Rear Carrier and bike rack

I mounted it today. haven't attached the Bike rack yet, will wait on that, but it's nice out and I wanted to see if it would clear the ladder.
I am quite pleased with it. Very stout, no slop.
I still need to wire the male light connection in from the trailer.

(Edit, added picture of the Bike rack and generators)

Awesome!!! You have room for the 2 gennys and a bike rack. Is there room for the extended tank back there, too, when the bike rack is there?

Where I live I wouldn't be able to get away with that license plate. First of all, cuz my name isn't Ozz and second, there's no place for the registration tag. Do you plan to have a rearmount for the license plate mounted on the platform?

How about some pictures with everything installed and ready to go? Did you calculate how much weight you added back there with the receiver frame, the carrier platform, bike rack, bikes, gennys and fuel? Just curious. I do like what you've done!

On edit... never mind on the pictures. I did find other pictures you posted where the bike rack sticks out beyond the platform and you have plenty of room for the gennys and fuel tank....

Thanks Art
The extended tank will go in the truck, don't want 6 gallons of gas back there with a Bulls-eye on it for people to run into...
I had my plate on the bike rack before, it will go on the chrome connector Pc. in the center of the rack. That pc has to hinge up for the bike rack to slide in. I will wait, no need to have the bike rack in the weather for the next 6 months 24 days 18 hours, 4 minutes and 41 seconds...
No, I don't like to think about it....
There will be an extra 40# in steel over the last hitch I had, plus the carrier and Honda's.
It is what it is....

Seems like no more than 200 lbs and that's very good; I wasn't worried, just curious. Plus with the outriggers the weight is very well distributed. Nothing that you are putting back there weighs much except maybe the 100 lbs of gennys, because when hitting bumps, the weight "goes up". It's good things are nice and tight because that does prevent problems.

I've followed rigs that don't batten things down nice and tight. It is not a pretty sight.

Great job, as usual.

Thanks Art.

From a hitch company here in town; Croft Trailer. It is a heavy duty, well engineered one.

Looks like a very nice setup. Where did you get the hitch from? That is exactly what I am looking for.

Ozz I overheard a Keystone rep talking and the word is they are going to make you remove the Montana decals as you have made so many Mods to your unit that it no longer resembles a Montana except for the exterior outline. Maybe you should get some decals all call it the Ozz Mobile.

I know, call it the "Wizard" by Oz of Kansas.
You should consider getting out of the HVAC business and opening a Camper Modification shop - on wheels.
