Thanks - my wife calls the trailer a Guy Magnet. I have had guys run up to my truck while we are stopped at a traffic light to ask questions. It's kind of funny....Hey John nice set up on the trailer. I have a trailer not all that different than yours and I was eye balling ideas for putting bikes on it without using cross bars across the deck of the trailer. These would work. I see Ubolts used on the front forkclip? Have the plastic brackets held up OK against the Ubolts? I might keep an eye out for a couple of these
You can trim about 1" off the back of the rack and then redrill the elongated holes for the rear piece to lock into again. Someone on the board here did it... Look at his post with how exactly he did it here http://www.subaruoutback.org/forums/321652-post13.html .I just purchased the Yakima Front loader for my 13 Outback. It mounts quickly and easily, however, the hatch hits the rear end of the rack when opened. I was searching this blog to look for some advise. The obvious solution is to mount the rack on backwards. Wondering if there are any other solutions.
