I have a tent camper (pop-up) that I tow behind my 2008 F-150. Need to haul 4 bikes up to Maine (from PA) for a summer vacation. Roof rack space is used up by kayaks and a cargo shuttle. The bed of the truck is loaded with coolers / gear.
My latest solution was to add a dual hitch extender and slide a hitch mount Yakima rack to the upper receiver. I then put a 12 inch extender in the lower reciever and then the ball hitch for the camper. Needed the 12 inch extender to get the camper far enough away to fit the bikes. The whole assembly extends the mount for the camper to a good 28 inches behind the vehicle. I have not put this to the test yet, but wondering if anyone can think of why this is NOT a good idea. I plan on doing some short test drives before the eventual 1400 mile trip.
