Yes there are many discussions about cargo boxes and bikes on the back, it worked for a few but most abandoned the idea after having trailer sway problems.

You're getting closer with the thread titles but it still needs some work.

Yup - but normal outcome is excessive sway or the part of the trailer the box is attached to rips off and goes bang bang down the road

AND you are reducing tongue weight, not always a good idea. Scamp adds an optional receiver for carrying bicycles, but a few have reported that even that additional load on the back has cause instability issues.

That sounds like it will really mess with your weight distribution...
