    We just bought a 1999 coleman cheyenne pop up camper and would like to know where I would purchase a roof top bike rack that I can mount on top of the pop up? I would like to find one locally and not have to purchase online.

    I saw directions for a rack made of PVC pipe but we haven't tried it yet.

    i went with that style from degisme as well, although I used solid tubing as compared to what he used. Cut the pieces and welded them all up in one day, painted it and installed the Saris fork mounts (4) plus two holders for front tires. Just have to drill it for the pins and drill it for trailer attachment. All told, about $150 for everything, compared to $550 for what the dealer said he would install it for. If I get a chance I will post pictures in the near future.
