5.0 slide-out generator carrier

I built a telescoping rear hitch generator tray for my 5.0TA. It is designed to slide rearward 10" for loading/operating, and then slide forwards for travel. Haven't had a chance to use it yet but I think it is going to work😃. Moved spare tire(42lbs w/brkt) to the front 5th wheel pin box. Honda EU3000 wejghs 200lbs about so I think it will be ok considering I removed the weight of the spare tire.
Has anyone else been struggling with how to load/haul a Honda eu3000?
Once again I will attempt to load some pics and a video.

Nice job, does it sit on the bumper to stabilize? I noticed it wobble a bit side to side when pushing it in. Those 3000's are sure nice and this solves the weight issue.

It wobbles a bit when telescoped out but of no problem when loading or running. When it's in for storage it sits secured and stabile on the bumper.
I am trying to add some pics of the finished unit, bear with my technical incompetence with this "loading" stuff��

My question is why does a Minnesotian need a generator for a/c? Does it get that hot and humid there?

August threshing parties can be brutal. Usually we will not carry the generator but when we do I won't need the neighbors to help load it anymore. Actually I intend to make some attachments for it down the road for carrying lawn chairs, barbeque or etc??. That's why I made the tie-down points in all four corners. Unlimited possibilities��. I'm even thinking about a solar panel attachment down the road.

Is anyone else unable to see the video? When I try to play it goes to a black screen and does a your add will close in 20 seconds, then starts count down from 20 but when it finishes the count down the screen still is black and no video/audio plays.

I had to update my Adobe player and then it worked.

Thanks cpaharley, I'm the one that put it on here and I cannot get it to work either��. Originally even the pics I put on were sideways, but now they are turned up rite? Darn mystery to me.
