Bringing along the Harley

Any one have a recommendation on how to either add a lift to the back of a fifth wheel or tow a motorcycle behind?

Not sure what kind of 5er you have (year make or model) but I would not recommend either of your wants.

The ultimate single wheel trailer system.

Sounds like you should be looking at trading the 5th wheel in for a Toy Hauler unit. A number of these rigs available, and when the Harley isn't brought along, you get a killer patio addition to your living space.

There are too many places where the total length limit of your rig (tow vehicle and trailer) cannot excede a certain length, along with not being allowed to two 2 trailer units. I do not know of any trailer or 5th wheel designed for the strength needed for any kind of lift mechanism.

I'm not recommending anything, but I do pull a boat and sometimes my golf car behind my fifth wheel. Have been to many states.

Ever looked at the Idaho Tote? Looks to be one of the better systems out there.I too would like to bring my Harley. That is what I'm looking into. I bolts right to the frame of your Rv.
