Rear flip Rack

I have searched for this but did not find anything, but has anyone ever looked into one of these for your hybrid? It could have promise since it attaches to the frame.

I don't know of any hybrid that has double box frame rails, like those in the picture.
Without welding some additonal reinforcing materials, there's no hybrid that could support a loaded thing like that.

The trailer in the pics, doesn't look to be an ultralight trailer.

I did not notice the extra width there on the frame. Its on a tiny wolf pup trailer. Looking at there brochure, it would have to be the 16fq

That is how the frame looks on my Grey Wold 26DBH. It is all boxed out and reinforced. Runs probably two feet under the trailer along the frame to support the extra load.

Might want to try one of these:

Installing BAL Hide-A-Spare on a Mini Lite

I put it on my Mini Lite, but my 2012 Roo 19's frame rails were the exact same distance apart as my Mini Lite, so it should fit your Roo. If you install it ahead of your axles, remember that it will increase your tongue weight.

The spare tire location is fine, I was thinking of a place for the bikes, extra dump container, etc. I think I am just going to put a camper shell on the truck with racks for a canoe, kayak, bikes,etc.
