Bumper Bike Rack

So I just removed the entire bike rack slide out assembly from my 2010 Laredo 5th wheel. It weighed in excess of 200#s and was mounted by just 8 rather small bolts. Replaced it with a Curt class III hitch mounted to the frame with 8 grade 8 bolts. Going to use a hitch mounted bike rack from now on. Much better setup and now the trailer is roughly 130# lighter.

I put the stinky slinky in an old tote

And yes, need to find a solution for the spare. Donít want it rolling around in the truck bed all summer. I canít find a simple mount that attaches to the underbelly cross members. I might just hack up and bolt on the one from the number carrier. I also have JTstrong arms bolted to the front and rear cross members so the spare is gonna have to go further Inboard.

Got it. Never have liked the so called "cargo carrier". I have a mod I built up so I can safely carry our bikes. I'll post pics of that later this spring when I assemble everything to use it.
Thanks for your response
