    I wonder if they will work with the bowed out extrusion on the roof? My roof varies in width quite a bit from the front of the camper to the middle.

    They may help pull it back into alignment!

    I have a strangely specific question for all you GFC mountain bikers out there. I have a Yakima HoldUp EVO 2 hitch rack that is angled upward in the rear. My mountain bike handlebars (800mm wide) come pretty close to my topper, and I am wondering if I am going to be able to clear the GFC.

    My question is, what rack are you using, how wide are your handlebars, and how close does it come to the back hatch of the go fast? Thanks in advance!! Here is a picture without the topper on:

    I didn't know if my roof was consistent when I installed my beef bars. I put on 2 bars first, one near the front and one near the rear. They were a pretty perfect snug fit. When I went to put on the middle bar the extrusion was about 1/8" wider so I disassembled the bar and first attached the bracket to the extrusion then loosely mounted the bar bracket which allowed me to slip in the bar. Then tightened all the screws to get it to suck in. If that all makes sense. 20190522_133151.jpg

    1UP is the correct answer is almost every situation. With every other rack, you will need a lot of room since the bike rocks back and forth and will be banging on the GFC. The 1up does not suffer from this and is completely solid.

    My handlebars are 740mm, but it doesn't matter. There is infinite adjustability with the 1up - both on where the bike sits side to side (driver<--> passenger) as well as how far you can insert it into the hitch since it does not rely on a fixed pin with one position.

    I don't have a GFC yet, but you can see my setup:

    Here's the most recent photo I have with a bike on it. Sorry for it being terribly out of focus - my friend forgot I switched his camera to manual focus.

    When I built my rack I had about a 3/4" difference from the front to the middle of the roof.

    Here's some pics of the flap that might clarify. I think it's there to provide somewhat of a buffer to help keep rain running down the back of the tent from the interior. If the gutter fills too fast there's nothing to keep it from the interior without this flap.

    Beat me to the punch. Went out camping last night and took some pictures. But they look exactly like yours. Haha

    ...too much shit to list.
    I’d you don’t want to spend the money on a new rack, just get a receiver extension. Cheap and easy solution.

    Example:

    The 1up is an awesome rack, and if I didn’t have a prodeal on the Yakima, I would have gone that route for sure.

    The HoldUp evo does hold the bike very secure, and I don’t get much movement from the bike. It does not have a way to adjust the bikes to be farther from the truck though. I am assuming that Yakima designed the rack to be higher in the back than by the hitch to increase departure angle (especially with the 4 bike version), but it does lean the bikes into the truck a bit.

    Even better, get a swing out hitch. It'll give you some extra space and it's clutch when camping. My rack attach one came with an anti-wobble plate.

    That is a good call! I may have to wait and see if it fits once I get my go fast, then order this if it doesn’t. Still hoping someone with a GFC and similar mountain bike hitch rack will chime in.

    So i have a tacoma, 1up rack and threw my hightower LT with 800mm bars on the rack. Sadly even with the infinite adjustability of the 1up rack the bars were still only about 1-2 inches away from rear window of the gfc and with the sway of the bike the bars would make contact. I ended up just throwing a hitch extender on there and it works great. I also have a swingout that i use on longer bike trips

    If it helps, my bike clears my snugtop shell with plenty of room. I have the rack attach and a 1up rack (mounted as close to the truck as possible).

    Got any pics? Does your tailgate clear the 1up tray with the rack attach?

    Good to know, thanks. I am going to assume that I will end up needing some sort of extension to make my rack work.

    My rack does clear my current topper as well with enough space so it doesn’t make contact, just want to be prepared for the go fast in October.

    A little hard to see in this pic (it is the only one I have), but it clears my top by a few inches.

    No pics since the shell is off in preparation for my drifter. The tailgate opened just fine with the rack in the horizontal (bike carrying) position, but I almost always had it swung out to the side once bikes were off.

    I love the idea of a 1up rack, but if I had their model that fits a standard mtb, I can't fit my fat bike, let alone my road bike (especially as it has fenders).

    My sister has a 6 bike North Shore Rack on a swing out hitch mount. The bikes are mounted front wheel up and toward the vehicle, so they are no wider than their Sprinter van and only stick out a few feet. If I had a family and needed to have more than a couple bikes, this is the one I would want.
