Bringing a moped ....

Has anyone brought a moped along with them? I don't want to tow a car every time we go on a short trip and wondered how it can be done. is one of those hitch carriers be a good idea?

A moped has pedals like a bicycle, a scooter does not.

When I got my Class B van/motorhome, I had no intent of taking a scooter with me but after selling the two Hondas I had (a 50cc and a 250cc) I went through withdrawls within days.

Now I have a 125cc Yamaha, and a heavy duty utility trailler I pull behind my van. It also serves the purpose of hauling my tools (in a bolted down, locking metal chest style truck toolbox) and some rubbermaid action packer boxes of personal belongings I can't seem to part with, nor can I fit in the van.

Who knows, I might find it's more trouble than it's worth but I highly doubt it. It offsets my van's horrible MPG by just one ride out on it. (80+ on the scooter vs 8-10 in the van).

My dad had a front carrier fabricated for the front of his motor home years ago. Moped'ed around campgrounds and nearby area for yeas all over the country.

Hard to imagine a moped being a "Beast" but I carried a 49cc scooter and then upgraded to a 150cc Tank. Both were kept on a small carrier that slid into the Reese hitch. I purchased a Scooter Bag to protect them from the elements. Worked for us for two years.

Moped/Scooter Carrier

Yep!

I have a Tank Racer 150 that we used as our only means of transportation on a couple of extended trips. One day we road 80 miles around Lake Tahoe that included some serious grades (for the scooter) since it is surrounded by the mountains. Used a hitch mounted "Versa Haul" carrier on the rear of the coach.
