Maybe this is a tech question, I dunno.

But.

Has anyone tried MAKING a hitch for an early bay? I'm not looking to pull a LOT of weight, basically a single axle trailer with 2 guitar amps a drum kit and a bass amp.

Near me there's a store called "Princess Auto" which convenient sells very little auto parts, but they often have hitches, my thought was to modify one to work on the bus. OR make one from scratch. I would like a receiver hitch so that when it's not in use I won't bang my ankle on the darn thing.

JRJ's hitches are the bee's knees. I have one on my '68, it is awesome.

I have one on Sunbeam. I would let it go for $120. I believe it was one of, if not the first one Jeremy made. Never hooked a trailer to it, and sadly Sunbeam doesn't get time to camp anymore. Sunbeam is getting fresh paint then she will be up for sale also.

The great thing about the hitch is that you can use stock or aftermarket exhaust and your bumper attached to mounts on the hitch and is fully adjustable. I have a small sailboat trailer that I was going to build into a mini tear-drop to match the bus.

That's a bargain. I had one made one for my Hawaiin Hightop and it cost me $200. I have a Jeremy hitch for my '68 panel when I finally get it on the road
