    Did you need help on how to install it or how you mount the bikes in it?

    I was actually trying to figure out who made it and where it came,But with a little digging i figured it out. I would like to know how to mount the bikes in it.I have not tried to figure it out yet.It is not on the camper yet,I am waiting to get it back from the paint place i sent it to. Thanks

    Looking at the diagram, it appears that the large hook fits OVER the front wheel and it has a small hook (clamp) for the rear.

    There are two small brackets in the front and back of the channel where the tire sits a velcro straps go through them and through the tire.That is why i am not sure where the large arm goes.I think it might go on the center bar of the bike.
