Mighty Hauler for Motorhome

I am now looking at the Mighty Hauler for Golf Cart. I'm wondering if anyone out there, has one of these, for Golf Cart or Motorcycle? I am a trying to figure out if the platform would drag the ground, when going up a hill or elevation changes.

Just went on a round trip from WV to SW AZ with the mighty hauler motorcycle carrier and Jeep JK TOAD - I can only think of a few times where the nut on the toad towbar ball dragged on a steep transition on some driveways I have seen a platform for golf carts that goes into the receiver but has a wheel at the back 2 corners back to the question we did not experience any problems on our trip

I know that this is an old post, but wondering how you feel about your mighty hauler now. I purchased one about 18 months ago and although it is a good lift, my issue is the engine heat from my DP. I think that it is great for a gas unit, but it has been a problem for me.

Chuck,
What kind of problem has it been for you? We carried our '08 Honda GL 1800 Goldwing on the back of our '04 Itasca Horizon 36GD with the C-7 330HP CAT for over 8,000 miles and didn't have any issues with too much heat to the bike. I was concerned about it when I first mounted the lift on the coach and, tied the bike to it. The bike did get fairly warm but, as I stopped every so often on the top of a grade, I'd get out and physically check the bike side that was facing the engine and, while HOT, it was not showing any signs of damage.

Mighty Hauler

Scott,

Thanks for the response. We lived in the Bay Area then moved to the Phoenix area. We saw the problem in CA also, which is cooler. My first notification was when I lashed a freshly cut $150 Christmas tree to a rear deck that mounted in the same place as the MH and drove 45 miles home. The tree was pretty fried. I actually had to replace my handgrips due to heat on the right side of the bike. I am also worried about my seats, hoses and paint.
