2005 - 2007 Monaco Camelot Motorcycle Carrier

I recently purchased a 2006 Monaco Camelot DSQ tag axle motorhome. I also ride a 2012 CVO Road Glide and want to purchase and install a motorcycle carrier for traveling. Originally we do not plan to pull a trailer or tow a vehicle but eventually we probably will. The question I have is to those presently owning a 2005-2007 Monaco tag axle, which motorcycle carrier or do you have any do's and or don't for a motorcycle carrier to install? I prefer to do this only once and want to make sure I do not cause myself any additional issues. I understand from talking with Monaco that the chassis will support it but they suggested I reach out on this forum for information to answer my questions and concerns. I appreciate the help and advice!!
Last concern, considering carrying a motorcycle sideways vs strapping it down in a trailer (esp Road Glide since there are no tie downs mounted on bike) how do you tie down the bike on the lift? It may sound silly but don't want to see it bounce down the highway!

This is a new venture for myself and my wife that we have always looked forward to experiencing!

There is a recent Hydralift thread worth checking out. Not about the Monaco, your coach is fine, and the tag helps. I have an Electrglide Limited and installed the Harley fork tiedowns. Work great. I have bag guards just forward of the saddle bags I use for the rear. I use 6 straps.

Hydra lift or Cruserlift are the two primary choices. I use the Cruserlift and have had no problems. Have seen both systems as we travel around and all have been satisfied.
