How much does it weigh? Are you happy with your mounting points and the rigidity of the assembly?
Hi Robert,

The grid charger is actually shown in one of the rear-end pictures of the extension, and this was done before driving the car the first week of October.

The wood brackets are already weighed and noted, but I don't have an official weight on the extension itself. As I close this project for the winter, I plan on making a summary page with all the stats and supplies used during the project, so stay tuned... But after lifting the extension numerous times, I would guess very close to 30 pounds.

Yes, the mountings seem very rigid, and I have not noticed any movement over some very old and bumpy country roads.

Jim.
