Default BLOND MOMENT

First I want to thank the person who posted about the bike rack for the 2008. Fun Finder. They were even kind enough to put a nice. Easy link on the post for etrailer. I went right to the computer and ordered a clampy thingy for my bumper and a 4 bike rack.( Not sure why 4 bike rack, I mostly travel alone) It was delivered to house free, weighed 50# or so, I was ready to go until....I checked the back of the Fun Finder and alas NO BUMPER. I wrongly assumed (I know, I know) all the models had a bumper, I was so sure I had one I even looked underneath!! Ok I was in a panic. I called etrailer the lady was very nice after her initial chuckle, and she has kindly sent me a return tag. That will teach me to seize the moment when on the computer. Meantime, no bike solution yet.

If you only have 1 bike it should fit inside.
I know they say not to attach a bike to the spare tire (someone makes a bike mount there) but I think it can handle a bike.
I use it to climb up on to the roof and it feels solid.

Theres also a hitch that mounts bike between truck and camper.that has a rack on it im not sure if it will work because the 189fbs sits close to truck(at least mine does with the tire in the back)

A few years ago I noticed a trailer that someone had modified the spare tire mount to hold a bicycle. A bicycle and spare tire should weigh about the same so no extra weight would be added to the mount. The spare would be stowed somewhere else.

I thought about putting the bike inside, I do not feel like struggling. I like the idea of moving the tire. I do not keep much in my huge storage, so I could put the tire there and look for a bike mount for that bolt. Hmmm great idea, thank you. If anyone has done this, please let me know.
