I have seen a sand buggy on an over head rack, sorta like a lumber rack. Underneath it were two ATVs, stored vertically. I do not know where the ramps were that allowed driving the sand buggy 7 feet into the air. This was on a one ton dually towing a pretty big TT.

The rain has stopped and the ground has dried out. The bolt you see sticking out goes through the hole in the frame. Mine were pre-drilled; I suspect yours are too. It's in front of the wheels (maybe you can see in the first photo; due to the angle I took the picture the tire is on the bottom of the image). The bolt in question is to the left of the white stripe (also shown in the third photo); there's another a few inches in front of it. The middle photo is from underneath looking up, so the bolt is sticking out on the far left side of the picture. I'm not sure if these help visualize where the mounting holes are/should be, but I was unable to get a better photo.

I need to see if thereís a way I can take my motorcycle with us on trips, the back of my truck is full with an ATV, but I want to try and take both. Has anyone ever had a receiver installed on the back of a TT that will be able to support 400lbs. plus? I know a sewer cover receiver is a no go and Iíve read about frames cracking and twisting with a receiver fabricated to the back..

Any opinions would be greatly appreciated; this has been driving me nuts.
To the OP. I am not a mechanical engineer but in the last 50 years I have built lots of stuff. Very few if any trailer bumpers are stout enough for much added weight. On many I don't even trust carrying a spare tire on it. But building a new bumper or beefing up the stock unit is very doable. The frame is okay for the weight, but the thin sheet metal bumper and the way it's tied in isn't.
All that said you can build or beef up the bumper to add a motorcycle rack back there. Only issues I'd have with it is the weight distribution. I'd guess you could move stuff inside the trailer forward to help out.
