Let's see your racks (storage racks only please!)

So i'm interested in seeing what all of you creative campers have come up with for rear storage racks on your campers. I'm particularly interested in those that required something custom vs. a direct bolt on.

The reason i ask is that my Arctic Wolf didn't come with a rack from the factory and because of that, the standard Lippert (LCI) fold down rack will not fit due to the shortend frame.

So let's see your SAFE, but custom racks!

Apparently, members of this forum only take pictures of NON-storage racks!

Tote attachment

Hooks right on to my Custom Rack with even balance on Tote Axle so only being pulled by TT and axles follow TT so there is no twist or torque on TT or Rack. Used real 1/4 in Steel Square tube for bumper..

That is the strongest looking rack I have seen. About how much weight did it add? Thanks Jay

Rack weight

By using 1/4 in thick angles and square tubing about 280 lbs. It tracks great with no sway and I keep the TT storage down to Min in the rear bunk area as well as the closets.
