Bike Rack/Cargo Carrier

Since I sold the toy hauler (and lost all that beautiful hauling and storage space) I need to find a way to transport my bike and some light bulky items. New 5th wheel has a 1 1/4" receiver. I'm looking for a lightweight (preferably aluminum) bike rack/cargo carrier that will fit. If need by, although not desirable, I can use an adapter to go to 2". I saw a few on Amazon, but they are heavy, almost 90lbs. Hitch is not supposed to carry more than 150 lbs if I recall. Any help would be really appreciated.
Rusty

How many bikes? I only have 2 and This One has been great. It's reasonably light and super easy to use once it's setup. Any of the Swagman carriers should be good quality.

Thanks for the tip. Found something that will have to work, an aluminum bike rack cargo carrier w/2" receiver. Just have to use an adapter. Amazon. Just waiting for delivery. Thanks again.

I bought a Lippert that mounts to the bumper frame that flips up when not in use. The best part holds almost anything any length!

That would be ideal. Is it a bike rack and cargo carrier? I need a combo. If so, I'll order and return the one I ordered.

They don't give this away expect to pay close to $300! I was able to get a local Lippert affiliate to order it which saved me shipping coasts. BTW very simple to install took me 15 minutes. Here is the link
