We have a 2006 Holiday Rambler Diesel Pusher and we are looking to purchase a motorcycle carrier with a flat tow for our SUV. Looking for advise on what company to purchase from.

Which HR? What cycle? What is your rear axle weight? Hydra Lift makes probably the nicest lift with a good hitch.


This post is my opinion (free advice). It is not intended to influence anyone's judgment nor do I advocate anyone do what I propose.

I carried a Vespa 150 on a cheap motorcycle carrier behind my tow car. My hitch max rating is 350# which is twice what the scooter weighed.

My buddy has a Versahaul rack that goes in the RV receiver then you connect toad to that. Not sure what the weight limit is. He carries a Helix 250 on it.

I don’t like that the toad is extended but he says he can’t tell any difference.

Another option is a tow dolly with a space for an ATV, golf cart or any motorcycle.
I don’t like dollies but it’s an option.

Yet another option is a pickup as a toad.

I would love to carry a golf cart mice elf.

We had a Hydralift for several years, worked well. I think the best lift, but you don't say what model coach you have. You need to calculate the weight of the lift and the bike hanging off the rear to be sure your coach can carry it.

We have an Overbilt lift, and love it.

It’s half the weight of a Hydralift, and is the only carrier that the towbar doesn’t have to be removed in order to take the motorcycle down.

They have many different configurations, depending on what you want to carry... Motorcycle, ATV, golf cart, etc.

The customer service is pretty darn good too.

Had the Overbilt on my Phaeton with great results. Carried my Harley with no problems and still pulled the toad.

Depending on your axle capacity you may want to look at Tandum Tow's. We have looked at the lifts, but our bike and lift will put us about 1800# overweight on the rear axle.
We have a 39' DP on a freightliner chassis.

Not what you're asking, but I would consider changing toads to a large pickup truck and for hauling the cycle in the bed.
