How is this kit made?
Most parts are cut by a laser CNC machine for clean edges, perfect joints, and accurate hole placement.
ALL of the steel parts are pre-fabricated for welding and pre-drilled to fit the recommended wiring harness.
A hitch receiver are handy for mounting a bike rack, additional storage rack, or a recovery tow point. This is our most popular upgrade to our teardrop trailers. We recommend no more than 100 lbs be mounted to this hitch receiver.
