cargo deck/carrier?

I would like to mount a folding cargo carrier to the rear of my RV. I want it mounted to the frame or rear bumper not to the hitch. I plan to carry extra propane and gas tanks on it when we do long trips. All I seem to find is hitch mounted carriers. Any one know of a company that makes a frame or bumper mounted unit, know of any companys that may custom build what I want? Thanks, Ed

Any welding shop could make what you are looking for. I would warn not to carry LP tanks on it, as this could be dangerous or even illegal in some states.

On one of my motorhomes I welded some receiver tubes at the ends of the frame mounted hitch. The reason I did this was to be able to carry a motorcycle, but anything could be welded up. If you cannot weld, I cannot imagine it costing too much to make what you are looking for.

Have you considered a bumper mounted hitch receiver? bumper mount receiver hitch - Google Product Search

Depending on the weight limit of your bumper, this would allow you to use a regular hitch carrier and not spend a lot on a custom item.

Why would mounting a propane tank on an outside storage deck be a problem? How is one to safely carry a spair tank?

Sure would keep potential tailgaters away!
