I agree that that is a much better Hitch Receiver but he would still have to have the crossbar to mount it on.

Yup, I just assumed he got the "old" 1 1/4 (or is it 1 1/2") receiver with his 2024 Ollie. My mother always said, assumption is the mother of all "f" ups! 😜

I had looked at those.  They used a 2" receiver.  I want to stay with the stock 1 1/4"

HDRider,

The carrier with the box pictured above on my May 13, 2023 thread posted by rich.dev, was simple and has worked very well for me.  It does have a 1 1/4 inch bar not an adapter. The carrier that I purchased had both a 2 and a 1 1/4 in bar.  I also used a hitch clamp that stabilizes the carrier and it does not bounce around as was noted as a negative above.  I can verify this in my backup camera.  For sure, I stay under the load limit for the Oliver rear hitch.  I have also worked out a technique to slide the carrier box assembly without removing it, to remove the tire cover and spare tire.  I had to actually do this on a trip to Hohenwald last summer when I had a flat and had to use the spare.  In fact, I did it again today as I rotated my tires, putting the spare into the rotation at Jason's recommendation during a tire discussion on that summer visit.  Ron

I think I am getting this with an adapter that takes 1 1/4" to 2".

I originally bought this 2” folding cargo carrier for the front of my TV, but ended up replacing it with a bike rack when our ebikes came into play. Often thought about installing a 2” receiver on the rear of the Oliver to make use of this carrier, as needed. The hinge is very solid and stable; never noticed excessive movement from my forward-facing vantage point.
