Because most "vulture wagons" used on club tours will probably include a tow vehicle with a modern standard size hitch receiver or "receiver hitch" (not sure which is correct terminology) I built something for my pickup that might merit some consideration:

A short length of standard size square tubing to fit the hitch can provide some very handy equipment. About a 3 ft. length of square tubing with a small steel platform welded to it can be inserted into the hitch receiver and provide a small platform for use as an "emergency workbench" at a motel parking lot for instance. A couple bolt holes in the plate to use for mounting a bench vice would just beat the heck out of pounding on some "press-fit" item on the asphalt in that motel parking lot. This little length of square tubing with a plate welded to it and a fair sized bench vice thrown in the back of the "trouble truck" wouldn't take up much room and could be a "Godsend" sometime,.....FWIW,......harold
