A nice, well-written, and richly photographed tutorial on building a sturdy, inexpensive trailer hitch antenna mast.  Just follow the suggestions outlined in this article and you should have little trouble attaching the hitch to your vehicle and supporting a lightweight antenna for portable operations.

In the comment section of the article, KE4ZHH suggests using a telescoping fiberglass mast with the trailer hitch.  One could easily use the tip of the fiberglass mast to support an inverted vee antenna.  Either way, this article is a good example of what can be done with simple materials.
