Butch,

Where did you get the cargo carrier? I've looked online and only found hitch mounted types.

Thanks,
Tim

I modified this one from Northern Tool. No welding but you will need a drill and a side grinder with a metal cutoff wheel.

Gotcha! Thanks. Looks like something I could even do. I'm assuming you used the grinder to cut off the hitch portion.

How did you secure the generator to the carrier?

Actually I used the grinder to modify the mount for the lp tanks so they can move forward to make room for the carrier. You will need a longer gas line and u-bolts to mount the carrier. The carrier comes unassembled you never mount the hitch portion. The two narrow bars from the kit slide through the channels on the bottom of the generator and mount to the carrier. Good luck. I have not weighed it yet, however I have towed it around for a while with no ill effects.
