Do keep in mind the tongue weight rating of the hitch on your coach is
greatly reduced by every foot of extension the device you stick in there
has. A 500 lb motorcycle has to sit pretty far back from the hitch so
the handlebars and such won't hit the back of the coach. This would
likely over stress the receiver on your coach.
As stated previously you likely need to add re-enforcement to the receiver
and frame of the coach.
I'd consider a nice little covered bike trailer. It won't over stress your
hitch, it keeps the bike nice and dry and clean and out of bad weather
and it protects from rocks!
A bike on the back of a trailer or coach quickly gets VERY dirty when
driving in the rain. VERY dirty!! UGH. If you try to cover the bike, the
cover will whip in the wind and scuff paint and chrome on the bike.
Get a covered/enclosed trailer!
OR buy a small toad and save the hassle of trying to find a car to rent
at each stop.
(There aren't any car rentals in Yellowstone for example...)
