Toad Plus?

Finalizing an upgrade (BIG upgrade for us) from an old 21' gulfstream class c to a new Itasca 26 class A. We had used a hitch carrier for our 180 pound scooter with the GS. With our new set up we will be pulling a Honda Fit as our toad. We are planning on 4 down for the toad but now our issue is the scooter. Anyone try putting a hitch carrier on a toad??? Or is this just an insane idea? As usual, feedback always appreciated!

Well Sir, it's too bad you're that distance away. I have exactly what you need. We used a motorcycle carrier and towed a Jeep Rubicon for quite a while. It worked flawless. I carried what's called a Yamaha TW 200 on it and it didn't even flex any. That bike hovers around 250 lbs. I've not seen too many that will tow as well as carry the bike but, I'm sure they're out there. Here are a few pics of mine.
