Receiver Bike Rack for a Tri Cycle?

Is anyone here carrying a Tri Cycle on a receiver bike rack?

This is a Worksman Executive 3 speed Trike (expensive >$500.)that has 24" wheels

Here are pictures and it probably weighs under 50# (I can lift it easily):

Unfortunately it does not fold like the 20" wheel models but it is easier to pedal

Receiver Bike Rack for a Tri Cycle?

We carry one just like yours. Same color in fact. I found a bike rack that allows you to carry 4 bikes on the same mount. Like this one. http://www.etrailer.com/Hitch-Bike-R...an/S64675.html
I also bought a ladies tube adapter to hold it. http://m.academy.com/webapp/wcs/stor...eviceType=true
We carry my bike loaded first all the way forward and the wife's bike on the last all the way to the rear. It would also be a good idea to use a strap to keep the bikes drawn tight so they don't bang together or against the coach.

Thanks Bflinn181 that looks like a lower cost alternative (I like low cost) I se that it is about 19 1/2" wide so I will have to see if the rear axle will straddle the shelf and see if the 59 1/2" will carry the front wheel - I have not measured the length from the rear axle to the front wheel,

If it does I can probably carry my folding bike and if not carrying bikes it would certainly carry our fire wood.

Thanks for the responses

You're welcome, but caution on the transporting firewood, many areas have bans on moving firewood, too big a chance of little hitchhikers being carried to new territory!

I would just tell them I bought it from a local guy and enjoy my fire no matter where it came from. They sort and package bark and wood scraps from lumber mills and ship it all over the US everyday.

Quite an attitude, in the midwest our ash trees are under attack by the Ash borer.

Yes I agree that we do not want any 'hitch hiking' insects that are foreign to our parks. I saw a lot of warnings about ash borers last winter in Florida.

I only carry wood to our local conservation area from my wood pile at home because I do not like to pay a dollar a stick for firewood when I am burning old tax records and other personal 'stuff'.

Nope, no attitude ......it's typical America to tell us to do things and they don't lead by example......now back the Bike Rack question
