This is a pretty good thread. I think the first time I saw a couple pull up in a toy hauler, drop the tailgate and turn it into a screen room in a few miutes flat, I about lost it.

That has to be the best option for extra space and hauling a bike!!

Another option, and I now if you're used to riding a Harley or a Goldwing then you'll just scoff this off, but we choose to haul a dualsport bike behind our Travel Trailer. It's light, great on gas mileage and gets us into places that neither a Harley or Goldwing could.

We went with the receiver hitch on the back since the bike only weighs 220lbs. Rather than go with one of the hydrolic lifts, which I drool over, but cant afford, we just had one welded up for a few hndred bucks and so far, 20,000 miles later havent had a single problem.


Here is what the rack looks like empty


Here is what the rack looks like with the bike on it


And even though its a dirt bike, I was sick of cleaning it. SO we use a DirtBag cover and now it stays spotless. The cover can be put on or taken off in under ten minutes

Just another option for you to think about

Pat

Perfect - I grew up on a dirt bike & would love to have one now too. The wifey is spoiled and likes the comfort of the Goldwing so that's what we do now. Not near as easy to load but we've got it all worked out. My philosophy on bikes and campers is that the best one is the one that gets you out there.

Finally someone who thinks like I do. Glad to know there are others out there with the same ideas.

K9amz, that is one sweet set-up!! To have the luxury of both street and dual-sport, is the best of both worlds

Greetings To All,
Brand new to this particular forum, but I already recognize many familiar faces.. .
My 'New Horizons' MotoMover was custom built, (their specialty), to accomodate my VTX1800 w/Hannigan Sidecar. The 'Rig' is 93" long, but the garage is only 73" long!
I'll gladly e-mail or PM the factory spec. sheets/measurements to anyone who may be interested. Works great and I saved quite a bit of living space.
(Hutch73r@yahoo.com)
Glad to find this friendly forum...

We have a 35' toyhauler. Trike goes in for travel with plenty of room for storage leftover. We bought an upright cabinet at Lowes then bolted it to the wall. We use that for extra storage also. When the weather is nice we open the ramp and use the garage as a sitting room. We don't have a tv there but some toyhaulers do have them. Also we can raise the ramp off the ground and sit out there if we wanted to. There is even an enclosed porch option from some of the awning manufacturers.

The important thing is if you have a toy ride it and take it along with you not if it is a Goldwing or a Harley.

Or, even a jeep!

Having done the trailors, lifts, pickup beds, etc., we switched to a Class A midengine Toyhauler.

We take the Harley, two ATVs, boat, bicycles, etc.

We wanted to carry two motorcycles and not lose living space. This was our solution. With hydraulics, the bike bed lowers to the ground to load/unload.
We had 10 great months with our rig and rode our bikes in some really awesome places across the country, but are now sidelined by health issues.
