Scooter on a 5th Wheel Bumper

Does anyone carry a small scooter on the bumper of their 5er? I was trying to figure a way to take a small scooter camping with me on the road.

Thanks For Readig...

I saw someone that had a slide in camper and mounted on the front of his truck was a nice motorbike. I am trying to get DW to do that and have a side car for her to ride in. We would be like Barney

I have seen several of these but don't have any personal knowledge on how well they work.

The ultimate single wheel trailer system.

Here is another option, I haven't seen this one other than the pic on the web.

I built a cross member with a center and two outer recievers. The center I use to tow a small flat bed for the golf car. The 2 outer recievers are for a motorcycle carrier that I modified. Works great. I have done this for other friends also that use it for a generator rack.
I'm trying to find a pic of the rack on the trailer but I don't know if I have one. I only have this one of when I just finished it and tried in in my truck.
If you have a local weld shop or fabricator ask for a quote.
I'll advise don't utilize the thin wall 4" square tube that is on the back of most rvs. It will not hold up. That cross member I built is 1/4" thick steel. The rack/ carrier started out as the carrier that CWSWINE posted a link to above.

Both. I made the rack to go behind the 5er. When I get to the campground, the rack fits my truck to haul a dirt bike around locally. I designed it for dual purpose. I just don't have a pic of it on the 5er right now.
