Any suggestions on bike racks? WE have Rpod 179 pulled by Nissan Frontier.

We use the Highland Sportwing 2 bike rack which mounts on the spare tire receiver of the 179 and put the spare tire in the bed of our Nissan Frontier. We are very happy with this setup as the rack can be placed in the Frontier receiver when you leave the 179 at the campground.

Can the bikes be placed on the Frontier receiver when towing?
Thanks.

Yes there's an adapter to from the 1.25"receiver to the 2" receiver. This rack is exactly like the Forest River recommended rack.

I use the stromberg carlson tongue mount dual bike rack with my wait for it......... Frontier. I can see the bike in my rear view mirror as I drive. I would be afraid to have them in the back. Once I forgot to fasten them properly, and as I was driving I noticed them really moving. I stopped and realized my error, and fixed it. I would never have known on a rear mount. It's a little more expensive though.

Jerry,
I misunderstood your question about putting the rack on the Frontier it can only be placed in the Frontier receiver when you are not towing.

Is there a bike rack that mounts on the front of a p/u, kinda like the ones you see on busses in bike friendly areas?

They do make and I have one truck with a front mount 2" hitch receiver. Easy to make it to carry a bike(s) adapter. Front mount hitches are fairly common.
