At the rear of the Escape is a receiver. When I get to the camp site, and only for a short manoever, is it possible to insert a ball receiver and hook the back end of the trailer to the back end of the tow to place the trailer backwards on the site? Am I making a little sense here?
Of course, you'd only need to do this at a really crappy site where you couldn't just install the hitch wheel and turn it around by hand.

Hi: Glenn... The view from here is BADD IDEA!!! The rear receiver may support the weight of a bike rack and bicycles...but not the whole trailer.

Due to the downward weight on the front of the trailer, .... I'm afraid you will find that you will have a tremendous negative force (Lift) on the rear of the trailer, if you should attempt a rear coupling to your tow vehicle.

Not necessarily an impossible task, .... but I imagine a very uncomfortable one.

You would find that the tow vehicle has little, to no, traction coupled in this manner.

M'thinks on of those two wheeled 'Bolor Strowlers' might work better. Two wheels works better than one.

You can customize them with larger diameter wheels and there's a motorized version too!!
