    Is it safe/possible to mount two bicycles on my Pop?
    My rv's roof has the two tracks plus the air conditioner.
    Would appreciate advice on this.
    thanks

    It's been done.Try searching"rooftop bike rack" or "bicycle rack" using the search feature. There are too many to link you to direct

    Yes you can. The tracks are Yakima Tracks, so you can use Yakima parts or others that work with Yakima Tracks. I have the full Yakima accessories for my Utah and have carried 4 bikes
    on my roof and I also have AC on my roof. I have no problems with my roof.

    I used the roof tracks on my '06 Fleetwood to mount a PVC bike rack that I built.

    I've also carried a small sailboat on top along with 2 bikes.

    There was another thread about bike rack options recently, do a search for it as it included options off the roof (rear bumper, over the tongue, on the TV, etc) that might work better for you.

    We also went the Yakima route since we already had some accessories we had used for biking and skiing with our cars. We don't have AC and were able to fit 5 bikes on the roof by switching the direction as you go across. Buying the whole setup new can be fairly expensive but we were able to find a lot of the parts for sale on Craigslist. The biggest challenge is finding the longer crossbars you'll want to extend across the camper but we found those on CL as well.

    If I remember correctly 3/4" black or galvanized hard pipe will work also for crossbars.
