Motorcycle carrier

I have posted this question just in the Lexington section and did not get a lot of response so letís try it with everyone.

Has anyone carried a 500 pound motorcycle hung off the back of their Class B coach? I am interested in type/manufacturer of carrier used and any problems or good points they may have encountered. Not really interested in info on using a trailer vice carrier, just reports of actual use of a carrier. I have researched weight restrictions and the like so please restrict comments to actual experiences.

I carry my 350 pound one on the back of my Class A. The rack claims 600 # capacity. Got it from discountramps.com. They were excellent to deal with and took back first one that didn’t fit my rear tire.

Then I figured out something awesome. My RV has hydraulic leveling jacks. I use them to lift the front all the way and get easy on/off.

Also set it up so ramp goes to passenger side. Then shift and kickstand are on your side when loading/unloading. I use engine to load.
