I guess I have seen to many items hanging or I should say bouncing down the road behind long 5'ers and TT's. Some of the bouncing scared me enough I backed off a safe distance expecting items to be bouncing down the road ahead of me.
When I purchased my new Designer it came with an installed rear hitch and a bike carrier. I sold the bike carrier without ever opening it. I just can't have anything bouncing around back where I can't see it. Maybe with a short TT or 5'er, but definitely not with my long one. I have a PlayStation 3 that lives in a cabinet at the rear of my Designer and over a few hundred miles it broke through the shelf it was sitting on due to bouncing I suppose. Either way, my rear hitch has never been used an won't be by me.
