    Hello,
    My 2003 Flagstaff POP has a C style rear bumper. I have found out that I need to transport my kids' bicycles. I already have a bike rack I use on my SUV and would like to put a 2 inch receiver on the back of the camper. I have also seen someone with bikes mounted on the roof of the camper. Any suggestions?
    Thanks. C

    Just because it has a C channel bumper does not mean it will hold weight. How is it attached to the frame, and with what? Most pup bumpers are poorly attached.

    The consensus is to mount the bikes on your roof. The bumpers on the back of pop ups aren't made to the same specs as an RV.
