OK, Think I have two to spare. Here's this Thursday's cat heading back after the bars close, maybe a bit wobbly.
Their not house trained though.

Thanks for the pic. What a good looking skoolie. It appears to be a Thomas like mine. I've already bought the receiver hitch to mount on the front for carrying my TW or a bicycle rack, but I've yet to install or test it.

More info on the TW and bus please.

OK. I gave it to my Daughter (former Son). Yes, our transitioning Daughter.

She built the bus (yes, it'sa Thomas) and lived this winter up in Bend (Oregon). She spent a week here at our place for the front and rear hitch and towbar attachment on the Jeep. Now She's gone for a 3 week trip around Oregon.

She's a full timer in the bus and works from wherever She is. The TW should be better served now than when I had it.

Yes, it'sa Harbor Freight bike carrier. We put it up front to keep an eye on it.

1992 Thomas. Great bus. Cummins. Allison. New tires and polished wheels waiting at the tire shop. well done inside and a wild paint job.

I don't know what hitch you are adapting, but I had a new Curt bolt on hitch for a 1975 Chevy pickup that fit with a small trim and a few 3/4” holes drilled and filled with grade 8 bolts. Fits like it grew there after an easy pregnancy.

Funny, how a 30 year collection of scrap iron can occasionally come to the aid of the shade tree fabricator. Both front and rear hitches took plenty of time to drill and bolt up, but I had them both in the pile and they both were as near perfect as possible.

The attachment point for the tow bar to Jeep, was a different story. If it had been a REAL Jeep, it woulda been easier... Nope it's a jeep Liberty. Took a day and a half for we two blacksmith log house builders to fab, but it came out strong and cute.

Anyway, one less two wheeler. I'll survive.



PS... I still have my near perfect VanVan that I don't ride much.

Youre a good frather Loghouse.
Hope she gets lots of good use out f both.
I did notice some stress cracks developing on my Harbor Freight carrier's aluminum saddle that wraps around the steel receiver tube. So I added square tube frame extensions to help support both ends of carrier making it much firmer.

Fred, when our HF carrier gets to feeling half the abuse that yours has endured, we'll start looking for problems.

In days past, I woulda welded up a bike carrier and it would have been heavy and stout. I guess as I get older, I'm willing to let the younger generation sweat and toil over the manufacturing end of it, and then ship it over here so I can buy it for next to nothing and complain about how cheaply made it is. I blame it on the failing moral structure of this younger generation.

And you are totally correct, Fred... I am a good frather. Thanks for pointing it out.

Well, you sure had us on the edge of our saddles there , LHN!
But that's a story with a happy ending!
Hope she enjoys it and I love that bus!
