No I haven't had any issues but you have to remember a scooter is back heavy not balanced to the center as a motorcycle is. If you have an extended frame to the rear bumper you could have a welder weld a tee across the bottom of your hitch and then bolt it to the frame of the RV. I had my welder add 2 2" square tube extensions from the hitch to the the receiver portion just behind the pin hole at a 45 degree angle because of the close weight tolerances.

Mine was a 350# hitch and my scooter weighs 300 and the rack about 60. I also have a spare so I run a nylon strap around the hitch tongue up to the spare tire rim.

Make sure your hitch is bolted to the frame, not welded, welds can crack and break.

You are marginal especially with the weight of the scooters being off center. One good whoop de do might be an aw ****.

Tomorrow at noon I pick up the Motor Home. It has a new 4 core radiator, transmission has been rebuilt. I went in to se the carnage. The transmission shop owner had an RV 3 years older than mine in the back so he understood my concern. I had a new water pump put in it, all new hoses and belts. After I pick it up I am going to take it back to the radiator shop and have them fix a steering column component.

Dealing with AAA was a disappointing experience as was the tow company. I kissed both of them off and dealt with the transmission shop directly. I had them install a larger transmission cooler and new U joints too.
The tow company is covering all transmission costs. I intend to file a complaint with AAA over their claims person for that tow company. That should make her holiday.

If you have a radiator leak just mix 2 table spoons of yellow mustard with 1 table spoon of black pepper and put it in the radiator. The leak will stop within a few miles.... I've done it many of times and never fails...

Our company Master Mech. always carried several jars of Powered Ginger. Worked well in some of our Cranes. That was always a temp fix though.
