Does Bigfoot not install a receiver on the back of their trailers, or is this an option?





My 21 fb came with a receiver on the back bumper. Choose your bike rack carefully as ours is a pain to load, doesn't hold them as secrely as i'd like and wobbles around. It is a dick's sporting goods model.

1UP is a fantastic rack. Install the rack in less than a minute. Load the bikes in less than a minute. Quality build too. A bit pricey, but we'll worth it.

I like the stealth of it. I may use an unappealing box to cover mine.

No sway on the trailer? Your balancing method is not what trailer manufacturers recommend. Weight away from the axle causes sway, and you cannot even it out this way. If your trailer is so short then it won't be such an issue.
To unload the tongue it is safest to move weight to above the axle, not make the axle a fulcrum.
