    The hitch kicked my ass. Spent ALLLL day on it.

    I went with a 2″ receiver, it barely fits behind the bumper. Plan is to install a 1up rack to haul bikes.

    Looks good Franz. I want to do a rack for my bike off the receiver hitch too.

    I'm at the age where "fuck off", "fuck you", and "fuck it" answer most questions.

    Did you buy a bracket kit to modify or are you going to fab something up? I’m sure time will tell. Keep on it.

    I bought the vanagon/bay window bracket kit they had available. All I had to do was trim it down a little to get it closer to the gutter and clear the windows. I also welded a support bar to roof mounting provisions. I don’t think it would be sturdy enough without. The unit is heavy 75lbs plus.

    Painted the bumpers 40% flat black to pay homage to the original 80’s build. 😎

    That should look good! Can’t wait to see this one on the road. Moab? Can’t make this round, got “on call” that weekend. Couldn’t trade out this time.

    Nice work with the brackets, theres always a way in this ‘One size fits None’ world!

    Fiamma stuff is great, and i nearly fitted one on my bus, but in the end I went the opposite direction and fitted the repro-Westy tent to my bus.  I reckon it weights the same at least, takes 3 times as long to set up, the poles are always in the way and its no way water proof (yet)  On the plus side it looks good!

    Have a great day

    What a difference having some glass in makes in making the bus feel complete!
