Frame Hitch Carrier!

So, I got sick of hefting my cat frame up onto my truck's rack and got this idea from a friend.

I got an inexpensive hitch carrier, a couple used yakima bars, kayak stacker hardware, and a couple U-bolts and no longer must I bust a nut getting my frame up on ye old rack.

I still need to put some carpet or wood on the base of the hitch carrier and inner edge so my frame doesn't get scratched up but, I'm stoked at the new easy of frame loading-without dealing w/a trailer.

Now that there's a nifty set-up. Thanks for posting it. Anything that makes getting on the river faster and easier is a good thing.

Nice!

I use a similar cargo carrier on my subaru legacy to tote my 14' boat with the cargo frame folded in half (loosen 2 lo-pro's) to make a nice and tight little package off the back of the ride.

Umm...that doesn't sound like loading it was all that bad?
