So apparently there is a 2" riser you can get from Mototote that will work with the 0 wobble pin. I was told that aftermarket risers will not work for the pin so if you're going to go this route get the riser at the same time. Height Adjust Hitch Connection
I've hauled some of my buddies bikes across county and a few trip to Colorado with my versa haul, all from SC. You don't even know it's back there. But mine stays in warm and dry comfort of the cargo compartment. Lol
I don't know why you guys are messing with hitches - 1 bike 2 kids 1 wife and all our camping stuff fits just right.
I dd try the aftermarket hitch but its too low to the ground. I use an "add a bike" carrier - it has a bar that prevents handlebar going through your back window. and its much lighter then moto-tote
Great info. I'm also concerned about that 165 lb bike/carrier limit, but as @imacd has illustrated, it is really a function of force and distance. I want to add a fourth bike on my 1up rack, but I'm over 200 lb total if I do. However, looks like I'm within that 500 lb trailer tongue limit if I convert everything to moments and compare. Apparently I can't attach an .xlsx, but here's a screenshot. Calcs are just sum(force * arm distance) for each item.
