I would like to add a platform to haul a couple of Dirt Bikes to the back of my 5th. Just wondered if anyone has any advice who has done this, or what i should watch for such as weight distribution, or other things one might not think of right away. Thanks in advance.
When I bought my '95 Sportsman 5th wheel trailer I wanted to have a shelf also. If I remember correctly the frame of the trailer was made out of 10" 'C' channel steel. I had two 24" pieces cut along with a piece that was the width of the frame. I cut off the 4" square bumper and then welded the two 24" pieces on. I then added the piece of 'C' steel across the two short sections. I then reattached the bumper. Next I cut a piece of diamond plate screen to fit between the two 24" sections that I welded on. Once this was welded on I painted everything black to match and added a spare tire carrier to the bumper. The system worked great to carry our bicycles and fire wood. I'm sure you can make the same thing even a little longer to haul a dirt bike but you may have to reinforce things a bit.
