    You could get a hitch basket to put that stuff in. With the hitch basket, you can remove it easy when not in use, or fold it up if you want to leave it on there.

    Thanks but not what I’m looking for. I like the idea of something like that one I linked in case I were to add the rotopax and jack or whatever else.

    Does that rack have enough clearance for the front (or rear) of the bike to fit under it?

    I believe so since it is raised slightly.

    Looks cheaply made.

    That does look super cheap. Especially for 370$. Whooee. This is a cool idea though

    If you have a 2021 as your profile suggests, that one you linked won't work anyways (they claim compatibility is for 2nd gens, it may work still but they don't list any 3rd gen years as compatible). I bet for around the same price, you could go to a local fab shop and they could build you the same thing, but beefier. I haven't seen anything like that before now, but it is a cool idea.

    Yeah I’m just using it as an example of what I’m looking for. I don’t know of any shops near me but will ask around.
