I had dropped a note a couple of weeks ago, about getting a bile box built, a ladder and the spare moved.

Nice. Great idea! [emoticon]
Is it supported by the receiver?

There and also where the spare was originally attached. If it were a 'thing'..it can all be taken off. Although some fibreglass work would have to follow.

Looks good. Exactly where a quality bicycle should be stored and carried.

Looks very well done. Is the box made of aluminum? What do you suppose it weighs? Just curious where the license plate ended up.

Weighs about 50lbs, according to the builder. Yes, all aluminum. The license/light...I will figure out in the next day or 4.

Yes..but also anchored to the original spare tire bolts at the back of the box.

That would be a good 'option' for RV manufacturers. It gives a lot of protected storage and minimally extends the overall length of the rig.

Looks good to me. Think I would add a shelf. Someplace to carry couple hooks, pulley and rope. Might be useful to get tire down and up if need to use it.

Looks great - I have a Giant Talon mountain bike - not sure which model you have - but I'd love to have this setup. Looks like room to add a shelf above.
