Scooter/bike rack ideas-- custom build?

We have a Vespa-like scooter and two bikes that we want to haul behind our MH on a hitch rack. We can't seem to find what we are looking for so we are willing to have one made. Anyone have any ideas or advice?

Max tongue weight is 500lbs. Scooter weighs about 250lbs so it's not too heavy. Is there a maximum length that you can build a hitch rack? We have 2 thoughts

1. A double receiver with scooter rack and bike rack in each receiver but I don't think that there is enough room to squeeze the bikes and scooter with racks that we have seen.

2. Weld a bike rack onto the end of the scooter rack

Here are a few resources:

Mighty Hauler

Cruiser Lift

Hydra Lift

The last two are mechanically operated (and cost more), but there are tons of options, even for trailers. If you browse those sites, you will see motorcyle and bicycle combinations on the back of rigs.

This site has plenty of low cost options for carriers:

Discount Ramps

Checked out the sites and the hydraulic ones are really nice but definitely out of my price range.

Check out Versahaul racks... I have used them for years. Very well made and for the quality, reasonably priced. They have a single bike rack that you can tow a vehicle behind or mount a hitch mounted bicycle rack to it so you can haul your scooter and bicycles at the same time.... I currently have a double scooter rack mounted to my receiver hitch one my motorhome that I carry two Honda Ruckus scooters on...

I had one of these for a dirt bike and it worked well. I would think someone could extend the 2x2 and add a couple of angle iron to hold bicycle tires.

We ended up buying a rack like this and we are having a receiver welded to the end so that we put a bike rack onto that. I hope it works. I'll post picks once we get it back and loaded up for our trip Labor Day weekend.
