That U bolt clamp is fantastic, as is the Curt anti rattle pin. Use one or both of these and have never been happier, cargo trailer or hitch moto carrier or 6-up upright MTB hitch rack.

I have the Versahauler but the model I have has a thru hitch receiver.So I can tow 3000 pound trailer from the back of it.
I would not do that but they say you can.

I've used a Joe Hauler for maybe 15 years. Built in wedge you tighten to prevent wobble. Carried a lot of bikes on it from SMs to porky MV 1000s. Never had an issue.

Edit: I see a lot of pics, even on the OEM's websites, with tie down hooks attached to the rails with the open side of the hook facing the bike. One good bump and that tie down hook can fall right out of those rail loops.

Not to revive a dead thread, but I was wondering how this hitch mount worked out for you with the extended rear end. I'm currently doing the same thing, but am incredibly afraid of when I have to go to a gas station or pretty much anything with a semi incline. I'm debating between getting a lift on the rear of the van, or even a hitch riser adapter... But if you felt it worked fine, maybe I don't need it?

Rode this setup around the back roads of Oregon, Idaho and Montana fishing. Zero issues.
