Some folks look puzzled as I have 2" hitch on the front of my truck that I use to move equipment around and into tight spots in the barn. It is very easy to see where you are going. I also store my camper on a wagon that goes in the barn for winter and that is also easier with this set up. If I get a winch it can be mounted both front and rear depending.
Bicycles... I have a bike rack that goes into the 2" hitch in the front. It is nice as the camper rear door is not blocked and the bikes can stay there with a lock. Visibility is also fine and the headlights are not blocked. A bit more weight moved forward as well.
which rack are you using for that front mount? The wheels on on bike look a little low to the ground... ever crunched those on a steep incline?
