Because of gas fumes, I wouldn't suggest putting it in the RV. There are many hitch racks available, like this one: TMS T-NS-MRC001 500-Pound Heavy Duty Motorcycle Dirt Bike Scooter Carrier Hitch Rack Hauler Trailer with Loading Ramp and Anti-Tilt Locking Device : Amazon.com : Automotive

If you have a receiver on the back, you'd be set. If you'd like to mount it up front, it shouldn't cost too much to have a receiver added in the front by a competent welder.

Hey Dan,
As previously mentioned it isn't hard to do. I carry Motorcycles on the back of mine when I don't need to drag the entire trailer and tools and gear bags, etc. Don't know your age or limitations (if any), things to be concerned with are height of the bottom of the rack, is there a way to tie down or otherwise carry fuel, things like that. If your RV sits high in the back (mine does) and your ramp is short, (mine is) it can be a chore getting it up there. Of course they make so many different kinds, there is of course one for every application, and they can all be modded to fit your specific needs.
