I like motorcycles and camping

When I spotted the Grumman on craigslist, a major selling point was that the rear bumper had been extended and a wheel chock welded on. I upped the ante and built a rail carrier to add another bike. Main support is the receiver hitch, and the upper mounts are there for stabilization. I also picked up 2 receiver hitch lights, rewired them for 1157 bulbs and set them up to plug into the trailer wiring socket.

Re: I like motorcycles and camping

Nope, no trailer pulling when the bike rack is mounted. Use caution when mounting stuff up front, if there is a radiator there. Closer views of my pix show the old location of the spare tire in front of the radiator. After running without it for some time, I found the temperature gauge rose substantially with the spare up front.

Now I have to figure out where to mount the spare!
