I have seen 2 5th wheels on the road with a bike hitch rack attached to the extended hitch pin.
Does anyone know if this is a factory made item, or if someone has adapted a regular bicycle hitch to attach to an extended pin hitch.
Thanks, LIKENIT

I made my own from 3" channel. It is attached by the unused holes between the existing pinbox bolts. It is not attached any where else. I also added a large level and a couple flag holders to mine. The reciever hitch I used was a yardsale pick up for a TT rear bumper. I am not sure if anyone makes a "factory" setup. Easy to make and use.

Thanks for the reply. Do you have any other pictures with a side view and top view. Good idea with the flag holders also.

I cut a 2" receiver down and mounted it on my pin box. This lets me put any receiver mount accessory on the front of the trailer. We use a 3 bike Swagman bike rack for 2 bikes, I have been quite pleased with this set up.

Thanks for the info. Do you have any pictures and do you have a long or short box?

Thnaks, LIKENIT

I had a trailer Co weld a reciever to the front of my hitch. I installed a plate and a truck bed tool box on it to haule my heavy stuff. BBQ Jacks and other stuff. It works great. I am going to remove the tool box and install a bike rack.

A couple years ago someone posted a link to a Utube video showing such a bike rack. The owner didn't allow sufficient clearance though, and the bike broke out the rear truck window in a sharp turn. FWIW
