It's been about 3 months or more since Electric4Me installed the hitch he designed on my LEAF. Not being mechanical, glad he did the installation.

My review: GREAT hitch. No problems whatsoever. Highly recommend it to extend your fun and versatility. Wish I had done it sooner--sort of the same refrain with everything else renewable. Wish I had gotten solar, EVs, etc. sooner.

My bike rack OTH is kind of shaky (Kuat) but wanted a light-weight aluminum which it is. But it gets the job done for the price.

"Camping anyone? Hitch is usually configured for carrying my bike. Now I just need to find a way to carry my bike and this trailer at the same time."

Can't you put a mount for the bike on the rear of the camper, and add weight to the front inside to re-balance it?

It says:

"Shoot me an email for current pricing."

But i can't find your email address... I am interested in current pricing and availability.

I don't check the forums very often, so a direct email would be best.

To keep the internet trolls from easily sending me spam, my email address is: paul at gilbertson dot net

Thanks Bill,

Paul

Oops! I thought my email address was visible, but it wasn't. I've added it to the text now, and sent you an email.
