Inside Honda generator lockdown, gas tank hold down.

Add-on gen. lock and gas can lock.

That much rear weight may impact your towing. Also there is a limit on that receiver, possibly 150 lbs, are you weighing the contents?

Three two inch bars. I would guess 15# each. Aluminum box 80#, gen. Lock hold down about 15#, gas can holder maybe 2#. Generator guess 60#, full tank gas 40# so less than 250# but it's a guess for now. Drove 1200 miles for hunting with no problem.

I just have the single bike hitch receiver and I worry about slop in the cargo carrier causing damage. I've driven a wedge into the hitch receiver to try to prevent it from rocking side-to-side.
I also keep the weight down as much as possible and check tongue weight with a Sherline scale.
Have you checked yours with the box loaded for travel?

With the three hitches there is no wobble. The hold down for the gen. Is two parts. The bottom is bolted to the box. The other bolts to the honda 2000 gen. They slide together and lock in place. The gas can is locked so it can't move either.

Also, just for the sake of it, what did it cost ( including hitch receivers install ) compared to ETI's box?
