Hitch installed and rack setup on my new KIA Forte.

My SUV was having major electrical and computer problems, so I fixed them and decided it was time to get a new car.  I priced many SUV's as I needed something large enough to handle the length of the trike.  Well everything I looked at was either to small or cost to much.  I decided to purchase a ECO Forte, install a hitch and a Hitch Rider rack.  I can't believe how far out this rack extends from the rear of the car. Any trike rack would do that other than a vertical mounted rack. Vertical mounting was out as I can't lift the trike onto the rack.  Now I ordered a backup camera system so I can get a partial view of the back of the car to avoid accidents parking or backing up.  The system will be here Wednesday.  I have already installed the wires from the reverse lights and ran a drag for the RCA cable from the trunk to the dash. So I am ready to install when it gets here.

Good choice, Joel! Adventurers like you need a ride that could take on all sorts of harsh weathers and terrains without a problem. I guess you will be with this Kia Forte for a long time, and will spend many adventures together. Cheers!
