Rear Hitch ATV Carrier??

Whats up fellas!? So I had a little extra time on my hands and I decided to build a homemade Rear Hitch ATV Carrier, any thoughts? Tips? The only problem I see is the clearance on the very end is reduced drastically. It is very sturdy! I weigh 270 pounds and I jumped on the ontop of the XX And started bouncing and it didnt seem to do anything.

Well I have a class 5 hitch on my bronco so it should be fine, and I used high quality square tubing. I guess we shall see.

Nice!! How does it work out for you guys? Me and my buddy are always riding together so I figured I'd give this a shot instead of hauling my 16ft trailer everywhere lol. #savesomegas

I wouldn't helping a few fellas here out with this but I would have to figure out a price that works for me. (Time, material, etc.) I'll tell you one thing though shipping is going to be hell of expensive lol this thing weighs a good 100lbs at least, I used thick ga. Material.
