We've done at least three different ways of what you're asking. The first was a gas motorhome hauling a 7' x 16' V-nosed totally enclosed trailer. That was by far, the cleanest, most secure way of doing it. But, because of it's nature, we were limited to only M/C transportation while camping.
So, Plan B came into effect. We changed to a D/P. We purchased an '04 Itasca Horizon 36GD with the CAT C-7 330HP. I purchased and installed a Hydralift M/C carrier/loader on the back. With that lift, we carried a Honda GL 1800 Goldwing and, were able to tow our '04 Jeep Rubicon so, we had the best of both worlds.
But, as time went on, we changed. We now tow a 2011 GMC Sierra 1500 Extended Cab 4x4. When we're prepping for a trip, I slide into the bed, a Rampage lift/carrier. It now carries the Wing. The trucks pay load is 1500 lbs. so, even with the lift and the Wing back there, we're not taxing the trucks suspension.
We've enjoyed all ways of doing it. There are plus's and minus's for each way. You'll have to decide what's maybe the best plan for your operation.
There are other ways too:
1. A tow-dolly specifically designed for hauling a car and, having a motorcycle across the front of it.
2. A fully enclosed trailer, long enough to haul both a car and the M/C.
3. A flat bed trailer " " " " " " " " " "
4. Some Gas coaches, namely one called an "Outlaw" and, one called "Canyon Star" have garages in the rear that can easily haul your bike and tow a toad.
So, you have multiple ways, depending on your needs and wants. Good luck.
