They make tow dollies that have motorcycle carriers on the front. I don't know what your hitch capacity is. The motorcycle on the front might make your tongue weight to much for a small motorhome.

I don't think that MH is suitable for what you want to do.

I also think you are asking too much of the NPR chassis. A tow dolly with a motorcycle carrier on the front will probably have too much tongue weight for the chassis.

Most Jeeps cannot be towed with two wheels on a dolly.

Sell the Jeep and get a 4X4 PU and put the cycle in the back of it. They make cycle loaders that go in the PU’s bed.

The challenge is the combined weight of your Wrangler and bike. My 2 door Wrangler scales around 4300 lb, so that plus your Indian has you over 5k lbs, quite possibly exceeding your towing limit before any allowance for a trailer. If it were me (and I did full-time with a 5th wheel toy hauler) I would move to a bus that can tow at least 7.5k lbs which would then let me use an enclosed trailer that will fit the Jeep, the bike and a lot of other handy things for a full timer. I have a friend that does this with his 4 door Wrangler plus a dirt bike plus a smoker, a huge gas grill, an inflatable pontoon boat, chainsaw, and who-knows-what-else. When empty or partially empty there's your shop! Also doubles as a guest bedroom.

A trailer that will fit both of them, whether open or closed is your best option.

The Jeep is what 4,500lbs. or so, Indian 900-1,00lbs or so.

And then maybe add a trailer?

In any case, no matter how you stack it, I don't think your MH is capable.

The NTSB has stated for many years that "60% of all types of RV accidents are due to being over loaded".

So I also agree with Mr. D.

My '95 Wrangler lists at 2862 lbs. Get a lighter motorcycle, and an aluminum trailer.

I'm with those who say it's too much load for the NPR chassis.
