help with mod for a dirt bike

hi i have a 2010 8265s and i am looking for some sujestions and or tips and ideas to mod my 5th wheel to carry my dirt bike. i have seen to options.


1. mount a hitch reciever on the back bumper and then add a sideways bike carrier. (some people say that it is too rough of a ride on the back and could damage the rear bumper)

2. weld a hitch reciever on the front king pin and then put a sideways bike carrier . (adds 200 lbs plus to my hitch weight but thats not really a issue with my set up)

so obviously with both options i need a sideways bike carrier which i have found one that can carry my 180 lbs bike and is not to expensive. so i am looking for any pictures or advice from people who have done this or met people who have. also if there is a way of doing this mod that i am not aware of please bring it to my attention. thanks

I would attach the carrier to the rear of the RV but if you have a way to custom make it yourself I would attach it to the frame so that you don't have to worry about the weight on the bumper.

When I was a kid we had a truck/camper setup and my dad attached a carrier to the front of the truck to carry a Honda Trail 90. Later when we got our first Class C motorhome he put it on the rear attached to the hitch.
