I am looking for suggestions on how to haul two mountain bikes in our toy hauler without laying them down. I'm in MN, so I have a cou0lle of months before we take the unit out of storage, but would like to have a plan when we do

I made myself a PVC bike rack about ten years ago. The thing still holds up and works like a champ. It was originally for the bed of my truck, but we use it in the TH garage anytime we take the bikes. Still love it.

I put a dog bed against the side wall then lean the first bike against that and cover with a moving blanket then lean the second bike with another blanket. I keep going until I run out of bikes or room. Sometimes I haul bikes for other people. I don't tie them down and haven't had them move or cause damage to one another.

Not a TH owner yet, but couldnt you just strap them in an upright position to the tie-down points like you would a dirt bike?

I wish we had had a TH all these years of hauling our two ebikes on the front of our TV. It takes an hour to tie them up so they don't bounce around too much on the bad roads to Florida AND they get dirty especially on the snowy roads.

Are the e bikes easy enough to lift onto a rack? Not sure how much they weigh, looking at them myself.

I would put a hook up high on the wall and hang them from the front tire.

My wife and I have e-bikes and they're pretty heavy. I've got a pad for my tailgate and it takes some oomf to get them into the truck. The harder part is lifting mine out without any leverage. It's not pretty to watch.

These things are great though. You can ride forever, until your butt gives out.

I've got 2,000+ miles on mine.

By the way Nayther...

We really must be getting old.

When the talk in the Toy Hauler forum turns to e-biles...

Amen bro!

Actually I've been eyeing the fat tire versions, can access some offroad stuff that are "non-motorized" and some MTB trails. A desert racing friend has some and they love them, he rides his all around Ridgecrest/Inyokern
