I have a great bike rack, hitch-mounted, but it's for my Honda's 1.25 hitch.
My RV has a 2" hitch. Folks have told me 'oh you just need a converter.
Okay, What exactly should I be looking for at the Auto store or UHaul or Home Depot?
Correct, it will save time. The one caveat is time of day you go through the area. Because it will bring you into the greater Sacramento area (the north east side), time it so you are not entering the area at commute time because traffic can back up in that area during those times (although, even with traffic, it will be faster - just more irritating).
We are going to try to make it next year. If I see him again I will try to talk him into coming. By then he should have his truck put together. We will see. Hey Chad is ambassador taking reservations for next year?
