Yes, I believe someone above posted photos of them adding a rear receiver where one could add a bicycle mount... Pretty sure they sacrificed the pull out step.

I posted pics of a 2" rear receiver tube tube I added to mine. Unfortunately all of my pics in this thread have been deleted as the site that hosted them changed its format. I will try to replace them in this thread but I don't find this forum to be the easiest to work with when it comes to posting pics.

EDIT - And, yes, I removed the rear steps. It was necessary to fit the receiver and it cut the weight by 16.5 lbs. We use a plastic step instead.

I added a hitch receiver to my Clipper. As mentioned above I had to remove the rear steps. I use the receiver mainly for a t-bar for my kayak rack. I also built it to reinforce the frame.

Hello,

Have a 2021 Clipper and so far so great as this is all new to me. I would like to upgrade the stock battery. We would like to do more camping on nonelectric sites. recommendations? We did try Nature's Generator (Solar generator) and it was pretty much useless. We are in search of another solar generator brand.

Thank you

You may have already found a solution but I have had great luck using portable solar panels and solar controller. I never plug my Clipper in and the solar maintains the battery well even when camping. I built a rack to hold then on the tongue and they kinda conform around the front.
