Hitch Receiver on Back of Flying Cloud

Has anyone installed a hitch receiver on the back of a Flying Cloud? Id like to have a 2 receiver installed on our 25RBT so I can slide my Kuat bike rack into it. Might help reduce the tongue weight, also.

Didn't do it on a 25' but I did on a 23' FB FC & it worked well. No problem hauling 2 bikes.

There is a company that offers a 2 receiver model specifically designed for Airstreams:

There are threads discussing this. It seems to be controversial around here. But I see no issue with it for a bicycle rack. It used to be a factory option.

We had the Ecohitch installed a week ago at Torklift's HQ in Kent, WA. Very impressed with the quality of the hitch and the installation. Our Kuat NV 2.0 fit perfectly, no issues transporting our two bikes this past weekend.

2 Hitch Receiver Installed!

We ended up having a 2 hitch receiver fabricated and welded on to our FC 25 RBT locally here in Traverse City. It worked well on our maiden voyage carrying two fat-tire bikes.

Lots of posts on this topic. Note AS does not recommend adding that type hitch to the frame for hauling bikes or cargo. Can cause sway with added weight back there. Like I said, lots of posts on this topic...and of course, opinions too! (recommended is the Fiamma rack, mounted to the AS lower frame and upper structural frame; no sway.
