hitch hauler for the prowler

I want to haul my sons little Honda crf50 dirtbike with us when we take the prowler out. I was thinking of a hitch hauler but all the ones built for motorcycles come straight out from the hitch. I need something that comes out then angles up so I won't get hung up or bang the hauler on something when doing light wheeling in the prowler. Any ideas?

this would be a piece O cake for any fab shop or an individual who has a few skills with a welder

name is Gary or hey you if ya forget

2009 Prowler XTZ , couple things added here and there
'83 CJ7 / SBC + whole lot added here and there
'01 Dodge / Cummins / Dually, a ton of stuff added here and there

INSTRUCTIONS FOR THE NEWBIES ...
1. Bring in a good load of firewood for the pit
2. start the morning coffee , strong but not burnt / boiled down , IMPORTANT start it early as many of us old farts get up early !!
3. sit a spell and swap some lies with the best of us

maybe a small utility trailer, and flip a drop hitch upside down to raise it. or have someone rework it if your not comfortable flipping it upside down

I do have 4 seats so not much room in the prowler bed. I'm going shoppping for one this saturday but if I don't find anything at the stores i'm going to order something like this: 2" HITCH MOUNT CARGO CARRIER LUGGAGE BASKET HAULER NEW - eBay (item 140511101691 end time Feb-17-11 18:01:27 PST)

And weld in some extra bracing as needed. Most of the ones i've looked at come straight out from the hitch and that doesn't give much ground clearance, but this one on ebay has a 5'' riser.With the kids in the back seat i'm thinking I might need to put it in the front receiver to balance out the weight.
