Frame width

Does anyone know the frame width on rock wood utralight series. Would like to mount an adjustable width 2" hitch for bikes. I'm out of town and shopping around otherwise I would crawl under with a tape measure. Thanks in advance

I understand I'm in the same spot needing to haul bikes. Curt mfg has a adjustable hitch that fits campers with frames out to 72". Let me know how things turn out.

Word of Caution: Lite wt trailers are not designed for add on hitches and will void the warranty and even more alarming, will eventually damage the frame.

Colem I sure will
Old coot thanks for the warning it is always better to be safe than sorry I agree. Not to say it won't ever happen but we have been doing this for years between my dad's campers and mine and had no issues with frames being warranted when they had issues. I'm sure though u might have more experience in this do u have any suggestions of how 150lbs of bikes would damage steel I-beams. This is a real question and no disrespect or ill intent was meant here. I learned very long ago to always be open minded and take in to consideration the things that the older and more experienced generation had to offer us young bucks

Lite and Ultra Lite frames are not the standard structural I beams, but are 3 pcs of 0.075" thk pcs of steel welded together and are not designed for the type loads that are induced by add on hitches. Unless it is factory mounted, I would refrain from making/adding any modifications.

With that being said, it's your trailer, do with it as you wish.
