Re: Bikes on the top of your RV 
I would avoid this like the plague.

One problem is the additional height. If they are out of sight they are out of mind, at some point in time there will be a bridge that will be too short and then you have not only ruined your bikes, but the roof of your camper. I used to work for a wrecker service and there were too many instances where someone forgot about what they were hauling and tried to take it under a bridge only to get stuck and cause severe damage to their rig.

The other problem is getting the bikes up to the roof and getting them down from the roof safely. You really wouldn't want to throw your back out, ruin a shoulder or injure your self in any other way right before taking off on vacation or when you just get to where you are going.

I completely agree with this. Anything that is out of sight is likely to be forgotten about. Plus, it would be hard to judge the actual height of the vehicle if you go under a bridge.
