Can Topline Truck Bed Mounted Bike Carrier be Used on 2016 Chevrolet Silverado with Leer Cap


2016 Chevy Silverado 1500. Can the clamp on the UG2500 bike rack bar accommodate a truck bed with a Leer camper top?


Expert Reply:

The Topline Bike Carrier Truck Bed Mounted # UG2500 referenced in your question may work with the Leer Camper Top on your 2016 Chevrolet Silverado if the Leer top does not block the lip at the top of the bed side wall. The clamp on the Topline Carrier will grab around the top lip of the truck to hold the bikes so this small area will need to be clear of any hardware. I have attached an image that shows how much of the top of the side wall the clamp will need.

If there is sufficient space on your bed side walls with the Leer Camper Top, then this bike rack will be a great option. It features an easy installation process and can hold up to 2 bikes. The Topline Add-A-Bike Assembly # AB2600 can also always be added to expand the carrier by up to 2 more bikes if needed. The carrier also includes a security cable with keys to secure your bikes to the rack.

I have attached a video review of this product for you to check out.

Another option I recommend looking at if the Topline Carrier will not work is a Tailgate Pad like the Swagman Tailwhip # S64760. This will essentially convert your truck tailgate into a 5-bike carrier using daisy chain anchor points and velcro straps to secure bikes to the pad.
