Well it's now October 8... more than three weeks since you posted Kevin. What did you decide? Did it work as you had hoped? Any problems? What would you do differently if necessary?
Inquiring minds want to know
Oops! Sorry! I got back to work and promptly forgot to update this post.
The bike carrier and hitch-ball combination worked great for our 550 mile round-trip. The unit is solid and didn't show any problems with the 2 bikes attached and pulling the 16' UHaul
trailer. I think the key thing was dedicating this drawbar to the bike hitch and not trying to take the bike carrier on and off. We just pull the whole drawbar off to remove the bike carrier. The unit was well worth the $75! I'll try to remember to send along a picture later this week.
