Do you have a picture with everything loaded?
The carrier for the bus tire is handy, but one has to be careful when making a sharp turn. I've managed to dent both sides of the engine cover because the tire hit it.

I can't find anything handy with the bike loaded, but here we are in the border parking lot at the Nuevo Progreso, MX crossing with just the Land Rover. Obviously I move the Rover back a bit when it's the only vehicle on the trailer.

Default First Trip

Okay guys here is an update on what we did. Basically I kept the same design that someone had hacked together before. Cut the old stuff off and welded on a new receiver tube and punched holes in some gussets to hold the safety chains.

Took my first trip with the setup this weekend and it worked wonderful.
