I need to be able to transport 4 bikes max (rarely, most of the time just 2) while having room in the bed for camping gear and not using the hitch (a travel trailer will be back there). I also don't like the roof racks, seems kinda high to reach.
So here is my idea:
use these L2S brackets and then these Yakima bike racks on top. See images below.
Will I be able to fit 4 bikes? Of course, this will be crazy expensive - $800+ or so is my first estimate for a 4 bike setup. But will it work? How about alternatives, maybe less expensive?
Thanks a lot for any input!
I hope ppham444 does not mind me linking to his image. Let me know if you want me to remove it!
