Ok, so we are going camping today till the 8th.... My 4yr old daughter asked me to bring her "wheeler" with us instead of her bicycle......It dosent really fit in the bed of the truck, nor inside the camper.... Hmmm well how bout' the bike rack I think to myself.. I think she will be happy now!! Just thought I'd share.

Awesome! You should paint the camper to match.

I hate to be a wet blanket but that looks like a disaster waiting to happen!

Ohhh boy. Lay it on me... I made it here no problem... What's any different than having 40-50lbs of bicycles?

If its only 50 pounds nothing if it is supported by more than just the hitch receiver. I visualize it flopping from side to side as well as forward and back if the receiver is the only thing stabilizing it. I may just not see your other support for it in the pictures.

HA - I was waiting to see a big ole' honkin cammo colored 4x4 honda on it
Bet that gets some smiles and "Awwwws..." going down the road

Looks like it hangs very well on the bike rack - and assume it's bungee'ed down...

as joe friday would say "just tryin to hep ma'arm"

Thanks Johnboytoo, your bet was correct. Driving down the highway there were the laughs from the men going by and smiles from the women. And yes the bars that hold the bikes fit snugly around the wheeler. Then I used a motorcycle ratchet strap to hold it to the rack.
No worries.

I'd laugh my butt off if I passed you on the highway. That's cute.

As far as the negative people, I can clearly see the yellow rachet strap holding that thing on tightly. Add to that you have a rear view camera to watch how it's riding. Looks pretty secure to me.

Oh yeah, you need to add some more pink duct tape to the bumper

Very observant sir!! The previous owner set it up to keep an eye on his grill while mounted on a hitch basket...works good. Clear picture of the "wheeler" in tow.. I gotta get back to watchin my girls ride it now!
