motorcycle carrier for Country Coach MH

Just purchased an 05' Country Coach RV, 36', quad slide, now I am looking for a carrier for my Harley Heritage Softail, approx. 700lbs. Also planning on a tow vehicle, and will need to accommodate that as well. Any advice? Thank you. Jerry/Phyllis

There are quite a few options for you.

This first option is extremely versatile. The same dolly trailer can be used on a TT, a 5th wheel, a pickup truck, a DP pusher, any MH for that matter. It comes in a lot of sizes, single wheel, dual wheel, low boy, winch assist, no accessories. Your choice. I have been at their factory and talked to the owners, good stuff...



from: The ultimate single wheel trailer system.





from: The ultimate motorcycle RV transportation system.






from: Hydralift USA ™ Motorcycle Lifts For RV’s




This is a vendor who has a wide selection of stuff:
Tilting & Folding Motorcycle Trailers from $1059.99 at Discount Ramps.Com



If you are going to use a pickup truck as a Toad, this is an excellent option to consider:

Pickup Truck motorcycle lift, Pickup Truck motorcycle carrier from Overbilt Lifts




This one is neat. The winch is gear driven, the bike stays strapped to the ramp always. When the winch motor is OFF, the winch is locked. The bottom of the ramp comes off and is stowed in the truck bed. See their video picture on the page referenced.



This same company has a lot of other stuff for you to drool over also. Look at their gallery page:

Just a question about the mounting of the Hydrolift.
What if any modifications do you have to do to the rear of a cc
in order to mount it.
Thanks.

This will be my choice in the near future Hydralift USA ™ Motorcycle Lifts For RV’s. You can still tow #8,000.

That's kinda what I've been thinking. It still allows me to pull my Jeep too.

These babies aren't cheap though!

I agree with the HydraLift. Had mine since 07 on a 05 Country Coach Inspire. It's built to handle any heavy motorcycle. I haul my Ultra Classic Harley and can tow my car too but frequently only take one. (Additional weight, if you aren't going to use it, uses more fuel.)

What about the clearance between the carrier and hood? I need the sport carrier attachment to haul two scoots. Pickup hood is about 60" off the ground.

To answer 2 of the questions about the HydraLift. Modifications are not required but it does have to be welded to the frame. Measure back from the rear axle and then inquire from a knowledgeable source about the weight with your overhang.
Towing a Pickup shouldn't be a problem because the Lift has it's own receiver considerably to the rear of the standard one on the Coach.

Hydralift

Recently purchased a "used" hydralift on Craig's list. It was less than 1/3 the price of new but needed some new parts and work on my part. At the end of the day my cost was close to 1/2 off. New or used these lifts are great. I wouldn't consider any of the other lifts. Losing the trailer was really cool and the lift is the talk of the campground. Good luck.
