    I have seen other posts on this before and most would not do that in case there was a restriction in cooling air to the radiator, intercooler, or trans cooler while driving. I know that would personally be a concern of mine......

    I've never had a problem with the cooling of my 6.7. Moved them from the roof to the front of my truck about three years ago. Pulled Ashland grade out of California on a 100*+ day. Everything did get warm but never danger hot. I have aftermarket gauge package to keep an eye on everything. The tubes on the bikes are small & create negligible airflow restriction. I could see a problem if you put a cover over the bikes to keep the bugs off them.
    I wouldn't put e-bikes up there, but then again I wouldn't own an e-bike.

    Thanks for your feedback, I think I'm inclined to put the bikes on the back of the coach, about 150 pounds for the two bikes (they are e-bikes) and 50 pounds for the hitch, is that too much for the rear receiver?

    No way would I want my Ebikes on the front of my truck. Besides all the bugs and grim that would cover them if it rains they would get filthy along with possibly elec issues. Thats why I put them on the rear with a cover.

    This is the setup I have used and it's with a standard (short) bed GMC. I got the totes at Lowes but had to order online because they don't keep them in stock. E-bike fits beautifully both in the tote, as well as in the bed of my truck. I have since switched to the Reese Goosebox as well as a 2022 truck and have even more clearance. Cannot help you with them getting wet although there are covers available. Since I don't camp in the rain they never get wet.

    Also I tried all the posted tricks to make the photos the correct orientation but could not. Perhaps a moderator can fix them.

    OK, some moderators may be able to leap tall buildings at a single bound (think Rob or Marcy), but at least this moderator wouldn't know how to straighten your pictures.
