    Cheap Hitch Rack (wheelchair/coller carrier)

    I just bought a camper shell for my Toyota Tacoma. To this point I've been using Rocky Mounts QR mounts bolted to my hard Teaneau cover. Worked fine but I have to remove the front wheel.

    Now I'm looking at a 2" reciver rack system (Kuat/Yakima/1up) to carry 2 bikes as I am not interested in mucking up my sleeping area in the shell. The racks are running 400-500 bucks and can ONLY be used for bikes.

    Anyone use one of those cargo racks like this?
    For less than $100 delivered, I may still need to remove the front wheels and my Rocky Mounts bolted to the thing, but I can now haul cargo too. Is this silly?

    As far as I see, the only issue is that you need to find a place for your front wheels. I have toyed with the same idea, so of course I don't think it is crazy.

    If I can make a front wheel slot and use strong bunge cords I may not need to take off the front wheel. Pops has a tubing bender so this could turn out interesting.
