We have two trailers that have built in bike racks - Panda (with a rack on the tongue) and Nomad (with a roof-mounted bike rack). If you would like to bring bikes, the safest and easiest option would be to rent a trailer that has a bike rack on it. If you rent one of our other trailers, the best way to bring bikes is to have them on the tow vehicle, either in the back of an SUV/truck, or on a rooftop rack. Another possible alternative would be a rack that hangs on the rear of the car/SUV since it keeps the bikes closer to the vehicle and away from the trailer. Putting bikes or cargo inside a teardrop trailer is not an option. Teardrop trailers are not made for carrying cargo, and putting bikes inside the trailer could damage cabinetry or upholstery. Split hitches (two receivers on one hitch) with a bike rack in the upper hitch do not work. One of our trailers was substantially damaged when a guest used a split hitch to add a bike rack on the rear of the tow vehicle. Whenever the tow vehicle made a tight turn, the bikes on the rack hit the trailer. This not only scraped the top of the trailer tongue and the tongue box, but also broke the jockey wheel crank off and severed the fat 7-pin electrical cable! Obviously any setup that has the bikes between the tow vehicle and the trailer puts both the bikes and trailer at risk during turns.
