    well finally got around to building a new bike rack for the back of the trailer, looks and installed in about four hours,cost was about 75 dollars, got the metal from a supplier and the bike rack from craigslist for 50 the metal was 22,i think it turned out pretty good and hold the kids bikes with no probelms.the rest of the pictures are posted in webshots.<img src="http://inlinethumb26.webshots.com/17049/2206698950100695191S500x500Q85.jpg" border=0>

    looks good but hard to tell if it is welded to the frame underneath the rear bumper or welded to the rear bumper...hope it is the former and not the latter....

    Looks like you traded the bumper in for a piece of I beam. That should last. Looks good!

    Nice mod, Brett!

    I was considering that for our ntu 2002 Roo 232, but I have a 4-bike rack with a 2 1/2" hitch that will require a beefier setup. (it appears to be 1 1/2" hitch. . .) Have you had any sway problems with a couple of bikes loaded up? That's my concern.

    This post is 11 years old. The photo hosting site 'webshots' went away years ago. The original poster hasn't been around the site since 2014 so you are unlikely to get a response.
