Just a quick tuppenth worth of imo . That load on the trailer looks like its going to be putting a lot of twisting forces onto the S10's rear axle , I wouldn't have thought that the spec yam created was desigined to cope with that sort of load . Wouldn't your design would be better with a trailer type hitch off a subframe connected to the stronger parts of the S10 to allow the trailer and bike to adapt to road undulations camber changes independant of each other? any ways just my thoughts and good luck with it what ever you do...

It ain't easy. I once went to buy a Lotus Elise. The salesman just wanted me to test drive it.
I was more interested if I could get in and out of it. With the top on I barely could, very awkward
and a lot of grunting involved. The RZR 170 is very similar for me.

There is a trick to getting into and out of a Lotus Elise. Once you know it, it is easy - even if you are 6'2" tall. Just don't ever touch or try to use the windshield frame for leverage or support.

I don't know about the RZR though!

I think my problem was more width related. I found a simpler solution.

It runs in the family. If you're going to buy a lemon it might as well look like one.

Just happens that I took the day off today to tend and play with the grandkid. We made
a snow fort and "Tenere Tom" the snow man. She said "It looks like Papa". She's grounded now.
