Default Re: ~ Bike Carrier Problem ~

I have the same problem, no receiver for the standard carriers I've seen. I have a Ford Ranger pickup with a topper and haven't found a bike carrier that will adapt, safely, to the tail gate. Getting the bike into the pickup bed is no picnic for one man, and because of the topper I have to lay the bike on its side...not good either.
When the weather warms up a bit, if it ever does, I'm going to look at making my own carrier; something that will hang on the tailgate and be supported by the step bumper.
Why doesn't anyone make a carrier for us guys with SUVs or pickups without hitch receivers?
