Rack Above Tow Bar? Not For Bikes

I am wondering if anyone has one that will hold a Honda 2000 and 2 two gallon gas cans. I am pretty sure I could design one and have a friend weld it.......
Thanks LeeB

Just be careful that it won't contact your toad when you make a sharp turn.

Make it nice and high above the towbar attaching point. I have a dual hitch reciever extension that I use for the bikes when I am towing my kit car. Works great.

Check out the Swagman RV rated bike rack . We carry ebikes on it and after 20K miles it has worked flawlessly .

I realize you're not planning on carrying bicycles , but the design may give you inspiration to fabricate something that will work for you.

Our MH has the spare tire mounted on the back above the bumper . The Swagman has a goose neck that slides over the towbar drawbar and offsets the rack to clear the spare tire and raises the bikes to clear the front of the toad.

Works great and provides plenty of clearance all around.
