Just wanted to share my latest mod. I have had the problem of trying to figure out where to carry bikes while pulling the TT. After tons of searching on the internet, it came down to the rear bumper mounted bike carrier or a tongue mounted carrier. After reading all the horror stories of bumpers with bikes still attached some wherebetween the CG and home, I decided my best option was the toungue mounted carrier. I found a company in Canada that made them, but they were a little expensive, at $500. So, with the help of a friend ,that can weld, I made my own. After cruching all the numbers and making sure I wouldn't go over the tongue weight ratio...here is the finished product
We used a Swagman bike carrier. For the frame we used some angle iron and square tube. We also made it so it came be taken off the TT and put on my truck. All told, the swagman bike carrier was about $120 and every thing else was free, except the case of beer I bought for me and my buddy while we worked on it.
