    I'm fine. I've just been busy with real life and haven't been spending much time online anywhere.

    Hey Caz,

    I just checked my Sherline scale, & it does go up to 1000 lbs., so we could use that to get your hitch wts. with various configurations of loading stuff.

    You'll still need to take your trailer + Traverse to a truck scale to get their individual & combined wts. as wet & loaded for a trip - including bikes & rack, etc.

    However, being down in OC & you up in the valley - it's a 1-2 hour drive depending on the day/time/traffic. But maybe we can figure out something in coming weeks, if you're ever coming south, or when we're going up north to some vintage rallies/camping in the Sept-Nov. timeframe.

    Alternatively, if you want your own, IIRC I found it online from the mfgr. for about $120 with tax & shipping, & it comes with their booklet on how to do your hitch & trailer weighing (which you can also download as a pdf or similar).

    My offer is out there!

    Cheers!
    Tom

    Hey cazul6,
    Glad you're making progress on your bike rack, sway, & weight distr. issues. I read your post, funny thing is I too have been in the A/V business for 20+ years. I own an Audio Video Automation company in Utah. Maybe it's our similar backgrounds that says "Don't accept NO for an answer"?? Anyway, best of luck to you.

    Caz, Just drill the extra holes for the pin further out first, then try not to cut so you still have adequate length to use it in both positions. No need to pay a shop, as you can cut those easily yourself with a reciprocating saw or cut-off wheel, & drill yourself too - or get a neighbor with the tools to help. Make sure to prime & paint the bare metal with Rustoleum primer & paint so it won't rust. Good Luck! Tom///////

    Hey Caz,

    This is Tom Trischler in Orange from your sway post. I really can't be tracking your topic with all the other misc. stuff on there, but feel free to call me evenings & weekends at my cell: 714-469-6769, if you have any other questions. It's just far more efficient to discuss something back-n-forth on the phone or in person.

    Seeing your rack pix, it looks like the Stromberg RV Bike Rack that I got, & you probably can easily drill a new locking pin hole to push it in further, since you have the extended rear bumper to give space for handle bars (cut the end of the tube shorter only if you need to to clear inside the receive or for the trailer frame/body).

    Do the further research & calls/emails which I & others have suggested to refine your set-up for bikes. I'm sure you'll get to something which works now, & as your kids & their bikes grow.

    Good Luck!
    Tom
