The Easy Load Tray
Introducing Easy Load’s newest product, an outside the vehicle carry tray for your recumbent trike or handcycle. The ERLS Tray uses Easy Loads same unique answer to avoid lifting when loading a trike or handcycle, 4’ ramps which easily attach to the tray for loading and then stow on the tray when not in use. There is an option for a third ramp for those who wish to load the single wheel of a trike or handcycle first. The ramps may be used from either side of the tray.
The ELRS-Tray uses a standard 2” receiver hitch on the transporting vehicle. The frame is 48" left to right and 40" front to back. The three wheel trays are 64" long and are adjustable on the frame to accommodate handcycles and longer recumbent trikes. The wheel channels and ramps are 2.75 inches wide. The ELRS-Trays unique receiver hitch insert allows the tray, when empty, to be raised to an upright locked position. Each system comes with reflective red and silver safety tape for extra visibility for following drivers and tail lights featuring turn signals, brake lights and running lights. To save shipping costs some assembly is required.
*Is your trike running on fat tires? Check out the Easy Load Tray-XL here which has ramps a full 5 inches wider to accommodate wider tires!
Note: The bottom of the 2" receiver hitch must be at least 16" above the ground. If it is not, a riser will be required. We can provide a recommendation for the appropriate riser.
If a riser is required for the transporting vehicle to assure the 16" hitch clearance required by Easy Load, a smaller Hitch Tite is required for the riser shaft where it connects to the trike transporting vehicle. It is made of a composite material. Click here for Small Hitch Tite
