Motorcycle towing

We have a 2014 Vlite Wikks (34 feet, 9900 pounds max) and a Goldwing trike that weighs about 1200 pounds. Will be purchasing a diesel (f250, ram 2500 class or similar). What are any suggestions on attaching a permanently mounted carrier to the back of the vlite to carry the trike?

My serious answer is another TV.

I doubt very much the bumper and or frame would handle that weight.

I haven't seen any that are not recommended for motorhomes or 5th wheels only, not TT's.


I think you need to find another option.

But he looks to be a typical "one and done" poster, so it probably doesn't matter. LOL

That goldwing will be too much weight to permanently mount a carrier for it. Biggest problem will be the trike will unload tongue weight and make it unstable to tow.

Your situation is very similar to mine. It's why I ended up with a Toyhauler. I have a Freewheeler. My wife rides an XL1200L. And we have my oldest sister that often travels with us. She has a GL1800 with a Motortrike Kit.
