u/jchance · 4 pointsr/TeardropTrailers

I searched for hours trying to find other examples of people putting front racks on their trailers and didn’t come up with anything useful for me, so I’m just putting this out there to help other people who might be looking to add a rack one day.

When I bought my teardrop trailer it came with the connections to hook-up a ClimateRight A/C unit, but didn’t have a rack to store it on or transport it. I tried a few things:

  1. The trailer manufacturer wanted $200 for a rack and they were in another state, so I had to pay high shipping costs.

  2. Local fabricators wanted $200+ to custom make a rack

  3. Most commercial “trailer tongue racks” were smaller, triangle shaped designs without the capacity I needed, specifically to carry my generator, ClimateRight AC unit, and ideally a gas can outside of the trailer.

  4. I looked at a few “hitch racks” and actually bought one like this cheaper Highland model. The problem is they were very wide, cutting in to my turning radius, and they were structurally weak without the “hitch” beam running down the center, which I would have had to remove to mount it to my trailer frame.

    In addition, I really didn’t want to have to drill holes in the trailer frame as I don’t have the tools for drilling in heavy duty steel.

    My solution was this- Titan Universal ATV Rear Back Cargo Basket, $79 with free prime shipping at Amazon.

    It came with mounting bars that are designed to clamp an existing rack on the back of an ATV, and the 22” x 39” size were almost perfect for holding my Westinghouse Generator (last years design of this model), AC unit, and a 5 gallon gas can.

    The only thing I needed to do was go purchase longer bolts for the bracket from my local hardware store (I used ACE instead of a big box so I could buy single bolts instead of large packs, cost me $2.50 total) and in about 30 minutes I had a steel rack clamped down to my trailer tight. Unlike the “hitch” style racks, the ATV rack had a full tubular steel frame that is rigid and strong and required no additional supports or drilling- I simply used the existing mounting holes and brackets to clamp it to the frame.

    Of everything I tried this is by far the simplest and best option out there.

This is what I just put on my Jeep, from another user here, and I love it! Cannot wait to go camping with it.

No need. I just popped this on in 15 minutes last night:

Edit: u/Sylux120 check this out! (There is also under-seat storage boxes: Click Here)

This is what I have on my xr. It works fairly well for side bags and it has mounting holes for a rotopax gas tank on the rear.

Gotta say, removable top box. Yeah they look dorky, but commuting is commuting so you do what you have to. There are some pretty cheap ones out there that can get you started.

HTTMT- 11"x7" Solo seat Luggage Rack For Harley 1997-2015 Touring FLH/T 97-15 (Chrome)

This rack on the back was easy to install. I had to drill 1 hole in the fender to mount it but it looks good as a solo rack if you don’t plan on having a passenger.

I'd recommend some nice metal panniers.

I got these guys.

They make the mounting brackets for a variety of other bikes as well so I can swap the boxes between my bikes whenever I need to.

I've beaten the holy living fuck out of these things for the last three years and they are still doing pretty good aside from some of the insulation at the top wearing out.

They do restrict your ability to split lanes though.
I dunno about your bike type, but you can get a bunch of other metal cans in fuckhuge sizes as well. The large tusk ones are about 37 liters, I know there are a few bigger ones out there as well.
