Default class b cargo carriers

I have a 1997 Dodge American Cruiser, with the spare tire mounted on the rear door. Any suggestions on how I can attach bicycle rack and a cargo carrier?

I've got a bike carrier that mounts over the spare tire. If you have a hitch then there are a number of cargo carriers that you can use.

Having one built now that will hold Honda Gen. and couple other items. I also have the spare tire mounted to my swing out back door. I don't want my carrier to stick out too far past my spare tire. So the tray will be 8" lower than the tire and just as wide as back door. So my generator will site to the right of tire

This will be made to slide into my receiver and i can swing it with my door ( with bar pinned to spare tire frame ) or by itself, to the left out of the way to get to the storage under bed.

There are lots of ideas here on this site, this is where i found mine and modified to what i wanted /needed

Here is one of the pages i found. It was posted by Markopolo back in 2012, i searched for Honda generator carrier, It is on page 4 near the bottom of page I really liked the swing out idea, so mine will be longer so spare tire on left and genny on the right

hope the link works, not sure if i did it right

good luck with your search for your bike and storage carriers

Like Davidk points out - there are several good topics on this forum. Here are 5 of them:

I think this is the one that Davidk linked to:

When you say "on the rear door" do you mean "on the rear receiver"? If not, do you have a rear receiver? I have a 1999 American Cruiser and they apparently moved the spare tire holder to a 2" receiver on the rear bumper. I also had a friend custom make a front receiver for mine, so I have plenty of options for outside storage.
