    It looks like a swim platform, doesn’t it?

    started a topic Receiver for Rear of Trailer

    Receiver for Rear of Trailer

    My friend Rick wanted me to fabricate a receiver that would mount to the cargo carrier on the rear of the trailer that would allow him to install a bicycle rack to the receiver, when desired. With this design the bicycle rack would be easy to remove from the cargo carrier when it wasn’t required. Rick originally wanted to use a piece of angle iron that he had for the cross brace, but I talked him into using a piece of square tubing, for improved torsional rigidity. I didn’t want the bicycles to bounce around too much -- particularly the heavier electric bicycle.

    Rick wanted the bottom of of the receiver to be flush with the deck to we installed the receiver tube offset on the top as shown below.

    I welded a tab to the top of the cross tube to close off the hole caused by the offset receiver tube.

    Notice the Fireball square that I used to square up the receiver to the cross tube.
