While on the other hand I had a proper hitch receiver which I purchased from Orbital Machine Works
a member here who makes one specifically for Scamps, that bolts on the frame securely and firmly. I also purchased the Kuat Beta rack
which is the lightest around and having owned a number of way heavier and far more expensive racks I am thrilled to say due to the Kuat clever design it does very little if any movement on the rear of the trailer when loaded. Unlike some of the more expensive heavier racks I have owned in the past that no matter what I did they wiggled - so would never put them on the back of a trailer. Have actually sold the heavier, more expensive better known racks!! Love the little Kuat rack.
I have no issues towing with bikes on the rear of the trailer BUT I would NOT put TWO heavy mountain bikes back there. Due to the design of my Scamp the tongue is on the light
side and not a lot of ways/means to get it higher unless I was to add a second propane
tank and add an overhead bin to above the bunk beads. So I load only 1 mountain bike or two light
road bikes & then but a cooler or a tote with gear in the trailer ahead of the axle
to balance it all out.
