On one trailer i had i went to a hitch welding shop and had them weld a straight 2 inch receiver to the bumper. It was long enough to weld to a couple of frame members. It was very solid and I had no problems. Yes a bolt on adapter to just the rear bumper is flimsy. I know from experience. I almost lost a bumper!

I had an issue wih transporting bikes. My TT doesn't have a rear bumper so I went with the roof rack for my Excursion. I got 4 racks from EBAY. They were easy to install and will allow me to take three bikes. It was a good thing I got four racks because I had to steal from number four to mount three racks. They seem sturdy, but the real test is coming up Monday when we leave for Santa Claus, IN.

good luck with your trip to Santa Claus! Let me know how dealing with the bikes on the rook works out. As often as we'll be stopping, I'm thinking, at personally, it'll get old quick taking em down from the rook on the Yukon.

I had no problems with the roof rack. I actually forgot the bikes were even there. I carry a small ladder in the TT anyway, so removing and installing the bikes was pretty easy.
