Was a newbie, now a Middie.
Looks very vulnerable.
To what, Brian??? Just looking at it as a possible resolution to the problem we discussed at Paul's do. Any points you can make would be much appreciated! (y)(y)

Iys pretty much like the racks you get for disabled scooters but with sides don't think it will take too much weight probably 100kg or something but handy

Just gut feeling. That's a huge overhand so massive leverage on the mounting point and a ball hitch is made strong for pulling, how strong is it to twisting.

Some day someone will stand on the outer edge, what happens ?

On a MH it's even worse because you don't know how strong the ball hitch is with respect to a downward load, the massive overhand means it's a long way from the beefy chassis, well it would be on ours.

And one day, when you reverse it into something or a prick nudges you, what then.

Was thinking the same. I'd prefer a small trailer to that.
