ATV RACK ON THE BACK OF BACK OF YOUR 5TH WHEEL

Recommended Posts

Hello All

 Has anyone run into the common problem of running out of room inside the trailer ?

     The toys get bigger and the trailer gets smaller lol

has anyone done this and did you make it or did you purchase it

what brand and where

Id like to hook it up with 2 receiver hitches so you don't look like a moron with a single hitch teetering back and forth as your driving down the road

Thanks

Where are you located? My buddy Greg at Desolate Motorsports in Santa Fe Springs made a nice one for a customer. He made this for a storage but he can do something for a quad.

Made my own, very easy and useful for a lot of stuff, I put casters on mine for those big dips! When I get to the dunes I unload and use for a Rack for my Solar Panels! Two receivers welded into the Cross Brace will hold a thousand plus pounds!

DIY'd mine when we had a TH (motorhome now).  Put it on hinges with solid braces going to the upper door frame area.  When I go to unload, I just pull the quad off, then undo the anchors and the extension drops out of the way of the ramp.  Anchors on the door frame were in the same spot as the anchors on the carrier so if I didn't need the rack, it could just fold up against the door.  These things are awkward as hell, so I made it easy to deal with and I wasn't dicking with mounting/unmounting 4 times a weekend.

To load, I'd put all the shit in the TH, close the ramp, then park the quad on the rack, hand winch it up to attach the anchors, then strap her down.  Unloading was a bit of a PITA with the anchors, and I may have just let her fall once or twice if I was feeling lazy... :hmm:

So the two tabs met up when the rack was in  an upright (stored) position?

Clever!

I wonder what the Law says about the amount of overhang you can have off the back end.

 

I enjoy these threads, making what you have work is how this sport started.....we can't all go buy a "Bowling Alley" triple axle 56" 5th wheel toy house :lol:

You may need to relocate your license plate to the outer edge of the platform.

Weight on the rear of the trailer is going to reduce tongue weight. Bumper pull trailers might tend to get tail happy.

I added lights to it with a harness, but you could still see the stock lights on mine.  Licence plate I left where it was, but I only had it for 1 season for I cried uncle on the toy hauler and went motorhome (see below).

Mine was a bumper pull.  Even with the buggy pulled straight in, still had plenty of tongue weight and wasn't bad at all.  I had a 250R in the kitchen with the front tire in the bathroom hallway.  Kids' quads were in the space behind the buggy tires between the engine cage and walls.

It is simple and cheap, slides in with a hitch pin! Easy with two people, but I have done it on my own a number of times! I thought about hinges but didn't trust them?

Mine goes into a single receiver. I use it on the truck for day trips. It doesn't flop around, I putt a tie strap from one corner up to the loading ramp latch for a stabilizer. It tilts with a slide out loading ramp, easy load.
