but the weight balance should be better.

I have also seen trailer hitches installed on the front of the tow vehicle for a bike rack.
