Dual hitch extender plus bike rack plus tent trailer?
« on: July 01, 2017, 03:51:28 PM »
Hi - wanting to confirm this is not a smart idea

To get a bike rack between the tent trailer and hitch, using a dual extender and long ball mount.

See pictures for hitch tongue weight. Tongue weight of our tent trailer is only 135lbs, and the bikes will be kids bikes.

Thanks!
Ian

    Harbor freight also sell one that is a dual mount called the multi use ball mount and recover for about 40 bucks.  You don't have to add a. Extender.      m.harborfreight.com/multi-use-ball-mount-66966.html.     Hope this link works if not Google Harbor freight go to trailer receivers.  You will see the kind you have and the one I have mentioned. Also I think you can get it on Amazon.  That will work a lot better for you. I now a few people w/o use this type

OR you could mount a flat bike rack on top of camper if a popup. OR mount the bikes on the rear bumper of the camper with a receiver bolted to rear bumper, both options allow for you to open the rear gate/ glass of the TV.

I wish I could find one of those dual hitch receivers that had a tow weight at 5k or more.  I want to use the bottom for my toad and top for bicycle rack.
