    I've gotten a lot of use from my ecohitch with a bike rack, but a big problem has always been the height. The ecohitch sticks out too far and sits too low to the ground. I can't get out of my driveway.

    Check out my new customized ecohitch receiver and cargo basket!

    Nice work. I haven't had any problems with my Ecohitch. I have pulled a HF trailer and connected a bike rack

    The existing hitch isn't low to tow trailer? I don't suppose you could provide a picture.

    There are some intersections near my house I couldn't driver through with just the ecohitch receiver. I would drag my butt through every time. I could, in theory, leave my new receiver installed full-time now (not that I would).
