Title: Rear cargo deck install
Post by: EdAbbey on July 04, 2019, 10:00:47 PM
I installed a rear cargo deck on our quicksilver 10.0 today. Itís a Curt 18100 Aluminum Cargo deck I ordered on amazon.  I assembled it without the 2Ē folding receiver tubes so it would sit flat on my bumper. Without the receiver tube, I used a couple pieces of 1/2Ē conduit as spacers when attaching the support brackets. To attach it, I removed the 2 support-pole brackets from the camper. I drilled matching holes in the rack and then reinstalled the brackets through the side of the rack, bolting it firmly to the frame. I also bolted the rack to the bumper.  I removed these  taillights and drilled the bolt hole right above the electrical access so I could install the washer and nut on the bolt.

Everything seems very sturdy. I think Iíll install a couple of fork mount blocks on the base of the cargo rack so I can transport bikes. If I do, Iíll post some more pictures.

I know someone has done this before but I canít  find the post where I stole this idea. My apologies for not giving credit where credit is due!

And are you moving the lights? Seems they'd be obscured now by this unit. Is that not the case? Thanks!
