Where to mount my bike.

I have a 17 foot boler Im currently restoring. With the spare tire on the back and propane tanks on the front I canít figure out where to put my bike while towing. Any suggestions?

Check out Googles "bike rack above propane tanks"


Many photos of different ideas....

it depends on your tow vehicle as well, if the tow vehicle has a bumper with hitch hole you can mount the rack there. I always like to reduce the trailer weight and add weight to tow vehicle if possible.

Step 1: get real data on your current setup. What is your current tongue weight, and what is the current total trailer weight.

Step 2: Depending on your tongue weight, either get a spare tire mounted bike rack (will lighten your tongue weight) or a rack above the propane tanks as others have suggested (will add weight to your tongue weight).

Another choice is a roof rack on your tow vehicle.

We had a rack on back of our Scamp, and just too much sway.
Ended up taking off front wheels of bikes, and hauling them inside Scamp. Works well for us.

We have a spare tire holder on the back of our Nissan Xterra and a storage box on the front of our Boler.

We like to have the ability to take our mountain bikes with us after we drop trailer at a campsite so we can drive to local trails.

In order for maximum turning Radius we simply remove the front wheels of our bikes.

The Thule bike carrier has also been modified to sit higher than normal.

Took a bit of work but does the trick and adds no extra trailer weight.
