Thanks for the photos Windydaboo. I don't think I've ever seen one of those but I can see where that would be a good solution to a lot of different situations. One more thing for my "wish list" at Christmas time.

BTW - who's the manufacto on that rig?

That's what we did. I've been using the overbilt for 2 years now and it's extremely strong.

The biggest deal here is having the 3 point hitch welded to the frame. You need to get a VERY qualified welder to do this work AND who will certify to its strength and carry capacity.

This is what I am using. For this carrier model, it is rated for 600 lbs, but there are carriers for full size motorcycles with ramps that tilt. On this one, I push it up the ramp. The scooter is not heavy. It is a Piaggio Fly 150cc

I just had a hydra lift installed on a Cornerstone for my Harley. It was an easy installation since we bolted into the frame. I like to have the choice of just carrying a motorcycle or pulling a car or doing both at the same time. So far no problems and I don't feel anything when towing.

Just learned of a new carrier called the mighty hauler. $1500 with a manual lift. Don't know anything about it but looks interesting

Your Welcome...

Believe it or not I found it on Craigslist. It was made by a custom trailer manufacturer who was downsizing and didn't have space to store all his trailers and was selling the extras dirt cheap. I got it for less than it cost to build. I have never seen another like it, only single axle versions which are much more limited. I can use this trailer for just about any purpose, camping or not.
I get a lot of interest in it when travelling, even considered having some made for resale.

Thanks. And yes, I'll bet you do get a lot of comments.

Gues I'll have to wait until I get back to Texas to explore this, there's a little place outside Austin that does some creative stuff. I'll steal your photo and SE what they say!

Unless I stumble across one in Florida. . .

I like this unit, seems simple (for people like me that very important) and the price is reasonable. I sent them a request for a price based on a few add ons I wanted.

Thanks for posting it!

Because the trailer was new and had never been registered, I had to have the trailer weighed before I could get a title and registration for it. The DMV also provided me with a VIN number, which I stamped into the frame in several places. BTW... if you don't want to pay taxes on the purchase, see if the builder will give you a supply invoice (an invoice showing the purchase of steel and the tax that was paid on the purchase). In Florida if you can show you paid tax on the parts to make the trailer, then you don't have to pay tax when it is tagged and registered. I saved enough for a tank of gas and a 12-pack!

The trailer weighs 1600lbs. However, the issue with this trailer is the tongue weight. Empty, it is about 500lbs. but when loaded, about half the weight of whats on the platform goes to the tongue as well. A vehicle on the dolly portion will take a little weight off the tongue because that weight is at the very rear of the trailer. I put close to 2000lbs on mine regurlarly. You need to make sure that your coach can take that much weight added on the rear. Pulling the trailer loaded shouldn't be an issue for you, just the tongue weight.

I have a Cruiser Lift and it works very good. It is very solid and sturdy. I don't worry that it will break or the bike will fall off. I double strap it in case a strap would break. I just watch it in the camera.
The bike does get dirty thats the downside.
I would like to have a trailer but I have no where to store it at home so the lift is my only choice.
The lift with a Harley Ultra Classic sitting on it is conversation starter everywhere you stop. Everyone has a question about it.

I too have thought about horse trailers, light weight, ton of room and low to the ground.

However I got word back from Mighty Hauler today. A unit to carry my Goldwing, extras like running boards, extra hold downs, heavy duty wheel chock and 3 point hitch, with shipping came to just over $1600, probably will be over $1700 before Im done......... Im thinking of ordering one.

I saw a Hydolift, this past year it looked like a nice setup carried the motorcycle nice and high and has the option of a "garage" ok, its a tent, but the owner said he had to take one peg off his Goldwing 1800 , when it was on the carrier, I use a 24' enclosed v-nose because dw wont ride in precipitation or 100 deg weather, when I back the car in and leave it to the rear the trailer is almost ballanced, motorcycle in the nose, but its long, like 65'
