I have a Sunseeker 3170 and I carry a 130 pound electric scooter on a carrier. The carrier I am using is meant for a "handicapped" scooter, but a friend of mine applied rails to it to hold the bike. I got the "handicapped" scooter carrier because it "folded up" when not in use. A regular motorcycle carrier does not fold up.

This carrier has been on FOUR RV's: A Sunseeker 2860, TWO Sunseeker 3120's and my current 3170.

Weight should not be a problem as even the hitch on my 2012 is good for 500 lbs. If you have a later model good for towing 7500 lbs you should have 750lbs carrying capacity. I have a small motorcycle that weights about 300 lbs which I carry on a motorcycle carrier that I bought at harbor freight for $99. Supposedly good for 500 lb motorcycles but I wouldn't carry anything heavier than what I have with it.
