    That's great until you attach the actual ball (if you ever plan to do so that is). Otherwise, well done!

    Pretty good - I suspect that pin is eventually gonna rattle, though. I would give it its own separate slot.

    Speaking of storage, has any one noticed that you cannot fit the regular tire/wheel in the spare (donut) tire/wheel storage? Think of this scenario:

    You are on a road trip and the luggage compartment is filled with stuff. On the way, one of the tire fails and you would need to use the spare tire. After installing the spare you would need to carry the failed tire/wheel. But where would you keep it?

    I understand that the donut tire saves weight and as a result saves fuel. But why would the car makers not give us a bigger storage to keep the regular size tire.
