Combo hitch mounted rack for dirt bike and cargo

I have a standard hitch mounted carrier for my dirt bike behind my Class A. Problem is that I'm usually toting around other bikes (some pedal; some motor), fuel cans, etc.

Has anyone seen a hitch mounted carrier that is more versatile than just the standard deals?

Thanks!

Hitch

It sounds like the most safe way to haul more than just one dirtbike is to look into a utility trailer. I had the same issue at one time because I didn't want to tow anything. One gain is that the bike rack used to drag the ground going into gas stations and low entries and the trailer doesn't have that problem.

Yes, I made mine. I started with a standard carrier which was rated at 500 lbs. Then I made a motorcycle tire cradle using (don't laugh) a wire loom trough. Cut/bent/welded to make the front wheel stop. It really works well too. Anyway, I welded some outriggers on it for tie-down eye bolts. I also had to replace the center receiver bar with thicker gauge material. The rated '500 lbs' didn't do too well with my 350 lb triumph. It had a slight bend to it after just a few uses. Probably from bouncing up/down. It holds one motorcycle and two bicycles along with ramp and gas cans.
ok, so on to the good part.. I was at Eckhart trailer hitches in Thousand Oaks, CA, a couple weeks ago and he had made a nice one, really heavy duty, for under $100. I was tempted to start all over again. Chances are you can have one made at any trailer hitch place the same.

This is EXACTLY what I'm looking for. I'm surprised someone isn't selling something like this - I'd buy one today!
