The safest approach would be to put both toad and motorcycle on a trailer.
You would have to be under the GCVWR limit for this. Putting the motorcycle on a lift would raise the load on the back tires, so you'd have to verify you are not going over the limit on the rear tires and the GVWR of the motor home as well as not going over the tire weight limits. Are you going to put a Harley or Goldwing on that lift, or a 50cc mini bike? Makes a difference.

Iím in sort of the same shoes as you. Did you look at these?

With having a tag I would think it would carry just fine.

For me I think Iím at the point of getting a small pickup and load the bike on that to pull behind the rv.

Lets us know what you decide.

I would go with a hydralift it looks like the best solution, it gives you the most options.

trailer is nice but you have to park it outside the park some times so extra cost

Things get pretty dirty back there. Scooter easy to clean off. Harley not so much. My trailer is just big enough to fit 2 bikes so often campgrounds will let me park it in place of a toad. Ride the bikes in, shut the door, clean dry bikes in the morning. I say trailer.

We had a cruiserlift on our Affinity. If you are interested, I have it for sale for $1,000.

Great price. The three tube hitch is a Hitch to build. I made one for mine. The cruiserlift is very sturdy. No doubt, if there is no tow then skip the trailer.
