How high does your 184BH sit off the ground? I saw a post somewhere, might have been on JOF, of someone who rigged up a sling between the frame members under the TT. It kept their tote well up off the road surface and out of harm's way. I thought it was brilliant at the time. Might be worth noodling out if this could work for you...

That's a pretty good idea. The TT is not that high off the ground but had more ground clearance than my tow vehicle and the trailer being so short shouldn't be much concern over RR tracks and the sort. I'll have to crawl under and scope this option out. Some kind of nylon mesh like a cargo net might work.

I saw this on another forum. This is a swagman bumper-mount bike rack, with the top section turned inward. This works perfectly with a 25 gal tote-n-stor tote (which I have as well. I waited for the bike rack to go on sale on amazon last fall:

https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0...?ie=UTF8&psc=1

I just put this on my rig this week, as we are leaving for a two-week trip this weekend. The first is mine, the second pic is the original I found a while ago.
It doesn't add much weight or torque on the bumper. No way I would carry bikes this way.

My TT is pretty small so as long as this doesn't block my tail light I'm in business. I'll do some measuring tonight.

This is what I did.

I got some angle iron and a cheap dolly from Harbor Freight. I drilled holes, bolted them together, and then attached to my bumper with U-bolts. I secure the tote with straps.

I bought the 25 gallon tote when we had a 184BH. You can empty both tanks fully with one trip.

Bit of advice on totes.. Learned this lesson the hard Very messy way. (don't ask) MAKE SURE YOU GET A TOTE THAT IS A FEW GALLONS BIGGER THAN YOUR BLACK TANK!!!! I had a 23 gal and now have a 42 gal!! Still having bad flashbacks!!

That seems like sound advice. Good news is, with a 9 gallon black tank, I don't think this will be an issue, lol.

Be sure it's good and clean and dry. Put it in a garbage bag and toss it on your bed.
