I just started planning a trip west for next April and am finding that only a few state parks have pull-thru's. The layout of their back in sites won't make it very easy to unload the Shadow's from their garage if I do back the Sunseeker in, nor are they laid out in a way that makes them usable when pulling in forward If we planned on doing more than just over nighting.
I got to thinking that the only other option would be if I were to drop the trailer , turn the motor home around, hook it up to the front, and back the motor home into the site.
The solution to my dilemma would require a front mounted receiver.. Another added benefit to having the front mounted hitch would be that we could install our bicycle rack if we chose to and still be able to tow the trailer.
Once I had a plan, I started searching the net for a front mounted receiver for the Sprinter, the only one I could find is this one.

I am not sure what it weighs so I will be contacting Aluminess.com to find out but it can't be too heavy considering the light bar that is shown installed with it only weighs 25 LB. The site has the installation instructions posted. It appears that a DIYer with a drill motor, drill bits and a few hand tools can easily install it in a few hours.
Since travel plans and site reservations have been made for the rest of this camping season, I am adding this item to my Christmas wish list,
Check it out along with their other MBS accessories while your at it.
