I bought a Stromberg Carlson Bike Bunk. Then use a 4 bike rack on it. The kind rack that the bikes sit on, not hanging for obvious height reasons.

This is the bike rack I use: https://www.etrailer.com/Hitch-Bike-...an/S64665.html

Traveled well over 3000 miles with four bikes on it.

Well, they traveled 3000 miles and I didn't notice a single bug! But they did get wet from rain. I think the truck must buffet the wind enough that they don't just splat on the bikes. As a matter of fact, I can't recall finding splatted bugs on the front of my TT either? Hmmm.

Piece of advice though. Make sure the bikes clear the tailgate in sharp turns. I had to raise mine up a bit to clear my tailgate.

Interesting! Last few seasons we were pulling a '13 Salem 21RBS with an '06 GMC Sierra 1500, and the front of the truck and the nose of the trailer were just coated with bugs. Having a good wax job was vital for ease of clean up!

Haven't seen how it'll be with the "new" truck n trailer... but if it's anything like the last one, a bike mounted there would be just gross by the time we got to our destination.

We transport our bikes inside as well. I built a small pvc bike rack that fits between opposing slide outs. The bike rack also works well for holding bikes secure once we arrive.

WNY'S option is great. I did the same thing and can carry 4 mountain bikes on my dinette. Safe and sound out of any rain or road debris.

If you have room in the truck bed, these do a very good job. I've got two sets of them, one for my bike and one for Peggy's bike...
