Dan,

If your concerned about the receiver hitch itself dragging, if the rear scissor jacks hit it will hit. It fits pretty right to the bumper.

Now in regards to a bike rack or cargo rack, all depends on how the rack is designed. Our bike rack exits the hitch, and then is bent upward 4 or 5" to add ground clearance. So I would just suggest to shop for a rack with that in mind. Or build/ have one built that adds ground clearance.

Darin,

Not sure on the price, was part of the deal.

There is about 3" between the hitch receiver tube and the bumper. I considered crafting a spacer to fill that gap, but, considering how I will use the hitch, it just didn't seem necessary. The Jayco hitch is VERY well made and very robust (IMO). I think if you plan on pushing the limits of the hitch weight rating, a spacer between the receiver tube and the bumper might increase, marginally, the carrying capacity.
