I've learned a lot in the past few days about carrying bikes on a small fiberglass egg! This site has been very helpful. I would like to warn others of the danger of using a receiver mounted bike rack on the rear of the trailer. Scamp
gladly installs them as an option, eveb on a 13', but ALL the bike rack manufacturers are horrified at the idea. They fear the bounce on the back of a small trailer with no suspension will cause their racks to fail, no matter how well they manufacture them! It is MUCH MORE than a matter of weight
distribution and sway of the trailer itself. The consequences could be disastrous for anyone following behind. So please -- if you go this route -- find a way to secure the bikes to the trailer so if the rack snaps after continuous stress, the bikes will stay close behind YOU (not that you'd ever be able to ride them again!).
There are other much safer solutions. I've just discovered that front-mounted hitch receivers are now available for many vehicles. Sadly, my Toyota 4Runner is a 2006, and the hitch receivers are not made for models prior to 2007. But they are out there. So if this solution works for you, I'm glad it helps. Richard
