That's the one I'm looking for. The only ones I could find were the ones that are permanently mounted in the carrying position. Where did you get that???

Notice that it appears the mounts are a good 5' apart..likely inline with (or maybe even attached to) the mounting brackets for the bumper and not just a pair of u-bolts around the center of the bumper.

The concern with a center-mount (that is attached only to the sewer hose storage bumper) is not only the weight, and not only the side to side torque as described above, but also a HUGE amount of up and down force due to being so much farther back from the tires (compared to a car). I think I read somewhere that any bounce at all over a bump in the road will cause the up and down force on the back of a 5'th wheel or trailer can be 5 times the weight or ~~ 2,000 pounds of force, way not intended for the square bumper. (Maybe an Engineer can correct my math but the point is still there...don't mount things on the square bumper with any weight, especially if the bumper is light weight, and not heavy steel).

That is a good looking rack...I'd be interested in it too...maybe I could adapt it to fit on the back of my Honda Element toad.

Another option is to purchase something like the Curt Adjustable Width Trailer Hitch Receiver, model 13703. It bolts directly to the frame and can accommodate Box Frame, C-Channel frame, or I-Beam frame. This accomplishes the same thing as above, but may be a less expensive alternative to having one custom fabricated.
