2" receiver on Escape 17B rear bumper
I just finished installing a 2" receiver on my 17B.
Took 2 12"x12"x.125" steel plates from an old project, and glued them together with PL Premium.
Drilled a few holes, bolted on a step bumper receiver hitch, and attached the whole shebang with u-bolts to the bumper.
seems burly enough for a couple of bikes or a bin full of stinky slinkies.
Will take it for a test drive with bikes attached and wife following to see how much movement goes on when cruising down the highway.
