I saw that rack at Northern Tool. I'm still thinking about building one,but I'm waiting for the 5er to get here.

I have a good friend that owns a welding shop and between him and myself,we can manufacture a custom fit rack for little $$$$.Thanks for all the ideas.

Wow 100 Lbs. So I just purchased a trike for my DW. I have a bumper bike carrier and I had to make a custom piece to support one side of the bike. So in the picture I have the front bar of the bike turned backwards to fit snug in the carrier. The custom support is on the back outside wheel area. The bike that I purchased is called Alameda and is lightweight aluminum. I weighed this one and it's 48 Lbs.

I love my recumbent TerraTrike Traveler! It certainly isn't a racing trike but it gets me where I need to go while we are traveling.

I start a topic the other day Hitch rack for Tricycle, use cargo haul?

I am looking at an aluminum cargo hauler from HF and a 4" hitch riser. My DW's tricycle folds and with the front wheel turned will fit into the basket. The rear axle will rest on the top of the basket with the wheels hanging down.
I call a few manufacturers and they don't recommend their products on motorhomes or trailers with any rear overhang of 6 feet or more.

We have a 2007 FR PUP and would like to haul our adult Tricycle, a Worksman side-by-side. We have an autistic son who can't ride without help, thus the heavy duty trike--weighs about 200 #'s empty. Our camper doesn't have a hitch on the rear. Any ideas on how we might take the trike along? Our tow is a "07 chrysler Pacifica.
