Using a riser is fine if that's what you need. No real analysis needed.
Like mentioned though, bet you can see the lights just fine through the bike wheels.

The Quite Hitch has served me well on the MH. With more limited hitch space on the cars it doesn't fit so I now use the following for $12 and the vice hitch is overpriced IMHO.

I have a bicycle carrier that goes in the trailer hitch. Instead of a pin, it has a nut welded in the hitch and a bolt that screws/tightens into the carrier.

I do not have the bike carrier yet, should arrive the end of this month or early next. I need to try it with the larger ebike, we have 2, his & hers just to see if I have to raise it or not. Never thought of visibility of lights through the spokes. Knew I came here for a reason. Might need to raise it a bit just for ground clearance if nothing else, being extended from the body & all.
And the carrier I bought comes with a stabilizer, so if I do get a riser I'd only need one for that.
Thanks for all the good suggestions and such.

Stay safe.


Our 2351D Phoenix Cruiser, Jack, has turned us from campers into RVers and loving it!

Are you certain it eliminates the play within the connection? I bolt my bike rack to my SUV, but the play remains.

I like what you have better. It does the same as the Quiet Hitch but at a fraction of the price, and seemingly more robust.

I was using it on the front of our mh. Yes it held good. Never used just a pin only so hard to compare.

Should be getting our carrier this week or next. That's when we'll see just what kind, if any, riser will be needed. Hope not. Just one more thing to buy and carry about.
I can see many new pandemic RVers getting disgruntled with all the "add on's" needed. We've been at this a bit now and still constantly adding or up grading something.
Tank sensors are next on our list. And it just keeps growing!!!

I agree.

As you know, we have owned our rig since new in 2007 and I still find little things to improve upon. It would make me crazy if it wasn't a hobby. One thing certain, the next owner will get one great old rig.
