My rack for my Rhino on my shortbed Chevy
Here's my delima. I got a 37sp Sandpiper TH with garage. My wife refuses to have it out on the sand. We off road in Pismo. We have a campground membership in Avila Beach.
Previously we had quads. I towed my previous smaller 5th wheel with a flat bed trailer behind it hauling the quads. Now we have this newer 5th wheel and a Rhino. I'm not going to haul a flatbed behind it.
We camp in Avila, but how do I get the Rhino to Pismo? I think I've solved it. I pull the trailer with the Rhino inside to Avila. When we get to Avila I unload the Rhino and a rack for the Rhino to be hauled on the back of my truck.
STETLER had this buggy rack for sale. It was a great rack but it was in one piece, far to heavy to load myself. It was also made for a small sandrail. Nothing quite fit the Rhino. So I bought the rack and cut it apart. I had to do a few mods to make it for a Rhino. It breaks down into several pieces I can manhandle myself. Everything is held together with hitchpins. The rails can be moved in and out (adjust the width) to accomodate any suspension upgrades I may do later. I can leave the base frame (the part that mounts to the truck) mounted on my truck while pulling my 5th wheel.
So now I can haul the Rhino and the rack in my TH. We I get there I build the rack onto my truck, then load the Rhino on it. It also makes it great for day trips and not having to pull a trailer.
CHECK IT OUT! Let me know what you think....
Since the pictures it has been painted....
