Just got back from a short 550 mile 3 stop trip around West Virginia, New River Gorge/Greenbrier area. Bike rack worked great no problem with tight switch back turns or uneven off road campsite maneuvers. Full lock turns in Wallmart parking lots, Gas Station pumps and of course, Bob Evens restaurant parking lot.
1. No Rock Guard Installed
, Have Large Mud Flap, I will keep looking for chips during our cross country trip this January.
2. Looked at extending the hitch
, but I have full lock clearance now and can still move bikes closer to car if needed. should have a all aluminum enclosed trailer by next fall for car/motorcycle/bicycles.
3. Jack Knife!
Yes very aware of limitations when operating while towing. Try to drive accordingly and I have the added assurance of the Mercedes-Benz Sprinter Chassis with Adaptive Electronic Stability Program (See: YouTube
) That combines ABS, Acceleration Skid Control, Load Adaptive Control,Electronic Brake Force Distribution, Brake Assist and Roll Over Mitigation
Stay Safe friends.
