Well Sir, depending on what kind of coach you have, gas or diesel, how long it is, what engine etc. You see, that can make a pretty serious difference in how you might think of toating a "Trike" along. We just returned from a 4 thousand mile trip which, entailed a huge loop from Lake Havasu City AZ all the to Forest City Iowa and, then through Minnesota, South Dakota, Wyoming, Utah and, back to AZ.
All along that route, we saw many forms of how folks toted motorcycles and trikes. Some, on the "affluent" side, had what's called "Stacker" trailers that were totally enclosed and, could haul their trikes and bikes, on the upper level and, then they had their Corvettes, Mercedes, Cadillacs, and more, on the bottom level. Needless to say, they were being towed by Newells and Prevost units. Just a few bucks, to say the least.
Then, there was the boys that had their trikes loaded into the back of pickup. There's several ways to accomplish that. Wooden ramps, (not good at all), aluminum ramps, better but not great, then there's the electric lifts, Rampage is one and there's quite a few more. They simply "lift" the bike/trike into the back of the truck and all you do is, lock it down and, you're set to go. But, that method of course, demands the use of a pickup as a toad.
Then, again, based on your coach, it's make, model, length, design (as in Gas or Diesel), you can utilize a lift/carrier on the back. One that has been mentioned is the "Hydralift". I used one on our present rig, an '04 Itasca Horizon, 36GD with the C-7 330 CAT. It is by far, the best lift/carrier on the market. It's also the most expensive. It's about $4,500.00 new and, usually will run about, $1,500-$2,000 for the install, depending on complications etc.
There's other type lift/carriers but, I'm not fond of how they work and, the amount of moving (and potential breakage) parts. Again, it's a preference thing.
But, to answer your question, yep, there's a ton of folks toting a long a trike, in many ways. Good luck.
