I use a trailer but I don't pull a toad. The motorcycles stay clean, dry, safe and I have room for tools, an air compressor, etc. For the cost of all the stuff to pull a toad, we just rent a car when needed. 99 percent of the time we ride the bikes anyway. I really wanted a high roof van for a toad that held the bikes but in order to get a high enough roof, I'd have to go to a full size van. Then upgrade the hitch and get to around 7000 pounds of pulled weight. I wish somebody made a small van that could be flat towed with a really high roof. Something less than 4000 pounds wet but they are all to sort in the doors. Even the raised roof versions. If I could pull it, I'd buy a Ford Transit. It's a Trailer and a toad! They're RWD so it would only require a driveshaft disconnect. The Dodge is FWD.

I have been using a Mightylift for about 6 years and 40k miles and love it.
I carry a Softail at 650# and at times an Electra Glide at 850# and the lift weighs 200#
It requires a minimum of a class A hitch. I attach straps
to the RV just for stabilization as I have a one point hitch and they keep the bike from swaying or bouncing.
A three point hitch model is available and can pull a car attached to it.
I had channel iron braces welded to the frame of the RV just as a precaution.
It costs under 2500.00

Jim ... I see your rig doesn't have a tag axle. No problem with the weight hanging on the back like that? I like the idea but I've been leery of my Goldwing pushing the back down enough to affect the handling.

It is no problem at all. There was a calculation on a recent thread with a formula for calculating how much weight ia added to rear axle when tounge weight is increased based on the distance between thr rear axle and the hitch. On mine it added about 1600 lbs, well within my axle and gawr limits. The web page for mightylift may help, but I literally cannot tell the bike is there while driving.
