Hi, This started in another thread where I added what I was doing. Now that I have used carrier a couple of times and done some mods, I thought I would share my setup in own thread to make easier to search. Wife takes girls on Scouting trips etc and usually has a pile of light stuff like sleeping bags and cloths. Sometimes tossed firewood in back of Odyssey. Kids have their skates and bits for trips to Grandmas. Nothing heavy, just taking up room. We needed a way round it if we were to downsize to 'V'. Installed Curt Hitch in 40 minutes. It's light, I rested it on my chest as I moved it up and bolted it on. Only issue getting the exhaust baffle plate not to touch and maybe squeak. Added 'Tow Ready 65855 36" x 20" ATV Cargo Carrier' with 1-1/4" shank. When we were looking at 'V' I asked salesman if putting hitch on would affect warranty. 'No, but I will check'. Manager came over and agreed and we wrote that on contract I was signing. Any problems will be with dealership if Toyota ever complain. Rack fits in back of V even with the shank attached. With carrier only a few inches from bumper the hatch will hit. With this carrier you can choose which of the several bolt holes you want to use and adjust distance from bumper. I was going to extend the 1 1/4 inch square bar through the hitch so we could slide the whole carrier back to open hatch and get in the back for unloading. Looking at the carrier I decided I could modify it to tilt away from back of vehicle and allow hatch to open without removal of carrier. I am using a lockable hitch pin as vehicle will be sitting out at night and wife doesn't want to have to remove carrier. See following images where I used saw to cut about 3/4 inch of 'U' section at back of the deck holder. I put back bolt in to hold deck on and gave it a shove down to bend the piece I cut. Push as little or as much as you want to have deck tilt back and allow hatch to clear and open. Enough room for me to get between car and carrier to unload, so wife or kids will have room to unload. Drilled out the other bolt hole to take a hitch pin.
