Good photos, Ross. It looks bomb-proof. I like the way the supports touch the tires, not the paint.

And a good illustration of why you absolutely need the extra LED Taillights if you plan to carry bikes.

What model 1up did you guys buy? Have any of the bolts come loose at all?

Only the 2 bike version is rated for RV's. I bought the silver or anodized finish. Some get black, but it mars up fairly quickly. Call them- they're the source.

Regarding bolts, I web-searched reviews for it and one guy said he had a lever bolt come loose and they sent him a replacement. Most of the reviews are at mtbr.com. Our last trip was over 3,000 miles and it is flawless thus far.

They are standard on the 21 & 5.0TA it seems; are they an option for the 17 & 19? You're right though- with bikes it could be hazardous(maybe illegal) to have bikes on the back without the upper tail lights.

We just got back from West Virginia Greenbriar River area. The trip was 360 miles one way. The bikes road great on the 1Up. The only issue was operator error of not properly securing the pedals with bungee cords to keep pedals from rotating and bumping the adjacent bike. I forgot to take a good picture of bikes on the trailer. So far so good!

Yardsale:

Easy to add upper lights - tuck wires behind the corner paddings with a not sharp stick (I used a paint stirrer) from the lower lights to the upper cabinets. That's where ETI runs the vertical wires.

Humm, I'll look into it if we decide we want the racks. Bikes get really dirty back there. I wonder if those corner paddings would come off entirely without too much effort.
Thanks.

They do. They tuck in/slide behind the cabinet on top and dinette/bed on the bottom plus one screw in the middle. I ran wires behind these for installation of a SeeLevel tank monitor and Trimetric battery monitor.
