Extended hitch with piggy back receiver?

Want to bring pedal trike n bike along and thought to use our cargo tray in dollied toad's hitch. Tonight saw a hitch extension that has another receiver welded atop the hitch bar extension for a bike rack or the cargo tray, so tray rides behind MH and above the dolly hitch. Any problems know with this set up? Would shorten the overall rig and reduce dragging the tray when attached to the back of the toad tilted on the dolly. Best alternative would be to toad a small 4WD pickup 4-down with bikes in bed but not in the budget right now. Tks, R

I have one and it has worked great no problems. Put it in and hook the Toad to the bottom and slide the bike rack in the top. Carry two bikes and pull a Saturn Ion. Works for me. Jim

I bought an extra receiver tube at Harbor Freight and welded it to the top of my drop hitch. I use it for either a two bike rack or my Big Steel Keg grill. It is about a foot above the tow hitch and doesn't interfere with a toad or a trailer.

Great ideas for solutions, especially the custom weld up if I need to get the trike tray above the hood on the dollied toad. Planning on a Master Tow with E brakes (available nearby) for our old Buick Regal 3400#. With bikes on tray and canoes on toad may look a bit "Clampet". Many thanks, R
