hauling a Honda Elite 125 Scooter

Hi everyone. I have a 1988 winnie minnie, 24ft on a Ford 350 chassis with a 460 engine. I will be taking a round trip to the south east, up the eastern coast to Maryland and back across on I-70 to California. I have a Honda Elite 125 Scooter, weight: 236 lbs. Can I put it on the back of my rig (I have a rack) and take it with me without putting too much strain or weight on the RV or should I get a small utility trailer and put the scooter on it? Thanks in advance.

If you have a rack already, skip the trailer. Just make sure you secure the scooter to the carrier as well as possible so you don't have to worry about it coming loose.This is your main concern.You should not have to worry about it being back there.I have been carrying a Yamaha Riva 125 for 5 years on a home-built rack with no worries.I do check it every time I stop, just to be sure.

Thanks guys for the input. The rack I have came from Harbor Freight and is not quite wide enough for the scooter to sit inside, but I can manufacture a "rail" with angle iron to stablize the wheels and rachet tie downs to hold it in place. I just wanted some other opinions. Have a great day.
