That doesn't look too bad. I'm just thinking if I'm going to be dragging an enclosed trailer around, might as well be long enough to sleep in.

would be a lot of fun, will do when i retire.

Just to resurrect this thread. Has anyone scored an original or templates for a light duty hitch?

The Fixer 03-17-2013 11:57 AM

Could be made easily

The Fixer 03-17-2013 12:01 PM

plenty of 928 material to work w/ back there/ attach hitch to.

and I emailed them for a price. I will see what they come back with. The site is all German and I am not that good at reading it yet... http://www.autoteile-shopping24.de/products/3379914/

Thanks for the info... If I can get one for less than a kings ransom, I would be willing to ship it direct to the folks that want to build in the 2" ball...

@F4GIB I too would be interested in a bike rack out of a 2inch reciever. but what confuses me is if the reciever is behind a flappy license plate then how is the plate visible when you are towing something?

Don't make fun..only 10 min. effort

Fuel tank replaced with Beer distributing device.

finish opening with 1" mild steel tube frame and then take it to a sail maker to seal it off.

Lightweight though and quickly done, no weight issues for tow vehicle.

It would probably leak a lot in heavy rain if not moving on highway..

sorry pic is way large.
you could make a shark train with a a few of these lol.. weight permitting... if you get brakes in the trailers you could probably get two or three lol. also you can get aerosol waterproof stuff that you spray on ageing raincoats to re waterproof them

The bike rack loaded with bikes obscures the plate on my Jeep. In 4 years, no cop has noticed. Not a significant risk.

...and I have the car! Gary, I'll check the paperwork you provided me,but I don't think you have that to me. However, I can take pics of the setup AND you can see it live of you go to Frenzy (without the actual trailer). It's so simple, yet so brilliant.

I did not. Sorry for the slow response. I gave up. I still would love to have this setup for my 89 with the hidden connection under the plate.

Still working on a trailer hitch . Its not as easy as one would think . The hitch on my GT is simply a plate welded to a 1 1/4 " reciver tube and bolted under the alum bumper ,a hole cut in the bumper ,with a flip down LP holded . It is VERY VERY light duty , a bike rack is out of the question . My 81 has a much stronger set up , but is visable . What I am working on is a high cap ,hidden hitch that dose not require the removal of the bumper cover to install like the factory one did . So you can use a bike rack and tow something like a class 1 hitch .
