Whistler was correct - unit runs $666.68 + $125 for installation. My dealer was able to have it shipped inside another Jayco trailer they were getting delivered, so I was able to avoid the $180.00 freight charge (it's a heavy sucker). It only took a week to come in. Yes, I probably could have built one for less, too. But do I really want to? NO! Then who'd be responsible if it fell off?
There's another thread on here that talks about using it as a bike rack, and most posts don't think real highly of it for that purpose. It only has a tilt-up post for securing the bikes. I, however, think it would be an excellent base for the PVC bike racks that a couple other forum members have come up with.
Since I'm going to be using it for generator, blue tank, tool, & ladder storage, I think it's going to be great. Will use ratchet straps to hold everything in place, and a heavy wire bike lock for security. Should take a little tongue weight off my hitch, and free up loads of room in my truck bed.
I'll post some pics of it next week when I finish up my other mods & post pics of them. Let us all know what you decide.
Safe & happy camping!
