2" hitch for bike rack

Anyone ever see one of these? Came on my new to me trailer. I removed it based on posts I've read on these forums. Click image for larger version

Good move to ditch the hitch!

Welcome to the forum, and congratulations for doing your research thoroughly. Good to have you aboard.

You might be interested in reading these threads about improper rear loads, which can cause sway problems, some out-of-control:

The first thread linked above concerns a roll-over wreck in Quebec, and although the thread is long, it makes for a good read IMO. If you look carefully at the photos, you can just make out a hitch receiver similar to yours.

Happy Trails!

Yup. Good to take the weight off the tail. You're just asking for problems if you weigh down the tail.
