Recumbent trike carrier?

OK, it MAY not happen, but if we end up with two recumbent tadpole trikes, I'm going to have to carry them somehow...... On the pickup truck. Which has a 5th wheel hitch in the bed. So, it's going to either be some kind of setup that I can set the bikes on in the bed above the hitch, OR a carrier that'll go in the regular hitch receiver.......

I've been told that nobody makes a carrier for 2 trikes, but that Draft Master may have some kind of adapter that'll let us carry them on a receiver hitch?

You might be able to rig something up by attaching a tray to the top of whatever locks into the fifth wheel mount. You could strap the rear wheel onto that if there's enough room for the trike in the bed that way. Then you only need a rack for one trike.

Perfect! Either an LWB recumbent or 2 trikes...

AND, for carrying them when we're towing the 5th wheel I can just get a class II receiver welded on the back and mount them there.....
