Yes and the most expensive I've ever seen. Hmmm, $900 for Blue Ox or $3500 for Overbilt, easy for me. I'll push my bike up a ramp and save $2500.... It is nice though...

I've got the overbilt on the back of our Endeavor as well. The key part to this whole thing is that your bike does not cause your coach to exceed the rear axle weight.

Overbilt builds 'em strong and it required a 3 point special hitch be welded to the frame. We had it installed in San Antonio and getting the welding done was pretty expensive due to the amount of time AND the fact they really focused on getting it right due to liability issues if the rig falls off the back of your coach.

Most of these companies don't recommend putting a bike carrier for a larger bike on any Class A gassers due to the difference in the frames.

Good luck!

Just from your criteria, any well built one rail, 2" receiver type hauler with a ramp would do well. Plenty of used ones are on e-bay or your area Craig's List. The only thing I'd recommend would be the addition of one of these Amazon.com: Hitch Clamp Heavy Duty: Automotive OR Blue Ox Hitch Receiver Immobilizer II - 2" Hitches Blue Ox Hitch Accessories BX88224 This cuts down/eliminates the 'wag' you get with these types of carriers when loaded.

For just adding a small 190# scooter to the back of his MH, it seems some of the suggestions are really extreme. or everyone is very satisfied with what works for them. $900 Blue Ox and $3500 Overbilt's are a little over the top for carrying a small scooter.

Truth of the matter is I spent $97.00 on one and it'll work just fine. It did come with some anti-sway device but for the life of me I cannot figure out how it works. unfortunately there was nothing in the instructions about it and I just can't figure it out???

LSC9901, fill us in on what Name rack did you buy and where from. There was alot of good suggestions to this thread and your product experience will add to the volume of information that many of us RV'ers look forward to on this forum.

This VersaHaul is the one I use for my 600 cc FZ6 Yammy. Since I couldn't tow the car I had it was mounted on the back of the MH. But since I now have a car I can tow it's going on the back of the Jeep.

I have a Chinese scooter which weighs nearly 300 pounds and I use the rack you can see in the posted link from eBay for $74. It works just fine and not that hard to run the scooter up and down off it. My motor home has hydraulic leveling jacks and I find it easier to load and unload the scooter if I raise the front of the home as high as possible.

500 lb Motorcycle Carrier Hitch Hauler Dirtbike Ramp - T-MOTORSPORTS Online Store

This is the one I purchased. Keep in mind that my little Honda C70 Passport weighs in at about 180 LBS. Probably a bit more with gas and oil. They have them on eBay from this company at various prices. Some are with free shipping, others with 10% off. My complete total was $107.50 but I did have a $10.00 off deal so in all it was $97.50. My actual eBay price was $68.50 and the starting price was $67.50. Shipping on all of the different ones I looked at from this company was a flat $39.00. This particular company has several of them on eBay at any given time. Just search around and find the least expensive one.

Directions were so-so. It came with an anti-wobble device for the hitch but I'm going to buy one that is also a locking device. Probably overkill on my part. I can't imagine to many people would want to steal the bike but if they did and it was as easy as pulling the hitch pin I'd be a bit upset !! The locking pin will be around $23 through Amazon. I see these bikes on eBay often and they are going for far more than I have into mine so replacement could be costly. A few dollars spent on security/peace of mind is well worth it for me.

Hope this helps.

So I am starting to wonder if I need to spend over a grand forum 450 pound BMW.... The blue Ox needs to be welded onto the frame.... Have to give this some more thought now that I see others using much less to carry there's ....

Hey thanks for the info; I looked at the one on Amazon, looks great and priced low but when you read the reviews you find out why. Hmmm, the 600 lb gets great reviews though so am thinking that might be the one.....

LSC9901, looks like a real deal for your application. How can you beat the price!
Have not looked at the racks on Amazon but nice to see there are some good looking products out there that don't have "RV or Motor Home" attached (i.e. Blue Ox) with outrageous prices attached to them.
