Tony,
glad to hear another member knows about Cozy Cruiser! They are building a Canned Ham for me - the first one they have attempted. Wonderful people and I am thrilled with the build. :D

I stole that pic off the 'net after seeing one in Utah. You'll have to share some pics of your little road cabin when you get it.

Hi There,

I've just completed my build - Tigin Linn - Little House and Us - and I figured out a simple and effective method of carrying two bikes. If you have a look at these snaps it's fairly straight forward and it could be modified to work on a tongue box too.

I put an "extra" ball hitch on the tongue (drilled and screwed though one of the chassis members) and clamped a Thule bike rack onto it. Then mounted the bikes on that:

The hitch ball is 12" from the front of the teardrop and the coupling socket is another four feet away so when I am reversing the rear of the car does not get fouled up with the bikes.

Here is a link to the Thule Xpress 2-Bike .... it's really very good

Hopefully it's available in the US :thumbsup:

Cheers,


Larry
