Front receiver for Promaster/Travato

Has anyone seen a front end aftermarket receiver hitch assembly for the Trovato/Promaster. I found them for sprinters. Want to place my spare up front.

I would think very hard about blocking the airflow thru that front grill with a spare tire.

As to your question, I haven't seen one yet. Would be a good place for a bike rack if you are using your rear receiver for a storage box or towing.

Another idea would be a swing arm type of spare tire mount like Roadtrek uses on their Chevys. It mounts on the rear reciever.

Found One

Talked to the guys at the sprinter store who presently make front hitches for the sprinter. They said they plan to start making them for the promaster this spring. Thanks for the advice though on airflow; it has crossed my mind. If it becomes a problem, I would attach the tire to the rear hitch as it is now and use the front reciever for my bike as you suggested.

I have a spare on the front of a Sprinter and there is more than enough air flow through the holes in the rim and around the tire. ScanGauge confirms it.
