@Richard Ludvigh Hi Richard For some reason I am having trouble loading photos today. The photo in the parking lot was at the Florida border, and it shows the bike rack with 2 adult size bikes. the rack was angled back slightly to keep the bikes as close to the box as possible, and still allowing the lid to open. I hung the spare directly under the partition between the cooking and sleeping quarters. It is suspended by a 1/2 inch galvanized carriage bolt. the floor above is strengthened with a piece of angle iron, which is also attached to the partition to further distribute the load. I should keep some grease on those threads. They are 14 inch tires including the spare and on a level surface there is 11 inches road clearance. The bins you see in front of the axle are removed for travel but are very handy for shoes etc as you are getting in and out of the trailer. They are cheap cement mixing bins from Home Depot. I have many more modifications that I will be pleased to share. A number of them in the works right now. These are great trailers, and good value. There are teardrops selling for 3 times the price and more, with some nice features, but better to buy one of these and add a few things for a fraction of the price. One of my new additions is an induction cooktop. No flame and cool surface so very safe and efficient in confined spaces. Boils water in about half the time as gas, but of course it can only be used with shore power. The inverter would drain the battery very quickly. Cost was $40 for the cooktop at Costco and $16 for 3 pots at Ikea.
