    The hitch receivers on the back of most Grand Design RVs are rated for either 300 or 350 lbs. tongue weight. I suspect an ATV would be way too heavy to go on a rack in the hitch receiver.

    By the way, you can create a signature block with your RV and tow vehicle information (see mine below). That way you won't have to repeat that information (and people won't have to ask) whenever you post or ask a question. You can create a signature by going to:

    Forum Actions (on menu bar) -> Edit Profile -> Edit Signature (under My Settings on the left)

    I built one. It is called a double hitch because it has 2 balls sticking out either side and a "T" shaped mount that slides into the hitch receiver and hooks to the two balls. The wheels are able to rotate 360 degrees. With this set up it will not jack-knife. I got the plans off Google but I cannot remember where. I built it 6' long and 8' wide. I will do a bit of research and see if I can find more for you. My ATV is about 300 lbs and I have no problems carrying it.

    Sorry, I have not been able to get you any more information, I will try to take pictures of what I built as soon as possible. My brother ( a master welder) and I built this thing about 5 years ago from plans some fellow put on the internet and I cannot find anything on this. I think it was on www.irv2.com .

    Yes, the one with the motorcycle is much like it. I built mine with 3' sq. tube, and the casters are underneath not on the side. I cannot see how it mounts to the hitch receiver on the trailer. I'm almost sure I got the wheels (3 - one spare) and all the metal parts from Northern Tool. I will try to take pictures soon and try to down load them here. I have never been able to do that but I will try again.

    I looked at building one as well but had trouble sourcing castor type wheels that were rated/suitable for highway use. This guy: https://axlesandmorebyjoellc.com/ makes one but it’s pretty pricey.

    Sorry about no pics yet. It is cold and snow covered out side. We may get some 50 degree days next week and I will try then. I have it covered with a tarp and that is still covered with snow.
