We had a trailer hitch fabricated for our 5er. HERE is the details.

I found a good 2-bike rack that uses the 2" hitch without an adaptor

Hope this helps!

Here is my hitch setup. The shop replaced the tubes that were holding the bumper then welded the 2" receiver tubes to the new framework. I have used the Thule bike rack for years - it is a pricey but very well built unit. The bikes are very secure and mount in just a few seconds.





Love that set-up. Can you tell me name and number of the bike carrier and why the two receivers? Only one is needed for the bike rack, right?

We've had a two bike carrier for over 10 years that attaches to bumper with "u"bolts and never had any problems. Easy install and easy to remove if necessary.

If your Chapperal has a spare tire on the back bumper like mine does, you can by a rack that attaches to the spare tire. The other way I would suggest if you don't have the tire is to just go to Walmart and purchse the 2" reciever hitch that bolts onto your 4" square bumper tubing and then buy a rack for the receiver hitch. No need to weld a receiver hitch to the bumper it all you are carrying is some bikes or a small cargo rack.

I just carry my bike in the truck at the moment but I will get a Pin Box mount, for sure. I need my class 3 hitch in the back on my fifth wheel to pull my fishing boat.
