Hello,



been mia during the winter months, and as it's getting warmer, im back... (im sure you missed me)



anyway, here is what i recently aquired off of craigs list.



I from previous discussions there has been lots of do's and dont's regarding this. and those would rather trailers... but Ive weighed out my requrements and this is what i ended up with.



The tapered tire trough is almost designed perfect for my 5.10 front and my duro rear.



photos are of trial fit. currently im taking the tiedown straps and replacing the hooks with rings that cant be detach on accident.

I see that you have the same winning Suburban/TW combo that I do, excellent taste in vehicles!



I like your hitch carrier much better than mine though, the side lugs on my stock rear tire rub in the trough of mine. I think a Duro would just sit on top.

Hey Retro,



Welcome back!



Looks like you scored a winner with that MotoTote.



-Nice long, and wide, ramp.

-High side walls on carrier rail.

-Lights.

-Like you said, a perfect fit for the Duro or other ATV tire.



Looks perfect for your TW! Plus you've got a large enough vehicle to handle this type of carrier.

Boy o boy! Thats exactly what I'm looking for. I just noticed walmart started carrying the junkiest looking Hitch Haul that has 4 pieces of rectangle tube bolted together. I figured if I wanted one sturdy enough for my road trip I'd have to make one myself. This one however looks excellent. Maybe I'll be blessed and find one on craigslist.

If I put one of those on my Honda Element, front tires would probably come up off the ground...lol

Road report.



Worked great. couple of hundred miles driven, 10 or so on back dirt roads. few trails, once i thought the bike handle bar was going to smash thru the rear window when i hit a huge dip.



easy to self load and unload.



did notice that it was wiggling a tad on the return trip. stopped to see that the bolt that tightens the anti wobble feature had loosened up. Quick couple turns of the wrench and all good again.



JunglePlant or whatever they are called worked great.



i used a few 3m stick on wire mounts to hold the rack lights wires up... that failed. have now wire tied them.

youre prob right. on my 3/4 ton burb, the front end got noticeably lighter. which is almost a good thing, as with the keys lift i have, the front end was was very hard and rough to drive. the bike on the back almost made it feel like a 1/2 ton with no lift and very pleasant to ride in. would like to keep the bike back there all the time.

That is a great set-up. When my wife and I travel we have a folding ramp to load our two dubs in the back of my f-150...........The bed is long enough to close the tailgate when loaded.... It even works good while hauling our 20' camper.... OMM.
